DOOM Collector’s Edition

Just so you guys know, I don’t keep all my games for myself. I actually buy things for my husband once in awhile… LOL

When we came back from vacation on Monday, a box was waiting for us.

I haven’t played it, but my husband loves it. One of these days, I’ll get around to setting up family sharing on our Steam accounts and I’ll try it out. 🙂

In FFXIV news, I’m trying to learn how to play DRK. I’m currently level 51 and am having a difficult time remembering Darkside. Like I forget to use it or I forget to turn it off. All the guides on playing DRK assume that you’re level 60, which is frustrating. I’ll get it eventually.

I’m back to my regular streaming schedule, for the most part. I was so tickled that even though I didn’t stream for a couple of weeks, people came and visited! Tonight on Twitch, I’ll be playing more FFXIV because I need to catch up on stuff and I’m trying to save up money to buy a large house when Patch 3.3 releases on June 7th.

Speaking of Patch 3.3, if you haven’t seen it already, WATCH THIS TRAILER. I’m so excited!

Back from Vacation!

My vacation was AWESOME! At some point, I’ll share some highlights, but for now, I just want to let you know what I’ve updated my Twitch streaming schedule.

I also want to share this silly video:

My husband and I are bouncing around in a bouncy castle with boobies. My sister was taking the video. This was absolutely silly and super fun! And tiring…

Hope to see you on Twitch!

Twitch Schedule Update

For those of you that hang out in my Twitch channel regularly, you know that I’m going on vacation to my son’s college graduation in New York. I don’t actually leave until Wednesday afternoon, but I’m really not sure if I’m going to be able to stream at all tonight or tomorrow night. There’s just too much I need to take care of before we leave. 😦

I’ve updated my Twitch schedule page to reflect this.

I fly back to Hawaii on the 23rd and am hoping to resume streaming on the 24th. HOWEVER, jet lag can be a real bitch, so I may need a day or two to recuperate. We’ll see. I will miss you guys while I’m gone, but I’ll be having a blast on vacation. Looking forward to hanging out on stream when I get back!

Here’s a goofy screenshot of my husband surrounded by a little harem of bikini-clad ladies:

He’s such a good sport! 😀

Some JRPG News

Persona 5 has a release date! In Japan, anyway… /sigh I want this game SO BAD. Look at this trailer! Look! OMG.

I love all the weird, creepy shit and the cel shaded graphics. And the music! Persona always has the best music!

Here’s more footage of gameplay. I love the demons. ❤

In other news, people are playing the Japanese version of Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness. While Famitsu gave it a decent score (34/40), people are rating it as kind of meh. Here’s the thing, though. I’ve never played a JRPG based on what other people said. A lot of comments I’ve read indicate that the game is more like 3 than 4. I’m not really sure why that’s a BAD thing. I hated 4. So that’s how I know that I need to make these decisions for myself. I am still looking forward to this game, regardless of the opinion of others.

I finally played the Platinum Demo for Final Fantasy XV. I know, I know… Took me long enough, right? I spent just under an hour on it. I am just as hyped for that game as ever. I know some people complained that the demo was basically a tech demo, but that’s really what I liked about it. It gave me a feel for what the game is going to feel like when it actually comes out.

I spent a few more hours in Dark Souls III, but haven’t gotten to the next boss yet. I keep getting impatient and then careless. Of course, this makes me die. But I’m getting more practice at dodging and all that good stuff, so it’s worth it. I really do find this game to be pretty. Just look at that mighty dragon…

I’m also making good progress in Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix. I just googled how to take screenshots on the PS3, so I’ll try to remember to start doing that… (Of course, there’s no guarantee that I’ll be able to screenshot. It’s some kind of coding thing, apparently, that developers can choose to turn on/off.)

Tonight on Twitch, I’m hoping to play some Final Fantasy XIV and then possibly more Kingdom Hearts if I have time. The problem is that I’m trying to get my Anima weapon completed, so I need to do beastman daily quests, daily hunts, and dungeons for tomestones. This is extremely time consuming. But if I’m going to be viable to my raid group when I get back from vacation, I need a better weapon. Period. I’m going to be away from the game for almost  two weeks, so I’m going to fall even further behind than I already am. On the up side… Once I get back from my vacation, I probably won’t be able to afford to go anywhere for awhile, so my streaming schedule won’t get interrupted! XD

Come by and say hi!

3 HOURS!!!

I’ve been quiet lately. Life is a bit hectic these days, so I haven’t had the time to post anything. Today was a busy day. I tried to sleep in, but there were people knocking on everyone’s door, trying to spread the good word or something. Don’t bang on my door before noon on a Saturday. Seriously. Fuck off. Unless you’re giving me a million dollars or some shit, do NOT wake me up on a weekend. I could hear them asking our neighbors about their problems and offering to help them through prayer or whatever. So when they knocked on our door, we just ignored it. But still, all the voices outside and the knocking woke me up. That really pissed me off.

After eating breakfast, I paid some bills and then played some Final Fantasy XIV. I got my Dark Knight to 45 and then discovered that the Heavensward jobs don’t get a gear set like the other jobs do. Oh well. I’ll just FATE farm in Northern Thanalan until I hit 50. I’m pretty sure I’ve got a ton of level 50 tank gear.

I got my nails done this afternoon. As always, my nail artist did amazing things. They somehow make me think of candy.

I sent my husband grocery shopping while I got my nails done so that we could go straight to wine tasting once I was done. I made chickpea and broccoli curry for dinner and then we played more Final Fantasy XIV.

Once I got my roulettes and everything done, I decided to make another attempt at passing the tutorial in Dark Souls III. That stupid boss kept killing me! Over and over and over! I got to the point where I refused to give up JUST because I had been at it for so long. I was just being ridiculously stubborn. It ultimately paid off, but it took me THREE FREAKING HOURS to finally defeat that one boss! And if you’re a Dark Souls aficionado, you’d know that it wasn’t even a REAL boss! It was just a fight designed to teach you mechanics and strategies. I was SO frustrated. And I was streaming on Twitch the entire time, too. That must have been so painful to watch… At least I finally got past it.

I’m a Herald, by the way. Perhaps I would have had an easier time if I rolled a different class like Knight or something, but this class seemed interesting. I’ll probably regret my decision later. I’m already regretting it! LOL XD
