A weekly post updated every Tuesday detailing my current gaming projects. I have quite a backlog of games to either play or watch, and I’m hoping a weekly article will assist with my progress as my other accountable posts have done with reading and writing.
I have an account at Grouvee, which is a essentially Goodreads for gamers, so please feel free to friend me there!

Well it’s happened. I’ve spent money on a freemium game. $30 to be exact. I dropped $20 about a week ago because I wanted to have enough lapis to make several summons in the hopes of getting Setzer. I did not succeed, but I do now have Terra (actually drew her twice). Then I had to spend $10 because I was completely out of lapis. Pretty much lapis is the real currency of the game. You earn it through completing quests (which cost NRG), and you can earn additional per quest by fulfilling certain variable requirements. It’s also used to purchase more things than even gil, which can be obtained by spending lapis. I only had 75 of the latter and I was out of material space. In order to increase your slots, you need (you guessed it!) lapis, so I bought $10 worth. So you can spend legitimate money in order to obtain lapis, which is in game money, which can also be used to acquire gil, which is typical Final Fantasy currency. If I wasn’t so tired, I could think of an overarching term for what this is called, but the Narcissist had to take a nap when she got home from work, and that always throws me off a bit.
I’m currently trying to pick up espers I missed with the help of my good friend LightningEllen, and I’m a little embarrassed I missed Ifrit whom I was on the way to get, but I think I decided to leave the continent he was on and promptly forgot to go back lol. I would not have discovered the location of Golem without help, and I’m not quite to where Shiva is located yet. I would’ve gotten Golem last night, but I ran out of NRG, which is another consumable the game makes you expend in order to do any quests. Once again Squeenix has me in its grip.

Haven’t had a chance to play this this week, but it’s now on my day planner instead of FFV (I know, I know). I figure this counts for my two game limit, so I might as well treat it as such. I’m hoping to finish at least Chapter 2 before next week.

- Okami – Per a review by Nintendo Bound, I added this unfortunately underappreciated game that seems to have been wholly missed by the mainstream. I considered putting it on my play list, but though the story sounds gorgeous, it seems more like an action RPG, though it still might find its way onto my backlog. If I can find a Let’s Play, I’ll watch just to see how the battle mechanics work, and if I think I can handle them, I’ll play it myself.

So this Friday is my birthday.
Yasssss, damn right pallas cat! I’m going to be 37. I took off work because I can, and I’m hopefully driving down to West Chester to talk to my tattoo artist about my next inking.
Anyway my husband received a large Amazon box on Monday, and since I was working from home that day, I answered the door, put it on the couch, figured it was for me, and forgot about it. When he came home, he confirmed my suspicion and asked if I wanted to open it. I’d also received a birthday card in the mail from my father with a $50 check in it (I need to call him to thank him btw), so I figured what the hell, I’ll open the box.
The game Eldritch Horror and a webcam. A while ago I listened a podcast run by Cheap Boss Attack and his friend Chuck Zodl at Counter Attack Games (the first one I had the pleasure of experiencing), and CBA started talking about the fore mentioned game (I can’t remember what specific podcast it was, so the link just goes to the list). I looked it up on Amazon, and it looked like something that would be fun plus I have an IRL friend who is into games of all shapes and measure who would probably be on board to play this with me. Once I look it over, I’ll give him a buzz (as in message on Facebook. The Shameful Narcissist avoids calling people at all costs) and make some plans to play. Huh, I just looked at the box a bit closer and it says “1 to 8 players,” so I could play this by myself? Haha, nooooo, I’m not doing that. No slithering down into the bowels of insanity for THIS Narcissist.
As for the webcam, my next step is to research adequate lighting and set that up, but this is just one of the many pieces involved in the blog update I’m planning to do in June. Hm, I should probably start prepping better for that. I’m woefully under prepared.
What are you currently playing and/or watching? Is it something new or old? Is it a first time run or a replay? What’s the genre? Would you recommend it? What’s on your radar to play next?
