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.
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.
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?
I hope all is well with you all! So I am finishing up my routes of Cafe Enchante and realized that Ignis is so much like a FWB I used to have. Now don’t get me wrong they are different to a degree but they check a lot of the same boxes.

Maybe I am reading to much into it but it made me chuckle and I’ll admit happy memories came up. However it was strange to see. Has this happened to anyone else?
