Excited for Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana

September 6, 2017

YsVIII

I played it on the PS4, but the price point on PC via Steam due to regional changes brought it down to around US$28.

Looking forward to getting the game and playing it for a spell in the next week.

It’s also one of the few times I actually watch Twitch streams. They gave it to reviewers of all types early, and the game was good, so it got a lot of attention from me via Reviews, YouTube and Twitch.

 

I just hope the PC beta goes well for the PC version.

Enjoying Elite Dangerous while I play, but anxious at firing up the game client!

July 6, 2017

It’s one of my weird quirks.

I enjoy a game I’m playing, but I get really anxious about starting up that game for fear of messing up, or otherwise making my game or memory of that game less fun that it was prior.

Usually, it’s the Shooty-bang-bang Fallouts, or EVE, or any game resembling a visual novel.

This week, it seems it’s Elite Dangerous: Horizons.

Even though I know I can afford the insurance to replace a ship I lost, I still feel bad at potentially sucking at the game.

That lingering fear is no fun at all.

So, I think I shall try and conquer my fears this morning. I’ll fire up the game after I finish this post.

Safe travels!

Returning to my free blog, but changing the URL a bit

June 5, 2017

Hey folks,

Since I’m trying to save more money for any impending life changes (also games), I’ve opted to go back to my old blog here, but adjusted the URL somewhat to read as https://gamesandgeekeryblog.wordpress.com/

Hopefully, there will be less pressure to write good stuff and more time to just enjoy games or life in general in the interim.

Now to spruce this place up a bit, and see what’s coming… OHMYGOD I’ve not yet finished FFXIV: Heavensward, and I bought Morrowind, and can’t find the stomach to play ESO, and I bought Injustice 2 for the PS4 but I suck at it.

 

This is fine.

On another note: Wonder Woman was a pretty stellar movie.

 

Game-based analysis paralysis

December 21, 2016

I enjoy the idea of having a blog, but it’s a sore spot that I’m sometimes tired of writing long, thoughtful posts.

Instead, I post diatribes on multiple Twitter posts or on Facebook.

That said, I’ve got GAMING BASED ANALYSIS PARALYSIS. I have some free time to play, but I’m so lost regarding what I actually want to play that I’m racked by indecision.

Do I play ARK on my guild’s private server?

LOTRO and Star Wars: The Old Republic also seem nice.

OH! What about ArcheAge or Atlas Reactor?

Maybe I should buy into Crowfall or Camelot Unchained?

Should I continue FFXV or wait for the patch that adds more stuff?

Do I try out more Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization or return to Destiny?

All those questions, and the looming Steam sale are driving me up the wall with indecision.

It’s also infuriating that I can’t find a game that can sustain my interest over more than a two-week period. Sigh….

What I’ve been up to for work. Elections coverage!

Tempted to return to LOTRO… also good and bad dreams

January 26, 2016

I don’t know what it is about dreams, but I had a work-related dream that I was tasked with playing and writing about The Lord of the Rings Online for my day job, so now I’m reinstalling and patching LOTRO instead of sleeping. LOL

This was promptly followed by a strange nightmare related to work once again, so now I’m unable to relax. Sigh…

Unintended gaming computer upgrades

November 19, 2015

Fallout 4 Garage

I’ve not been able to play Fallout 4 in two days because my computer sort of went kaput on me.

A long afternoon and evening, as well as P26,000 ($550) later, I now have a new motherboard, a better processor, and 16GB of RAM.

I’m still updating my computer to get back all the Windows 7 updates I lost, unfortunately. 😦

Also, I have to redownload Fallout 4 and my MMORPGs. 😦 That’s going to take a while.
