I didn’t do much gaming over the long holiday weekend. With my vacation time coming to an end, I spent most of the time offline with my family and friends. I logged into Warhammer Online (WAR) a few times for very short playing stints. As has been said thousands of times already on the internet, WAR’s ability to let you play short sessions while accomplishing a lot, is one of its saving graces. Even when it means doing it alone, it’s still do-able and often times fun.
I listened to all of my favorite podcasts which have whittled down to fewer than previous years. Several of my former favorites have gone the way of the, “podcast fade” with no information or messages to their listeners about when or if they are ever going to return. *Sigh* This basically gets me down to less than a half dozen podcasts I listen to each week, two of which are Harry Potter related. Boo-hiss to the faders – I miss your podcasts because they were very entertaining. I’m sorry that real life or whatever came up has stopped your shows. *sniff*
I’ve been giving some serious thought into re-subscribing to EVE Online. You know the one – the game that some of us love but rarely leave the ship’s hanger when playing. Yeah, that game. I’ve heard from a few players that ambulation (in-game avatars) isn’t coming until late 2009. Drat and double-drat, that’s a long time away. When I subscribed in the past, I played mostly the PVE side of the game. My last go ‘round reeled me into the “How horribly wrong PVP can go with amateurs,” side. It was nothing if not exciting.
