Nov ’17 Gaming Goals Review

Nov ’17 Gaming Goals Review

Last month I started back up with my gaming goals, in an effort to give myself some goals to get myself blogging again. So let’s take a look at how I did with them, shall we?

She’s sad that there was so little time to game as of late.

The Goals

I lacked time to game throughout November and December. Real life sort of ends up getting in the way at the end of the year. It’s something I’ll have to take into account for next year. Or try to remember to take into account. I always remember about it in hindsight!

World of Warcraft

There are a few achievements that I didn’t even begin to touch, such as “Well Read” and “Turkey Lurkey”. I worked on leveling my Death Knight towards “Quintessential Quintet”, though only got her about six or seven levels. Same with leveling my dwarf towards “Double Agent”. I did complete “Friend or Fowl?” because it was an easy two minute achievement.

I surprisingly ended up completing “Raiding with Leashes”, mainly because I didn’t need many pets to finish, and RNG was on my side. I haven’t been so lucky with “Raiding with Leashes II”, yet. I only grabbed myself a Menagerie Custodian, but I’ve been getting lots of Wolves and Custodians since, while trying to grab the Imp and Abyssal. No luck on any drops in SSC or TK.

Secret World Legends

I ended up rolling up my dragon for my new Let’s Play YouTube videos, and I’ve been playing a bit of her, trying to build up some back log of videos. I’ve never played a Dragon before, and have been having some fun. So, I achieved and even surpassed my goal of just rolling her up.

I also rolled up a RP toon to try to get into RP for the first time in a very long time (in MMOs, anyway). Sadly, I haven’t had much time to play her, but I’m hoping to rectify that a bit in the coming week so I can spend time gaming with folks, as well. I’m excited to get into her, though. I’ve a bit of a story concocted, but I need to spend a bit of time writing it up and putting it into the SWLRP mod.

Other

I ended up not touching my otomes at all, but I’m hoping to do a bit of that this coming week as well. I’ll be laying out some new goals to just finish out the month of December, and then starting fresh in January with a longer, updated, list.

Starting Back Up

This post is a part of #IntPiPoMo 2017. You can find more information and sign up for participate here.

I used to do a thing where I put together gaming goals every month. And then I fell off the blogging and gaming bandwagon for a good while. These gaming goals help keep me from floundering around in gaming, and focus my limited free time so I just don’t sit there and scroll through Facebook.

The Goals 

She’s totally sure they’ll all get done…

Without further ado, here’s my gaming goals checklist.

World of Warcraft

  • “Well Read” achievement 
  • “Friend or Fowl?” achievement 
  • Level a fourth 110 (towards “Quintessential Quintet” achievement) 
  • “Double Agent” achievement
  • “Raiding with Leashes” achievement (Giant Bone Spider, Stitched Pup, Viscidus Globule) 
  • “Raiding with Leashes II” achievement (Netherspace Abyssal, Tideskipper, Coilfang Stalker, Lesser Voidcaller, Menagerie Custodian, Fiendish Imp, Tainted Waveling, Pocket Reaver, Phoenix Hawk Hatchling) 
  • “Turkey Lurkey” achievement 

Secret World Legends 

  • Roll up my Dragon for my new LP YouTube videos

Did I mention it’s #VNNovember for the Community Game-Along challenge? That works out well, considering I want to try to get through the five million dating sims I’ve going at the same time (I’m currently playing Norn9, Sweet Fuse, Period Cube, Men of Yoshiwara: Ohgiya, Dream Daddy, Pub Encounter, and Seduce Me 2).

  • Finish Mitarashi’s route in Sweet Fuse 
  • Start Urabe’s route in Sweet Fuse 
  • Finish Takigawa’s Happy and Super Happy routes in Men of Yoshiwara: Ohgiya
#IntPiPoMo Count: 13/50

Just like last year, January was #DatingSiMonth. This is a part of the Community Game-Along that Chic-Pixel has put on for the past four years! I sort of participated throughout the year last year, but got sidetracked by real life. This year, I’m hoping to be able to participate more. And starting up in January with Dating Sims always gets me in the mood to continue. Because, really, how can you go wrong with Dating Sims, right?

I ended up playing a combination of Sweet Fuse, Seduce Me 2, and Men of Yoshiwara: Ohgiya throughout the month. I totaled only six hours of Dating Sims, but compared to the amount of time I’ve spent gaming and how my time has been alloted, I don’t think that’s too shabby.

Seduce Me Stream


As a part of #DatingSiMonth, I decided to put together a stream on a whim, especially since I wanted to see if streaming was something I’d be interested in doing if I got enough Patreon support to reach my goal. I had a lot of fun doing it, but it’s definitely something that’s draining, and not something I could do consistently without some sort of motivation.

I played two hours worth of Matthew’s route in Seduce Me 2: The Demon War. I plan to continue streaming this route, at least in February. I had initially decided February was going to be the first time I’d stream, but then put one together in January just because.

Initially I chose February for a plethora of reasons: Valentine’s Day means it’s fun to play Dating Sims (not that I ever need an excuse!), and mainly I needed a distraction around the 13th of February for some personal reasons. I figured if I was joking with friends and having fun being raunchy about pixelated men, it’d be a fantastic distraction!

So, if you’re interested in watching me play more of Matthew’s route, join me on my Twitch channel in February! No guarantees about future streams unless Patreon works out, but keep an eye on my twitter for last minute streams when I feel like it.

October Goals Review

October Goals Review

This post is a part of #IntPiPoMo 2016. You can find more information and sign up to participate here.

I cut down on my gaming goals list fairly extensively for October.

Feyd, Ender, and Try helped me get attuned for Kara, too!

  • Re-rune DPS set
  • Buy new unlocked tank gear
  • Re-rune tank set

  • Make plans for guild/alliance Shade’s Eve Shindig (Never did.)
  • Put up the last Yardcore I recorded ages ago
WoW
  • Complete the Stormheim storylines
  • Unlock Suramar world quests
  • Get Archaeology to 100

Thoughts

Life has been hectic in ways that I didn’t even plan for it to be, both emotionally and with work. I still got a decent amount of things finished, all things considered, though.

WildStar stuff that isn’t related to the community-at-large, or Wildcast (which I suppose is the community-at-large) have taken a bit of a wayside to everything else. Not that it’s a bad thing, but I do feel kind of bad about it. I’ve been doing a lot of stuff related to WildStar, just most of it outside of the game, which is a weird contrast.

I finally finished out Stormheim, which I think is my least favorite out of all the zones in the Broken Isles. Which stinks, even as a Warrior. I think that might be why it was my least favorite. That you’ve done all this Warrior stuff, and it doesn’t seem to mesh with Stormheim well. I’ve been trying to work my way through more of Suramar, and have slowly gotten through it (I think I hate it more than Stormheim), so I’ve unlocked more quests, but I really need to just finish the stupid zone.

I got farther in professions than I thought I would. I’m stuck at 765 Blacksmithing, and all of my patterns are grey. So that stinks. Archaeology feels more grindy than I remember, granted, I never got it very high on Chestnut, so that’s something to aim towards on Naught. Fishing is something I’ve been doing to kill time, plus I really want the Legendary fishing pole! First aid is getting there, slowly. I’m hoping as I get a higher level skill that my bandages will heal for more. I’ve hit a rut in mining, as well. Both of my Leystone and Felstone nodes are stuck at 1 star, despite lots of farming for the quest items. I really love professions, but WoW has really screwed the pooch with them, this expansion.

As for my otomes, I haven’t really gotten much done in either of them with work. I usually play them on my lunch breaks, but October didn’t leave me with many of those that weren’t thirty minute “hurry up and eat” breaks.

Thoughts

I tried, and got close!

Okay, so maybe some of my goals were a bit lofty with everything going on in real life.

I did get Protobucks in WildStar..,. but then I spent them on the Corgi and Fox Hoverboard combo-pack instead of Service Tokens. I mean, how can you pass up a baby Corgi named Leeloo?! Because I didn’t get Service Tokens, I didn’t re-rune my DPS set, so the new pieces are still sitting in my bag, waiting to be runed.

I didn’t even purchase my tank set, let alone re-rune it, which is something I’m going to need to do soon, as we’ve hit the roster boss with school back in session, and I’ve been playing OT more to help out in GA.

My goal today is to finish the podcast and get it over to Avid. Woops! And I’ll get to Yardcore when I get to Yardcore. I think I’ll leave it as a running item until it’s done.

I’ve been trying to catch up in WoW doing various things, but I’ve mainly been pulled into chain-running Mythics with guildies, so a lot of the goals I had have been sitting by the wayside. I’ve been trying to level fishing mainly to get the Artifact fishing pole for the water walking and the fish form to get around easier, since I don’t (yet) have a water strider.

There’s so much I want to do in WoW to catch up to where I need/want to be for raid, and then so much other stuff that I just want to finish, that it’s almost a bit overwhelming. I do plan to run at least one Mythic+2 (maybe we’ll try the +3?) today, but I’d really like to just work on professions in between the massive amount of chores, and working on Wildcast. And this coming week I’d really just like to go farm achievements in Pandaria for mounts. I might see if Feyd wants to come along for mount collecting, too, since he dragged me through a few places to try to get drops earlier this week.

As for my otomes… I’ve played a little bit more of Asagiri’s route, and I’m enjoying it, but I’m having a hell of a time trying to get into Norn9. I think I just chose a bad combination of protag (there’s three to choose from) and the love interest (the one I wanted is not unlocked, because I need to finish the other two associated with the protag first…). So I’m going to buy Sweet Fuse since it’s been on my list to buy, it’s fairly cheap, and Rissa has been trying to get me to play it since they found out I liked otomes and I have a Vita. Overall, though, not too bad with everything going on irl.

September Gaming Goals

September Gaming Goals

I’ve kind of fallen off the gaming goals as I had originally intended them for many reasons. So I’m just going to continue them as a to do list for the remainder of the year as a way to keep myself focused on what I’d like to accomplish in the games I’m digging at the moment.

Ready to tackle goals in style!

Quick August Review

WildStar

WoW

  • Level mining on the Naught (hopefully hit 700, but we’ll see how far I get…)
  • Level cooking on the Naught (again, hopefully 700)
  • Level first aid on the Naught (see above)
  • Level fishing on the Naught (see above)
  • Do a few invasions on the Nut for some gear for her

I did get quite a few levels and profession stuff done on my various WoW toons, but not enough to check off goals. I still feel fairly accomplished, though, especially with WildStar goals.

Gaming Goals: May

Gaming Goals: May

I started these Gaming Goals posts back in June 2015 as a way to try to organize my gaming time around freelance obligations as well as my day-job and general life obligations. You can view the archive of goals and reviews here.

Richard expects me to do well this month.

I meant well in March, and then never made goals because real life got extremely overwhelming. May is kind of in-between overwhelming and lots of free-time at the moment. My weekends are fairly free (minus D&D), but my weeks are really busy. So I’m going to try to take it light on goals–especially because ThaydFest is a thing this month. The Secret World also might slow down some because one of our four-person-team is going to be gone most of May, and then Chaide is going to be gone most of June. But at least that gives me time to catch up on the videos.

Image by Chic-Pixel

The Community Game-Along this month is Metroidvania games. So I had planned at the start of the year to get in some Dust: An Elysian Tale. And I’m still going to try to do so, which might reduce some of my other goals. Too bad every month can’t be dating simmonth!

WildStar

  • Finish Celestion achievements (on Chestnut)
  • Start Galeras achievements (including normal STL and normal Hycrest)
  • Upload completed Yardcore 10
  • Put on ThaydFest without stressing!

Final Fantasy XIV

  • FSH 30
  • BTN 22
  • MIN 22
  • CUL 10

The Secret World

  • Start Transylvania

Steam, etc.

  • Finish one route in Men of Yoshiwara: Ohgiya
  • Play some Dust: An Elysian Tale
  • Finish the introduction in Norn9: Var Commons
Gaming Goals Review: March & April

Gaming Goals Review: March & April

I started this back in June 2015, and have been keeping up with it this past month. I’ve kept reducing my goals due to real life, and I think I hit a stride heading into December, and have kept it up for the most part. Well, except maybe on the blogging end and the goals posts the past two months!

Comparison Time!

WildStar

  • Finish Celestion achievements (on Chestnut)
  • Get Bauxyte her key and at least one dungeon towards attunement
  • Upload completed Yardcore 10
  • Choose which toon will be next to 50

Final Fantasy XIV

  • WAR 50 Completed!
  • FSH 30
  • BTN 30
  • MIN 30
  • Start working on crafting professions to clean out retainers (max of level 15) Started!

The Secret World

  • Finish and upload Let’s Play 4 and 5
  • Finish Saiid’s missions Completed!

Steam, etc.

  • Finish Men of Yoshiwara Completed!
  • Finish all of Impey’s endings (including GCs and video) in Code Realize Completed!
  • Start Victor’s route in Code Realize Completed!
  • Start Amnesia: Memories (suggestions on the card suit to pursue first are welcome!) Changed game.
I ended up completing quite a few goals, though mostly outside of MMOs. Real life was busy again. Actually, it doesn’t ever seem to slow down, any. Granted, it should be a tad bit slower this month compared to the past few.

Comparison: February and March

  • 1 hour less of WildStar… so comparable hours
  • 1 hour less of Final Fantasy–again, comparable
  • 1 hour less of The Secret World–I’m sensing a pattern here
  • Added 2 hours of Men of Yoshiwara
  • Added 23 hours of Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~
  • No Blade & Soul (down 2 hours)
  • No Black Desert Online (down 3 hours)
  • Added 15 hours of Stardew Valley
  • 77 total hours in Feburary
  • 110 total hours in March
  • Overall up 33 hours in March–I blame this on Stardew Valley and Code: Realize

Comparison: March and April

  • 9 hours less of WildStar
  • Added 2 hours of Final Fantasy
  • Added 11 hours of The Secret World
  • No Men of Yoshiwara (down 8 hours–completed in March)
  • 17 hours less of Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~
  • No Stardew Valley (down 15 hours)
  • Added 3 hours of Atlas Reactor (beta)
  • 110 total hours in March
  • 77 total hours in April
  • Overall down 33 hours in April–I know this is due to project deadlines at work and IRL events

Overall Thoughts

Chaide and I finished the base-game story!!!

So I didn’t get very much done in WildStar. Partially was just real life, and partially was just I’ve been working on ThaydFest stuff non-stop. I’ll probably adjust my goals there knowing that ThaydFest won’t be over until end of May.

We finally got our main classes to level 50 in FFXIV, and we’ve been working past the 2.0 story very slowly. We’re currently about halfway through the “A Realm Awoken” patch. We’re currently stuck on the “Rock-solid Protection” quest, (1) because of time and (2) we can’t figure out if we need normal or… hard mode? I think it’s called hard mode. And needing normal makes no sense since it’s a level 45 dungeon. So if you have thoughts, let me know. I almost got my gathering professions up, so I might continue those goals. My play time has decreased there overall, so I’m not sure adding a new class to level would be wise. Maybe I’ll think about how much story we can feasibly get through this month and use that as a goal instead.

We’re almost into Transylvania in The Secret World, but I just haven’t had much time outside of work to work on the videos without also cutting into my gaming time, or time spent with Chaide in general.

My other gaming goals were fairly easy, honestly. I was a terrible person and left Men of Yoshiwara: Kikuya minimized during raids and pulled it up whenever I was dead. Honestly, it’s what keeps me so jovial during raids, because I hate dying. And Code: Realize was easy, because I play that for an hour every day at work during lunch. Plus, if I carry my Vita with me everywhere, so if I’m waiting in line or something, it’s easy enough to pop out and play some. I’m at the point where I’m almost done with Lupin’s route, and I’m sad to see the game end! But more thoughts on that another time. I decided that instead of playing Amnesia first, I’m going to be playing the new Men of Yoshiwara that just came out a few weeks ago. I got it day-of because it was on sale, but I was up in the air on which otome to try next, until Sushi told me about how one of the routes is right up my alley (I love the sweet romance/childhood friend routes), so now I have to try it first.

I also picked up Stardew Valley and Atlas Reactor these past two months. Stardew Valley is lots of fun, but it’s something that I can only really handle in small doses. I just get bored with it after a few hours, and need to put it down. Plus I stink at the whole relationship building thing, and after a while I start to feel overwhelmed at all the things to do and that I want to do and… yeah.

Atlas Reactor is one that I was lucky enough to get a beta code, and I have lots to write about it, but I’ve not had much time to get in there and play around with it more to solidify the thoughts and guides I want to write. Overall, I love it because it’s more thought- and strategy-based than MOBAs in general. Or at least from my limited MOBA experiences. I’ve tried HotS and LoL, but neither caught my fancy. I don’t like the way it works, and it’s super confusing, whereas I caught onto Atlas Reactor really quickly, and it almost feels like a team-based game of chess.

Thank you to the wonderful Ammo for the beautiful ThaydFest banner donation!

The month of May is going to be taken up mainly by ThaydFest, so I don’t know that I’ll have a lot of goals for May, but June will have countless hours to fill in, because Chaide is going to be teaching in Africa for two and a half weeks straight… so I’ll have lots of time to game (and be sad) and put together Let’s Plays.

Creative Blogger Award

Creative Blogger Award

Way back in February, the amazing Pizza Maid nominated me for the Creative Blogger Award. I had a draft post half written once I noticed it in early March (d’oh! I’m so bad at my feed reader sometimes!), but then forgot about it when work ramped up, and here we are!

Pizza is someone that I happened to meet thanks to the ever-present #BelEffect, and we kind of hit it off with our shared love of Sailor Moon. She has since introduced me to the rabbit hole that is the world of Otome, and here we are, chatting daily on Twitter about whatever floats our boat. She’s a wonderful person, and if you enjoy RP, anime, otome, and Final Fantasy XIV, she’s a great blogger to follow!!

So, what are the rules? I mean, all of these awards have rules, no?

  • Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog. 
  • Share 5 facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 15 – 20 bloggers and add their links.
  • Notify the bloggers you included. 
  • Keep the rules in your post to make it easy for everyone to know what to do!
I dislike the “nominate double-digit people” thing, so I’m just going to casually nominate five folks at the end of this so this is more of a slow trickle effect rather than a waterfall. I really liked how Pizza answered the facts portion, and I hope to do some of the same, rather than just some random bullet points and calling it a day.

Fact 1: Repeat Recipient

I apparently got the creative blogger award last year, in April. At that time I was nominated by Murf. I find it extremely interesting how things find their way around the internet, and come full circle. I wonder if this nomination is still a go-around of the one I received last year, or when it first started, or if folks have just re-started it up because they could. Regardless, being nominated for these things is fun, and it helps to build community, and I love it.

Fact 2: Blog Move Imminent

So, surprise! This past February, marked six years of intermittent blogging. At some point, I dropped the blog for about a year or two (I can’t find the list of posts per month since starting that I had made…), but picked it up back in earnest in February of 2015 thanks to the ever-present #BelEffect (no, seriously). I had planned to move the blog to a self-hosted WordPress back in February, but finances didn’t quite line up the way I had intended. I was going to use it as a way to clean up my labels and categories and the like. I still plan on doing this, hopefully sometime next month when finances settle a little bit for a few months.

Fact 3: I Hate Moving

I do. Chaide got a new job at a better school, which is awesome, but means we’ll have to move again this summer. I’m so over moving. I hate moving. Not only because of all the packing and unpacking (which sucks) but because it also triggers my anxiety a bunch–all those things that have to be done, and the timelines that need to be followed… Which normally I’m fine with, but the fact that I have to settle into a new place… again… never feels good. It takes me months to feel “at home” after moving, and I was just starting to adjust to the apartment we moved into last summer. Ah well. At least wherever we move to next will be home for at least two years so we can save for a house…

Fact 4: I Really Love Visual Novels and Otome

I’d always been intrigued by Visual Novels, especially after a friend gifted Chaide Analogue: A Hate Story a few years ago. But I’d always heard that they were “casual” and “not actually games” and the like. So I held off from them. It wasn’t until I met Pizza and her friend Sushi, and played Hatoful Boyfriend thanks to Grace that I really decided it was a genre I wanted to explore more in-depth, and that the negative connotations associated with it were a load of crap. Granted, there are eroge and bishojo games that are still something I’m not too keen on pursuing–mainly because they usually lack story and are just fanservice. Maybe one day I’ll explore them a bit more… but I’ll need to get through a large backlog of VNs first!

Fact 5: The #BelEffect Helped Change My Life

Image from Tales of the Aggronaut

No, seriously. I’m not being facetious, or silly, or anything of the like. Things were going really crappily in WildStar at the time. I was the most depressed I had been in my life, and my anxiety was just as bad. I’d started therapy about six months prior, and it was starting to help, but shit hit the fan in my gaming world–which I was using as an escape from the shit going on in my real life. And I just couldn’t handle it anymore. I was contemplating leaving a hobby that I greatly enjoyed, and friends that I cherished because I didn’t know how to reconcile the two to relieve my anxiety and depression.

So I put out a call on Twitter, saying I needed a new home in FFXIV while I figured things out in WildStar. Bel answered that call, inviting me over to play on Cactuar with all of his friends, and I found myself in a circle of amazing people that he’s befriended, and some that Chaide and I have had the pleasure of befriending and hanging out with while we casually game our way through life. Having them as a sounding board and support system has been amazing, and I appreciate them so very much

The Nominations

Folks don’t need to feel pressured into doing this, but it’s something fun to do if they like!
