Watched some YouTube videos on Warframe this morning, to see where that game has gone since I stopped playing it some years ago (was once my favorite thing to play). It’s looking cool, but even cooler is I found out Digital Extremes is working on a new game called Soulframe, which I might also like very much. Who knows when it’s coming out though, and whether or not it’ll live up to the early hype.

Also, not having seen any female characters presented yet, it may break one of of my cardinal rules of gaming. I won’t play games that only have lingerie armor and/or high heels for female characters. It’s fine if those are options, but my toon wants to wear actual armor and not be teetering around in stilettos, thanks.


Not Gonna Make It

I think my time with is coming to an end. I’ve been slowly working my way towards the final battle, but even though I’m way over leveled and playing on easy mode, I’m struggling to get through things. It’s just not fun, and it makes my hands hurt. So I’ve gone back to past Lucis, and I’ll play there to do the fishing and hunts, until I’ve done all of that. I’m pretty disappointed, but really the ending is so sad (aside from the world being saved), that I can probably watch a video of someone else finishing it and be content.

And no, I’m not going to buy and read a book to get the happy ending that should have happened in game. I honestly don’t know what they were thinking with the story on this one, because it’s spread out across all sorts of media, and there are actually a number of alternate endings, depending on which media you play or consume.

Anyway, I enjoyed it. It’s not a terrible game. I just don’t think I can get it done.😢


Running Up That Hill

Final Fantasy XV has a really neat photo feature, where one of the characters takes pics while you’re out doing whatever, and when you rest you can look through them and save the ones you like. It’s pretty cool, and negates me having to get cool shots of things almost entirely.

This is one of my current fave shots. I was a little under leveled for this dungeon, so it was a real adventure, and then I had to run up this lava flow to take a pic for another quest. The lava was, in fact, hot and deadly. I got it done, but it was a struggle, and then this shot was one of the photos when I rested that night. Love it!

Noctis, the main character of Final Fantasy 15, runs up a hot flow of lava towards the heart of the volcano to take a photo for a quest objective.

Expedition Complete?

Um, the community activity part of the expedition completed, so I finished up the last bit of it, and it says the expedition is complete, but my save is not converting to a normal save. Had this problem with another expedition that had a community goal too, so I guess that save will just sit there until the thing ends in four weeks. Not a huge crisis. I’m not needing a new save at the moment, but the husband is a bit annoyed.
