Expanding my blog a little bit… (plus a little video tour!)

So, not that long ago I moved into a new apartment and got myself a little garden. I’ve been wanting one since last year so when we found this apartment, I knew I needed it. I realized around the beginning of last summer that I wanted something to take care of and water every day before work so I got some plants. Found out that I love it more than I thought and got a lot more. I wrote about it in my New Years post as well.

Lately I got the thought that I wanted to share my love for plants and what better place than my blog? So, I’m thinking of mixing my game part of the blog with a new part for all my plants and stuff like that.

Another things I’ve found funny lately is to talk in videos. Yeah I know, it’s so last year, or well maybe several but I’ve always had this irrational fear of speaking to people. So expect there to be way more videos on this blog with talking, showing and all kinds of funny stuff.

So, at first the garden looked like this:

I thought it would take me ages to tame this unruly garden. Especially when I wanted and still want to change everything about it! Things were overgrown since at least before the winter last year and just a mess. I wanted to remove everything and change it up.

So far so good, it took way less time than I thought it would and I am really satisfied with the results. I can’t wait for next summer when I can start planning to get a little pergola as well. For now, I just need some new plants for the empty side. I got a dwarf lilac and a mock orange, they smell so good!

So far, only the left side is growing and well, it’s growing like crazy!

My Time at Portia, can you get out of Early Access soon?

So, I have written about this game a few times and finally I got to taste this sweet sweet game. It i all I ever wished for and more. Think Harvest Moon and Stardew Valley but crank it up to 1000. It’s cute, 3d, filled with fun stuff and more. If you haven’t checked it out already, do it!

I found a few new games that I wanna play from E3.

So, I watched E3 for the first time ever (I know, I’m way late). Well, mainy it has been because I’ve never wanted any spoilers nor felt the need for it. I’ve found the games I wanna play anyhow by other means.

But this year I thought, hey, let’s see what all this E3 fuss is about. And I didn’t regret it. Well maybe it is because of all the games I got so excited for. There were surprisingly many titles that I’ll be waiting for, and a few titles that I never thought would come.

For example, Elder Scrolls 6 is a huge drop for me, and I bet it is for a lot of people.
I don’t particularly liked Skyrim but I love both Oblivion and Morrowind so I can’t wait for this game.

Another game that I have been waiting for is Cyberpunk 2077. Saw the first trailer back in 2013 I think. With romance, male/female gender, customization and more, what can go wrong?

Also another game on my waiting list is We Happy Few, a trailer I saw some time ago that piqued my interest. It’s already in Early Access on Steam but I’ll wait.

A game I recently got my eyes on is Fallout 76. At first I thought I’d be really bummed that the game wouldn’t be a singleplayer game like the rest but I’m not. I’m sitting here thinking “Hey, an online fallout game? I want that!” So I’m super excited.

Something I got super excited about as well is the new Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey. While I haven’t really played any of the others, I couldn’t help to be excited about this one. You can play as a girl, you have romances and all that. Feel free to tell me if any of the other Assassin’s Creed has something like that as well. I hope it drops for PC.

Another big title I swore to myself that I wouldn’t play is Kingdom Hearts 3, but when I saw what I believe is Kairi in white hair, I just have to despite it all!

Unravel 2 is another game I’ve not played the first of but both looks so much fun.

The other games that I found really interesting on E3 were:

Twin Mirror This game did not get the attention it seem to need at E3 imo. It reminds me a bit of Deadly Premonition for some reason…

Starfield It’s not much but still, a new huge game from Bethesda, I’m hyping.

Sea of Solitude

The Quiet Man

Skull and Bones

Control

Marvel’s Spiderman

Trials: Rising

Also, an honorary mention to Trover Saves the Universe but I’ll prolly never play it as it seems to be PS4 and PSVR only. Also it’s from the makers of Rick and Morty.

Cupid – A free to play visual novel, and a good one at that.

A bit NSFW!

So, I just played through Cupid and felt that I should share it.

I’ve played quite a few visual novels and this one is surely up there with the better ones. The game is a bit all over the place in the timelines, but the end really pulled me in and made my heart race. It was actually rather creepy, it surely took some turns that I didn’t see coming.

I didn’t think it would be a horror visual novel but I was rather intrigued that it is. The feeling throughout the game made me want to know more.

It has some adult content, rather poetically written with nice art to accompany it. I really liked the art, the characters and the music/sounds. I’d absolutely replay it to pick the choices I didn’t the first time.
