Hello sweeties!

Hope you all had a wonderful week. Mine was chill, but good. I’d been in a pretty bad funk since my plans to attend PAX East this year fell through, but this week I managed to turn my mindset around and get started on some other projects that I’m pretty excited about.

This weekend will likely include a trip to the Stay Home Club Sample Sale, lots of homemade kettle corn (the secret is coconut oil), and finally buckling down to get started on my game. No. Really.


Link Time!

This woman is a hero. Her dad is a jerk.

Life goals.

Interesting look at different paths to redemption for two very similar Bioware characters.

Yet another mug I need desperately.

Interesting look at sex and consent in the role playing subculture.

New game from Super Giant lets you choose your pronouns!

This necklace would be perfect for a Daenarys everyday cosplay.

Neko Atsume as the anti-Tamagatchi (did I just age myself?)

Man do I want to play this. Future HK, cats, love.

And finally, 7 violent games you can play without killing anyone.

Monthly Favourites April 2016

Monthly Favorites April 2016 | Gamerwife.com Another month, another big long list of stuff that I was really into. While things are still taking a while to warm up here in Montreal, I have been able to retire my winter coat and I’m trying to make walking a part of my daily routine. Seriously, I cannot wait for summer to get here. But, until then, here’s what I’ve been loving this month.

Stuff I talk about in this video:

Bite Beauty Lipstick in Dragonfruit

Described as a ‘magenta violet’ this lipstick is bright and sunny and perfect for spring/summer. Stays suprisingly well and will stain your lips if you reapply often.

Matt The Radar Technician tank from Jordandene

I love the SNL sketch that inspired this shirt and I love this shirt. Destined to get lots of wear this spring/summer.

Halt & Catch Fire (Season 2)

Apparently the raiting stink, but I don’t care, I love it and I have a huge crush on Scoot McNairy because of it.

Papergirls

Late 80’s nostalgia, Sci-Fi, and kickass girls. What more could you want?

In Real Life

I love that someone is out there making comics about global issues like this. Smart, touching and super relatable.

Stuff to Blow Your Mind

Another great podcast from the How Stuff Works network. Covers crazy science stuff and lots of monster stuff.

Daiya Cheezy Mac

Vegan, gluten free, super yummy and ready in less than 8 mins!

What were you loving this month?

For those of you not familiar, Teeblox is a subscription t-shirt service where for the low price of just $9.99 a month (or even less if you get a multi-month subscription), then send you an awesome, licensed t-shirt from your favourite pop culture franchises. They have a wide variety of themes to choose from, including Disney, Marvel, DC Comics and Games. Or, if you can’t decide just get the Hot Meex for added surprise!

And as promised, here’s how I styled this month’s t-shirt:

Since spring is finally springing in Montreal I decided to play on the edge with this look and pair my t-shirt with denim shorts over purple tights. I also matched my lipstick to my tights. Boo-ya.

What do you think of my Halo inspired look?

Indie Game Date: Moon Hunters

Indie Game Date Moon Hunters | Gamerwife.com Rick’s been playing games since before he could walk. I went from an NES to a PS3 with nothing in between. We love to game together, but finding games we can both enjoy can be tough. Indie Game Date is our quest to find great indie games that both of us will love. This month Rick and I decided to sit down with Moon Hunters, the newest game from Montreal’s own Kitfox games. It’s a beautiful pixel style co-op RPG style myth building game with heavy roguelike elements that supports up to 4 players for online or couch co-op. Since co-op is kind of our thing, we’ve been itching to play Moon Hunters since it was announced nearly two years ago.

It took us around an hour to complete our first playthough, but I’m eager to get back to it to unlock more content and environments. It’s so beautiful and the soundtrack really is perfect. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

It’s available now on Steam, but will be released on PS4 and PS Vita later this year.
