I went back and played Guild Wars 2 again this weekend after around a 6 month hiatus. I just LOVE the fact that I can go back and play without it costing me anything. I had forgotten how pretty the game world was and how much I really enjoyed the ‘vistas’ they put into the game. Because I was a bit uncertain(flat out couldn’t remember) how to play my level 80 characters, and the game was throwing all sorts of new information and requests at me about those guys I decided to just run around on a level 12 character.
While doing the vistas in the Human starting area ‘Queensdale’ I took some screenshots during the vista camera pan. I was surprised to find out that dropbox was saving them for me, so I shared them on Google+. The response on G+ was a bit intimidating. I’ve never had so many people comment on one of my posts or give me so many ‘+’ ones.
Thank you guys, I think I’ll continue to take screenshots of the various vista’s I hit in game.
I also decided to give Arenanet some cash for their ongoing support of the game. I bought $10 worth of ‘gems’ and used those to purchase a new character slot. I’m now running around the icy homeland of the Nords on a new Necromancer.
I’ve had SEVERAL of the people I play fantasy football with basically leave my social network(changing jobs/retirement etc). They aren’t around to talk fantasy football face to face anymore. With that major change, and with all the injuries my various fantasy teams have suffered, I’m just not enjoying watching the pro games or keeping up with the individual players.
Not feeling it.
I need to make this list every time Steam has one of it’s huge sales:
- Borderlands 2 (Got all the DLC during the Steam sale!)
- Skyrim (Steam sale!)
- Civ 5
Games that I currently own and haven’t finished but I want to(eventually):[May have been purchased during previous steam sales]
- Batman: Arkham City GOTY
- Fallout 3 – GOTY
- Fallout: New Vegas
- Torchlight 2
- Witcher 2
Games I know I’ll never go back and finish and regret that I didn’t finish:
- BioShock 2
- Deus Ex: Human Revolution
- Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine
Games I didn’t dislike but didn’t like enough to complete:
- Overlord II
- Overlord Raising Hell
- Spellforce 2: Gold edition
Games I just didn’t like all that much so never finished:
And don’t forget Games that basically never end:
- Blood Bowl: Chaos Edition
- Dota 2
- Marvel Heroes (MMO)
- Team Fortress 2
And the sad part is I’m sure I’m missing several games I could add to this list.
If someone bought this for me…I think I’d have to ‘do things’ for them.
