It feels like I haven’t actually been playing much at all, lately. In reality it’s just been Hearthstone and Duelyst, with a little Diablo III. Oh, and testing out a few games here and there. Tried Titan Quest, didn’t like it. Played the Open Beta weekend for Battleborn, liked it but not well enough to pay $70+ for it. Similarly, Overwatch is appealing, but not $90 appealing.
I keep thinking about TSW, but never actually get around to logging in. So this month I will aim to finish the Shadowy Forest zone and advance into the Carpathian Fangs.
There are so very many things to do in FFXIV, my goals could get too ambitious very easily. So without going hard at it, I’d like to:
- Get Arcanist to 30, finish the class questline
- Get through as much Main Story Questline as my level allows, i.e. hit the MSQ level wall
- Get Conjurer to 15
- Get Thaumaturge to 15
- Unlock and play around with Scholar and Summoner
- Complete the tier 1 Grand Company hunts so I can be promoted
In Hearthstone, with the new Standard format and the new card set, I want to make a serious tilt at gaining Legend rank this month.
Pick a game from my Steam list to play, and complete it. (Ideally, repeat for a second game. Before Stardew Valley caught me out, I was getting through two games a month fairly easily.) Nothing really stands out to me at the moment, but I am probably looking at either the Witcher, Planescape: Torment, Mass Effect, Dragon Age: Origins, or Grim Fandango.
I also would like to do a single playthrough of Long Live the Queen each week. I’ve made my first attempt, which ended with Eloise taking an arrow to the knee (gut) and making it fatal by pushing it through rather than leaving it the hell alone. It was a bit galling to get shot after I’d put so much training into flexibility and reflexes. Stupid bandits. Anyway, the game seems perfect for a single attempt per session.
