LOTRO: I’ll write up a longer post later on about the continuing adventures through Update 13. It definitely feels like a much smaller edition so I’m trying hard not to zoom through it too quickly. If nothing else, it reminded me how much I dislike the visuals of Isengard and am very glad I’m leaving that place behind forever.
Guild Wars 2: Nothing super-special here, just logging in to do dailies. Dailies definitely seem to take a lot longer after the feature pack drop, mostly due to a smaller selection of options. Some days I can breeze through them, but I’ve had at least two days where it’s taken me a good hour or more to wrap them up. My Mesmer is level 41 and more or less doing well. I haven’t really figured out a build with her yet, but since I won’t even hit the second tier of traits until 60, I have plenty of time to figure it out. Hilariously enough, I’ve yet to leave the starting zones (I’m on the last one, the Sylvari zone).
The Wolf Among Us: I took an hour and a half to do the third episode, The Crooked Mile. I really lament how short these episodes are, especially since there are no puzzles to slow down the rapid pace through the story. It was definitely interesting and kept the twists and turns of the plot coming. I also decided I must grab this soundtrack if it’s available.
Diablo 3: This actually sucked up quite a bit of my time. Maybe I’m just in the mood lately for mindless action-RPGing, but dang if it wasn’t a fun couple of sessions. After poking around a bit on a Monk, I rerolled a new Witch Doctor because throwing spiders on things is far too awesome to ignore. I even joined a guild (er, clan) and appreciated the more social aspect of the game that’s arisen since the expansion. Speaking of, I’m debating getting Reaper of Souls, but I think I’ll wait to see if I stick this out through the end of the storyline. Other than the Crusader class, I don’t think the lack of the expansion is limiting my play experience at all.
