To the Moon Play-Along – Minisodes

I honestly had no idea of what to expect of the Minisodes. All I knew going in is what I heard from others, that it would give us a peek at Sigmund Corporation. It not only did that but it was certainly an interesting peek for a lot reasons.

If you just stumbled here and have no idea what this post is about then here is the deal: this Play-Along project is like a book club except for video-games. It is being hosted by Naithin of Time to Loot and you can find more information as well as a link to all the participants here.

With that said, let’s get to the questions!

To the Moon Play-Along – Act 3

Act 3 of To the Moon answered a lot of the questions that has been in my mind since the start of the game. It also hit really hard in the feels to the point of almost making me cry. And I am not the type who easily cries with fiction!

Anyway, in case you just stumbled on this post, this is part of a Play-Along projected hosted by Naithin of Time to Loot. It is like Book Club but with games. You can find more details about it as well as links to all the participants over here.

Down below you can find my answers about Act 3.

To the Moon Play-Along – Act 2

It is time again for another post on the To The Moon Play-Along hosted by Naithin of Time to Loot. If you have no idea what I am talking about: this Play-Along is like a Book Club except with games. You can find more details as well as links to all the blogs participating here.

This time we’ll be tackling Act 2 of of To the Moon. I was already expecting it to be shorter than Act 1, thanks to the Play-Along discussion about the game but even then it still felt too short. On the other hand I don’t know how they could extend it without it feel like it was just wasting the player time. It also raised a lot more questions about Johnny’s situation than answered it. Hopefully everything will be tied up in Act 3.

WARNING: Spoilers ahead for Act 2 of To the Moon. Don’t read any further if you don’t want to be spoiled.

To the Moon Play-Along – Act 1

A little while ago Naithin, of Time to Loot, came with another idea for a shared blogging project. This time it is kind of a “book club” version of games, where we all play a game until a certain point and then discuss it.

The discussion in this case is more like answering a set of questions proposed by our host, Naithin. It is a good way to keep things focused so people don’t ramble on about different aspects of the game in each of their blogs. If you want more details, including links to all the posts from participating blog, you can find it here.

The first game we are playing for this project is To The Moon, from Freebird Games. I bought this game a long time ago, during a promotion, since I heard good things about it. But as is too common with me, I didn’t play it immediately saving it for when I was in the “mood” to play it and just forgot about it completely.

So, this seemed like a good opportunity to correct that mistake! Just from Act 1 I can already say it was worth every cent and just Act 1 alone already hit me in the feels more than I expected. 🙂

WARNING: From this point on there will be spoilers about Act 1 of the game. If you don’t want to be spoiled stop reading here.

[Civ VI] Long Live the Queen – The Great Buddhist Empire (Turns 171 – 180)

[Civ VI] Long Live the Queen – War in Ancient Times! (Turns 91 – 100)

When we started this project I honestly thought it would take at least a month for it to be my turn to play the game again, specially with so many participants. But it is actually going pretty fast, probably as a result of each of us being only able to play 10 turns.

If you have no idea what I am talking about then here is a brief explanation: Naithin of Time to Loot invited some of us bloggers to play a game of Civilization VI, cooperatively. Each of us play the game for 10 turns and then once it is done we pass on the save to the next person. Rinse and repeat until we either beat the game or meet utter defeat!

He even made a page for it that you can check here. You can find all the details there, including who the participants are and a link to each post narrating what happened during their turns. If you like what you see here, please consider following all of them as they are all excellent folks.

The banner on the top of the post was also made by Naithin.

[Civ VI] Long Live the Queen! – Meeting new people and killing them (or some of them) – Turns (11 – 20)

Naithin of Time to Loot came up with the idea of doing a succession game of Civilization VI and invited some of us bloggers to participate. You can find the details here.

The TL;DR version is: We’ll be playing only with the base game so the most people can join. Each person will play for 10 turns and then pass on the save for the next turn. Then they will blog about it. Rinse and repeat until we beat the game or everything go terribly wrong and we lose. XD

Also, if it isn’t obvious by the banner, we’ll be playing England.

The current participants are, in order of play:

  1. Naithin
  2. Rakuno
  3. Paeroka
  4. Tessa (aka Endalia)
  5. Krikket
  6. UnwiseOwl
  7. Rambling Redshirt
  8. Kanter

If you are interested on this series, please follow all of them to see where this games goes. 🙂

P.S.: Banner created by Naithin.

[SV] Back to the farm

With the release of Patch 1.4 for Stardew Valley I figured out it was a good time to go back to the game and check all the new stuff.

Usually I start a whole new save when there is a big update like that, both to reacquaint myself with the game as well as to learn all the new stuff in a more natural manner. Then once I get those goals accomplished I return to my original save. Or at least that used to be my plan. In practice I never end up going back to my original save, I just play the new one until I am satisfied and then move on to a different game.

This time I decide to go straight to my original save which led to some complications.

Hello Dark Souls, my old friend

This is post #3 for Blaugust 2019

Anyone that follows me on Twitter has seem me talking about returning to Dark  Souls. This post will be kind of an extended edition of those tweets.

Rewatching the “Let’s Play” videos that got me into Dark Souls in the first place got me in the mood to play the game again. It hasn’t helped that I also have been in a pretty moody headspace lately where I haven’t felt like doing anything, not even play games. So I have been poking my head into random games to see if they would stick and Dark Souls was one of those.

I am a Monster Hunter World Tourist

The MMO Tourist term is a pretty much known one among MMO players. For those who never heard of it, the idea of the term is to describe those players that left the game but come back for a few weeks (or months) once a MMO receives some new content. Then once they see anything that might pique their interest they leave just as quickly as they came back.

I am starting to feel my behavior with Monster Hunter World mimics that even though it hasn’t had any substantial update for a while. In my case it is more when an event is announced. I get back into the game with the full intention of checking the event out, and finally finishing the base game’s story, only  for a few days later to completely forget about it and then play something else.

I think there are a couple of reasons for that.
