Syp’s gaming goals for December 2018

November 2018 in review

  • Easily, the entire month was dominated by my excitement for and subsequent adventures on Lord of the Rings Online’s new progression server, Anor. While I dinked around with a few classes, I ended up sticking with my initial choice of Hobbit Minstrel and had a great time leveling, questing, and even grouping.
  • I officially ended my current run in World of Warcraft, as Battle for Azeroth and Patch 8.1 feel like they have nothing exciting to offer me. I even stored all my auction house inventory!
  • Star Wars: The Old Republic got a couple of play sessions, but no where near as many as I had anticipated putting in. I’m on the fence whether or not to continue right now.
  • I couldn’t wait for Fallout 76, but when it came I was less-than-enthused due to my LOTRO fever and the half-and-half nature of the game design. I did get in a few short adventuring sessions, but it wasn’t the ride I had anticipated.
  • Two Dungeons and Dragons Online grouping nights kept my social needs met, and we had fun wrapping up Waterworks.
  • I wrapped up a full playthrough of the classic adventure game Grim Fandango.
  • I also got in one last WildStar run before it shut down.

December 2018’s goals

  • I think it’s entirely reasonable to expect that my LOTRO Minstrel will be at level 50 by the end of the month, although I doubt I’ll be through all of the content by then. If I’ve only got one or two zones left by the 31st, that’ll be a good run.
  • I haven’t quite given up on Fallout 76, so I’m sure I’ll poke my head in there now and then.
  • I feel like I’ve narrowed my MMO gaming stable down to, uh, one game and that makes me a bit nervous. I’m going to try or return to a few more titles this month to see if any have potential stickiness — FFXIV, Path of Exile, and Star Citizen are all possibilities.
  • I want to finish Pillars of Eternity this month and start in on another single-player RPG. There. I’ve put that out there to keep myself accountable.
  • In addition to group time, I may get back to my Artificer on DDO and see if I can’t wrap up Mists of Ravenloft.
  • And that’s pretty much it. There aren’t any big releases I want, and I’m sure that the holiday schedule will be crazy enough as it is.

    I’m planning to return to SW:TOR for Jedi Under Siege. Now that Nadia’s back, maybe I’ll finally get my consular caught up. I’m also continuing to poke around ESO, and I may or may not play more Aion.

    Also, my friends have shown a surprising amount of interest in my TSW homebrew for D&D, so I’m trying to get that into a playable state. Dark Days are coming!

    I feel like Path of Exile might be a bit too unrelentingly grim and numbers-heavy for your tastes. Prove me wrong! 😉

    Ohhhhhhh, a tabletop TSW game sounds awesome!!!

    Curious to see how Fallout 76 goes as Bethesda continues to stomp the bugs out of it.
