Under new pain management

The past three years I’ve dealt with chronic pains from hypermobility and my doctor diagnosed that I have Tietze’s syndrome as well. I’m guessing I’ve had that for the past three years as well, but because I had so many different symptoms, they overlooked it. Add a permanent neck injury to that, an ankle bruised on three different places which might not go away and shoulders which really like to subluxate. I used pain killers, NSAIDs and analgesic gels. But none of them worked well enough. I recently started doing Tog Chöd, Tibetan sword fighting, and my teacher taught me an exercise to help me control the pain. Two days after doing it, the pain is gone.

The Play List – Post Lan Edition

2013-04-28_00005

I’m back from the lan party and it was awesome. This lan party is held at a four star hotel, so the beds are good, the food is good and the chairs are comfy. The best, of course, is the people. This group is limited. Friends of friends only and you have to be approved. So all the assholes and cheaters are kept out. No one will steal your controller or hard disk when you go to sleep. The conversations are great during dinner time and on Teamspeak. I love these weekends very much. Maybe even more than real vacation. So what did we play?

The Play List – Pre-lan

2013-04-20_00001I´m still recovering from the shoulder injury from a few weeks ago. It´s not smart to rush recovery, so I took the time I needed. I did play this week, but I already feel my muscles when I play for several hours. Obviously, the more passive the game, the longer I can play.

Next weekend I’ll be at a lan party with my friends. I know most of them will be playing Modern Warfare 2, which I won’t. I can’t play any kind of shooter or first person game without getting a terrible headache after ten minutes. I do hope we can play some other games, like Magicka, Tower Wars, Dungeon Defenders, Impire or SimCity. If no one wants to play with me, I’ll probably try to finish Dragon Age or another RPG.

So what did I play?

The would-be Play List

Last monday I finished my daily for Guild Wars 2 and startes a new playthrough of Dragon Age:Origins. I still need to finish Awakenings, the other DLC campaigns and 2. I would’ve finished most of Origins by now if Tuesday didn’t happen.

The Play List

I’m not the kind of gamer who sticks to one game. I also blame my chronic neck injury for messing with my concentration span. It’s so short! Some games I don’t even play for ten minutes and I’m already bored. My Raptr Weekly Report looks silly, but some games stick. So what have I been playing lately?

What are you doing?!

Civilization V

I don’t know? That’s always my first reaction to that question. Mostly because people only ask me that when I’m doing something silly and I really have no idea what I’m doing. Sometimes, and I know I’m not the only one, I’m letting my subconscious take over and do weird things. I don’t mind, as long as I don’t hurt others, break anything, hurt myself and I’m having fun. So, what am I really doing?

Night Circus

Night Circus

Night Circus

I’ve set a challenge on GoodReads to read 52 books this year. The first new one I started was Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Last year I stumbled upon a game called Fallen London. One of FailBetter Games’ other projects was Night Circus. Both projects are interactive stories based around a card and inventory system. While Fallen London works better as a game-like interactive story, Night Circus’ story held me captive. I knew there was a book, so I stopped playing. I kept getting cards I just used or couldn’t use, so it would’ve taken me a lot of waiting time before I knew the whole story. I went to London for some Christmas shopping and of course I went to Waterstones. That’s where I found the book.

Free Dota 2

Dota 2

I still have 11 Dota 2 invites to give away. Steam has restricted it to be available for anyone but the chinese region. I’m sorry. If you don’t have Dota 2 already and you do want an invite, add me on Steam (nickname Endalia) or leave a comment with your steam profile or nickname. Steam is required to play Dota 2. I’m sorry again, but it’s Valve rules. If you already have a copy and want a second, for whatever reason, I have to disappoint you. Steam will say you already have a copy and I can’t give you another.

New Gaming Rig

After years of waiting I finally have my own high-end gaming rig! Finally! The only thing I’m still missing is a good monitor and maybe a better gaming keyboard. This monitor is the HP one we got with the pc my parents bought eight years ago, if not longer. I’ve been using my five-year old Asus laptop to game on or I borrow my parents pc for all the graphical heavy games such as Guild Wars 2 and Diablo 3. I tried to keep my gaming to a minimum using their system, because of complaints. Last year, before Diablo 3 came out, I told my mom that I’d buy my first, very own pc with my first paycheck. So I did, and now I have it.

Magical Diary

Magical Diary

Anyone who uses Steam regularly knows they have a big end of the year sale in December. This year the sale is quite small, compared to last years, when there were 1600 games with discount varying from 10% to 75%. I usually wait for this sale to make big purchases. I’ve bought a few games already and my favorite of the season is Magical Diary. It’s an indie visual novel game by Hanako Games.
