My amusement moves back and forth regardless of where I want it. Sometimes the same thing can amuse me for six hours and sometimes I can’t stand it for six minutes.
I like to blog what I’m doing but then I feel bad when “What i’m doing” is six hours of this game every week with no variations. That being said I moved in January and I’ve got time on my hands in volumes I’m not sure I know what to do with.
So here I am, blogging again. Let’s talk?
Before January I did a solid run around WoW as my roommate and I brought her boyfriend into the game. Leveling characters and running dungeons with great amusement. You’ll see some pictures and some comments in- or out-of-character as I see fit. This turned into some GW2 (Guild Wars 2) and from there I figured out why I play GW2 and drop it two weeks later.
As I was salvaging and collecting parts for what they call an Ascended Staff, I ran more than a few dungeons for money. It’s the players I encountered, the way they treat playing the game that ruins it for me. A sadness gripped me as I realized this and that I probably won’t go back anytime soon. It’s a very pretty game and you can see some pictures I made over on my tumblr site (I’m sorry, I was just testing out some ideas. I wasn’t cheating on you.) http://egoprovince.tumblr.com/
I’ve been in World of Warcraft again for almost a year now. After a friend threw 20 bucks at me to fish him up some pets ingame. After that it was just easy to leave my account on and join him for a weekly raid. Raiding isn’t my most favorite but I enjoy it enough to return once a week for 2.5 hours. Imagine if you will ~12 half-drunk people doing dumb things and getting killed and trying again. Amusing, yes? And that’s why I go back.
My new roommates play Star Trek Online and moving in started an amusing approach to STO and for two months I played the hell out of it. I’ll play again and again but I’m taking a break to do other things. Notably, Minecraft. Star Trek Online is a solid game and they’ve added and are adding more missions and story, players are building more stories for you to play and the ships are very Star Trek. I recommend it highly as it’s quite a good game (still).
I was playing a phone game, Hay Day, when the farming ideas there kept whispering to my brain. And so I turned my attention back into MC to run around my server and do some farming and exploration.
inFamous: Second Son released, after playing the first two I was an am excited to play it. I’m hoping to have my hands on a new Playstation 4 soon, but regardless you’ll hear my thoughts when I venture there. I’m tweaking some mental ideas about recording some of these games I play, posting to YouTube. We’ll see where that goes.
