    1. 6th July 2013 Lots of video game dreams and interesting XCOM game

      by , 07-06-2013 at 10:47 PM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Pretty fragmented recall, but that's alot of recall anyways, haha.

      Dream 1(fragments):

      I was playing some FPS game that i really liked, coop with SilentEternity, at some point we were is some semi-destroyed building fighting some big insectoid thing. Then game suddenly glitched out and turned into something like half-life. One of weapons then gave ability to literally punch the enemy using a headcrab.

      Dream 2(fragments):

      I was watching an let's play of game that looked like KKND2, player was talking about some mission, telling that it's hard and failing horribly. Then i decided to try same mission and it was pretty easy, i was talking with SilentEternity and we just came to conclusion that that player was just really bad at it. Map was pretty open and i apparently could control units of different colors, red and purple, there were superadvanced mechanics as an bonus unit and i was placing alot of turrets. Enemies were trying to attack the base but failed and then i proceed to attack their huge base and won.

      Dream 3(fragments):

      I was playing Left 4 Dead, unlike IWL, it was solo game, i was progressing through some dark city and at some point i was in some small building, there was alot of broken glass and wood and there were melee weapons and each time i aimed at one, character was doing funny animation like thumbs up. I notice game having weird ambient sounds, which sounded like something from old Resident Evil games.

      Dream 4(fragment):

      I was playing some FPS game with SilentEternity and at one point we were searching for something in a dark maze of some kind. There was something about robots.

      Dream 5:

      I was watching some old XCOM let's play, the player took out alien base and then was doing fairly well on one crash site, then it turned out to be multiplayer and second player took control of the alien side and there was last one sectoid left, which killed off whole XCOM squad, then game glitched out almost completely with sectoid walking off in the glitchy distance.
      I went to chat about it with SilentEternity and was suggesting some different XCOM game, then we were talking about TTS and he mentioned some new XCOM game. We decided to try it.
      The XCOM base in it looked weird, like some kind of huge 3D underground rocket control center, then something broke and one of constructions collapsed. Then there was a mission in forest, i was controlling XCOM squad and had to clear the place of aliens, they were various and there was some aspect of bases, some of my troops could build barriers and turrets and aliens had some structures too. Eventually i won that battle and we decided to switch the sides.
      On alien side there was alot of stuff and then we were doing similar mission. I had wide variety of units including some kind of bulky flying drones and an alien black dragon-looking thing that was very powerful and had ability to increase amount of time units for a turn and ability to get over barricades. I rushed XCOM craft location with all units i got so his forces had to retreat, victory.
      Then there was some cutscene in space and it was giving some numbers about something, related to mass or gravity or something like that, SilentEternity says that numbers are totally wrong because they are simply too small for anything like that.
    2. 1st July 2013 Long dream, Video game mix

      by , 07-02-2013 at 12:35 AM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Pretty long and cool dream and good recall.

      I was in some video game on some mission, i was with some group assaulting enemy base and searching for something, then it was like an RTS and i was commanding some forces, some of which looked like something from megaman series, then we were at some power plant place and we used some technology to fly into the sky(possibly jetpacks).
      There was some passage built in the sky that lead us to the train station. We were using trains to travel around on rails right in the sky, the structure of place was weird and i figured that the game is full of references to various stuff, on the way we met cartoonish woodpecker and wolf that were fighting eachother all over the place, setting traps and stuff. We were having a bit of problems with switching rails and dead ends, but eventually after getting back and forth we got to some old temple entrance, in the sky.
      We were going through the passage and there were a few switches and traps, i disarmed one trap that was some kind of idol connected by the rope to the ceiling that fell when triggered.
      Shortly we reached the other side, which was kinda futuristic metallic area, like space station or base, with alot of different paths, we were exploring and fighting enemies, we reached the rooftops area and we were on the top of some palace apparently, there was pretty cool view over the nearby area. But we had to go back and then through temple again, i accidentally triggered that trap with falling idol, which almost hit one of the team, then we were back to the train station and on the train we went to another place.
      It was some kind of a dark fantasy town, game turned RPG-stylish and SilentEternity joined instead of the team that was with me before. We went exploring some locations in the town and then some graveyard while he was explaining some of game mechanics to me, including something related to inventory. We got some quest and we went to the canyon, we were on the top and there were some turrets, enemies were running through the bottom so it was like some kind of tower defense game.
      Done with that we returned to the town, that's where story of the game catched up. There was something about reviving ancient dragons of various colors to fight them. One was revived after the mission but we could not fight him because we were not ready. We talked with him and started the fight anyways, but we had to retreat. Shortly dragon flied away to somewhere else and we were attacked by more enemies, i died and i noticed class change window, i selected some other class.
      Now i was some insect-like thing, somewhat like mantis, but a bit larger than human, and i actually felt different, it was awesome, i went to inventory screen but then noticed lack of stuff that i had, SilentEternity mentioned something about that different classes don't share same inventory. We continued fighting enemies and our next goal was to find some gem items around the town. I noticed that my attack stat was lower than with the previous class and i could use some kind of modules to change stats around, SilentEternity said that it's better to have balanced stats than highest attack anyways so i switched stuff around till it was balanced. I also could use some kind of magic attacks.
      After finishing with gems we went to another mission. It was happening in even darker place, it was very open area with few chunks of ground floating in few places and some dome-like structure in the middle. it was pretty difficult, alot of enemies were spawning around, there were some humanoids with long arms, some with weapons and also some ranged enemies that looked like liches. After alot of kiting and running around trying to take them all out, i managed to die again, though this time SilentEternity casted revival spell in time so i was back in the fight. We had to target enemy spellcasters because they were the only enemies not respawning and they were guarding the items that we needed. Soon SilentEternity was too low on HP, we had to retreat but too many enemies followed, we had some glorious dialogue and then i found some option of HP transfer and gave some of it to SilentEternity, we fought rest of the enemies and defeated them.
      Then i was randomly back at the level select and was trying to unlock hidden level behind the wall, i got through the edge of the screen incorrectly and due to glitch my leg was stuck in the wall on the other screen......... it felt very very very weird then dream ended.
    3. 2nd June 2013 Chandelier, False Awakening chain and glitches

      by , 06-02-2013 at 11:46 AM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Dream recall from today's naps. Today is the false awakening day, and also glitch day.

      Dream 1(fragment):

      I was playing some video game and there was location in forest.

      Dream 2(fragment):

      I was in some dark city place.

      Dream 3(fragments):

      I was at different room at home, i was doing some things and then went to sleep. Family was distracting me and i couldn't fall asleep, everyone was moving furniture around and bed was becoming smaller and smaller. Then i went to different room and was doing some other stuff. Then back in bedroom furniture placement was again messed up. I finally went to bed and for some reason i was hoping to meet Chandelier again. And so it happened, there was loud noise for a few seconds, then it repeated again, and again this time with image getting through, and again and then it was here. I was surprised that it worked but then...
      I wake up in another room, my
      hands are weird so i am dreaming, but before i can get up, my vision freezes and desyncs from everything else i feel, i am confused.
      Wake up again, the lights are on, but aren't on, like some kind of lighting glitch? I get up and...
      Then there are like four more short false awakenings with similar glitches, variations and furniture changes, after
      that i wake up properly.
    4. 24th Apr 2013 A couple of short lucid dreams, Glitched sawblade, Ultraloud noise

      by , 04-24-2013 at 10:37 AM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Dream recall from today's naps. Short WILD and short DILD, still a good result after yesterday.

      Nap #1:

      I am in my bed and i have feeling that something's different. I open eyes and room is indeed different, i take off headphones and can still hear binaural beats, confirming that i am dreaming. I notice mom doing something on the table to the left, which is table that is not in my room IWL. I get up and rub hands, dream stabilizes, but as i walk towards the balcony i accidentally make an error, i think about the waking body in the bed... and i wake up.

      Nap #2(fragment):

      I was in my room, i was recording some game, but i was controlling it from the distance and apparently my PC was not really there? I recall there was some part of the level with falling platforms. While recording i noticed that there's alot of circular sawblades on my bed(Sawblades looked like ones from Half-Life 2), i was a bit annoyed and kicked them off the bed onto the floor. Their physics glitched out(Again, like it happens in HL2) and two of them were stuck floating in the air horizontally. I sat onto one of them while recording, and then was thinking that i finally recorded something while sitting on the sawblade and how awesome it is( ).
      Ad i finished with recording i went to do an WILD attempt, as i was falling asleep i
      felt something different, like that i am dreaming, but for some reason i can't open eyes. I start rubbing hands and after a few seconds i can open eyes, though not fully. In a few seconds the pillow starts shaking and there's loud noise that gets louder and louder, it gets ridiculously loud and then changes into a snore as i wake up properly.
      Dunno if it was an actual snore or HH...
    5. 20th Apr 2013 Various video games, Search for mutants

      by , 04-20-2013 at 10:19 PM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Dream 1:

      I was in some kind of survival game with team. We built a base using some kind of big brown cargo containers and after that we were attacked by some enemies. Containers were not very good and soon we started getting holes in our defenses, but then we got upgrades going and enemies couldn't pass them anymore, after few upgrades the containers turned into something more of concrete blocks and walls. We also got some automatic turrets set up.
      After that we went to do some kind of mission and game turned into something like Spiral Knights, we were progressing through some kind of dungeon and enemies there were more advanced and hard. We had a bit of problems and had to skip through a few enemy groups. I recall one of advanced enemies being purple slime of some kind that had an 'arm' formation.
      After we were done with that we were back to base and i was checking some GTA-like games... in the game? Though most of them were really glitchy and were crashing and/or erroring soon after the launch. One of the versions was like 3D version of GTA 2, but also every wall was black colored like if texture was missing and everyone was an enemy, there were no neutral people. It crashed after some time too. Soon the dream ended.

      Dream 2:

      I was in some kind of zoo and there was a problem where mutants(?) were disappearing from cages, like somebody was stealing them. I was searching through a few places for clues and i had some special powers, ones that i can recall being ability to zoom in view, and other being some attacking ability related to electricity.
      At one point i was overlooking forest from some balcony and there were bandits that i had to avoid or deal with. Later i was visiting some kind of compound building, there were some kids which were cooking food and there was a character which looked really similar to Hinata from Naruto anime. After eating some food(which was delicious) there, and avoiding some more bandits, i got somewhere else, probably into the place where someone was hiding stolen mutants, but the cages were empty, i was too late.
      Then dream randomly skipped to the scene where the main character of Syphon Filter game gets killed with an headshot in some tunnel. And then dream ended.
    6. 19th Mar 2013 MMO, Infinite wood debris glitch, Dark matter constructions in the sky

      by , 03-19-2013 at 08:10 PM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Dream 1(fragment):

      I was playing some kind of MMO with a friend, we controlled some characters from top down. I was annoyed by p2w(pay to win) system and then friend bought everything for both of us.

      Dream 2(fragments):

      I was in some game in 2D, that looked like Terraria. Screen was very limited and i and some people were fighting some enemies. Then screen expanded and some tree was misplaced on the level, ending up being in the air, which caused error that started spawning infinite wooden debris. View switched to 3D and now i was in the park. The infinite debris spawning error was in the sky and it produced bigger and bigger wooden debris which were falling through the ground. I noticed that sky is more like skybox in video games and decided to meddle with it a bit. I ended up creating some kind of... dark matter objects, hard to describe but they were basically geometric objects made of dark matter strings and they also were connected to the 'walls' of skybox, they were randomly moving and connection was 'dynamic' in a way that base of strings that was on the wall was moving with those. I was satisfied and then some artist with long hair showed up, he asked if he could add to it and i was fine with it. He added more detail to the constructions and now they looked even better. After that we were boasting about our art to random people that were around the place.
    7. 2011-02-18.2 | nonlucid

      by , 02-19-2011 at 04:33 PM (Short Stories with Tragic Endings)
      I am in a chair in in dark room that looks like a common room or something. I am sitting there under
      covers, going to sleep I guess, but my eyes are open. I see some guy I don't know walk by and go out
      the door. I look over at the TV ( CRT ) which has suddenly turned on and it is as if it is angled away from
      me. The screen is the glitchy purple color an lcd gets when viewed from an angle. The tv is slowly turning
      toward me and finally the color resolves. I think it is "That 70's Show". I wake up. It is dark and in my dorm
      at college. I should have realized that I have been sleeping in for a while now and it should be light but I
      didn't. I wake up, without moving, I think about the dream and decide not to write it down. Instead, I
      decide to try WILDing. I remain still and the sleep paralysis comes instantly. I feel immense pressure practically
      contorting my body. I feel like one of those mutating creatures from horror movies. My foot is on the edge
      of the bed and slips off, the "transition" dies down a bit but when my foot stops it continues again. I think,
      "It was not this intense the first time." then it stops. I think, maybe I've entered a dream? No, no I haven't.
      I get angry with myself
      and wake up for real. I decide, a false awakening would be a good thing to
      put in my dream journal
