I’m going to leave you guessing as to what I’ve finished just for a little while longer, although I suspect some of you may be to guess. E3 is currently in full swing, which I’ll hopefully be able to talk about later this week. Aside from that, my Pathfinder’s group met up on Saturday and had a very quick encounter in an arena. My cleric’s healing abilities were put to the test but fortunately everyone made it out of the encounter relatively unscathed. I guess that is enough of my waffling, let’s get down to what else I’ve been up this week…
What have I been reading?
I finished the fifth volume of Sword Art Online, which has continued to demonstrate that, in my opinion, the light novels are better than the anime series. The author, Reki Kawahara, seems to take the time to expand on the character’s backstories and personal lives, as well as giving more detail about the gaming worlds they visit. Still, in either format, Sinon is still my favourite character.
I am almost finished Age of Swords by Michael J, Sullivan, I have about fifty or so pages to go. Its proving to be an excellent read that builds on the first book. I would say that at the moment, I still prefer The Riyria Revelations/Chronicles but that’s because I think it will be difficult to top the Hadrian and Royce dynamic.
What have I been playing?
Like I said in this post’s title, I finished it!! I finally after nearly two months, since I started it, I’ve finished Assassin’s Creed III. Not just that, but I’ve also managed to finish its DLC as well, The Tyranny of King Washington. Both were a real struggle to finish, mainly because I found them so boring. I will say that the DLC, at least, tried to change things up with spirit animals and a plot focusing on an alternate history. I’m just so relieved I can uninstall that game and never play it again. At some point, I will be writing a review for Assassin’s Creed III, which I’ll try and include some positive points in!
I’ve also managed to play a lot more Elder Scrolls Online this week. My High Elf character has now reached level 41 and I’ve started to enter the PvP zone, in order to collect more lorebooks and skyshards. I was also able to play some more ESO with my friend, where our characters managed to reach the crazy level of level 15. Here are a couple of goofy screenshots, one showing my friend briefly turning invisible and the other where they are swimming while reading a map. Enjoy!
Aside from those two games, I also managed to play a little more of Final Fantasy XIV, after a few months away.
