Joe's Kinda Okay Weekend, 1/27/2020



Short Divinity: Original Sin 2 stream today, due to bad sleep (dream/nightmare-filled, it's as though I hadn't slept at all), so I ended up cutting it off after a couple of hours in.

But otherwise, as for the game itself I managed to escape Fort Joy, and am now running around the something or another Marshes (can't remember the name).

But my interest in this game is on the wane right now - especially after finding that a lot of the battles I've been fighting recently are basically unwinnable - so there's a good chance I might start up another game on Sunday. Why (some of this is carryover from my first time playing this game)?:

• You can't use both controller and mouse/keyboard in this game, only one or the other. Makes things very tedious, since some things work better with a controller and other things work better with a mouse/keyboard (side note: it's also one of the reasons why FF XIV is my favorite MMO. You can use both, unlike WoW or Runescape, and most other games).

• Quickloading/quicksaving takes too long, about as long as it does to just do a normal save/load. Doesn't make much sense, at least theoretically. Makes me save far less often than I should.

• Playing solo doesn't seem so feasible. Enemies have too many ways to really fuck me over in this game. It's like I have to have a full 4-man party in order to fill the required gaps. Definitely not what I signed up for. -_-, This is especially bad when you factor in.....

• The double cost of abilities, in both action points (refreshes every turn) and Cooldowns (refreshes after several turns). Use one ability, and I can't use it for several turns. If this doesn't kill my enemies in one turn, I'm basically forced to flee, since their retaliation means that I'll be glued and screwed for sure. Abilities should either cost a resource or incur a cooldown, but not both.

So, for my next sessions, unless I change my mind, will be Baldur's Gate 2 again. *sigh*


Played Baldur's Gate 2 this time (see above), and had a good time. Did some quests, leveled up, and made some money (surprisingly without having to steal anything :O).


Super light workout this morning, only doing about 10 or so incline push-ups and about 5-6 chest dips, just enough for a slight burn. My shoulders and right bicep have been sore all week, so I'm trying to take it easy.

Streamed some FF XIV today. A full session this time. I started off by working on my sammy, running hunts, Fairy beast tribe quests, a leveling roulette, and a trust dungeon (Holminster Switch). And he finally reached level 80!

I forgot to save the in-game achievement, so this will have to do.

After that, I started crafting level 70 healer gear, but having to deal with an Inventory Management Puzzle, due to lack of inventory/retainer space, really drove me up a wall. But eventually I pulled it off, and my scholar is now good to go until level 72. :)>

I also ran my idle game in the background towards the end of my stream. In fact, for about the last 30 minutes of my stream it was what was on, and not the game itself, as I forgot to switch it off on my OBS program. Definitely one of the reasons I'm a small-time streamer.

And here's the records I played today:

Mr. Bungle - Self-Titled Debut
Tomita - Snowflakes Are Dancing
The Alan Parsons Project - Tales of Mystery and Imagination
Bill Cosby - 200 M.P.H.
Ted Nugent - Self-Titled Solo Debut

Okey dokey. Time to call it a night <Take care.> guys, and have a great day/night. ;)>

Ugh, nightmare sleep, Bleh! Also sleep where you feel like afterwards you did NOT sleep at all! ;-(

At least you got some exercise in.

Is there a reason you crafted 70 stuff? Practice? Exp? getting rid of crap?
380, (390?), stuff is really cheap now with the stones and they drop like candy.

The level 70 i385 HQ gear is actually better than the gear I had, in which a lot of it was still that i330 gear you can buy with Centurio Seals (I think) from the Stormblood expansion, so my scholar was long overdue for an upgrade. If there was better gear you can get with tomestones, I didn't know about it at the time.

Unfortunately I'm thinking that, between working out, such as it is, and working at my job, my body is crying "No mas!" Options are starting to get slim. :[
