Mama’s Calling

I feel its grasp, slowly taking hold of my mind once again. It wants me to come home, it wants me back, just like it always does. Final Fantasy XI’s siren song is calling me back home once again, back to Vana’Diel. I’m trying very hard not to answer. I love FFXI, more than anyContinue reading “Mama’s Calling”

Goldilocks Zone

In sports, there’s a concept called playing out of your “‘natural’ position”, which basically means, that you’re playing in a role that’s not making the most of your skills. Like a Catcher playing Shortstop, what the Catcher does on the field doesn’t necessarily carry over to that position. A Shortstop is typically faster, more defensively-minded,Continue reading “Goldilocks Zone”

The Emotionometer Is Busted

I have a severe distaste for stuff like Dating Sims, there’s little in the way of gameplay, and it’s mostly an excuse to gawk at the “omg so hot” characters. My brain is wired for intense, technical, high-speed combat, and involved problem-solving. Give me brain-warping puzzles and fierce, intense combat over “click button to smooch”Continue reading “The Emotionometer Is Busted”

Wake Up, It’s Gameday

I do my best work when I’m awake. Obviously, most people do, but, I mean awake, as in, not stifling a yawn and fighting off sleep. Last night, I actually played Destiny 2 with my brother, we ran Dares of Eternity, a couple Nightfalls, and…I was awake enough to really contribute. Checking the Post-Game CarnageContinue reading “Wake Up, It’s Gameday”

Some Thoughts on the Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

I’m ruminating right now. Ruminating on the new Zelda, and how it’s (finally) got a title, and an actual release date, rather than a window. I’m of a few minds on this, since it’s obviously going to be the Biggest Deal when it drops (if all stays on schedule) in May of 2023. And, IContinue reading “Some Thoughts on the Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom”

Backseat Driving

Anyone in the Blaugust Discord could probably tell you I get WAY too invested in football. Like, invested enough to try and see how I could get a Coach thrown in prison for Coaching Malpractice. I am by no means a Cincinnati Bengals “fan”, I don’t have the blood pressure to subject myself to thatContinue reading “Backseat Driving”

Into the Vortex of Stupid

I love bad football, just, not when it’s my teams are playing it. The “Baby, I’m Burnin’” game is forever seared into my brain, Auburn 3, Mississippi State 2. An absolute trash fire of zero effective offense, I revel in the absolute garbage of it. A game that should have gotten both coaching staffs exiledContinue reading “Into the Vortex of Stupid”

Guild Wars 2 – Why Are We Here?

I reinstalled Guild Wars 2 last night, and picked back up my Elementalist. I’m…a little confused as to what I’m doing, where I’m going, and why the game keeps puking Experience over my head at me. I went from Level 42 to 45 with very little actual effort, and spent half the time I playedContinue reading “Guild Wars 2 – Why Are We Here?”

#Blaugust2022 Day 24 – On the Destiny 2 Showcase

Destiny 2’s next expansion, “Lightfall” was shown off yesterday at the “Destiny 2 Showcase”, and it looks pretty cool. A new, cyberpunk-ish area, “Neomuna” on Neptune, new enemies, a new Element in “Strand” (Hideo Kojima, you are a visionary), and a whole mess of Quality of Life features that players have been clamoring for. ThingsContinue reading “#Blaugust2022 Day 24 – On the Destiny 2 Showcase”

#Blaugust2022 Day 21 – On Burnout and Tedium

My days off go by too fast now. My work days go by too fast as well. I mean, it’s already Day 21 of this thing, and I want it all to slow down. After taking all the time off that I have recently, I just want to slip away from everything for a while.Continue reading “#Blaugust2022 Day 21 – On Burnout and Tedium”
