Until Dawn stream tonight!

My husband and I have been planning this stream for a while, and it’s finally here! Tonight Juan and I will be streaming Until Dawn (PS4 exclusive game) over at the Press Pause twitch channel. For those that don’t know, Press Pause is the gaming website and channel (on Youtube) that I opened about a month ago.

Since both of us want to take turns playing the game while we streamed, we are going to be doing the stream from our living room. Thanks to a twitch viewer’s donation, we got the Playstation 4 Camera and are all set.

We will begin the stream at 5PM EST. I am super excited about this stream because Juan gets scared easily, and since Until Dawn is a horror game, I’m sure there will be some funny moments of Juan crapping his pants.

We will also give away two copies of Contagion for Steam (PC). If you’re interested, stop by the stream! We’ll see you there :)

Battle in Tyria

Guild Wars 2

Lately, when I have some free time to spend it on the computer, I’ve been playing Guild Wars 2. I bought the game when it came out but only played it once or twice. I had only leveled my character up to level 25 at most. I worked on getting to level 80 (which I did) and now I’m working on doing map and activities completion whenever I have some time to spare.

It really is such a fun game, and it’s one of the prettiest MMOs I have ever played. The vistas feature provide such an amazing addition to map exploration and the cut-scenes they feature when they focus on a specific landscape, it’s just beautiful.

My main character (the one I leveled to level 80) is a Human Elementalist and I’ve had a blast playing with that character. The great thing about this game is that, compared to other MMOs, it was more options of things you can do that add a replay value to the game (I’m obsessed with jumping puzzles!). Right now, I’m trying to get 100% map completion and I’m at 80%, so I still have some work to do. While I do map completion, I’m taking advantage of special events that happen around the region that I’m trying to complete so I can win some goodies and money for the character.

This game definitely became my favorite MMO, I like it even more than World of Warcraft (and I was obsessed with WoW back when I played).

Have you played Guild Wars 2? Do you like it?
