The Game Room / Infinite Galaxy

Infinite Galaxy by Camel

I started playing this mobile game about a year after it's release.  I started out in Server 87 and played as a free player.  As usual, if the content of the game is not productive for a free player, it really doesn't have much merits for play quality.  Well I'm still playing it after two years plus even after multiple server mergers.  I have also become a micro transaction player, but only after two years.

This is a space warship strategy game type, real time simulation.  You collect and build a flagship and then build a collection of fleet warship.  You make or join an alliance in a guild fashion.  Donate to the alliance and level it up to allow more members.  A standard build your tech attributes at the alliance level, expand your territory om space. 

Early game strategy:  There is a simple campaign mode that gives single player a somewhat story mode.  This is where the free player mode is mostly focused on PVE.  There is also a flight shooter mode and is free player in design too, but is limited to how far one gets in campaign mode as well.  Now a big portion of the game is based on space exploration.  So you send your probes out and wait till the come back.  The further out you explore the more time requirement there is.  Plus some side quests comes from those exploration discoveries.  There is a limit to the campaign mode and it ends almost to easily.  The same for the flight shooter mode as well, but it is more based on the enemies that are just too powerful to shoot down in the time limit.   

Being a war strategy game, yeah you could shoot other players or become a victim yourself.  So there is a race to become stronger.  This is where paying players clearly have an advantage.  There is a VIP level bonus and of course paying for it clearly gives on an advantage.  Also giving that paying player the first flagship designed for PVP advantage.  In simplicity even the very first payment package clearly gives a player advantage.  Then there is luck when opening dropped gifts that may give one a bonus of a flagship or crew that defines one's stats.  For a free player, yeah one is at the mercy of whatever the games gives you.  For paid players, they can just buy the flagship or crew when such packages becomes available.  Of course there are only certain things that a paid player are given access to.

Like all online war games, there is a need for a base of free players that will always be fodder for the paid players.  Most free players will probably last about 6 months to just over a year of play time.  It's mostly because free player contents ends and it's no fun being shot down at every event by paid players.  Then there are whales that eat up everything the game has to offer.  Of course most free players hate them, but the reality is these guys keeps the game free for the rest of players.  One could say that high paying players probably spend about $5k to $10k a year on this game.  The whales are spending over $100k a year on this game.

There are routine daily missions.  There are weekly routines events.  There are monthly events.  Then there are tournament events.  All are design to drop certain materials used for becoming stronger.  Growing your battle strength through technological advancement and increasing your mining of resource amounts.

There have been many changes, as online games goes.  Certain contents are gone forever while new contents become the core of the game.  There are certain events that have been a once only and that's what makes online games unique in their own rights.  There has been one cross collaboration event featuring the anime/manga Legend of Galactic Heroes. 

Outdoors & Recreational Hobbies / Internet Influencers ????

There's something about the internet.  If it's on it, then it must be true.  NOT  :D

There is a lot of information available and given that there are some people who really do represent that information and making it available to others.

Then there's those internet influencers who merely entertain and regurgitate the information in a misrepresented way.  What is up with all these people online doing youtube unboxing of fishing equipment and then giving their in depth review.  People talking about Diawa and Shimano and don't even know the real difference when it comes down to it.  Yes there will always be a fanboy of a certain manufacture, but do they really know what they're talking about or just throwing words written down somewhere by someone else.

People can't even get their parts descriptions correct like, rotor, pinion gear, level wind, ARB, etc., they just throwing words out there in their vids.

I guess I get bored sometimes...


Three Body

Three Body Problem

Three Body Problem animation version

What a weird series.  Scientist committing suicide because science is broken.  Could we say that science is just another derivative of religion?  Something like that.  I'm all confused and it don't make any sense.  Well partially because there's a problem with the subtitle translation.  Partially is that one probably needs to be a total science geek to understand what half of what they're talking about. 

Still gonna watch it and see where it goes...

Anime | Manga / Ranking of Kings

Ranking of Kings

The anime is low quality, however it is full of powerful emotional motifs.  More of a developing drama in the make than most.  The first episode is only so so, but one can get the feel of the developing plot.  The second episode provides more substance and it where it really gives purpose to this story.

Whoah this one is pretty good.  At first I thought it might be a predictable side story regurgitation, but it is definitely for mature viewers.  Anime quality is only average but the twist a plot is definitely a thriller theme.  One thing about this anime is that the ending of each episode does not leave you hanging.  It does come to a good conclusion and also leaves you looking forward to what the next episode will introduce.

Outdoors & Recreational Hobbies / Fishing Reports

Went down to the St. Croix today.  It's windy, snowing and cloudy.  Temps was freezing with the wind too about 28F degrees.

Well the water level is up and a lot of floating debris from the flooded shoreline.  Of course all the trees and downed timber made it impossible to cast worth anything.  All the  floating debris also meant that every cast you're hooked over something floating.  Mostly dead shoreline grass and other dead vegetation.  So nothing biting.

Outdoors & Recreational Hobbies / Ice fishing is Nice wishing
« on: September 05, 2021, 12:39:30 AM »
Ah all summer long, all I think was ice fishing.  That simple minded idea of pulling up a fish at your feet through a hole in the ice.  It's just so satisfying.

Although it does take some work to find fish.  Sometimes it's just luck, drill a hole in the ice and boom fish are biting.  Sometimes it's no luck, and it's just wasting time out there.

So it helps to get a few gears together to enjoy the time and peace of the tranquility of snowfall on the shelter roof, bare the freezing windy conditions, and just sit in that camping chair and doze off.  Let's see what this next season will bring us.  What's the latest gear?  What's the latest gossip?

And always, the best'est secret'est fishing lure or techniques.  The big fish stories, whether they be true or full of embellishment.  Or the tried and true methods of old will always produce.

Outdoors & Recreational Hobbies / New fishing reel
« on: August 25, 2021, 04:18:48 PM »
Gosh I tell myself I have no need for it.  However with just a few mouse clicks, I went a ordered a new reel.  D'uh D'oh D'ang.  I guess all that time not fishing, means I'll just spin the reel at home for no apparent reason.  Just to have it.  Shimano shenanigans.  Twin power wins.

And to date, since my Curado BFS reel finally got delivered about a month ago, I still haven't even put line on that reel.
