I'm keeping things pretty simple this week. I'm dabbling in WoW trying out different Paladin specs to see how I want to level up my character. I know I'll go for holy as main spec, but it was a toss up for me if I would level as ret or prot. After the last few days of testing, I think I'll go for prot.
What are you guys playing?
What are you guys all playing this weekend? If I had to guess, I bet a lot of you are playing God of War. That’s the latest, hot and trending release, right?
I let Graev pick it up, and I’m waiting on his feedback. At that point I’ll probably just borrow it from him to play on my own.
This weekend I’m playing mostly PixARK. I’m pretty much level 70, which means I have 10 more levels to squeeze out before I have access to all of the engrams I want.
I’m working on building a really neat underground base. I’m going to have switches to activate platforms, lights, auto-defense turrets, etc. I’m even going to have a cool cliff-side area where I can deploy flying dinos and dock them when I’m not using them.
I’m also going to have some cool lifts and elevator systems to lower me down into this massive cavern we have below our base with lots of neat creatures.
The end-game is a mystery to me. Maybe we’re almost to the end-game? Maybe there are world bosses I haven’t found? Still exploring that side of things as I play. My bronto base is in the works as well, but I’m going to finish that once my main base is finished.
Let me know what you’re playing!
This weekend got away fast. I had lots to do on Saturday and Sunday, so I ended up only getting in a little bit of time on the one game I played a bunch of: EverQuest.
Yep, I played EverQuest again! That shouldn’t come as a surprise, seeing that I posted about it several times recently. We’re on the Coirnav progression server having a good time. It’s exactly the same as every new progression server, though. If that hasn’t been your thing in the past, no reason to expect it to be any different this time around.
As we wrap up the weekend, I'm curious what games you all are playing.
Here's my list:
We blew up the meteor tonight! I have a video and write-up coming tomorrow. It was awesome to see this feature play out even cooler than we expected. Many of you have asked me whether or not this means the game has ended. Nope! In fact, shortly after the meteor blew up people went on talking about what they were building next.
Our server will likely stay up and as-is for a little while. We may add mods or restart the world (bigger this time) with mods or simply keep it vanilla.
As the weekend comes to a close here at the — almost literal — 11th hour, I’m curious to hear about the games YOU played. I think my time was quite obviously spent in ECO, which is an immersive and realistic sandbox building/surviving game. The Keen and Graev Community has our very own server that we actively play on and maintain, which has been the crucial component of how much fun I’ve been having.
Before we get to what we played this weekend, let’s remember there are some cool games coming out this week: ECO and Dragon Quest Builders (Switch). I’m glad to have more distractions.
My time this weekend, specifically Friday through Sunday, was spent playing:
I know some of my friends have been playing oldies like Baldur’s Gate 2 and FF11 (Nasomi). Others dabbled once again in WoW after the allied races happened.
What about you?
What are you guys playing this weekend?
I’m playing a lot of Skyrim on the Switch. I’ve been leveling a warrior-type using 1h and block. Having not played Skyrim for years, I wasn’t aware of so many of the little changes. The biggest change is to Smithing. My goal was the level up Smithing and craft some pretty epic items. Turns out, it’s a little more difficult now. Smithing in Skyrim now works off the value of the item. From what I read, the best ratio of resources to skill gains comes from making ‘gold rings’, but I’m also reading some info about Dwarven Smithing. Looking for some advice here.
This weekend I’m looking forward to having some time to relax and invest in some games. This week was marred by food poisoning (or something unpleasant…) and a ton of client work. I’m ready for some R&R.
I’ll be clocking time in Skyrim for Switch, finishing up an Assassin’s Creed 2 play-through with my wife, and perhaps looking at getting We are Billions.
I’ve been meaning to start a weekend feature for some time now. Since I started posting every day — By the way I’m up to 138 days straight — I realized there’s a need for a few regular features. I think this will develop into one.
Since co-founding my own business and joining the ranks of the entrepreneurial work from home types, I’ve found that I have even less time to really devote heavily to games than I did when I was working 8 hours a day and commuting an hour each way. It’s that stress of, “If I do it then it won’t get done,” and knowing that my business only grows relative to the effort I directly put into its growth.
So weekends have become really valuable as a time off and time to breath.
That said, tonight we went to the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade, tomorrow we’re doing stuff, Monday we’re going to see family, etc. Live has a crazy way of being super active. That said, there are games.
Graev and I have been playing Sea of Thieves. We can’t say much more than that. The Technical Alpha is underway, and if you want to see more on what’s happening you should check out the Sea of Thieves Reddit. It’s very… Reddit… but it’s ‘probably’ accurate enough to represent the state of affairs. Can I say I’m having a blast? I don’t know if I can, so I won’t say it.
We also picked up the Halo Master Chief Collection and plan to play through that then get started on Halo 5. Perhaps before we start playing the MCC we’ll finish up Halo Wars. We’re debating jumping into a full playthrough in timeline order.
Lastly, we’re playing the Styx games. I’m currently playing single-player for the first game, and we’re playing the second game concurrently in full co-op. I’ll be writing up more of my thoughts on both the games soon.
What are you guys playing? Anything fun?
