Game Grumps Live

It’s Thursday night and I’m cruising down Melrose. To many, downtown LA is a mecca of culture and artistic expression but for me it is a weird and terrifying place where some of my friends live for some reason. Finally I come to my destination: The Hollywood Improv. If the sign out front wasn’t indication enough, the line of people ...

Stardew Valley: A Harrowing Tale of Addiction

When most people think of video games they think of a blandly handsome white guy gunning down endless hordes of aliens/nazis/brown folk. However video games can be about more than violence. Sometimes they are about matching rows of colored blocks together, deciphering puzzles, or farming parsnips. As a kid, one of my favorite games was Harvest Moon, a classic series ...

Slime Rancher: Is it Streambait? (No.)

This evening, my friends, I delved a bit too deep into the YouTubes. I plumbed the depths of YouTubery, looking for something beyond LP, something beyond narcissistic self-referential cacophoners (see Markiplier) and I believe I hit bedrock. I found The Markiplier YTP Collab on the obscure channel NationofOranges696 and I absorbed 2,461 seconds of mashup methamphetamine. My initial impression of ...

FRANKIEonPCin1080P And the Art of Medieval Griefing

Reign of Kings, FrankieonPCin1080P, Conan, Sada, Griefing

Of LPers, there are several different species. There are the pack hunters (see Vanoss), the loony bins (see PewDiePie), the harpies (see Markiplier), and the LPer genus who are actually skilled gamers. For the most part, these are ‘achievement hunters,’ waiting to be recognized by their favored message board or subreddit for completing a daring timed Ocarina of Time run. ...

The Markiplier Dream.exe: Dave Coulier Syndrome

Markiplier, LP, Indie Games, Dream

Casually delving into a maze of mirrors is a dangerous pastime. In attempting to cover Markiplier, the LP community’s baritone idiot-sage, I first staggered into his Join me on an Adventure! | Dream.exe Markiplier Fan Game Part 1. A video in which he LPs a game designed for him, specifically. Dream.exe (created by DecreeB of Recalibrate Games) features Markiplier, himself, ...
