Monthly Wrap-Up: February 2022

 

Looking back at my Monthly Wrap-Up for January 2022, I was right about a few things–mainly that I wouldn’t get much else accomplished besides playing Elder Scrolls Online and reading. I will say that quitting Genshin Impact has been a really great thing for my wallet.

 

Wrap-Up: Games

The Elder Scrolls Online

I’m very pleased that I’ve managed to Champion Point/Level 600. Got a long way to go, but it’s always nice to make some progress. I am also very excited that I’ve managed to get to level 50 in all of the crafting skill trees, and was able to complete a lot of sealed writs to purchase all but two crafting tables for our new guild hall.

 

Horizon Forbidden West

This stunning game has taken over my life right now and I have no complaints (well, except that I have to kill small woodland creatures to upgrade Aloy’s pouches.) Only a game like Horizon Forbidden West could pull me away from my all-consuming addiction to The Elder Scrolls Online.

 

Overwatch and Dead by Daylight

My friends are really into the suffering that is both Overwatch and Dead by Daylight right now, so I’ve been playing those games in between everything else. I am really enjoying the new wiggle mechanics in Dead by Daylight.

 

Wrap-Up: movies and tv

The Book of Boba Fett

Don’t attack me fellow Star Wars fans, but I’ve never been a huge fan of Boba Fett. I’ve always found him to be a relatively flat and uninteresting character, until he showed up in The Mandalorian. So I wasn’t exactly dying to watch The Book of Boba Fett. So far, I’ve watched a few episodes of this Disney+ show and I’m finding it to be very cheesy. I definitely don’t enjoy The Book of Boba Fett as much as The Mandalorian, but I will probably get around to watching the rest of it eventually. I find Temuera Morrison’s acting to be rather stiff and lackluster, so I really just watch it for Fennec, aka Ming Na Wen, who kicks ass.

 

Texas Chainsaw Massacre

I had the misfortune of watching the new Netflix take on Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Honestly an hour and a half of my life I’m never getting back. The acting was positively atrocious and the plot perhaps even worse. I didn’t think it could be worse than the original movie from 1974, which really didn’t hold up well, but I was wrong. I will say that the actor playing the killer did a great job living up to the original Leatherface, and the killer on Dead by Daylight, but noticeably, he didn’t have very many lines, something I wish I could say for the other actors. The Leatherface actor just had to be menacing, and he did it well. It was definitely fun watching this absolute dumpster fire of a movie with friends though.

 

Wrap-up: Books

I’ve read five books so far in February, and ten books this year in total. I’m hoping I can up my reads per month in order to meet my Goodreads Challenge for the Year. Unfortunately, it just takes me forever to get through books in The Wheel of Time series. I did actually follow through and reread and review Poison Study which I mentioned wanting to do in my January 2022 Wrap-up.

 

I am currently working on reading Jenn Lyon’s The Discord of the Gods, which thankfully has the most linear story-telling out of the entire A Chorus of Dragons series. I’m really enjoying it and my fingers are crossed that I like the ending to this series.

 

Wrap-up: Webtoons

 

I am reading an ungodly amount of webtoons right now. On top of the ones I was already reading, like The Hopeless Desire of a Witch, Men of the Harem, What It Takes to be a Villainess, The Readymade Queen, and more that I cannot even remember right now, I picked up even more daily webtoons on like Please Leave Me Be, The Return of the Eighth Class Mage, The Lady I Served Became a Master, and more. Check out my post Daily Webtoons I’m Reading for more info on these webtoons!

 

Looking to March 2022

I hope to finish watching The Book of Boba Fett and to make more progress in both Elder Scrolls Online and Horizon Forbidden West. Next month, I want to read the third book in The Wheel of Time series, The Dragon Reborn, and I will definitely be reading and reviewing other ARCs I received, such as When Women Were Dragons.  Look for reviews of What Moves the Dead and Discord of the Gods in March as well!

 

 

 

What are you up to this month? Did you purchase any of the new games that released in February?

  1. Congrats on ESO progress! I forget where I was at… maybe CP200? Close to maxed crafting, ish. And so, so many story quests to do.

    I’ve only watched a few episodes of The Mandalorian so you’re in good company on being behind on Star Wars things! I usually just gravitate to Netflix and watch something random over there.

    Have never heard of webtoons. ? What are these? Like web comics? Light novels? Will have to go sniff your other post. ?

    • Thank you! Yeah, it can certainly be overwhelming with all there is to accomplish in that game.

      I found that between gaming and reading, watching things and knitting is usually what I fall behind on.

      Yes! Webtoons are like comics! I think the ones I read are technically manwha (Korean graphic novels, alternative to Japanese manga) a lot, and they’re available to read on the web or in apps! I usually read them on my phone! ? But be careful, it’s a slippery slope and you’re reading 20 daily before you know it ?
