    Feel free to have fun with this however you please. Oh…and I will be more than happy to make a Galarian Rapidash Sorceress based on Aramau if she would like. Please feel free to ask any questions if you are curious.

    Yes…I AM that much of a nerd to make something like this, and fiercely proud of it, I may add!

  2. Dear God fix your volume man. When you talk your too damn quite then when that song plays it's ear blasting loud. Make up your damn mind.

  3. It’s a shame that the Neverwinter that you talked about is nothing more but a hollow shell of what it once was, tainted by predatory pay-to-win micro transactions and lazy game design. Watch John Strife Hayes’ video for more information.

  4. Did you use Northernlion coverage without citing for the Grimrock coverage, or did you happen to just name the character Northernlion.

  5. I love the fact that Champions of Norrath was brought in the beginning of this list. I played that game in my childhood for the longest while, but never made it far and kept starting the story over. I will forever remember the voice in the barbarian as he says "They'll pay for this."

  6. I havent played any D&D actually. I heard about it from media like SMG4 and Teen Titans GO (yes i liked that show, fight me) but i might give it a shot.

  7. noice,finally neverwinter 2 gets some love i always hated the fact that neverwinter 1 doenst let you have a party unless playing online
