My truck is back in the shop, I just failed an exam I drove three hours to take, and my Twitter account was hacked within the last hour, sending around 100 spam DMs to random people about expensive sunglasses. How is your weekend starting off?
Since Elder Scrolls Online just received a 20gb update on PS4 for the new player housing feature, I’ve mainly been playing Neverwinter. That may sound weird, but PSN was having issues (because of course it fucking was) and it took me nearly three days to download the thing.
My Control Wizard is sitting comfortably at level 42, having joined a rather friendly guild of casual players. I just finished off Ebon Downs and should be heading toward the snowy werewolf-infested land of Vellosk here shortly. This area ran like garbage on Xbox at launch, so here’s hoping it fares a little better on PS4 two years later.
My girlfriend and I were looking for something to play together to escape our everyday stresses, so we resubbed to World of Warcraft and started leveling new characters. I deleted my level 100 Human Rogue, since I hated the way he looked. I created another Rogue in his place, but went with a female Night Elf this time.
We played around a bit last night, leveling in Westfall and two-manning the Deadmines dungeon. Hopefully we’ll get back to that a little more tonight after homework.
There’s just something about MMOs that keeps me coming back when life gets a little too hectic. I think it’s the familiarity, the almost comfort food feeling of mindlessly leveling, crafting, and exploring a world I’ve invested a considerable amount of time in. It’s nice.
It’s been a busy, busy week, so that’ll about do it for me. What about you folks? What are you getting in to this weekend?
