First impressions Stellaris

They certainly know how to sell a deal....Stellaris is one of those games I kept wanting to give a try but wasn’t sure if I would enjoy it. The reason for that is because it is developed by the same Paradox, the same company responsible for Crusader Kings 2. Now I love Crusader Kings 2 but that game has a very steep learning curve right from the start. My fear was that Stellaris would be  the same and for a game like that I just need to be in the right mindset.

Since Steam had a free weekend for Stellaris I decided that this would be the time to find out if it was a game I wanted to play or not. After playing it through most of the weekend I can safely say: yes, I love the game. And yes, I bought it and all the DLCs. 🙂

[FGO] Cruising through the Seventh Singularity

I rarely do longer posts about what games I am playing because I have a hard time figuring out how to talk about it in a way that seems interesting. Even more so when I am going through a grinding phase in a MMORPG or trying to get trophies in a game. Or just jumping through different games trying to find one that piques my interest.

But for the sake of variety and not leaving this blog gathering dust for such long periods of time I am going to try to write these kind of posts more.

So, to begin with let me talk what I have been up to in Fate Grand Order…

[VtMB] More Downtown Sidequests

The truck that Fat Larry hangs around

Last time on Vampire: the Masquerade Bloodlines… we end up destroying some vampires involved in a crazy cult in order to protect the Masquerade. Well, we also did it to get some brownie points with the anarchs and score a reward from Strauss.

This time we’ll finish the sidequests in Downtown before we go do another job for fancy pants Lacroix.

SPOILER WARNING! Don’t read beyond this point if you care about spoilers. If you don’t or already has played this game then just go ahead.

[VtMB] The Plaguebringers

Last time on Vampire: the Masquerade Bloodlines… We went on a bit of a boat trip for the Prince. Also we found out that I am apparently pretty bad at stealth. Oh, and we got our own ghoul too.

Now it is time to see what else Downtown has to offer.

SPOILER WARNING: Don’t read beyond this point if you don’t want to be spoiled about the story of the game. But if you don’t care or have already played it then go ahead!

[VtMB] Vampire on a boat!

Last time on Vampire the Masquerade – Bloodlines: we finally completed our main goal in Santa Monica, almost got killed (again) and met the local anarchies.

This time we’ll see what is the job the Prince has for us.

SPOILER WARNING: spoilers ahead for the story of this game. Proceed only if this doesn’t bother or you already finished this game. Or some other motivation that I can’t imagine right now.

[VtMB] Exploding warehouses and meeting anarchies

Crazy street preacher with a "The End Is Here" sign

Last time on Vampire: the Masquerade – Bloodlines: we finished what was left of the side quests in Santa Monica. We stole some blood, started an investigation on a Masquerade breach, helped out a very excitable ghoul and even went gave a hand (pun completely intended) with a investigation for a bail bonds office. Now we shall go back to the main story!

SPOILER WARNING: spoilers ahead for the story of this game. Proceed only if this doesn’t bother or you already finished this game. Or some other motivation that I can’t imagine right now.

[VtMB] Side questing in Santa Monica, Part 1

The blood clinic attendant assuming that we came here to draw blood

Last time on Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines… We had to go through a lot of hoops to get to our goal. For instance: deal with a haunted house, destroy artwork, get shot at by some mooks and even discovering some deep family secrets we had absolutely no business finding out.

Before we continue on with the main story though I decided to do some side quests. There are two reasons for it 1) They are pretty entertaining and 2) Good rewards.

So that is what we’ll be doing in this and the next post.

SPOILER WARNING! Spoilers for some of the side stories of Vampire: the Masquerade – Bloodlines ahead! Read it at your own risk!

[VtMB] Into the Asylum

Last time in this series we learned how vampires are born, how they survive in the modern nights and dealt with some drug dealers. The last one is just so it wasn’t all about vampires. Well, not directly anyway.

This time we get back to dealing with some spooky things and some not-so spooky ones.

SPOILER WARNING: this post will spoil most of the story for the  first chapter of this game.

[VtMB] It is one of those nights….

Rosa telling us where to find some drug dealers we'll need to kill in a bit

Vampire: the Masquerade – Bloodlines (VtMB, for short from this point forward) probably has one of the best introductions/tutorials in game. It sets the mood right, teaches what you need to know and even hints at some of the things you will have to deal later in the game.

In this post we’ll go through that. I don’t think my writing will live up to the actual cutscenes but I will try my best. I will add in the first mission of the game too just so it doesn’t end up a giant wall of text describing concepts of the game.

Oh, and in case you missed, here is my introduction post for this game and Let’s Play.

WARNING: Spoilers for the game ahead
