No, I’m not dead, although posting’s been light lately. What have I been up to lately? Here’s a brief summary of my gaming life over the last few weeks; some of these items might merit full posts when I get some spare time.
- I finally purchased a mount for my main Warcraft character. It’s a bit embarrassing to have taken so long to finally buy a mount–I’ve been playing for well over a year now–but mounts are really expensive, and not until very recently had I bothered to really work the in-game auction house for spending money. At any rate, now that I’ve got my mount I can finally hang with the cool crowd. And start saving up for an epic mount…
- And speaking of Warcraft, I got suckered into buying a starter set for the new World of Warcraft CCG. With a baby on the way, the last thing I need is another game upon which to spend money. Hopefully my wife will intervene if things get too ugly.
- I played the Hackmaster roleplaying game, and loved it! I loved it enough, in fact, to go out and pick up the core rulebook myself, and I’m already scheduling a summertime Hackmaster game with my wife and a friend. What a unique game; I’ll try to post further thoughts about that this week.
- On a bit of a lark, I installed and fired up the classic computer RPG Baldur’s Gate. I am a big fan of the computer RPGs created by Black Isle (the BG games, Fallout, Planescape: Torment); seized by nostalgia, I decided to try playing through Baldur’s Gate 1 and 2 back-to-back. So far, so good; we’ll see if I make it all the way through both of them this summer. It is actually taking me some time to adjust to a non-Warcraft RPG. It’s a fun change of pace.
That’s the quick update. Hope you’ve had as much gaming fun lately as I have!by
