One of the games me and my sister still play periodically every couple of years or so on our old PS2 is "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King", which mind bogglingly (to me anyway) is almost sixteen years old. 

Last time we played we completed a new story and then the Palantir of Saurman, so this time around we've just been visiting random places, leveling up Faramir, and desperately trying to complete the Palantir of Sauron.  I think we're almost at the point that we're willing to use cheat codes. 


Still a really fun game.

FFXIV. The grind to get all my classes levelled up before Shadowbringers comes out is gonna be tough, but I'm determined to get them all to lvl70 by then so I'll have viable DPS, tanks and healers for all the new content. Oh, and crafters. Gotta be able to make new gear, too. That and I gotta keep on top of weekly runs of Orbonne Monastery to get my current SMN gear augmented.


So much to do, yet so little time.

Dark Souls III.

I’ve been able to get in a handful of short sessions, but my minimal time with the game and the brief amount of re-familiarization I need with the game each time I play another session (which in times past would not be an issue, but is now due to the longer periods of time between play) have made progress slow. I am about to enter the Cathedral of the Deep, but this replay has reminded me again how much I dislike the run from the Cleansing Chapel bonfire to the first shortcut from the Cathedral to the Chapel. This segment of the game proved to be one of the more difficult sections of the game for me on my first run through the game, and it is proving to be just as difficult this time around. It’s a long run before gaining access to a bonfire, and the area is littered with a lot of enemies. On their own, the enemies aren’t much of a problem, but they tend to be in groups, which makes them harder to deal with.

Another difficulty I’ve encountered is the build I settled on. I’m all three games, my first successful run was made with dexterity-focused characters, with a little stat investment to also allow for some pyromancy. This particular style of play has proved versatile and most effective for my play style. This time around, I decided to go for something a little more challenging and outside my comfort zone: a strength/faith build. Up until now, it hasn’t been much of an issue. In fact, I was doing pretty well. However, I just switched to a greatsword (which I intended from the beginning to be my primary melee weapon in this run), and the adjustment has been... challenging. The speed is less of an issue than I expected—it’s only a hair slower than the weapon I was using before—but the stamina consumption is an adjustment. Which has led to an issue I worried about: stat allocation.

I knew I wanted some investment into strength and faith because those were obviously the most important stats for a strength/faith build. The problem, however, is that, as I usually do in these games, I tried to spread my stats too much too early instead of focusing in one area until I was super effective and then filling in the other areas I needed. This has left me less effective than I would like, and I have a feeling it’s going to make the next bit of the run a little more difficult than it needed to be. Thankfully, I am close to the NPC that allows me to respec, so I fully intend to take advantage of that.

I finished LEGO The Hobbit a few days ago. This game shared many of the same features as Lego Lord of the Rings, but also expands greatly on that by introducing a "loot" system of various materials (to collect alongside studs) to spend to complete certain tasks, and making the forging of special mythril items into a minigame. One point of irritation for me was that much of the hub world exploration involved needing to complete certain quests in order to gain access to certain other quests, which forced me to frequently travel back and forth across all of Middle Earth rather than just slowly progress from one side to the other (not to mention, prevented me from immediately obtaining certain red bricks). Even with the obviously incomplete story, the structure and unique systems made this a rather good game, which I'd rank just above Lego Lord of the Rings.


Next game for me; LEGO Marvel Super Heroes


Now that I'm moving on to a franchise that I find much more interesting, I'm definitely looking forward to see all this game has to offer beyond the story content (which again, I've already seen, thanks to Twitch Tuesday). That hub world covering much of New York City appears to be quite massive, so hopefully I won't find it too overwhelming.

I fell back into the rabbit hole that is Skyrim. These days if you look online it's easy to think it's more meme than game, but I only ever played the vanilla version, but now I'm replaying it with all the DLC and a whole lot of mods. It's definitely flawed and pretty shallow, but it's fun and entertaining nonetheless.

The last game I completed was Undertale, once I'd finally gotten around to it.

Since then I've been going back-and-forth between Elsword, Path of Exile and Hob.

These days I mostly just play Duel Links... but! I also have a run of Star Wars Knights of the old republic going on. And it's fun, playing sorta dark side, but not quite, because I am not that evil. But the morality makes a bit more sense than in... idk, Fable. xD It's fun, though.

I finished LEGO Marvel Super Heroes a few days ago. I enjoyed the unique storyline featured in this game, as well as the bonus levels and exploring the hub area of Manhattan. I also liked many of the characters (especially big figs like Hulk), and even got some good laughs out of the various "crazy situations" to rescue Stan Lee from peril. Notably difficult about this game was completing the races (especially the ones that involve flying around) in the hub area, but I was able to figure them out remarkably quickly. Overall, I really liked this game quite a lot, enough that I'm now willing to rank it my second favorite (behind only the Lego Movie Videogame).


Next game for me; LEGO Batman 3 - Beyond Gotham


This is of course another game where I'm already familiar with the story content thanks to Twitch Tuesday (in fact, this was the very first game that was ever played on Twitch Tuesdays). Even though I probably won't be as thrilled with this game as I was for Marvel Super Heroes, I have a feeling that I'll still be able to enjoy this one.

currently playing baldur's gate: enhanced edition, as one of my periodic attempts to make myself like crpgs. there have been specific ones i've liked in the past - planescape: torment, which uses the same d&d 2.5 ruleset as baldur's gate and is built in the same game engine; as well as fallouts 1 and 2, both by planescape developer black isle - but the broader genre is something i've bounced off of.


part of the problem is that i'm just not particularly smart, and i have neither the patience nor the desire to pore over the rulesets or come up with optimal builds.


honestly i'm mostly killing time waiting for the halo: the master chief collection pc release

Mortal Kombat 11

Game's story was great, and I like the customization, but the game feels like a slight backwarding from MK10. Where is Takeda dude? and Kronika's design lacks inspiration given her stature in the pantheon.


Crusader Kings 2

My go-to game if you have frequented the topic long enough. With the release of Holy Fury, Great Works, and Iron Century (those last two content add-ons being free) there has been a lot of new stuff to try out. Created the HRE as Otto Liudolfinger "the Great", but as the realm historically was nto called the Holy Roman Empire at this time i decided to go with a German spelling for Roman empire, Romisches Reich (I was blessed that sweet sweet Translatio Imperii by the Papacy, yum). Umayyad Caliphate of Andalusian Cordoba enslaved the Christian resistance in Spania and invaded Aquitaine, and the Pope called for a crusade over a century earlier than our time-line to liberate Aquitaine. I partook in the liberation and my son Liudolf Liudolfinger was awarded being a duke.


Decades later after squabbling with heretical kings and vikings, a new Crusade was called for to liberate the enslaved Christians of Egypt (who their lot had not yet been entirely economically draiend by the sharia humiliation tax and not been forced to choose between death or islamic conversion). I partook in that, Otto now being in his 70's and owner of a lush beard. while this was happening, Liudolf had his titles robbed by a greedy Occitanian King (who by now had expanded his realm by liberating Catalonia), who became paranoid after being humbled by conquering invasion of Gaul by heathen Denmark and an opportunistic Venice, so now exiled and titleless, Liudolf became my benefactor for my deeds in the Nile. Otto's Romisches Reich ended up being the primary polity to aid in the endeavor, so Liudolf Liudolfinger became King of the Crusader State of Egypt, effectively making him a German Pharaoh. We shall see if our catholic Liudolf will be as schismatic about religion as Roman Emperor Heraclius was, whose caesaropapism was so tyrannical that the Coptic Egyptians invited the Rashidun Caliphate to conquer them, ensuring the enslavement of their poor countrymen and their very own descendants when funds eventually ran dry). Now I am presently given the choice to continue playing as Otto "the Benelovent" or as Liudolf "the Holy".


Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Playing in the Holy Roman Empire in CK2 made me have an itching to try out Kingdom Come: Deliverance once more. Last time I played it I got distracted with other video games and never got back to it. I am restarting from the beginning so as to prevent psychological disenchantment, which is a crime in of itself as the game's atmosphere is indeed enchanting. if you ahve patience i reccomend this game to any who like open-world RPGs (like Elder Scrolls), just don't expect magical stuff. Oh, and God bless Father Godwin, the best parish priest of all the land, man is a legend, lmao.

Zelda Breath of The Wild. Haven’t even gotten to the bulk of the story. I’m loving it.
