We are changing the name of this section to – NEWS (maybe some rumors – no lies)

NEWS (maybe a rumor or three)

Rumors

  • Draculetta can be seen in Minecraft with the Damsels and with Pineleaf – this is news, not a rumor
  • I heard a rumor there’s going to be a husband swap but it never happens!  
  • SSG is going to change their monetization policy for LOTRO. Producer Oleg Brodskiy wouldn’t give specifics “I actually have to put the group pitch together for leadership to approve – but I”m hopeful that we’ll have a decision on overall direction within the next month or two.” (via Massively OP 12 Aug 21) (An aside, I’ll believe it when it actually happens, so just a rumor, not news.)

Question of the show – Would you play DDO more if they had a classic server? What would that ‘classic’ server need to have?

  • Before we start!  
    • Something interesting about Rupaul’s Drag Race’ Queens. Since appearing on the show:
      • Trixie Mattel is worth an estimated $10 million.
      • Courtney Act/5 mil.
      • Binaca Del Rio/4 mil.
      • Alyssa Edwards/3 mil.
      • Raven/2 mil.

RuPaul himself is worth an estimated $60 million. With results 

like that for appearing NOT winning, I wonder how many tapes

they have to watch when they are casting the show. It must 

take forever!

  • #BlackAF – You guys have to watch this!! Watch at least 1 episode to give it a chance.
  • He-Man Masters of the Universe, Revelation. In where they remove He-man from his own show and focus on the ladies and their many issues. 
    • Best part of this was in the first episode and I got to watch my husband lose his mind and get angry over a cartoon he watched as a kid. 
  • Dead Pixels on the CW Seed (watch for free on either app, CW or CW Seed) 
    • This show is literally me and all my friends. Being slaves to one game or another and then pretty much living life around that. Has two seasons. 

Grounded

So, I just wanted to mention this thing I’ve noticed more of lately on Steam. I know it’s not a new concept but it seems to be more prevalent lately. It’s this thing where you can play a game for free for a few days. I really like that and I think it’s a great thing for whichever game is doing it. I would love to know how many they sell during that time. I bet it’s a lot. Even though I know I can get my money back for a game if I don’t like it, I’m not just going to buy games willy nilly to try them out. But if they are running a promotion like this I very likely will try one out. Even something that isn’t on my radar if I just happen to run across it and it looks interesting. Anyway, that’s my 2 cents on the subject.

We played Grounded last time and it was a lot of fun. We have made ourselves a little encampment near a machine. Primarily because it was flat ground and we could use the machine for one wall but we have begun building a proper base nearby and have scoped out another place we want to put an outpost. We have 3 different types of armor now; clover, acorn/mite/aphid combo, and ant. We are working on ladybug armor now. Each one boosts a different stat and/or gives a different benefit, ie ant armor makes you stronger and makes it where ants won’t attack you. We have found several research facilities and have repaired a robot that is now sending us on quests and selling us recipes for crafting. We are still using level 1 tools but are about to make level 2 which will enable us to harvest new materials for crafting better equipment and base materials. I am very much looking forward to the drying rack so we can make bug jerky! Oh, we are now catching dew drops on a web we made. I think we need a couple more of those. The yard is huge and we have a lot more to explore!

  • Our two weeks in gaming copycat
  • Minecraft with DDO Players
    • Lessah and Pineleaf looking for Lapis in all the wrong places.
  • 7Days to Die 
    • POV Series
      • 7DTD series might be dead. Good luck getting Sahba back in this game. 
      • It might be time for another series. 
        • Are you bored with 7 Days to Die?
    • Vanilla Series is almost ready for the finale to be filmed. I will be filming one more episode for horde night and then the finale will have me and Mythery and anyone else who has joined me so far can come in if they like. We will be streaming and using the 7 Days to Die Interactive experience that allows viewers to drop zombies or loot on us at random. 
  • Frigid 
    • This is a play test survival game that I requested to be in and one day it just appeared in my list of games. So I am playing it. So far, it’s just cold and I can’t seem to find an axe. 
  • Boobs or GTFO 
    • In this game you are a cute girl in a bikini who must save her girlfriend from a cage and there are penis’ you can’t jump on or they will kill you. This game, I am pretty sure, was written my bots. Thanks Fierce Fred…
  • Satisfactory
    • In Rent and my game we have found oil, ran an impossibly long hypertube to it, and are about to make gas generators. 
  • Grounded
    • This is a fun game. I am afraid of everything!  

Housekeeping!
