Tastes Gamey

This blog is about stuff. Sometimes that stuff has to do with MMORPGs.

Monday Morning.

My plans to post screenshots on Friday was scuttled by frantic preparation for guests. My mom and stepdad brought my son out here for a visit over the weekend. It was good seeing the kid. It was even a mostly ok visit with my parents, too. It could have been better, except that my husband is an idiot when it comes to the weird dynamics in my family, so he said the wrong thing and last night my mom called me from home STILL freaking out. Anyway, it's Monday, and I am still tired from the whole experience.

I need coffee. And loud, upbeat music.


Coffee and music accomplished. I am starting to feel almost human. Now I can blog properly.

I replaced Granado Espada with Archlord on this computer. Don't take that as a recommendation, though. GE is arguably the better game and more fun. It is certainly a lot prettier to look at. I may end up going with The Sword of the New World version of GE as my side game, but for now, I am content to grind short sessions in Archlord. My character is only level 11 now, so I have plenty of grinding to do. (It must be the "A" in my Bartle type getting the better of me. )

I still haven't tried Rappelz or Last Chaos. So many games to play and then complain about, so little time. (*smirk*)

I would like to play a major title for a while, too, but I am waiting to see if my husband has a preference for one game over another. I don't know why I am waiting on him. He's happily playing VCO. In fact, that's exactly what he's doing right now. I'm vaguely irritated that he's found a game that he's content to play while I am still restless and hunting for a place to land for a while. I know that's irrational. Being rational isn't my forte.

 I need to get my act together and buy myself a new rig so that I can play newer games that are coming out. I know this one will run LoTRO adequately, but I don't make minimum specs for a lot of other games recently released or coming soon. I could put together something mid-grade but upgradeable pretty cheaply. I know I've written about this before. I just need to stop buying purely decorative junk for the house and put the money aside for the sake of getting out of the stone age.

It's nearly October. I will likely spend most of October pre-writing for NaNoWriMo in November. This will be my third attempt at finishing 50,000 words in a month. I think my life will be slightly less chaotic now that we're moved, so I may actually SUCCEED this year. On the other hand, both EQ1 and EQ2 get new expansions in November. EQ2 gets playable Sarnaks! What are the chances I am going to write instead of playing?

Well, I am doing just that right now. Maybe there's hope for me after all.
