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)
      • Creativerse – one thumb up (SP1)
      • DDO – three thumbs up (SP1)

    • 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?

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! 
  • Remnant
  • Grounded

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!

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.

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)

  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.

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.
    • Update 50.1 released on 11 Aug 21.
      • Best part of this update – comms of heroism can be turned in for Greater Tokens of the Twelve!!!
      • Trading in Scrolls, Seals, Shards
        • Scrolls – 3 
        • Seals – 6

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!

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!

    • Our 7DTD POV Series
    • 7DTD Very Vanilla Second Scoop!
      • 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…

        • Lessah: WHen you go out to find something, it won’t be there until you give up. The next day…dolphins galore!
          • Myth:I didn’t know I wanted a shark until now!!!

        • Question of the show – What are your favorite (and one least favorite) crafting/survival games?

        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?) 

        You can rate up to 5 games of your choice. 

        Lessah: (In order from least points to most.) 

        • 5. Subsistence – 40
        • 4. Ark – 41
        • 3. Subnautica – 43
        • 2. Minecraft – 43
        • 1. 7DTD – 44

        Sahba: Favs – 

        1. Minecraft: 38
        2. 7DTD: 37
        3. ScrapMechanic/Raft: 30
        4. Satisfactory: 35
        5. Frostpunk: 23

        Mythery: 

        • 1.7DTD: 45
        • 2.Satisfactory/Scrap Mechanic: 35
        • 3. Ark: 45
        • 4. Minecraft: 36
        • 5. Subnautica/Raft: 30

        Bonus question: which game do you like the least out of all the survival games you have ever played? 

        Lessah: Green Hell CENSORED! (Spoiler, it’s a picture of a penis, cause F#%& that game.)

        Sahba – Never play again – hated, hated, hated -gets neg score Green Hell 

        Mythery – The Forest/Green Hell I’m pretty sure they are the same game.

        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.

              • 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.

        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!!

              • 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.

          • 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.

          • Four days later another email, from Brian.  He’s getting a “Bad RSS feed” when trying to get the podcast from the website (I think).  At the time of the email, it had been happening for a week.  
        • I’ve asked for more info but he wanted to know if anything had changed or did he need to just be patient?? 
        • As a test, I went to the website, to the episode just before his email, and I get this .  However, when I “click here to subscribe via rss” I get “This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it.  The document tree is shown below.”  Bottom line, the word press file needs to be fixed so that RSS works.

              • Breetai Beerloaf – Myth always seems to end up alone killing mini hordes.  Nothing like relaxing and laying waste to a zombie horde.
        • What we learned/ thoughts for the week:
          • Lessah: If you are in a house made of wood. Do NOT set it on fire. 
          • Myth: All I really needed was an almost level 300 Thylacoleo of my very own to love and tear small animals to shreds with and eat them.

        3. Mortal Kombat
        4. Shadow and Bone

        7 Days to Horde Night!

        We started a new server with the gang after dumping Nitrado and picking up a new company called LogicServers. Here’s the thing, we have enjoyed Nitrado for a number of years and depending on who you are and what you are doing with your server I think they are probably an excellent choice. They are a tad more expensive than everyone else but they are helpful and have a lot of options for things. We dumped them because you have no control over game server updates for 7DTD, which wrecks our games quite often. So we stress tested LogicServer (that was fun!), they passed, and here we are. We hit day 7 pretty fast so Lessah, Cadameir, and I decided we should do horde night and get it over with hahaha. We have barely set up a place to live yet so we went and found a building to fight on top of. I’m a terrorist so I had a lot of land mines and assorted bombs which Lessah placed around the outside base of the building. We also had some exploding arrows and Cad had a rocket launcher. Our first horde night looked much like the 4th of July sans the pretty colors, plus flying body parts! It was great.

          • Myth: I missed my calling. I should have been a pearl diver.
          • Sahba: I learned I have all the common outfits in Scrap Mechanic and seashells indicate where caves are located.

        2. Snyder edition Justice League – what does Lessah think???

        Let’s talk about Ark!

        Easter event! We kidnapped bunnies!!!! Dodo bunnies that is, we put them in our nursery and got enough easter eggs to make everything we wanted. Lessah has been hatching (and getting eggs ready to hatch) like crazy. I am doing a terrible job at making otters but I don’t think it matters anyway. All we really needed was our old stand by muscle after all, for our pearl diving needs. We have the most “naturally” colorful dinos ever! And are still finding and adopting!

          The Damsels Game, Episode 144, How to MMO

          Hello! We are the Damsels Game! 

          The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. We played a lot of games this week; Dungeons and Dragons Online, Scrap Mechanic, 7 Days to Die, Ark Survival Evolved, and Minecraft? We talk about all of it, plus we delve into how to make friends in an MMO. (Spoiler, we don’t really know either!) Thanks so much for listening. 

          http://www.podcastgarden.com/episode/the-damsels-game-144_162379

          This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored by the cementing paste! Need something to stick together better than glue? Cementing paste is for you! Available at your local beaver cave. Just pop down quickly and don’t let the beavers see you. 

          Intro:  

          The Damsels Recorded Live on Sunday, March 14th. This is our 144th show.  We put shows out every 2 weeks, you can listen via iTunes, Our Website, DamselsofDDO.com or our home at Podcast Garden.com.

          Let ́s Play con Beetho6 days ago

          • In a server i play this really small hordes happen from time to time. The admins just make a server restart and they apear properly after.
          • WaltsWorker6 days ago
          • Bandit says: “A few things… Just to the south is a bunker!  Better loot that sucker!  Another is the poles you use to hold up the platforms for you to get from the roof to the ‘base'(just above the doors) are too close. IE: There is only one open spot between them.  The reason this is bad is that if there is a way (ladder at the back of the building) that the zombies can path to you – they’ll take that way to get up to the roof to you. And that becomes a ‘marked path’ for them to use.  They will also try to bash those poles since that’s a support for that path which is a way for you to escape.  You’re level 20 your game stage is at least 20 [gameStage = ( playerLevel + daysSurvived ) * difficultyBonus] when in a party – all game stages are added… So in your two previous Horde Nights you had at least one other player.  So now the game stage for this horde night is cut in half – or approximately; all dependent upon Myth & Tae’s Game Stages.  One other thing is “Spawning Range” – which on Horde night is about +40 or so.  So – when you started horde night at the far end of the building – that’s the reference point to where the initial zombies would spawn.  With that – they’ll virtually spawn anywhere except near your bedroll at about 40 blocks out or a bit more; and that’s wave 1.  There’s that building to the north and the broken building to the north east (and maybe other buildings) – I figure that’s where some spawned and got stuck.  Cause during horde night once they’ve spawned they’ll stay live (beating down walls, etc.) until killed or until you move far enough away for them to despawn.  The biggest factor is that in essence your game stage (total) for the horde night has been halved.  Another big factor is “Blood Moon Enemy count.  I think default is 8.  That means 8 zombies per player during horde night.  Actual numbers is more complicated.”
          • What we learned:
            • Lessah: Who can hold 25 meats. 
            • Myth: I don’t know.
            • Sahba: I’m a bum and I like it :).

          Rumors, News, and Lies

          • Before we start!  
          1. It’s time to talk about emergency preparedness (Texas is a summer place with summer emergencies like floods and hurricanes… things people along the Gulf Coast are used to dealing with. When I say we weren’t ready for this winter storm, I mean WE HAD NO IDEA.) 
            1. If you think you are ready…you are not. Here’s my Cold Snap report card
              1. If your gas tank is half full, it’s empty, fill it up. A+
              2. If you bought batteries for last year’s emergency, your batteries might be leaking acid. When was the last time you looked at them? C-
              3. Did you know that when the power supply gets cut off to the cell towers, you also lose internet on your phone? Fun, right? C (had radio from the car)
              4. Did you know that when propane tanks get really cold, the seals on them don’t behave well…our propane tanks for our TEN YEAR OLD camp stove were all empty. You don’t know low morale until you know you aren’t getting a hot meal during a winter storm when it’s 35 degrees in your house. F– 
              5. MVP of our cold snap was the gas fireplace. We were able to heat up leftover chilli and then make water for tea/ oatmeal. A
              6. Before a storm, do yourself a favor and fill up a 5 gallon bucket with water and have a big cup next to it to flush your toilets when you lose water. D-
          2. This whole thing was like…apocalypse darts. 
            1. Day 0: You have power and water. 
            2. Day 1: You have no power, but you have water. (Oh and it’s 14 degrees outside.) 
            3. Day 2: You have no power and no water. Also, the power company has asked all residents to limit their power even less. (Less than what????) What’s that? You want to go to a hotel? Well….. They don’t have power either, and the ones that do are all full of families trying to get warm. It’s not like you can drive away, there is no escape. The entire state is going through the same thing. 
            4. Day 3: You have power for 2 hours every 10 hours. But we aren’t going to tell you when that is. Oh, and no water. 
            5. Day 4: You have some power and your water is back at a very low flow, so if you still have pipes that didn’t burst, you can use it but you need to boil the water because it’s contaminated. Oh, and if you still don’t have power to do that, you need to use bottled water. What’s that? You used the majority of it over the last three days? Well, bad news, the stores are all empty! So, you can’t buy any water, but if you listen to the radio you might find a FEMA line somewhere in the city that will give you a pack of water but you are going to be waiting in line for it a long time. If you need more gas because you warmed up in your car over the last three days, you can’t get that either! The gas stations are empty as well. 
            6. Day 5: You have power, it’s pretty much on all the time! YAY! You have water… more or less. Just don’t drink it. Stores are still empty. Aaaaaannnndddd. Here comes another hard freeze! 
          3. My Coworker who listened to our last show says I am banned from rapping. 
            1. Blah blah blah everyones a critic. 🙂

          7DTD POV episodes 5 and 6

          We did episodes 5 and 6 on our last “official” stream. This is so much fun! Anyone remember what we did? Hee hee We are moving right along and even though episode 3 was just released Friday we have already recorded episode 8!! Well, most of us. Next time, horde night!!

          • Our two weeks in gaming
          • 7Days to Die 
            • Mythery came to visit me in the My Very Vanilla Series and a bear decided to loot the same house we were looting…only the loot was us. 
            • In our POV series, I love the idea of leaving for a new town after horde. We can always shuttle back and forth to drop off whatever we need. It’s really all about the adventure. 
            • Me too!
          • Ark Survival Evolved, Ragnarok 
            • The Bird Army is coming along! 
              • 5 Dimorphs, 2 argys, 2 really aggressive dodos, and one Watch-Raptor. 
            • We want Moths!
            • Mythery wants something she can’t have. 
              • Phoenix. 
            • Who me?
              • Hmm otter, moth, pink or white female argy, ….phoenix?
          • GW2 –
            • We are getting so close to level 80!!
              • YAY! I will get even more excited when we hit 70, we can go to the Fort. We will end up  working with the Kitty Kat. 
          • Valheim
            • I gave it another chance and this time I found everything I needed to make an axe and build things. I see how lots of people like this game. It’s not easy. It’s just not for me. It’s early access and still a bit rough around the edges. I normally don’t mind that sort of thing but the graphics are not what I gravitate towards. 
            • I know why you didn’t like trying to pick things up. You have to have the cursor right on the thing you are trying to pick up and then sometimes it will jump and you will have to click on it a second time to get it into your inventory. I was told that it is a known bug.
            • Having to click the mouse every time you swing your arm to do something, like chop a tree, seems tedious. This same motion made fighting seem stilted.
            • The graphics are…. bad. They are not what I would call cartoony, or pixelated, or pretty. They are just bad. It’s like they didn’t have the expertise they needed to make them good so instead of hiring someone that could do elegant or going a different way (cartoon/pixel) they sort of tried to make things look sorta kinda like what they should look like and then blurred everything so maybe we wouldn’t notice. The female character is the male character with a couple of lines implying breasts. Whatever.
            • I found the bird tutor to be only moderately useful but he wasn’t annoying. 
            • With that said, I did not hate the game. I realize it’s an early release. I just think it can do better. I played long enough to have killed the first boss so I did get to do some crafting but not a lot. What I did do was nice. Recipes were easy to find and follow. Pieces snapped together if I wanted them to do so or I could place them pretty much where I wanted. Rotating them was super easy too. Also, I could raise or lower the ground by using a hoe to help with placing my foundations. 
            • I had fun playing but I think it was mostly because of the person I was playing with and less about the game. Like I said, I didn’t hate it and I will play with my friend again. It just seems to me to play and look more like a game that was written maybe a decade or more ago. I haven’t read anything about this game so maybe that’s what they are going for. If so then they nailed it!
          • Scrap Mechanic
            • I’m pretty sure this game was designed by a bunch of engineers who aren’t actually gamers. I know, now I just sound like I’m bitching about everything. I’m not. Really! I like this game a lot! I’ve played it 123 hours so I must like it a little. I got it because a lot of the time I feel like I want more from the crafting part of these games I am playing. I put it in my wish list and left it there for a very long time. I didn’t buy it until survival mode came out because I don’t want to just craft but when I’m crafting I want options! And this looked like it was going to give me lots of options. Plus it was going to let me tinker with more than just slapping together buildings and the like. Wheeeeeeeeeee! But now I’m not satisfied with the other part of the game. I don’t think it is laid out right. Our 1st hour in the game we wound in in an area we should have never seen, much less been allowed in. Scared Lessah so bad she won’t come back and play with us. The weapons are meh, no point system of any kind, no armor, and so far I can’t figure out how to make a light that actually gives off some light at night!! But for some reason I really like this game. I love the cows, I mean wocs and feeding them corn. Building the stuff is awesome and I don’t think we have scratched the surface of that. The surroundings are pretty, resource gathering is fun, the graphics are nice and I really like the sounds that go with things. The crunch of stone is quite satisfying.

          Guild Wars 2 Champion’s Sacrifice and the Battle of Claw Island

          We went to the Hylek village (Hylek are giant frogs) and talked to Archen Foreland. The Hylek were distraught, Ikniu’s brother was missing. So we went to look for him and we found out that the Hylek champions had been turned into corrupted monsters. We had to deliver that terrible news and then of course we had to go put them down. In doing that we had to fight Sabiti and bring back his head as proof. We argued about who was going to carry the head. I forget who carried it but it wasn’t me.

          Then we went to Claw Island and there was a huge battle. It was terrible and had to light those lights (I forget what they are called but they mean HELP) and the main dude was very much against doing that since they had not been lit in like a billion years and he was going to be embarrassed but we did it anyway. There were so many undead and undead ships (so creepy) but in the end we won. Just barely.

              The Damsels Game Episode 141, Scraping Mechanics

              The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. Tonight we are going to be playing Guild Wars 2. Stick around after the cast! We played a lot of games this time and we will talk about a lot of them. DDO, Horizon Zero Dawn, Scrap Mechanic, Far Cry 5, 7 Days to Die, Guild Wars 2, and who knows what else! Thanks so much for listening! 

              http://www.podcastgarden.com/episode/the-damsels-game-141_161638

              This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored by Lessah and Mythery’s characters from Far Cry 5. That’s right, they have grown so rich that they can now afford everything! How many Prepper Stashes are too many, you ask? The answer is simple. All your Stashes are belong to me!  

              Intro:  

              The Damsels Recorded Live on Sunday, January 31st. This is our 141st show.  

              Jibber Jabber Time! 

              • Emails
                • Yes Lessah, I got an email.
                • We have an email
              • What we learned:
                • Lessah: Bulls hate trucks. 
                • Myth: If you do Clutch Nixon Challenges with a partner they have two challenges. 1. You must maintain the appropriate game permitted distance from your partner and 2. The actual challenge. BUT only one of you has to actually complete the challenge for both to get credit. I also learned that Cissly Tyson lived to be 96! 
                • Sahba: I learned how to use controllers in Scrap Mechanic.  So cool.  

              Rumors, News, and Lies 

              • Before we start!  Spoiler!!! 
              1. Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist is back on!  
              2. The Expanse is pretty good. I am on episode 1 of season 2 now. 
              3. Remember the last show when I sang Mythery a rap about her? 
                1. Well… brace yourselves

              Scrap Mechanic 

              So, we played and we got our butts kicked repeatedly. This was our 2nd day in this world and we haven’t actually crafted anything. Unless you count feeding cows corn so that they pop out milk for us to drink so we don’t starve to death. We did plant a couple of gardens but one is quite some distance from where we have decided to stay so gathering food from there is inconvenient for now, making recovering from dying so that one can go and grab one’s backpack slightly more difficult than it should be. I think we were ill prepared for the section of the map we had decided to attack (no guns, no food, no buffs, no shielding, no anything) and therefore were pounded ….no not true. We were one shot many times until we managed to take them out, which of course we ultimately did so we could retrieve our belongings. The beginning and end of Scrap Mechanic. I’m still having fun there and plan to give it more chances but alas not all games are for everyone. Sahba and I have a 2 person game going that we plan to continue but Lessah is not so enamored with this game and that’s OK. Anyway, you never know, it’s in early access and if things change and she wants to give it another go I’ll allow it.

                • Questions for Sahba Jade
                  • It’s day 4 in Very Vanilla, you have no home, no roof, no gun. What is your horde plan? 
                  • Modded is academic, easier. 
              • Far Cry 5
                • We met Jacob (ONLY YOU)
                  • No spoilers but it’s a bit of a psychological thriller situation. I really enjoyed him at the end because he brainwashed me to do so. 
                    • Also, Joseph got upset when we defeated Faith and John, but he cried over Jacob. He loved him. 
                  • I bought a boat paddle because I’m so rich and I love whacking people with it. 
                • Let’s say a few words about Hurk. 
                  • Very funny NPC that you should hire ASAP in Jacob’s area. 
                  • Daddy issues. His dad is running for Senate in Montana. 
                  • Can fly a helicopter, might not bring it back. 
              • GW2 – playing this tonight!!!
                • I played GW2 with Sahba! 
                  • Got all the XP’s on Asuras, ready to go on to level 40 story. 
                    • Some guy thinks we are adorable.
                  • After that, we can probably head straight into the level 50 story whenever we want. 
              • Horizon Zero Dawn
                • Myth – Chasing Racoons. 
              • Scrap Mechanic
                • It’s cool. I like the cows.

                  • Sahba: I also learned Myth is Drac’s sugar mama (I’m from the North, so I say sugar <G>).  No, seriously, I learned so many things but I guess the best is that my range of game enjoyment is vast.

                1. The Expanse – on Prime. I’m on episode 3. It’s pretty involved.  

                Myth has no words???? 

                Quotes: Cloning is fun.

                There are two colors. Pink and Not pink. 

                Why did you paint that cat pink? Because he wasn’t pink yet.

                  • Lessah’s Norn’s storyline
                    • This is all about pride and prowess. Either you can fight like a Norn or maybe you should have stayed in the tavern/ ice cave. I love that my character has a nemesis she hates just because he’s an arrogant ass. 
                    • I liked cheering Lessah on as she did her challenges.

                The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. We played Guild Wars 2 and the Winter Event was really cool. Also, the quests were looooong.

                    • Rand T 1 week ago – YAY! At about 1:40 you missed a field with a few potatoes! Supply Drops: Shortly after you hear the plane – is when the supplies are dropped – so if you see the plane – then you can gauge where the drop is. In the video it’s about 2 ticks east of the directly south marker. Distance is hard to gauge though. OH! Another thing is – when you get close to the supply drop – it will appear in the map! So says CAD!
                • What we learned:
                  • Lessah: A bunch of my favorite games were on sale stupid cheap.

I thought we were saving the toys and then I thought we were saving the toy princess and then she turned out to be a little bitch but I’m pretty sure that doesn’t even matter because this quest NEVER ENDS!!! Dolls dolls dolls! Time to paint the dolls, the dolls are running. See the dolls run. Run dolls run. The dolls run fast. Very fast. Wait! The last doll is hiding and not running. She is standing verwy still. ARGH!!! RUN! RUN, now you must run very fast!! Run fast run!!

                Guild Wars 2

                .

                We were introduced to the three Orders and made aware of the true threat of the Elder Dragons. I was persuaded to permanently join an order to aid in the fight against the dragons.  I joined the Durmand Priory.

                We worked with the orders to rescue a researcher who has discovered that the dragons consume magic, whose research is being covered up by the Arcane Eye.

                 Durmand Priory: The scholars of the Priory believe the dragon can be defeated using ancient knowledge of past victories.

                We are playing GW2 tonight!

                  The Damsels Game Episode 137, All We Want for Christmas

                  All I Want For Christmas

                  The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. Today we are talking about games we have on our Wish List for Christmas and beyond. It’s a little odd that all our lists show NO GAMES in common. Thanks so much for listening!

                  http://www.podcastgarden.com/episode/the-damsels-game-137_160382

                  This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored by Oh Shitz Drops. Are you afraid of heights? Well, these babies are for you.  Available in most vending machines around Navezgane. These sweet little candies have a purpose. Fall Damage? Not today, Tall Building. I popped my drops! I’ll be taking 100% of nothing for the next five minutes. 

                  Pop your drops and be prepared for those Oh Shitz Moments. 

                  Intro:  

                  The Damsels Recorded Live on Sunday, December 6th. This is our 137th show.  

                  Jibber Jabber Time!

                    • If you haven’t watched my series, you can get caught up easily. Only three episodes are out, so go watch! Episodes are already uploaded and scheduled for release through the end of the year. 
                      • Speaking of the Very Vanilla Series, there have been comments 🙂
                    • Questions: 
                      • Is it still vanilla if it’s not all default settings? 
                        • I can never find supply drops. 
                        • When I die, I drop EVERYTHING. When you have nothing, that is significant. 
                        • How many Episodes is a Season? 
                    • What do you think of a Vanilla ARK Ark Series for Summer 2021? 
                  • What we learned:
                    • Lessah: I learned that I can’t drive ATVs in any game. 
                    • Myth: Every woman within the sound of my voice needs to hear this! They have clinics where you can take your mate so he can experience the pain of childbirth for a solid 10 minutes.
