ODIN LIVES DOWN ON THE RANCH

This game….where do I even *begin* with THIS GAME? I mean it’s not like I have a *problem* or anything-

….ok maybe a little bit of one….

That last achievement though, I stg…I know *EXACTLY* what I am missing >:[

SO! The game of discussion today is the indie dev studio Monomi Park’s Slime Rancher. The premise is you have acquired a quaint little ranch out in Far Far Away, and you must obliterate your competition and take your place in the cutthroat empire of crystallized shit. I am only exaggerating a little bit, but I will have you guess about which part.

Stinky things, Freelance, and Cons! – Update on the World of Odin

HOLY BALLS What a month is has been. I can’t even process it all but now I am flying at the seat of my pants and I hope the fabric holds. Between medical issues, precarious financial situations, and opportunities, my organization tendencies are on overdrive.

I would like to start by showing off some #ThursdayAesthetic themes I have participated in on Twitter recently, because they were so damned beautiful

The themes were Protagonist and Antagonist. Continue reading Stinky things, Freelance, and Cons! – Update on the World of Odin

Battered and Bruised Updates – And Free books!

There has been a LOT going on in the world of Odin, some good, some not. As par for the course. Primarily, I have been dealing with a lot of medical bullshit, so my will to do anything has been put in front of a firing squad.

Despite all this I have been more vigilant in keeping up with my workout regimens, and gradually adding more to the load. The end goal for all of this is to git gud for my weekly HEMA sessions, which has been my “out” for mental health. A side effect, however, is that I am absolutely covered in bruises. I have to strategically put my arms in a specific angle in order to keep pressure off of them while typing >.< Continue reading Battered and Bruised Updates – And Free books!

THE CYCLE BEGINS AGAIN! And Also A Giveaway!

IT IS TIME.

Time to subject myself to the bittersweet writing cycle again. Nara’s saga has just begun to take shape, and she has a whole solar system to experience. With the shaky end of the publication phase of Sleepless Flame, I barely had any time to recover my wits. But I find myself in this weird creative limbo where I have no desire to work on any side projects. And the lure of the Outline Sirens is calling. ONCE MORE INTO THE FRAY.

THE TIMELINE AS IT IS:

A Billion Copies of Odin is a Terrifying Thing

We all know me and my love for stealth action games. And for hyperfuturistic games. So I poked around the Steam sales looking for MORE, and I happened upon this fascinating work called ECHO from UltraUltra, which is a Denmark based indie studio formed by veterans of the Hitman series, and not unfamiliar to the genre.

Guess what guys, I have MORE FEELINGS. This is certainly a unique experience that I would recommend to others, but there were a few small hangups that I found conflicting with my play.

Sneaky Assassinations….Or Not?

Quick Book Update for those who are interested: The manuscript is now out of my hands and in the power of my Editor. I should see it again sometime in January, then after a week or two of more edits, it should be good to go to final formatting. Cover art is pending as well, I should hopefully see that by the end of this month, so stay tuned~

And now I am in this weird phase of not knowing what to do with myself, so I tried this thing called “relaxing” and dusted off my Steam Library. I had forgotten about this little gem called Shadwen, and I was immediately drawn to it because of the protagonist:

And I am absolutely delighted to report that the story did not disappoint.

Odin Reviews Some Weenies

GETCHER MIND OUTTA THE GUTTER!

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen me squee over a delightful quad of vials with a backdrop of a rather surreal, though enjoyable painting (buttslol).

Also, if you know me very well, you would know that I LOVE perfume. A lot. It makes me feel nice feelings of nicety and warm.

And, in addition, Halloween has just passed, though I do tend to revel in the celebration all year round.

Using powers of deduction,  you might conclude that these vials are none other than Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs Halloweenies perfumes for the year 2017.

Good job, you critical thinker you. Continue reading Odin Reviews Some Weenies

Odin Does the Halloween Writer’s Tag

Since I do not have a progress report for you this week (spending the majority of my time crying in front of the first half of my manuscript as I reconstruct the entire thing while severely under-caffeinated), I figured I would do something appropriately festive for you guys, because the spooky season fills me with glee.

I got this tag from Caroline Huball’s Blog, so be sure to check it out if you would like to do it on your own.

1. Are you a scaredy cat or a horror aficionado?

Eh, that’s a complicated question. In terms of narrative fiction, I would enjoy it quite a lot (see further for caveat). But in movies and other media, I am not a fan of slasher and excessive gore, unless it’s done to a point where it is comical (i.e. The Thing, omfg I pulled a hernia laughing so hard at the abdomen teeth). Which is ironic, if you consider how violent my writing is. I’m not a fan of jumpscares either, I consider it a cheap tactic and I get real punchy when startled.

Odin Does Not Want To Remember

Remember Me Gameplay

We all should know by now that Odin loves Cyberpunk. I mean, really loves cyberpunk. Odin is currently writing a cyberpunk book, after all. Odin probably has an unhealthy obsession, but let’s not discuss that, shall we?

There is also a severe lack of content in the genre, especially ones with three dimensional female and enby characters that aren’t reduced to sex bots or used as a grim warning that women shouldn’t augment because HOOOORMOOOONES ooooooOOOOOooooooOOOOSCARY, (another reason why I am writing a damned book on the subject) And I was somewhat intrigued by the Capcom/DontNod release Remember Me.

But frustration does not even begin to encapsulate my experiences with this…game.

I have….feelings. Again.

…and I hate those.

So hunker down, grab a sammich and some tea, and settle in for a long ride on this gaming rant.
