February 2020 in review
- This was both a busy month and a weird month. I had a vacation, ordination exams, and a lot of other stuff packed into a shorter time span. So while I didn’t get as much game time overall, I did manage to spread out more as the month went along.
- Neverwinter remained a daily activity as I shot up into the 40s, plowed through questing areas, and started in on my first two campaigns with my Chaos Warlock.
- I found it hard to resist the lure of Star Trek Online, especially with all of the 10th anniversary giveaways and new missions. I started up a new Federation captain and had her piloting a tier 6 science ship from the start.
- After about a month of no activity in Lord of the Rings Online, things started to move forward once more thanks to the release of Riders of Rohan for the legendary server. I gamely started in on this huge expansion, seeing how many levels I could make by the month’s end.
- I did get to play the new investigation mission in Secret World Legends, which is a statement I didn’t think I’d ever be writing again on this blog.
- Elder Scrolls Online got a few play sessions — usually a mission apiece — as I attempted to wrap up Elsweyr. I also have been logging onto World of Warcraft trying to grind out my bee mount, which is a neverending task.
- For Retro Gaming, I finished up Toonstruck and dabbled a bit in Masters of Magic.
- I also had some fun building tiny houses in Sims 4, especially when I went on vacation and had the game on my laptop.
March 2020’s goals
- I’m not in a pressing hurry to advance in Neverwinter, Star Trek Online, or Elder Scrolls Online, so those will all get maybe a mission every night so I can inch things along across the board. If I get to level 50 in Neverwinter, 20s in Star Trek Online, and move on to a new ESO area, I’ll be happy.
- I have no illusions about finishing up LOTRO’s Riders of Rohan in a month, but it would be great to at least get halfway through it by March’s end. It’s hard to tell with the decreased XP rate, but hitting level 85 doesn’t seem out of the question, either.
- For Retro Gaming, I’ll be (re)attempting to blog through Chrono Trigger if the Steam version doesn’t barf on me like it did last time.
- I’m mulling over some single-player game options right now, but I haven’t made up my mind on what I want to do there. Leaning toward getting into Divinity Original Sin 2, as that’s been on my backlog for a while. I also would really like to check out Sea of Thieves one of these days, but… time. We’ll see.
What are you up to in gaming these days? I’m always interested to hear what everyone’s been playing, so sound off in the comments or on Twitter!
