I never thought I’d use the word “Pimp” in a title of a blog post, but there you are. I love this team and what they do, so I’m pimpin’ their name right now… (Oh… that was awful… I’ll see myself out.) The Fun Pimps is the development team behind the zombie survival crafting game, 7 Days to Die. If you look at my archives, you’ll see that I first reviewed 7D2D back in July of 2014… and this is a game that the Posse still enthusiastically plays today (we were playing it last weekend, in fact)! I have over 700 hours put into this game, which makes it my most-played Steam game ever. Even though it’s still wading through various stages of alpha, we are awaiting the next big patch drop eagerly. Jeeps and gyro-copters!! Woot! So who are the Fun Pimps? Based on their website: The Fun Pimps A.K.A. TFP are a small dedicated group of highly experienced Game and Software developers with a passion to make games that both our … [Read more...] about Blaugust Dev Appreciation Week: The Fun Pimps
On top of working on my Fashion Leader achievement this past weekend, I’ve been diligently progressing other things in FFXIV. First, as you can see above, I reached the Bloodsworn rank with the Ananta beast tribe, which granted me the True Griffon Mount. I got teased about “painting” the griffon in our friend-group Discord since we’ve been playing a bit of 7D2D this weekend, too… wherein I love to paint everything, still. The joke’s on them! 😉 Thanks to working on Beast Tribe quests consistently since Patch 4.2, I leveled my Paladin from 64 to 70! I just dinged 70 Paladin this weekend, and was finally able to equip the mish-mash of tank gear I’d been hanging on to from random end-game drops. Amoon also helped run some Deltascape 4 for token drops so I could upgrade to a decent Paladin weapon! I thought the Lost Alligan sword and board looked pretty neat, and I love the Rabidnasty chest for tanks. I also finally sat down to grind out the … [Read more...] about FFXIV: Two New Level 70s and a White Griffon Mount
One of my goals for 2018 was to reach a milestone of having played (over) 50% of the games in my Steam backlog. This month, I’ve been nudging closer by prompting myself to try a new Steam game each week. Last night, for the first time in years, the calculator reported that I’ve played 50% of the Steam games in my library! Given that this number is 245 games, this is no little thing! My other goal this year was to not buy a new game if I wasn’t interested in playing it almost immediately. I’ve pretty much stuck to this. This week, for example, I obtained my Project: Gorgon Steam key from the Kickstarter, so I made sure to install the game and poke around in it a little bit last night. Once I have more time to sit down with it, I’ll be sure to post about my new experiences in P:G. Aside from this, I finished Back to the Future: Episode 3 last week. I had an itch to try a city builder this week (mostly because I’m interested in Surviving … [Read more...] about Steam Challenge: 50% Milestone Goal Met!
