Games

I don't game often enough to justify owning a console, so these are all on PC (available through itch.io or steam). I tend towards exploration and puzzle games although I'll also play more story-driven games as long as there's enough poking around to do.

I also have a list of my favourite browser games over on the links tab

  • Outer Wilds - Space exploration/adventure
  • Super Auto Pets - Autobattler with cute animals (also, this one's free)
  • Where Cards Fall - Puzzle game with story elements
  • Oneshot - Exploration with meta elements
  • Anodyne - Zelda-like dungeon craw
  • WitchWay - Puzzle game
  • Corinne Cross' Dead and Breakfast - VN with ghosts
  • Night in the Woods - VN with platforming elements, autumn vibes
  • A Short Hike - Short exploration game

Blaseball

Former Jazz Hand (seasons 7 - 24), current Flower (short circuit 1 - present). Come yell at me about:

  • Jazz Hands: Campos Arias, Kathy Mathews, Lowe Forbes, August Sky, Wyatt Pothos, Walton Sports, Lancelot Kane, Mikan Hammer, Elijah Valenzuela, Steph Weeks, Baby Doyle, Collins Melon, Agan Harrison, Holden Stanton, Bauer Zimmerman, Howell Rocha, Tamara Crankit, Combs Estes
  • Flowers: Inez Owens, SCORES BASERUNNER, Gloria Bugsnax, Cory Twelve, Zeboriah Wilson, Margarito Nava, Wyatt Mason VI, Lyra Vitamin, Chester Grey, Jose Gravy, Lila Icicle, Gwen Minami, Squid Broom
  • Sunbeams: Sutton Bishop, Kaj Statter Jr.

(Yeah, I know it could go under games but consider: I talk about blaseball enough that it deserves its own subsection)

TV

I am awful at watching TV series because I keep starting series with multiple seasons, burning out then restarting them months later. The most reliable way for me to finish a series is to watch with someone else, which is why this list is half live action sci-fi/action (my dad) and half anime (my friends)

  • Over the Garden Wall
  • A League of their Own (2022)
  • Star Trek (TOS and TNG, so far)
  • My Hero Academia
  • Revolutionary Girl Utena
  • Mo Dao Zu Shi
  • Dennou Coil
  • The X Files
  • Leverage & Leverage : Redemption
  • Firefly

  • The Silence of the Girls & The Women of Troy - Pat Barker
  • Middlegame & Wayward Children - Seanan Mcguire
  • Dalemark Quartet - Diana Wynne Jones
  • The Left Hand of Darkness - Ursula K. Le Guin
