Dear venues, please keep the booking systems

I really enjoy visiting quiet places. I also really enjoy visiting busy places. I don't enjoy overly busy places, and neither does my wife. Our kids hate it. Organising days out in our house factors in an answer to an important question - "Will the place be busy?". If we think it's going to be […]

MechWarrior Online and the perils of Steam Reviews

Those of you who are regular watchers of the channel will know that I have come to enjoy MechWarrior Online. A lot, in fact. So much so, hardly any other game in my library is getting a look in. Which is unusual for me - an individual who loves his real and turn based strategy, […]

The 2020 Annual Raskup

Yes! Another year has gone by like a Formula 1 car on amphetamine, but not without its fair share of great games that have not only featured on the channel but I have also enjoyed in private. As we come to the finish flag of 2020, a supernatural year of sorts, allow me to reminisce […]

A Comparison of my Top 3 Roguelike Deckbuilders

Here is a genre I had no experience in until last year, and I very quickly fell in love with. Better still, it appears that the roguelike deckbuilder appears to be here to stay. Just when you think the hype over one game has started to drop, another comes along and the train gets going […]

Kards - my favourite cards (so far)

Kards is an outstanding free to play CCG with a good community and supportive developers. Matchmaking is fair, with new players playing other new players, while those with tons of experience play with others at the top. As ever with these kind of games, time and patience will unlock a wider range of cards, allowing […]

Superfan Reviews - the comical, the sad, and the downright complexing

As users of Steam, we all do it. We peruse the gazillion amount of games in the catalog and a game catches our interest. Once you've seen the trailer, read the description, you then want to read the reviews. You've already seen that most of the reviews are positive, but you soon drill down to […]

PlanetRask merging with Priority One Gaming

When I started streaming, I had no idea where it would go and what would be involved. Four years later, 280 followers, a handful of awesome subscribers, and a community grew into a place called PlanetRask. Through PlanetRask I have met some frigging great people, many I hope will be friends for many years to […]

Living in the World of Adventures - MattyRaskers tribute to The Flower Kings Part 2

Circa 2003 I honestly cannot remember a time when I felt more inclined to be part of a fan club than now. If I recall correctly, it was called the World of Adventures (please can someone correct me if I'm wrong!) but I remember paying an annual subscription which granted me a fan club CD […]

Living in the World of Adventures - MattyRaskers tribute to The Flower Kings Part 1

In the modern Progressive Rock world, The Flower Kings are one of the biggest names, if not the biggest. In my world, they are my all time favourite group. Today, I want to pay tribute to them and their music, and what their music has meant to me in the last eighteen years. July 2001, […]

A list of all Company Of Heroes Missions

I've had the game for years, but recently I completed the super difficult Mortain: Counterattack mission of the US campaign. This compelled me to go ahead and complete as many campaigns as I could. But here's the thing - I wanted to find out how many missions were in each campaign and unless I'm doing […]

The 2017 Annual Raskup

Well, that is it! Another year passes. A highly charged year of insane politics and clashes of ideologies cannot hide the fact that actually, it's been a pretty fantastic year of gaming. Here are my gaming highlights (or what I am going to call my Raskup. Get it? Roundup? Raskup? Ahh forget it :D) of […]

Dear Esther - The Story Explained

A little gem of an experience can be found while trawling through the extensive list of games on Steam called "Dear Esther". While not strictly a game, it requires player interaction in order to complete it. But you're not competing against anything, you are simply playing the role of a narrator of a story that […]
