    1. 23rd Oct 2013 Fragments, Dragons, XCOM

      by , 10-23-2013 at 03:00 PM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Dream recall from today's WBTB/naps.

      Dream 1(fragments):

      There was something about dragons and there was interesting old-school video game music playing.

      Dream 2(fragments):

      I was using some 3D editor and was making some kind of a chasm or a cave.

      Dream 3:

      I was playing new XCOM against SilentEternity in multiplayer, it was an open forest like map in the night and i've apparently had group of mutons including elite and berserker. I've send berserker ahead and he immediately discovered two enemy mutons, they were both out of melee range. At the end of movement berserker moved by himself towards one of enemies, but was still not close enough. Strangely, attack option was still active, with 1% accuracy. I used and it did hit, with critical, and OHKO'd enemy muton.

      Dream 4(fragments):

      I was going through forest and on some road and there was a random car.

      Dream 5(fragments):

      I was browsing some dragon images and there was one image of black dragon that had some description.

      Dream 6(fragments):

      There were two dragons and one was telling some story to another and then they started talking about changing email or something.
    2. 4th Oct 2013 A bunch of video game and story fragments

      by , 10-05-2013 at 12:54 AM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Dream 1(fragments):

      I was playing some game and it was about some town in the desert which was attacked by some mutants and there was some time limit, i was using some kind of jeep alot and levels were very branching with multiple characters/storylines. Later i was playing some 3D platformer that was like mix of some that i've played before, there was a global map with central island and four smaller islands, filled with level select areas and in the middle of central place there was an observatory where game started, then i've had to setup alot of controls and i was sitting strangely far from monitor.

      Dream 2(fragments):

      I was playing some 2D puzzle game.

      Dream 3(fragments):

      There was some story about two kids finding out about some organization and deciding to join it. There was a subway near which some of people from that organization were hanging out, kids came here, one through subway, another found way through rooftops somehow, there was some talk and some of people had special abilities but then kids apparently had them too and they were accepted. Then everyone went somewhere else.

      Dream 4(fragments):

      (Kinda continues story from dream 3)
      Some members of the organization were showcasing abilities in the forest and there was some talk and something about lady with knifes and a survival 'game'.

      Dream 5(fragments):

      I was playing some game on extra hard settings and i had to defend the hill from very powerful by controlling bunch of characters and tricking enemies into traps. In the end i've had one character left and i've tried to use whole lot of mines to stop enemies.

      Dream 6(fragments):

      (Kinda related to story from dream 3 and 4 as well)
      I've had interface, kinda like XCOM2012 and i had an army of Cyberdisks and Sectopods in some city under my control, then i've found enemy army but most of them had like 3-4 HP so i've used cyberdisk's grenades to take bunch of them out, enemy also had special character that had powerful effect when it died and global buff when alive but couldn't do anything else and i was trying to figure out what that effect was before killing it, so i was looking for organization profiles and found out that it was not so dangerous. Then there was a cutscene about that character, which apparently was related to lady with knifes.
    3. 16th July 2013 Season clash and more video games

      by , 07-16-2013 at 11:29 PM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Dream 1(fragments):

      I and some other person were dragons, but we were in human form to stay hidden. We were visiting some landscape where multiple seasons were clashed together, there was some wooden house in winter part of the landscape where we were talking to someone about history of the place.

      Dream 2:

      I was in some group on some site, we were discussing something about dragons, then someone else joined the group and we were discussing in other chat whether to accept him or not. We accepted and went to play some video games. I was showing off how far i can get in some 2D platformer/shooter game, where i controlled some glitchy square thing that could change size and eat enemies, the levels were made from orange color blocks and said enemies were some yellow circles with emoticons that could shoot bullets. The level was pretty mazey and i was not really good at navigating it, i got pretty far but eventually failed.
      Then someone from the group started streaming some game that looked like front mission 3, except levels looked different. There was one level in docks where enemy controlled wanzers got shotguns and an ability called "Big Guns" that increased damage.
      Then we all started playing some version of XCOM TFTD that was really different, for one the game started with nothing at all, no squad, and an menu of submarine creation where we had to build submarine from parts and modules and then buy soldiers and stuff. Then the game itself was more difficult than TFTD(which is already difficult) and we were failing hilariously.
    4. 9th July 2013 Typing DJ entries in a dream

      by , 07-09-2013 at 12:35 PM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Dream recall from today's nap.

      Dream 1(fragment):

      I was at home and there was a weird noise coming out from a router(i don't even have router IWL).

      Dream 2:

      I was apparently typing dreams into dreamviews DJ, remembering ones from earlier(fake memory i guess, or?), i had already had many typed, more that usual, huge walls of text. I decided to reread them while visualizing. One was about some kind of base, which then turned into XCOM-like fight on that base.
      As i was reading i was interrupted by family and there was talk about sleeping schedule, but i refused to change it. I was back to checking DJ and was one about battle in AI War and some missile frigates, clearing up the territory. Then i had one lucid dream i was typing as well(Except it was not lucid, but i was thinking it's lucid when was typing), in which i was at home and was ambushed by some robotic drone, but saw it's reflection and punched it away before it could do anything. Before i could finish typing/visualizing, dream ends.
    5. 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.
    6. 22nd June 2013 XCOM - Impossible mode?

      by , 06-22-2013 at 09:11 PM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Dream 1(fragments):

      I was playing AI War with SilentEternity and was controlling an H/K mk5, we had some problems capping some planet.

      Dream 2(fragment):

      I was near some kind of factory.

      Dream 3:

      I was playing old XCOM: UFO Defense and just did standard setup of everything, then shortly intercepted UFO and started the battlescape mission. It was happening in some village/city area that didn't looked like any of original tilesets, it was medium scout and there were not many enemies, but their AI was really good and they actually decently positioned their units behind objects and such. My units had pretty high stats for starting units, except for accuracy, and i managed to screw up one of my best XCOM soldiers by not looking at time units when scouting. Also interface had a few elements from XCOM: TTS. On alien turn he got shot twice and killed, i decided to reload save and try again, this time he got shot only once and survived with 2 HP and 2 critical wounds, which means i have only one turn. He has ridiculous amount of time units though so i make him pick up plasma pistol from enemy, which he could use somehow, and go on a killing spree. Shortly there's only one enemy left which looks like space suit version of calcinite from XCOM: TFTD, i use last of time units to auto shot at him from plasma pistol, but before killing him, XCOM accuracy demonstrates itself like usual by friendly firing at another trooper which was near that calcinite and which detected that in first place. I win the mission, curious about score, but for some reason i only get -10 points for losing XCOM troopers and nothing else. After a while landed UFO gets detected, time for another mission! But no, aliens figure out what's going on and there's huge screenshake, then earth just goes poof. Game over!
    7. 18th June 2013 Random stuff and more XCOM

      by , 06-19-2013 at 12:45 AM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      I was in some kind of school and there was something about magazines and video games, i was talking to some people then i went somewhere else and there was some discussion about drugs( ), then there was some very strong, but short dude helping me with something.
      Then i was playing XCOM TTS as aliens, had a group of snakemen hiding behind obstacles, then through some tunnel i got one to the enemy base, which looked like some island, and blew it up using grenades.
    8. 18th June 2013 XCOM/BfW Hybrid

      by , 06-18-2013 at 12:19 PM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Dream recall from today's nap.

      I was playing XCOM TTS, battlescape map, it was some mix of village, city and forest, but forest was represented by graphic from another game, Battle for Wesnoth. I was playing as aliens but instead of alien units i had units from Battle for Wesnoth, especially there were heavy infantry that could throw grenades and also bowmen. Though they looked different, but they acted completely like aliens in terms of shooting and inventory, XCOM were successful with attacking inside the UFO, but i had a bunch of 'heavy infantry' that was left outside unnoticed and eventually defeated XCOM troops. Interestingly grenades were using time units while aiming per second of aiming, not only for the throw itself.
    9. 11th June 2013 XCOM, Roleplaying game

      by , 06-11-2013 at 11:15 AM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Dream recall from today's naps.

      Dream 1:

      I was playing XCOM TTS with SilentEternity, there was some jungle map and i was controlling aliens, i had good positions but reaction auto-fire of XCOM soldiers had ridiculous accuracy.

      Dream 2(fragments):

      I was joining an roleplaying game on some forum and there were some rules everyone had to follow, we were discussing a bunch of stuff then i was exploring some mountains, searching for secret places. Then eventually we have reached final area and that we were playing on hard and it was not hard enough and then one of game masters commented that there was another game that had this level of difficulty as easy, but after some discussions it was changed.

      Note: i had nearly full recall of second dream as i woke up, but once i moved, most of it was gone.
    10. 1st June 2013 Video game fragments and mini false awakening

      by , 06-01-2013 at 11:49 AM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Dream recall from today's naps.

      Dream 1(fragment):

      I was playing first level of Contra: Hard Corps and somebody was commenting.

      Dream 2(fragments):

      I was playing some game with SilentEternity that looked like new XCOM, played like old XCOM and had completely weird set of units. We were controlling each different team and at one point one of my scout units that looked like a dog had to fight enemy robot mini-tank like unit. The game was taking place in snowy place that looked like village but with a few industrial structures.
      Then later i was talking with SilentEternity on skype and he was "ping testing" some videogames with weird names that looked like their author had broken caps lock, one of the game names SilentEternity mentioned was "tHE pIT".
      Then i had very short false awakening about some family members entering the room and then i
      woke up properly.
    11. 10th Jan 2013 Various videogame fragments

      by , 01-10-2013 at 11:49 AM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Could not remember the dream fully, only a bunch of fragments(note: fragments other than the first one and the last one are listed not in chronological order(could not remember it)).

      I am playing a bunch of video games with some people, and it looks like i'm viewing games through my viewpoint instead of monitor when i am playing.

      There were a game that looked like Super Mario World, or rather, like an editor of it. I was trying to make some sort of simple level consisting of the ground level and the bridge high above it.

      There were a game that looked like xcom from the geoscape view, but once 'zoomed in' it was sort of RTS with bases and stuff. I remember one of the missions being defense of the base on the edge of charm with only a few soldiers. Also i had very hard time to figure out how base building from geoscape works for some reason, was restarting the game a few times.

      There were a shmup game that looked like it was made with Fraxy, it was slow vertical scroller, there were walls and enemies were exploding into suicide bullets when killed alot. The level looked like inside some sort of space station.

      There were a game where i had to control some sort of spy, and it involved hiding from enemies and searching for something. One part involved jumping between rooftops as well(i think it was escape).

      There were a game that looked like Heretic, except the weapons were really overpowered and enemies came in really big numbers. I was playing coop with 2 other people. There was one red magical halberd-looking weapon that could annihilate whole ot of enemies when thrown, and could be thrown very quickly. Also there was sort of boss that looked like sectoid from xcom, except that it could fly and it was firing some sort of green triangle-like projectiles. I think i was disappointed how easy it was compared to the level after defeating him.

      Now we were done playing games and we are discussing something while sitting around big table, discussion gets heated and one of people jumps onto the table and challenges me to the fist fight, i accept and jump onto the table too. The fist fight starts and i proceed to defeat him pretty quickly. As i win the dream ends.
    12. 6th Jan 2013 more XCOM and short WILD

      by , 01-06-2013 at 02:22 PM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      Late entry is late, was going to post it yesterday but had no time to write it.

      Anyways was doing more of WILD nap attempts and accidentally fell into too unconscious sleep. Also i guess from now on gonna be coloring dream parts different color like some other DJ writers do.

      I was in my room(that looked differently) playing some of old XCOM again, there was battle near large scout full of floaters. Everything went well until suddenly game started cheating with time units, and then everyone started recovering time units during periods of time so the game turned from being turn-based to being real-time.

      I woke up, but decided to lie still for another attempt.
      Which went successful, starting as an false awakening in my room, i was about to get out of bed and do some stabilization but them some sort of spanish-accent voice said from behind of me something like "easy sparoni"(no clue what that means), the dream faded out and i woke up.
    13. 31th Dec 2012 XCOM TFTD Tournament

      by , 12-31-2012 at 08:47 PM (Scionox's Journal of Dreams)
      This is last part of the dream that i remember.
      There's some sort of tournament on the game XCOM TFTD, and someone in the team can't play for some reason, so i am replacing him. It's somehow game 1v1v1v1(dunno how that works) and the map is underwater temple area. I move my troops through tactical positions and eventually end up fighting for the center of the map. Don't remember who won though.
