2020  by                            Birthdays are always a weird time for me

because they seem like they should be these important occasions in your life…  but in reality it is just another Thursday.
Traditionally I take today off, and as a result you don’t get a post because I go into “vacation mode”.

However with the whole Covid 19 situation and the fact that I am still working remotely

combined with some stuff going on at work that I don’t feel like I can miss.
you are getting me in the flesh today.
I had a subtle realization this morning and I thought I would share it with you, my friends and readers.
I have been writing to you through this blog for a quarter of my life.

Back in April Tales of the Aggronaut turned 11

and as of this morning I myself turn 44.
It is weird when numbers line up like that, but in truth I am not sure if I could have found a better group of companions to listen to me as I ramble on about nonsense.
Thanks for being there on this journey, even if it has been in passive lurker mode.
I do appreciate however each time someone comments about something going on in my life because I feel significantly less alone in the world.
Once upon a time I was one of those kids who made zines, and I was especially prolific during the fighting game heyday.
I would print them up at home and then go pass them out at the various arcades I visited, because they also sorta served as a general guide for new players when something like Mortal Kombat II was booming.
Admittedly there was a lot of rumor filtered in with the truth, but for the most part they were a guide to how to do all of those things like Friendships and Babalities, allowing new players to stop getting dunked on with a simple guide to all of the abilities.
Writing my blog post each morning is sorta like trying to hand you a zine, and even the folks who didn’t want to take it…  I appreciated them not throwing it away while I was still watching.
There are still several events happening in the winding down of what would have normally been E3 week.

Today at 6 pm my time I should be able to tune in and watch the EA Play Live show

at which point I am hoping EA continues its path towards being a less horrible company.
I mean to be truthful we have some pretty solid evidence that something has changed there recently.
For starters instead of nuking it into oblivion, .

They are rebuilding Anthem and going to give it a second chance
A few weeks ago they put all of their games back on Steam

and even though they still require the presence of Origin… that is a start.
Lastly we have the evidence of Jedi Fallen Order being a phenomenal game that exists without any micro transactions in spite of EA’s once stance of cramming them into every game.
I am willing to give the company an olive branch, .

And also I am wondering if it is only Americans that personify companies like this

Last night I played some Destiny, and I admit I am feeling a little rudderless.
I am not exactly sure what I want to be doing or how I should be doing it.
In theory I should be focusing the various avenues to get powerful or pinnacle gear, but this season doesn’t really seem to have a clear path forward.
At the very least I am not exactly sure what I should be doing to level up the magical engram box for the Drifter.
The acquisition of that level up currency seems significantly slower than any of the other similar seasonal mechanics.
I feel like we are missing something like the Vex event to pour our energy into, because the planetary events are just painful to try and get started.
I think right now everyone is focused on the next easiest way to get engrams…  grinding Nightmare Hunts.

I’m also still playing a significant amount of Phantasy Star Online 2

but I gotta admit things have slowed to a crawl there as well.
I’m level 68 and about halfway through it, and in truth what I really need to find is a group to grind advance quests with.
The challenge there is that my natural play group that is associated with AggroChat podcast is time shifted from me.
Kodra, Tam and Thalen are all getting on about the same time that I am logging out for the night.
Ash is an option but I think he is back engaged with Guild Wars 2, and Grace never really attached to PSO2.
In theory I should be running with Pizzamaid and friends but I am not exactly sure if those times line up either.
Essentially it leaves me in a state of limbo where I spend most of my time soloing.
I realize this post turned weird all the sudden.
I guess birthdays become a time for introspection.
I hope the day goes smoothly, because there are significant landmines in front of me to cross.
The day could go south really fast if a few things go the wrong way.
Regardless thanks for hanging out with me all of these years and listening while I talk some nonsense.
I write like I am talking to myself, but as I have said many times before I do greatly appreciate knowing there are real people out there reading what I write.

June 9, 2020June 9, 2020  by                        Good morning friends.

I’ve been playing a non-casual amount of  Phantasy Star Online 2 over the last few weeks

Most of my posts about the game thusfar have been largely explanatory, given that there are a truly nonsense number of systems to digest.
At this current moment I am level 60 of 75 and the leveling process has slowed down significantly.
Imagine a train pulling into the station, each time you tick past 10 levels you feel a noticeable slowdown in just how much momentum is happening.
I expect the 60-75 grind to take as much time as the levels previously gained to be honest.
I’ve not really noticed this that much however because the game provides a bounty of large set piece content for you to participate in.
Right now I am mostly focused on “very hard” content, though I could bump up and start doing “super hard” though I am not sure the added difficulty is worth it.
Several times a night something happens call and Urgent Quest, and for a period of time you can participate  with other players on the server in a group activity.
These feel similar to the Alliance Raids you can participate in while playing Final Fantasy XIV.
My current favorite of these is Dark Falz Luther, which is a multi part event.
The first phases involve 30 minutes of farming the oddly bong shaped creatures two images up which drop a ton of meseta and worth a sizeable amount of experience.
Once that phase finishes you get to fight Luther itself in a big raid like encounter with mechanics that more or less need to be observed.
This phase can be done only once per character and tends to drop some pretty significant rewards.
After which you end up with this cool screenshot moment of the entire team.
I’ve been lucky enough to participate in this event each evening over the last several days, and in part this is probably why I have gained several levels in rapid sequence.
I’ve not really encountered one of these urgent quests that was not worth my time either in loot or experience gained, and as a result I tend to look forward to them when they are announced by the ships public announcer.
It also helps to make you feel like you are part of a larger community.
Another thing that I first thought was really weird, but I am now warming to significantly… is the fact that every so often there are “Live” vocaloid concerts in the shopping area.
I am not going to go into what a vocaloid is, but SEGA appears to have a cross promotional relationship with the folks behind “Hatsune Miku” and “Megurine Luka”.
There are item packs associated with both that can be gained through the in game loot boxes, and periodically a concert happens of a song called “Living Universe”.
I admit that at first I considered this a bit on the odd side, but players legitimately turn up for these and as a result they become yet another spontaneous occurrence of community in game.
I tend to turn up if I am available because of the prevalence of folks firing off various symbol art.
I am slowly curating a collection of these images, and I absolutely snagged “Meatwad” shown above.
I don’t personally necessarily get the vocaloid thing, but I don’t really have to in order to understand that it is good to have these moments of spontaneous gathering in a game.
The game has this built in farming culture that I also find interesting.
When something is going well people tend to stick around and ride the experience and loot until it stops being interesting.
I was doing a mission the other day that no joke gained me half of a level at 57 and the entirity of 58 all while just sitting in the same place.
We had a full compliment of twelve players and for some reason this beach decided to start paying out in droves as we went through the course of three different PSE bursts.
No screenshot can do justice to just how fast we were killing things and how much loot was dropping.

This is the closest I have ever seen to the fabled Destiny Loot cave

Sure most of the loot that dropped was trash, and I only actually picked up any of the “red” items which denote the higher rarity items, but the experience was fun regardless.

I have to say the longer I play Phantasy Star Online 2 the more I end up enjoying it

Sure it takes a long time to really begin to grasp all of the systems and how they intermingle, but eventually you read a point of equilibrium where you are doing interesting things every day.
The longer I play however the more of the community aspect I am experiencing, and while it is not necessarily my traditional jam, I definitely appreciate it.
A fancy horned lad pole dancing in the cafe if nothing else breaks up the monotony.
