Wow! It’s June! I can take my countdown from weeks to days. Only 28 days to go!
Here is Matthew McAndrews’ Modem Problems comics for this past week:
Gah, June! Where’d THAT come from so fast?!!
EQOA: Nope – didn’t do any. Though we almost did on Thursday, but train schedules got in the way.
Eve Online: Played around with it. It’s still interactive wallpaper mostly. But we ‘Gang of Four’ are playing it right now, so I’m playing it, sort of. Sure wish I could earn money in RL as fast as I can in Eve!
City of Heroes/Villians: Doing a lot of this still. We’re playing it nearly every night right now. Though our main drive is mostly to get invention salvage and the like on the Heroes side, and get Broulin and FullDark up in level on the Villian side. I’m still trying to figure out who I want to focus on most next. Running Fox on Virtue got to start the Faultline missions last night and took a ‘scanner mission’ that had a door asigned to it that was outside the defined boundries of the zone… It was in a ‘Arachnos Dig Site’ that I didn’t even know was there! It’s a underground place that roams about underground on the far side of the warwall a lot! It just might be one of the most dangerous area for a level 20 to be in the whole zone without being over beyond the damn. If Running Fox didn’t have invisibility, she would have had to fight lots and lots of yellow and orange achranos mobs just to get to the door to her mission. Yikes. And it took me an HOUR to FIND the door in the first place as I had no clue how to get to it. At least no clue other than Zafel mentioning to me about when she got one, and how it turned out to be gotten to through a ‘crevice’ in the ground near the NE (or was it NW) corner of the zone. Also, soloing a Mental Illusions/Empathy controller takes work. Lots of it. Again, without the invisibility it would have been nearly impossible.
I am really not sure where I am going with my MMO playing. Likely I am going to be drifting a LOT with it right now. I don’t have any direct goals like I had before. When I had level 50 to shoot for, it made things different. Now, other than the Faultline missions and all the task forces (heroes) and strike forces (villians), theres not that much content I haven’t seen.
I really do want to try out those TF/SFs… but many of them take more characters (5 or more) than we can typically field at a single time, and especially in the amounts of time ‘locked into’ the TF/SF storyarcs. It’s more of something that is going to require PUG (Pick Up Group) Play. And that is not something I have done a lot with. I’m going to have to think about it, and I am a little worried about Mhari feeling left out when I go off and do things like that.
Anyways, that’s enough rambling on that subject.
I should have something else to post about tonight after work. But I want to save it until then.
21 days to vacation. 28 days to wedding!!!
Off to work…
