December 2017 Screenshots

I did some end-of-year cleaning in Star Wars: The Old Republic and I’m down from 13 different characters to 8, one of each class.  And I have 4 of them all they way through the story that is out so far!  Only 4 more to go now.  First I had to re-roll my Jedi Consular to keep the appearance I like best but switch to the advanced class I like better.  I was able to get her from level 1 to 53!

From Padawan (above) to being Barsenthor of the Jedi Order (see below)!

I also had to choose which of my three bounty hunters to keep, I ended up keeping the one I like to call the ‘Lisa Frank of Bounty Hunters’.

Lastly, I got a new hairstyle and outfit for my Sith Inquistior and got her through the story all the way!

November 2017 Screenshots

November brought an update to SWTOR so I’m having fun enjoying the new flashpoint and trying to organize all my different characters.  😉  Before the update I was still playing Mass Effect.

Then, playing through the new flashpoint in Star Wars: The Old Republic!  It was fun to see more of the Chiss, even though I don’t have any screenshots with any Chiss in them…

Looking forward to seeing how this story arc ends next year!

Happy N7 Day!

Celebrating 10 years of Mass Effect this N7 Day!  Then later this month we’ll be celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary!  A good month all around. 😀

First, Mass Effect 1, which began my love of Bioware’s video games.  (I guess it really started with Knights of the Old Republic, but it’s close enough.) 😉

To Mass Effect 2, the best sequel ever:

And finally ending Shepard’s story in Mass Effect 3.

And now on to a new start with Mass Effect Andromeda!

Looking forward to more Mass Effect adventures to come!

October 2017 Screenshots

Yay for the screenshots of the month!  If you remember from last month, my current Pathfinder has had a haircut.  Her ponytail kept sticking out behind her in a weird way so I went with a shorter style.  😉

Meeting the Archon, the games main villain, has the crew a little tense:

I also continued on my journey to get one of each SWTOR class up to level cap and I’ve almost made it!  All I have left are my Sith Inquistor and my Jedi Knight, seen below.

I’m having fun getting used to all the classes I haven’t played for a long time.  It’s kind of fun to play through and get their different perspectives on the events going on in the galaxy.

September 2017 Screenshots

September was a mostly Star Wars: The Old Republic month for me.  I was able to get my Imperial Agent up to level cap and through most of the story.  The Imperial Agent storyline is definitely one of my favorite!  I played as a Chiss this time because they are really cool, just look at Admiral Thrawn.  😉

And here she is surrounded by her allies:

At the end of the month I went back to Mass Effect: Andromeda and continued with Jane 2.0.  I still love the freckles!

Ready to start the adventure with the Pathfinder team:

Still just as fun as ever!

August 2017 Screenshots

I’ve actually been playing a lot of games and taking a lot of screenshots lately, which is always fun!  This post is late because life is still crazy busy but going well.  We’ve made it to the sixth week of school, suffered through a week of stomach virus, enrolled Sean in speech therapy at the local elementary school and much more.

But, this post is about gaming, so on the screenshots! 😉  First, I finally finished playing through Mass Effect: Andromeda on Jade Ryder.

It is such an epic, beautiful game!

After I finished I couldn’t resist playing around with the new Character Creator options for my next playthrough: meet Jane 2.0.  I’m so glad they added freckles!!

Since then I have been back in Star Wars: The Old Republic.  I really enjoyed the new flashpoint, even with the sad ending, can’t wait to see what happens next!

Also, I kept hearing that the class intro scenes had been redone so I created “baby” Jaihn to play through it.  And here is Jaihn, my very first character in the game, as she looked five years ago at launch:

Just a few pictures from my July gaming, again I didn’t get much done but it was kind of a crazy month for us!  Still enjoyed a little bit of Dragon Age: Inquistion:

Back in the Deep Roads again, the realm of the dwarves:

Still working on my third Mass Effect: Andromeda playthrough, now making new friends on the ice plant of Havarl:

June 2017 Screenshots

I bought some Star Wars comic books in June and realized I missed Star Wars: The Old Republic.  I leveled my Sith Warrior up to the level cap and got her through all the story finally!

Then I went back and ran my main character, Trooper Jaihn, through the Iokath story chapter that came out recently.

Lastly, I started working on getting my first Bounty Hunter through all the story up to level cap.

Lastly, the Steam Summer Sale is going on this week and I bought Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.  I’m enjoying it so far!

X-Wing: The Bacta War by Michael A. Stackpole, I’m really enjoying re-reading the X-Wing series and enjoying all the details that I understand now that I have read the X-Wing comic book series!

May 2017 Screenshots

I actually created three different Ryder’s in Mass Effect: Andromeda this month because I wasn’t sure which I liked better.  After many attempts I decided on my three favorites.  First up I chose this one to play through as the Ryder brother for the first time:

I also created two more Sister Ryders, first up is this really cute one with a pony tail.  I really love the ponytails in this game!

Lastly, I couldn’t resist choosing pink hair for the last one I created.  I am currently playing through  the game with Jade and it is quite fun with the pink hair.  🙂

April 2017 Screenshots

So many Mass Effect screenshots this month!  I was able to finish up my second play-through and I think this character is my favorite so far.  First up is Sara rescuing the Moshae:

I love all the textures and effects in the game, especially when snow/rain/dust accumulate on your character’s armor.

Investigating a Remnant vault:

The space map is beautiful!

On a mission with Vetra:

Reyes causing trouble again. 😉

I loved the lighting in this cave shot:

Taking time off for dancing.

Meeting the family. 🙂
