Category Archives: Other Games I’m Playing

I need to be saved from myself and other things I say.

Welcome to Summer 2019 – where it’s hot as heck here in NY. Friday and Saturday were BRUTAL – like surface of the sun hotness. So, I being the smart Bunny that I am stayed inside my burrow. I’m old enough to know summertime is hot, I’m not disillusioned of this fact in any way and being the type of mother I am we stayed INDOORS. I have heavy blackout curtains and let the AC run on low all day. It was lovely. BUT, the question is what does one do inside.

We have 2 computers in the house – the BOY was on the one in the kitchen doing home school work. Its an older computer, so its perfect for the things he needed to do and it runs the Spore game he’s in LOVE with. I used the one in the living room. It’s newer and still going strong considering I built it from scratch like 2 years ago (actually it might have been 3 I’m not so sure now).

I spent most of the 2 days on said computer – logging in and right back out of ESO since my add-ons weren’t working and it was annoying me (UPDATE: they work now but I don’t know why they are acting so weird). I Streamed some Fallout 76. Did I tell you guys I got the game and I really like it. It’s soooo good, I spend hours wandering around discovering new things, getting missions and just poking my nose where is probably shouldn’t be. I think the biggest surprise for me is I have become a sniper – I love using the scope and just hitting things while hidden from a distance. For close up, I use a machete. I have various pistols and other rifles, but my S and M are my favorites.


My Fallout 76 Character just playin’ some tunes

I love the character – or rather I lover her MORE now than I did. The original was cute enough but I remade her a bit and now it’s just WONDERFUL…


This is what she originally looked like.

So this is her Vault ID card – character creation in this game is WORK. There are a lot of options all of them really really good. Straight on she looks very attractive – side view not so much. I mean ok I understand no beauty queens but can’t she have a good side GOSH. After a few weeks of playing I realized through all the screen shots I wasn’t really connecting with the Character any more. She didn’t have a name, I didn’t feel her story and as much fun as I was having I wasn’t all in…you know? I didn’t want to start all over again and I knew I had another Character “slot” , but i’m not THAT excited to start from the beginning again at this point. So I sat and fiddled with her creation again.

SO yeah there are a lot of options – Fallout 76 is NOT IN ANY WAY clear about how to do things. There is no real instruction, there is maybe a vague idea and that’s about it. The Wiki wasn’t very helpful either and not being able to chat with people in zone is a pain in the ass. I am lucky in that some of my friends play – although we don’t all play together or even at the same time. They were helpful in giving me some pointers. (That’s for another post of course – lol).



THERE SHE IS FOLKS…..TELL ME THAT AIN’T THE NEW HOTNESS? She is basically the same, I darkened her skin, added another scar, changed the hair and did a bit of tweaking with the nose. Yeah…yeah I know it doesn’t seem all that big of a change but trust me it is…


I mean come on how can you NOT melt at that?

She even has a name now – VARIN. I made her androgynous on purpose…. have a back story I’m trying to get together, but I don’t know enough of the Lore just yet to do that correctly. *deep SIGHHHH*

So don’t think I spent ALL that time playing Fallout. I really would have loved to, but I had to force myself to take a break. I spent time with the Boy, did a bit of cleaning, and took a nap. When it’s this hot out there really isn’t much you can do. I did a bit of reading as well. I currently have a LARGE amount of books that I got free on Amazon – I feel its my duty to read them even if some are PURE trash. I finished off 2 books that I was at the halfway mark in. That only took about an hour or so. NOW this is the problem I have that i’m gonna share with you all – I am addicted to FAN FICTION. I know…I know. I am not ashamed nor am I proud of this. I read a LOT of it – especially for the games I play. I spent a good 4 hrs on Friday and 5 hrs on Saturday reading some peoples work. A large proportion of it was of the umm Adult Kind….Now what no one tells you is that reading Fan Fiction is a gateway addiction to…….writing it *GASP*


Fun Fact: I have been a writer of things almost my whole life – it is something I enjoy, not to the point of wanting to be an actual professional but I have stories that often pop up in my mind and I need to get it out.


So my online Battle Buddy whom I met in Elder Scrolls Online has since dragged me kicking and screaming back to Guild Wars 2. I haven’t played in 4 years and these past 3 weeks have reminded me WHY. My hats off to Arena Net for making a game that is ALL CONSUMING. At least for me – so much Lore and detail and quest lines and fashion and just my goodness. I knew this was going to happen, Knew I was going to get sucked in…just KNEW IT. The crazy thing is my toons were all still there – still at the same levels I left them at all those years ago. Hell I was still a member of 2 guilds that I originally joined. So I did the only thing I could I started finishing up quest lines. Cleaning up my characters main stories – or rather the main story on my main toon. I made some changes to how she looked – I figured 4 years is a lot of time so none of them could exactly stay the same could they?


Bright eyed level 22 – she has no idea……


This is Ennus (I’m going to change that name as soon as I get the 800 gems to do it). She is a Necromancer and I do like playing her. I made this all those years ago when there weren’t to many options on looks.


Oh someone has grown up

Here she is again at level 80 with siblings lol (That salad boy isn’t there any more – he had to go). Same hair style –  different color.


I came back for you baby

AND this is how I found her after all these years – same hair color but shorter. Do you see what I mean? WHY DO I HAVE THESE PICTURES FROM 4 YEARS AGO? Am I crazy or what…..don’t answer that lol. So not only am I playing again, BUT I also got the expansion because you know MOUNTS.


Hey good lookin’

I gave her a bit more of a mature look – or rather changed her hair. It’s longer and a prettier color I think. I still don’t have enough gems for the name change yet – but one of the good things about the game is you can convert in game gold to gems and vice verse. Which is AMAZING, but its a grind. Its not the easiest thing ever but it is a thing.

So what does this all have to do with anything, because of these games and reading the other day I’m starting to write my Fan Fiction again. Games can inspire us to do amazing and well NOT so amazing things. So in the end I wanted to share, maybe dear reader you can go back to something you put on the side lines and start it over again – KISSESSSSSS.

Update to Life

HEYYYYYYYYYYYYY everyone – so once again I see I haven’t been writing much – BUT it is OK I’m at peace with it. There is an actual reason for it this time. I have been busyish? Work has been all over the place, holidays have come and gone and life continues on. OK maybe not holidays over with there still is Xmas or whatever you celebrate so that’s ok too.

DID I mention I was playing this? Maybe I did, maybe I didn’t.

SO I have been streaming – not as much as I would like or as often, but I really have been. It is mostly Maple Story 2 and ONE Elder Scrolls Online. I’m trying to get a schedule together. In the short amount of time I have been doing it I have like 17 followers. It really is exciting times….

I’m having a little issue with the audio, it just doesn’t capture well. I think I may have to turn up the volume from the headset – but that makes it to loud for me to hear. For some reason I also can’t seem to hear the music in the game – not sure why that is.

I have also been looking into other games – One of them is Dying Light 2 (link to a video: ) I didn’t play the first one but have always been interested in it. I may have to get the first one to do the things with and when the second one comes out I can enjoy that. It’s only like $20 on humble bundle right now.

Another I have my eye on is Slime Rancher (link to video:

It seems like another of those really cute games that I would enjoy. OK tats it for now – talk later.

*disclaimer* I actually wanted to write more but this new WordPress setup is a pain in the ass and I don’t like it. Im not in the mood to be annoyed since I still have 4 hours of work and i don’t want my annoyance lvl to go any higher then it is.

Could have SWORN…..

I started writing a post on my tablet and apparently didn’t save the draft so when I logged in to finish it up  THERE IS NOTHING THERE. Oh well, life goes on I’m enjoying the blogging at least.


Everything is going well with the game – or not. SO I have it loaded on the computer in the kitchen (it’s a HP TouchSmart 9300 Elite – I got free from work). Victor spends a lot of time there if I let him. Which means it doesn’t have to be super powerful since he mainly plays online games like Roblox and stuff.

My mistake was I GUSHED over add-ons, without realizing what I was really getting myself into. There are for real so many different types to pick from, I went a bit crazy ANDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD the game wouldn’t load…lol.

I couldn’t figure out why – but I had some ideas of how to fix it. I went through a lot of different things – making sure the game was patched, making sure it was not broken. So I decided to get rid of all the CC stuff. Or rather I took everything out of the Mod folder in the game and put in a separate folder. I picked maybe 20 things and started with that. BOOM the game loaded – EXCITING. Since it was like 1:30 in the morning I decided to stop for the night.

Later I’m going to just delete all the add-on’s except for the ones that I know to work. I also loaded the game to the other computer, it’s more powerful and my gaming unit.


The new patch for the game is coming out soon and it’s Hallow Jack Season again…. it’s Halloween for ESO. So they are of course having new crates. I want to be excited about this, but there isn’t really anything there that holds my interest – BUT there is one thing I hate….



They call it the Hallow Jack Netch and I has QUESTIONS… did it get the pumpkin on its head? I mean I could understand almost any OTHER creature getting themselves all caught up like this. How did it get a pumpkin on itself? I’m going to be honest I HATE this thing, not netches mind you I love those things. BUT this is just stupid and ugly. I think it would have been a lot better to just change the glow of it to like orange and black or even red and black. Dear lord at least it’s not on FIRE. If they wanted to go with the cheese factor why not put a freakin’ ghost costume on it?


So I’m watching this show on TV here’s a link – it’s supposed to be based on the movies. Now I didn’t dislike the Purge movies – I in my own way enjoyed them very much. They do reflect an era we are living in. I went so far to write a few of my own stories based off of the movies. Well if you haven’t seen the show here’s a blurb from the website:

During a 12-hour period when all crime — including murder — is legal, a group of seemingly unrelated characters cross paths in a city in an altered America. While the clock winds down, some will fight, some will hide, others will embrace what it means to purge to its fullest extent — whether for revenge, personal gain, protection, or unadulterated glee. As each character is forced to reckon with his or her past and plot how to better their futures, they soon discover how far they will go on Purge Night.

To be honest I’m not sure how to take this show. I also realize I’m not the best at writing reviews so bear with me. The show starts a few hours before Purge starts – there are 4 stories going on at the same time. No main character but a bunch of main characters – if that makes sense. No lie some things seem really freakin’ boring and petty. Oh there is a cult of course sending out young people to die. A brother back from the Marines looking for his sister. A couple who want to get money from a rich guy and his family so they have to play nice. I would say give it a watch and maybe you’ll be into it – some stuff was very predictable, but i’m just that sort of person…LoL


Makin’ My Way Down Town


AHOY AHOY everyone – I hope all of you have been having a decent time since last I posted. For all of you with kids – HAPPY BACK TO SCHOOL GET THE KIDS OUT OF THE HOUSE season. For those who don’t have human children – HAPPY MAKING IT THROUGH ANOTHER DAY. I hope all is as right as it can be in your worlds. So lets see?? Hmmmmmm…… ok first my ESO news.



Return to the heart of Tamriel with our Imperial City Anniversary Event! While the three Alliances continue to vie for control of Cyrodiil, the Imperial City itself remains firmly under Daedric occupation. Dive into the capital during the event and earn bonus rewards including double Tel Var Stones, double the chance to find unique drops, and more!

Yup PVP madness in the Imperial City. My guildies and I decided we were going to give it a go last night. There was about 10 of us and since Saturday’s are our usual PvP time we went for it. We had a BLAST – I brought my Imperial Cilano who I have respected to front bar sword/board and back bar resto staff. (It’s more of a Battle Grounds build – but it worked). We got killed maybe twice. After a while in the sewers we decided to go top side and do some traditional PvP. We sieged a few keeps, flipped some resources and had an all around good time. I logged out at 12 and they were still going (I would have stayed but I had to be to work on Sunday at 7am). I still log into the game every day and do some daily things and treasure maps cause that’s just how I roll. I have been picked to do trivia next Sunday because apparently everyone enjoys it when I come up with questions…Yeaaa I’m helping…


Dead Frontier 2 has gone live, Here is the link on steam I haven’t had a chance to play yet, but it looks AMAZING. A nice old-fashioned zombie killing game. If you get a chance check it out. I especially like the fan fiction in the forums section, and have written a bit of my own stuff (just haven’t posted any of it yet – lol).



OK now about the Sims 4 and what it’s doing. I have as of YET to log into the actual game. The reason being as there are so many add-ons and mods for it I have been looking at a lot of them. I have also been looking into HOW to do mods. Right off the bat I have to tell you what I have noticed – there are 2 types of Sim peeps. One wants everything hyper real and the other likes to stay as close to the original as possible


This is a more Hyper real skin



A bit more of the original game sim (although eyes are not)


Now I can see the Pro’s and Con’s of both things – but I think I will stay with the one closest to the original.

Another thing I seem to have noticed is there aren’t as many options for Minority Sims – the hair textures for them is AWFUL. I did a lot of searching and thank goodness people are fixing this issue, but it still is not exactly what I’m looking for. (note: apparently I was looking in the wrong places cause I just found 2 that could actually work for me). 

A gripe I AM having is the lack of tusks for Orcs…sure maybe it’s just me who has this issue. Not just tusks but houses for them as well. So guess who has a project as soon as they figure out how to do it? THIS CHICK. Oh and the green for the skin is cute but like blarghish. So i’m also in search of something to fix that. I did find some cute horns.

So for most of the YouTube videos I’ve seen everyone uses like Photoshop and blender to do their fixes. I don’t have photoshop and am looking for a free option – if anyone has suggestions that would be great.

Speaking of houses – OH MY BLOB there are a lot of options – my inner architect is foaming at the mouth. I’m so super happy that I can’t wait to start building – but of course I will. I wanted to base it on this city I dream about often. It has 4 sections so it lines up really well with maps they give you in the free version – although I’m wondering if I can get and or find a black sand beach?

Oh I made a tumblr page oto post the things I have been finding and at some point to post my creations ^_^ My Sims Tumblr page

Well that’s all for now – HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE.

This is my Life now – LOL


So as you all may know I have been like 100% in on ESO. I play it everyday and enjoy it a lot. Questing and Battle Grounds and all that good good stuff. I have noticed like many gamers there is the issue of burnout. It happens to the best of us – I mean I’ve been playing the game since freakin’ BETA. That’s what? Like 5 years or something like that. It’s a long long loooonnnnnnnngggggggggggggggggggg time. Well not really – but it is.

So I decided I wanted to kind of find another game to play. So I was back to Dead Frontier

which is an amazing game for sure, but it’s a zombie killing game. So yeah, not very less stress at all. *As a side note Dead Frontier 2 is coming out in a few weeks and it looks JUST as amazing and of COURSE I will be playing that bad boy as well.* 

So off on the journey to find a less stressful game. I play Toy Blast – one of those downloaded app games. I’m on lvl like 400 or something like that. Very not stressful, BUT I didn’t want to always be on my tablet – especially since it drains the battery after a while. So on a lark I went into Origins – yes I have a monthly account cause my son was HEAVY into Plants vs Zombies. Anyway after looking through I came to the Sims page.


I remember playing the first Sims game, it wasn’t bad but it wasn’t great…at least not to me. No that’s not actually correct – it couldn’t HOLD my attention is what the problem was. I like simulator games, I do. It was just hard for me to get around it for some reason.

There are a number of options when it comes to the Sims games and frankly Origin has ALL of them. Interesting, but I wanted to go with the new good. Something I found interesting is they have a demo character creation thing. As in if all you want to do is make toons. I downloaded that first – and let me tell you WOW. It was a lot of fun just messing around with the different setting. *I don’t have a screen shot just yet, but trust that I will.* They give you the option to “share” with the community, cool, weird but cool. People can comment on it and everything. I looked through a couple that were up, some comments were nice, some were not *shrug* such is how the gaming world is.

So I did the thing I always do – research…there is a CRAZY amount going on with this game. There is also a HUGH amount of mods. I had no idea, I kinda feel like its that Skyriim sort of thing. Game just grows and grows mod wise…. some things I have noticed. Some people like more “humanized” toons. The houses are nice. And I’m itching to do mods myself.

Anyway – I am like in the rabbit hole right now – I will keep you all updated on things and stuff. Going to have to make a proper tag. ^_^

*Is anyone else playing the game? Any advice?
