Tips N Tricks Tuesday #20 - Steal Your Way to a Trophy! (ACII)

The series in which I share a gaming tip. Some are ones I realized, some are ones I had to look up. Today's tip is one that I realized in my 3rd (or so) playthrough...

***Steal Your Way to a Trophy!***
Assassin's Creed II

There's an achievement in Assassin's Creed II called Kleptomaniac. You have to steal 1000 florins to get it. This isn't hard, really, but is a bit time-consuming, and can be very annoying when soldiers try to kill you for it. I recently stumbled across a way to avoid the soldiers, at least. This probably isn't new information to most fans of this game, but maybe it will help some newbies. ▼

Movie Monday #44 - Shootin' Gourds (Bastion)

The blog series where I show you a gaming vid...it's almost always me playing...sometimes not very well. Today's is not awful, but could be better. :)

***Shootin' Gourds***

In the platforming-ish action RPG-ish Bastion, there are challenge levels. These offer prizes for getting a certain score. Below, I've linked one of these challenges, and me getting a score that netted me the top prize. I'm not normally that...um...talented. LOL ▼

Tips N Tricks Tuesday #19 - Photo Challenge: The Carnival is Back! (FFXV DLC)

The series in which I share a gaming tip or trick. It may or may not help you be a better gamer...

***Photo Challenge***
Moogle Chocobo Carnival DLC

The Moogle Chocobo Carnival is back in FFXV and that means you have another shot at taking on the photo challenge. For this week's tip, I'm not only helping you out with this, I'm giving you the locations. For this, I broke the whole thing down into 6 different videos. 

SPOILER ALERT! If you don't want the locations, check out this tip I posted the first time this DLC came out: Photo Challenge Tip (FFXV Carnival DLC). It only gives away one location, just enough to show you how to find the rest. 

If you want the easy answer, continue on. ▼

Movie Monday #43 - Taking on a Behemoth (FFXV)

The weekly series in which I share a gaming vid, usually provided by yours truly. Today is just such a video. Enjoy! ♥

***Taking on a Behemoth***
Final Fantasy XV
Episode Prompto DLC

There comes a time in every gamer girl's life when she wants all the trophies. To that end, I went after one I actually figured I couldn't get: the Emperor Deposed trophy/achievement in the Episode Prompto DLC from FFXV.

You can't even guess how shocked I was when I managed it, on normal difficulty, on my very first try. I'm still in shock. It's not a pretty battle, and I definitely couldn't have done it without Aranea's help; she's level 50-something while Prompto is stuck at 30-something...the boss is 99.

Check it out.... ▼

It's Monday and that means a new gaming vid from yours truly! Today's video is of the newly released Regalia Type-D in Final Fantasy XV. This thing is so much FUN to drive. But I suck at it. As usual. Enjoy! ▼

Movie Monday (#39) - Funny Moments in FFXV

A video of me gaming for you to enjoy. :D

***Funny Moments in FFXV***
Final Fantasy XV

Every game has glitches. Some companies are KNOWN for them—I'm looking at YOU, Bethesda—others not so much. Bottom line, they all have them. This week's video focuses on a few from FFXV. I've included some clips that aren't glitches, just amusing. Enjoy! ♥

New Loot! (#44) - "A Few More PS4 Exclusives" Edition

Yet another post about my recent gaming acquisitions...

***A Few More PS4 Exclusives***
New Loot!

It's a short list this time, but that's really no excuse when each game is $20+. Anyway, here's what I grabbed...
  • The Last Guardian - this was actually a purchase for hubby, as he'd expressed interest in this puzzling, platformer-ish style game. I think the huge, rodent-like creature is cute and I want to know more. lol
  • Sword Art Online: Lost Song - I already had Re: Hollow Fragment, and I love the anime series, so getting this was only a matter of waiting for the price to drop a little. It did, so now it's mine, all mine.
  • Exist Archive: The other side of the sky - I stumbled across this on Amazon and it looked and sounded like a game I'd enjoy. Otherwise, I'd never even heard of it. 
That's it for this round. I'll probably have another post about more new loot...later. :D

Until next time...

Movie Monday (#38) - Scoring BIG (Mobius FF)

The series in which I share a gaming video. Duh.

***Scoring BIG***
Mobius Final Fantasy

After over a year of playing Mobius on Android, and a few weeks of playing it on PC, I finally managed a battle score that floored me. 22.6 million. I'm still a little in shock and I'm quite sure I'll never manage this score again. Especially since it was accomplished during one of the limited time battles featured in the FFVII Remake Collaboration Event. 

Want to see how I did it? Watch the video embedded below. ▼

Screenshot Saturday (#40) - Mobius FF

The series in which I share still shots from whatever video game happens to tickle my fancy at the moment. This week's shots are from the free-to-play PC edition of Mobius Final Fantasy, specifically the recent FFVII Remake Collaboration Event.

Tips N Tricks Tuesday (#18) - Photo Challenge Tip (FFXV Carnival DLC)

The series in which I share a gaming tip or trick. Some are ones I discovered on my own, while some are ones I had to look up online. The following is one I happened to stumble across myself. 

***Photo Challenge Tip***
Final Fantasy XV
Moogle Chocobo Carnival DLC

This post is by no means a cheat for the photo challenge in FFXV's Moogle Chocobo Carnival DLC. I only give away one image in particular. I've thought about finding them all for anyone who wants to "cheat" their way through this aspect, but there are already a bunch of videos doing just that. 

Honestly, I was getting so frustrated that I was tempted to find someone who'd posted all the locations. Until I happened to realize something...

Movie Monday (#37) - Death to All Sugrivas...Wendigos AND Neelas! (FFXIII LR)

It's time for another gaming vid featuring the gaming talent of yours truly! Or not. Sometimes I suck. ;) 

***Death to All Sugrivas!***
...Wendigos AND Neelas!
Last One Battle
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

I've played a lot of Lightning Returns and in doing so, defeated a lot of the 'Last Ones' the game boasts. It's fun, sometimes super easy, but there are times where it's a little more work than I anticipated. Though by no means a difficult battle (especially since I play on easy mode), the following battle was a little harder than I expected going into it. ▼

Screenshot Saturday (#39) - NieR: Automata DEMO 120161128

It's time for another round of random screenshots from a randomly selected game. Except I rarely do anything randomly...

***NieR: Automata***
DEMO 120161128

The NieR: Automata demo was one I wasn't sure I'd enjoy, but I was pleased to discover it was a lot of fun. You can find my review of it HERE. And now enjoy these rather stunning images from the demo! ♥

2B. Getting ready to stomp some machines into the ground.

What You Missed Wednesday (12/21/2016-1/31/2017)

The blog series of posts in which I list the posts this blog has seen over a specific period of time, usually seven days worth. Today, it's a few more...

***What You Missed Wednesday***

It's been a while since I listed out this blog's posts for a certain period of time. I should do it at least once a month, just to catch up new readers and let long-time readers know of any posts they might have missed. Sorry I've been so lax in this department.

Until next time...

Screenshot Saturday (#38) - FFXV Carnival

The weekly series in which I share screenshots of games, usually one I'm currently playing...

Final Fantasy XV DLC

The first "playable" DLC for FFXV was released recently so I thought I'd share a few images from that, the Moogle Chocobo Carnival. Enjoy! ♥

—DLC Review— Moogle Chocobo Carnival (FFXV)

When I pre-ordered FFXV, I eventually went and bought the Season Pass. I knew I wanted it, but finances forced me to wait a bit. Not a big deal, since the first DLC wasn't planned for a month or two anyway.

That said, the first of the playable DLCs has been released, and though it's not much as far as "playable" goes, it's still something to do if you've already beaten the game.

**Moogle Chocobo Carnival**

Movie Monday (#36) - Death to All Niblets! (FFXIII LR)

The series in which I show you how to game...like me...which isn't great...

***Death to All Niblets!***
'Last One' Battle
Final Fantasy XIII: Lightning Returns
Movie Monday

I've played FFXIII: Lightning Returns for several dozen hours. I'm still not great at it. But sometimes I come up against an enemy, one who's supposed to be "powerful," and I slaughter them. Makes me feel good...for about three seconds.

This particular 'Last One' battle also finishes up a 3-star side quest that originates in Yusnaan. Check it out...▼

Screenshot Saturday (#37) - ABZÛ

The series in which I share screenshots from various games I play. Just like the title says.

Screenshot Saturday

I stumbled across ABZÛ during Steam's most recent sale. I was enchanted with the screenshots and videos on the Steam store page, so I bought it. I didn't regret the purchase. It's a beautiful game, and I've only played for a few minutes at this point.

Learning the controls

New Loot! (#43) - "I Already Have That Game" Edition

The blog series in which I share the latest additions to my gaming library...

**I Already Have That Game**
New Loot!

Yeah, I have a habit of buying games more than once. This time I bought Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection, which I already had for 360. I had planned to get the AC games for PC, but honestly, Ubisoft doesn't seem to give a crap about PC, at least as far as the AC games go—poorly mapped controllers, no achievements, other issues that I don't know about personally since I only have one AC game for PC and I haven't even played it yet (Rogue, in case you're wondering). So I was pretty thrilled to discover the PS4 release of ACII, AC Brotherhood, and AC Revelations. They also included two short films, one that takes place before ACII (Lineage) and one that takes place after Revelations (Embers). All in all, a great addition to my library.

*All things AC belong to Ubisoft, who in no way endorses this blog. You may now go about your day. Thank you. 

Until next time...
