Hey Dear Readers,
I know i take breaks from the blog and for that i am sorry. One thing you all don’t know is i have Generalized Anxiety Disorder and with medicine and therapy and gaming it all helps keep me center.
However i feel like another major factor is my gaming group. They are friends across time zones but they are ones who along with my family i always update on my medical saga.
I know people say that watching our favorite shows is a side of accepting and coping with trauma and though i can say there is some truth to it but, for me another way i deal is by playing my games.
Be it ESO, FALLOUT 76, or something else you fall into that world you make that character and you start your path. Yes you can do it alone but being with friends is part of what makes gaming such a wonderful hobby.
G.A.D makes me worry and regardless of the situation my mind when it was really bad would always jump to the worst possible situation even if logically i know it wasn’t possible or likely to happen. Phone calls, emails, personal calls it was at its worst crippling with me having to screen calls just to call them back so i could mental prepare myself to be on a call and talk to myself logically off the ledge of crazy not likely to happen situations.
Gaming settles my mind down and allows me to hone in and focus without the distraction of needing to answer the phone, emails popping up or needing to handle a fire or curveball from work. I know when i press a button something will happen be it intetacting with an item or jumping or using a spell / weapon etc. Gaming holds few surprises.
Maybe this is nearly 7am rambling but maybe this is something someone needs to read. I hope you all know regardless of your mental health or health in general its a process and a journey that never ends. That is okay though. Talk to your doctors, therapist, change meds or dosage to see if something else works is all okay to do.
Hey Dear Readers,
Question for you all. Specifically to MMO’s does end game matter to you?
As i had said in my prior post i’ve been playing a TON of ESO, Elder Scrolls Online. Now my dear Grey Claws is not even remotely in the thousands for his champion points level. As of last night he was i think 616.
My friends and i were trying to run Fang Lair and i was not putting out enough damange for my class. So after we gave up on the run. One of my guildmates was helping me understand things specific to end game and gear and abilities.
Now that guildmate was correct on many points. However when he was explaining it i felt extremely out of my depth and almost as if i were in a college lecture and it was coming at me way to fast and was extremely overwhelming.
So, this got me thinking. Does it matter? Sure some of this thought came from a bitter pill i had to swallow on not being good enough team wise, and yes that needed to change if i wanted to run harder vet content.
However, if i was just solo playing PVE cotent which there is a ton of i was melting enemies left and right. So i was frusterated to say the least.
During that long talk with my guildmate. I kept thinking “I just want to play MY game and not worry about how much i do damage wise. I just want to have fun”. I realized though for me its about balance. After i slept on the issue and came back to it with a clearer head and started to rework Grey Claws I did see a change; which even helped in the in PVE content.
Now, truth be told i have not run my new build in a vet dungeon but i am feeling good and most importantly the changes i made were right for me and how i play.
What do you all think of end game content? Is it worth it. Should at that point just be a numbers game or what. Do games need to rework it or how should it be handled. Let me know in the comments.
Hello my dear readers! 🙂
I promise you all i am very much still alive. I took a bit of a blogging break for reasons. However, that does not mean i have not been gaming. If you all have been watching my twitch streams, or the replays you’ll know i have been knee deep in ESO or otherwise known as ElderScrolls Online.
I decided with the now new release of their next year long story coming June 21st at the time for Xbox if i was going to get back into the game now wohld be the time. So my one and only character Grey-Claws was made.
Grey-Claws is a Khajit Necromancer and boy do i have a blast playing him. So far as of this posting i am in the Summerset DLC zone with hopes of getting to the High Isle storyline soon.
Between dungeons, delves, open world bosses, crafting, daily quest, in game events there is more then enough to keep you and your character busy for THOUSANDS of hours. Plus with the latest expansion ESO launched its own in game card game.
Now is 100% the best time to get back into ESO if you are a new or returning player.
Hey Dear Readers!
I know it’s been a minute but I have a good reason, I had tried to start a board game and card game group in my building. Though I seemed to cause the ladies in my building enough to talk about no one seemed interested and or Covid caused them to get cold feet.
So here I am with a small library of board and card games and few people to game with the exception of my dear friend R. She and I only are able to get together on Wednesday or Thursday schedule depending of course. Fear not though dear friends, I am still gonna keep at it.
There is a local club that gets together on Tuesday but I’ve yet to make it there. Plus Covid keeps changing everything so I’ll see what happens with that. Presently R and I are having great time playing Unstable Unicorns the NSFW version, Also we only have one more box from our Mallory Rock story until we can wrap that case up and start the next one.
Hello my wonderful readers!
Happy Newyear! I hope everyone had fun. I however got a cold. BOOO lol. So since Covid is still very much a thing so on top of gaming. I have really gotten into the hobby of board and card games. From Monopoly to Farkle to anything in between my friend R and I have been getting into it. Here are a few of what we have been playing.
- Fox in the Forest
- HAK stand alone board games
- Catan Rivals
We have had great fun with all of these and will continue to keep up the hobby. What is everyone playing board and card game wise? I taught my mother how to play fox in the forest and she was hooked and beat me two times in a row. Was an interesting way to bring in the new years! lol.
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,
Its been a few weeks since my last update and that is due to my Xbox 1 I gave to my folks so they could stream their favorite shows. My mother is in heaven let me tell. I have since upgraded to the series S all digital edition. So far I am loving it. However I’ll admit I am not blown away.
I am saying this because, for me it is a lot like having normal radio vs having Satellite radio. Sure it is nice to have the extra channels but if you don’t have it you aren’t missing much and you carry on with your rocking local channels. My S is great and I am thrilled to have updated but it is not Wowing me the way I expected it would as of yet. Maybe once more titles come out or I upgrade my tv I will then see a difference. Here is hoping at least haha.
How is everyone else doing? Did we enjoy our thanksgiving.
So the Count of Saint Germain has been keeping me company while I recover from a small surgery. We’ve been walking around the London of Code Realize: Gaurdian of Rebirth and he has been showing me all the differences of a steam city of the 19th Century. Now it will be interesting to see how the game plays out this myth of a man. Will I know why he regularly prays will i end up being the one of the reasons why he smiles? He is not an easy read.
The count up to this point of Code Realize seems to just be along for the fun of it. He is not a master thief like Lupin, or Vampire hunter like Van Hellsing, or tinker with machines like Impey or master chemist like Victor. He in the plan of a heist would be the money haha.
Saint Germain is allowing us all to stay at his country estate simply because it tickles his fancy. The only reason he knows of Lupin and Impey at the start of the game is because he ran into them and insisted to take part in their plan not because he was actually recruited. I find this interesting from a story standpoint because it is a lingering question of why?
I will be interested in seeing how the MC and the Count relationship evovles as the stories continue. He has been great company while i recover. Now we are off to rob a train talk later. 🙂
Hello Dear Friends! 🙂
So i spent Sunday gaming in bed playing Code Realize: Gaurdian of Rebirth since pain wise it was not the best of days.
Then i was swept away and taken to a carnival by Lupin, Victor and Impey. Truly a great time. The smells of vendors, the laughter, the good times. This route since it is my first play through i decided to spend it with Victor and munching on some fairy floss. Which can i just say screw calling it cotton candy. I hear by say we need to bring back the term fairy floss haha.
Victor thus far is my favorite guy in this game. He is sweet, caring, smart and geeky haha. All in the best of ways. Also does no one else think its funny that he has a pair of victorian headphones around his neck. Like what does he plug them into. i love how in this game we can see them starting their day around the breakfast table enjoying a meal and figuring out their plan for the day ahead.
Might switch things up and see if the count has anything to say or do. Everyone if they haven’t needs to read where our charming men come from in in myth and ledgend. Really fancinating stuff.
These men in these games make a lazy painful sunday so much more enjoyable. What do you all do to unwind?
Hello Friends! 🙂 For the first time ever in my life I am doing some Extra Curricular Activates with some hot men. This is also due to playing the dating sim of the same name Extra Curricular Activities. This LGBT furry gay game is super cute and set in college.
You are playing as a college human tennis player among some furry teammates. The art style is great my only issue with the art design is with the design of the MC you play. I feel like he looks like a middle aged man not a college athlete. Maybe its just me though.
Presently I am playing the route of Spencer your adorable best friend from before college and it is a great story with some fantastic dialog and great art. Put on top of that Spencer has some secrets of his own while he is going through college you find out along the way. He is the bestest boy who also happens to be a husky haha. He may be Spencer in the story but to me he is White Thunder 🙂
I am excited to see the rest of the story of Spencer play out along with the rest of the routes the game has including the teams Tennis coach. The team who did this clearly has a lot of love and care into the game and highly recommend everyone give it a go.
