My first thoughts | Until Dawn


We all love a free game don't we? Especially when they are free on PlayStation plus, this month Until Dawn was free to download, I've wanted to play it for a while but never got around to downloading it. Luckily it was free and I could spend my pennies elsewhere, I knew this was a horror and was prepared to let myself be frightened, as I've got older horrors have started to scare me no matter if it's a movie or a game but I still power through it! Until Dawn started off as a PS3 game for the move, I actually really like the PS move a lot of people hate it but I find it a very underrated accessory for the PlayStation. Until Dawn was then eventually released for PS4 in 2014, it now gave you the option of using a normal PS4 controller or the PS move, I like that it has two different options, If I had the PS move for the PS4 I would more than likely use it for Until Dawn

MY TOP 3 GAMES FOR 2017: PART 3

How fast has July come around? I can't believe we are half way through 2017 and that people are already talking about Christmas! Last month was a great month for game announcements, as you know from my E3 post I have a few games which I'm looking forward to this coming year and next year so they won't be mentioned in this post. It's not long now until Destiny 2 Beta will be available for us to all play and I'm sure September will come around pretty fast for us to play the proper release of Destiny 2 so I'm eagerly awaiting the release, along with being able to download the new Life is strange 2 game which I should pre-order soon! I hope everyone is having a lovely summer, soon the kids will be breaking up for the summer holidays and I'm kind of dreading it, I know I sound like an awful person but my issue doesn't lie with the kids it's with how busy Cornwall get's in the summer, I know it relies a lot on tourists and holiday makers but it can make it very hard to get to places and most of the time it's packed (I know I sound like an old lady). But enough of that and onto the games I have picked.


Twitch | It's just cleavage, get over it!


There's a topic I've wanted to address for a while now, it's something that is getting ridiculous and needs to be addressed. Many of you are going to say I'm a butthurt girl who needs to shut up but honestly I'm sick of this shit, so what is Elle rambling on about now? I'm talking about girls who stream getting shit for having cleavage on show, I've had so many arguments about this subject with both men and women that I've decided to write about it here so I don't have to keep repeating myself.When I first started using Twitch I did notice a few girls/woman who used their assets to their advantage to get views and follows, fair enough it's their body so they're free to do as they pleased. Twitch old rules were: 

Dress...appropriately Nerds are sexy, and you're all magnificent, beautiful creatures, but let's try and keep this about the games, shall we? 

Wearing no clothing or sexually suggestive clothing - including lingerie, swimsuits, pasties, and undergarments - is prohibited, as well as any full nude torsos*, which applies to both male and female broadcasters. You may have a great six-pack, but that's better shared on the beach during a 2-on-2 volleyball game blasting "Playing with the Boys." 

* If it's unbearably hot where you are, and you happen to have your shirt off (guys) or a bikini top (girls), then just crop the webcam to your face. Problem solved. We sell t-shirts, and those are always acceptable. #Kappa


They've now changed it too:

Inappropriate Broadcaster Behavior and Attire
Nudity and conduct involving overtly sexual behavior and/or attire are prohibited.


As you can see in the new rules they're trying not to dictate too much but they're being very vague in what overly sexual attire would be and haven't given any examples of what could be overly sexual attire. Whereas the older rules were very preachy. Female streamers can easily find themselves being banned on twitch for showing a little bit of skin, the biggest issue with that I've noticed is guys sitting and streaming on twitch with no top on and they don't get any shit but a girl can be wearing a tank top with a little bit of cleavage and end up with a ban or being harassed for it. Either they cover up and they get little trolls saying get your tits out or they wear an outfit that shows them a bit and get told to cover up, it's like they can't win. Furthermore, people don't seem to know the difference between cleavage and having your tits out, there is a huge difference and I think perhaps people need to look it up.

Online gaming makes anxious.


At times I can be a very shy person especially when I don't know the person who is talking to me. This happens face to face, over the phone and even online, I get very anxious and overwhelmed, so much so that I need to take myself away from that situation. I've refused to go anywhere because of this exact reason, I don't feel comfortable enough around lots of people either, in fact, I tend to feel panicked and like I'm backed into a corner so I need to find a way out to get some air. My anxiety isn't as bad as some people get it but it's been a huge part of my life for a long time now, gaming has been a great outlet for my depression but not so much for my anxiety. I've made lots of friends through it but I've also been trolled a lot and had some disgusting things said to me.
