A section of the splash screen from Tetris (Original game boy edition) Some thoughts on retro gaming, nostalgia and childhood stories November 18, 2017 by ARBT - I was having a think about what I want to do with my Twitch channel, which somehow turned into this long rumination about retro-gaming and why I still pick up my old controllers from time to time. (It's not just because I'm an Old, I promise. Or maybe it somehow is.)
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 …
Two characters, Pearl and Marina, from the game Splatoon 2. Pearl is glaring at the camera, Marina looks excited. 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 …

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 …
Screenshot from minecraft, depicting a pixel art rendition of the Cromulon from the TV show Rick and Morty I like what you got October 6, 2017 by ARBT - Well considering I found this on the Minecraft server right when I was wondering how I was going to kick off Blog 2.0, it seemed like a sign. (also thanks for the laugh, EvilPenguin!) But yeah, this is the second incarnation of my gaming blog. It will mostly still be minecraft based, but I’m hoping …
