I make sure to never take pics where there's any monsters...I have no combat pics of this game in all my like 500 pics i took since i started playing. But god knows most of the maps are loaded with them. There are 964 different types of monsters/enemies/animals for you to kill in this game (well some of those are inanimate things to destroy) overall this game is a slaughter fest in a month of playing you'll probably kill 50 000 npcs at least...and that's probably a low estimate, game tells me i've killed 36 000 in the last month and half or so and i spend most of my playtime in the game NOT killing enemies... Also, out of towns, not many friendly npcs, and in the desert region even players are almost absent, nobody goes to that part of the map or barely, it's one of those games that makes expansions that become kind of useless once you've done all the quests/gathered all the stuff in it. Well there's grind spots but otherwise that's about it.

Anyway to continue, probably the least interesting sequence of pics i have of the region



when at last i made it past the canyon i came to a small farmland and i took the time to rest next to sp,e nice tree, there beyond finally laid the black desert. Which wasn't black at all. But then again maybe it was just a trick of the light.

Image



right below the farmland, Sand Grain Bazaar, doesnt look like much from above, isn't actuallty much

Image


I took a pic of this little area of it as you can purchase these houses that are IN A CAVE!!! if you SOMEHOW feel like living at the edge of a desert in a place where there's no marketplace. Not to mention the houses are tiny and have no windows save for the front tiny one. But they're houses in a cave which is neat.

Image

Image

Anyway, disappointed with sand grain bazaar i purchased a camel and braved the desert...

Pretty soon i was dehydrated and hallucinating sunburst guitars in the sky and feeling like it was the 70's and also i couldn't remember my name, cause i was in the desert (where you can't), but despite my declining mental and physical state i have to admit the sight of endless sand dunes was quite......well it was boring, its just a fucking desert what did you expect. It's just sand, which i hate because it's coarse and it gets everywhere, it's just a dumb long desert and it's totally not black and it sucks and it's just there to piss you off, like all deserts ever. It was then that i became fully aware that this game was quite stupidly named as it is named after a desert which is not black amd in which there's pretty much nothing interesting to do at all and that wasn't in the original korean release of the game (it was a later expansion) and that as far as i know has no real relevance to the plot of the game. It's like if you'd named Zelda like..Lake Hylia or something. Tht's without mentoning..why Online? There's never been a Black Desert NOT online game. So just call your game Black Desert. They didn't put the online in Elder Scrolls Online for fun. It's to tell you it's an Elder scrolls game that's a MMO (well it's also not really an elder scrolls game).

Image


I went further in enough to take a pic with my camel (yes i normally rode it but somehow i have no pics of that, you can ride your horse in the desert (the game doesn't allow you to ride any horse with no name though) but it can't sprint. However I found the camel sprint to be about as fast as a non sprinting horse so i'm not sure what's the point and so i never bothered with the camel again....well i guess it can jump, which the horse can't in a desert but being that it's a desert.....why would you need to jump? (i lie a little there's some rocky sections on the outskirts but still)

Image

I then decided to turn back around and make my way towards THE MYTHICAL DESERT CITY of Valencia city by going around the desert instead of through it. Which yeah, you can except it's a much longer way but it's also visually a lot more interesting (i'm skipping from my narration here all the countless quests i did at every turn, or the myriad of enemies slaughtered, though in the desert even enemies are scarce).

milk i love how you play games so much. it seems like you enjoy games that give you freedom to direct your way-of-life within the world, and its always delightful to see those ways of life play out. i think your posts make clear that you have a truly stellar soul.

I hear you, I often have the same romantic visions of what games could/should be, and have visions of travelling and exploring and living beyond what the developers intended. I also don't do math, min maxing in games, I love monster hunter like broodstar but I play the game completely different from him

I have also now officially spent more time in the Discovery Tour mode of Assasin's Creed Origins than in the campaign, just traveling around Egypt and standing in the spots where you interact with npcs, like miming haggling in front of a vegetable stand

Does seem to me like Breath of the Wild would be your perfect game for these kinds of adventures though. At least among offline games.

my sim is now pregnant with her third child by santa. i'm going to do some fertility buffs so she can hopefully have twins. i decided this is a great lineage to populate my sims world with, me and santa claus, he's a great dad (tho worthless when my sim is pregnant!!), has limitless money and our kids are really cute. he's gotta die soon so idk how many more babies i can make but ideally i would have at least a set of twins so i could make The Fifth Child like the kid in the book (i downloaded an autism spectrum mod)

Imagine turning on your battery powered radio after the apocalypse, searching the airwaves for any sign of humanity, and through the snow and noise a faint voice finally comes in and it says "my sim is now pregnant with her third child by santa"

Something numinous about that phrase

Might be a gameplay spoiler, but I just played a short game with that ASD mod: I wanted to roll a sad incel-type who's obsessed with vampires. Gave him Dork, Slob, and ASD because I wanted him to be awkward in all public and social situations and I only had one free trait slot.

It was fine at first, but if his needs weren't met immediately he'd fly into a really emotional fit, which made him a pariah whenever he wasn't alone and meant I had to drop everything to bring him back to calm. And turns out your sims can die from emotional trauma. At some point the dude was arguing on the Internet in his den, threw a dramatic fit over something, had a heart attack on the spot and died. Death came (who uses a tablet now, v. progressive), the whole bit. Dude never did meet a vampire.

My next family will probably move into his house to see if they can meet his ghost and bring him back to life.

the gag is except that Autism trait mod pretty much everything else mentioned is stock game

edit: and i guess that sex mod you linked. that's one of the bigger/weirder ones. i like that one cause it gave my incel dude a 'jerk off to porn' computer option, which really drove home the lonely realism i was shooting for

my objection has nothing to do with the sims or sex positivity and everything to do with turning the autism spectrum into a gross, reductive on/off trait you dingus

the complaints are re: using the ASD mod to do some voyeuristic shit regarding people with autism, which you're comparing to "lonely sad incel-types"

oh well that's an entirely fair complaint, i'm sorry. i didn't meant to suggest ASD was an incel trait. i just needed to fit multiple anti-social traits into one slot and nothing else worked. the mod's from an anti-ableism collection

if so, the creators would probably prefer people not use it as a way to gawk at someone's invented caricature of what a disability looks like.

we love the jerking off mods, to be clear.
