Mandalorian Season 2 is coming and I’ve seen some folks draw some lines from Fallen Order to the trailer. I’ve wanted to play it for a while and with more Star Wars on the horizon, I figure, why not more Star Wars! What’s more, I was able to pick it up for pretty cheap from Epic.
It was a long trip but we’ve finally made it back to the bubble. The greatest thing I’ve learned from this whole thing is that if you’re heading out to explore by yourself, don’t bother with taking a Fleet Carrier. The hassle just doesn’t feel worth the benefits. It’s probably going to be a while before I do something like that again. Someday I want to visit Beagle Point but I’m in no rush. It was a really great trip, though.
Back in the day I was subscribed to Humble’s Monthly Bundle. This was before they had you choose from a list of games and just gave you a pile of games every month. So I’ve got a bunch of unclaimed steam keys. I was looking through them to offer some to my wife and noticed I had Mad Max in there. I rented it from Red Box when it came out back in 2015 and liked it. So I redeemed it and I’m playing it off an on. For its age, it’s still a pretty slick looking game.
Yeah that GTA RP thing fell out for me. I probably didn’t give it a fair shake. Maybe some other time.
Eve Echoes is pretty cool. I recently picked up a second hand iPad and it runs pretty well on it. Currently I’m working on figuring out how to make money in mining.
I’ve owned Dead by Daylight for a while now and I’ve been too afraid to play it. I’m a wuss when it comes to horror stuff. I can watch it fine. I watch d20monkey play it on twitch all the time… But some other friends have picked it up so I started playing as the killer alone. I’ve got a couple of games in as both killer and survivor, playing with friends. I’m liking it!
I missed last week’s playlist. I’m sorry about that. I also have more than enough content for a mission log update but, lazy. I’ll try to get one out this week!
Here’s what I played last week:
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020
I’ve joined a GTA V RP server. I’ve only got a couple of hours into it but I’m not sure I’ll stick with it. It’s cool and all but dropping in, not knowing anyone, not really sure what to do/what I can do, is a little jarring. I’ll give it more time, for sure…it’s just not exactly what I expected…could be the server I’m on. I don’t know.
And we’re gonna be stuck here for little bit. I just don’t have enough Tritium to get home and no one here is selling. So I’ve parked Colombia next to an ice ringed planet with a Tritium hot spot. I was never filling up Conveyor so I’ve switched Javelin from exploration to mining. I’m able to get a little over 100 tons a run in Javelin but at least I’m filling the hold and it’s usually pretty quick. The problem with Conveyor is probably my hardpoint configuration. I’m only running one SSD so I was running out of missiles before I even came close to being a quarter full. I can synth more, but then I’ll have to restock mats for that and that means pulling myself off mining…which slows the return.
So that’s actually what we’re doing now. This is what we’ve done.
How is it already August? Also, how is it only August?!
Here’s what I played last week:
I recently watched some clips of a streamer playing Portal 2 for the first time. It’s been a while since I’ve played either Portal so I’m giving them both a play-through again. I also started playing Wolfpack with some friends…that shit’s hard…but super, super fun.
We’re close to the end of this! There have been some amazing sights so far and there’s still more to see! We set out with a goal of traveling to Colonia, seeing the goods along the way and obtaining an Elite rank in Exploration. At this point I’m in Colonia, I’m absolutely wowing you with the sites, but we’re only 75% of the way to Elite! So we still got some more work. Let’s get to it.
