I gotta say I am glad that I have so many things I want to play and progress in. There isn’t much worse than not having something to waste all your time playing. Though I will say that having too many things can also be kind of annoying, for me at least. Just gotta remember to fuckin think about it, take it slow, don’t change up too much because then I’ll feel like I didn’t really get anywhere even though I played shit all weekend.
I almost played some Diablo 3 this weekend but I didn’t. I got into some Xcom 2 WotC which is pretty cool. I had to download the mod that make Lost target you and advent 50/50, as the default is set to lean against your favor 70/30. I found that out the hard way when one of my dudes was wrapped up by a snake and two fuckin lost walk right up to him and kill him instead of the fuckin snake wrapped around his whole goddamn body. I haven’t played it in a day or two but I like to imagine that I’ll get around to beating it.
I had been rewatching Deep Space 9 on monitor 2 last week instead of some Twitch thing. Apparently the last time I watched DS9 I was motivated to play Space Engineers, because after getting a season or two into it I had this strange urge to install that game. I noticed they have an actual singleplayer “story” campaign mode or whatever now, but, meh, wasn’t in the mood to try that. Picked my old trusty favorite, Lone Survivor, where you’re just one dude on an abandoned mining platform attached to an asteroid, just floating out there all alone. I managed to find most resources spacesuiting to nearby asteroids and built myself some defensive walls for any meteor storms as well as some turrets, with the intent of shooting the asteroids before they break my shit.
Instead what happened is the fucking pirates apparently now make little remote control drones with turrets on them and send them to come get me and snipe my fuckin turrets before my turrets can fight back. Luckily they could never take down all of my turrets before getting in range of another one. But still, it became quite the annoying chore fixing my turrets while I’m trying to fuckin build a mining spaceship. Which I ended up doing, used it a lil bit and promptly closed the game because what the fuck am I even doing.
Got some more PUBG in which felt good. Didn’t get any wins but I did get a few top 10s, including my first game back, so I felt alright about that considering I hadn’t played it in like a week. Still wish there were fucking stats for FPP (not to mention MMR for matchmaking FPP). I feel like I’m getting better at having more than one kill each game. Of course I don’t know if that is because there is no MMR or not. But I can still win some of the bigger landing areas without being a butt so I guess maybe that means I’m okay? If you’re curious about what being a butt means it is when I wait somewhere outside of the big landing area for the “winner” to come out thinking he already killed everyone and is totally safe only to fall to me being a bitch.
Finally I went back into some SWG yesterday pretty hardcore. Multiple instances at the same time OMG what a madman. I busted out my crafter guy after reading some of my old SWG posts where I was naming my characters and pretending they had little stories and shit. The first thing I looked for was some high Heat Resistant, Shock Resistant, Unit Toughness steel. Because those 3 stats affect extraction rate while crafting harvesters and a good steel can cover most of the mineral requirements for most harvesters. Then Ace of Bass’s song “I saw the sign” started playing because what do ya know, a new server best for steel used in harvesters had just recently spawned. It was like every moment in my life had led to this moment, I mean, partly because it did, but also because, it did. So I bought some Fusion harvesters to get some power and some mining installations because moar plz. Found a good spot and put everything down, paid shit and farmed power to get them going for a while so I can ignore them. After a night of afk sampling the good stuff I set out to find a lesser steel for grinding some swoops so I can get Novice Architect.
On my punchy fightin guy I finished the Imperial Themepark and am now 1 step away from glowing with the force. Off to the Warren to get the apparently 2 Themepark badges for that. But, shit, I was using my Flamethrower which sucks and I’m actually still leveling up so it was pretty weak and I kinda died. So I put the Vibro Knuckler back on, got more buffs, flew back out there and started punchin them fucks in their faces, only to freeze in the same fight I died to last time. FFFUUUUU. Turns out the server deadlocked and I wouldn’t be able to play anymore that night. But I logged back in this morning and apparently there was a little rollback as my toon is back in the cantina he was in before going to the Warren.
So I’ve got all that shit goin on and still think about pushing for GR70 on my Barb, especially before the fucking season is over!! Sure I already unlocked Primal Ancients on my PS4 Barb but PC MASTER RACE makes me feel kind of bad about that, especially since a lot of skills aren’t really good on PS4 since you can’t click exactly where you want to go. But who knows if this will ever happen. If I miss the season then I guess I’ll just do it out of season, I was already working on my first Barb from launch and I think he was in an okay position, while also having a fucking Skull Grasp (300% WW damage ring that you cube that is pretty hard to get sometimes and is currently the thing I need).
Not to mention a desire to play Rimworld, Warband, Subnautica, The Forest, shit even Skyrim and sometimes Morrowind, AND this game Sheltered that I bought and haven’t played yet. Ahhh, old me wouldn’t believe how lucky I am to have so many games I want to play and so much time to play them, though not quite enough time to play them all.
