Ramping Up




Fishing with my little buddy. (Petamorph wand)


This week the invasions ramp up in WoW, and there is a new part of the story to do (kind of). Add in some updates from EQ2 such as the new level 95 heroic characters (get one free) and there is just so much to do right now! Oh, they are having a sort of invasion event in EQ2 as well, public quests are back!

Something Old, Something New, Seven Years Later

I think one of my favorite things about this blog, why I still blog, is that I always have things to look back on. Rarely do I go back to read an old post but often I look back at the pictures. Google search for images of games often pops up a lot of my own and it is always nice to think back on those images and then I may go read the post to think back on. Seeing when Dire, my son, my brothers or old friends were in the shots. It never fails to make me smile, sometimes it is sad as well, not playing with them in these games we used to play together all the time. I started this blog back in 2009, around this time of the year. So this will mark seven years for me blogging here. I am not nearly as dedicated as I was in the early years, each year I seem to get worse and worse about a schedule. But it is something special to me, something I am proud to have stuck with. So, thank you for reading, I do it for me, but also to share the games I play, thoughts and pictures with readers. I'm still here, saving massive amounts of screenshots to post, heh. Sometimes I have so many words in my head it is exasperating to try to get them all out. These posts are often just easier and faster for me to make sure to get a post up with.

Death, Demon Hunters, And Invasions!




video


Demon Hunters and invasions galore! The latest patch for WoW has been quite interesting. It has been nice to log in with some new stuff this week. I always am quick to criticize something I do not like and I like to also give praise to the things I really do appreciate. I have to say the polish is something we have to come to love about Blizzard and there is no lack of it in this update.

Changes




Tomorrow Demon Hunters arrive in WoW, as well as demon invasions. I am pretty happy to finally be able to try out the DH class, and it will be nice to collect some cosmetic gear during the event. It will give me something fresh to do, so I plan on trying to enjoy it all, not rush through it.

Sour Grapes






It seems next week we'll be seeing invasions for the next pre-patch in WoW, as well as being able to play Demon Hunters if you have pre-ordered. Class changes have already hit, in the Pre-pre-patch... So today I wanted to talk about that, my thoughts on the pace of the content and some thoughts on what else I have been playing.

Summer Is Heating Up



Things are starting to ramp up with many MMOs this summer. Plenty to do, lots of summertime events going on, or coming up soon. WoW is releasing the pre-expansion patch today, some of the fun stuff, more on that in a bit. EQ2 has a time limited event server up, with some interesting loot. Rift just released a patch with the summer event, as well as Trove having a birthday with login rewards. I think SWTOR has some stuff going on too, but at this point my plate is overflowing.

Riders of Icarus- First Impressions



Last week I tried out one of the newly 'released' games (open beta as of now) Riders of Icarus. It seems to be pretty decent of a game thus far. This isn't a review, merely throwing my thoughts out there on my impression of the game so far with some shiny pics.

An Unexpected Visit (SL)

I rarely, if ever, log into Second Life anymore. However, today Twiglet asked me to log in to see her land before she released it and sends all her things back to inventory. It is absolutely beautiful, the job she has done with decorating. I wanted to show off the gorgeous items that designers (other players) are able to create and how players with an eye for design can create some beautiful places within the game. It was really lovely, too lovely not to share. For some odd reason her avatar was blocked from viewing, lol, that's SL being SL for you... Sigh.

Eye Candy: Shameless Selfie Edition

Capturing shots as I travel across various worlds ;) Starting off with a shameless WoW selfie... I cannot wait for the Legion pre-patch to hit... Cosmetic rewards! That and I am down to like five bag slots on most of my characters. It cannot come soon enough. I am guessing around July 19th, from reading up. Let's hope it is that close.
