Status Report: Week 39 (Destiny 2 Insanity)

What you are looking at is an extension of my Destiny 2 madness: the first half of the first page of a four page list of weapons (including name, type, and current light level). I have them broken down by character. I started with my main (my Hunter) listing weapons by type: exotics then legendaries. I eventually worked my way down to different Ghost shells.

I did this because my vault is already bursting with weapons I’ve been saving for my Warlock and Titan. I didn’t want to accidentally delete anything, so I thought the list would help me make sure I knew exactly which character had what.

And yes, that’s my handwriting. That’s me trying laughably hard to be legible.

Yes, I’m serious.

I actually didn’t play any Destiny on Thursday or Friday (weirdly), so I made sure to hit it as hard as I could on Saturday and Sunday. I notice that I’m less and less fond of the four person Crucible teams, and even less fond of being forced into one of the two playlists where you can’t even choose which mode you want to play. I also made sure not to play Trials as I’m terrible at it and it makes me unspeakably grumpy. I know I didn’t start playing online multiplayer games until I was in my 30s, but holy heck, some people are so fast, I just can’t compete. I do try, though.

After plodding through the weekly Crucible challenge, Shaxx actually gave me something wonderful (a definite change for him): a really keen sword. I exclaimed out loud several times because I was so happy that I didn’t get yet another useless reward. I mean, sure the exotic engram I’d gotten during my many Crucible matches decrypted to yet another duplicate, but the sword more than made up for it.

I was one pleased Guardian.

This week I see much more Destiny 2 in my future (shocking, I’m sure). I also have a couple other things on my radar.

I have commenced decorating for Halloween/autumn and already the space feels exponentially cozier (photos to follow upon the completion of decorating). This week my goal is to get the lights and other things up and then see how everything looks. If it looks like it needs a little more, then more will happen! I have the strange urge to make a bunch of God’s eyes, so I will probably do that in all sorts of autumn colors.

And, while I watch many horror movies year-round, I am super behind on some of my newer acquisitions. I’m going to try to catch up this week, so that means I have a ton of horror movies on deck including: The Autopsy of Jane Doe, The Bye-Bye Man, A Dark Song, Don’t Knock Twice, Elle, The Final Girls, The Hatred, Raw, Rings, and so many others. I’m pretty excited to finally put them on and catch up. I do love horror movies and I have yet to watch any of those titles.

With all the Destiny 2, decorating, and horror movie-ing, I don’t know how much else I can cram in this week. I’d love to try playing something in addition to all this, but I don’t see it happening. I’ve been itching to play Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice so I might see if I can squeeze a little of that in.

What are you hoping to play this week?

  1. Hey Rebekah! I started my playthrough of TT’ Batman series, season 2. It’s off to an interesting start. The Riddler is darker than in the comics. Period! Plan to play some tomorrow, hopefully! As of late, it’s been too hot to do too much of anything; stay still & hydrated due to the heat.

      • I concur 100%. It’s going to cool off here towards the end of this week. I’ll be busy in my kitchen cooking, baking, etc. Also, I can bare to game again now that it has cooled off. I’ll be back to Batman tomorrow after work. How is Destiny 2 shaping up for you? Does it meet your expectations?

        • Destiny 2 is a strange beast. I’m compelled to play it, but it DEFINITELY has some issues I hope Bungie patches out.

          I’m glad it has finally cooled off there! I hope you enjoy your gaming!


  2. HA the last game that made me break out a pen and paper was the 2011 Mortal Kombat and I wrote out my move set. Years later my wife found the paper in the kitchen for some reason, clearly my handwriting but seemingly gibberish, just arrows and numbers. Over the weekend I got a few hours in Destiny 2 but I’m still switching between greens and blues with the exotics gifted in the campaign. I’m not yet filling up my inventory. I likely won’t have much time to play this week but I will this weekend. Over the weekend, my wife and I both watched The Shining for the first time. We were both terrified and then accompanied each other throughout the house for the remainder of the night. Here’s to making it successfully through another week.

    • Oh my gosh, that’s pretty funny! I can only imagine someone finding that list and going…what on EARTH is this?!

      Yay!! I LOVE The Shining! I also love that you two stuck together throughout the house for the rest of the night. That’s adorable. :)

      And here’s to that! This week is already off to a not great start for me. I came down with either a nasty cold or a weird flu. My throat burns and everything feels gross. May it pass soon!


  3. While I don’t watch horror movies, I played through an horror game! Dead Space 2! Pretty good game, but it’s so intense and stressful…half-hour of gaming feels like I’m playing for at least four hours. But it’s so good to finally play a good game after the awful Agents of Mayhem(level and mission design in this game is just…ugh).

    Now I’m playing XCOM 2, my first XCOM game. I’m starting to understand it better but as the game gets harder I can see everything going south fast! I hope the sniper Corporal Rebekah Lang is able to survive a few missions! I made a friend of mine and he died in the first mission burned by a random fire…I felt bad and replayed the mission, lol.

    Have a nice week!

    • I’ve always heard such good things about that game! Man, that description is brutal. If each half hour feels like four…YIKES. And I had no idea Agents of Mayhem was so bad. Yet another YIKES.

      Oh man, out of the frying pan and into the fire! I’ve heard XCOM is brutal! I wish you much luck! And I am a sniper?! THAT IS SO RAD!! I hope I serve you well!

      Oh NO. I would totally have done the same thing. :)

      I hope you have a nice week, too!
