While originally today’s Stray Sheep was about achievements and stuff that some games make you do (hence the Taylor Swift reference), I kind of ended up with a post about games I’m playing right now and the fact that I can’t play everything at the same time, which sucks. So, I’ll take the first prompt and use it another time and instead will recycle this post to the last prompt, I guess.
I’m currently facing a bit of a dilemma. There’re too many great games out there, my steam library grew a bit more today, too, thanks to a few steam keys that Krikket was giving away on the Blaugust-Discord, my backlog is still…huge… and I also have too many games I want to play right now. These include Asheron’s Call (as you could guess my LttP-post), Warframe, Children of Morta (which I’m doing a review on right now), League of Legends (where I’m playing TFT right now but I also got into Top Lane again while still enjoying Support and Mid Lane!), and other games.
I’m really hyped about Asheron’s Call. It’s a bit nostalgic and reminds me of some of the first games I ever played for PC, like Might and Magic, The Elder Scrolls III (I think): Morrowind, and some other games where the graphics were quite great but nowhere near today’s standards. The music wasn’t that great either at the time – in fact, Asheron’s Call has no music at all! It was a simpler time back then, though I doubt that I’m qualified to talk about it, as I was born in ’99 and hence can’t remember “the good old times”. The reason I play it is mostly due to the other people I got to know there. It’s a lot of fun and although I get scared whenever a Tusker or Olthoi approaches me (I’m a scaredy-cat… I know…), I still enjoy my time there, tipping cows, fishing, grinding, and doing other fun stuff! It’s great and I haven’t even touched dungeons all that much, either! :) I’m quite excited about playing some more, but most of the other people are American and hence not in my timezone. Naithin, actually, is a Kiwi and hence also not in my timezone which makes it quite hard for me to play together with them as it’s either late in the night for me or way too early when they’re up and running. And while the game itself certainly is solo-able, it’s a bit more fun with friends…
In Warframe, it’s a bit different. I currently need to level my Limbo, who I’ve finally built. The only reason I wanted to play Limbo was because of him having a top-hat. And while that might be quite superficial… well, it is. There’s no denying that. I still enjoy playing Limbo and it’s a lot of fun to step through the Rift and help allies using it. Right now I’m grinding some missions for the Limbo-levels and I’m trying to get the Neptune-Junction to unlock the “The Second Dream“-quest. If you know of these things, you probably can tell that I’m not that far into Warframe, yet, but I’m getting there eventually! But here’s the catch: While I certainly want to play more Warframe, I just never get to it. I usually end up not having enough time to play because of the patching taking too long – or I’m just too busy with IRL-stuff and me wanting to get the next blog-post out. It’s annoying but at the same time, I want to play more of it.
Children of Morta… well, it’s great. The review’s coming out soon and I do not want to spoil anything or even repeat myself, so I won’t talk about that at all!
As for League of Legends: I really enjoy TFT (Team Fight Tactics), right now. It’s a lot of fun and I certainly enjoy it more than other Auto-Brawlers BUT lately the meta and the RNG aren’t in my favour, leading to me not enjoying it enough. Hence, I got back to playing more SR-games. 5v5, with friends and/or randoms. Practising top lane.
For those of you, that don’t know, I’m a support-main and recently got into playing Mid and Bot Lane again. So, naturally my Jungle and Top aren’t the best, right now, which is why I’m practising that again with some occasional Support-Games to not get too rusty on that side. I’ve played Darius for the first time last week and now have played a total of five games with him, and while he’s not as easy Garen, he’s not too hard either. It’s kind of fun to play someone as beefy as Darius while also dealing tons of damage and still having some weaknesses! Also, his /joke and /dance made me chuckle quite a lot, leading to me actually kind of liking him, even though I feel like a douchebag whenever I play him. But the thing here is that I kind of end up with tons of Support Mains in my friendslist and while I practice all roles, I’m not good at all of them and certainly don’t enjoy all of them. I don’t want to play with Randoms all the time but I also don’t want to get forced or force others into some roles they don’t play, leading to me not playing all that much League, lately. Also, I already got to Gold 4 this season, hence I don’t need to play Ranked any more.
So, yeah. There’s your quick little post about the fact that I can’t decide on what to play and always end up with too little time for certain games, the wrong timezones in other games or other stupid reasons that hinder me from playing. Tomorrow, I’ll try to finish that review on Children of Morta or I’ll finish another draft if the CoM-review takes too long. I hope you enjoyed this little post of mine about my little dilemma of not-knowing-what-to-play. Do you know these situations?
Anyways, have a nice day! :)
