This morning I went ahead and streamed some Fantasy Strike. Did my usual, getting my ass kicked doing online games, then watching people's replays while I lick my wounds.
A good experience, but I probably could've spent the time even better doing something else though.OMG Linus's look LOL! (second panel)
Well, to start, as I reached Twitch affiliate status some time ago, I'm allowed to make a custom emote, which ended up being:
A reference to a The Far Side
comic that goes:
Because I can only have one of these, I needed a "one size fits all" emote, something that could cover all the emotions. Few people - mostly fans of The Far Side
- will probably get what this means, but it is what it is.
But anyway, for the session itself it was my usual. In Guild Wars 2 it was my daily crafting and open-world stuff. I had to kill a world boss, but luckily one spawned in the time that I was there.
And Fantasy Strike was mostly me just watching replays, still a bit flustered - for lack of a better word, got all the respect in the world for guys who wipe the floor with me - from this morning's repeated thrashing. I did do a "boss rush" though, a mode where you get random powerups, but you also have to fight beefed-up opponents as well. And I also got my butt kicked by a friend to close out the session.
And here's the vinyi I played this evening:
Fugazi - In on the Kill Taker
The Chieftans - The Chieftans 2
Frank Zappa - Hot Rats
Mozart - Eine Klein Nachtmuzik, and other assorted tunesFridayUnlike most of these comics, where they're just added on a whim, no reflection on what the stream was like, this one IS an indicator of today's stream (more on this later)
Today's Guild Wars 2 session went surprisingly fast. All my crafting and open-world dailies were done in about 45 minutes (usually it's at least an hour). So I just switched on over to Fantasy Strike, where I did a few solo matches, then did a few onlines, where I got my ass handed to me in short order, often from opponents doing the same attack pattern on me over and over. After these kinds of defeats,....:
Formerly it was
<<(I drew this wrong. -_-
Sorry if this doesn't make sense. Basically, it means the game is becoming less fun for me, and a hiatus might be incoming. Playing solos/onlines put me "in the red". And watching replays are now starting to put me "in the blue", not really getting anything out of them. So, there's a chance I might be playing something else now, at least temporarily. I might try out a game called Yomi
, a collectible-card version of Fantasy Strike, but we'll see.
The LP records I spun this evening were:
Vangelis - Earth
Metallica - Kill em' All
Rachmaninoff - Concerto No. 2 in C Minor
And okay! Nap time, and then get ready for work. Thanks for watching/reading, and have yourselves a good weekend. ;)>Link to my Twitch channel.Link to my Youtube channel.Why I Stream.
