Update for January January 22, 2018 by ARBT - Allo and Happy new year, beautiful game related people! Server Mama has had a January.

No one warned me about the adorable dogs! November 21, 2017 by ARBT - So I finally FINALLY had a few minutes of uninterrupted downtime today to play Super Mario Odyssey on the Switch. I hadn’t gotten out of the Sand Kingdom yet and both the Beasts are WAY ahead of me so putting in some catch up time was overdue. So I finished up with the boss (That …
…and of course, kill Dracula. November 20, 2017 by ARBT - So the RCA to USB thingie arrived on Saturday. Installed and test ran it, and pleased to say that while the picture feed isn’t the sharpest, it does work pretty well after you tinker with OBS a bit. So for my Monday night stream, I’m going to be doing a nostalgia run of Super Castlevania …

I could keep mostly streaming Minecraft * but really there are a million MC streamers out there. Really there are about a millionty-one PC …
I should probably announce my Twitch schedules here too, huh November 6, 2017 by ARBT - lol, yet another “lookit me, I’m bad at game blogging” post. Tonight’s Twitch schedule! (all times Eastern US) 7pm: Stardew Valley This one was a request from one of my friend’s kids who just started playing. I think this is a good opportunity to show off the main game and the big farm, which I …

Some news type things October 29, 2017 by ARBT - Open a gaming blog, immediately neglect said blog; that seems to be my general M.O. I’m thinking scheduling content time might be the only way to keep me posting regularly, so I declare Sundays are news post days… starting now! ARBT gets a Switch One of the major reasons I’ve been absent the past week …
WW2 era gun bunker on a hill with "Come see my cat" spray painted on one side Kitty Trap October 17, 2017 by ARBT - So noodling through Tumblr I discovered the above picture. After having a chuckle and mostly agreeing with the notes under it (my favorite being “this would be the horror movie scenario which gets me to leave my car and get murdered” because yep) I looked at it again and went “hey, that might be fun …
Bizzy. Baksun. October 11, 2017 by ARBT - Being eaten by another non-gaming project at the moment. Servers are still up for now, but probably won’t get back to content/streaming until next week. Have fun in the meantime!
Screenshot from the game Rust, depicting the interior of a church. The First Church of Obi-Wan October 9, 2017 by ARBT - Time to give my Rust island a little love! Every wipe cycle I take the time to paste in one or two builds to liven up the landscape a bit. (Considering the island is usually empty, the landscape needs a lot of livening.) The first one is always the First Church of Obi-Wan, named for …
screenshot from Minecraft with overlay at top for twitch streaming Baby’s First Twitch Stream! October 9, 2017 by ARBT - So as a procrastination project from what I’m supposed to be doing until next weekend (I know) I’ve been working on this blog and also slowly setting up my Twitch channel for For Realsies streaming. I finally got all my ducks in a row and went live last night. As a test run, I noodled …
