August 2020 – Asundered!

Yes, I am aware asundered isn’t a word, but I don’t care! My website, my word rules. Ha! Anyway, welcome to my monthly wrap-up article! Let’s see what went down in my online life during these past 28-31 days…

And another month in 2020 bites the dust! The drama and despair that continues to assault our global society just seems… even more unreal. If anyone ever needs anyone to talk to, I’m here for ya!

We all got this. Love wins and we are only ever guaranteed to have a today. Make the best out of whatever life throws at you!

Seriously Geeky Sundays: Funny Guys, Cosplay, Here Be Monsters!

Oops! Totally fell behind on the awesome Just Geeking By‘s cool Seriously Geeky Sundays community event. I blame the fact I got addicted to Assassin’s Creed Syndicate this month and was caught up in other intensive blogging events I joined on whim. I wanna blog about everything, dammit!

Time for some serious catching up here. *cracks knuckles*

Welcome to this weird 3-week combo installment of me answering Heather’s prompts! This is going to be about comedy, cosplay and creeps. Definitely check out Heather’s creative prompts and take part in the fun if you want! I’m absolutely loving her questions so far.

So… without anymore intro babbling from me, here are my answers to Just Geeking By’s amusing, dressy, and horror-filled questions from the last few weeks. Thank you, Heather!

The Great London Trophy Hunt (Complete)

When the awesome Gaming Omnivore pitched a brilliant trophy hunt collaboration idea on the Later Levels Support Role Discord channel (all bloggers welcome there, by the way, so feel free to join) I was all for it. After some discussions we decided to set Assassin’s Creed Syndicate in our sights and blog about our journeys to platinum.

Here is what went down during the final week of my trophy hunt! You can see what happened during week 1 and 2 here and here.

TL;DR – Mission accomplished! Thanks to a bad migraine episode where I could hardly see anything and my arm and tongue went numb, I was on the verge of freaking the fuck out. I also didn’t have anyone around to reach out to so… yeah. That wasn’t fun.

To distract my panicking brain (only I can save me from me, after all), I focused on grinding out two of the most annoying trophies in Syndicate (running over 5,000 things with a carriage and playing 300 with 50 bad guys on a train roof). Focusing on those grinds and nothing else that was happening seriously helped me get through that. Thank you Evie and Jacob! ❤

Overall, I freaking loved my time with Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. Evie Frye is now one of my top 5 video game sheroes and I really enjoyed the story. Exploring Victorian-era London was such a treat! I also can’t praise the grappling hook mechanic enough.

Yup. My faith in the Assassin’s Creed series is restored.

My next platinum quest is going to be Mass Effect 3, in case anyone is curious. I’ve platinumed all the other Mass Effect games and I think I’m finally ready to jump back into BioWare’s universe after taking a much needed break from it.

Lightning Will Not Leave Me

This article is brought to you by the fifteenth Blaugust 2020 Promptapalooza topic presented by the awesome blogger Chestnut over at Game Girl Confessions: Tell us about a person(s) or thing(s) that has greatly influenced you.

This is the perfect opportunity to re-post an article I wrote in a previous blogging life. The TL;DR is that the fictional video game character Lightning Farron (and the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy) has greatly influenced who I am today. The following article describes why I love the games as best as it can be explained. It’s honestly more of a weird emotional attachment that doesn’t make much sense to anyone else, probably.

Also, I feel like this is a prime opportunity to show off my tattoo of Lightning Farron! The fact I have this character permanently etched on my arm should say A LOT about how much she means to me.

Enjoy my long deleted past self’s words about the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy!

What Will Always Be Lost

This article is brought to you by the twelfth Blaugust 2020 Promptapalooza topic presented by the awesome blogger SDWeasel over at Unidentified Signal Source: What’s something you’ve lost along the way that you would love to have back?

Loss is an unfortunate part of our lives, as much as I wish it freaking wasn’t. As we age we lose everything from frivolous material possessions to loved ones. And heck, we even lose the very essence of who we once were as time marches on. It’s crazy to think about how much our minds change as we are exposed to different events.

Creative Spaces

This article is brought to you by the eleventh Blaugust 2020 Promtapalooza topic presented by the awesome blogger Krikket over at Nerd Girl Thoughts: Tell us about your physical creative space, and how it influences your content creation.

Side note: Oops! Was so NOT planning to take a hiatus in the middle of Blaugust, but it is what it is. I got my prompt up on time, though! I’m happy about that.

Life has taught me my mental health needs to come first (and rather harshly, I might add), else I’ll pay for it dearly if I keep letting my feelz snowball into bad behaviors. I do intend to answer all of the prompts still, it’s just going to run over into a, uh, Bleptember…?

Whatever! I honestly don’t care about my brain’s drama anymore.

The Great London Trophy Hunt (Week 2)

When the awesome Gaming Omnivore pitched a brilliant trophy hunt collaboration idea on the Later Levels Support Role Discord channel (all bloggers welcome there, by the way, so feel free to join) I was all for it. After some discussions we decided to set Assassin’s Creed Syndicate in our sights and blog about our journeys to platinum.

Here is what went down during week 2 of my trophy hunt! You can see what happened during week 1 here.

The TL;DR version is I binged on side activities (Fight Clubs are the best) and my Assassin duo was pretty much maxed out before I completed Sequence 4 of the main story. Steamrolling my way to platinum now, baby!
