Next week will begin the Christmas holiday break for me, and while work never completely stops, it’ll at least slow down. I’m going to spend time with my family, both home and away, and use some of this newly freed time to get in some gaming.
For Bio Break, I’ve actually pre-written several end of the year lists and scheduled them for the remainder of the month, so look to those starting on Monday. We’ve also got a new Battle Bards coming at you for Christmas Eve, although it’s probably not the topic you’d expect.
So what will I be playing over the break? My dance card is really full right now:
- Neverwinter — The holiday event just started and I really want to earn one of those new companions for my cleric. Big priority here, as long as it’s somewhat doable. I also would like to take more time to just level my cleric, who is only 19.
- The Secret World — More holiday festivities, although these involve Christmas devils because, well, The Secret World. I might actually get some time for my alt as well.
- Lord of the Rings Online — Nothing special here, just lots of Helm’s Deep questing. I still have a ways to go, and once I finish with the expansion I think most of 2014 will be devoted to giving my Lore-master attention.
- Marvel Heroes — I bought Squirrel Girl because HOW COULD I NOT. I’ve been very sporadically playing this, just for kicks.
- The Walking Dead Season 2 — Just got this on my iPad and am saving it for a special night. Can’t wait to dive right back into this depressing storyline!
- WildStar — I’ve played enough of the beta to know that I’m really smitten with this game and will talk more about it when the full NDA drops. I’m trying not to spoil myself too much, but have a few things I need to do for an article I’m working on.
