Recently, my sister got me back into Facebook with a game called Pearl's Peril. It's set in the late 1920's where Pearl's father was murdered and her grandfather missing. She finds out that she inherited an island which you can decorate any which way you want. You have to go about solving the case with Pearl. To do so, you unlock scenes in which you have to find stuff hidden about the scene. Here are some ss.

That's all you do but it's really nice.

Wow... I haven't seen a game company change something like this.

Because of the far majority of players disliking the gold member change regarding station points, they posted today and are keeping it the same as it is now instead of changing it. O_O

I'll never know and I'll have to stop speculating if I just lost the chance to get a prestige house every month hehe.

Also, double loyalty tokens (and all currency tokens) was supposed to run out in February. They are keeping that permanent for gold members AND adding more stuff you can get with them! :D

This is my current Skyrim character, a Bosmer (Wood Elf) named Hasathil. Weird name, I know, but it's Elder Scrolls lore-correct.

I think I did a pretty good job with her face.

This was taken in her own front garden. The kid behind her is Sissel, who Hasathil adopted after her (Sissel's) parents died. The Orc you can just see in the flower bed is Ghorbash the Iron Hand, Hasathil's follower.

So I said in a comment to [personal profile] albatrosswing that I was going to post some Skyrim glitches here. This is the latest that almost made me spew coffee out of my nose:

I'll post a pic of my current character later, if anyone is interested.

An interesting and somewhat exciting change to gold members (the ones who pay monthly fees) in EQ2. I'm one of them, but Joshypoo is silver. Starting in February all gold members will no longer receive 500 station points a month. Instead, you get a token that can be used to buy one item of up to 2000 station points each month. They say some things will be excluded, but there isn't a list yet and they've been silent on the forums even though their news topic is 30 pages long.

That's the tricky thing. You can only buy 1 item with it and if it happens to be 100 points the rest of the 2000 is gone. Right now you get 500 a month, but you can save it up.

It's got me excited and worried at the same time hehe. If I can buy character slots with them (1000 points) or a prestige house (usually 1300) once a month I'll be thrilled. If it's just mounts, furniture and cosmetics like armor I'll seriously be disappointed as I'm not interested in those things.

Like 8-9 out of 10 people on the forums are very unhappy with this though because they say they buy little things with their 500 a month points and already have tons of prestige homes and characters. I've only played since the end of September though and I've got 1 prestige home which, if you remember, is a Galleon that I got on sale Cyber Monday. :) There are a LOT of them and I haven't even looked at them all, but I do wish I could get a couple of the ones I've seen.

Oh and as far as the loyalty points you get for doing the daily tasks (2 for gold, 1 for silver and bronze members) I have 34 and noticed you can get this prestige home for 60 which looks epic from outside. When you zone in and look up at it, it's built into a mountain with the perfect number of rooms for me. :D So yes potentially I can get that this month if I don't need to get coin with them soon. :D

At the beginning of Frostfell (xmas) in EQ2, I changed Grandpop's outfit. :)

hehe. :)

I deleted Drecche the other bruiser. Just played some and leveled Grandpop from 14 to 17. :)

Hello friendlies! :D

Yesterday I exchanged gifts with Joshypoo in EQ2. :) He got me a collectible set that when I turned in got me a Gelatinous Cube house pet! :D Awesome! I didn't even know that existed. :)

So Frostfell is still going on. I'm still doing the daily crafting "raid" with Grandpop everyday. :) I've got him from level 47 carpenter to 74!!! Sadly, he's outleveled it hehe. The items you craft are level 70 and while they gave mucho xp for a long time, it's not so much anymore. :) Still, I plan to do it today because it's still free materials and I still get a huge boost from turning all the stuff in. :) Perhaps he'll get to level 76 today. :D

I'm going to delete Drecche my Half Vampire Bruiser eventually. He's also my weaponsmith. :/ Grandpop is also a level 15 bruiser and I decided I'm going to level his adventuring up because there are recipes you can't get without questing and being in higher level zones. I don't need two bruisers. :/

It's going to be sad and a long, painful process because for a while I really liked Drecche and fully decorated three houses he lived in. I have to transfer all the items now through the shared bank. >_< He's also level 40 and I put a lot of work into him. :/

But I've lost interest in him. I'll have a free character slot open and I'm considering a Half Vampire Coercer who will replace him as a weaponsmith. Joshypoo's main is actually like a level 55 or 57 weaponsmith and mine was 39 so I get that sort of stuff from him anyway. :)

Hmm, actually I really need to exchange all the items and things soon because I could do the crafting raid for three days and then she'd almost be back up to Drecche's level. Yeah, I think I'll make her a girl vampire. :)

Thanks again to Steam's sales, I was drawn into another fit of buying games. Though, fortunately this time around, I haven't gone overboard. There was this one game that caught my eye that I just had to have where it contained both an element I love and an element I generally try to stay away from:

Typing and zombies.

I'm big on typing (I have a strange love for it) and I generally don't play games involving zombies by myself. However, The Typing of the Dead: Overkill made me giggle at the concept and I couldn't help but go, "Imma buy that." The premise of the game is that you type out words or phrase in place of actually shooting the zombies mutants.

So far, from what I've played, I'm highly amused by it. It allows you to focus on typing as it leads you around to the areas you need to go. You don't need to worry about having your hand on your mouse and your fingers glued to WASD, it does that all for you. When you get into a situation where you need to "shoot" some mutants, words in bubbles will appear and you type them in as quickly as you can to get those mutants down. You have to make sure you pay attention to your surroundings or whenever the game pauses you a decent amount of time in a section; it's usually at those times where you need to tap the Tab key to pick up an item somewhere in the room.

If you buy one of their DLCs, which I believe are additional dictionaries that you can use, they include hilarious things you have to type in addition to the crazy that's already in the core of the game. As a quick note: should you buy this game, when you see a phrase using punctuation, you can fly by those. You don't have to worry about capitalizing or adding in that apostrophe in the word or phrase.

My only complaint about the game is the excessive use of swearing. Yes, I have a tendency to go off myself but for the most part I try to keep it to a minimum. The dialogue kind of reminds me of Jay from the Jay and Silent Bob movies, where the word "fuck" is used as a noun, pronoun, verb, and every other words (or am I thinking of one of my boyfriend's friends?). Occasionally they'll switch it up with another curse but it definitely has a quite a bit in there.

Steam went a little bit funky on me and stopped taking screenshots after a certain point. So all I can offer is a few of them from the first chapter:

Now, I'm attempting to convince myself that I don't want to buy The Secret World massive edition but I think I'm failing.

I'm also horrible with typing reviews but whatever.

I just bought Joshypoo's real money gift off Steam hehe. :) I got the Classic Adventure Pack: Meridian 4 for $9.99

Still Life, Still Life 2, Post Mortem, Siberia, Siberia 2, Scratches, and Nikopol. :)

He better like at least one of them. :P

I've played SL 1 and thought it was cool. That's the only one though. :)

Also on Monday we are exchanging EQ2 in game presents. I spent about 20 days worth of loyalty points on him. :)

Whoot, my first post! I hope reviews are okay to post here >_< I finished my finals and, to my disappointment, completed Far Cry 3. I wasn't sure whether or not to post this here because I don't know how it'll be received but I think it'd be good for discussion.

- I got this game for $5. Wish I got it for free.
- Ubisoft never disappoints when it comes to scenery, nature, and the animal animations and clippings.
- Gameplay mechanics are wonderful; very much like Assassin's Creed in FPS style. You've got the synchronizing in high places to map out locations, gain more ways to kill/stealth as you progress, do sidequests that don't have anything to do with the main mission, etc.


It's a long list of bad with a bit of profanity so prepare yourselves. If you found this helpful, please rate up on Steam so that it stays visible as it's one of the few honest reviews. Lots of Far Cry 3 stans but I expected it.

Good Morning!!! :D

Frostfell started in EQ2 last Thursday. :) It's their version of xmas with gobbolin gift givers and elf outfits, decorations, and all kinds of holiday stuff to craft. :) I think I've done the quest for the undecorated Frostfell tree on all my characters, but I might have missed one hehe. I've gotten some ornaments by doing this amazing crafting "raid" as I call it. :P

Every day you can go into a solo instance zone with 9 gobbolins asking you to craft things for their Frostfell. They supply all the materials and the special items are listed as level 70. I've actually never failed one even on my level 10 tradeskiller. The great thing about it is you can't normally craft things higher level than you, and I'm getting up to 2.5 times the amount of xp per item than I would crafting regular things! AND I'm using those xp boosters I mentioned for an even crazier amount of xp!

I've gained so many levels on some of my characters. Grandpop the Carpenter is who I'm making sure I do everyday. I didn't know about these crafting quests until Joshypoo told me though. In three completions (did it already today for GP), he's went from level 47 to 57. XD Yesterday my future Sage was level 1 crafting and I did the tutorial and got her to level 10 which is the minimum to do the holiday quests. She went from 10 to 27 in one trip. XD

It takes me about 45-50 minutes to complete the quest set. Joshypoo says he gets it done in 40 hehe. :)

The only problem I have with it is that I've done it like 7 times so far and it makes me sleepy now hehe. :P
