1. Video Roundup: Nearly Christmas Break!

    December 19, 2013 ♥ Posted in: YouTube videos by Kristina Horner

    Hey everyone! I have really been meaning to write up my second bucket list post (which highlights my recent trip to the Winchester Mystery House)… but I’ve been both sick and distracted with the Project 4 Awesome, so it hasn’t happened yet. I have posted a lot of videos recently, however, so I thought I would tide us all over with a round-up post of all of those in the meantime.

    First up is my Farewell video to my Fiesta, Rainbow Dash. I had a good run with the Fiesta Movement, but it’s back to reality now. This video was my way of saying goodbye:


    We also started playing Explore the Dungeon Because I Don’t Know (the new Adventure Time game) over on Team Hypercube. We’re only three episodes in, so it’s a good time to jump in on this new series. Not only will we be bringing on special guests to play with us, but it’s the first game we’ve started using picture-in-picture for… meaning you can see a video of us in the corner while we play! It’s a lot of fun so far and I guarantee it’s only going to get better:


    We’re also getting dangerously close to WEEK 100 on Dokapon Kingdom, so you might want to catch up so you don’t miss it! Check out Team Hypercube and subscribe, because more things are going to be happening there in the new year. You’ll want to keep an eye on it.

    Coming soon on this blog will be my bucket list post, reviews of the two most recent ipsy bags, and a lot of fun outfit of the day posts for the holiday plans I have on the horizon. Thanks for sticking with me and I’ll be back again soon. In the mean time, let me know in the comments who your favorite Adventure Time character is and which one you’d want to play in the new WiiU game!

  2. Games I Want to Play After Attending PAX ’13

    September 4, 2013 ♥ Posted in: Geek Events, Nerd Topics by Kristina Horner

    While I was at PAX, I kept a notepad list of all the games that caught my eye. From console games to app games to indie games, there’s just so much exciting stuff filling the halls of this convention that it would be impossible to remember everything. As promised – today’s blog post is going to be the list of games I wrote down on my list.

    Lovers in a Dangerous Space Time: This was a co-op indie game I watched a demo of that looked colorful and fun and potentially good for the Team Hypercube channel. It takes place in space inside a pink Death Star where you’re running around controlling a ship while simultaneously fighting bad guys in space. Keep an eye out for playthroughs of this one.images

    Escape Goat 2: This was a simple but fun puzzle platformer where you play a goat progressing through a dungeon. I got to test this game out and I enjoyed it quite a bit.


    Mount Your Friends: I actually don’t remember how this game got on my list (because I didn’t actually see it at PAX), but I think someone just recommended it to me? From what I have read online, you use your friends bodies and a goat to climb to certain heights? Or something? I don’t know.steamworkshop_collection_1370628196_collection_branding
    Adventure Time : Explore the Dungeon Because I Don’t Know!: This game just looks amazing. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the previous Adventure Time game (Hey Ice King Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?) but this new one that comes out in the fall is a co-op multiplayer where you battle your way through a dungeon as various characters from the Land of Ooo. I need it.

    Prison Architect: This is a Steam game that was recommended to me because of my recent obsession with the show Orange is the New Black combined with my love of Roller Coaster Tycoon. I can’t wait to play it.

    Peggle 2: Peggle is one of those really standard games (hit all the orage pegs before you run out of balls) but the first version of the game was my standard go-to on long airplane rides. I’m excited to see what’s different in this new version.
    Bastion: I’m a big fan of great iPad games (which I’m sure you probably already know) and this was one that was recommended to me for that reason. It looks cool, though I know very little about it right now. It’s also available on PC, if you don’t own an iPad.

    Super Mario 3D World: This just looks awesome. I’ll give any new Mario game a try, and the combination of co-op Mario with 3D graphics should be pretty awesome. Plus it’s about time we get some new WiiU games!

    Windborne: This was a game I got to demo, mostly because there was a prize wheel at their booth that I wanted to spin and you had to play the game to get to do so. It was a lot like Minecraft but sort of prettier, which I liked. I would give this game a try.
    Hate Plus: I don’t know anything about this game, but the art was amazing and they were offering QR codes for special Animal Crossing clothing items, so on the list it went.
    Delver’s Drop: I saw this game in the Indie corner! It looked amazing – the art was beautiful and everything was pink, but not in a condescending way. It’s a 2D action RPG and I can’t wait to give it a try.
    Have you heard of or played any of these games? What did you think of them? Which would you be interested in watching me play on Team Hypercube? Let me know in the comments – or as always, feel free to leave other game suggestions based on the type of things I’m already into!

  3. Look #12: PAX Day One!

    August 31, 2013 ♥ Posted in: Fashion/Beauty, Geek Events, Outfit of the Day by Kristina Horner



    Yesterday was the first day of PAX PRIME and I couldn’t be more excited. On my first day I wandered the Expo Hall, signed up for raffles, purchased a few things from the We Love Fine booth that I’m sure you’ll see popping up in future Outfit of the Day posts, demo-ed games, stopped by a variety show at the Triple Door and ended the night with a hilarious nerdy improv show! It was an amazing first day – and although my feet already hurt, I can’t wait to get back down there and do it all again today.

    For the first day, I decided to go casual. I wore a super fun Adventure Time shirt I got from TeeFury a while back, and my brand new blue striped shorts from ModCloth. For the record, I got two compliments on those shorts from strangers, and one crazy bus lady who told me to “wear clothes over my underwear next time”. I’m going to say all press is good press on that one…?

    Lastly I threw on my old but reliable Steve Madden boots, grabbed my standard convention bag with the emoticon face on the side and strapped my PAX badges onto a My Little Pony lanyard. I felt awesome – and was never once uncomfortable. I plan to dress up for some of the other days, but shorts and a t-shirt was a solid choice for Day 1.

    How do you accessorize a plain t-shirt? I’m curious about your tips – because I usually struggle to find ways to make the embarrassing amount of nerdy tees I own work beyond night shirts. Let me know in the comments!
