I added to my GOG.com library as I picked up a few titles on sale: Wizardry 6&7 and Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition. Seriously, Deus Ex for $2 — and it came with the full soundtrack, which I’m discovering is a pretty awesome OST.
I’m making great headway on finishing up my virtue deeds for Moria on my Lore-master in LOTRO. A few more and I’ll be done with there for good. I must admit that my kin is a strong motivation for logging in every day, as they’re very friendly and chatty. It makes riding through the Foundations of Stone a light-hearted experience.
I had intentions of giving RIFT a serious try last night. I created a new mage and ran her through the streamlined tutorial, but then when I tried to log on to my other characters to transfer funds and the like, the game kept hanging on the loading screen. I don’t know what that was about, but I got frustrated and logged out since it was getting late.
So instead I moved on to another Trion Worlds title: Trove. The extreme alpha-ness of this game keeps me from logging in, but I can already see the potential for some serious fun here. Already my character has pets and some outfit options, and I just ran around checking out what others have done with their cornerstones. The Knight is a pretty boring class, so I can’t wait until they bring in the next one (Gunslinger), but he was pretty happy to find a player-designed sword during his adventures. I never did find a place to plant a cornerstone of my own, but I also haven’t accumulated a lot of building materials yet either.
All in all, not a bad day.
