Gaming Wishlist

Listening now…

 

So I have been slacking on the blog this week, mainly because I had my final test for my class [got an 87!] I will be finishing out the class with at least an A. Woohoo!

 

On another thankful note, I just reached 150 followers on here!

Thank you to anyone that reads what I write and follows along 🙂

 

I recently did a post about Games on the watch: Tacoma– that game is not out yet, but I wanted to write about a few games that are out and that I have been lusting over.

 

Here is my current Gaming Wishlist. When I buy these games and play them I will be sure to write about them and share my thoughts on them.

 

If you are emerged in the gaming world at all right now, you have probably seen the abundance of survival and exploration type games out right now. Personally, I have played The Long dark– and loved it. That pretty much set off my interest in finding more survival type games. If you would like to hear my experience on that game, let me know!

 

With this post- maybe I can break down a few for you that I have researched myself and watched people play online that I definitely think will be worth the buy. 

Firewatch:

 

I have been wanting this game since I watched the first Let’s play on youtube. Anyone else watch Let’s plays of games they want?

Watch the trailer here:

 

 

Firewatch is a mystery set in the Wyoming wilderness, where your only emotional lifeline is the person on the other end of a handheld radio.

The year is 1989.

You are a man named Henry who has retreated from your messy life to work as a fire lookout in the Wyoming wilderness. Perched atop a mountain, it’s your job to find smoke and keep the wilderness safe.

An especially hot, dry summer has everyone on edge. Your supervisor, a woman named Delilah, is available to you at all times over a small, handheld radio—and is your only contact with the world you’ve left behind.

But when something strange draws you out of your lookout tower and into the world below, you’ll explore a wild and unknown environment, facing questions and making interpersonal choices that can build or destroy the only meaningful relationship you have.

 

Besides the intriguing and suspenseful storyline, the graphics are really realistic and beautiful to look at.

 

Along with the wilderness exploration type gameplay I find intriguing, it has some of the point, click, and exploring objects you can pick up along the way aspect that I loved so much about Gone Home and Life is Strangewhich I wrote about here. 

 

Stranded Deep:

 

 

This game has a Cast Away vibe to it. You get stranded on an island as a plane crash survivor somewhere off the Pacific Ocean.

It’s up to you from there.

Watch the trailer here:

 

I have to admit- I am a little scared of the sharks in this game. They seem to come out quite a bit from what I have seen.

 

Just like Firewatch, the graphics make the game very realistic, adding to the feeling and imagination of actually being there.

 

 

The game is so much like Cast Away, that  apparently Wilson even found his way there…

 

Homesick:

 

 

You may know if you follow my blog that I love exploring and photographing abandoned places. I have a continuing series about it on here. 

So when I found this game Homesick online, a game where the idea is to walk around an abandoned house and find out what happened [ also pretty similar to Gone Home- except, this place is actually abandoned. ] Needless to say- I was so excited.

 

Watch the trailer here:

 

Taken from Steam’s website:

Explore an abandoned building, encountering puzzles and clues as the story unfolds. You seem to have been there so long that direct sunlight is blindingly bright, at home in the serene but foreboding atmosphere. When you sleep, you are plagued by nightmares, frantically running down hallways chased by darkness, an axe in hand.

Find the remnants of the building’s inhabitants to discover who you are, what happened, and what you need to do, as you try to escape in both your nightmares and the waking world.

Homesick is a puzzle exploration mystery game with a first person perspective, in a richly detailed and atmospheric 3D environment.

 

 

 

 

This game has puzzles involved as well, which I think I would enjoy. I recently got on a Nancy Drew kick where I was playing through most of the games offered on steam, so I love a good puzzle game.

I can’t wait to delve into these games and share my experiences….!

 

Which game would you like to play?

Spring and Summer wish list

Listening now…

 

 

 

Awhile back, on a dreary winter day, I was dreaming of spring….

And now it seems it is here to stay, it’s almost May, and I could not be happier.

I was an August baby, so I think my heart loves and belongs in the sunshine.

I wanted to update the Spring wish list I made a little while back. As I go, I will check items off and make an updated post when I acquire some of these items and will post photos of a haul. After all, I love me some hauls.

I have already started my Spring shopping and purchased a few items like striped jeans, cardigans, and boy short bikini bottoms-which I have been wanting for a few summers!

But I keep thinking of or seeing more and more things I have to have…

 

Here is my updated Spring and Summer wishlist:

 

   Shoes of all kinds…

 

I am a fan of sneakers right now. Been wearing my low top white converse a lot, my Vans, and Keds.

Hence, I would like some more…

 

 

Sneakers:

 

 

 

Espadrilles:

 

 

 

TUKS:

 

I feel like you either love or hate these shoes. I love them and have been lusting over them for awhile now. I have been loving the 90’s style lately and these platform shoes are no exception. Yeah….I need them…

 

 

 

 Matching sets:

 

Yes please.

 

Chokers:

 

I couldn’t be more happy that these came back into style. I have enjoyed layering necklaces with a choker lately.

I love the versatility of them!

 

 

 

 


T Shirt Dress:

 

 

 

Tropical prints:

 

 

 

 

 

Summer floats:

 

….But do you see these!

I spend almost every day at the lake during the summer. It’s my second home, I bring my pup, throw her ball so she can swim, and bask in the sun while reading a book and listening to whatever lake playlist I have at the time.

 

 

 

I spent last summer lusting after Taylor’s magical swan float. Not again this year, guys!

 

 

 

 What are you lusting after this spring and summer?
