Vry Plays: Fallout New Vegas #3 – Goodspring Part 2

After consulting the sage advice of Twitter, who promptly told Vry to indulge his worst impulses and be a BAAAAD GUY, Vry begins with teaming up with the local gang. Maybe they’ll paint a graffiti or say some swears. YEAH. BAD BOYZ. WITH A Z.

Stormblood Story Summary Now Available!

I am happy to announce that the Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood story summary is now complete and available here on the Land of Odd.  Just like with the other story summaries, it’s broken up into each patch starting with 4.0 and going through 4.5 with links at the top of the page so you can skip right to the section you want to read.

I just want to thank you all for being patient with me while I completed this. I know some people wanted it ready before Shadowbringers launched and I knew I didn’t have the time to write all this up and grind to have a high enough iLevel to do the Grimlyt Dark dungeon before the expansion released, so again I appreciate all of your patience with me.  I once again am going to try to not fall behind as much in Shadowbringers.  Cross your fingers!

You can find the story summary HERE or in the menu at the top of the site.

Vry Plays: Fallout New Vegas #2 – Goodspring Part 1

Vrykerion starts his journey by doing a tutorial, meeting a zombie dog, and comes face to face with his first true moral quandary.

Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood Summary Update

Do you know how insanely flattering it is that not a week has gone by in the past few MONTHS that someone doesn’t chime in via some form of interaction to ask if I plan to do a Stormblood story summary?

I just want all of you who have asked that I have read all of your comments and messages and whatnot and though I haven’t replied to all of them – they always put a smile on my face.

That said, I wanted to update everyone on whats going on with the Stormblood Story Summary here at the Land of Odd.  Namely, that YES there will be one.  I’ve already got a good chunk of it outlined and a few sections already have a detailed write up.

But – just like with the Realm Reborn and Heavensward stories – I only play through all the patch content stories after the next expansion is released.  I do this for two major reasons:  1) It keeps it all fresh in my mind going into the new expansion. and 2) They always update the Main Scenario quests to give out really solid gear that will get you through all the dungeon and trial bits that you need to do for the story and starts the expansion with a solid set of gear.  Not to mention I collect the appearances for glamours and what not.

(In case the question crosses your mind as to WHY my gear is so out of date…  well, I’m quite casual.  I spend a lot of time in game leveling my other jobs and crafting.  Decorating my cottage. And I play other games as well.  FFXIV isn’t my sole MMO let alone my only game. *shrug*)

So rest assured that the story summary IS coming, but you might have to wait a bit into Shadowbringers to see it.  Don’t worry, I’m not diving into Shadowbringers new stuff until all the Stormblood business is behind us.

To quote Yoshi-P, please look forward to it. 😀

Also, I’ve been trying to get back into streaming and youtube now that I’ve got new editing software to work with.  I might try and stream going through the Main Scenario once I get going through it.  Would anybody interested in any of that? We could chat and I could share my thoughts as we were going through and I was making notes and whatnot.  Just a thought.

Vry Plays: Fallout New Vegas #1 – Introduction

Vry tries for the umpteenth time to get past the tutorial in the fabled “Good Fallout game”.

This is a Mostly Blind Playthrough. Previous attempts to play the game over the years all pretty much ended in Primm. It is utilizing a random starting build provided by a randomizer.

Build’em Up then Blow’em Up! (Vry Plays Planet Coaster & Borderlands 2)

Original Stream: 4/4/2019

Vry tries to run a theme park (and fails) then tries to save the world (and fails).

The Borderlands 2 play through got cut short due to BSOD, but I was able to replay back to that point so next time we can start back up.
