Azur Lane

Add me on Azur Lane 😄

I just picked Azure Lane up yesterday and I think I might like it more than Arknights, we shall see! I played it once before but my kids skipped tutorials so I had NO idea what I was doing. It makes a lot more sense now lol! It’s great for passing the time and I think I’ll keep it since I reached level 30 already. It’s a decent start.

LUCKILY, I managed to start on the Sandy server, which is relatively new so the timing was great. Belfast was one of the reward ships and I have enough gems I’m hoarding for most likely her Live 2D costume releasing end of this month. I sorta love it ☺️☺️

Three main games 🖤

I’ll keep playing both AL and Arknights to see how they go. I do enjoy both and now that leaves Cocoppa Dolls releasing Monday (January 20th)! One thing I’ve been grateful for with my discovery of some amazing anime games is that I was able to delete most of the games off my phone, which was a significant amount lmao! Things feel much lighter these days!

One page, this is epic.

Arknights: First day.

My first 10-roll was not too bad!
Who I chose from pre-registration gift 🖤

I was a little late and have been busy to give it my undivided attention yet, but I am LOVING this game! Arknights is a tower defense strategy game that was globally released today.

Once I more than just cut my teeth on it, I’ll write up a better review but I have to say that I have no complaints so far, the story is lovingly cheesy (a la Girls Frontline), the characters edgy and I can’t wait to get more gameplay under my belt… welp, you know where to find me!

GFL Snowy Nights Event end.

Ready for HOC system?

I got all the drops! (Screens below👇) I had a 5 linked Px4 so I got one of her and I cored her 🙈🙈 I missed I think three days total of the Snowy Nights event so I didn’t buy out the event shop, there were some cheesecakes left 🙈 I’m overall super happy with it. I have a nice cozy dorm, scored quite a few costumes and other gem buys along with event freebies. I am continually impressed with this game. I got a large Play card from Santa 😉 and I spent all but a few bucks of it on GFL lol!

I’m quite close to the required chapter (ch8:2 of 6) needed for the new HOC system that will arrive with tonight’s update, so that is my main focus along with my HG-SG-MG team…

I even lucked out with a landmine fairy some weeks ago, so the timing was perfect on her. This team is my current project for both the next major event and night battle progression. I have some other SGs too, including a x4 linked Spas but this is my current setup.

So cozy!

This week brings me to end of month two of Girls Frontline and I’m still playing it more than my other games. I picked up Dream Girlfriend again, it’s been an on/off game of mine for a few years and Love Nikki daily (again). I’m waiting on 2 games to release; Coccoppa Dolls & Arknights. Lastly, I’ve been working on my video skills so I can begin making walkthroughs that folks have asked for (though there are many great ones on YouTube already!!).

Add me on Dream Girlfriend 🖤

Journaling.

It’s great for the soul and a therapeutic way to organize your life, artwork, and keep lists together. There’s a lot of different ways to journal and I pretty much do them all lol 🙈
❥・・⋆grimoire
❥・・⋆bullet journal
❥・・⋆daily
❥・・⋆art
❥・・⋆sticker binder (yup 🥰)

My bullet journal is a dotted journal I found from Wal-Mart, the cheap Exceed one everyone has essentially. The paper is pretty decent😸 For daily– I use a Hobonichi Weeks, spring version. The rest I do travel journal style: stringed books in a leather cover. I have had some in the past I purchased from seller off Etsy, but for my last birthday D gifted me a #7 Foxy Fix Folio (leather type/color: Spice Juniper) and penholder (leather type/color: Spice Peppercorn) that I had wanted for YEARS! Then, I found a #2 Foxy (Sugar Icing) in a Facebook resale group that I plan to use for my wallet. I will get a new string kit and wallet insert for it, so it’s a work-in-progress.

I’m a super private person so getting to see the insides of my journals is to come, I think… but bear with me y’all, I’m working on it BUT it may be some weird issue like phone use is for me– we shall see!

Some of my favorite finds were a sticker subscription called Stiicki Club, Mercharms for delightful handmade sparkly things, Mildliner highlighters, a bullet journal cover from SewWhatElseIsNew, and my Hedwig dangle is from Love Neen 🖤

Why Royal Chaos royally sucks.

After only three weeks… 🤦‍♀️

My rating– ☆☆★★★

Yeah, it’s that bad. The screenshot pretty much says it all. I shit-you-not reached damn near endgame in Royal Chaos in LESS THAN A MONTH. Like, what sweet fuckery is that?!

I started playing when YouTube Viv made a few gameplay videos about RC. The story ended up being interesting yet badly translated, and by this I mean I have played a shit ton of Asian games and none were this bad 🙈

My bastard love child. Even has my traits & sign, awww 😼

SO. Some aspects of the game have potential if the grammar and animation glitches were fixed. I liked the house, pets, and of course battles but the baby thing was pretty weird.

You literally HOLD HANDS to make your bastard love child (as you’re also still, technically, a concubine of the Emperor Mu 🤮) and dear, milk-swilling, holy, infant Jesus are they babies or LITTLE GOLD SUCKERS because yeah, upkeep is bad. You have to keep it healthy too, which can cost actual money (jade).

Events were only easy to rank in if you spend enough money for jade, are active in a top ranked faction (which I did both, VIP 7 & #1 faction), and remain super social and by that I mean online pretty much as often as you breathe. Obsessively. No, thank you. I got exhausted with that really fast. Because I am… not social.

This game is pretty spendy if you’re playing for anything besides very filthy fucking casual. Lots of odd conversations in Hall chat and some of the others. Creeper type dudes (& chicks) abound. Juvenile drama. The developers, Wish Interactive, are greedy. I really don’t recommend it.

The one upside, I got to meet a few cool girls from RC. My Kisa🖤, most especially!

I 🖤 U!

Girls Frontline.

My rating– ☆☆☆☆☆

Being bored in bed or on the couch means I’ve played a lot of games. Essentially every anime game (😹) especially the gachas. Hundreds of ’em, installed, tested then deleted. Until I opened Girls Frontline. Nothing like waifus and guns from the comfort of the couch!

Girls Frontline is a strategic, bullet hell, map clearing game with cute chibis that are modelled as various firearm makes and models and non chibi form for story and the rest of gameplay.

The animation is smooth and nicely done with much of the artwork done by various talented artists. To each his own but I do love good eye candy 😻

The developers are generous and this is possibly the least pay to win game I’ve ever played, however I do whale a bit to support these awesome devs. I suggest maxing echelons and increasing t-doll space the rest is up to preference and gacha is for cosmetic purposes only. Gems are easily obtained by clearing chapters with S rank. You can find the Sunborn GFL site here with links to install the game from your os app store. You can also follow GFL on Twitter for event updates and new t-doll releases.

The story is nicely done and voices are a neat touch, some like MDR’s manic laughter when you tap on her in the dorm totally makes my day when I hear it’s adorableness.

I’ve been playing since early October and have made pretty good progress. Unlike another game I recently quit for many reasons, getting to late game and finishing story 3 WEEKS in isn’t exactly a good thing in my fine opinion *coughroyalchaoscough 😼

Feel free to add me, my list is full up but it shifts around a bit from time to time! This is an introduction and rating of the app game Girls Frontline, gameplay articles are to come.
