The Damsels Game Cast, Episode 155, Ten Out of Ten

Hello! We are the Damsels Game!

The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. We’ve been busy gamers and we are ready to talk about it. Thanks so much for listening! 

This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored (again) by the Skyblock Mall Experience. The Villagers would like to remind everyone that they were not forced to move and work in the Skyblock Mall Experience. That they are very happy and …please send help. That must be a typo. Anyway!

This week’s featured shop is: Meaty Meats by Maxx

This month Maxx from Meaty Meats by Maxx is making mouth-watering mutton meals for the meager and moneyless in the nearby municipalities. We are awarding Maxx the good citizen award for his gift of so many munchie mutton meals. So, when you are in the mood for mounds of memorable meat, think of Maxx! Meaty Meats by Maxx!

Intro:  

The Damsels Recorded Live on Sunday, October 10th. This is our 155th show.  We put shows out whenever we can, you can listen via iTunes, other podcast media, Our Website, DamselsofDDO.com, or our home at Podcast Garden.com. Interestingly enough, the last time I went to Podcast Garden, McCaffe tried to stop me. They said it was dangerous. I don’t know what that means.  

Jibber Jabber Time! 

  • Emails
    • We have two!!
      • Fierce Fred says Lessah needs to stream more 7DTD so he can call down the wrath of the bears.
      • And some odd email “Hi.  This is an email.  That is all.”
  • Let’s talk videos and comments to videos! 
    • Sahba Jade is very busy. 
    • DDO 
      • A Quest a Day – Ep 39 came out yesterday
        • Breetai Beerloaf thinks I should name my adventuring party.
        • In Ep 32 – Crystal Cove – Kobolds hate me.
        • In the Depths Series (28-31) – Sahba had some difficulties.
  • What we learned/ thoughts for the week:
    • Lessah:Buying something at launch isn’t always a great thing. Sometimes a game release has weird bugs that will be ironed out later. Sales are great.    
    • Myth:   
    • Sahba: Getting kicked off the highway can be fortuitous.

NEWS (maybe a rumor or three) and LET’S TALK (more in depth about some games we played than what we cover in our two-weeks in gaming) 

  • Twitch streamers – You may have received an email saying your stream keys need to be updated.  That’s because they’ve confirmed source codes, payment numbers, user info, and more was accessed during a Twitch server configuration change.  According to Twitch’s statement, it believes logins are not at risk, but maybe go change your passwords and set up two-factor authentication.  
  • Let’s Talk – World of Warcraft
    • Wow vs GW2 (vs DDO)
      • WoW Sub based – definite pay wall; GW2 once you buy it, it’s yours; DDO you can earn points and buy things – you never have to buy the game
      • WoW is free to play to 20 BUT can only group to 10 with other FtP; need a Sub player to group after 10, but only 1 Sub player – they don’t tell you this in the fine print that we could see – didn’t know it until we hit 10 and couldn’t group AND it’s very easy to get to 10 – were there by the end of the training area on exile island.  In DDO, grouping for <20 is restricted by level range so as not to power level.
      • WoW and GW2 have similar questing schemes for regular quests – each party member has their own quests, even if in a party and on the same quest; so Myth killing that boar may or may not count for me killing the boar (depends on the quest???) and same for fetch quests but these are worse where they may disappear after one party member gets them and you have to wait until they reappear for the next party member to get the item.  In DDO, if on a quest, everyone gets credit.
      • WoW and GW2 put spells and talents and things on the toolbar for you; WoW you can move them around.  I’m OK with both systems because they are that kind of game.  They are NOT trying to be D&D. 
      • WoW is really a single-player game even when in a group.
      • WoW – I don’t want to play most of the races.
  • Games I think we should give a go 
    • Halo: The Master Chief Collection ($39.99 Steam) or Halo: Infinite (Dec 8)
    • Conan Exiles
    • Deep Rock Galactic – FPS with mining dwarves ($29.99 Steam) 
    • Path of Exile or POE2 (Free to Play)
    • Destiny 2 (Free to Play)
    • STO???
    • Runescape (Free to Play)
    • ESO – going to try this one tonight
    • Games we’ve tried and what we thought (SP means still playing, # means number of us SP)
      • 7 Days to Die – three thumbs up (SP2)

      • Bundles – create bags where you can place items inside; can be stored inside chests and you can mix-and-match
      • Lots of new terrain types – I won’t get into those
      • Terrain limits – it used to be for min and max height y = 0 to y = 255; now y = -64 to 320.  
        • Digging from 0 to -64 will taking longer and you’ll get new varieties of copper, iron, gemstone, deepslate blocks
        • Going above y=255, you’ll encounter new snowy biomes with some of them having life, snow, and/or ice.

Remnant

We found the place of many portals. We entered. We fought. We kicked much butt and it was amazing!!….until it wasn’t. Did a bunch of skulls beat us up?? One comment, we all do have guns. 🙂

  • Satisfactory
    • In Rent and my game we are rocking this planet!! We have drones and are about to harness the power of very dangerous things, among other stuff. We are sort of doing several things at once. A little fracking here, a little nuclear junk there. Don’t worry, you don’t have to live there. 🙂 No telling how this will end anyway.
  • Mass Effect Legendary (ME2) 
    • Is fun, I haven’t rounded up all of my companions yet. My fish are still alive.
