Nerd Girl Goals – February 2020

GAMING

Play to Satisfaction

For me, saying “Play to Satisfaction” gives me explicit permission to drop a game that’s not working for me, but also to grind away for nerd points if I’m really loving something. I’m trying to make it a policy for myself that I will always play to satisfaction – no more, no less.

Ten Games to Tackle in 2020

  • Finish up Far Cry Primal.
  • Start Borderlands.

#DatingSiMonth – Community Game Along

To tell the truth, my initial reaction to #DatingSiMonth is “What the hell am I going to play for this?”

As it turns out, I had more options than I realized. This, friends, is what happens when your gaming library gets out of control.

I’ve already played Danganronpa 2, and put over 100 hours in to Stardew Valley.

Then there were a few that seemed to be … miscategorized. (Of course, if Killer is Dead is actually a dating sim, feel free to correct me.)

I settled on Purrfect Date to be my primary Community Game-A-Long game this month, although I did also take a peek at free Dating Sims on Steam, as well as browsed through Itch.io for free dating sims, so it’s entirely likely I may hit up more than one.

Other Gamestuff

  • World of Warcraft: I’d really like to put some time in grinding out the rep for BfA flight. Also, there’s that bee mount I’ve been ignoring that I would like. And two plus worth of patches to check out. I guess I’m back (but I’m still on token-time, so we can see if I can also rack up some gold while I’m at it).
  • Utomik: For my birthday, I was gifted an entire year of Utomik subscription. Since I checked last, they’ve added Rise of Industry, Coffee Talk, and Ministry of Broadcast to their offerings. I would like to try out at least one of those this month.
  • XBox Gamepass for PC: Although I currently have my sub paused, it’s active through mid-month or so (and let’s be real, I’ll likely renew it because it’s only $5). Here there are also a handful of new-ish games that I’m interested in, namely Gris, A Plague Tale: Innocence, and Children of Morta. I’d like to dabble in at least one of these as well.

I think that’s probably more than is realistic, honestly, especially if I’m going to read another 3 or more books, finish up the deck building, and maybe even start trying my hand at making some custom Magic: The Gathering lands and tokens.

I’ve ordered myself an inexpensive set of acrylics, and bookmarked a couple of tutorials, and I absolutely intend to document the process. I have very little innate artistic talent, but a near insatiable drive to make stuff, so this should be interesting if not immediately successful.

One thought on “Nerd Girl Goals – February 2020

  1. After you’ve completed Amnesia: Memories, you should check out the sequels, Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs.

    Although I might use the term DatingSim here loosely…veeeeeery loosely 🙂
