Oh hi there!
What? Oh yes, I know there's been nothing new 'round here for a few days.
You see, sometimes I get a bit distracted…especially by new games. But not just by any ol' new game – good new games. Unlike Sideshow, I don't really suffer from game ADD. Instead, I tend to get hyperfocused on one thing at a time. That's why my playtime may seem to be monopolized by one particular game for a stretch of time then shift to another. After the newness wears off, I tend to fall back into a more “normal” multi-game rotation of sorts.
Unfortunately, this hyperfocus can derail other projects I have going. For example, this past week I've fallen (farther) behind (than usual) on reading other blogs as well as posting. But hey, we all need mini-breaks here and there, am I right?
At any rate, I thought I'd give a bit of an update as to what's going on in my virtual world(s). I don't usually write update type of posts, but what the hell… when have I ever followed the rules before?
Syrana is still level 80. Amazing, I know.
Alynedarra is still there as well. Not many of my alts have seen much love lately. Syrana is diligently working on Loremaster and the Seeker. Kalimdor quests are what I'm focusing on right now, and that's going pretty well. I still have around 140ish more quests before I move on to the Eastern Kingdoms.
Sure, I still need to finish off Outland and Northrend, but I figure those areas will be less affected by the impending Cataclysm. And trust me, I don't want any sort of earth shattering destruction to stand between me and those achievements.
Oh wait, I haven't played that since the 2nd month after it went live.
Moving on then…
Nataliah, my templar, is still a baby at level 10. I honestly haven't played a lot recently because of the Loremaster focus. But, we've popped on here and there to do some questing, gathering, and crafting.
Of course I logged on to check out my veteran rewards though!
I think Nataliah will be getting some extra love very soon, because Sideshow is going to be distracted by a plethora of console games. I don't want Syrana to get too far ahead of him, so I'll be a good wife…for now.
Honestly, I haven't played my sims in a few months. I almost couldn't believe how long it's been! I'm trying to get the Sims Saturday Legacy posts caught up to where I am in game. I still have a-ways to go before that happens. Of course, this is due to that hyperfocus I mentioned earlier. When Sims 3 came out, I played it A LOT before slowing it down and deciding to chronicle the stories.
Dragon Age: Origins
This is where my focus has been for the past week. Excellent game. Excellent story. And… well, this is going to have it's own post soon enough so I'll just stop there.
What about you? Are you feeling the weight of multi-game madness right now? Anything you are looking forward to coming out (or just came out)?
