So it's obviously been a while since I lasted posted, but do I really need to apologize? I hate when people do that; apologize for not posting, that is. Especially when it happens all the time. Also, I promise my Alan Wake review WILL be out eventually. It's been so long since I've played it that I have to go back and work on it. Anyway, here's my newsletter on what's been going on with my life. I promise I'll get a real media post up soon!
~ Star Wars: The Old Republic: Of course this is always the biggest segment of my newsletters. Vulka (my Zabrak Sith Marauder) is now (around) level 38 and 1/2, and I'm one quest short of being rid of Taris. The idea of this and actually getting close to level 50 is exciting for me, but I'd much rather have it be my Bounty Hunter or my Imperial Agent. I've kinda grown tired of the lightsaber combat and using a blaster is a nice change of pace. Phobus (my main character, a level 50 human Sith Sorcerer) is slowly getting his gear through raiding and PvPing. I'm also almost finished datacron hunting; I only need the ones on Hoth and the Imperial Fleet, which is really challenging to get, actually. Tavot (my level 15 Chiss Bounty Hunter) is stuck at the very beginning of Balmorra because I'm waiting for a friend to catch up and play. I've kind of abandoned Axton (my level 14 Cyborg Operative) to work on Vulka, but once I get Vulka to 50, I'm definitely planning on getting him to be my next solo charcter. All of my other toons have nothing new to report, but I am working on my Legacy story, and it's really awesome. Axton Dunamos is my main charcter in my story, and he has two children, a son Braxton and a daughter Hemera (my level 11 Human Gunslinger), but when his son was born, the Sith made Axton give up his son into slavery (who was later renamed Phobus when he became Sith). When Hemera was a young child, Imperial Intellegence wanted to recruit her into their forces, but Axton did not want such a wretched life for her, so he was forced to give her to a band of sumgglers that was based in the Mos Eisley Cantina. I have a bunch of aliens though, so I'm slowly putting together different relations, such as Tavot possibly being an adopted brother to Hemera, or Phobos being an adopted brother to Phobus. So that's in the works and is really fun. I'll also be testing out patch 1.2 on the Public Test Server! Woot! I'll let you know how it is. Lastly, I hate BioWare's Customer Service. See I pre-order the game, so I was supposed to recieve an exclusive color crystal, but I never got a code for it. After months of trying to fix the issue with GameStop, they told me to take it up with BioWare. Oh. My. God. Honestly, I've never seen worse. They told me to go onto the fleet and purchase the crystal, when you can't do that because my account isn't registered with a pre-order! Ugh...
~Skyrim: I made a new Wood Elf that I'm going to play so I can make a Mammoth army ... ok, I know it doesn't work like that. But I'd like to command a few Mammoths; could be fun. That's not to say I deleted my other character; just trying something new.
~Minecraft: I've actually been itching to play more Minecraft, but SWTOR keeps taking me away from everything I love. I did, however, unleash a plague of chickens upon my friends' server last night. They were pretty pissed...
~World of Warcraft: Chazz's girlfriend sent me a Scroll of Resurrection (yes, I played Wow...) yesterday, but since my account hasn't been active since 2006 (that's right, I played when Burning Crusade first came out), it's not hooked up to a Battle.net account and so I have to go through Customer Service now. Did I mention I hate Customer Service?
Also, The Hunger Games premier is so close! I can't wait to go see it! It's going to be a blast. I'll be sure to update you with a full movie review right after I see it.
That's it for today. I'll be back with something actually report-like soon!
Peter, The SteamWorks
