The Damsels Game Cast Episode 166, Bugs Strike Back

Hello! We are the Damsels Game!

The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. Sahba has been diligently gathering gaming news and now we are ready to talk about DDO, Guild Wars 2, Scrap Mechanic, Grounded, and Satisfactory! Plus, we have been busy gamers, playing lots of stuff. Let’s get into it! Thanks so much for listening! 

HERE is the episode! 

This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored by Citidel Fish Food. Because before you kick off that Mass Effect Drive, you have to remember to feed those fish, otherwise, they die and then you will never get them out of the tank.

The Damsels Game Cast Episode 165, All the Updates

Hello! We are the Damsels Game!

The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. Sahba has been diligently gathering gaming news and now we are ready to talk about it! Plus, we have been busy gamers, playing lots of stuff. Let’s get into it! Thanks so much for listening!

    • No emails 🙁
  • Let’s talk videos and comments to videos! 
    • The Damsels Game Cast Ep 164, Destiny 2
      • Breetai Beerloaf – “One of the best things about 7D2D is that I can play anyway I want to.  I think with alpha 20, they have limited those options.  Building bases, killing zombies, doing quests, or just looting POIs. You should be able to do some or all or those. I mean would any player base of any game say “No, I’d rather not have more options.” Like Lessah said even changing the color of a chair is great, but don’t take away options that were already in the game.
    • DDO 
      • A Quest a Day – Ep 242 came out today
        • Since our last episode, Sahbajade did the quests in the Cannith Manufactury, did some quests in Amrath, a couple more in Eveningstar, Epic A Small Problem and The Snitch, finished doing Epic Borderlands, looking for some loot, and then did Epic VON (flagging quests only) and Epic Red Fens.
        • Selected Comment
          • Ep 227 “Treasure Hunt Epic” 
            • John Blackstar – “Good luck with the never ending hunt for gear.”
            • Breetai Beerloaf – “A nice and easy one for you.  Wish you luck on some new gear.”
          • Ep 230 “Watch Your Step”
            • Pineleaf Needles “I think you misunderstand where the runner is going. He doesn’t run to the entrance, but instead runs in the direction of the kobold quarters. Falling back to the entrance guarantees that you will never see the runner. I find that I have to jump over the trap and immediately give chance if I’m to have any chance of killing that runner. I manage it about half the time at Level 1. Based on the fight you had, it looks like it will be a much tougher task at epic.”
          • Ep 237
    • Lessah’s YouTube Channel
      • Grounded Sandbox, Killing AntLions 
  • What we learned/ thoughts for the week:  
    • Lessah
      • Don’t pick up a wolf unless you intend to keep it forever.  
      • (See Icarus how-to videos for details) 
    • Myth: Wolf spiders are mean because they drink too much.
    • Sahba: See comments to videos, above.  I “learned” about the runner but didn’t actually “see” what Pineleaf and the rest are talking about.  Maybe next time…or not, since the runner goes by so quickly.

  1. Question of the show:

When you can’t play computer games like normal, what do you spend your time doing??

  • Before we start!  

 Myth’s Little Game Reviews

The past couple of weeks I completed most of these games. The ones that have an ending anyway.

  • Pedestrian – Not sure I mentioned it but I finished this and it was excellent! I recommend it to anyone looking for some little something to mess around with. I would like to have another or maybe one modeled after the ending to this one. This is a great game!
  • Unpacking – Same thing, fun to poke around with but it’s $20 and I think it only took me “maybe” a couple of hours to be finished, I wasn’t rushing, just watching TV and messing around and the next thing I knew there were the credits. So I really enjoyed it but I wouldn’t pay that much for it. I think I read that they are coming out with some DLC, not sure if they are planning to charge for it though.
  • I am Fish – So cute and super fun about 4 fish friends that get separated and go looking for each other. You get to play each of the fish and everyone but the goldfish has a special ability. I enjoyed playing it very much.

All 3 of these games had beautiful graphics, movement was smooth and easy to handle, and I didn’t run into any glitches. Here’s the thing, these three games are $20 and even the ones that lasted longer than 2 hrs. only lasted around 4 hours. I like to fidget with something while I sit and watch TV and that would have been $60!! I feel like games with no repeatability shouldn’t cost so much. Am I wrong?

  • Slime Rancher – 
  • Clustertruck – I put this in my wishlist and will wait for it to go on sale. It’s only $14.99 but for me this is a $5 game. I will compare it to Plants vs Zombies, actually a little less involved but close enough and a little harder. You are surfing on semi’s and have to remain on until you get to the goal end. The faster you get there the better and you earn coins that you can buy boosts. There are 2 categories of “boosts” and you can equip 1 of each at a time. They are very expensive.
  • Hello Neighbor – 

  • Our two weeks in gaming copycat
  • Icarus
    • I started playing and I am a little disheartened about how slow I am leveling and how the game tells me to seek shelter every day but I am not allowed to build a shelter… wtf. Then I have to cower by the fire all night long and not get XP. Was a big waste of time for those first several game-days. I picked into my rock and waited out the storm/ night. 
      • I had to play almost three real-time hours (three sessions for me) before I was high enough level (level 5) to open up the thatch building tree. 
      • The game let me make a bed before then but it said “need more shelter” on it, so I could not sleep the night away. 
    • The storms are very frequent and annoying, though, I like how they fell trees and then during a storm, your stuff gets damaged. I did not know that at first so I had to pray my house didn’t fall.  ALso, how do you make a door frame? 
    • WHy is the timer counting backwards? 
    • I am shocked Mythery likes this game cause the characters are way too unattractive. 
  • DDO
    • I introduced my nephew to DDO, after we played Minecraft for a bit.
    • Zazo and I are back to 30, doing R10s.
  • Grounded
    • Some. Just because it’s relaxing. 
  • Grounded
    • Have been playing a ton of Grounded and finding and discovering now things is really cool. I like taking on bigger building projects. 
    • I hope I still get to play because my new job isn’t cohesive with Mythery’s schedule. 
  • Grounded
    • Lawnmower idea
      • There needs to be a section of the yard that has a drone lawnmower going part of the day. The mission would be fun to do/ figure out how to turn the lawnmower off. 
    • Lots of game bugs and tweaks that can be done: 
      • Can’t lock a chest, cant label a chest, can’t make signs for a chest
      • Can’t split a stack
      • Can’t see your friend/ join your friend in a game unless the go back to the lobby and then you must restart your whole game

The Damsels Game, Episode 164, Destiny 2

Hello! We are the Damsels Game!

The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. We played Destiny 2 and we are ready to talk about it. Also, do you ever think that a game can’t get any better or worse and then it does both? Suddenly things are going in a completely different direction while you were busy chopping wood. That’s the gist of today’s show, along with gaming news! Thanks so much for listening! 

HERE is the episode! 

This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored by seeds…because just like spider silk, you can’t make those either, and even if you can, there is no guarantee you are getting them back

          3. “If I put this 100-hour-plus game down for a week to play something else, will I be able to slide back for a week to play something else, will I be able to slide back into it, or will my 40-hour playthrough up to this point go to waste?”

        4. How many have Myth and Lessah done??
    2. DDO
      1. No DDO Chronicle until the new DDO.com is ‘up and running,’ according to Cordovan.
    3. ESO – 
      1. Just a reminder you have until April 4 to get the High Isle pre-order Palefrost Elk Fawn pet.  The High Isle Chapter will be available June 6 for PC/Mac and Stadia, June 21 for XBox and PS.
    4. Destiny 2
      1. Steam is having a 15-20% off sale until April 14 but the base game is free.  
  1. Question of the show:

Changing the game discussion: 

When are too many changes and updates to a game too much? There is that “one thing” that might screw up what you thought was the most satisfying part of your gameplay. If it goes away… if your build is ruined or an aspect of play you were enjoying is suddenly gone. Do you quit? 

  • Before we start!  
    • Halo, the TV series – I watched Ep 1.
    • Anyone going to see Uncharted??
    • Bags??

 I got nuthin

  • Our two weeks in gaming copycat
  • 7 Days to Die
    • Alpha 20 brought a lot of cool things with it: 
      • Graphics upgrade
        • Environment looks great
        • There are little things like new sounds that go with hitting different blocks or subtle sparks that fly when you are mining ore. 
        • Zombies look even better. 
        • CHAIRS! 
      • Weapons… 
        • It takes commitment to get and upgrade the good stuff. 
        • Early game pipe weapons are primitive and I assume they are meant to be primitive. I have accepted this. 
      • Farming
        • 7DTD farming is different. I feel like farming/ nesting/ building/ is pretty much pointless for me at this point. 
        • Plants that you grow only give you seeds back at a rate of 50%. It might as well be zero percent. If you plant 3 corn seeds and none of them gives you back a seed… you are screwed. Good luck slowly making your farm bigger or making cornbread for travel rations. Good luck growing aloe for bandages. The return on the investment isn’t worth the trouble you have to go through to get the crops going. 
        • Why should I spend hard earned points in skills like farming or master chef when the new changes have made it darn near impossible for me to be creative and put variety in my apocalypse diet? 
          • I love 7 Days to Die but this is the hill I am willing to die on. As far as I know, farming and cooking weren’t that popular to begin with and were far from game-breaking. Now the changes have made it ten times as hard so why should I bother? I feel like my hand is being forced. The game wants me to be a straight up wandering scavenger and it’s not as fun for me as making over a space/ building a defensible compound and making a working farm. 
        • I am not ready to quit over this yet because I haven’t made it to a game stage that has shown me improvement. I am hoping things get better. So far… this sucks. 
  • DDO
    • Sahba epic and iconic TR’d, now 24 Bard, still 52 reaper pts (2,776,941; +613266)
    • Sahbajade is 23. I changed her build from 13R 5F 1D to 18M 2R.  She was dying way too much with the other build.  Not enough power to self healing.  
    • Caaryn is 11 (didn’t play).
  • Grounded
  • Pedestrian – Not sure I mentioned it but I finished this and it was excellent! I recommend it to anyone looking for some little something to mess around with. I would like to have another or maybe one modeled after the ending to this one.
  • Unpacking – Same thing, fun to poke around with but it’s $20 and I think it only took me “maybe” a couple of hours to be finished, I wasn’t rushing, just watching TV and messing around and the next thing I knew there were the credits. So I really enjoyed it but I wouldn’t pay that much for it. I think I read that they are coming out with some DLC, not sure if they are planning to charge for it though.
  • I am Fish – So cute and super fun about 4 fish friends that get separated and go looking for each other. You get to play each of the fish and everyone but the goldfish has a special ability. I enjoyed playing it.

Here’s the thing, all of these games are $20 and even the ones that lasted longer than 2 hrs. only lasted around 4 hours. I like to fidget with something while I sit and watch TV and that would have been $60!! I feel like games with no repeatability shouldn’t cost so much. Am I wrong?

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) 

  1. Let’s Talk STO and The Ascent
    1. Ascent – 
      1. awesome game, weird on PC. Looks great, sounds great, great voices. Not for me. 
      2. Agreed.  I like the story but hate, hate, hate the moving around and combat.  It’s Diablo-like but not Diablo.  They made it worse with the movement.  Why? It could have been so much better if they had kept the Diablo way of doing it.
    2. STO
      1. Combat is… special. This game feels ok until you step onto the holodeck for phaser training and realize the whole academy should be dead if . I’m ok with the hot bar, the key-bindings, the instructions. The combat tutorial made my soul hurt. Aiming, crouching, and shooting are not intuitive the way they should be. And unlike Conan Exiles, this learning curve isn’t fixable for me. 
      2. This reminds me of Mass Effect if Mass Effect also had Autism and special needs. 
      3. I like that you could tab target but the cool down between firing and the lack of tactics really took me back a step. The klingons appeared in the transporter room and by all rights, they should have charged and batliffed me while I was standing there with no place to hide. 
      4. How’d the Klingons get on our ship with the shields raised in the tutorial??? hand-to-hand is a mess; right-clicking to shoot doesn’t work; sometimes it shoots; sometimes it doesn’t. Tab targeting works and then it stops. My target goes away even though the target is still alive.  Why?  I keep having to tab target the same target.  Space combat is even worse.  Don’t like it.  Don’t like moving in space.  Just don’t like it.
  2. Games we should give a go 
    1. Path of Exile or POE2 (Free to Play)
    2. Destiny 2 (Free to Play)
    3. No Man’s Sky
    4. Runescape (Free to Play)
  1. Games we’ve tried and what we thought (SP means still playing, # means number of us SP)
    1. 7 Days to Die – three thumbs up (SP2)
    2. (The) Ascent – three sideways thumbs
    3. Conan Exiles – three thumbs up (SP3)
    4. Creativerse – one thumb up (SP1)
    5. DDO – three thumbs up (SP1)
    6. ESO – three thumbs up (SP3)
    7. Grounded – three thumbs up (SP3)
    8. Guild Wars 2 – three thumbs up (SP3)
    9. Minecraft – three thumbs up (SP3)
    10. Neverwinter – three thumbs down
    11. Neverwinter Nights – three thumbs down
    12. Remnant from the Ashes – three thumbs up (SP3)
    13. Satisfactory – M/S thumbs up (SP2)
    14. Scrap Mechanic – M/S thumbs up (SP2)
    15. STO – three thumbs down
    16. Subnautica – three thumbs up (SP3)
    17. Tom Clancy’s The Division – three thumbs up (SP1)
    18. Valheim – three thumbs down
    19. WoW – L thumbs up 
  1. Games We Play News – Just a couple so.
    1. DDO
      1. To get your Greater Elixirs of Discovery (for owning races and classes prior to the Anniversary event), talk to Jubilee on the bottom floor of the Eberron Hall of Heroes.  Click on each race and class.  She’ll let you know if you should get it or not.  Make sure you are on the server you want the elixir, as it’s one per race/class gamewide.
      2. There’s a nice cookie from the event that will give you +1 Festive bonus to all stats for 10 party favors, if you don’t have the +2 augments.
    2. ESO – 
      1. ESO: High Isle available for pre-purchase (available 6 Jun)
        1. Get a palefrost elf fawn pet with pre-purchase until 4 apr 22.
    3. GW2 – End of Dragons expansion arrived!  
  1. Question of the show: This is from my twitter: You and some gaming friends are stranded on a desert island (like desert island discs <G>), with a game table and dice.  You can take one RPG rule set, one board game, and one deck of cards (for playing, not as a resource).  What do you take?

HERE is the Episode!

This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored by severed limbs. There are endless uses for these things. All you have to do is well… you know. Loved by many animals in Conan Exiles, severed limbs are a fresh, nutritious treat. Get yours…theirs… today!

The Damsels Game, Episode 160, Conan Exiles

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. We have been roped into the wide world of Conan Exiles and now we have to really dig into what it all means. I don’t even know what the word “Venerate” means. How am I supposed to do it for the gods? What does a baby turtle eat? So far, gruel isn’t really doing the trick. All these questions are explored, and more in today’s cast. Thanks so much for listening! 

Here is the Episode Download Link

Lessah takes her first Thrall in Conan Exiles

Conan Exiles, No Cuddling!

This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored by Gruel. A good source of nutrients, gruel is the cornerstone of any thrall operation. If they’re hungry, feed them gruel. If the wheel of pain isn’t spinning, just use the gruel to grease the wheel. Gruel. It’s what’s for dinner. 

Intro:

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) 

  1. Tidbits of News
    1. Microsoft pushes Edge (from Maximum PC Jan 22)
    2. .
    3. .
  1. Let’s Talk – Conan Exiles
    1. What do we think overall
      1. Overall, it’s a really good game. Things I like:
        1. Crafting, the survival aspects, weather is a thing, Avatars are pretty sexy. Gameplay is fairly challenging. Learning nuances of the game, like how to make things, isn’t just laid out for you, you have to want it and be interested. You can dye your clothes. 
        2. But…
          1. The combat system seems really slow to me. My character will go through attack animations and if I am not facing the right direction…well…I’m attacking air. I can’t course correct while that animation is going on. It’s also really hard to change weapons after someone has already engaged you. The only way I have found to do that along with drinking a potion for health, is to retreat and then go back in. 
          2. The biggest issue I have with combat is…strafing and flanking an opponent during combat. Maybe it’s me, maybe I just don’t have it all figured out yet, but I can name six other survival crafting games that have a combat system I like better, that will allow you to strafe and flank a target during close quarters combat, thus giving you more options than just standing there and taking those hits on the chin. 
            1. (7 Days to Die, Ark Survival Evolved, Minecraft, Subsistence, Grounded, Valheim)
    2. Combat system vs other games
  1. Games I think we should give a go 
    1. Halo: The Master Chief Collection or Halo: Infinite (Dec 8)
    2. Deep Rock Galactic – FPS with mining dwarves ($29.99 Steam) 
      1. Dead last on my list. I have watched my husband play this game a lot and I don’t really like what I have seen so far. 
    3. Path of Exile or POE2 (Free to Play)
    4. Destiny 2 (Free to Play)
    5. STO???
    6. Runescape (Free to Play)
  2. Games we’ve tried and what we thought (SP means still playing, # means number of us SP)
    1. 7 Days to Die – three thumbs up (SP2)
    2. Conan Exiles – three thumbs up (SP3)
    3. Creativerse – one thumb up (SP1)
    4. DDO – three thumbs up (SP1)
    5. ESO – three thumbs up (SP3)
    6. Grounded – three thumbs up (SP3)

  1. Games We Play News
    1. Ark Love Evolved – 
    2. DDO
      1. Snowpeaks Festival has begun.  
    3. ESO – 
      1. ESO: High Isle available for pre-purchase (available 6 Jun)
        1. Get a palefrost elf fawn pet with pre-purchase until 4 apr 22.
    4. GW2 – Lunar New Year 2022 is Live
    5. Steam Lunar New Year Sale
      1. The Outer Worlds is on sale in Steam (67% off). I got this for Sahba Jade (surprise!) I started playing it but my time is limited and Conan and Ark and Civ V are taking all my attention. It’s an open world action adventure RPG (single player) that reminds me a lot of Fallout New Vegas. 
  1. Question of the show: Desert Island Game Discs – Which eight games would you take to your desert island? (Assume there is a solar powered computer on the island)
    1. Lessah: Bioshock, Red Dead Redemption 2, The Witcher 3, Civilization V, 7 Days to Die, Subnautica, Subnautica Below Zero, Mass Effect Legendary (that’s three games in one)
    2. Sahba: TC: The Divison 2; Elder Scrolls Skyrim; Minecraft; Divinity: Original Sin 2; Subnautica; Civ V; Outer Worlds; The Witcher 3
  1. Mythery: 7DTD, Mass Effect Legendary, Borderlands 2, Death Stranding, Myst, Icarus, Far Cry 5, Outer Space thingy
  • Before we start!  

Conan Exiles 

We built a house. We learned to take thralls. We explored a very little bit and we learned how to steal pets. 

  • Our two weeks in gaming copycat
  • The Outer Wilds – I just started collecting quests, I have nothing at all. Hopefully I will get around to playing it this month. No promises. OT is calling and I need money. 
  • Ark, Ark, Ark
    • ARK – I decided I needed a Manta…then I decided I needed four mantas:  
      • We had an idea for a cage that you could trap a manta in and then feed it gel before it stings you to death. The results were ok. 
        • Then I decided we needed to breed the mantas. At the same time, we are raising three new Wyverns. Aaaaaaaaand….. We found an Alpha Fire Wyvern and now Mythery wants to kill it and I want to leave it alone. 
  • DDO
    • Sahba is 30, doing some R6s, trying to get reaper XP.  
    • Sahbajade is about to do Necro III.
    • Caaryn (shortsword build) is 5.

The Damsels Game Episode 159, Wyvern Milk

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 all over again. Oh wait…Mythery and Lessah can barely get our of Ark long enough for the show. Why? WYVERNS! Stick around because we talk about them in depth! Thanks so much for listening! 

Link to the episode!

This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored by Wyvern Milk. Need milk to feed your growing baby wyvern? No problem, just get some wyvern milk in the creepiest way possible from the lady wyverns out in the wild. Just trap them, shoot them, milk them before they wake up (you gotta be fast!) steal all that milk and spirit it away as fast as you can to your nearest preserving bin. Don’t forget to add salt…Mythery!

Intro:  

The Damsels Recorded Live on Sunday, January 2nd. This is our 159th 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. Among other sources. More on this later

Sahba Jade restraining order: 

Sahba, The Giants of Threnal have asked me to issue you an order to stay away from their caves. Quote: “We are just trying to live our lives here. Those missing adventurers? We haven’t seen them. Get out!” 

  • Let’s talk videos and comments to videos! 
    • DDO 
      • A Quest a Day – Ep 123 came out yesterday
        • In the past two weeks, Sahbajade has finished up Threnal, done the Pit with some friends, and started on the walk-ups in the Desert.  
      • Selected Comment
        • Most of the comments came from The Pit video but my favorite was from Brian Stevens quoting “Do we all have FF?”  
        • Thanks for all the comments.  I do read them all.
    • Lessah’s YouTube Channel
    • Lessah’s TikTok 
  • What we learned/ thoughts for the week:
    • Lessah:Masks Work, Vaccines Work. 
      • Hubs got Covid from a non-mask wearing co-worker, he tested positive and I was in close quarters with him for 2 days before that and then in the same house with him/ under quarantine all week. I had one day where I thought I had a sore throat and a very light headache, it turned out to be Cedar-related/ allergies. I tested negative for Covid-19. 
        • Here’s why: Both of us were masked and he was isolated in another room from the onset of his symptoms. 
          • Side note: Daughter was like, “Mom, you don’t have to wear your mask, only he does.” I was like: “Shut up and put your mask on.” Five days later, she thanked me, because her test was negative too. 
        • I had a booster 3 months ago, so I am at peak antibodies right now. 
    • Myth:    Since I am editing the podcast now, people should probably listen live AND download it to listen again.
    • Sahba: I CAN get too cold.

  1. Games We Play News
    1. ARK – Raptor Clause has come and gone, here is what we got out of it: 
      1. Sweaters, Hats, cosmetics, buffs that helped with wyvern wrangling (let’s get into that!)
      2. We have learned so much about Wyvern hatching/ raising/ milking. Here are some things to make your life easier (assuming there are 2 of you):
        1. Build a cage with a solid foundation so you can close your roof, we didn’t and it got a little sketch sometimes. Build that cage out of stone, not wood.  
        2. When you find your chosen lady, make sure whatever bait bird you are riding is on passive and following you. We had a Little bird and a pteranodon kill a low-level wyvern (each) because they were not on passive. 
        3. When you catch your female, milk it FAST once it falls down, she won’t stay down long. Let her get up, stick around and watch her from a safe distance for 2 hours… and milk her again. This way you will have 10 milks that will last for at least two iterations of care, sometimes 3 depending on what the Wyvern asks for. 
          1. About Milk:
            1. Make sure you have salt both in your inventory and at the destination and already in the preserving bin. Salts stack up to 6 and they go bad faster than you think. (I have 20 minutes for each salt…you might think…until they are gone and your milk is ruined. 
    2. Also in ARK – the New Years Event
      1. Gifts will contain a collection of of skins from past events
      2. Drop rates of rare, very rare, and legendary chibis will be dialled to over 9000.
      3. Follow the link to add command lines for unofficial servers.
  1. DDO
    1. The 5th season of hardcore league is underway – 1 Dec 21 – 1 Feb 22
    2. Festivult has arrived – Festivult coins are now in game (for those not on the hardcore server) and the Jester has arrived to give you cookies for the coins, with new cookies and new benefits.
  2. ESO – 
    1. New Life Festival (holiday event) began 16 Dec and continues through 4 Jan.  
  1. GW2 – Wintersday Celebration 14 Dec – 3 Jan
  2. Satisfactory – FICS-MAS runs from 1 Dec – 18 Jan
  1. Question of the show: Best new game you played in 2021?  Best game you played in 2021?
  • Before we start!

Hello! We are the Damsels Game!

There are a lot of holiday events in games we like but Lessah and Mythery by extension are playing only one. Ark Survival Evolved is a harsh taskmaster and those eggs don’t steal themselves. A lot has happened, so let’s get into it! Thanks so much for listening!

  • <y professional advice on sleep: 
    • I think the cherry juice and brazil nuts help me get better/ deeper sleep. SOMETHING is working. 
    • You might need a sleep study if…
      • If your bed partner has ever shaken you awake because they thought you might have died. 
      • If you have ever been kicked out of the bedroom because of your snoring. (if they leave, it doesn’t count)
      • If you see a stoplight as a nap opportunity… omg, please get a sleep study.

Dear Sahba Jade, You recently visited Tangleroot Gorge and Splinterskull. Chief Ungurz wishes to thank you personally. However, there is a small matter of how many endangered Worgs/ Wolves/ and Spiders you exterminated while assisting the Chief. He has handed the matter over to the “Tangleroot Gorge Wildlife Preservation Society” and they will be contacting you very soon. No formal charges have been brought against you as of today, but we advise you to seek advice from your own attorneys in Stormreach. Regards, Darguun Legal Team

      • Selected Comment
        • John Blackstar noticed I grab all the collectables except from treasure bags and wondered why.  My response was that the bags on the ground are things I have hundreds, possibly thousands, of … and I’m lazy.
        • MR Silent, in response to “Sahba becomes Premium” noted “I forgot what you get with VIP.”
        • Brian Stevens, for Ep 106 White Plume Mountain “On loot drops if you need caster stuff play a ranger and if need ranger stuff play a caster never fails it’s how they make the value of shared bank almost a nesc.”

The Damsels Game, Episode 157, Becoming Mando

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, and here to tell us about it, is Mythery! 

This week’s featured shop is : Tony’s Terrific Tools! Tony agreed to pay extra for his ad if Lessah would sing this little jingle he wrote for the shop. Lessah said she would be more than happy to do this for Tony even if he didn’t pay extra. I said that Tony still has to pay and I want to know exactly what IS more than happy?

Sung to the tune of Sponge Bob Square Pants Theme Song

Intro:  

The Damsels Recorded Live on Sunday, November 20. This is our 157th 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. Among other sources. 

Jibber Jabber Time! 

  • Emails
    • From Mradhon Vis, about the Brazil Nuts
      • You can buy them separately! And you too can ignore them for months at a time.
    • Email 2
      • My name is Delera, you recently freed me from my prison where I was being held by Giddeon. Thank you SO MUCH! You are truly a hero of Stormreach. 

Please see the attached invoice for damages sustained to my family’s tomb while you and your adventuring party were there. Thanks again. Have a wonderful life and a pretty good rest of your day. 

Respectfully,

Delera 

The amount you owe: 100,000,000 Platinum

Please make payable to: Delera Omaren Family Fund

  • Let’s talk videos and comments to videos! 
    • DDO 
      • A Quest a Day – Ep 81 came out yesterday
        • In the past four weeks, Sahba finished up Irestone Inlet, House D Chain (BoB, The Black Loch, Storm the Beaches, The Tide Turns), The Night Revels (Delera’s Graveyard, Under New Ravagement, The Kobolds’ New Ringleader), Stormcleave Outpost with special guest Mythery (this ep was mentioned in the DDO Chronicle issue 448), and the first three quests in Assault on Splinterskull in Tangleroot Gorge.
        • Plus, two extra videos showing the lesser TR done at 10.  Most comments were from these.
      • Selected Comments
        • Delera’s Tomb – The Missing Party
          • Breetai Beerloaf explained in the comments how to do the optionals, including the underwater gate/swimming part, with hirelings who can cast summon monster.  Sahbajade didn’t attempt that so thanks for the info Breetai.  I’ll give it a go on Sahba when she gets there.
        • Delera’s Tomb – Thrall of the Necromancer
          • I had asked if I should continue on to 30, or try a short sword or kukri?? (I think that’s what I said) build TRing at 20.  
            • John Blackstar thinks both builds ‘sound interesting but I am curious to see if you can make it to 30 with this one.”
            • Drew Rankin agrees to go to 30, and also comments that the only viable build for short swords since Vistani Knife Fighter is a swashbuckler bard or in offhand as a thrower.  Hmmm, does that sound like a challenge??? Oh, he said ‘viable,’ didn’t he <G>?
        • Tangleroot Pt 1 – First Strike
          • John Blackstar mentions that if you go through the portcullis, the rooms on the one side have spiders, scorpions on the other.  If you go the scorpions in the first quest, through the door in their area at the bottom is a tunnel and human prisoner who talk to you and then dies.  On the next quest, you fight his zombie.  On the next, his skeleton.  There is a chest in every quest, even the first.  Random loot. 
        • Stormcleave Outpost – Myth and I were commenting on the permanent scarecrow hireling’s ‘bird feet’
          • Drew Rankin wrote that Baba Lysaga’s hut has bird feet, like Baba Yaga.
            • My reply “Ha! I think I’ve been too busy fighting Baba Yaga to notice her feet.”
        • O hell yeah asked how many lives Sahbajade has:
          • Three racial past lives, all gnome.  I thought the extra halfling AP would come in handy.
        • TR attempt at level 10
          • Danny Hickling – Sorry to see this for you, I am holding off on any reincarnations at the moment. One of the guys in our group did a TR and has lost everything. He had a +8 Supreme tome of ability and a bunch of skill tomes. They are all gone and he hasn’t had any response from DDO support in well over a week.
          • Thazara of Orien – I had the same thing happen on my lvl 30. I leveled up to 14 before I realised it wasn’t normal behaviour. Relogging mid leveling up fixed it, but I had already lost a bunch of points and couldn’t take the feat I wanted at 15. I’ve sent in a ticket asking for a new heart but I haven’t heard back yet
          • Daniel Horne – that moment when you realise everything is gone. Unfortunately I didn’t realise until I’d knocked out a couple of levels, nothing came back at relog, and now I’m stuck in customer service purgatory. Maybe a LR will fix it? While I haven’t been as blessed with them from rolls there’s a couple taking up space in the bank. But I’d hate for it to fail and be another reason that it can’t be fixed. There’s plenty of advice on the forums about the ‘correct’ way to reincarnate, things like shutting down the client instead of just relogging. I’m not super convinced but if there is some sort of arcane timing to it that needs to be invoked that should be on the player.
          • My replies: 
            • I’m just lucky I have plenty of hearts that I ‘won’ as rewards from daily dice rolls (either gold or silver, when I was VIP and had gold rolls every day).  Even after using a bunch, and I mean a bunch, of hearts for heroic, epic, and iconic TRs, plus some for changing up my characters, I still have 7 Lesser, 3 +5s, 4 +20s, 3 Heroics, and 8 Iconic – all from daily dice rolls.
            • I almost always shut down the game entirely before reincarnating. I would say ‘always’ but James Bond said Never and that kicked him in the bum, didn’t it :).
      • Lessah and Mythery are doing the November MC Hardcore Challenge. Will we make it? Four episodes left in this month, Mondays/ Fridays. I confess…
      • I have 7 chapters of Far Cry 6 with Friendly Necro and I am loving it! He is such a Himbo when we play and I am here for it. 
    • The Force is strong with Damsels Lessah on TikTok
  • What we learned/ thoughts for the week:
    • Lessah: Mythery is very grumpy when she gives up sugar. 
    • Myth:   I have too much time on my hands. 🙂
    • Sahba

Question of the show: ..

Conan and Deep Rock Galactic

  • Before we start!  
    •   Interviewing Mando. 
      • Minecraft?
      • What’s it like playing with….
      • Illagers? 
      • How many other games? 
      • Broken arm??????  
    • I need a moment with Mythery! 
      • It’s time for 4… (thanks TikTok) 

Grounded

As we pointed out last time, Grounded had an update that required us to begin again. It seems that happens sometimes, especially with new games when they have a big update it seems. Sometimes the new things don’t spawn in the old game and sometimes things that were there disappear. The latter being the problem here. So we got to work and quickly tried to get back to the point we were when things went pear shaped. That only took us about 3 play sessions (not too bad) since we know a little more than we did when we started last time. During our twitch session we collected a bunch of supplies, cleared some ground and started our house, and collected a lot of what we needed from the pond for some underwater exploration. Since we have played some since then we have nearly completed the house, crafted the rest of our underwater gear, and now have gas masks so we can go into the HAZE! We still need to craft some more level 2 tools, gather some molars, and get some new skills! Also we will be able to chop down things we couldn’t with level 1 axes. Things are about to get real interesting!

  • Our two weeks in gaming copycat
  • Minecraft – The World’s Longest tunnel. 
    • Minecraft with my nephew – would it surprise you to know our playstyles are different?
    • Minecraft, the card game – with my nephew, sister, and brother-in-law.
  • Satisfactory
  • Far Cry 6
    • Having a great time, except for when I don’t get a little dog. Go watch my videos! Or at least my TikTok! 
  • Grounded
    • With Lessah, Myth, and Sahbajade
    • Grounded with Tae and Lessah
  • DDO
    • Lots of DDO “A Quest A Day”  so I have episodes in the bank since I’m heading out of town.
    • Plus, Sahba (my main character, since she has the most PL??), is now 5, running E-R4, depending on quest and mood.  I don’t understand why my Ghostbane weapons aren’t working on Reapers!!!!  She has two – one dagger has a ruby of ghostbane slotted.  The other is the Spectral Dagger level 4.  
  • Borderlands 
  • Ark Survival Evolved time….

The Damsels Game, Episode 156, Elder Scrolls Online

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. Some of the Highpoints (Besides Elder Scrolls Online) are Dungeons and Dragons Online, Grounded, Far Cry 6, Halo, Master Cheif Edition, Satisfactory, and Borderlands 3. Spoiler warnings for Borderlands 3 and maybe Dune… Thanks so much for listening! 

http://www.podcastgarden.com/episode/the-damsels-game-156_165835

This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored, and here to tell us about it, is Mythery! 

This week’s featured shop is the Skyblock Mall Food Court:

Come eat at the Skyblock Mall Food Court where all of the food is locally sourced from the Skyblock Mall vendors and each week one of the vendors prepares the food. This week our chef will be Fred from Fred and Frodo’s Fabulous Fresh Fish. Fred will be making his famous chocolate chip cookies. Next week the chef on deck will be Biff from Barry and Biff’s Big Little Books. Biff will be making his chicken and cherry mash. Oh, it says here that Barry will be on hand to read prayers. Hmm, well isn’t that nice of him. Well, folks I guess there will be some extra festivities in the food court that week. So get on down to the Skyblock Mall Food Court today!

Intro:  

The Damsels Recorded Live on Sunday, October 23rd. This is our 156th 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. Among other sources. 

Jibber Jabber Time! 

  • Emails
    • “The Kobolds wanted you to know that they were not underperforming, they said “the leader was under-leading.” They said they hate you and will never operate at 100% until you make things right for “what happened in water works.” I don’t know what that means. Just passing the message along!
  • Let’s talk videos and comments to videos! 
    • DDO 
      • A Quest a Day – Ep 53 came out yesterday
        • In the past two weeks, Sahba finished up Keep on the Borderlands, STK, and 3BC.
  • What we learned/ thoughts for the week:
    • Lessah:In your Xbox Console companion, it has your real name next to your player name by default. So if you are playing a game like Halo Reach or Minecraft Windows 10, your real name just pops up. 
    • Myth:   I need some tart cherry juice.
    • Sahba: Sahba is still dying more than she should.  I’m going to have to fix her feats and enhancements to do more self healing. Even with all the hirelings, she doesn’t get healed.  <G>

  • Before we start!  
    • Squid Game.  
      • Mystery homework – watch episode 1
      • I watched

Elder Scrolls Online

We like this game. I think it was in a good position to be liked considering the three games we had tried just before were so bad. Ok, so they liked one of them (that one was number 3 so there ya go lol). Character movement is smooth, I can actually move when I am fighting, and there are some choices when leveling. The main quest line seems interesting and there are a ton of side quests to do if you need a break from the storyline. Teleportation IS a thing! Once you have found a teleport place you can hop between them at will for free to your heart’s content. The only time it’s going to cost you money is if you are stuck out in the middle of nowhere or are just too lazy to walk/ride to the nearest telepost station. Speaking of riding, you get a mount at level 10 which is available to all of your characters. Something we learned when we were questing together was that questing together is sometimes very difficult. Apparently some (or all, not sure) of the quests are played out in a random fashion. The goals and ultimate result are the same but getting there is different. Example: We got onto a ship to meet with a guy, they went down into the ship and found him tied to a bed. I l was separated from them and when I went down in the ship no one was there. I traveled to another city and found my guy tied up in a house in that city. The quest ended up the same but we didn’t do it together. I think it is kind of cool that the quest is exactly the same every time you have to do it but I think if you are partied you should be able to stay with your party. Other than that I have been having a lot of fun playing ESO. There is a Halloween event going on right now and we are going to step in and check it out for a bit before we move on to playing Grounded tonight. 

  • Our two weeks in gaming copycat
  • Halo
  • Satisfactory
    • We started a game with Rent and Tae. I am enjoying it very much! We are in an area where pretty much all of the resources we need are at our fingertips. So far I have only played this game with 1 other person at a time, this is much different and I like it. 
  • Far Cry 6
    • Ep 1 on YouTube – Lessah yells at FriendlyNecro for five mins!
  • Grounded
    • Grounded had an update which forced us to delete our game and start a new one.
  • DDO
  • Borderlands (SPOILERS)
    • I’ve been having so much fun playing this game with Patrick. I really love all of those crazy weapons! The story is good in this one too but I’m not sure it’s possible to top Handsome Jack. We have been fighting/chasing the twins around this whole time. People have died, main characters that I wasn’t expecting to die died. So we are fighting them and we kill the sister. I guess I should have known it would go down like this. The dweeb of a brother is the one I always expected to die. He is so stupid and such a dork but he has been collecting all of the powers lately and so there ya go. We kill her.  And it’s the end, it’s talking about Borderlands 4 and when it’s coming out and there is this countdown and it’s about to roll credits and then all of a sudden BAM! Fake out! Not over at all…..Geeze! It was so good! Best fake out ever. I mean I wasn’t prepared and I was shocked but I was like…ok I guess that’s that. So, with that said, I think we are pretty close to the end lol but it’s not over yet!

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!

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)
      • Creativerse – one thumb up (SP1)
      • DDO – three thumbs up (SP1)
      • Grounded – three thumbs up (SP3)
      • Guild Wars 2 – three thumbs up (SP3)
      • Minecraft – three thumbs up (SP3)
      • Neverwinter – three thumbs down
      • Neverwinter Nights – three thumbs down

      • Tom Clancy’s The Division – three thumbs up (SP1)
      • Valheim – three thumbs down
      • WoW – L/S thumbs up (SP1)
  • Games We Play News
  • GW2 – Shadow of the Mad King is live
    • Oct 5-12
    • Bonus XP
    • Get a character to level 10 during the event and receive your choice of a special weapon that will increase in power along with you on the way to level 80!
    • Minecraft 1.18 Caves & Cliffs update (Holiday 2021)
      • 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.
  • Subnautica is half off right now ($14.99); Below Zero is 25% off ($22.49)

Question of the show: What is your 10 out of 10 game?

Lessah: Guess

Sahba guesses Subnautica

Sahba: DDO

  • Before we start!  
    • Squid Game. It’s WOW. Crazy. Only on episode 3.  
      • Mystery homework – watch episode 1

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. 🙂

TDG in Remnant From the Ashes, Eyeless One

  • Our two weeks in gaming copycat
  • I have a confession. 
  • 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. 
      • I looked up how much a model of the Normandy is and it is EXPENSIVE. Sorry Rent2Pwn!

The Damsels Game, Episode 154 Obsessions and Ethics in Games

Hello! We are the Damsels Game!

The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. It’s been a few weeks but we are back! Break’s over and now it’s time to talk about all the games we were playing on hiatus. The Damsels do love a good game sale. Thanks so much for listening! 

Episode Link http://www.podcastgarden.com/episode/the-damsels-game-ep-154_165482

This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored by the Skyblock Mall Experience. The Villagers have consensually relocated for your shopping convenience. Come on down to the mall and shop!  This week’s featured shop is:

Bob’s Beautiful Banners! We have rainbow flags, flower flags, banners with your castle colors. You dream it and we will darn it. Fly your freak flag now! With a flag from Bob’s Beautiful Banners.

Intro:  

The Damsels Recorded Live on Sunday, September 26th. This is our 154th show.  We put shows out whenever we can, you can listen via iTunes, Podcast Addict, Our Website, DamselsofDDO.com or our home at Podcast Garden.com. Among other sources. 

Jibber Jabber Time! 

  • What we learned/ thoughts for the week:
    • Lessah: I realized that video game bread crumbs tell the story behind the story of a game. I.e. When a game engine seems very similar to a game you already like…it might not be a coincidence.  
    • Myth:  We need an !. 
    • Sahba: The chair matters.

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) 

News

  • DDO PLayers News News
    • Lessah and Rent were on DDO Players News – Gen Con edition
      • My one rant – why did Drac go??? 35000 people were there, and some were unvaccinated!!!!
      • Good episode, otherwise, as usual 🙂 Here’s the link.
    • Also, DDO Players News hit 300 episodes!

Mag news

  • From PC Gamer (Nov 2021) – 
    • A War Thunder fan thought one of the tanks was inaccurate so linked classified mil docs to prove it.
    • Tech Triumph – A stainless steel footbridge, weighing 4.9 tons, across a canal in Amsterdam, has been made using 3D printers.
    • Remember that Steam Deck we talked about, the Valve handheld with SteamOS with support for Windows games?  It’s going to have a battery life of two to eight hours.  Ummm, what???
    • Highs & Lows – Thanks to S. Korea’s Shutdown Law, Minecraft now has an adults-only rating and S. Koreans need to be 19 to buy it. This only affects PC downloaders, not handheld or console.  
  • Massively OP (online, 23 Sep 21) – ranked the GW2 professions from best to worst. This is not based on “playability, damage, or meta popularity. This ranking is purely based on originality and general design concepts …”
    • Mesmer
    • Engineer
    • Revenant
    • Necromancer
    • Guardian
    • Thief
    • Warrior
    • Ranger
    • Elementalist
    • Commando
  • GameInformer – according to the readers’ section, readers want more PC games on console.  OK, the only reason I can see for this is if you don’t have a PC, right???
  • Games I think we should give a go 
    • Wildermyth (9/10 IGN; 90 PC Gamer; 5/5 Eurogamer) RPG/Adventure game
    • Halo: The Master Chief Collection ($39.99 Steam) or Halo: Infinite (Dec 8)
    • Deep Rock Galactic – FPS with mining dwarves ($29.99 Steam) 
    • Path of Exile or POE2 (Free to Play)
    • World of Warcraft (Free to level 20)
    • Destiny 2 (Free to Play)
    • STO???
  • GW2 
  • LOTRO – free quests with coupon LOTROQUESTS2021 – quests, missions, and regions – through Nov 30th. lotro.com/en/getready
  • Medieval Dynasty is out of early access and on sale to celebrate.  Also, Toplitz Productions, the publisher, is going to have a Wild West Dynasty sometime in 2022.
  • Phasmophobia – the ghosts are now smarter in the newest update
  • Scrap Mechanic – underground digging and exploration but only in the new location, if I’ve read the devblog correctly.  But still, digging!
  • Valheim – new mod lets you put tamed wolves to work.

Question of the show: In the GameInformer Reader Response from last month, they asked if a game has taken over their life and become an obsession, so we’ll start with that.  Has a game taken over your life and become an obsession?  

  • Before we start!  
    • RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars – I just thought I would mention that I watched and it was GREAT as usual but since Lessah didn’t watch there won’t be any chit chat about it. I just wanted to say that it has moved (yet again) to Paramount ++. As far as I know that is the only place to watch it. I suppose maybe you can pay by the episode somewhere.
    • Future man. I loved the James Cameron Episode! The show is getting a lot better. I had forgotten about Corey Hart until I heard “Never Surrender” started playing in the background. I remembered most of it! 

Minecraft

We built a mall! Skyblock Mall is open and ready to supply all of your shopping needs. With 3 color coded buildings connected by a lovely glass enclosed walkway. The main building is located directly over the fishing hole. It hosts Fred and Frodo’s Fabulous Fresh Fish and is the hub for the pink, purple, and magenta wings. The pink wing is the home of Martel’s Marvelous Maps, Bob’s Beautiful Banners, Patrick’s Potent Potions, and Barry and Biff’s Big Little Book Store, The purple wing contains Alex and Wick’s Wonderful Armor and Weapons, Paul’s Perfect Produce Market, Felix Fletcher’s Accurate Arrows, and Meaty Meats by Maxx. Finally, the magenta wing boasts the delicious food court as well as Manuel’s Marvelous Masonry, Tony’s Terrific Tools, and Wolfe and Arthur’s Awesome Weapons and Armor. 

While I was finishing off the mall decor, Lessah went looking for a jungle. We wanted a jungle badly. She searched high, she searched low, she searched far, she searched wide, she searched about 8000 blocks away and what she found was a flower forest. While we still wanted a jungle very very very much we also like flower forests a lot! Plus it was quite a ways away and although we had already put up 2 Nether portals we had not yet found a fortress. So what was a girl to do I ask? I’ll tell you. There was only one thing she could do, the only logical thing … she made a portal!

To add to our Bastion find, Lessah found a fortress! So we set out forging a road/path from our new portal/safehouse (the 3rd one) in the flower forest to the fortress. This has to be the longest road we have ever built in Minecraft. It’s definitely the longest one in the Nether. We have pretty much taken the danger out of traveling to the fortress. Obviously we can’t remove all danger but this path has walls on both sides and proper stairs for your up and down needs. And many many torches to chase away the darkness. Building was, however, very dangerous! So much lava! Over and under and next to but that was the easy part. The worst part was dealing with the Gast’ and even though they don’t always drop a tear, I think we managed to come home with 9. There are still some fine touches I would like to do to it but it is travelable. Safehouse to safehouse. Just in case anyone is worried, Pineleaf found a very small jungle about 10,000 blocks away and has brought back samples of trees and bamboo so we can grow our own little jungle. The following videos ponder some ethical questions about the treatment of the villagers! If you are interested in finding out about abductions, terrorization, and subjugation these videos are a must see for you.

It Takes a Village

It Takes a Village part 2

Damsels and DDO Players Episode 4

  • Our two weeks in gaming copycat
  • Minecraft with DDO Players
    • We are ready to raid…a fortress. 
  • 7 Days To Die
    • Shared Server
      • So much work to do. Our new house looks SO GOOD!
      • OMG Finding these new houses is so much fun! I just love finding a place I haven’t been yet and when it’s a place we are going to fix up and live in that all the better. This new place is turning out amazing! I can’t wait until 20 comes out but I hope that doesn’t mean we have to give this up. Is that unrealistic?
  • Satisfactory
    • In Rent and my game we have found a geyser and have a geothermal electric generator. We also have jet packs. They are fun but run out of fuel quickly. I am making a train to haul liquids but soon we will be making some…..ummmm……..let’s just say I just finished making Hazmat suits for us. hahahaha
  • Mass Effect Legendary (ME1)
    • My finale with the big boss finally arrived. IT WAS SUCH A GREAT EXPERIENCE! Just an explosion of joy at the end. Really great fight with a villain that had been building since the first mission. I had gotten to know my crew and the other NPC’s that are important in the game. This is the Mass Effect Movie I have always wanted to see. 
    • But that’s not what I want to talk about…
      • Paramour achievement.
        • Three Options (Human male, female, alien female/ gender neutral) 
        • What I didn’t realize is…afterward…my character has already checked out of the relationship mentally. 
  • Mass Effect Legendary (ME2) 
    • If ME1 is Cocaine, then ME2 is straight up Heroine. I literally can’t handle how much I like, and am enjoying it. This is a game done exactly right. They made some subtle changes to combat and movement that I had to get used to, no big deal. The thing I am REALLY enjoying is interaction between characters, how much I can manipulate the story, the opportunities to just…punch people in the face. 10/10 amazing so far. Can’t express enough how much I LOVE THIS GAME. 
      • Def play ME 1 first if you have never considered these games…playing ME2 first will ruin you. It’s like…tasting a hot fudge sundae before you’ve ever learned to eat vegetables. 
    • Just today, I did the mission where I cross paths with my love interest from the previous game. I was thinking: OMG, if he shows even the slightest bit of interest in him, I will not be strong enough to resist that temptation…then he started talking and ruined it all…for himself. I remembered how paranoid he was and he accused me of being on the wrong side of an argument so I was like…thank goodness. Now I can let you go on the basis that you are ANNOYING! 
  • Remnant
    • We had issues finding the Keeper’s Sanctuary but we finally did and now I am here for it! 
      • New mobs, new bosses, whole new …world? I feel like I’m part of Stargate SG1. 
    • It reminds me a little of Hellgate: London, some Division.  
    • I really like this game! I’m looking forward to seeing what is on the other side of all of the portals!!
  • Grounded
  • DDO
  • Neverwinter and Neverwinter Nights, no thank you.

    • Episode 12, Chickens and Steel – where I finally build a motorcycle. I am still really cheap though, I didn’t buy all the steel.
      • Breetai Beerloaf – “Such a Mellow Lessah, must be the new bike.  Looks great!”
    • Episode 13, Shamway Foods, Part 1 – Mythery went with me to clean out the Shamway Foods Manufacturing company. Spoiler: The secret to a can of Sham is soy. The bean, not the sauce. This is a two-part episode and it’s very good, GO WATCH IT! 
  • Minecraft, The Damsels Game and DDO Players News
  • DDO 
    • Sahba becomes Premium
      • Breetai Beerloaf – (after seeing all my characters names) “Someone is a Star Wars fan! Also clearly you need to get the Gnome race, they are superior to all the others.”
      • Thazara of Orien – “Thank you for this.  My VIP expires next week and it’s a bit scary and exciting all at the same time.”

    • Lessah: I learned how valuable iron really is. 
    • Myth:  Voice acting is really important.
    • Sahba: Lessah doesn’t own an alarm clock..and her male dates matter more to her than her female dates.

NEWS (maybe a rumor or three)

Rumors

  • Fallout TV series in production at Amazon (rumor because all the info I could find is this story – so it may happen, it may not)

News

  • Online mag news
    • Game Reviews from Game mags
      • Remnant from the Ashes
        • PC Gamer – 77; “This looter-shooter starts drab but goes to unexpected places.”
        • IGN – 8/10; Combat is absolutely fantastic.
        • GameInformer – 8.5/10; Strong systems and a satisfying gameplay loop give Remnant: From The Ashes a powerful foundation, even if the experience is mired by repetitive and uninteresting bosses and environments.
      • Grounded
        • IGN – 6/10 (from 13 Jan 21); “Grounded has a lot of potential as a great survival RPG, but it’s early-access offering comes up a little short.”
        • GameSpot – 6/10 (from 4 Aug 20); “Grounded plants the seeds of a good survival game in its miniaturist world, but it’ll definitely take some time for them to grow.”
      • 12 Minutes Reviews
        • PC Gamer – 53; “Turns out being stuck in a time loop where you do the same thing over and over is as frustrating as it sounds.”
      • D&D Dark Alliance Reviews
        • PC Gamer – 82; some bugs but a blast; brings the world of D&D to life brilliantly; made for co-op.
        • IGN – 4/10; I badly wanted Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance to be an awesome co-op version of the pencil-and-paper tabletop RPGs I’ve loved for decades, but it just isn’t. It’s a bland, boring trek through repetitive encounters that’s filled with bugs and annoying design choices, and though it allows you to play alone you absolutely should not do that because it’s an imbalanced nightmare. I can praise its faithful look and feel, which captures much of what makes Forgotten Realms a great setting, but there’s very little else to recommend about this unpolished mess of a hack-and-slash RPG.
      • 10 best modern RPGs (according to IGN)
        • 10 – Dragon Quest 11: Echoes of an Elusive Age (4 yrs)
        • 9 – Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen (8 yrs)
        • 8 – Dragon Age: Origins (12 yrs)
        • 7 – The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (10 yrs)
        • 6 – Disco Elysium (2 yrs)
        • 5 – Persona 5 Royal (2 yrs)
        • 4 – Divinity: Original Sin 2 (4 yrs)
        • 3 – Mass Effect 2 (11 yrs)
        • 2 – Fallout: New Vegas (11 yrs)
        • 1 – The Witcher 3 (6 yrs)
  • GW2 is having beta events for End of Dragons, the expansion coming Feb 2022.  Not important.  OK, to some, sure, but for me – this!!!  Siege Turtle Mounts!!!
  • Satisfactory Update 5
    • 6 Aug 21: considered final changes up leading up to 1.0
      • Northern forest – new lighting, new foliage
      • Dune desert – some landscape changes
      • Caves – visual look upgrade
    • 20 Aug 21: Ramp railings!!!
    • 27 Aug 21: New cosmetic buildings – new walls, walkways, new buildable types, including roofs

Question of the show (from Lessah)

  1. Would you rather play in third or first person? Is it important to have an option for both? For those watching Twitch streams or videos, would you rather watch first or third person?? 
  • Before we start!  
    • Future man. This show…. Wolf is the best part. 

Grounded

We played Grounded again last time and we went to see Burgle to get some quests and we were greeted by some spiders that had decided they wanted to take up residence in the research station with Burgle. I don’t think we actually killed any of them but we had a good time screaming and running from them. After that we went over to where this pile of paint cans live and there is a big tree that has berries that look a lot like blueberries and we gathered a bunch of those. There is also a big pond there with a ton of clay! So, we got a bunch of clay too. While we were poking around the pond I found a door. It was locked, so we are hoping to find the key soon. I can’t wait to see what is in there!! Our house is shaping up nicely. This game is so much fun but we are going to give it a little rest tonight and play another game that we found and like a whole lot too! It’s called Remnant; From the Ashes.

  • Our two weeks in gaming copycat
  • Minecraft with DDO Players
    • Watch the video! 
  • 7Days to Die 
    • POV Series
      • We will be filming our last episode after Sahba moves, I hope. 
        • OK 🙂
        • Are you bored with 7 Days to Die?
    • Vanilla Series will be ramped up in September. I am releasing an episode every 3 days until it’s all done. At the end of September (date TBA) I will be filming the live episode finale where we will be seeking buried treasure and letting people send us zombies…or supplies…or zombies. 
  • Satisfactory
    • In Rent and my game we have found oil, ran an impossibly long hypertube to it, and are about to make gas generators. 
    • I’m searching for bauxite and also realized I laid my train track wrong.  My car can’t get over the tracks.  Grrr.  
  • Frigid
    • Some of the animations for this game are dodgy. Drinking, for example. I don’t like that I can’t Shift and left click on an item I want to pick up, say…in a backpack or from a road kill or from a campfire and it doesn’t automatically stack with the same item I have in my inventory. That is very easy stuff. 
    • The beginning is supposed to be an engaging and necessary tool for teaching me game basics. I still don’t feel engaged at all in the beginning when I am trying to learn. Right now, they are still working. 
      • I look at games like Subsistence and think: “This game is not given enough credit for it’s elegance. 
  • Remnant
    • This game is like Fallout, Division 1, and GTFO had a baby. The respawns are a bit problematic but they do make you rich. 
    • It reminds me a little of Hellgate: London, some Division.  
  • Grounded
  • DDO
  • Scrap Mechanic

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.)

News

  • GW2 is having a balance update on 17 Aug 21.
  • DDO
    • Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh came out 4 Aug 21 for cash and will be available in Feb 2022 for DDO points. Link to FAQ.

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!

Sometimes honesty is the best policy, even at 75% off. And then sometimes, a free weekend of something might surprise you! Thanks so much for listening!

Jibber Jabber Time! 

  • Emails
    • Yes
  • Let’s talk videos and comments to videos! 
    • Our 7DTD POV Series
    • 7DTD Very Vanilla Second Scoop!
      • Episode 6 
        • Let ́s Play con Beetho That was a traveling horde, they are a thing now, from time to time one will pass nearby and can be attracted by your presence. In a modded game I was on a mission in one of the big buildings and suddenly I hear zombies, 2 small hordes hear me and they were trying to get to me from quite a bit, later they become a problem because some hordes have screamers and if they can get yo they will scream again and again summoning more and more zombies. It was challenging and horribly fun
      • In the most recent episode, “Thank you for your Service”, Mythery helps me look at real estate in a new town. Seeing as how I finally found a trader that I like, I can move. 
        • Here is how my VV Season 2 series works: I put out an episode every 5th day. 1, 5, 10 etc, all the way to the 30th of the month. It rolls right back over to eh 1st, so on those days, you get an extra episode within my 5-day timeline. 
      • Vanilla ain’t easy. It has taken me a while to claw my way into the gaming sweet spot. 
  • What we learned/ thoughts for the week:
    • Lessah: If you are going to hide in a roof for a horde, make sure you knock all the rungs off the ladder leading to where you are. 
    • Myth: Just be ready. If you’re ready then you don’t have to waste time getting ready.
    • Sahba: Thoughts for the week – The Olympics

Rumors, News, and Lies 

  • 7DTD Alpha 19.6 stable is out. 
  • ARK Lost Island (not yet available but will be a free, official DLC for ARK: Survival Evolved) – A second creature (voted by fans) to be added to ARK Lost Island will be the Dinopithecus:
  • According to the wiki, this guy will be tameable and rideable, not sure about breedable
  • Creativerse – Are you a morning person or a night person? contest
  • DDO – 
    • Summer Sails – It’s the last week of the Sails sales and guess what’s on sale now, that I will need in a few weeks but can’t buy now because I’m still VIP?? Monster manuals – 30% off.  Some other things, but for those listening (through 1 Aug 21) that don’t already have them, head to the store now and get some +8 Tomes of Supreme Ability.  They are 75% off.  
    • The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh is scheduled to be released 4 Aug 21.
      • Three editions, as usual – Standard, Collector’s, Ultimate Fan
      • VIPs also get 10% off the cost  
  • Horizon Forbidden West (Aloy’s continued story from Horizon Zero Dawn) delayed until the first quarter 2022 (Sony).
  • Medieval Dynasty sets a release date – 23 Sep 21 – and a price – USD 34.99 starting 15 Aug 21.
  • .
  • Question of the show – So, GenCon, would you go this year??
  • Before we start!  
    • Republic of Sara
    • Anne with an E 
      • Aren’t sassy/ scrappy red-headed orphans fun? 

Satisfactory

We started a new map with Lessah hosting. I really like this game a lot so I pretty much always have fun playing it. Just about the time we were finally setting up our initial iron/copper/limestone  lines someone (Demon some numbers 117?) let us know that while we were standing at the workbench we did NOT have to constantly have to hold the left mouse button. LIFE CHANGING INFORMATION!!! We can’t thank him enough.

So, we are just getting our 1st lines set up and Sahba said she found coal. That puts us ahead or at least we won’t be behind. Coal is the most important thing in the 2nd part of the game. Maybe even the 3rd, although I wouldn’t know since I haven’t gotten that far yet. Lessah found a puppy, now Sahba and I need to find puppies. Puppies are helpful since they bring you gifts like power slugs. We are nicely set up for a great start now. Maybe I’ll finally see what comes after coal generators.

Lessah: Satisfactory was more fun than I first thought. I like exploration. I can see the appeal of the building mechanic. It’s very clean. You get your materials back when you dismantle something. It’s very satisfying…pun. I wouldn’t not recommend this game. I will play it if I am coerced by my friends to do so. Kinda like Valheim, except I like it more. This game, honestly, is mythery’s jam. (That reminds me, for husband swap, you need to play Borderlands 3 with him. He’s bananas at that game.) Nooooo he’s too experienced at that :P~~~

We are starting a Minecraft project next week with the DDO Players and today Lessah taught Draculetta how to play!! I was so surprised when I found out that he was a Minecraft virgin.

Tonight we will be playing Grounded. This game has been free to play all weekend (still good through Sunday). All I know is, you play one of 4 teeny tiny children lost in the backyard and have to brave the dangers of ferocious insects, hunger, and thirst. We played for a short time last night to get our characters and things set up and from what I can tell, it’s going to be really fun!

  • Our two weeks in gaming copycat
  • 7Days to Die 
    • POV Series
      • Sahba is BACK! YAY! 
        • Are you bored with 7 Days to Die?
    • I played 7DTD with Friendly Necromancer and it was a laugh a minute. 
      • I have some video footage of that on my YouTube channel. I think I have him addicted to 7 Days. 
    • Vanilla Series is almost done wrapping up. After episode 30 is filmed, I will take a break until alpha 20 drops. Then season 3 will take things…to the desert or the winter. Maybe both. 
  • Ark Survival Evolved, Ragnarok 
    • Mythery and I went looking for a giga. She finally fixed my plumbing. (The nerve!) Ark is just such a demanding game, if I am playing something else, I can’t really commit. So it’s like…Ark or nothing or other games and no Ark. 
  • GW2
    • Staying in the desert for a while!
    • Please can we play this? I have gone in a few times just to clear out low level maps. 
  • Satisfactory
    • Demon117 in twitch changed my life. (He told me how to craft without constantly clicking!) 
  • Grounded
    • Confession time! 
    • This game has a very good crafting system, easy to learn controls, and an engaging/ challenging progression. (Don’t go to the Acorns alone.) 

Housekeeping!

      • Episodes 1-16 are up and there will be a quiz later so go watch! I need a Sahba Jade to come to my Vanilla Game now since I have a place that is not embarrassing to live in. (The previous versions were not good enough.) 
        • Here is how my VV Season 2 series works: I put out an episode every 5th day. 1, 5, 10 etc, all the way to the 30th of the month. It rolls right back over to eh 1st, so on those days, you get an extra episode within my 5-day timeline. 
      • It’s like I haven’t learned anything. Still falling, screaming, running, having low level loot and acting like it’s cool. The difference is, I have a mini bike now! 
      • I will say that when you get something nice on Vanilla, you really feel like you earned it. 
  • What we learned/ thoughts for the week:
    • Lessah: The Cure for Zombie Fever is a new PC. 
      • Myth: I learned how much happiness a walk-in closet can cause.
      • Sahba: We’ve played games how long and we are still overconfident (“we are overprepared, it’s only horde night 14” followed by “we weren’t ready” as horde night 14 progressed), which leads to very exciting horde nights.  To be fair, it Looked like you were ready.  Those defences looked really good :).  The birds.  Alfred Hitchcock would be happy.
        • I will build two more sets of stairs so the zombies get to choose which line to get in and who gets to kill them. Spoiler alert…everyone chooses Mythery.

            • This game is like Minecraft with cuter NPCs
              • Prettier than MC. 
            • It’s kinda cool. I couldn’t figure out what to do to get started, so I went into Fred’s game and he helped a little bit and I got the hang of things. 
            • It is fun but it makes me want to play Minecraft badly. 
          • Stronghold 2 
            • Being a lord SUCKS. Those stupid peasants just want everything. They poop all over the place and whine when you don’t overfeed them or tax them. 
            • What’s the point of being in power if you have to actually do stuff? 
    • Before we start!  
      • Sweet Tooth
        • We HAVE TO TALK ABOUT THIS.
          • This is The Island of Dr Moreau meets Rudolph’s Shiny New Year (60’s Stop motion stuff), with a dash of Oh Brother Where Art Thou and… it’s actually pretty good. 
          • Get you a man like…get you a man who will go on one date and then raise your hybrid lab baby. 
          • I feel so sorry for all the kids…some of them can’t even talk. You can’t tell me that there isn’t a government facility out there studying these kids. 
      • No Season 2 for Lovecraft Country?!?!?!!!
      • Loki on Disney Plus. Go watch. SO GOOD. 
        • What happened in the theatre during Avengers End Game… 

    Guild Wars 2

    Back in the desert again! Woo hoo!!

        • We did the dragon Bash!!!!
      • Satisfactory
        • The landscape is amazing. We have a great base and I just ran coal down the side of a mountain to the base. Not so easy but doable!
        • I played this…you guys are definitely slaves and maybe robots. (Ala Von-Neumann Probe sp?) I liked it better than Valheim and Scrap Mechanic. 
      • Valheim
        • I played this under protest with Taeranos because he played a game with me. Gaming Quid Pro Quo…

        Here is the metric, each category gets a 1-10 score: 

        1. How enjoyable is it? (as in, Do you keep going back? Do you think and plan for it when you aren’t playing?) 
        2. Crafting Mechanics. (How easy/intuitive/fun is it?)
        3. Building. (Does it allow for creativity? Can you terraform?) 
        4. Survivability. (How challenging is it to stay alive? Factor in food/weather and how enjoyable it is to master these things.) 
        5. Playability. (Is this a game you can play for >6months or will you play it a few times and leave forever?)

        7DTD POV

        We wrapped up our time on the road, collected the loot from our random loot boxes strewn about the land and came back home. I made Lessah a pink jeep, Sahba a Quad, me a Buggy and the 3 of us a van. A Hostess delivery van to be specific! Sahba is building a garage in the alien field next door and I can’t wait to see it when it is finished.

            • Mythery POV 13
              • Breetai Beerloaf: Dear Lessah, I am Mythery’s union rep. Mythery is entitled to take at least 2 15-min breaks when she deems necessary.  Also, after watching this video, we will renegotiate Mythery’s hazard pay.  I will also be in touch with management about the destruction of unlooted containers, in which Mythery will be compensated for her losses.

          • Lessah: I am addicted to raising babies. Literally can’t stop.
          • Myth: I never knew what a thrill it would be to have all of the colors of the rainbow in Sabertooth Tigers! So much vicious cuteness.

        We killed some dragons!

        We finally finished our personal stories. We thought we were leading up to killing the elder dragon Zhaitan since we had been killing his eyes and mouths for weeks. But when we arrived on the airship for the final battle several minion dragons were sent in for the fight and wow what a fight it was!!

            • We go house shopping and then back to our original location so Mythery can make me a jeep! 
          • So much fun!
        • Ark Survival Evolved, Ragnarok 
          • Babies first cave exploration 
            • Currently breeding canon fodder for the adventure. 
              • We also tamed a T-Rex
            • We have lots to do! 
              • Bullets, cats, making saddles for all the cats. 
            • CHICKENS! (More little birds called Micro Raptors) 
              • So much harder to catch than pretty much everything else we have tamed. I find them when they knock me off my bird and give me a concussion. 
        • Ark is a job but right now I love my job. 
        • GW2
          • WE KILLED A DRAGON! Or three. 
            • The very satisfying conclusion to our personal stories! It was pretty epic. Now onto the desert for pie! 
        • Satisfactory
        • Scrap Mechanic with Tae
        • Subnautica BZ
          • I pushed the story forward accidentally and found lots of new plants. I really like the mean NPC, Marguerite, she hates Altera but I also know that she doesn’t trust anyone and pretty much screwed over her party in the first game. 
        • MASS EFFECT LEGENDARY! 
          • So worth the 60 bucks, you get all three games with updated graphics and combat system. Driving and shooting from the Mako is no longer as tedious as it used to be. (It’s really fun actually.) 
            • I keep making all the same mistakes over again more than ten years later. Wrex (the Krogan) is now my favorite character though. He’s so snarky.

        Disappointing Guild Wars 2

        We thought we were going to finish Sahba’s personal story but apparently there is a known bug that the devs think is great and they love it so much it has been there for years and years and they aren’t going to fix it so we can’t. We had fun anyway. Tonight we are going to finish up with mine and Lessah’s after a short trip to the land of 7dtd and our personal POV’s.

          • The Base of my dreams
        • Baldur’s Gate 3
          • Graphics and story are pretty awesome. The party members you pick up are interesting. 
          • My thoughts so far… this game is kinda exhausting because combat takes a million years. If it were more like Dragon Age, it would be waaaaay better. It’s not intuitive and I wasted several combat turns by misclicking stuff. There is a learning curve there for sure. If I had played a Demo of this game, I would NOT have purchased it. It’s like tabletop D&D with better graphics, only, you can’t interact with party members while you play. (the way you could with Neverwinter Nights) So combat (while you wait for other people to figure out what they are doing and take ten years to make one decision) is arduous. 
          • When you play Co-Op, you have to wait for other people to stop screwing around and come on. If you move forward too far, you will get accused of “Running ahead” when all I wanted to do was walk forward… Instead, the party behind you is sweeping every nook and cranny clean of junk stuff you can’t even use and you have nothing to do while you just stand there and wait. 
            • My advice: Play with someone who has the same patience level or curiosity level as you.
