Ah I see. It's been quite a while since I've watched any playthroughs, it's almost like watching a movie as it needs quite a bit of time and attention.

And not really, the games are based on the books and the majority of the game is either combat, exploring or dialogue. There are sex scenes of course but they only really come in W3 and they're not common and mostly skippable. I'd say the games are mostly worth playing from W1, it's old but damn good imo. Though W3 is still a good place to start for those who don't want to invest or play old games.
Definitely an awesome series, and probably the nicest and most consumer-friendly game devs too.

A pretty funny video they made recently:
Make love, not war.
Except for in games... everybody loves war in games. And love, yep, that too.

Sounds interesting! I'll check it out at the end of my semester. :thumbsup:
Also the video you show me is very awkwardly funny. :icon_smile_rofl: Almost had me died laughing!
At 1:20 was totally NSFW, lucky me I was wearing headphone at that moment. :D

I listen to all sorts of stuff while working - YouTube being the provider of that. It can be anything, as said above - music, a show, a documentary, a podcast, and so forth. Usually I like something that lasts a while - over an hour, so I don't have to sit and fiddle all the time with what to listen to next. For instance: there's a really good Cold War documentary on YouTube - 24 episodes, and narrated by Kenneth Branagh from the 90s, but still very much relevant. That way I can listen and learn at the same time. Or it can be a funny game playthrough - usually by Sips, on YouTube as well - such as the Thimbleweed Park playthough - plenty of episodes, and the playlist can just play; or a funny podcast - also on there - like the Tri-Force podcast. There are endless possibilities :)

I really love the latter stuff you mentioned, I'm currently re-listening to the Triforce and it's definitely one of the more entertaining yet not engaging podcasts. Sips' live streams are good but of course the topic of conversation is the game, and it ends up being noise in the background, depending what game of course. But I'll definitely check out that Cold War documentary, I like the idea of listening and learning. :thumbsup_dude:
Other than that, lately I've been listening to H3H3 podcast, they're one of the more frequent uploaders I like. When I end up running out of good content I too end up stopping in the middle of work and having to search for something else to listen to :icon_miffed:

Joy of Painting with Bob Ross is a good background noise. So soothing, It's available on youtube as well

That didn't even cross my mind! I'll hope I don't fall asleep to his voice... :icon_lol:

I completely forgot about Bob Ross! :icon_bobross: That twitch channel is essential for me, his happy little clouds and trees make me not want to kill myself when doing super boring tasks such us UV unwrapping.

I listen to laid back electronic. It really helps me concentrate.
