mellicious: pink manicure (WoW - chicken)

(Sorry, another game-related entry!)

Columbine got his SWTOR early-access, and I haven't, yet - which is not a surprise, but I'm sort of bored with Rift and so I'm here writing an entry instead. I enjoy playing when he's around, but when he's not, well, I get interested some days and other days, not so much.

I seem to do better at getting interested in Glitch, at least if I don't overdo it. Glitch doesn't have quests like other games do - well, it has quests but they're all gathering and crafting rather than killing things, and there aren't many of them. They added a new achievement recently, which is to find pieces of your DNA, which can be almost anywhere - on 11 random streets throughout the world, and it's a pretty big world and constantly gets bigger. So that's a challenge, and I've been working on that off and on. (If you've played Glitch but not lately: the DNA thing is almost exactly like the ghost quest. The DNA pieces are easier to see than the ghosts but tend to be in rather inaccessible places. And there's a humming sound that alerts you that you're on the right street, which helps an awful lot!)

There are also some new skills, one of which requires herbs that I don't have, and which are going for a ridiculous amount of money in the auction house since everybody else just got the same new skill too. So I decided rather than do that, I would grow my own herbs - but that requires moving again, because you can only grow herbs in certain places. I like my house that I have now pretty well but eh, I'm not that attached to it. So I'm working on using up and/or getting rid of enough stuff that I can move without just giving up too much of it. I don't want to do that! - although one way I'm getting rid of some stuff is by playing santa and leaving bags of stuff around. If I'm going to give stuff away, I'd rather put it in random places where somebody who actually needs it get a shot at it, than give it to whoever buys my house - which is by definition somebody who has some currants to blow! (It's funny how quick game money starts feeling like something almost real. It happens to me in every game I've ever played.)

Hopefully I'll have Star Wars by this weekend, because I don't have to work, for once, so it'd be a good time. After Christmas we go on holiday hours and I'm working nearly every day that week.

Did you know that the font in your entries is enormous? At least it is in my friends list... it comes up really big and bold!

It's not enormous for me, but I have noticed that it comes up in a totally different font from everything else, and I have wondered why.

It's normal-sized for me.

On the house front, I don't know if you've been in the forums, but there's some new thing rolling out (sometime vague but maybe soon?) where people will be able to customize houses. Since I like my house's location, I'm holding off on moving until I see how that's going to work - I'm hoping maybe the new system will let me have both plant and herb crops in the same house.

As far as the font, I keep goofing around with it, and that started because it was coming up abnormally small before. I could barely read it even with my damn bifocals on. Then it went to the other extreme and became gigantic, so I keep messing with it, trying to hit the happy medium of readable but not ridiculously huge. Obviously I'm not there yet, or not for everybody, anyway.

I haven't read the forums lately, but I did actually hear something about customizable houses at some point. I just didn't know that it might be something that might happen in the immediate future. Hmm.

Y'know, I may be sorry, because Uppma Uplands is a really terrific location, but I'm far enough into the winnowing-down process that I'm sort of ready to move. I'm not quite there yet, but unless they manage to roll out this customization thing in the next couple of days before I get completely ready to go, I'm probably just moving. (Or unless I get my SWTOR early-access invite and get so sidetracked I don't get around to it!)

But thank you for telling me, just the same - this way I'm making an informed decision!

Oh, I would love to be able to plant herbs and crops -- the herb garden areas are a nightmare.
