Syp’s gaming goals for October

September in review

  • I finished up a full playthrough of West of Loathing, a rather funny western open-world RPG.
  • In Lord of the Rings Online, I blazed through Lhingris and then stuttered to a near-halt in Talath Úrui. Spiders, pit fighting, and jailbreaks were the normal for my activities here.
  • Shadowy Forest complete in Secret World Legends’ Transylvania, and a good chunk of Carpathian Fangs to boot!
  • I fiddled about a bit in both Dungeons and Dragons Online and Neverwinter. Haven’t fully committed to either game, but they’re nice distractions.
  • I finally returned to my KOTOR 2 retro gaming series with more adventures on Nar Shaddaa.
  • As for mobile, I spent most of my time playing both Fallout Shelter or Iron Marines.

October goals

  • At the bare minimum in LOTRO, I want to finish up Mordor’s Talath Úrui. Beyond that, if I can make progress into the next zone and spend some time doing Bilbo’s Haunted Burrow for cosmetics and housing decor, that would be just ducky.
  • I definitely want to get to Tokyo in Secret World Legends at some point this month. I don’t have to beat it, but I am keeping my eyes on the new content that should start coming out at the end of the year.
  • I might be up for a return to WildStar, however so brief, to see how it’s been doing in my absence. I’ve also been feeling the pull to head back to World of Warcraft, but I may hold off for one more month with this. I’m sure BlizzCon’s going to kick that back in when November arrives. Another possibility is Star Trek Online, because watching Discovery got me thinking about that game and a new character.
  • Or I could just focus down on SWL and LOTRO for now and maybe try out a few unexplored MMOs for Try It Tuesday. I need to get beyond my “comfort MMOs” once in a while.
  • I am planning on picking up Thimbleweed Park for mobile, since I’ve heard so many great things about this adventure game.
  • Can I get a SNES Classic? It’s certainly one of my side goals this month!
  • I have been keeping my eyes on the acclaimed Divinity: Original Sin 2. I really would like to play it, but I need to save my money right now. Maybe later in the month?
  • A few more KOTRO 2 gaming sessions would be dandy. Wrapping up this game sometime in the fall would make way for another title (I have my eyes on Day of the Tentacle).

    Star Trek Disaster … ummmmm Discovery sounds horrible and I’m not watching it but it did get me as well back into STO. Plus I just started a new Romulan PC and am really enjoying the storyline there.

    I wish the STO guys would get a chance to write a Trek series…

    May I suggest using my plan for returning to WoW? I am planning to wait until the first Tuesday in December when the weekly artifact knowledge bump is maxed out (14 weeks after 7.3 launch) and all the patch content is unlocked. I call it time-gating my subscription. Until then I am happy with FFXIV which lets me do absolutely everything in the game on a single character.

    I’m sticking with WoW for the time being, but I plan to let my sub lapse near the end of the month. The Age of Empires remaster awaits. Gonna get my wololo on. After that maybe some SW:TOR or ESO.
