Hello Dear Readers,
Stop me if this has happened to you. Your gaming group changes due to life, your games change, your interest changes. All of these are okay.
Be it in gaming, or work or personal life. Change happens it can be scary and we may hate it but we must go on.
It does not mean your friendships die. Friendships if they are true do not have an expiration date to them. Let them change but keep them close.
Hello Friends and Readers,
I cannot sleep and i’ve been formating this post in my head for nearly a month now. So, i figured why not strike while the iron is hot and i cannot sleep.
I am STILL playing through ESO (Elder Scrolls Online) and i am loving it. I am if you cannot tell from my prior postings big on storh and boy does ESO deliver. That said though it falls short at times when, in my opinion matters. I’ll give some examples below but of course i’d love to hear your thoughts.
1. The race you choose should have more of an impact on how the world reacts to you. They do this somewhat but not nearly as much as they should.
As an Argonian if you are in the Ebon heart pact there is a side quest in Deshann where you are saving a local village of fellow Argonian the Elder recognized you as a fellow Saxhleel and you respond in kind saying you want to help.
Small things like this happen if you are in the correct alliance with one of the allied races. However if you are for example a Khajiit in the Ebon heart pact gets nothing dialog wise which is a let down from a story standpoint
2. Same can be said for if you choose to become a werewolf or vampire. Yeah you have small dialog with Lyris and Count Ravenwatch if you are a Vampire but not much else. Furthermore if you are a vampire during the second half of the greymoor chapter. Your vampire companion doesn’t even acknowledge you as a vampire and you have to use pirtals to travel around. That was a missed opportunity if i ever knew one.
I respect that this is an MMO so it is unlikely that all boxes could be checked but this lack of forsight just seems lazy to me. I still love the game but it takes me out of my experiance of being my character and the story i am telling in my head.
What do you all think. Have you come across this in games you love?
Hello Awesome Readers,
So maybe this is because i just got done making my first ever crockpot meal while having Julie and Julia playing in the background but has anyone noticed how awesome meals in games look?
Like regardless of if it is Zelda Breath of the Wild or Pokemon Sword and Shield. They all looked good. This also may help explain why i have a stomach and not the six pack abs i dream of every night haha.
I don’t know how many of you would do this and i still have a ways to go on the curry dex but there were times i would just play pokemon to figure out the newest combination or if i could get gold again.
Same with playing BOTW i would run around the land and collect in ingredients to throw in the pot to see what affect it may have.
There is something so universal and so amazing about food being able to bring people together isn’t there. Haha.
Hey Dear Readers,
I hope everyone has been well. I think it is amazing as a gamer the communities we are a part of.
I think about the great group of people i play with who are all across the spectrum. Young, old, some play only one game others play a few different ones.
I think about the group in Startrek Online who i play with and who are so welcoming and they always make sure everyone has a place and has missions done if there is an event going on.
Communities are of course what we make of them but wow when you make them and are a part of them it is pardon the pun a game changer.
So its been a minute since i’ve updated you all and that is in large part due to being sucked into StarTrek Online.
This game is nothing new to many MMO players but wow has it held up well. I am as you all could guess playing on Xbox which is a few months behind but it is still a wonderful experiance with House United launched back in August.
Also for an older MMO they have a ton of different campaign paths which has not helped my mindless hours put into my many different characters.
What do you all think have you played STO? What faction is your favorite, what about ship what do you like to fly around in. I would love to more.
So i often think we as gamers need to remember its okay to go offline. You’re thinking okay Otome. What do you mean by that. Well let me tell you my dear reader.
I mean two things from that.
1. Don’t forget we live on this big ball with nature, and birds, and sunshine. Every now and then get out of your room, or house and see the outside world. Your mental health and eyes will thank you. Even if it just to decompress from that last boss battle, or that crazy round you just had in a shooter.
2. Also probably most importantly. Don’t forget to take time for you. Yes i know you’re thinking you game there for you already are taking time for you. Yes that is true enough but i mean more then that. Don’t forget your favorite shows or maybe that one anime you’ve been meaning to watch but you just haven’t had a moment to yourself when you get online to do that.
That is what going offline is for we gamers love our games. No duh, and we also love our gaming community we’ve built up of all our friends. However that said. I don’t know about you all but at times when i get online i go into the who is gonna invite me to their party first mode.
Don’t get me wrong it is wonderful to feel loved by my gaming friends but as someone who cut the cable cord and use my xbox to stream there are times where i just want a me day
If i join my friends later on great but i really want a day where i can binge watch some Downton Abbey or just get losy in a youtube hole and take a mental break from killing bosses or grinding that next level out.
Maybe you all can be in a party with friends who are gaming or doing their own thing while you are doing yours and if you can that is awesome. I know a few people like that but i would just remind you to take time for you.
Enjoy going offline and being in the moment as much as we all love going into our digital worlds of choice. 🙂
So here is my question for you all. Aside from gaming what is something you all do for you. Give me another hobby you like. 🙂 i can’t wait to read them.
Pardon the corny title but it is true. The phone game Criminal Desires by Genuis yaoi studio’s is thus far pretty great.
Yes its a phone game, yes there are micro transactions to be able to get to say the thing that will make your possible crush fall for you faster. However, the writing didn’t make me feel like i was doomed choosing another option.
You play a cop and from what i gather your two main crushes are your partner (great play on words there) Rob and the not so criminal criminal Christopher. Both well drawn both strikingly handsome and i am excited to learn more of their story as it continues.
There is also your boss Clint who i wouldn’t mind getting to know as well. He seems like a good guy but something tells me there are a few things he is hiding in his closet he doesn’t want others to know. Namely the MC.
I am only a few episodes in but this game has a lot of promise and who doesn’t love some man on man cop drama. They even bring their own cuffs to the bedroom lol.
I am most interested in this stories crime family you are investigating. Are they as wonderful as they seem or not so much. Furthermore does Christopher remember meeting you as a cop or are you in the clear. So many questions i want to dive back in.
What does everyone else think? Have you all played this or possibly played another game i don’t know. Lets check it out together send me a shout.
Also don’t forget to follow me on twitch now as well and come say Hi. I love making friends and talk gaming. http://www.twitch.tv/otomebro
Hey Friends! How are you all doing? I’ve played Longstory. This viaual novel I played it awhile ago and enjoyed it but not much for replayablity at least for me.
Longstory has you playing as a middleschooler and also allows you to play as male, female or even non-binary. You have some ability to change up the look and the art style is fun and lighthearted.
You can date any one of your classmates including the school mascot a turkeyhawk, which is honestly pretty comical. You have every type of school person to choose from. The jock, the shy girl, the outcast, and also a internet friend.
Each one has their own backstory and also dating scenes. The core story though stays the same throughout like any visual novel.
The DLC is also a nice addition and adds a fun detail but doesn’t really end end in a way you would expect. Almost feel rushed.
What did you all think of it, have you all played it?
Hello my wonderful friends! So recently I have found two new visual novel games I am loving and not wanting to end. They are both LGBTQ furry games. The first is Adastra and the second is Nekojishi. I highly recommend both if you have not played them. Again though, I am probably late to the party and I am sure a lot of people have played them.
Both have great art styles but are different and fun in their own way. Also the setting is different for both which I find cool. Do I want to visit another planet I can do that with Adastra; or do I want to go to Taiwan then Nekojishi is what I want to dive into first. Regardless of which you choose first you cannot go wrong.
Another difference is that Adastra has only one romance option where as Nekojishi has three possible love interest you can go down the path with and also a true ending so there is a fair bit of re-playability there like a normal Otome game.
I cam for the gay relationships but I stayed for the hot furry bodies haha 🙂
