My husband has a driving wheel with pedals and shifter to play his racing games, but there's always issues on where to mount it, making space, moving it around. He has wanted a collapsible driving chair for years. This year he shared one with me, and it wasn't that expensive. Take a look: So his … Continue reading A Driving Chair for Sim Racing
I've started using an online writing tool to up my word count: 4thewords. You can find it here if you want to take a look. Right now I'm outlining, but it forces me to sit down and work on it daily. There's a one month free trial, and after that a month's worth of their … Continue reading Writing Tools: 4TheWords
I am delighted. I just saw the new trailer for Guild Wars 2, and there's going to be a third expansion! It's not due to come out until 2021, but I'm excited, and I'm hoping they'll explore the asian continent from the first game. You can find the trailer here. The logo: And there's a … Continue reading Guild Wars 2: A New Expansion?
Octopath is a TON of fun, and I'm so glad my husband was able to get a copy! I spent *cough*seven*cough* hours this weekend playing it, and he was wonderful about explaining strategies and timing so I was doing fairly well. I have especially been playing with Primrose's Bewildering Grace attack, and it's been great … Continue reading Bewildering Grace – Octopath Traveler
Just because this game has SO MUCH eye candy, I'm letting you all know what my husband is playing. The game is Elite Dangerous on PS4, and it is PRETTY. It's a space exploration game that's fairly geeky, and the graphics are amazing. The inside of your ship with what I think is a Red … Continue reading What My Husband Is Playing: Elite Dangerous
If you know me, you'll know I'm not a fan of Shmups (Shoot 'em ups), but my husband does enjoy them, and he INSISTED that I give Steredenn a try in two-player mode. I am, frankly, not very good at fast paced and fast moving games, and I have definite difficulties telling which character is … Continue reading Steredenn: We Beat a Shmup!
I actually completed this a little over a week and a half ago, but I was mostly sitting and digesting it. This game was SO good, and I'm still working on filling in blades and such. The end of the story line went a bit left field for me but tied neatly in with Xenoblade … Continue reading Xenoblade 2: Completed Main Story Arc
Okay, I am so enamored with this game, and this is the furthest I've EVER gotten into a game on my own. My husband did admit to sneaking on while I was sleeping New Year's Day and leveling me so I could move forward faster. I've been dragging my heels. I want to take my … Continue reading We Rang in the New Year with Xenoblade 2! (Mild Spoilers.)
Just wanted to share some pretties from an area I'm exploring in Xenoblade II! This is inside one of the titans, and if you time it juuuuust right, sunset will come through his skin panels and light up everything gloriously. I mean, the trees are already pretty, but this is lovely. Oh, and say hello … Continue reading Pretties! Xenoblade II on the Switch
I am in love with this game. My husband took a few screen captures so you could see it. *smile* The fighting is crisp and satisfying with a definite puzzle feel to getting the different arts to work. It's actually my favorite part of the game and is all about timing and slotting things in … Continue reading What I’m Playing: Xenoblade II on the Switch
