Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 268

As with all rng equipment based grind games, I have immediately lost most of my interest and investment in Genshin.
I was doing lots of side quest things with the intention of just doing what I could do before moving on to the more difficult areas.
And the game decided to force a difficult level increase on me.

Now my DPS can’t keep up at all. The enemies have tens of thousand of health and I do 100 damage per hit on average.
I hate it when games punish you for not min-maxing dps.
I either need to spend a fortune getting better units for better combinations, or I need to stop doing what I was finding fun and do what they want me to do so I can play their game.
Awful design.

All I wanted to do was get collectibles and achievements before I moved on to the next town.
And now I spend thirty minutes fighting bosses and failing every time trial challenge there is.
Way to ruin it for me.

And it’s not like there’s a readily available fix too because upgrading my equipment needs items from the next town which is probably a nightmare to reach because all the enemy levels have doubled!

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 267

I was intending to do some challenges on Tears of Avia to write guides for them since people were struggling with the difficulty.
But then I got distracted.

Now I have too many games to balance once more.
I want to complete the Tears of Avia achievements, I’m also supposed to be playing on the shared Empyrion server my discord has once more, and on top of that I’m playing Genshin Impact in my spare time now.
As a result I no longer have enough time for my games. If it’s only two then I can balance them, one for streams and one for free time off stream.
But with three it becomes awkward.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 266

Well I finished the Mondstadt arc as you could call it of Genshin Impact.
I guess it works as a plot hook!
Now I guess I just need to hunt all those orb thingies and finish off the area achievement so my OCD can let me move on to the next town…
But let’s do that when it’s not 6am…

Yes I copied this straight from discord. I was too tired to think of some new way to phrase it.

Blue Sky Chapter 23

I know this is really random but has anyone else seen Gmails new icon and loading animation?
It’s way too colourful!
It looks more like someone is trying to copy windows with the logo!

I really loved the old one because it was really clever. The red outline on the envelope made an M shape.
Now they have the same thing but like a malformed windows logo.
Also the way it loads isn’t like an envelope anymore but like a vomiting rainbow expanding.
Terrible.

Not Sure, Another World Chapter 107 Part 2

I started playing Genshin Impact this weekend.
I mean it’s okay but I don’t really see what all the hype is about.
It’s a rather decent open world for PC so it’s impressive on phone I get that.

But like…
Everything else about it is done in plenty of other games. Without the atrocious gacha rates.
Seriously…I don’t think I get it?
The lore and story is pretty well done though so I’ll keep playing for that.

There are only about three characters that interest me too and I will probably never get them considering the gacha system so I have very little interest in bothering to roll.

Not Sure, Another World Chapter 107 Part 1

I finished my first Avia playthrough today, man the epilogues were strangely melancholic.
Like the great heroes save the world and then they sort of…just do whatever.
Noooooo!

Next time I’m going to try making different dialogue choices and see what happens in the ending.
Hopefully I can bring some kind of new ending to the party.
I heard if you change how you say things and what party members you use then the endings epilogue change quite a bit for the individuals. Although there’s only two proper endings for the story.

Well that’s just because I got really attached to some of these characters…
You should really give this game a play!

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 265

For the first time in basically forever I had writers block trying to write this post.
Mostly because…well I wasn’t really sure what to say?
I don’t know it’s a bit weird.

Normally I have a bunch of random stuff I can say, or at least something partially relevant to the story content, site or discord.
Failing that I can ramble about something that happened or a new hobby or just some dull private stuff.
Anyway regardless of the situation I usually have something but I just stared at this for about forty minutes trying to figure what to type.
In the end I have given up and decided to type about having nothing to type.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 264

So I have this idea for a short story but I have no idea how on Earth I would actually write it because it’s from the point of view of what would arguably be an animal.

But the basic premise is that some advanced human or alien civilization genetically engineered an ecosystem of large space organisms in place of building automated interplanetary infrastructure, and then long after that species went extinct or moved on that ecosystem kept on going.
So I’ve been building this map of how I imagine some form of ecosystem like this would operate.
Mainly for getting the necessary nutrients for organisms in space and moving them around. Given the artificial nature it’s all cooperation based so I focused on symbiotic relationships.

For example I thought of these really cool space fish that have these large photosynthetic and photoelectric frills that double as a form of locomotion for moving being planets. Then you could have these large jellyfish things that hover in the upper atmosphere of gas giants and collected gasses which they then exchange with the other organisms for the nutrients they need to live. And you could have these whale things that cruise through asteroid facilities to get the metal rich and water rich rocks.
So you could have the jellyfish and whales transfer material to the fish then they go towards the sun and use the sunlight for electrolysis and other processes to break them down and refine them, where they then fly back out to hand over the refined materials in exchange for the raw materials and the cycle repeats.

And you can expand to include each part of a chain needed for life. I think it’s strangely poetic.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 263

I finally managed to drag myself out of video game addiction this weekend to watch some anime.
I finished a few, started a few others.
Namely today it was Assault Thighs, Picked Up By Gods, Strike Witches and yesterday there was like a couple of others I forgot the name of but whatever.

Man Warlords was a let down.

Oh wait I meant Assault Lily not Assault Thighs.

Anyway, what do you suggest? I have a huge list to get through.
Million Lives, Irregular, Day I Became God…

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 262

Hey guys, I made this same post on a Not Sure, Another World chapter update too but I know the reader bases don’t entirely overlap so I’m going to say it here too!
It’s literally ad verbatim so feel free to skip if you’ve read it before.
So this week a small indie game that I have been supporting for quite a while finally released.
It’s called Tears of Avia, and it’s on XBOX and PC.

I really love this game, and the reviews for it right now are…middling at best.
So I’ve decided to try and share the love and throw it out at you guys.
It’s a SRPG/JRPG type hybrid that basically any anime fan will love! You can think of it something akin to Final Fantasy Tactics but…well less AAA.
And when I said small, I meant a small team, but there’s at least thirty hours of content in this game. At least. And that’s not including replayability and alternate endings and the hardcore mode.

The Steam link is here!

To celebrate its launch I’m thinking of doing a steam key giveaway too.
So let me know in the comments if you’re interested in a chance to win!
Also shameless plug of my twitch channel that has my ongoing playthrough. (I should be going live about an hour or so after this posts!)

Blue Sky Chapter 22

Steam trading cards are a really weird thing.
First of it’s painfully difficult to obtain them in any regular manner for unpopular or recently released games.
Crafting booster packs is a nightmare since it demands you buy games at a regular pace.
And buying cards from the market relies too heavily on supply-demand.
Also the prices are almost entirely random. I have a foil that some people are trying to sell for like 19 compared to the average of 0.2 of other cards!

Anyway this is the problem I find myself in for Tears of Avia currently.
It’s brand new so hardly anyone has the cards I need and if they do then they’ve jacked up the prices!
I’ve managed to craft one badge so far and I want the Level 5 and the Foil!
NOBODY EVEN HAS A FOIL CARD YET!

Steam sort this out! Please!
Also please buy this game and trade with me. Many thanks.

Not Sure, Another World Chapter 106

My new microphone I ordered months ago arrived today. It’s not bad.
It’s one of those you get what you paid for mics and I was a little conservative on my spending for this one.
That said it’s a huge step up from the headset mic I was using until this point!

I also get a relatively decent stand for it but nothing particularly special. If I wanted to do it seriously I wouldn’t have got a USB microphone but a proper audio one.
But well that’s how things go isn’t it.

Let’s hope I can get it all set up properly for using as it’s supposed to be used…as…well…a mic.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 261

I went to go and read some manga…
Then I realised I’ve had so many computer problems and changed components so often it’s lost my cache and I can’t remember my place.
Also I forgot what site I used to read on…
Guess I’m cursed.

Did I mention I have an SSD now? It’s so quiet!
It’s funny because now the only noise my PC makes is my fans…or my GPU screaming when loading something because it’s too powerful for my other components to handle and is actually held back. But to prevent that bottlenecking I basically have to replace my entire PC!
