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.
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!
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.
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.
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.

I apologize in advance for the lack of photos and a wall of text, I got a lot going on in my head, and I just can’t be bothered at the moment to find things that illustrate my angst towards this game. So I leave you with some suspicious breakfast cereal:
So…how suspicious we talkin’? Like, “unidentifiable fruit flavor” suspicious, or “the wheat was blended with a select choice of orphan blood” suspicious?
Ahhh, Deus Ex, how I love thee. Chop up my limbs and glue me to a particle accelerator, then inject my veins with tiny microscopic robots. My body is ready.
So I have finished the most recent extension to the Deux Ex universe: Mankind Divided. And, it was a good game. Which is my problem with it. Good game. Period. Not an excellent game. Or even a solid game. Continue reading ODIN NEVER ASKED FOR THIS
