Not a whole lot going on lately but I’m going to fill a page with drivel anyway.
Oh, I did start watching The Glades. Good show. Kind of reminds me of a cross between House and CSI, though in Florida. Lead is kind of like House but the content is solving homicides. Lots of homicide shows; Castle, The Mentalist and now The Glades. I don’t really watch CSI (in it’s various flavors) or some of the other shows like Criminal Minds or Law and Order.
I’m almost all out of books to read. I devoured the last Feist book in a couple of days. I found it pretty short and not nearly as good as his usual ones. I suspect people who put Feist down once the story shifted away from Pug might like it since he’s focusing a little more on that area. I have a Glen Cook book on pre-order (it’s an old book just released again) which will finish off a sci-fi trilogy (Starfisher trilogy). Until then, I’m reading through a related book; Passage at Arms which takes place in that sort of time frame. It’s interesting.
I haven’t done much in WoW lately. Really, nothing. I don’t think I’ve even logged in for a week. I’m going to try to go to this Ulduar raid Twisted Serenity has planned since I haven’t actually killed the General, Yogg-Saron or Alganon. Or even seen them really – well, I saw Alganon though we didn’t beat him. I think I mentioned I canceled the LittleBigOgre’s WoW account. I think he played it maybe three or four times. He had been asking about playing City of Heroes more and more. This is the first time I’ve seen him actually remember to ask about playing something consistently for several months.
So I bought him the Architect Edition and set up him to play it. He’s been playing it a lot more than he was playing WoW. Though he keeps making new heroes and barely plays them. I was surprised to see he’s got about four characters that use the Assault Rifles power set. “But this guy looks different and uses this different gun!” Gotta love kids.
I caved yesterday and re-enabled my account so I could play along side him for a bit. He was really happy about that. Even the LittleLittleOgre hangs out and watches. If we play tonight, I think I’ll let him push some buttons and stuff (LBO will probably protest to that).
Sibling rivalry is a funny thing. LBO has moments he claims to hate LLO and other times they’re playing together like good friends. LBO will convince LLO to get things that LBO likes instead of what LLO likes – so we’re watching that. LBO will also want to buy things for LLO that LBO wants. Meanwhile, LLO is willing to sacrifice something he wants to get LBO something and when TheWife was out shopping for stuff for LLO with LLO, LLO wanted to buy stuff for LBO. He loves his big brother so much, it’s sickeningly sweet.
I joined an Agency in Global Agenda, it’s HellsGamers. Seems like a good bunch though they’re a gaming group that spans a ton of FPS type games. Vent is about what you’d expect from a bunch of teens to 20 year olds. UFTimmy made me do it. Actually, he knew some people from there and I’d rather go with people that someone I know, knows than throw myself out to the basement-dwelling and unwashed masses. I mucked around with a group on Tuesday, but haven’t been on much since. Maybe later tonight.
UFTimmy is stealing my class.
I decided I wasn’t happy with the way the Recon played after 30 so I flailed around, staying away from Robotics because that was his thing, until I found that I liked the Assault class. After several missions of standing on the point (YES! I’m an Assault that will actually try to take the point!) and mowing down enemies, it was just too much fun. I tried Medic a bit, but it’s not fun to play in PVP since everyone targets you and you’re pretty squishy… even with mods and trying to line the tank up between you and the shooters. Recons get you. heh.
He says he is going to go Assault because everyone else is playing Robotics.
So everyone who reads this and plays GA, go Assault! Maybe that’ll drive him back to Robotics.
