I write about video games and horror-related items. Also, I wear a hat.
It's more like movie progress
I returned from my trip today. While in Seattle, I didn't do a lot of gaming because I didn't have time. When I did have free time, I spent it either reading or watching movies, since I have backlogs of books and movies to go through as well.
Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius (Android)
I made it to the second continent, where the character Fina decided to chase a chocobo into the woods. I was going to battle my way through the forest to complete that part of the story, but decided to complete some side quests firsts. While doing a dungeon crawl mission, I picked off the last of the coeurls and sergeants to complete those quests, plus I found a missing citizen and defeated the optional boss Hell Rider. I have yet to cash these quests in, though.
Pokemon GO (Android)
It's been hectic the last few days. We're currently trying to get all of our chores completed before shoving off to visit family for a few days. I've been able to find time to game and write, thankfully. That'll probably change once I go back to work, though.
Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius (Android)
I've spent a little time leveling up my troops and changing out their equipment, not to mention beefing up my one and only esper, Siren. Story-wise, the last thing I did was rescue the king and unlock a new town. I'm also getting close to 5000 lapis, so I'm looking forward to cashing it in for 11 new units.
Breath of Fire (SNES)
Sadly, it won't be Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick
As I previously mentioned, I'm currently on vacation until November 1. I also recently started playing the first-person, action/adventure title (with horror elements) Betrayer. It's an average game, but I'm at least moved enough by it to pen a crit. My only constraint right now is time. I'll be leaving for Seattle soon, and I'd like to have it all done before then.
Yay for vacations
The last month has been killer. I've had little time to game, and even less time to write. My schedule consists of waking up, maybe cleaning the house, taking my kids to school or therapy, zipping to my mother-in-law's house to drop them off, driving to work, putting in my eight hours and either going home or heading to the gym. If there's any free time, I usually spend it power napping. Lately, I've learned how to game the daily routine such that I get a little more time, plus I've been taking my laptop to work so I can hammer out reviews and such that way.
As of yesterday, I Saturday a two week vacation. I hope to get some more gaming in and maybe cough up some reviews. We'll see, though. As for the gaming progress that I can recall:
And here are my thoughts.
I've watched five of the ten movies I drew up a while back, and I now have my thoughts on each film put together in mini-review format. Obviously, I didn't watch them in the order drawn:
It's available for Android APK users, though...
One of Pokemon GO's limitations is its evolution system. In order to evolve a Pokemon, you need a specific type of candy. You obtain this candy by catching that particular Pokemon. For instance, if you capture a Squirtle, Wartortle or Blastoise, you'll obtain three Squirtle candies. You can also gain an additional piece of candy for "transfering" a Pokemon to the professor, which is basically like deleting it from your list.
Obviously, since certain Pokemon are not easy to find, evolving them can be a royal pain. You might be able to catch enough Squirtles to evolve to a Wartortle, which requires 25 Squirtle candies, but can you nab enough of them to promote him to a Blastoise (requires 100 Squirtle candies)? Niantic had to find a way around this.
Expect ROTW soon
With my new schedule firmly in place, I've had little time to game. Also, I cold turkeyed caffeine this week to help reduce my anxiety. The good news is my anxiety has gone down considerably. The bad news is caffeine withdrawals are a pretty terrible thing to live through. Headaches are only the beginning. I've also had to deal with drowsiness, sciatic nerve pain, fatigue and the occasional bouts of light sensitivity. Thankfully, I've gotten through the worst of it and no longer need to sleep all the time.
