To hell and back.
Last week (or is it two weeks already?) the real-money Auction House launched on Diablo III. A friend of mine (you know who you are!) already sold his first item for around € 65. I haven’t heard from him since, I’m guessing he’s a euro millionaire by now. No, the truth is, I haven’t logged in since. I saw what Diablo III has to offer, and it was a little broken on Inferno difficulty. But most of all I just couldn’t be arsed to go through those 4 acts again. I tried starting a new toon but gave up on that soon after. So I had alot of fun with Diablo III while it lasted but once you’ve hit the max level there are like two options:
– Reroll with another class
– Continue with your current class and enter the ‘endgame’.
Neither of those seemed particularly interesting to me, and I think I’ll just get back to Diablo after a few patches when classes and difficulty levels are balanced.
So, released from Diablo’s evil grasp I could focus on things that mattered again. I finished my story which I’m about to submit later today. Even though dutch is my mother tongue, it was a lot harder for me to write in dutch than it is in English. Even now that it is ‘finished’ I feel like there’s a few flaws which I can’t seem to fix.
Civilization V: Gods & Kings
Yesterday the first Civilization V expansion pack was released. I bought the Civilization V GOTY edition on Steam last year and I quite liked the concept of the game. Therefore I was anxious to see this expansion pack which adds ‘religion’ to the game. I haven’t tried it yet but I promise that I will soon and I’ll let you know what I think about it!
Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War II
Another game I had bought on Steam during their christmas sales was Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War II. I had started playing it, but I bought so many games during that sellout that I couldn’t find the time to play any of them for more than a few hours. Warhammer stood out to me but there was no time to play! I played a few games last week and I had alot of fun. It’s some kind of RTS mixed with RPG elements. You get a few heroes, each with their combat unit and play with them through various missions in deep space. You find items for all your squadrons, your heroes gain levels and you can spend skill points just like you would in an RPG. I would recommend this game to any fan of RPG & RTS games.
Game of Thrones
In the little time I had left I found a little room to read! Only a few pages per day but I’m getting there! I’m halfway now and hope to finish it next month! I think it goes so slow because I’ve seen the series on tv and I already know what’s going to happen. I didn’t make the mistake of watching the second season so I’m quite anxious to start the second book!
Last but not least, a new season (S5) of True Blood has started a few weeks ago, and I’m hoping to see it real soon!
Oh before I forget: Help my girlfriend out and vote for her photo in the ‘Goed Gezien’ category. She’ll be forever grateful 😉
That’s all folks!
