We are now into October, which means Hallowe’en is just around the corner! OK, I know its almost a month away and as someone who enjoys horror themed media, I can’t help but love this day. So, to get hyped for Hallowe’en, all this month my posts are going to be horror themed. Don’t worry, I’m not doing another 30 day challenge, I’m just putting a spooky, scary spin on my posts. Enjoy!
What have I been reading?
I’ve finished reading Death Masks by Jim Butcher, the fifth book in the Dresden Files series. It was nice seeing a familiar face return to the series and also see the introduction of Ivy, an incredibly cute child who is also simultaneously scary at the same time. While I am loving re-reading the series, I’m going to take a break, so I don’t get burned out. I am currently reading The Death of Dulgath, the third book in the Riyria Chronicles by Michael J. Sullivan. Anyone who’s read this blog knows I’m a bit of fan of the Riyria Chronicles and the previous series, the Riyria Revelations. If you like epic fantasy, I highly recommend these two series.
What have I been playing?
In Elder Scrolls Online, I have been dabbling in the Thieves Guild DLC. All the sneaking around guards is slowly destroying my nerves, but I’m loving it. I playing a lot more of Guild Wars 2 than I expected, my character is still in the second zone but is at level 21 and I;m about to start chapter 2 of my personal quest. In Final Fantasy XIV, I’m still trying to complete the Yokai Watch event, I’ve managed to acquire a couple more minions but I haven’t made much progress on the any of the legendary weapons. At this point, I’m trying to complete it because I am stubborn and will not let this event beat me.
I’ve also been diving back into Total War: Warhammer, in preparation for the sequel that I forgot to set to download. Yes I am an idiot. Still, I’m loving playing the Bretonnians and the Wood Elves, so not a complete loss. At my brother’s suggestion, I’ve been playing Watch_Dogs, which is frustrating me to no end. I can see its potential but there are some really stupid game design choice, like not allowing you to opt out of the multiplayer portion of the game; which means players can invade your game to hack your profile, even when you’re trying to do things that require stealth and concentration. Still, I’m going to preserve with it for now.
What am I blogging about?
I’ll have a Recommended Gaming post up on Thursday. On Friday, the next Humble Monthly Bundle will be unlocked, so my unboxing post will be up on Saturday.
That’s it from me for this week. I hope your week goes OK and I hope to talk to you guys soon!
