11/17/2019 Overwatch Highlights

Had a fun stream of Overwatch, with the amazing Pandasweet tagging in for some team-up goodness, the goal to get the new Mercy skin was accomplished but after getting a good look at it, it's a little meh all because of the wings. Maybe if Mercy was wearing a hardness and didn't look like the wings were protruding from her back it would look better. Anyway tomorrow we're back to Grandia at 7PM EST over at twitch.tv/fredcasden 



Saturday, November 16, 2019

11/15/2019 Realm Royale

For the first time in over six months I did a stream of Realm Royale and with did a lot of duos, teaming with the awesome PandaSweet.

Anyway see everyone on Saturday at 7 PM EST for Twitch Sings at twitch.tv/fredcasden

11/11/2019 Grandia

When it was announced that Steam will be get the HD Remaster of Grandia I was excited since it's been a long time since I first played it... and needless to say I did remember a good portion of the game... and the issue involving Sue that she doesn't quite keep up no matter how many battles you do with her. Anyway we'll be back at it tomorrow at 7 PM EST at twitch.tv/fredcasden




Sunday, November 10, 2019

11/10/2019 Overwatch

A rather dry Sunday night as I focused on placement matches for Season 19 of Overwatch, getting 13 done, still need to do 2 more placements for Damage which I'll probably do off stream. Monday the real fun begins with Grandia! See ya at 7 PM EST at twitch.tv/fredcasden


Saturday, November 9, 2019

11/8/2019 Sam & Max Hit The Road

Well after realizing that I did not do a 2019 stream of Sam & Max Hit The Road, we made sure to do it tonight, but with it being a Friday it meant I kind of had to take my time to stretch it out to fill as much time as possible. Still always great to play through it. Saturday will of course be Twitch Sings! See ya 7pm at twitch.tv/fredcasden



Friday, November 8, 2019

11/7/2019 Star Trek Online

Another Thursday night stream as we spent the night doing all of the New Romulus missions as well as the epic mission Sphere of Influence.

See ya at 7 PM EST at twitch.tv/fredcasden




Thursday, November 7, 2019

11/6/2019 RWBY Grimm Eclipse

Tonight it was a return to RWBY Grimm Eclipse, streaming it for the first time since March, it was a fun, easy laid back stream as I feel I'm nearly done with this damn cold. Anyway, Thursday of course will be Star Trek Online, with adventures on New Romulus! See ya tomorrow at 7 PM EST at twitch.tv/fredcasden




Wednesday, November 6, 2019

11/5/2019 Dead By Daylight

What a great night of Dead By Daylight, even if Discord wouldn't work right until I turned on a second microphone for it. Thank you to fellow streamers Foxy_Melly and LadyOcean32 for the team-up fun! We'll see everyone Wednesday at 7 PM EST for more fun and games at twitch.tv/fredcasden 


Tuesday, November 5, 2019

11/4/2019 Star Trek Starfleet Academy

Tonight we went back to Starfleet Academy, and we finished it, even if I didn't get the 'best ending' that would've given me one more mission... but that means I'll just have to play it again sometime in 2020! We'll see everyone tomorrow at 7 PM at twitch.tv/fredcasden for some fun and nonsense!



Sunday, November 3, 2019

11/3/2019 Overwatch

A new week begins as I battle a cold, but did push through for Sunday Night Overwatch, a lot of mystery heroes tonight, with wins and losses... and a few plays of the game. Here are some of my favorite moments. Monday night it's back to Star Trek Starfleet Academy, see ya at 7 PM EST over at twitch.tv/fredcasden



Saturday, November 2, 2019

11/1/2019 Dead By Daylight

Tonight was all about Dead By Daylight, as I played every match as Nea after prestiging her up, because I wanted to get the Adept Nea achievement (surviving with just using her three unique perks). What was troubling was that Discord was not working with DBD, with a strong audio delay and virtually no communication. But that didn't stop the awesome Foxy_Melly and PandaSweet from joining the fun for several matches. Anyway Saturday's stream will of course be Twitch Sings at 7 PM EST over at twitch.tv/fredcasden



Thursday, October 31, 2019

10/31/2019 Star Trek Online

October 31, 2019, Halloween Night and with it being a Thursday meant of course I was doing Star Trek Online, as my Ferengi Captain, Trax, hit the rank of Rear Admiral, which meant it was time to swap out from the USS Eisenberg to a new ship, the USS Nordic that has a bit more punch and versatility. Story wise, we wen through the Borg Advance and started up the New Romulus story arc, which is where we will start things next Thursday. Friday night I'll be streaming Dead By Daylight, see ya at 7 PM EST at twitch.tv/fredcasden



Wednesday, October 30, 2019

10/30/2019 Star Trek Starfleet Academy

Well for the first time flat out since the late 90s I was playing Star Trek Starfleet Academy tonight, the plan was to play Friday the 13th, but that fell through because of the damn crash and summercamp execution file deleting itself that happens every time I launch the game... anyway I knocked out the first 8 mission fo ST:SA tonight and we'll bring it back on Monday. For Halloween tomorrow, it'll be Star Trek Online starting at 7 PM EST


Tuesday, October 29, 2019

10/29/2019 Power Rangers Battle For The Grid

With the night open, I loaded up Power Rangers Battle For The Grid, and put in some serious play time with The Quantum Ranger from the Time Force season, and he has some of the worse basic combos in the game, and his pistol spam is incredibly cheap which needs to be nerfed with a longer cool down (saying that as someone who did abuse the spamming nature of the move). Anyway we'll see everyone tomorrow at 7 PM over at twitch.tv/fredcasden



10/28/2019 Alice Madness Returns

Well this is funny, the plan was to finish Alice Madness Returns on Tuesday Night, but I tore through Chapter 4 in only 2 hours, so I figure why not just finish it tonight, with Chapter 5 taking me 5 hours, and 1/2 an hour to figure out the one true boss battle of the game. We did have a big raid, new subs and lots of bits so this was an awesome stream, thank you for everyone who came by to make this stream epic. Tomorrow night, Power Rangers Battle For The Grid returns, stream will start at 7 PM EST and of course it's at twitch.tv/fredcasden


Sunday, October 27, 2019

10/27/2019 Overwatch

Sunday Night Overwatch was awesome, as I was joined by PandaSweet and Kalenal for several matches, plenty of wins a few loses.Did get the 3 V 3 Comp stuff done and did a pair of ranked matches that were  less than stellar. Anyway Monday Night will be Alice Madness Returns! See ya at 7 PM EST at twitch.tv/fredcasden


Saturday, October 26, 2019

10/25/2019 Stranger Things By Daylight

On tonight's stream it was back to Dead By Daylight as I focused on playing as Nancy and Steve (both from Stranger Things) for the majority of the stream, even getting joined by a few friends for several matches. I did actually take a turn of playing the role of the Killer, choosing to play as the Plague because out of all the Killers in the game, she was the only one I haven't seen in a match when I was playing Survivor. Saturday's stream will be Twitch Sings, see ya 7 PM EST at twitch.tv/fredcasden


Friday, October 25, 2019

10/24/2019 Star Trek Online

Tonight we had a great stream of Star Trek Online, knocking out the Cardassian Struggle section with my Ferengi Captain. I do miss how long that story arc was originally with a lot of missions and places to visit. Anyway Friday Night is Dead By Daylight, see ya 7 PM EST at twitch.tv/fredcasden 



Wednesday, October 23, 2019

10/23/2019 Alice Madness Returns

Tonight we took care of Chapter 3 of Alice Madness Returns, which saw of all things Samurai Wasps?! And if I never see another Colossal I'd be happy, but I got three chapters left and I know I'll probably run into it a few times. Anyway tomorrow is Thursday which means Star Trek Online! See ya at 7 PM EST at twitch.tv/fredcasden



Tuesday, October 22, 2019

10/22/2019 Alice Madness Returns

Chapter 2 took about 3 hours and 40 minutes, a little shorter than Chapter 1, I am disappointed that I couldn't figured out how to get the fourth 'paint the roses' segment towards the end of the chapter, but it's all good. Tomorrow night the plan is to knock out Chapter 3, and since I already seen the Mad Hatter, March Hare, The Doormouse, The Carpenter and the Walrus I wonder what Wonderland characters I'll see next? See ya at 7 PM EST at twitch.tv/fredcasden



Monday, October 21, 2019

10/21/19 Alice: Madness Returns

First night of playing Alice: Madness Returns is in the books as it took me the entire four hour stream to get through Chapter 1... and I remember what is one of my biggest failings as a gamer is that I'm terrible at platform jumping. Anyway, we'll be back at it tomorrow night at 7 PM EST at twitch.tv/fredcasden, see ya then!


10/20/2019 Overwatch: Delayed Because Of Rain

Well this was an odd-ball night with being unable to stream during the 8 PM hour due to circumstances beyond my control called Mother Nature, but when things got back rolling two friends joined in to make the stream awesome. Monday Night I'll be playing Alice: Madness Returns, see yat 7 PM EST at twitch.tv/fredcasden



Saturday, October 19, 2019

10/18/2019 Friday the 13th

For Friday Night Frights it was the return of Friday the 13th, as I only got to play one match as Jason, and the rest as the survivors / campers... also realized there is some non-online game modes, so I might have dedicate a stream to that at some point. Anyway Saturday night, I'll be doing twitch sings, see ya at 7 PM EST over at twitch.tv/fredcasden


Thursday, October 17, 2019

10/17/2019 Star Trek Online

Wednesday, October 16, 2019

Tuesday, October 15, 2019

10/15/2019 Phantasmagoria Night 2

Night 2 of Phantasmagoria  went pretty well finishing the game at about 9:30 PM, it wasn't totally smooth as I did suffer two deaths but in the end the demon was booked in a... well... book. Anyway tomorrow night, Power Rangers Battle For The Grid Ranked Matches, see ya 7PM EST over at twitch.tv/fredcasden 



10/14/2019 Phantasmagoria Night 1

25 years ago Phantasmagoria hit shelves and was considered very controversial for its time and outside of one scene nothing was pushed too far. Anyway we made it through Chapter 4, so I should be able to finish the game tomorrow night at 7 PM EST over at twitch.tv/fredcasden


Monday, October 14, 2019

10/13/2019 Overwatch

Tuesday, October 8, 2019

10/8/2019 Power Rangers Battle For The Grid Clips

Tonight I stream the recently released Power Rangers Battle For The Grid (Steam Version) going through the story mode as well as getting in a few online matches. The story mode has me curious on if other match variations will be added to the game over time, as it would be great with 1 v 1, 2 v 2, 1 v 2, 1 v 3, 2 v 3 match variations. We'll be doing more Power Ranger things tomorrow at 7 PM EST over at twitch.tv/fredcasden



10/7/2019 Friday The 13th Moments

It's been a few weeks but we've brought back Friday The 13th for another go round, and of course we had our ups and downs. Did pick up two achievements during the stream one for finding a Teddy Bear and the other for nabbing Jason's mask. See ya tomorrow at 7 PM EST over at twitch.tv/fredcasden



Monday, October 7, 2019

10/6/2019 Overwatch Moments

Kind of a different Overwatch stream this week, with more of a focus on the Workshop mode. Tomorrow night we'll be doing a stream of Friday The 13th.




Saturday, October 5, 2019

10/4/2019 Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 Moments

Tonight, I decided to go back to Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 instead of doing Friday the 13th because I had a feeling I could blitz the rest of the second campaign (Pro-Reg) in a few hours, which I did. I am amazed at how short this game was. But I did get The Hulk unlocked and there was a lot of Smashing happening. Overall, 35 of the 58 game achievements were unlocked, so not bad.


Friday, October 4, 2019

10/3/2019 Star Trek Online moments

Tonight's stream ran long thanks to having the day off on Friday, and during this week Star Trek Online run, I ended up seeing a lot of the new remastered cut scenes that was added, as well as seeing that some missions have been shorten and new voices overs have been put in. Did notice a bug that resulted in the Specters 5-part mission not being accessible for whatever reason, hopefully they get that fixed.Anyway we'll be back to things tomorrow 7 PM at twitch.tv/fredcasden and I think we'll be just going all in on the Pro-Reg run of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2



Wednesday, October 2, 2019

10/2/2019 Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 Moments

Tonight's stream saw the finishing of the Anti-Reg campaign of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2... and then I started up the pro-reg variant, which will continue on Monday. I actually did had to look how how to deal with Nick Fury the games final boss, but I am pleased to see how over-powered the characters are in the 'new game'. Still wondering where the hell some collectables are as I was being pretty damn thorough looking around. Ah we. Tomorrow night Star Trek Online over at twitch.tv/fredcasden


10/1/2019 Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 Moments

We open October with night 2 of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, knocking all of Chapter 2 and opening up things into Chapter 3 by saving Wakanda. It really blows my mind at how short this game is, but I did die twice and had to reload checkpoints due to glitches. So tomorrow should be interesting. Of course the stream starts at 7PM EST over at twitch.tv/fredcasden


Monday, September 30, 2019

9/30/2019 Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 Moments

First night of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 is in the books, and was playing at a pretty brisk place as the game indicates I'm about 43% through the story. I went anti-reg with it this playthrough, which means a second playthrough would be pro-reg. Anyway we'll be back at it tomorrow at 7 PM over at twitch.tv/fredcasden


9/29/2019 Overwatch Moments

Another Sunday Night of Overwatch with some Ranked and Quick Play matches throughout the night, did lose some SR on Support and Tank, and once again I couldn't get quied up as a damage type. Ah well. Tomorrow night I'll begin Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, see ya then over at twitch.tv/fredcasden at 7 PM EST



Saturday, September 28, 2019

9/27/2019 Jurassic Park: The Game Failure Moments :D

Since I had no real plans for Friday's stream I ended up doing a 2019 run of Jurassic Park: The Game from TellTale Games, and this vid has some of my favorite failures that happened during the stream.



Thursday, September 26, 2019

9/26/2019 Star Trek Online

With the passing of Aron Eisenberg (who played Nog on Deep Space Nine), I created a Ferengi character for this week Star Trek Online run, and we'll continue to use him in the coming weeks and months, primarily for my own curiosity regarding differences in dialog depending on what species a Captain is.



9/25/2019 - Death Road To Canada

This game is very similar in concept to another game I've played called Organ Trail, zombie apocalypse and needing to get from one place to another, Death Road to Canada is really charming, with 'cameos' / 'parodies' of characters from other franchises such as Elvis (called Alvis), Link and Octodad. Did nearly make it to Canada, only to die right on the border. Overall it's a fun game to fill the back end of a stream, but does not have the legs for a four hour stream.




Tuesday, September 24, 2019

9/24/2019 Star Trek Clips

Well, I can see why people gave this game mixed reviews as I finished Star Trek tonight, roughly took me 8 hours between yesterday and today. That said I enjoyed it, although the Spock AI left a lot to be desired. Did have my fair share of deaths, but it was fairly obvious on what I was doing wrong. Not sure what the next major game will be, but of course I'll be streaming tomorrow at 7 PM EST over at http://twitch.tv/fredcasden


9/23/2019 Star Trek Clips

Tonight I finally got around to playing Star Trek, released in 2013 from Bandai Namco as a tie-in to the 2009 JJ-Trek films and timeline. Right off the bat it's clear this game is obviously more fun with two-players. Too bad, no one I know has the game on Steam and you can't buy the game anymore either. Still, it's very straight forward with various puzzles. The voice acting is really top notch, and actually getting to control the Enterprise and a photo torpedo was quite fun. Voice acting was top notch as it uses all of the 2009 Star Trek Film main cast. Looking forward to resuming tommorow night at 7 PM over at twitch.tv/fredcasden 



Saturday, September 21, 2019

9/20/2019 A Night Of Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3

This was an interesting stream as I streamed Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3, and we had issues with a troll in the later stages of it. Now lets be clear there's a special place north of Ann Arbor for Trolls, but thankfully my mods were on point. Tomorrow night I'll be streaming Twitch Sings over at twitch.tv/fredcasden


Thursday, September 19, 2019

9/19/2019 Star Trek Online Clips

Tonight's stream ran longer than usual for a Thursday, but the action was all about Star Trek Online, as I loaded up my first Discovery toon to do some 'patrol' story missions to get those out of the way... and then switched over to my main for some Task Force Ops.

The Real Highlight was getting into Gravity Kills, and realizing... my main toon has Repulsor Beams... there's a black hole... why not try pushing the Dreadnought into the Black Hole... that moment is in the video below.

Tomorrow night: Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 at 7 PM EST over a twitch.tv/fredcasden

The Passing of Larry DiTillo (co-creator of She-Ra) and DreamWorks Disrespect Of It

Sunday Night Chill Zone 3/17/2019 Highlights

Smite, Paladins and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed made up the randomness of Sunday night this week.

Friday night it was back to Mass Effect, bouncing around gradually doing side quests before finally making way to Illium!
