Syp’s Gaming Goals for February 2019

January 2019 in review

  • The theme of this month was “Finally clicking with Elder Scrolls Online,” and I am so glad that happened. After a few aborted starts over the past year or so, I am now deep into the ESO groove with a great month of questing, partying, and leveling under my belt. I got my Warden to level 16, went through most of Morrowind’s content, enjoyed a few grouping experiences, and started to figure out the ins and outs of the game. Oh, and I got me a house.
  • My adventures on Lord of the Rings Online’s progression server continued as I took my level 50 Minstrel through the frozen north of Forochel. She’s just about done with the content in this quarter!
  • Our Dungeons and Dragons Online group leveled to 9 and tackled various quests including White Plume Mountain and House P missions.
  • I petered out in FFXIV after a few weeks of intense play, and I let my subscription lapse.
  • My Quest for Glory IV playthrough went well, although I did not get near to finishing it as I had hoped by the end of the month.
  • I finally finished up Pillars of Eternity, which took me most of 2018 to do! I also spent more time trying out other titles, such as CrossCode, Return to Obra Dinn, and The Unavowed.

February 2019’s goals

  • As I’ve already stated on this blog, I’ve got a plan to wrap up the relatively small remainder of Shadows of Angmar content in LOTRO before the March unlock. Nothing too exciting there, but it should be satisfying to have it all done.
  • Once I wrap things up in Morrowind, I’ll be doubling back to start on the base game content in Elder Scrolls Online. The other expansions can wait — at least for now!
  • I expect that we’ll be exploring more level 10 instances in DDO, and I am planning on putting in at least a week of regular play in Warframe with MOP’s Bree to see if we can actually get into this popular scifi title.
  • Aside from MMOs, I really want to wrap up Quest for Glory IV soon in order to start the next retro series. I also have more Try-It Tuesday titles lined up for experimentation, so if I get at least two of those in this month, I’ll be happy. Any suggestions?

    So after 50 levels, how do you like your class choice in Lotro?

    Warframe? Really? That will be interesting to see your impressions of it.

    It’s not the type of game I expected to like, but it hooked me good and has been my primary game for the last 14 months or so. Still go through ebbs and flows on it, but overall quite enjoy it. I look forward to your posts about trying it out.

    If you’re continuing with ESO, I strongly advise picking up the Thieves’ Guild DLC at some point. It’s probably the best thing they’ve done to date.

    For my part, despite early reservations I have developed a cautious optimism for Anthem, so I’ll be jumping into that at the end of the month. Before then, I have another hour or two of content left to finish getting my consular caught-up in SWTOR, but I’m not sure what I’ll play other than that. I had a weird idea to jump back into WoW without subscribing and just puttering around low level zones with a Void Elf or something.

    Also outside the virtual realm there will be much more D&D. My TSW homebrew campaign has been delayed by illness, but I hope to finish it soon, plus the second campaign where I play a sorcerer is finally starting up again, and some of my friends are going to start running drop-in sessions that I may occasionally attend. I have a Dwarf cleric I want to try out…

    If you have a controller for your PC, then I suggest trying Celeste. Alternatively, you can try Into the Breach (same devs as FTL).

    or something really old school, like Creeper World.

    Celeste defintiely has gotten some acclaim, it’s on my list somewhere!

    I did get the Thieves Guild DLC on your (and others’) recommendation — we’ll see how that goes!

  7. Syp February 3, 2019 / 8:25 pm

    I’m very happy with the Minstrel. Laid-back scream combat. Works for me.
