All our Skyrim chat the other day had me reminiscing and I treated myself to a couple more strategy guides. I love looking back at my fave games and these are two that are special to me ❤

I've had a couple of months off, but hoping to throw myself into Dishonored 2 next!


PathfinderNicole I bought myself the collector‘s edition strategy guide for Mass Effect: Andromeda when it was released and I love it! I‘ve been replaying Horizon Zero Dawn in preparation for the sequel since it‘s coming out on Friday 10mo
RaeLovesToRead @PathfinderNicole Nice!!!! It's always best to get them when they come out because they can be hard to get hold of. I'm wanting to play the Mass Effect trilogy soon 💕 (it's next on the list after Dishonored 2). Really want the next Horizon, but I have such a huge stack of games I was meant to play 5 years ago that I'll have to wait until I've played what I already have!! 😅 10mo
Branwen Final Fantasy VIII! 😭 ALL THE FEELS! ❤ I used to love that game so much! It's been ages since I've played! VII and VIII are just such incredible games! I still listen to the soundtracks sometimes! 😁 10mo

DaveGreen7777 I still feel traumatized by the first Dishonored… I went through the whole game without killing anyone to get the achievement… yet the achievement never popped because I set off an explosion as a distraction in one scene, and even though no one was nearby, apparently the game still counted it as lethal force! 😭 (edited) 10mo
wanderinglynn @PathfinderNicole I‘m super excited about HZD2! 10mo
wanderinglynn @DaveGreen7777 oh no! How frustrating! 10mo
tokorowilliamwallace @RaeLovesToRead Do you stream playthroughs? I'll come watch and participate in chat! Are you going to see the adaptation of Uncharted this weekend? 10mo
RaeLovesToRead @Branwen Me too!!!! ❤❤❤ I love Eyes on Me by Faye Wong... That scene on the Ragnarok with Squall and Rinoa 💕💕💕 (I blame FF8 for my disastrous love life, haha).. I have Ff7 remake ready to play (been saving it)... can't wait to play it! 10mo
RaeLovesToRead @DaveGreen7777 I remember you saying! 🙈🙈 That's bogus probably not a good time for me to brag about my Platinum trophy 😉🤣🤣 10mo
RaeLovesToRead @tokorowilliamwallace Uncharted still on my to-play list (I've only played the Vita version so far), so not going to watch the film until I'm caught up. I'm not sure how to stream etc and I don't do Twitch etc. If I ever decide to go for it, I'll let you know. I probably wouldn't be very interesting to watch though.. mainly lots of swearing and running round in circles probably 😅 10mo
Light_of_Aether I've heard great things about both Dishonored and FF8, but haven't played them yet. I also love the Mass Effect trilogy. I played ME3 on release during college. It was spring break and I stayed in the dorms that year so I had plenty of time to play it. I got through it in three days and chose synthesis my first time through. I wasn't a big fan of parts of the ending, but I remember it feeling powerful. Haven't played MEA, yet, but I'd like to. 10mo
PathfinderNicole @RaeLovesToRead they really can be!! Luckily I don‘t have any new game backlog besides Pokemon Legends so I can really focus on HFW! Also, Uncharted is SUCH a fun game with such amazing characters I think that you‘d really like it. (edited) 10mo
PathfinderNicole @wanderinglynn me too!!!! I preordered it basically as soon as I could 😂 10mo
PathfinderNicole @Light_of_Aether I always pick the destroy ending because I like how it gives you hope that Shepard survives. But I agree with you about the endings being not great. I really enjoyed MEA but I know a lot of people really hated it (edited) 10mo
RaeLovesToRead @Light_of_Aether For me, mass effect will be a new experience... I played a bit of the first one back on xbox but got stuck on the citadel trying to scan things!!!!! (Couldn't find the last one and wouldn't leave without it 😅) Dishonored is AMAZING! Highly recommend it. And FF8 was great back in the day... they have remastered it but I have so much nostalgia for it that I couldn't tell you if it stands the test of time! 10mo
RaeLovesToRead @PathfinderNicole I'm jealous of no backlog, haha... I have all these games but I'm such a completionist that I get stuck for ages on collectibles etc. I was unsure about uncharted because a) I'd heard it was very cinematic (and I like to PLAY!) and b) I love Lara Croft and feel like a traitor, haha. Loved The Last of Us by the same studio though 🥰 10mo
vivastory My brother is a massive FFXIV fan. His bday was yesterday. I gifted him this 10mo
RaeLovesToRead @vivastory Ooh, gorgeous! I bet he loved it 😊 I have a couple of newer Final Fantasies to play... my videogames TBP is almost as bad as my books TBR 🤣 10mo
vivastory @RaeLovesToRead He was pleased! I don't play very many video games, although I do need to catch up on Assassin's Creed. I abandoned Odyssey about halfway through... 10mo
RaeLovesToRead @vivastory My preference for starting series' at the beginning got the better of me with Assassin's Creed... I got bored during the first one, but I've heard the newer ones are excellent! I feel I really missed out on number 2 or 3 (the one set in open world Italy). I'll have to try Odyssey when I'm allowed to buy games again. 10mo
vivastory I actually prefer the old school AC. I found Odyssey to be too unwieldy & the map is frustrating & overly cluttered. There are far too many side quests IMO. It's my fave franchise & I have completed every game, except for Odyssey & have yet to try Valhalla, so I have opinions 😂 10mo
RaeLovesToRead @vivastory Is it 2 that is supposed to be the best one? 10mo
vivastory My favorites are: 2, Black Flag, Rogue. I def prefer the older ones. 10mo
RaeLovesToRead @vivastory I've just seen they have a remastered Ezio trilogy released in 2016... I might check it out. I think I have Black Flag on my shelf... on Mount TBP 🤣🤣 10mo
Light_of_Aether @RaeLovesToRead I hope you enjoy them! They're my favorite Sci-fi games. Were you scanning all of the keepers on the citadel in the first one? I don't know if I've ever completed that quest. I'll definitely add Dishonored and FF8 to my TBP. 10mo
Light_of_Aether @PathfinderNicole I wonder if the next ME will choose a canon ending or have any confirmation on Shepard's status. 10mo
RaeLovesToRead @Light_of_Aether Awesome!! Yes, it was those pesky keepers... I was only missing one! 10mo

And for my fellow gamers... I also found this from a while back 😄 Would probably stick Bioshock in at number 10 and put FFviii first 💕
