Blogging motivation at an all-time low, sorry. The odd thing is an idea pops into my head almost daily to write about, but then the words never hit digital paper. Here goes a bunch of unrelated gaming thoughts and updates.
I’m still heavily playing Mighty Party. I’m now in the long-term grind phase, but since I like the core gameplay, that’s a good thing. A big update is expected by end of month, which should shake some thing up, and hopefully doesn’t break a ton of stuff.
I’ve been playing Darkest Dungeon again, having picked up the two paid expansions when they were on sale recently. It’s still an excellent game, and the expansions nicely enhance it. I especially like the Crimson Court dungeon, which rather than a random layout, is just one giant map you slowly explore that saves your progress. My goal here is to actually beat the game, having never killed the final boss. I think the power creep from the expansions should make the possible now without extreme end-game grind.
I’ve stopped playing Mount and Blade: Bannerlord after 80 hours not because its bad, but because I’ve played enough for now and want to give the game a nice break for when it comes out of early access.
I’m back playing League of Legends. This will get its own post later, but here I’ll just saying it’s like coming ‘home’. Just a fun game with top-tier polish and support.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is coming out in Early Access maybe in August. I’m very torn on jumping in right away as this might be a ‘play it once’ game, and I don’t want that first and most important time to be in a version that is far less than complete. On the other hand, maybe I play the EA version doing something I normally wouldn’t, like playing a full evil character, and seeing how it goes, so when the game is fully out, I can do my ‘normal’ playthough.
Dwarf Fortress on Steam is still coming along, and still sounds like it might ruin a whole bunch of my gaming time. I have a weak spot for games like this, and if the graphic and UI updates help me dig into the million systems the game has going, it should be a blast.
Finally the Battle Brother’s expansion is still at the top of my hype list. I’m just very, very ready for another go with that game.
