Underneath my yellow skin

It’s time to say goodbye (provisionally) to MHW

I’m still hacking up a lung, which is really unpleasant. I’ve been wanting to fight Tempered Kirin, but my energy is too low to take on that challenge. One of the best and worst things about Monster Hunter: World is that doing each new quest solo takes a lot of energy. They aren’t necessarily hard… Continue Reading

Walking away from the First Flame

I heard The Pina Colada Song on my way home from Cubs today, and it put me in the mood…to play more Dark Souls! It’s my Dark Souls fight song, and I’ve heard it twice in the past week. That must mean something, right? I recently learned that there is a second ending to Dark… Continue Reading

Letting the First Flame die out naturally

First of all, health report. Feeling a bit shittier than yesterday, but still better over all. Got a bit of snow yesterday, which makes me happy. Got my instapot (yes, that’s what I’m calling it from now on because it amuses me) and bought the ingredients for vegan mashed potatoes and gravy. Will mess about… Continue Reading

Winding down Monster Hunter: World, oh, and yeah, Thanksgiving

It’s a flagrant whitewashing, and it… Continue Reading

Monster Hunter: World limping to the end

After several days off from playing Monster Hunter: World, I jumped back in, partly to play the Kulve Taroth Siege. I’ll get to that in a minute. I also wanted to do the weekly Limited Bounties because doing them all nets a Gold Wyverian Print when it’s all said and done. Basically, it gives you… Continue Reading

Monster Hunter: World curtains closed–then opened again

One final boss. One last Elder Dragon to take on before closing the books. This was it. This was what I had been training for all my life. ::cue Rocky training montage:: Of course, by training, I mean mostly grinding out the other Elder Dragons and getting my gems, yo! I’m all about the gems.… Continue Reading

Monster Hunter: World and the beginning of the end

This week in Monster Hunter: World had me cleaning up house. It’s funny because it mimics how I work in the real world. I ‘grind’ before doing the real work (mostly by thinking hard about things) so it seems as if I make my decisions suddenly and rashly, but in reality, I’ve given it a… Continue Reading
