I thought I’d give an update on my gaming and an overview of my play-style.
Sideshow is currently at 80 and has been there for many months now. In all honesty, he’s probably as far as he needs to be. He has a few Naxx pieces, some PvP pieces, etc. I have no interest in getting him fully top-tier geared. That’s not how I play. I drop in to enjoy my free time with whatever I feel like doing at the time. I usually do a few dailies, hit up a few battlegrounds, and maybe run some stuff with guildies. I may start PuGing more when the dungeon changes come out in 3.3. It’s not the act of raiding that I don’t enjoy.
I enjoy raiding with friends, but the act of scheduling a weekly time to play a game never sits well with me. I game when I have free time. Everything else usually trumps that. When I start to schedule time to play, then I start to lose interest. It’s not an active thing I’m doing. My brain just starts to lose interest in it. I’ve accepted the fact that I probably won’t raid much, so it doesn’t bother me. Though, it also probably goes along with my gaming-style in general.
The plus side to that is that I now (after almost 4 years of playing WoW) have more than one max-level character. My 2nd character created back in 2006 has finally hit max-level. I was always a few months behind with him. He’s my dwarf hunter, Gertbee, who started on Eitrigg and who is now on Gilneas in <I Blame Syrana>. Brigywn would be so proud!
Other than that, I’ve been meddling in other games. My play-style is best described as a “short-attention span” style. Don’t confuse that with ADD. I really get into my games, but I can burnout quickly and jump to another one. I do this a lot and usually come back to games later on. I rarely beat games on my first run. Due to this, I’ve got back into GTA IV, but that is also due to the new episodic release, The Ballad of Gay Tony. I’m also playing Borderlands (PC), Brutal Legend (360), and Aion (PC).
I dread the next few months, though. I have to deal with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Assassin’s Creed 2, Bioshock 2, Mass Effect 2 (I see a pattern here), and now I like what I’m seeing with Dragon Age: Origins (and I love BioWare.) Not to mention wanting to try Torchlight.
I can haz monies? I also blame Syrana.
