Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the blogosphere, I produce a new article! I know, I am infamous for months-long breaks between spurts of articles, but I am actually not at that point just yet. The last 2 weeks have, however, been busier than heck. We've have Lor's birthday, 2 road trips (including a rain-soaked one in my brother's open-sided Jeep), household consolidation, and some major gaming. Very little time to write. Accordingly, I will bring everyone up to date.
My Sunless Sea series is probably over, due to a couple factors. First, my poor record keeping - I ran an hour long session, took lots of notes and screenshots, then left the PC unsupervised. As these things go, my anti-virus software auto-updated and restarted my computer overnight, leaving me with 10 screenshots and no notes. I could probably try to rebuild my explorations from memory, but my memory is an ongoing issue, and the Sunless Sea articles are drawing something like 4 hits each any time any of the 3 of them has been posted. This is in comparison to 30-ish (or better) views for articles on pretty much any other subject. While my blog is mostly about whatever I feel like writing about, documentation of a game experience is kinda pointless if no one else is interested. So, adios, Sunless Sea play-by-play.
The latest obsession on my shiny new desktop is Mechwarrior Online. Since I now have a machine that can run it, I have spent the last weekend doing match after match, trying out all the starter mechs. I have now reached my first 25 matches and have earned a cadet bonus of over 9 million "C-Bills", the in-game currency, more than enough to buy a mech or two of my own. I will probably make my selection later today. I may even join a clan/guild for the game, I enjoy it so much.
As usual, the majority of gaming time has been spent on Wizard 101. Our main characters are in their 60s, and carving their way through the world of Celestia, but slowly due to recurring alt-itis. My Necromancer is currently receiving more love from me than any other character, and he has just hit level 42, putting him only 20-ish levels behind my Life caster (healer) main character. The damage generated by our duo of Necro and Fire Mage is so much fun to watch that I just can't help myself, so more and more time is being funneled away from our mains to these two characters.
More stuff coming soon!
