Claire and I kick back and discuss some of the weirdest, craziest, and most WTF games we've ever played. I hope you enjoy.
Hey everyone, Mazer here and I am a reviewer, livestreamer, and above all else - a gamer. I enjoy the weird and unusual as well as the unique and creative. I was formally on Gametrailers before moving my reviews and streams over to Youtube and Twitch.
I hope you enjoy my content and always feel free to say hello! I always enjoy a good chat :D

Vlog: Talky Tuesdays with Claire: Weirdest Games We've Played
Would you prefer a true sequel to the Blood Omen/Soul Reaver series, or would you prefer a reboot?
Both games make up one of my favorite franchises of all time. Their narrative is deep, complex, with a lot of lore, backstories, and fascinating characters. I have loved the fact that this franchise lets you play as opposite characters - sometimes as Kain, sometimes as Raziel - and neither one is the true villain. To me, it has always been a shame that we've never reached a conclusion to the franchise.
With that said, would any fans of the franchise prefer the series to be rebooted? To have the storyline tightened and expanded upon (and hopefully conclude), would you prefer an actual sequel that wraps the story up once and for all, or would you like it better if the franchise remains at rest?
RE: [Official] What are you playing?
Currently playing three horror games at once XD
The first is The Forest with some other live streamers. We're trying to make our own sacrificial tower complete with skull church. It's been insanely intense. We're on day 41 currently.
The second is Resident Evil 2. It's going slower than usual because I want to stream the entire experience with my wife so we can only play on Saturday evenings. Almost done with the game though! Just leaving the sewers and I am super excited.
Finally I am playing Subnautica and I DARE you to argue that this is not a horror game. I have never felt such anxiety in a game in all my life. Normally these survival games allow you to build bases, armor, and weapons to the point where survival becomes a breeze but in Subnautica, you are ALWAYS at the bottom of the food chain. Upgrade your PRAWN, MOTH, or Cyclops all you want; it does not matter. All you need to do is attract the attention of the wrong fishie fishie and you will watch all your hard work explode around you leaving your defenseless body swimming as fast as possible from an ocean of meat eats.
Where would be the appropriate forum for posting reviews/livestream footage?
Because I do not wish to bother the wrong forum group with any links I wish to share.
RE: Last movie you watched
Reign of Superman. I really enjoyed it to be honest and I am not the biggest S-man fan. I liked how he was more humanized and I really enjoyed seeing the other Supermen handle the situations of the world. Yeah, there were some minor issue like watching the JL just stand there staring at a collapsing portal and the lack of the Titans but other than that it was a fun run. Loved watching the multiple Supes beat the ever living hell out of one another XD
The Great Bowser Debate: Is he a dragon or a turtle?
Bowser is known as the King of the Koopas, koopas being the turtle-like species of the Mushroom kingdom. However, it is clear that despite having a shell that Bowser can pull his head and arms into, he is not that of a turtle. He has hair, a muzzle instead of a beak, and can breathe fire. On top of this, he is also a lot bigger than any other creature in the Mushroom kingdom which suggests that he is leaning towards that of a Dragon species. His title "King of the Koopas" can simply be that of a title and not a moniker towards his race. He is the ruler, the usurper, the alpha male of the Koopa species thus the title was given onto him
However, as mentioned, he does have a lot of turtle characteristics. He's a reptile, has a shelled body, and can retract himself into his shell whenever he so desires. Returning to the previous argument of being the "King of Koopas"; Bowser could, in fact, be an Alpha Male Koopa, a species of Koopa that has evolved past the usual turtle look. Being the fact that Bowser prefers living in a hot environment over a water environment, it only makes sense that he is a different breed of Koopa. Like you have Sea Turtles and you have Box Turtles. They are both turtles and yet have very different characteristics that set them apart from one another.
We know other Koopas exist. The Fire Brothers and Boomerang Brothers seem to be Koopas that have evolved to stand upright and wear armor. This means that a "Dragon Koopa" like Bowser could possibly exist in that hellish World 8. Thus the King of Koopas can actually be geared towards Bowser's actual species. The Alpha Koopas which involve him, the Koopalings, and Bowser Jr, are a rarer but more powerful and a lot more intelligent breed which allows them to easily rise to power and control all the others.
So let me ask everyone here; what do you think makes more sense? Bowser being descended of Dragons, or Bowser being an Evolved Turtle-Koopa?
