The Indiecator

Welcome to my blog!

My name’s Dan aka Magi or MagiWasTaken – and I’m a variety blogger and streamer from Germany who’s currently studying to become a teacher. I’ve loved video games ever since I was a little boy and nowdays I’m streaming on Twitch and blogging on here.

What can you expect from my blog?

Well, first up reviews! In my “Indietail” category, I’ll post reviews centered around Indie Games that have been lurking in my steam backlog or that devs have sent to me. It can be quite hard to know which games is really good and which one is not that great… so, it might be alright to get a second opinion in, right? So read about my pieces there!

Next up, the “Lookout Post” is about up-coming games that I’m excited about or looking forward to. I write about my first impressions with demos or I ask questions and interview devs. If you’re into that kind of stuff or if you’re in need of new entries for your wishlist, check that out!

In the “Gaming Journal” I’m talking about other games that I’ve been playing or trying out, from Destiny 2 to Monster Hunter World or other Not-So-Indie-Games. Discussions about Gaming in general and that kind of stuff go over there… or even posts about my journey on Twitch!

And well, there’s also “The Stray Sheep”, a format that I’ve been writing on for quite some time where I talk about a variety of topics from heavy to light topics: Essentially, it’s about all kinds of stuff and when I feel like posting something but it doesn’t necessarily fit the other categories… I will post it here! Just like the Bar in “Catherine”, this format is a place where all kinds of posts and ideas are coming from and going to… it’s a place where all kinds of guests can come to and have a great time together without getting labelled “Indie” or “Non-Indie”. It’s just a Stray Sheep.

So, yeah, that’s my blog in a nutshell. If you’re into it, why don’t you give me a follow and get notified on new posts? Alternatively, you may also check out my twitter account or the discord! Join me and others, come and hang out and enjoy the ride in the Mage Guild! ๐Ÿ™‚


TSS#70 – Blaugust Prompt #4 – Underrated Content?

Today, we’ve got another more “difficult” prompt: โ€œWhat type of content do you feel is severely underrated?โ€ This time around the prompt’s not difficult due to me struggling with words but rather because of the ambiguity of it. Roger pointed in his post out that it could be referencing writing and blogging… but also could be about video […]

TSS#69 – Blaugust Prompt 3 – Media shapes your worldview?

Blaugust Day 3 is here, and I’m late since I struggled with putting my thoughts into words. “What are some key sources of media (games/movies/etc.) that have shaped your worldview?” I do not like this prompt.  My worldview is based on all the experiences that I accumulated over the course of the last 21 years […]

TSS#68 – Blaugust Prompt #2 – Unpopular Opinions

“What is some popular piece of content/media that seems to be universally loved that you have never been able to understand?” – That’s today’s prompt, “hosted” by @Dragonray over at AzerothianLife. In their post, Dragon actually talked about Game of Thrones and I completely agree with her views. I personally only have watched the first […]

TSS#67 – Blaugust Prompt #1 – Fandoms

Blaugust is here! I mean, August is here!  Alas, here’s the first prompt by Belghast: “If you could change anything about one of your core fandoms, what would it be?” – and I’m already confused. My issue with this one is that I don’t think I’m part of really any fandom… at least I’m no […]

Humble Choice July 2020

I forgot to pause July’s Humble Choice so here’s what I got this month – actually wasn’t too bad, so that’s quite awesome!  As far as June went: I did get the bundle but I forgot to post about it and with exams and everything going on, I ended up not caring enough about it. […]
