|E3 Wishlist edition, and some other stuff.|
Thanks to getting paid weekly at this new job of mine in conjunction with them giving me a lot more hours (4 hour shifts are a thing of my past), I have a bit more weekly play money than I expected.
In my last job I was getting anywhere from 220 to 400 (On holiday weeks mostly). -160 for general food and rent and what was left was my play money. But on a weekly basis, the food and rent is lower but I still get around ~250 per week. Take away about ~90 and thatís what I have to play with per week. This means I can typically get game related stuff on a more reliable basis under pretty much the same amount of funding I had before. This is cool.
I know sharing oneís personal funding is some kind of social taboo but maybe when Iím earning 15-20 an hour in an office I might hide this fact but Iím barely above minimum wage as a literal grocery bagger so who gives a shit.
Sorry for the tangent but hey, this is a blog.
First on my list is the upcoming Necromancer for Diablo 3, which I suspect will be released during Season 11 in a month or two. Played it on the PTR and their Grace of Inarius set reminds me of my wizardís Archon build. I used this in the PTR but I imagine itíll undergo some tweaking once actual high-tier pros start publishing theirs when they go live, but as it was it allowed me to do Torment 4-6 comfortably;
In a similar fashion to my wizard, if Bone Armor goes down (Mistiming, etc) then it leaves me vulnerable. Otherwise I barely took any damage because gear and runes made my defense stats spike into ridiculous levels.
I didnít like the playstyles of the other sets. The blood magic one is a nice concept but didnít like watching my health pool tank down to 10% constantly.
Anyway. E3 roundup anyone?
I donít know if Destiny 2 was even a talking point but the preorder stuff showed up around the same time. It will likely be my very first purchase later tonight once my money comes in. Some of my Watchtower gaming community is looking into it so Iíll certainly have people to play with in its first wave.
The deluxe and expansion stuff is a bit steep, but this game is attached to the Blizzard launcher so theyíre usually pretty good about allowing one to buy the upgrade. I can do 60$ now, and then do 40$ for all the extra stuff in a couple weeks, so when October rolls around Iíll have the super special funky extra edition. Hopefully?
Next on my priority is Life is Strange: Before the Storm. I have mixed feelings on this, partly because Chloe had some inklings of an abusive relationship with Max (Chloe herself being the perpetrator). I try to justify some of the problematic elements away, but mostly I just headcanon some traits and change Chloeís base cynicism down a few notches. Itís funny, Iím hardly in the target demographic for this kind of game and some of the teen drama in the first game made me cringe ever so slightly. However, the devs excel and environment, tone, and mood. I like its style and I adore the music. While the gameplay trailer didnít do a lot to sell Rachael to me, perhaps the game itself will explain some of her behavior. (Or I might just headcanon that shit away, too).

I have been buying the Assassin's Creed games right along, but I haven't played the last few I obtained. They look great. I just have a hard time saying "Okay, I'm going to sink the next few weeks of my life into this game." So I buy them and they sit there. And I'll buy Assassin's Creed Origins, I already know. I think it looks great. And someday, I'll probably wind up even playing it. The last time I got in an Assassin's Creed mode, I wound up playing through several in a row, ending with 3. 4, Unity, and Syndicate all interest me, and I hate to fall TOO far behind...
