  • 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
