Guild Wars 1: Ritualist Skill Review & How to Make a Team Build

This week saw me complete the Ritualist portion of the Skill Review Project. So that's what Saturday was all about.

On Sunday, I decided to take a break from the Prebuild challenge that I was doing to talk about how to make a team build in Guild Wars 1. This is something I have somehow neglected to do thus far, a fact that was brought to my attention by a friend of mine.

Final Fantasy XIII Episodes 26-30

Two-thirds of the group had met up at Hope's father's place by the start of the week, but they didn't get to rest long before PSICOM caught up with them and the game transitioned to focus on the remaining one-third of Sazh and Vanille. Massive stuff goes down with them involving Dajh, Sazh's son, and the events surrounding the boy becoming a l'Cie. However, Sazh and Vanille ended up captured. The rest of the team learned of this and went to rescue them!

Guild Wars 1: Assassin Skill Review & PvP Prebuilds only Challenge Run Continues

This week I covered the Assassin profession in my Guild Wars 1 Skill Review Project. I've been both enjoying and getting a lot out of this project, but I'm also looking forward to the conclusion—it takes up a lot of time! Just three professions left to go...

I also continued my PvP Prebuilds only challenge run, this time making it over the Shiverpeaks and through the Gates of Kryta!

Final Fantasy XIII Episodes 21-25

This week saw part of the party united in Palumpolum, as Snow and Fang rescue Hope and Lightning from the military. I also spent a bunch of time trying to figure out why I have been disliking the combat system so much.

Guild Wars 1: Skill Review Project Monk & Start of a Challenge Run

On Saturday, I reviewed the Monk skills for my Guild Wars 1 skill review project.

On Sunday, I started a challenge run series, where I play through the missions of Guild Wars: Prophecies while only allowing myself to use some old PvP prebuilds (many of which are terrible, and some of which don't even work correctly anymore).

Final Fantasy XIII Episodes 16-20

I spent a lot of time this week making my way through the Gapra Whitewood. I also spent a lot of time talking about my thoughts on Final Fantasy XIII's design.

Guild Wars 1: Skill Review Project for Necromancer & Wayfarer's Reverie

This week, I reviewed the Necromancer for the Guild Wars 1 Skill Review Project.

I also decided to play the Wayfarer's Reverie quests. All in one go. This...ended up longer than I was expecting. But, hey, I did it with four different characters! So you do get to see different playstyles across the course of the video.

Final Fantasy XIII Episodes 11-15

This week, the party slowly made its way through the Vile Peaks. Sometimes they were together, more often they were apart. Also, the game is continuing to introduce new mechanics. To be clear, this is fine, but it does feel like it takes a while for it to add all of the core combat mechanics.

Guild Wars 1: Ranger Skill Review & Journey from Lion's Arch to Ascalon City

This week, I did the Skill Review for the Ranger. I've again made it six parts, as that hopefully makes it more approachable!

I also learned last time that my female Dervish, Elandra, hadn't yet been to Ascalon, so the last video from this week is the journey from the port city of Lion's Arch to the ruined capital of Ascalon City.
