Bit overwhelmed by the response

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.

Not enjoying fantasy football

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.

Pax East 2013 Statuary

I present my photo’s of Pax East 2013’s Statuary in no particular order:



Had a blast at Pax East 2013 and the photo’s never do it justice because I spend so much of my time DOING things instead of taking photo’s of the things I’m doing. Such is life.

If you get the chance, and you enjoy any sort of gaming, I really suggest you check out one of the many Pax out there. Worth it.  And you CAN do everything(except the panels/discussions) in one day if you stay focused.

So I went to Pax East again this year


Though I had a 3 day pass I really only spent one day at Pax. I spent the rest doing EXACTLY what I wanted. Hanging out with my friends, playing games, drinking beer, eating out(and in!) and generally just enjoying spending time with people I really enjoy spending time with.

Thanks again for having me Chris and Rachel!

Now for the photos:


I’ll make a separate post about all the statues/models used at Pax East 2013. I’m always blown away by the work the game manufacturers put into their booths and their statues always impress.
