The First Day

Yesterday, I had no need to hit the word processor.

Admittedly, there've been days where I didn't before now, but they always had a crushing inevitability about them. I'd have to go and work some more tomorrow. I don't have that now. It's an... interesting feeling.

Spent yesterday wandering around. We had breakfast and a large cafetiere of Kenyan coffee at a place down the Mile, then walked the long way around Calton Hill (past The Regent) to Elm Row. Speaking of The Regent: I know I've not been there in a while, but when did they repaint it? More importantly, couldn't they have got someone with colour vision to repaint it? Turquise and black are colours for a wine bar, not a pub.

Anyway. After failing to find rain-worthy gear for next weekend, we again took the long way home through John Lewis. And... I caved. I have something to admit: I'm a LEGO fiend. Not just any, you understand. There's a range at present featuring anime-style Giant Robots™ and I'm a fourteen-carat sucker for that kind of thing. Now all I need is the space to put the bloody things. And maybe a videogame.

By the time we got in, I were too knackered to head right back out in the hopes of catching gominokouhai in the pub[0]. Which was a pity, as we have much to catch up on.

In somewhat random news: I cancelled my City of Heroes account. I'm just not one for level-grinding. In all my time of playing, I could never settle on the one character. My current roster has three sitting between L6 and L8 and one at L13. I just can't work up the impetus to play one character for a long period of time and actually see them level more than once an eternity—doubly so when it's just a slot rather than a new power. The shine wore off, and the few contacts I had have all buggered off or hit 50 by now. Even with veteran rewards, there's no point in being stuck in the early game forever.

Of course I'm going to keep playing Guild Wars: Nightfall, but that doesn't have any continuous fees. I'm also being tempted by KotOR (the original) and NWN2. Give up one addictive game and another comes to take it's place.

Nightfall is definitely the best of the three.

What's you're character called? Keep an eye out for Shepherd of Bacchus.

I have 36 heroes (my age; I plan to roll another on or soon after my birthday) and over 20 villains, in large part because of how slow a grind it becomes at the higher levels. (I don't team much, because I have a crap computer that can't really cope with the large numbers of mobs generated in a mission with more than about two people in.)

I just can't justify the expense for a bunch of 6-10s. The game doesn't really diversify until the mid-20s.

Ha. I threw money all over a new computer to play MMOs, and now I don't want to play them anymore. I feel like I should be playing Vanguard or EverQuest 2 just to work the thing.

But KotOR is a lot of fun, so far, when I feel the need for gaming.
