Steam Challenge: Kingdom Rush

Posted on December 29

I think I got Kingdom Rush in a bundle somewhere, and it was one of those games I wanted to just try to get off my “to play” list.

FFXIV: Tales from the Duty Finder – DPS: “I am glad I was wrong about last boss…”

Posted on December 28

Even on a good day, The City of Rabanastre is not my favorite raid. Last week, when my FC ran it, I must have been a little out of sorts, because I was easily annoyed by randoms in our alliance party.

Steam Challenge: Dog Sled Saga

Posted on December 27

This was a surprise Christmas gift that has been sitting on my wishlist since last year, back when I first heard about it and read the strong, positive reviews.

Steam Challenge: Winter Sale & 2018 Goals

Posted on December 26

So how has your Steam Winter Sale gone this year? My wishlist is… quite a bit lighter than it was going in. In my defense, I only bought two games this sale: Planet Coaster and SOMA.

Merry Christmas!

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas!

Steam Challenge: Towns

Posted on December 22

You look at my time played. You ask, “How can you write a review about a game you’ve only played for 12 minutes, Wren?”

Steam Challenge: Corporate Lifestyle Simulator

Posted on December 20

I don’t even remember where I got this game. It might have been a freebie. It might have been part of a bundle. I shoved it under the “clear” category in my Steam Library, which indicates I intended to fire it up for a few minutes, play a little bit, and remove it, all in the name of getting a sub-par game off my “unplayed” Steam library list.

FFXIV: A Berry Merry Starlight

Posted on December 18

The Starlight Festival, the FFXIV Christmas event, began last Friday. It’s a cute little quest line with several housing items and the big-ticket reward – the new bear mount.

FFXIV Announces Glamour Commodes

Posted on December 15

Update: Newest screenshots confirm that the word “commode” was changed for release. How disappointing. 🙂

FFXIV: Squad Healing

Posted on December 12

The game keeps sending me cool Astrologian weapons through my retainer ventures. Not to mention healer drops in dungeons and raids. So, I took the hint and finally unlocked Astro last week.

FFXIV: Sinterklass Free Company Holiday Event

Posted on December 11

Our FC tends to do things a little differently… Why celebrate the holidays the typical way when you can embrace celebrations from other cultures? Such as the Dutch feast of Sinterklaas!

FFXIV: Tales from the Duty Finder: Everyone’s a Critic

Posted on December 8

You see that up there? Poor sad Amon!

Steam Challenge: Portal Knights

Posted on December 7

Portal Knights is a game I’ve been keeping my eye on since early access. I thought about getting it for the Switch when it released, but seeing it priced at $30 on Nintendo… and $11 on Steam with the Fall Sale… it was a no-brainer to get it on Steam. Plus, I was able to nudge Syn into playing with me, which has made it a lot more fun.

FFXIV: STOP! Glamour Time!

Posted on December 7

I haven’t been very immersed in FFXIV lately, so I decided to do a few low-key things today to get my feel for this game back. This included working on a holiday glamour!

FFXIV: Tales from the Duty Finder – The Day I Saved the Raid

Posted on December 5

I don’t like to write about myself in Tales from the Duty Finder, since this is supposed to be a section about funny or annoying things that happen due to other people. But Syn told me I should post this, so I will.

Steam Challenge: Doki Doki Literature Club

Posted on December 4

Doki Doki Literature Club is a psychological horror game pretending to be a cute, cheerful visual novel dating sim.

GW2: Time to Talk About Mount Skins

Posted on December 1

I really have tried to avoid writing this post. I’ve bottled up my feelings about what’s been happening around GW2 and selling mount skins in the Gem store. But, it’s bugging me. I need to get it off my chest… Mostly because I’m starting to feel a little like I was duped.
