Dynamax Dat Phat Beat! (Pokémon Sword)

Holy crap!! Pokémon sure has come a long way since I peaced out on the series after the Gold/Silver era. I’m in shock and awe over here…

Don’t get me wrong! It’s not like I hated the games after Gold/Silver or anything. Young me just lost interest in the series after that generation for whatever reason.

“Gotta catch ’em all!” was starting to feel way too overwhelming, I guess. I mean, I had a hard enough time keeping tabs on 251… now there’s, what? 800+ types of the lil’ pocket monsters crawling around?? That’s a crazy number that would take forever to acquire. Wow.

Troubling Tomahawk From Grand Theft Auto V

Mwahahaha!! My crazed criminal alter ego Genni and I had lots of fun together this past Sunday night/Monday morning. Yep. I was a sleepless wreck for work from home yesterday (rolling out of bed 5 minutes before my shift FTW), but dammit, it was worth it.

Genni and I hadn’t really spent a lot of time together before that. Let’s see… I wasted a bunch of the starter money on tattoos, cars, and properties after she was created. Oh! And she had a blast hanging out with the lovely Later Levels crew plus the dashing Dan of nowisgames.com on a live Twitch stream last Wednesday.

Well… she mostly got drunk and died a lot, but it was the best time ever once technology worked! She went up to Rank 2 from all the chaos as a bonus. That was also my first time “on-air gaming” and it was pretty freaking cool, and only a tiny bit terrifying. Shout-out again to Later Levels for the invite!

Necessary Necessities From Grand Theft Auto V

Lucky me got to buy the fancy digital Premium Edition of Grand Theft Auto V for only $14.99 CAD the other day! Included in that was a nice $1,000,000 in the bank to get my online character, Genni, off to a great start in Los Santos. Of course, I have to be careful and spend that money wisely!

My very first stop was the local tattoo parlor to get a spartan sleeve on her left arm, and a skull-ace design on her right arm. Next stop was the salon to dye her hair purple, because everything is better with colorful hair, no? And finally, a clothing store to buy a badass biker jacket. Oh and I may have bought a house using my phone… how convenient!

All in all, I spent about $400,000 in 10 minutes. See. I’m totally responsible with money over here and only got the necessary necessities for Genni.

I should probably actually focus on leveling her now… or maybe go car shopping!

Genni the Trainwreck From Grand Theft Auto V

Ow! Broken hearts suck, but they are a part of life that can’t be avoided. True strength comes from always picking yourself up no matter how many times fate shatters your soul. Weep not for paths that didn’t happen. Just carry on the path you’re given, as much as it seems to suck.

I’ll stop being a drama queen now… my feelz are oversensitive, man. I will just say fate dealt me one of those crushing heartbreak thingys this week and I escaped to the land of Grand Theft Auto V to ease my pain (also ice cream, good friends, and supportive cats are awesome).

Like Elder Scrolls Online, the blame for the impulse-jumping-into GTA Online goes directly to the Later Levels crew. Seeing all the pew pew awesomeness on their streams… how can I not want to get back into stealing cars and blowing up stuff?

My alter ego on Twitch is genni_glen_thill so I named my criminal avatar in her honor. I’ve only scratched the surface of GTA Online and am totally looking forward to being harassed by higher level players who are jerks very soon.

Badass Friga Bearfist From Elder Scrolls Online

Have you ever just clicked with an insignificant quest NPC you’ve spent several seconds talking with, and know you will never see them again, ever, after their minor part in the overall quest is over? That would be Friga Bearfist for me!

I finally finished the freaking Sun-in-Shadow quest line tonight (she needs to learn to let go, man) and wandered back down toward Vivec City. One side quest led to another and I stumbled upon The Scarlet Judge’s quest line.

He’s a total vigilante badass, by the way. My natural Chaotic Good character alignment immediately fell in love with him. I so want to hug him really tightly. Ahem. I’m not far into his quest thus far, but one of the first things to do was get some testimony from some unfortunate slave-prisoners nearby (and murder the thugs in the area). That’s where I met Friga Bearfist!

She certainly hasn’t let her current imprisonment dampen her fiery spirit. Based on the few lines of dialog with her, she seems to really love punching idiots and I highly approve of that. Punching a jackass in the face is such a therapeutic release and something I wish was more socially acceptable in our world full of idiots.

Yup. I’d definitely love to grab a drink with you sometime, Friga. There’s no doubt in my mind you and my Orc Dragonknight would be BFFs. I’ll also probably forget you in a few days, but will always be reminded of you thanks to this post. That’s the power of blogging right there!

Yeah. There’s a high probability tomorrow’s post will be a screenshot of The Scarlet Judge. We shall see what happens with him! Carry on, internet.

Bounty Bound From Elder Scrolls Online

I won’t lie… there is a slight chance that for the rest of my blogging career my posts will just be screenshots of Elder Scrolls Online. And you know what? I’ve embraced that possibility. I haven’t played an MMO since I quit World of Warcraft in 2015. It’s so good to be back on the wagon when the real world is falling apart!

Today’s screenshot triggered topic: Oh, man… I’m terrible at stealthing in video games. I’ve only done two required stealthing sections thus far in ESO. One resulted in the death of a guard (my sword slipped, I swear), servants screaming, and my Orc paying the authorities 85 gold coins to make her Bounty go away. Oops!

Stealth event two went… better? I didn’t accidentally on purpose kill anyone this time, the servants still screamed, I got killed to be respawned next to the person I was illegally getting the item for (convenient!), and my Orc only had to pay 35 gold to get her innocence back. Yeah. That’s definitely better, I think!

It might be easier on NPCs in the realm if I just offered to buy any future quest items I’m required to steal. It certainly cuts out the bounty collector guards as middlemen and puts the profits solely with the people I’m stealing stuff from.

Disgruntled Dragonknight From Elder Scrolls Online

I actually don’t want to spend much time doing blog things today, and that’s okay! Recognizing when you’re just not into a hobby and stepping back from it is an important skill I’ve finally mastered. Forcing yourself to do unnecessary things that are supposed to be fun leads to burnouts and self-destruction. I know that trip all too well…

Anyway, I just started playing Elder Scrolls Online on the weekend (entirely Later Levels‘ fault) and I want to do that more right now. So I’m just going to say I love the game, my Orc Dragonknight is a total badass, and here’s a screenshot of her being cranky in Sun-in-Shadow’s fancy new hireling house (working on that quest line now) for today’s Blapril post. Enjoy!

Flamingo Fountain From Fallout 4

My stress level is completely freaking maxed out, man. I won’t address the microscopic elephant in the room directly (you know who you are, you relentless little packet of replicating RNA… damn you!) but I literally can’t get any more upset no matter what else goes catastrophically wrong in my life. It’s an emotional state of eerie stressed serenity. Yeah. It’s hard to describe. I’ll be okay… probably.

Anyway, I heard this really cool internet togetherness event was happening called Blapril, where you are basically challenged to do a post a day in April 2020 and share in on a wonderful community objective. Now, normally things on this scale require lots of planning and whatnot, but nah. I just jumped in blindly and am gonna bumble my way through this! It’s kinda like how I handle everything in my life these days. And since I’m incapable of being any more stressed than I already am, it’s the perfect project!

So let’s pull some content out of my head while I slowly descend into madness over here, shall we? Hm. Well, I really love taking screenshots in video games. I bought a capture card just to give my classic consoles that functionality and have too many GBs of screenshots saved from various games. Might as well share some!
