MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone...
We finally have INTERWEBZ... I missed the Internet... oh my lord how I missed my Internet. While I can access most things on my blackberry, I found my computer felt dead with out the web!
Things have been a blur here.
As far as personal news, I got married this week :) And yes its fabulous!
We're in our new place and almost unpacked. Things are beginning to come together on the personal front.
On the gaming front. Now that we have Internet back, I have been able to spend a few hours here and there in DDO. Fesivult is upon us, and I can never resist going and collecting cakes and such and hoarding them to use over the next year.
I have also had a chance to run all of the new upper level content. I have words to say to whomever thought it was a good idea to put puzzles as a major component of the new quests. As someone who find them tedious and boring, I am always thankful when there is someone in the group who knows how to do the bloody things...
I know there was no new raid with this mod, so I was kinda interested to see what the new 6 man content at the end of the chain was going to look like. Basically, they made a 6 man raid in my opinion. I guess that was supposed to make it harder?
In other words, I was unimpressed. The grind to get the stones to even enter the new content was beyond annoying. I hate grinds. When they made us have to go get all those relics for gianthold, I would buy them off of whomever had them. I just couldn't see re-running the content 12 million times.
So while I enjoyed running with the hubby and friends and getting to see it all for the first time, I found the new mechanics Turbine is employing to stretch out the content a little insulting.
I love DDO... give me something worth playing again.
Since the hubby is in a DDO mood its what I am playing right now If I had my way, I would be in AOC or LOTRO.
It's one of the things I am finding I have to balance with another gamer in the house. We play together. We play in the same room. We want to spend as much time together as we can. This means we have to compromise on what we play and when. I am not sure how it is all going to work out, but its an interesting adventure.
I am glad I married a gamer!!!
So everyone have a super fabulous Christmas. I hope Santa brings you all your gaming dreams and wishes under the tree, and I will see ya'll in the New Year!
