Hello. I’m alive (just very tired).
Aaaanyway I made a thing.
I know I’m years late to the party, but I finished The End in Minecraft some time ago, and was reduced into a puddle of tears by the End Poem. I liked it so much that I got it into my head that I wanted to narrate it. Eh. xDDD
So I made this thing because who knew this game can be such a source of affirmation? Video editing and narration are amateur af but here you go lol. I’ll try to do better next time (if there’s a next time) =)))
It’s been a week since I first got my hands on The Wolf Among Us (Chapters 1 and 2), and to be honest, I still have it in my system. Chapter 3 can’t seem to get here fast enough, LOL.
So yeah, today, here’s one of my favorite lines from Chapter 1.
Don’t worry, Bigby. I know you’re doing your best. ❤
Sweet dreams. ^_^
I guess I should mention that prior to our recent Minecraft binge, another friend of ours insisted that my fiance and I finally sit down and play The Wolf Among Us, a title from Telltale Games. To be honest, I knew NOTHING of this game other than it features characters from the Vertigo graphic novel series, Fables, of which I am a big fan of. I never read any reports about it, never watched videos, trailers, ZILCH. NADA.
So yeah. We sat down and basically did a three-headed playthrough, with one person at the controls, and two others shouting contradicting responses/instructions (which led to many confused, panic, hilarious moments).
By the time we finished the game… well… I think the mini-comic tells it all. XDDDD
All in all, The Wolf Among Us is a GORGEOUS game. So far, the storytelling is also strong, and I believe that it does a good job of reinforcing the characters from the graphic novels and adding to their flavor, which is tricky and very few other tie-in titles manage to accomplish.
In any case, I’m happy to report that the laptop is safe and unharmed, and ONWARDS TO CHAPTER TWO! 😀
PS: I should clarify that the reaction in the last panel is a POSITIVE thing because I was so, so invested in the story that when THAT happened, it was just such a punch to the gut. Amazing work right there. 😀
As I’ve mentioned a couple of days ago, my fiance and I have been spending our time playing Minecraft, with him at the controls, and me as the backseat driver. I’ve also mentioned previously that I wasn’t really into this game because I like having my games’ visuals gorgeous.
Well… we haven’t stopped playing, LOL.
Block by block, we have continued to make various improvements to our mountain-top fortress, and we even dragged a belligerent horse from 4000 blocks away (large biomes are INSANE). We have coordinates to various landmarks written down on the IRL calendar hanging by our IRL doorway. We obsessively preserve our progress by making spare copies of our save game in case of sudden LAVA. It has been awesome, and we’ve been having a really good time.
I think we’ll be playing this particular game for quite a while.
Today, mountain-top fortresses with lava-powered heating systems. Tomorrow, sky bridges. Yeah.

LOL. Been feeling lazy and potato-ish the entire morning and afternoon, so we kinda just decided to slack off a bit for today. Then after a bit of TV, we decided to play Minecraft where my fiance is on the computer, and I go into backseat driver mode. It was glorious, hahaha. XDDD
I’m not really a bit Minecraft fan because I tend to be spoiled when it comes to visuals, and I like games that are pretty. But after a while, I learned to enjoy it, so MAYBE I’m finally wrapping my head around it a little bit. 😀
Anyway, as a result of our team-up, we ended up with a fortress on top of a high mountain, above the clouds, right next to a towering lava fall. We terraformed an area of the mountain, brought up trees and water from the lowlands, started a field, built pens and filled it with animals. I’m most proud of our indoor wheat field (we were so high up in the mountain, that there was snow, and water froze after a few seconds, so you couldn’t really grow anything outdoors).
So yeah, all that has resulted in today’s doodle. Them chickens are cute. ❤
