My dirty little secret is about to go public

  1. PT, this is great! Sounds like a just a good hobby to me. Do you and your son still play together?

    I’ll be off for a bit, you have fun!
    Drat, I meant to mention that. My son got me hooked and then he got absorbed in his work, got married, etc., and hasn’t had time to play since. Well, actually, he’s got the giant screen TV, the Playstation, the Xbox, the TiVO, etc.

    Enjoy your time off! 🙂

  2. Wow, you are a secret gamer. I can relate – but I stay away from stuff like that, I already have enough of an addictive personality – I’d never get anything done if I started playing the games. Still, I’ve been curious about them. They have a certain appeal.
    Yep, yep. Very addictive. My rule is I can’t even log on unless I have at least two hours to play. Isn’t that pathetic? And I do things like promise myself I can play AFTER I do the dishes, or AFTER I clean the bathroom, etc. Maybe I’ll get lucky (?) and NOT like Warhammer.

  3. A secret gamer? I promise not to tell. 🙂 Every play WoW? It’s about the only MMORPG I’ve found that I liked for any length of time.
    Started WoW during its beta stress test and played intensely till about 6 months ago. I was sort of burning out on the end game, as were most of the people I played with. Plus I got my first laptop about then and got really spoiled being able to blog while sprawled on the couch watching TV. I still have my WoW account, with the maximum number of characters on it, naturally.

  4. I was a gamer for a while, too. Only I played Asheron’s Call. If I recall correctly, that was EQ’s big rival at the time.
    I never played AC, although it seems like most of the rest of the world did. 🙂

  5. I never really got into games or gaming – hell, I can’t even get past level 1 on the original Sonic!

    I put that down to not being able to throw a ball in a straight line, but it could be that I am just rubbish at them.

    I’m a geek, by the way. 🙂
    MMORPGs are not as skill-oriented as a lot of other games. You can do your own thing at your own pace, for the most part. Where I fail miserably is a one-on-one fight with some teenage player; my reaction time is much slower.

    Geeks are at the top of my list of BPOEs, in case you couldn’t tell. I never met a geek I didn’t like. 🙂

  6. Hey 30,
    Have you been taken prisoner and being held in a dungeon somewhere? I haven’t seen you in days. LOL. Is there a ransom or something? I have some recyclables I can turn in. Will that help? 😉
    Yep, there’s a ransom. I’m worth billions, you know. 😉 (Don’t I wish!) It’s scary how fast a few days can slip by with no post, even when it seems like you’ve been glued to the computer.

    Pssst … It was nice to be missed!

... and that's my two cents
