Zero Lives - 2021/11/06
~ It's been such a long time ~
My most sincere apologies for not getting anything out last week. There simply wasn’t any content, be it articles or artwork. This week though…I started on with GameRant as a staff writer! After months of trying, I’ve finally been afforded the chance to prove my worth as a full-time games journalist. I am over the moon. Expect plenty of content moving forward.
What I’m Playing
At this point, I may as well just uninstall everything else. FFXIV is all-consuming. This week I finally finished my journey to completing all of the available side-quests in the world. I also finally figured out how end-game gear works, you know, weeks before it becomes useless and the next expansion drops.
Otherwise, I conquered my fears and beat the Resident Evil Remake. I had put this game off since its release way back in 2002 just because the mansion creeps me out that much. Well, with the help of a trainer and copious amounts of daylight, I braved the mansion and I must say, it was a wonderful experience. For a game that is nearly 20 years old, it holds up remarkably well.
What I’m Watching
Season 3 of Titans finally wrapped up. It was drug out so much and ultimately suffered for it. I really enjoyed the first two seasons, but aside from the introduction of memorable characters in this season, I can’t recommend it.
What We Do In The Shadows also wrapped up its season with quite the cliff-hanger. I’ll be honest, I didn’t expect them to mess with the formula too much, but now I’m genuinely curious as to what will happen.
