#KieryPlaysDestiny

WarlockSo I’ve been playing Destiny, and it’s not usually my kind of game. It’s FPS for one thing and Multiplayer for another, and I usually like soloing and not playing with people – so when the only way to level is to raid with 5 other people……it can make for a frustrated Kiery. However, in a surprising turn of events, I’ve really enjoyed it. The100 is a great way to find groups, and mine is really low-key and nice and have been pleasant to game with and I don’t feel unsafe with them.

All that to say, I finally got my Warlock to level 32, and yet…AND YET…still have not gotten ONE exotic weapon drop from ANYTHING. I’ve been working my butt off doing bounties and crucible but Iron Banner and buying helmets from Xur are the only reason I’ve made any progress at all. I got my first exotic bounty on Saturday night because apparently I just finally turned enough bounties in (IDEFK) to get one, so I’ve been playing through the Strike Playlist to make progress on acquiring my first-ever exotic weapon, which will be Bad Juju.

I also started a Titan in hopes maybe it’s just my main that is somehow under a Bungie Curse Of No Loot and to increase my chances of exotic drops, but that little Exo is only level 2.

Anyway, I had to hit cap before I got a fucking exotic bounty and have yet to receive ANY drops, but I FINALLY have one, and I’m happy about it. Hopefully this ends the no-drop curse and I actually start getting things now, because seriously……


The Future

Dream job didn’t pan out, and the Ruby Academy was cutting it too close to moving for my sanity, so I decided to go to plan C….

Which is basically do more of my own thing, quietly. But maybe not so quietly.

I recently snagged a Nerd Deal bundle full of game dev and game design courses, which means I have something to do in preparation for the April Ludum Dare!

This also opens up time for me to actually work on those Ruby projects I’ve been sitting on….

After I move I’m looking forward to getting back to making shit again – learning Ruby and javascript (again, for real), C# and Unity and game design and how to make game art, doing several game jams, and making more comics – maybe FINALLY making the comic hosting alt I’ve been wanting to exist for ever.

Making the things I want to see in the world is what I’m basically about anyway.

 

In the meantime, you can find me playing (and possibly streaming) Destiny.


GamerGate Part 2

They Doxxed Felicia. I made a video and disabled comments but screenshotted all the responses I’ve recived. I locked down everything I could because I was afraid of being doxxed and while the responses I’ve gotten could still be classified as polite in comparision to what I’ve gotten on twitter, at the core, it’s condescending mansplaining at best – thinly veild threats disguised as cautious advice at worst (lets not even get into the whole operating under the assumption I don’t know what I’m talking about/am impressionable BS).





The moral of her story is essentially the same as mine: I’m not letting fear shut me up. That doesn’t mean the fear isn’t real though. Felicia was doxxed almost instantly after posting her really great piece on it. Just for saying she disagress. They target the people they identify as women or other marginalized people. Notice how other men who have also called out GamerGate’rs for their behaviour haven’t been run out of their homes?

GamerGate supporters, Go fuck yourselves.
