Alright ladies, who is a gamer??

Recommended Posts

I go through gamer phases.  I used to really be into WoW (like 8 hrs+ a day on it), but then it just got too dumbed down for me. Every once in a while though I have a ping to pick it back up again, but I never do.

 

I was a vanilla-WoW raider. I totally get what you're saying. I remember it taking our raid group forever to clear BWL back in the day... AQ40, original Naxx, original ZG...

 

With each expansion it just seemed to get dumbed down more, and recently I went back for a month, and I swear, it was like a vending machine. Pull handle, kill 10 mobs in a minute or less, come back and it dispenses a piece of green gear that makes your previous-expension-end-game-raid-epics obsolete. I was sincerely BORED. This, from the girl who used to spend hours trying to get up to every nigh-unreachable place in the game back in vanilla.

Dumbed down but I still manage to die every day :) lol

I think WoW players really are missing something now... it's all about getting to the top as quick as possible and you miss the story when you do that.  It's so much more satisfying to down that particular boss when you've been invested in hunting it down and working to prepare yourself and your group for that particular battle.  @Devotee You hit the nail on the head by saying it's like a vending machine now.

 

My boyfriend plays Elder Scrolls Online once in a while, he seems to enjoy it but I haven't tried it myself.

I'm straight up addicted to Fallout New Vegas like its no ones business. But the bf has gotten me into LoL recently (lvl 10 witches). Skyrim is definitely my jam after that. I've got nothing else for now :P

I really enjoy gaming, but I go in spurts. I could play for 6 hours at a time for a few days, then not game at all for a few months. I have a PS3 that I bought just so I could play the Assassin's Creed series. I also pop in Dragon Age once in a while. I like playing The Sims 3 on my PC. I used to be really into Everquest when it first came out and for the first few expansions. Overall, fantasy RPG's is where it's at for me!

 

I have the new Assassin's Creed, Shadow of Mordor, and the new Dragon Age on my wishlist, but since I'm super busy until January I will most likely be able to hold off on buying them until they go on sale.   B)

Do any of you play Elder Scrolls Online? I just recently picked up Skyrim on a whim (I've been an MMO player rather than a single-player-game player for ages) and it's completely eaten my brain. I've heard a lot of negatives about ESO, and I was wondering about your experiences.

 

Also: How many of you have a ready-made mental list of excuses to use in place of 'I slept late because I was up all night playing Game Of Your Choice'? :D

I played the beta when it came out. It wasn't as organized as WoW is. It was hard to tell which quest you and your friends were on, or who was who because they all looked the same. I did like how you could make your character very customized but everything else I wasn't fond of. I would pick WoW any day over ESO

I used to play games.... all my childhood up until February 2013. I was playing Ninokuni: Wrath of the White Witch, and once I got to the Casino, I just quit. I used to follow gaming news on Andriasang, Kotaku, and Siliconera. I dropped games in total, and focused on my work and my life. In March of this year, I stopped by a gamestop just to browse, and noticed that Deception 4 came out for the PS3. Never even knew it was in development, and I freaked, since it's one of my favorite series of all time.... so, a week later, I had to buy it (along with the two Atelier games of Dusk, since I love the Atelier games too) and I played both of them for a shared total of a month's time. Just short of platinuming Deception 4, and stopping possibly midway through Ayesha, I stopped gaming again and haven't played it since.

 

 

.....excluding free time at work, I have a hacked PSP, so I play NES games here and there. ;)

I used to be a gamer many years ago. Used to play Lineage II  online. It was fun, but a lot of time consuming, so I gave up with online gaming. Sometimes I play single player adventure games.

I love Ninokuni and all of the Atelier games.  Going along that same sort of vein, I really enjoyed Folklore.

I got Dragon Age Inquisition on release and was on my fourth file by the second week of having it. I destroyed that game and managed to get decent grades. -pats self on back- I took a break for basically the whole month of December because I made myself sick of it haha. I'll be back soon though... soon.

 

Also got the newest Pokemon game (Sapphire, whoop whoop!), and Bravely Default. Loving BD. It's got the classic job system from FFIII, with less shallow characters and WAY better graphics. It's going to take me forever to beat it because I'm obsessed with maxing out Jobs.

 

The Bae got a copy of Metro 2023 Last Light and The Last of Us from me for Christmas. I'm probably going to start The Last of Us while he plays M2023. I'm making the most of this break before school, dammit!

I'm a sad gamer. I have several licensing exams coming up and am not allowing myself to really get into any games until they are over. Also, no MMOs that require a sub until we are dual income again. My inlaws gave us a PS4 for Christmas and we picked up some awesome games during the December sales. I've wistfully watched my husband play, who deserves it after having finished law school and the bar. As I type he's on I don't know what hour of DA:I, with Destiny and Mordor waiting in the wings, along with our co-op game of Divinity Original Sin that I put on hiatus while studying. 

 

I can't wait for these exams to be done and off my mind.

It's all about the gear and the gold now. You can buy winning gear from running dungeons and playing the AH. I miss the days when I made most of my good pre-raid gear...

I just got Shadow of Mordor myself for Xmas (along with a system upgrade with an awesome new sound system and video card!), but I won't let myself touch it until I've gotten my blog up and running at last, so I'm eagerly awaiting it.

DA:I has come highly recommended by a friend who got it for Xmas, so that's probably on my future list. I also picked up a couple of the Shadowrun games cheap from Steam, so those are lingering too. 

 

Does anyone play any of the FTP MMOs? I do a little DDO but it's more of a 'kill time while I make phone calls' thing.

I am :) I'm pretty picky with games though, i lean towards ones with really strong characters and stories.
At the moment I'm pretty obsessed with Dragon Age, but also play Assassin's Creed, Mass Effect, WoW, The Old Republic online, Starcraft2, Total War and miscellaneous others (and of course old school games like Rise of Nations, AoE, Jedi Knight etc) :)
I so want the new Shadow of Mordor game, but after spending a ridiculous amount of time playing Dragon Age Inquisition (and sacrificing a lot of my social life <_< ) I feel like I need to give it a rest before I dive into a new game ;)

Yeah it is. My shammy hits like a bunny right now. I'm liking my mage. But i'm getting really tired of leveling. I already have 3 100s.  I want new stuff! Like the 100 jungle area :)

Hey gals! 

 

I've been gaming for some time. I love it. I have a PS3 and a PS4 also got a self build watercooled pc to play games on.

 

I play BF4 almost every night on the pc (I started to get better but this week I'm getting bad matches again :()

Latest game I finished that has eaten up my christmas holiday was Dragon Age Inquisition, damn I loved that game. I picked up AC Unity but I stop playing it after 15 minutes :(. Never finished Black Flag either, I hated the ship combat. Also picked up Far Cry 4 still have to start. 

 

My all time favorite game that I probably played way to much is the Mass Effect series.

 

Also loved all the Uncharted games.

 

I've got so many games, played soo many. And still have many more to play. :)

 

Nice reading this thread

I didn't even realize this was a thread!  I game frequently... Some of my favorites are the Zelda games (esp for the N64), Pokemon, and Skyrim....God I love Skyrim!

 

Recently played through Shadow of Mordor (which if you haven't played it yet feels like a mash up of Batman, Assassin's creed, and a touch of Skyrim).

 

Currently playing through GTA V. I'm roughly half way done with the offline game. I figured I would start with that since this is my first GTA game and didn't want to jump straight into playing online.

I started Shadow of Mordor on pc but stopped when I got to the second area (reason: Dragon Age) should get back to it and it is indeed a mix of those games :D

 

Had lots of fun with gta v on ps3, I wanted to replay it on pc but damn it, now it's delayed. Never tested the multiplayer out.

 

I also looved Tomb Raider and I'm very angry that the next one will be a Xbox One timed exclusive, I'm not getting another console.

I first read this quickly and thought "Oh noes, I'm missing the Easter activities!" and then remembered that it was January and re-read more carefully. >.>  One of my favorite things in WoW is doing the egg hunt as a SPriest. Shadow Bunny Sprint FTW! It was like my little bit of zen. 

 

My husband and I stopped playing partway through Cata and had little interest in MoP. However, WoD has us both curious. He's trying to motivate me through studying for licensing exams with the promise of WoW and shadow bunnies, though I'm seriously doubting that I'll feel like I can safely pick up an MMO by that point.

LOL you missed christmas, but not easter yet. I like the expansion but having 3 100s it's very time consuming with the garrisons and keeping up on missions and work orders. I feel like I'm constantly farming, but making good gold I feel like. We play on blackhand (hordies) if you guys ever decide to play again! :D

Hmmm, that sounds like I really need to be good about assessing my study schedule and free time before hopping back in the game, even more so than before. Although I'm sure I'll be busy first leveling up from 85, possibly while crying first world tears over whatever it is they did to my classes. 

 

For the Horde!  ;) On Dalaran, though. We used to be on the Oceanic Aman'Thul until we moved back to the US time zones. Does what server you're on still basically restrict interaction with other servers? I saw some mention of changes, but have honestly not kept up.

Leveling is such a pain in the ass. Not being able to fly makes it so difficult since you aggro everything. Our server merged with Galakrond, I don't know why, maybe it was low pop or something. We could still do dungeons and raids cross server, but we couldn't be in the same guild or anything. They did change a ton of things in the game, they took so many buttons out and dumbed it down a ton. And nothing is balanced right now. My sham which was my main used to hit like a truck and now i struggle with my dps, while my mage does a lot more damage with crappy gear. Work out your schedule! :D We love having friends to do things with :)

    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.   
    • Something amazing for No Buy - Project Pan - Project Use It Up followers - I was reading the comments section of a Hannah Louise Poston video (Lots of Empties, published 1/21/2020) and I heard about a beauty shop called Credo that has a special recycling bin for cosmetics. Apparently if you bring your empties in for them to recycle, they give you rewards points for new things. And you can bring in any empties, not just things from their shop, although they don't take nail polish, nail polish remover, or perfume. Wow, I love that. What an inspiration for us to stay with our projects. There is no Credo store near me though. They are only in the major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., but maybe they will expand. Maybe they will find a way to let us mail in our empties? Or maybe I will take a trip someday, if I am good on my No Buy for a long time ... I could get my eyebrows done at their store too. Who knows. They do have an online shop also and they give three samples with orders. They have beautiful things. I think I will sign up with their site and start saving my empties up (instead of putting them in my neighborhood recycling); this may a coming trend! It's inspiring.  I always read the comments sections of No Buy videos on YouTube. I always find great tips and inspiration.
