Everyone here already knows I'm a gamer. Regardless of this fact, I have a desire to babble about it some more. So, I'm going to. Well, not so much about gaming, but about what games I'm currently enjoying or looking to enjoy. (Boy that sentence sounds dirty when you type it out...)

Video Games
Mario Party 4: No, you didn't read that wrong. Ever since [livejournal.com profile] psifire's vacation visit, I've played a game or two of this a day. I realize that 4 came out an eternity ago, but we haven't bought an updated version in, well, ever. Maybe that'll change when we get some money. And we can buy two new controllers for the 'cube while we're at it.
Final Fantasy XII: If you read back far enough, you'll see when I got my hands on this game. I love it, but like every major FF release since 7, I never completed it on my first attempt. Unlike FFX, though, I plan on picking up where my save game currently is since I'm kicking so much ass in it instead of starting over.
Civilization IV: This game just came out with a second expansion (which we have yet to buy), so I'm busily smashing the AI into oblivion as any Leader that interests me. Once we get some extra money, we're getting the latest expansion.
World of Warcraft: The break I had to take due to moving for this game somewhat derailed me. Well, that and everyone else in my guild having breaks at about the same time for various reasons. I still want to play, but I don't want to just log in to pick flowers or lazily play an alt. I want to run instances with Letalli or Maristall.
City of Heroes: I'm seriously wanting to get back into this. I can't wait until we have some spare money so we can reactivate our accounts.

Tabletop Games
World of Warcraft CCG: I sorta want to play... I don't want to buy cards, but I want to play. Weird. My main problem with this is I don't know enough people who also play and I'm not going to just go play randomly at a store.
Mage: The Ascension: I want to run Mage, really I do! It's just that every time I get asked if I've been thinking about the Mage game (which [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi and [livejournal.com profile] carebear_flare have had exactly one session of), my brain goes bezerk. The problem is, I know who the bad guy is. I'm not certain what the bad guy is doing, though. And I'm not certain what the character's mentors are up to yet, either. We've got this great built-in cast of characters (thanks to numerous WoD games we've played or run based in Ann Arbor), but I can't come up with a decent story in my head. It's driving me nuts.

I'd love to be a player in a tabletop RPG. I'm just having mental blocks coming up with characters.

Wow. It's been a while since I posted in here! I feel like such a bad blogger, except for that part where I don't typically blog so much as babble when I write in this thing. Still, it beats the mounds of memes that I used to post all the time.

So, what has my life been like since last I posted? Let us explore, shall we?

Weekends off? Cool! Oh wait, there was money involved in that... )

FullTimeJob needs socialization badly. )

[livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi has been going crazy due to end of the semester wackiness, and group projects where his group is non-existant. That's all done and over with and so far so good. He has this week off then starts summer term up next week. Here's to hoping the job hunt goes well, too.

I got bit by the spring cleaning bug. I got a lot done, but have a lot more to do. And I really want to keep it up this time. Granted, I say that EVERY time and it never sticks. I've got a bit more laundry to do, my desk to clean, and my bathroom to clean and then all of my areas are done. I should probably vacuum the apartment today or tomorrow, too.

I don't watch enough TV. Honest. )

We still need to go visit [livejournal.com profile] lilacmoon5 before she and her husband move out of state. The move date got pushed back, so we have a little more time, but I want to do it soon™. Why, yes, I do want to get season 1 of Battlestar Galactica back so that I can watch it and then season 2 and then season 3 when we buy it and get caught up. I'm weird that way. :p And I wouldn't mind getting one last Shadowrun game in, either. Or a few games of Fluxx or Dalmuti or Crononauts.

Sims 2 addiction much? )

I almost regret to say that I cancelled my City of Heroes account. We haven't played either Heroes or Villains in months, so it was a logical decision. Of course, Issue 9 was just released today. Fortunately, there isn't anything in Issue 9 that has me jumping up and down and going "I want it! I want it!" so it's not going to get me back.

World of Warcraft babble )

[livejournal.com profile] nuadha_prime needs to have a card night again soon. Granted, more people need to show up for them, but hey. ;) And I need to get him back his copy of Kingdom Come. Reminds me, I need to pick up comics. I'm a little behind. Dropping Wonder Woman until issue 13, though, so that should help. Probably going to cut back a little bit more, but not sure.

Anyrate, I've spent 30 minutes typing this up. I'm gonna post it and maybe write more later. :p
jdotmi: (pr0n)
Last night was a card night at [livejournal.com profile] nuadha_prime's place. [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi and I were dumb and left our leftovers there, though. ~_~ Oops. We played the WoW CCG, doing the Onyxia's Lair pack. It was pretty fun, but we got pummeled by Ony ([livejournal.com profile] nuadha_prime) pretty badly. :-p Looks like card night may be moving to a day that isn't Wednesday. Tuesday was the vote of 3 of the five there (patch day, of course we'll choose that as the night we wouldn't be busy!). He's also running a Final Fantasy inspired Savage Worlds game, which sounds like it could be a lot of fun. And my friday's are mostly free, so definitely could be fun.

Today is my last day of work at Borders until the 22nd. I'm on vacation all next week. Definitely looking forward to it! I don't have a lot of work to do today as it is, so I'm going to probably spend most of the afternoon writing documentation and going through other people's cases to see if there's anything I can close out. As it is, I know I have a couple cases of my own that can't be closed today, so it's a matter of getting as much done so the next person to get the case can pretty much close it within a day or so.

My stomach is not happy with me. I'm not sure why. I'm blaming the pepperoni from dinner last night, though. Heh. I'm not as fond of pepperoni as I once was, so who knows.

I went insane at some point and decided that I need to be doing "something" in WoW every day. Or multiple times a day. Tonight is going to be fun, because it'll be [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi, [livejournal.com profile] carebear_flare, me, and two other people (or maybe one?) running through an instance together. Tomorrow, though, I totally lost my mind. I'm running Blackrock Depths in the morning, and then I'm going to Scholomance in the evening. And I have to go shopping at some point in between the two. [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi's just rolling his eyes at me at that one, and I can't honestly say I blame him.

Well, my 15 minute break is about over. Time to get back to work!
jdotmi: (Just Me)
I am one of those rare people who actually has room in his mouth for some of his wisdom teeth. In particular, I have plenty of room for my top wisdom teeth. Not so much for the bottom. Either way, my top left side wisdom tooth came in a few years back. It's a little off center, but it's in and fine. Now, my top right one is coming in. I noticed on Monday that the gum was really sore and sorta throbbing and it was freaking me out. Yesterday, the throbbing was gone, but it was still tender. I felt it and, sure enough, I could feel the tooth just under the gum. Today, the tooth is closer to the surface, but hasn't yet broken through. I'm not much looking forward to that point, because it freakin' hurt when the first one came through. Although, this one actually has slightly more room to come out than the other one did. Still. Annoying. And, ya know, OW!

Batman #659 and #660 )

No WoW CCG playing tonight. Potentially tomorrow, though. Put $5 of gas in [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi's car on my way in to work. We'll fill up both cars on Friday or so, is my thinking. I need to get some CoH time in tonight to get more Snaptooth missions done and do some present opening. May go grind some undead for faction in WoW, too.

Anyrate, break time is up, so I have to get back to work.

Bought some comics today.

JSA #1 )

Birds of Prey #100 )

Also picked up the two latest issues of Batman, but I haven't read them. Apparently the one I picked up last week was older than I thought. The issues I nabbed are #659 and #660. I'll read them tonight, I'm sure.

Also picked up 5 boosters for the WoW CCG for myself and a Starter deck and 5 boosters for [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi. He's napping right now (he's still working off the icky-gunk of doom he's been dealing with) but we'll go through what we've got and get his deck in order. The happy thing is that his pre-made deck is a Tauren Shaman, which is exactly what he wanted. Couldn't have planned it better if we tried.

Well, I'm going to sort out cards and re-build my Priest deck now.

First off... holy hell what the fuck did they do to the update journal page??? o_O

Second, went over to [livejournal.com profile] nuadha_prime's place last night to play some of the WoW CCG. It was a lot of fun. [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi and I are going to pick him up a deck tomorrow. And I think we need to get [livejournal.com profile] winterlady and [livejournal.com profile] bugfish playing, too. Cuz then we can drag them over for it as well.

Also borrowed the OYL issues of Teen Titans from [livejournal.com profile] nuadha_prime. And the introduction of the White Martians in JLA. Loaned the four issues of Supergirl that I have to him so he can catch up on that one.

Today is my Friday. *yey* Then I work again on Saturday. *boo*

Well, my break time is almost over. Time to get back to the work grind.
jdotmi: (Default)
Today was a shopping trip to Staidum Cards & Comics, where I picked up a bunch of books. And a starter pack for the WoW CCG.

Comics stuff and spoilers below the cuts.

Teen Titans #41 )

Wonder Woman #3 )

Batman #658 )

Supergirl #11 and #12 )

All in all, I'm pretty happy with the books I picked up. I'm thinking of starting a regular pull list with Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, Supergirl, JSA, Birds of Prey, and Teen Titans in it. We'll see, though.
