Hi! We’re still here, though mostly I’m still here. Syrana hasn’t really had much time to game, especially with the other blog and everything.
I still game pretty often. I’m still enjoying WoW casually, like usual. I hit 85 with one character, my Dwarf Hunter. I know! Sideshow didn’t hit it first. Blasphemy! I’m working on it. I just play Alliance more because I have more close friends/family that play on that side. I don’t mind playing Horde, but it’s not the same without Syrana so I get bored quicker. Plus, I know no one in that guild anymore.
I haven’t played a ton of Xbox 360 stuff recently and even if I wanted to play anything on my PS3, I couldn’t. (*facepalm*)
I did try the Rift beta, but only for a few days. I was not sucked into the hype like a lot of other people. I mean, it was fun and all, but nothing that would make me go out and buy another game and sign up for another subscription. I’ve done that way too many times already and have been burned on it. (*cough*Warhammer*cough*Age of Conan*cough*Aion) So, I’ve stopped doing that. WoW is fine for me, especially since I play casually and I like familiarity. Plus, playing with a few friends and family is enough for me.
Other than that, I really haven’t bought many games lately, which is good for my wallet. The last games I bought were the GTA Pack on Steam for $7.50. So, I got GTA, GTA 2, GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas. Not a bad deal. The last full/new game I bought was The Sims Medieval, which isn’t bad. It’s basically the Sims, but with less “living” to worry about and a lot more RPG elements. It’s done very well. I also dabble at bit in Minecraft here and there creating weird things and exploring. It’s a good relaxing game, except at night when the Creepers are after me.
