Final Fantasy XIII Episodes 6-10

Image
Final Fantasy 13 continues this week (and likely for many, many weeks to come). Most of this week takes place on the crystallized Lake Bresha, but I do eventually leave there by the end of the week!

Guild Wars 1: Skill Review Project Mesmer & Eye of the North Finale

Image
This weekend saw a ton of videos drop on Saturday, as I split the Skill Review for the Mesmer up into sections (six, to be exact), so as to hopefully make it more approachable, as I felt the 3+ hour long videos I had made previously to be intimidatingly long.

I also beat Eye of the North on Elandra Yggdrasill, my female Dervish!

Final Fantasy XIII Episodes 1-5

Image
This week, I started playing Final Fantasy XIII for the channel. This is a game I've been wanting to play for a while now, so I'm glad to finally get started playing it!

Guild Wars 1: Elementalist Skill Review & Orozar Highstone's Quests

Image
The first episode this weekend was the very long Elementalist part of my Guild Wars 1 Skill Review Project. Part of what made this episode so much longer than the previous one was wanting to go into more game design detail, which I think makes the content better, at the cost of making it longer. I intend to respond to this outcome by breaking up the next part into multiple videos. They'll all still come out the same day (according to current plans, anyway), but it should be more palatable!

The second video continues Elandra's journey through the Eye of the North content.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Episodes 31-35

Image
I beat Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night this week! I completed the main story, anyway. I then spent an episode analyzing and reviewing the game, then concluded things by wrapping up a few known loose ends of exploration. I expect the game will come back on weekends, likely when I get access to new playable characters.

Guild Wars 1: Skill Review—Warrior & A Gate Too Far

Image
The first (extremely long) video is the first of my profession-specific Guild Wars 1 skill review videos. In it, as you'd expect given the name, I review the Warrior's skills.

In the second video, I play more Guild Wars 1, completing the A Gate Too Far mission, which almost completely closes out the third leg of the first part of the Eye of the North story.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Episodes 26-30

Image
I continue to wander around while lost. I ended up taking a bit of an interlude in the middle of the week to get ingredients to cook a bunch of new recipes. Once again, I end the week by looking up the barest hint of information on how to progress, and find a bunch of it as a result. I overall like this game, but it has a bad habit of hiding its late game progress a little too well.

Guild Wars 1 Skill Review Project Intro & More Eye of the North

Image
The first video this weekend is the start of what will (according to current plans) ultimately be a twelve part series analyzing the skills in Guild Wars 1. I'm looking forward to it, as I've been wanting to do this for a while!

The second episode continues my journey through Eye of the North on my female Dervish.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Episodes 21-25

Image
I spent much of this week searching for progress. I eventually gave up and took a peek at a barebones walkthrough that pointed me in the direction of the Aegis Plate. I do find and collect a lot of stuff during my search, though!
