Suffice to say that I enjoyed it- this is a game for my hall of fame. It isn’t the best of the series- objectively I’d say it’s second best, with DS2 taking third place, but subjectively I have a soft spot for DS2. That aside, this installment captures a lot of what made DS1 great and makes it way prettier.

It also captures much of the frustration- the NPC plotlines really bug me, because to me they don’t represent challenge or the way that Souls encourages you to find out things yourself. They feel more like random events that you have no control over. I mean, who first went back to the well and found this git inside? After already doing most of the Cathedral? Then found Patches, at the right time and place? Good Lord. And yeah, I drove my miracle vendor insane. Oops.

Strange Matters story 'The Birthday Cake' becomes a short film!
During the past year, a local filmmaker called David Martin approached me, seeking a short story that could be turned into a short film script. While many of my stories were a bit too fantastic for an independent filmmaker (without a huge budget), I did have one story which was small, self-contained and simple- The Birthday Cake.

A quick musing today, on a matter which is currently foremost in my cerebellum: Choose Your Own Adventure games.


You know the ones, right? From the early days of Fighting Fantasy and all things Steve Jackson to the modern phone games and visual novels, these are games wherein you read text and make choices to decide what happens next. You know it...

LISTEN ALL ABOUT IT?! Series 2 of Don't Lose Your Headline begins here,  featuring a guest appearance from Chris Evans (nope, not that one. Or that one).

New to the show? Comedy + podcast + bizarre news stories + shameless lying + swear words = DLYHL.

Listen as we try to fake each other out with made up news, while discovering, as ever, that the truth is always stranger than fiction.
