Phasmophobia Early Access.

I don’t generally like playing spooky scary, horror games. Mainly due to me having an overactive imagination and thinking that there’s some shadows in every corner of my room when I try to sleep, or end up having nightmares because the imagery is still fresh in my mind. I do tend to like watching other people play horror games to see their reactions and I wonder to myself if I would react that way. I most certainly do and will react the same way if they get all freaked out. Cause I freak out a lot. Lately because I’ve been playing Phasmophobia the past week or two.

I bought it and had to wait a bit to play because I wanted to be like a fresh run on my first playthrough with a scheduled group play with Bennyfits, Marc (Kaoiji) and Team Louie. This was set up October 9th 2020. Throughout the first gaming session I just keep freaking out over nothing. Well most of the time I freaked out of seeing shadows in the dark and the ghosts popping up randomly in front of me and then hearing breathing in my ear. Then getting hunted by the ghost and getting killed because I panicked.

After a several more games played I kind of gotten used to it, but I was still freaking out cause while I was still expecting things to breathe in my ear and the ghost killing me, I still get freaked out. I keep telling myself I should stop playing this game but I keep going back to it.

I will say this that the game is still buggy. You have to guess what type of ghost is haunting a particular place. The map is randomly generated and the difficulty of the mission is randomized from Amateur, Intermediate and Professional. There really is no change in difficulty of how to play just how quickly the ghost will start hunting you and your party members. Amateur gives you 5 minutes to get your gear ready to find out what the ghost is before it hunts and kills you. Intermediate gives you 2 minutes and Professional doesn’t give you any time to set up. The difficulty also changes what you get for insurance if you die.

Insurance is given to you when you die IF you contributed gear to the mission. Amateur will allow you to get back 50% of the cost of the gear you put in, Intermediate 25% and Professional you get no insurance. So if you choose to play a professional map choose wisely what you want to contribute to your mission and play carefully, otherwise you will lose everything and not get any money in return.

The bugs so far are not being able to see ghost orbs in when placing video cameras to scout if there is any evidence of it. Sometimes the ghost won’t write in the ghost book, and sometimes they won’t give you cold temperatures. Most of which are require to get a definite idea of what type of ghost it was. When one of these evidence bugs out you left guessing what type of ghost it is. Most of these bugs have been fixed in the third update patch at the time of writing this.

Phasmophobia is a fun ghost hunting game still in early access still with bugs and still has potential to grow. Great game to play with friends that love the idea of hunting ghost and still be scared.

Long time no see.

So it’s been probably two years since the last update and I’ve just don’t know what to write about. Usually I’m reviewing makeup and games that I’ve played during that time, but I felt I’ve neglected this blog/site for so long that there wasn’t anything to update about. Since 2014 I started streaming on Twitch, and it’s what I’ve been concentrating on mostly since. I ever so often thought back to my webcomic and how I want to restart it, but after reading a review from some “critique” website that really doesn’t critique, I just felt a little deflated in wanting to create anything. I know there are people that aren’t going to like what I do or the style I draw in, but sometimes I just wanna lay in bed and be non existent for a bit.

I have been going through mood swings and feelings of no one not really caring if I’m around or not the past few years and it’s not a really good feeling. I don’t want to think it’s depression, or worse, but it does feel like it. The pandemic isn’t helping the situation either.

I’m doing ok. To those that still come and visit the site and such. I’m trying to get back into making art prints and want to create stickers to sell and even some fan resin things. It’s going to take a bit because I have to put aside money to get the require tools to do so. I’ll start posting again. Regularly if I need to. If it keeps me from laying in bed all day.

I’ll try to start posting more again. Don’t even think people check out blogs anymore.

Anyway, if you’re here don’t forget to follow me on Twitch.

BlizzCon 2014

It was announced that BlizzCon 2014 will be November 7-8. This means I can’t do FANDom Con in Destin. Sad but well BlizzCon has always been priority to other conventions considering it’s the one time of the year that we (my husband and I) can be on “vacation.” It’s alright though, I love BlizzCon and nothing would stop me from going again. Well not getting tickets would mean we can’t go. They are doing a different ticketing system this year. It’s not going to be done through the Blizzard Store this year for some reason, they’re using Eventbrite. Which I am very worried about because can the Eventbrite server handle the many pings it’s going to receive the moment those tickets go on sale? Will it be a catastrophe like 2008 ticket sales where the server goes down every 2 minutes trying to process the amount of requests for tickets orders it’s going to get? I’m not sure how Eventbrite’s server is going to handle these ticket sales and there is no queue time on Eventbrite, I don’t think. So if you don’t get it withing the first 30 seconds the moment the tickets go on sale you don’t get it at all.

This is going to be a bit nerve wrecking. We shall see when the time comes for ticket sales. So it’s not written in stone yet that we will be going to BlizzCon. Though I have made preparations on hotel rooms just in case.

It’s been a long time since I blogged…

Yes I have slacked off in blogging the last two months… maybe more, but things seem to have slowed down for this time of the year. July had gone to my sister’s wedding which was a beautiful wedding up until the end of it where some drama had occurred. A month had past since that drama and when I went to talk to my parents again it seems like they didn’t want to let it go. Everyone seems to just say “what’s done is done you can’t changed what happened, just move on and deal with it,” but that is not the case with my mother. All I wanted to do was give my daughter her grandparents time to video chat and mother just wants to spew on about the drama that happened a month ago. And she use to say that I never let shit go. >.>

Anyway, September 25th Cataclysm came to an end when Mist of Pandaria was released and I busted my ass for 15 hours trying to catch up to the server 1st priest. Though I know I was about 4 hours behind the first priest but when I hit 88 and saw he was 89 I was like crap. I could make it by a hairline but I know I won’t and I feel like I did all this staying up for launch hour to try to make it to server first for nothing. I only knew of two people that rooted for me to make it and at least supported me in trying. Maybe three, but one of my longest friends said I wouldn’t, and that I couldn’t because I wasn’t known to be “hardcore.” 

Seriously if I can sit down at the computer for 4 hours + raiding and make it to raids I can do the grind. I’m not a lightweight when it comes to playing games. The only time when I can’t do it is when I start getting massive pains in my stomach (gallstone attacks) or major headaches that don’t go away after an hour after taking aspirin/tylenol. The thing that made me get behind on reaching server first 90 priest was cause the first part of the quests to Pandaria, where you fly and bomb the ships. After bombing the horde on the island, you have to bomb the ships. Oh the lack of visual on that part. You can’t zoom out so you can barely see the ship and what you are shooting at. You can’t group up with people to get that quest objective, if you do group you aren’t credited for it which is a bit an annoyance since it took me 30 mins to try to sink the ship. Oh and all you see is the insides of everyone else’s polygons. There was a spare moment every so often that you will see the ship and the barrel you have to shoot but when you do  you can’t hit the barrel cause someone else already hit it. That was such an annoying flaw. I’m sure there was no qualms or quarrels about this problem during beta because it went smoothly in beta. You don’t have hundreds of people trying for it at once. 

I did make it to 90 in the first couple of days so it was fine for me. So I spent a lot of time trying to get loremaster of pandaria achievement and then working on getting cooking done and all that jazz. I have to say I do like the MoP expansion, although most of my friends aren’t playing as much anymore cause they got disenchanted with Cataclysm. 

So after two weeks of that Resident Evil 6 was released and my husband got it for me and I’m like “ZOMG CHRIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSSS.” First campaign I played was Chris’. =p So with 5 chapters in each campaign about 1 hour each to play or more cause I was looking for emblems, I was able to finish all campaigns in about a week, so then I played it a second time around, need to do Ada’s campaign again but not too sure if I want to do it on Normal. 

I do like RE6. The controls though could’ve used some more polished and work, in my opinion, and after finishing Ada’s campaign the first time around there seems to be hints that they will make a 7th Resident Evil game. Just hints, though I am not positive on that. If so though I would like to see something with Claire in it. /shrug.

I have some reviews to post up but that will be in a different entry.
