Ok.. Explain the title? There are too many games.. I have too little time… And I STAY UP TOO FREAKING LATE in order to TRY to play more of them. There you go.. It’s just amazing. I’ve been spending most of the time I haven’t been on raiding (or farming Frost Lotus.. grumble grumble), playing Bioshock 2. I love this game. I’m playing it on the PC and get annoyed at a few of the design decisions made for it, but all in all I am loving every minute of it. I think I am getting close to the end of the story and will be sad when it is over. I hope they, somehow, have DLC for it. I haven’t tried the multiplayer yet, but if you have it for the PC and want to give it a whirl, let me know!
But yes, I am still playing WoW. I’m playing wow to much in fact. As usual. After transferring my Warlock back to my main account and back to my main server, I actually logged in an played her a bit. I used the random dungeon tool and she got into an Underbog run. Went pretty well. I remember wiping even on the normal Underbog back in the day… She didn’t do too shabby (who am I kidding). Remember when I said that mages had too many buttons.. I was wrong.. WARLOCKs have WAY too many buttons.. Anyway..
We’ve also been raiding as well. We still haven’t gotten any of the previously try limited bosses down in ICC. We’ve been working on it, but mainly doing the “lesser” bosses to gear up for the others. We also spent a couple nights wiping on Yogg+1.. I think it is more knowledge and practice that we need rather than gear, etc.
That’s about all that’s going on with me. Remember Episode 12 of Polygamerous will be recording tonight at 8pm PST. Head over to the website for more information. If you can think of anything interesting we can talk about in the show you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . Have a good one!
It was a pretty busy day, yesterday. New content was released including a new boss in VoA and a new wing, and the final encounter with the Lich King, in ICC. No, we didn’t get to see the Lich King.. But we did check out the new VoA boss. Not too shabby. Pretty easy fight, for us at least.. You have to kill little frozen balls that attack people in the raid. He also does some area wide freeze the floor and cause damage. But, in general, it’s just another tank and spank. You get 2 Emblems of Frost from the kill and I actually picked up a new PvP belt that was better (in most ways) than the PvE belt I was still wearing. I had just been eyeing the new belts in the Emblem of Frost store since my belt was one of my lowest level pieces of gear. So, I laughed when I got the PvP one which was an upgrade.
Next, we moved on to the main event for the evening, ICC10. We had no problems with the first wing, as usual. I got ANOTHER belt from one of these bosses and it turned out to be even BETTER than the PvP one I got.. Now I just have to buckle and gem it. When we got up to the ramparts where you pick up the ship we got a surprise. Some dude with a quest!! The quest we got was do kill this decaying frost giant on the other end of the ramparts.
We wandered over there and accidentally pulled him AND the group that was wandering by him at the time. After that wipe (yes, this guys is actually pretty difficult), we regrouped but while the RL was screaming at ppl to back up, we pulled him again , even before buffs. After running back in from THAT wipe, we finally got the strategy down and got HIM down too. One of the biggest things is that if you get the plague you need to go to someone who hasn’t recently had it supposedly. All in all, it was a pretty fun fight once you got the hang of it and you get 5 Emblems of Frost and a decent amount of gold for turning in the quest.
Otherwise we did pretty decently on Festergut (I don’t remember if we one shot or two shot him) and while RotFace took a few more tries, we got him down eventually. We took a couple shots at Putricide, but ended up calling it since people had to leave.
Tonight we might get a different weekly ICC quest since we’re going in 25 man instead of 10.. I say “might” because we might just get the same one again. Other than that, I am still playing Mass Effect 2 and the new podcast, Polygamerous is going awesome. We just pushed out our 10th episode and it’s a doozy!
Spent Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday raiding this week. Tues and Thurs were the same ICC10. We spent all of last night (Thurs) wiping to Putricide. We had 1 more try left for the week and then we got respawns, so we quit. Wednesday was the 25man run. We did alright, but couldn’t get Festergut.
I’ve also been working more on my Mage. He is really moving along. I picked up the Triumph badge shoulders for him (replacing the heirloom ones.. lol), but still have a bunch of blues to replace. I’m getting close to enough Frost emblems to get something there too. Maybe I can convince some peeps to bring me to the weekly raid. That influx of Emblems would be great!
Of course, my non-raiding time in WoW might be slightly curtailed for the near future since I picked up Mass Effect 2 for the 360 and been playing that too. I’ve kinda put the Paladin on hold for right now to concentrate on only one up-and-coming toon at a time. I am having a lot of fun with the mage (I think I have decided I am DPS.. I can do healing and I “might” be able to do tanking, but at heart I am a DPSer. It’s just what I like to do best.
Star Trek Online also starts up today for the preorder folk (I’m one of em), but I might wait until Tuesday (real release) to start since I still have ME2 and other things to play. I don’t know how long I’ll be playing STO, but I’ll give it a shot.. At least get up to the part where everyone says it gets “good”. I also dug into Runes of Mana another MMO somewhat like WoW. They really went after much of the look and feel of WoW including the ability to use Addons. I am enjoying it so far though. If anyone else plays, I don’t know how friends work and realms, etc, but we can try to find each other I suppose..
That’s it for today. Everyone have a good weekend and don’t forget we are recording Twisted Nether LIVE tonight (1/29/2010) at 8pm PST at our UStream Page.
