February was another month where weirdly enough it felt like it lasted almost forever. Honestly, I would be fine if the rest of the year felt like this. It is certainly better than the last few years where it felt like I just blinked and the month was over.
As for the games, not as many variety as I wished for but not that bad either. So let’s get to them!
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
For a while I’ve been meaning to write about Conqueror, a mod for Fallout 4 that let’s you play as a raider and take over settlements through force. But due to certain issues I am only getting to do it now. I will get to those near the end of this post.
First you might wondering “Isn’t playing a raider what the Nuka-World DLC allows you to do? How is this different?”. On the surface, it isn’t. In practice though Conqueror has a lot more depth and challenge. It also has the option to play as a Liberator (through add-ons) and unite the commonwealth if you don’t like much the idea of playing as a raider.
Disclaimer: I haven’t finished the current questline for Conqueror yet nor have gone too far with adding settlements to my raider empire. So treat this more as a first impressions than some actual review of the mod.
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!
