Games I’ve been playing – November 2019

After recovering somewhat from my depression on October I began this month with the intention of playing ALL THE GAMES! … which didn’t last for long as I my plans got disrupted by the Ishgardian Restoration in Final Fantasy XIV and that sweet, sweet craft XP. But that also didn’t last as long as I thought it would and I end up going back to some other games I wanted to play.

In the end I played a lot of games but I didn’t feel like I played enough of them. In fact I barely touched some of them but I will mention them here anyway least I forget my current thoughts about these games.

With all that said, these are the games I’ve been playing this past month:

Games I’ve been playing – October 2019

I am sure I am starting to sound like a broken record by now but I had a lot of plans for this month that ended up dashed by depression.

It might seem strange to have depression stop me enjoying certain games but that is just how it is for me. When I am suffering from it I tend to stick to just certain, known games, usually ones that don’t require much energy, thinking or just have something I feel like playing at that moment. MMOs are the ones that suffer the most as I also don’t feel like doing any kind of social activity, even more so if it means dealing with complete strangers.

The good news though is that I seem to be getting over this particular crisis and I am getting back to a “MUST PLAY ALL THE GAMES!” mood. Which is a good sign in this case. XD

Anyway, on to the games!

If I could only play 5 games in a year

Naithin, of Time to Loot, suggested this writing prompt over the Blaugust Discord:

For one whole year you are only allowed to play five games (including DLCs).

Apparently it is something that started on Twitter and is now making the rounds through the blogosphere. Naithin decided to add a few rules though because he felt that just being allowed to play 5 games for an entire year wasn’t punishment enough!

Games I’ve been playing – September 2019

My goal for September was to continue playing the same games as I was playing in the previous month. Failing that (which I kinda expected to happen) then it would be to make as much progress in Judgment and Fire Emblem Three Houses as I could as well as get back into Monster Hunter World.

To the surprise of no-one the later end up happening. Well, sort of. I did play a bunch of Judgement and Fire Emblem Three Houses. Monster Hunter World though I kept post-poning for a reason or another. Despite that I didn’t feel like I played enough of those two games despite having made some good progress on them. To make matters worse I got hit with depression on the last week of the month and end up updating my mods for Fallout 4 to serve as my “comfort food” of gaming and to see if it would scratch my itch for something creative.

I better start talking about each game individually least I start to ramble!

I will skip the last two steps this time since I am feeling lazy and coming up with questions are hard. If anyone wants to answer questions from a random person in the internet feel free to answer the ones from the previous time I got tagged.

Now on to the questions by Magimos!

Games I’ve been playing – August 2019

There were so many games to play this month. So many that I almost lost what little reason I have and went “Let’s play ALL the  games!”. Not trying that was the wisest choice because even the ones I decided to play didn’t get as much time in them as I wished due to a combination of general lack of energy and being busy with Blaugust.

I’d like this next month to at least keep playing the new ones and making some progress on them though. But we’ll see how the month turns out.

Alright, this is what I have been up to this month:

Characters and me

Post #15 for Blaugust 2019

Blaugust is ending and with this post I accomplished my goal for it this year. Once again it was pretty fun with a lot of new blogs (or new to me) participating and some pretty good discussion on the Discord server. 🙂

I was going to do a recap of Final Fantasy’s XIV anniversary event, the Rising, for this last post but I haven’t felt like playing it for a while and haven’t done it yet. So I will just use this Twitter poll by Belghast, of Tales of the Aggronaut, as my blog prompt for the day. To quote the poll:

There is a discussion happening elsewhere so I’m curious. For me all of my game characters are just cosmetic shells for the digital “me”. Getting the impression I am deeply in the minority here

I have no idea where this discussion happened or what is being talked about but I am going to join anyway and there is no one that can stop me! Mwahahahaha! 😀

My least favorite classes to play

Post #14 for Blaugust 2019

Before starting just a bit of administrative news. Over the weekend I changed hosts for the blog. I was trying to put this off until the end of the Blaugust to lessen the possibility of chaos but circumstances forced me to do it now. So if things were broken or weird during the weekend that is why.

This was far more painful than I expected due to, in large part, some dumb mistakes I made. Also right now “Likes” and “Related Posts” are broken because Jetpack is a jerk and everything I tried to fix hasn’t quiet worked. I will keep trying. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Anyway, let’s get to this post as we continue with topic prompts from last year’s Blaugust. This time it is from Ocean Marie of Soul of the Forest. Her prompt is:

What Class Do you REFUSE to Play?

Forewarning: This will be a bit rambly. :p

My reasons to replay games

This is post #13 for Blaugust 2019

Over at the Dating Sims On The Holodeck, TheRoyalFamily wrote an interesting post about Replaying Games. It is was just an answer to a question from a post from Kim of Later Levels about if people replay a game immediately after finishing it.

Although I’d like to say my answer was like TheRoyalFamily and that I did, indeed, replay a game immediately after finishing it I can’t say with 100% conviction that I did and which games.

I can at least say what are my reasons to replay a game though…. which come to think about it might be universal. But who knows, maybe they aren’t and maybe there are people with different motivations out there!

Anyway, this is what usually motivates me to play a game again from the start, after finishing it:

If I could only play one game for the rest of the year

Post #12 for Blaugust 2019

Continuing with prompts from last year’s Blaugust, this time it is one from Chestnut from Gamer Girl Confessions:

If you could only play one game for the rest of 2018, what would it be? It doesn’t have to be an MMO. Would you just ignore games the rest of the year if you could only play one?

I was going to pick Final Fantasy XIV but that kind feels like cheating. Plus I already talk a lot about Final Fantasy XIV here so might as well choose a different game.

Having said that if I could only play one game for the rest of the year it would be Fire Emblem Three Houses.
