Reflections of a lifetime video game player.

Disappointed Idealist. Adult videogame player. Writer of words. Drinker of tea. 

Welcome to PharaohCreator.com. I write about games, as neither hater nor hyper. If you're tired of the endless online hyperbole, then you've found a place that might suit you better. Take a seat. Have a cuppa. Let's chat for a while.

With the recent Ships of Fortune content drop into Sea of Thieves, big changes have been made to the Arena. Remember the Arena? It's the PvP mode that dropped with the anniversary update back in March 2019. I'll be honest - aside from a couple of early forays into the...

This week, Sea of Thieves got another impressive content update. Ships of Fortune brings with it a new emissary system, a boosted level cap, a revive mechanic, some sweeping Arena mode changes... and the cutest paid DLC in the history of cute things as paid DLC. It's a...

On Monday afternoon, I reached Athena 10 on Sea of Thieves. For those who don't follow the game closely, that's the highest reputation rank that it's currently possible to hit in the game. It's been the single longest video game grind I think I've ever undertaken; it t...

March 23, 2020

Sea of Thieves celebrated its second birthday a couple of days ago. I started sailing all the way back in the technical alpha, and have played regularly since launch - the last time being a little under 24 hours ago. I thought now would be a good time to sit back and h...

I'd always assumed that Dark Souls wasn't for someone like me. I see myself as very much an average gamer - middle of the road ability, a pretty typical amount of time available. I'm no longer the hardcore player I once was. I'm not a massive fan of difficulty spikes,...

It had been an uneventful voyage. My brother and I had departed Plunder Outpost, a ramshackle set of buildings nestled against a mountainside sticking out of the sea in the southern Ancient Isles an hour or two earlier, setting sail with no particular destination or ag...

November 24, 2019

I'm still playing Sea of Thieves. I think that at this point it's probably the game I've played for the longest single continuous period of time in my life - it came out 20 months ago, and so far I've not taken a break from it in the same way that I had by this point i...

July 28, 2019

This week, I finally got around to finishing the "Tall Tales" in Sea of Thieves. They are a series of adventures, each one a small piece of a larger narrative arc, that were added into the game with the Anniversary Update back in April. At the time, they were mooted as...

There are 3 minutes left on the clock. We're a little under 2000 points behind the team that are leading the contest - it's the guys on the blue ship. They've won every match I've played in during this session - and they're extremely vocal about their talents in the Se...

February 18, 2019

Changes are afoot on the Sea of Thieves. In fairness, since the game dropped it's been in a constant state of growth and change - patches and content drops have transformed it from its original vanilla version into what it is today, and every change to my mind has been...
