My Weekly Adventures #43

Yesterday I already did the Mother’s Day recap, you can all head over to check that out HERE if you missed it!

The last two weeks went by in a flash, pretty much like 2017 has been. It hasn’t all been sunshine and rainbows (figuratively and literally), seeing as Montreal had a state of emergency issued over the weekend for the amount of rain we had been getting and flooding in various districts. It was a mess to say the very least. However, this coming week is looking up. We’re supposed to get a ton of sunny days and great weather finally! 🙂

Game Warp & Youtube

Perhaps one of the biggest things to go on in the last two weeks is the move from That Moment In’s Youtube to Game Warp’s own Youtube. It has taken us a year to make this decision but for us, despite having to restart on the subscriber count, its a fresh start. There were many reasons into doing this. We’re still under That Moment In and write our articles under that but as my post HERE explained, it opens up the option for us to make other types of videos. Of course, if you were subscribed over at That Moment In for gaming and didn’t see my notice, head on over to our Youtube HERE and subscribe to not miss out on what’s coming up. We are aiming to have content every day but we are only two people and rely heavily on what we have access too so it might not always be playthroughs on new games however we try the best we can to stay current or at least dive into the indie scene and give devs their space or highlight games that we’ve tried out no matter what they are.

For more info on this, I urge you to click on the link above to read more. I don’t want to be too repetitive for those who have read that post. Game Warp is a ton of fun but if you aren’t into gaming, that’s alright, I’m still here chatting up on everything else that you enjoy! 🙂

Cirque du Soleil –  Volta

Volta

Volta

Two Fridays ago, my girl friends and I had a night out to go to see Cirque du Soleil Volta. I love Cirque du Soleil. Two years ago, I went to go see Kurios. Its probably somewhere on the blog, probably a My Weekly Adventures a while back. We didn’t get really great seats and the story was a little abstract but there were some great stunts. The highlight of the show were the BMX bike stunts and man, it was exhilarating. There was one where it was a gymnast hung in the air by her hair and that was fantastic as well. It was funny and the music was really good, which usually is the highlight of the show. It was rainy but still very fun.

Birthday Bash (not mine)

My friend and their little one along with Mother’s Day was celebrated all together with a bunch of friends at a great restaurant. Here’s all the food on the menu which I or other people had. It was super delicious and it was very fun. Obviously, to respect their privacy, I’m not sharing any pictures with other people whoever, it was a fun Friday night. I was pretty tired however it was nice to go out and chat with other people.

73% Dark Chocolate by Chocolat Favoris

Chocolat Favoris

I’m not sponsored or anything by Chocolats Favoris (wouldn’t that be the dream, right?). However, we went there with a big family gathering over the weekend for chocolate and I found this 73% Dark Chocolate. Oh my goodness, this is just heavenly. I thought 70% chocolate was pretty delish but 73% apparently is the absolute perfection.

That’s it for this Weekly Adventures!

Game Warp Podcast: Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition Review (Guest: Drew’s Movie Reviews)

The next episode of Game Warp Podcast is here!

April’s featured game is Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition chosen by our special guest reviewer joining us, Drew at Drew’s Movie Reviews. You may know him for his cool features like his trailers on Monday and the Wednesday Quotes challenge segments or maybe you know him because he is my co-host for the Ultimate 80s and 90s Blogathon from this and last year. Whatever it is, believe it or not, Drew may be partially responsible for me actually getting back into the gaming world more. Plus, while he does play very different genres of games than I do, he is quite the avid gamer behind the scenes of his movie reviews blog.

Guacamelee!, developed by DrinkBox Studios, is a Metroidvania-style game set in a Mexican background as a simple man is turned into a luchador to save el Presidente’s daughter (who he likes) from the evil clutches of Calaca, a man who sold his soul to the devil with a vengeance. Listen here as we chat about the story, game mechanics and characters!

Thanks for watching!

Game Warp Podcast: Talks New and Upcoming 2017 Games (with Insomnia Knights)

Welcome to the next episode of Game Warp Podcast!

This episode, we talk about new and upcoming 2017 games with our special guest, Youtube Gamer Slaymate (aka Insomnia Knights). We bring up a lot of AAA titles and equally a lot of independent titles. Nintendo Switch discussion also comes up as we talk about our impression and how we feel about Nintendo’s direction in general. This episode was recording before a few of the games had release dates announced and currently are released. You can look in the description for Slay’s playlist for some of them.

Its been a bit busy so…

Yay..to last minute posts!

I have half of post ready that was supposed to go up today. I’m not too confident I’ll be able to wrap it up. Between now three days behind on NaNoWriMo and the deadline just over a week left, I’ve been powering most of my energy for it. And well, there’s been editing duties to take care of the last few nights, which I totally love doing.

With that said, I feel like I’ve been slacking off a little, even if I really am not. So here’s a few things I watched that have helped me de-stress a little.

Team Edge is so awesome! I usually have a lot of fun watching their challenges.

I’m not quite the fan of VR just yet but Until Dawn: Rush of Blood looks intense and watching people get scared is in general pretty funny. Maybe my humor is a little warped.

And finally..for some shameless self promotion, kinda. When I’m not writing or editing, this is what I’m working on…trying out new recording software for mobile games.

Its short and not super interesting, I guess. But I  needed a pass for today. Hope you enjoyed the vids! 🙂

Normal posts should come back tomorrow! Sorry again.

Music Obsessions [October 2016]

Halloween music? I’m sorry! The Halloween month here starts very soon. Announcement coming up! However, I had to get some music out of my system! This week has gone by just way too slow.

Let’s just jump right in!! 🙂

OKAY – The Piano Guys

Better When I’m Dancin’ – Meghan Trainor

Hamilton – An Acappella Medley – Peter Hollens & co.

She Wants Me Dead – CAZZETTE

AND…because its October…let’s just find the first Halloween song that comes to my mind.

That’s it for this month’s Music Obsessions!
Have an awesome weekend! 🙂
