Deadlyslob, a stand-up dude from some godforsaken place somewhere in Canada, is one of my favourite streamers. I’ve been watching him a lot, originally for his Escape from Tarkov content. In the last few weeks, he’s played an amazing Bannerlord campaign with a character called Wyseal. He’s now bringing the story to YouTube. Do yourself a favour and watch this series! It’s amazing. Better storytelling than House of the Dragon. I’m serious.
It’s true. Hell hath frozen over. I’m now on TikTok.

My friend Jonathan and I have started a new video series where we play the Russian hardcore shooter Escape from Tarkov and talk about life’s simple pleasures and major disappointments. We used to do this on a podcast, but have decided that a YouTube series was better suited for this kind of thing as people wanted to see the gameplay as well.
The first episode is up now and it features us totally dominating Woods. Well, kinda. Mostly Jonathan. I do manage to kill one scav by magdumping my AK in his general direction, though. Have a look. It was a lot of fun to record:
New episodes every Monday.
For the longest time, I’ve meant to create a show where I look very in-depth at individual Star Trek episodes. I’ve tried several different approaches in the past that didn’t work or didn’t make it out of the planning stage and I’ve now decided on a dedicated YouTube show. For this, I have created a new YouTube channel called Star Dregs, which can be reached via stardregs.com.
The plan for this show is that I will look at all Star Trek episodes in series order (TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY and ENT, for starters). Well, or as far as I get before I die of old age. In the first episode, I look at the originally unaired pilot for Star Trek – The Original Series called “The Cage”:
I took part in the beta weekend for Icarus and streamed my gameplay of it yesterday and today. I’m planning to do the same for the next two of those beta weekends, as I’m currently writing a review of the game and might as well. If you’ve missed the streams and want to watch the first ten hours of me figuring out its mechanics, check out these three recordings on YouTube:
This week, I finally picked up streaming games again. I started by getting back to The Witcher 2, which was actually a lot of fun, especially considering how long I hadn’t played the game and that I stopped right after starting it. Despite not knowing any of the combat controls anymore, the story hooked me and pulled me right back in. And the graphics are just such an unbelievable improvement on the first game!
I also picked up Snowrunner again on Saturday after a similarly long hiatus. I fell right back into loving that game, though, and it ended up being a very chill weekend stream with some nice discussions about weddings and such with chat. I’m looking forward to doing more game streams soon!
