Indigo Prophecy - Now Bloody Playing Pt. 3

On today's thrilling adventure into David Cage's mental brainspace, we kick the crap out good friends, we get claustrophobic while trying to do our job, and we get very quiet and guilty when lots and lots of racism happens.  Also, cra...

Indigo Prophecy - Now Bloody Playing Pt. 2

In this thrilling installment of Indigo Prophecy, we drink water, play the guitar, punch a bag, play the guitar, and listen to more Theory of a Deadman. The fun literally never ends. It will never end. The fun is literally going on forever...

Indigo Prophecy - Now Bloody Playing

Legends of Aethereus - Now Bloody Playing

There probably won't be any more Legends of Dawn, because the game crashed while I was recording and took all the video with it. Buggy game, that is! Fortunately, we have a different legend for you, with Legends of Aethereus!  Enjoy t...

Legends of Dawn - Now Bloody Playing

In what is easily my favorite Now Bloody Playing to date, I battle Skittlers and meet the best voice actors in the world, all with Legends of Dawn! I had a blast with this one, and you can expect to see much more of it in future. Way too m...

Cookie Clicker - Now Bloody Playing

Neverending Nightmares - Now Bloody Playing

Oh look, it's Neverending Nightmares, that creepy looking adventure game Jonathan talked about the other day. It's only got a few hours left on its Kickstarter, and this video probably won't help it. We can only cross our fingers! Anyway, ...

Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death

Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is funny, gloriously shameless, and solid in the action department. It is also, unfortunately, kind of broken in unforgivable ways, and if you get caught in its terrible traps, you could ruin your entire...

Alien Rage - Now Bloody Playing

In today's little carnival of misery, I try to contain my internal juices as I play Motion Sickness: The Game and fire my squirty gun at the Genericons. Yeah, Alien Rage isn't very good.  A full review is coming later today, where I f...

Doorways - Now Bloody Playing

Discovered a new horror game on Steam last night, so I decided to record myself playing it for your ridiculous entertainment. It's called Doorways, it bills itself as a survival horror game, but it kind of isn't. It's interesting, though! ...

Shelter - Now Bloody Playing

Time for some more stupid gameplay video stupidity for you to swallow into your gawking eyes. Why not watch me play Shelter for a minute? I'm going to wander around and drop onion things in front of little baby badgers.  Well then, th...

Delver - Now Bloody Playing

Today I am playing Delver, a roguelike-esque first-person adventure recommended to me after I played Paranautical Activity. For those of you who weren't so hot on that latter game, methinks this one is far more your speed.  We will ha...

Outlast - Now Bloody Playing Pt. 4

It's time for the fourth installment of Outlast. On today's spooky chapter, I run around in circles from a doctor as murderous as he is naked, get smashed by a big 'un, and turn some valves in the name of progress. It's all scary stuff! We...

Outlast - Now Bloody Playing Pt. 3

It's time for the third part of my Outlast gameplay extravaganza! This time, I get caught down in the sewers with Smashy Smashy Egg Man, I get chased through corridors by maniacs, and I enjoy a session with a naked butt doctor.  How c...

Outlast - Now Bloody Playing Pt. 2

A more sober version of me returns to the nuthouse for part two of Outlast. This time around, I come face to face with murderous naked men, catch a necrophiliac in the act, and pick up some batteries.  Hopefully you continue to enjoy ...

Outlast - Now Bloody Playing

Last night, I got myself a little more drunk than I'd planned to and, in my feverish state of mind, decided it was a perfect time to fire up Outlast and record myself playing it. Going in blind, this is my first time reaction to what's alr...

Paranautical Activity - Now Bloody Playing

I've been wanting to play Paranautical Activity -- the groovy looking roguelike FPS -- for quite some time, but I've been so busy I didn't even see it hit Steam! I promptly downloaded it this morning and decided to record my very first tim...

Gone Home - Now Bloody Playing Pt. 2

People insisted I upload the next part of my Gone Home playthrough, even though I did a stupid and it got really boring. So yeah, have fun watching half an hour of utter drivel! Or not, if you don't want it.  Either way HIT LIKE N' SU...
