NDA is DOA

jdotmi: (Kung Ru)
Oh hey, the City of Heroes: Going Rogue NDA is gone now.

I'll have to make a post later from home about it. ^_~

Holy shit I'm still alive? Who the hell is this random person showing up on your friend's page? WTF? ^_~
jdotmi: (Hidden Justice)
So, the WoW kick subsided and I'm on a City of Heroes kick.

So, yeah.

I need to post this without comment. Really. And totally uncropped/unresized. So here you go. But I'll be nice and put it behind a cut.

A picture is worth how many words? )
jdotmi: (Kung Ru)
I, um. I may have played just a teensy tiny bit too much City of Heroes over the weekend. And by "teensy tiny" I mean "I can't feel my legs!"

I made a brand new Dual Pistols/Mental Manipulation blaster on Thursday. When I went to bed on Sunday, she was level 30. And I even stopped to cook meals, leave the apartment, and sleep a few times.

I'd show you pictures, but it's not like I took time out of my busy levelling schedule to take any. :-p Maybe later.
jdotmi: (Kung Ru)
  • I must forsake all games except City of Heroes. It is Double XP. And I have access to Dual Pistols.

    • As an addendum to the above, I must make room on Virtue for new toons. Cuz I think I need Blaster for this set. And I will need a space for future Demon Summoning goodness.

  • I must find out if we can go visit some friends for cheesy B-movie grade horror flicks. But we may have other plans already for Saturday, so that may get nixed. :(


Okay, so it's a really short list, I just felt like using HTML to relax myself after a busy morning. :-p
jdotmi: (Default)
Holy shit, you guys! I need to have my head examined or something, cuz I am out of my freaking mind! I'm not even kidding. I would blame the new PC, but this all started long before it arrived.

So, let's do a little breakdown of what the hell I'm babbling about.

City of Heroes
Just pre-purchased the new Going Rogue expansion for both me and [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi. Did not make a pistols character as I do not have slots open on Virtue and do not want to buy more slots right now. Probably should just free transfer some toons off to other places. May yet do that.

World of Warcraft
My friend John just got into the game, so now I have yet another person to chat with when playing that.

Star Trek Online
Has it's own post. :D It's shiny and new!

Champions Online
I had to see how it looked on the new beast, so I paid for a month (I played for the free month when I bought it after the free trial thing they did). Now that I've let it sit away for a bit, I'm finding I sorta enjoy it.


So. Yeah. Four games active. I'm supposed to have time to play them how???
jdotmi: (Kung Ru)
Who scored a Praetorian Clockwork code this morning off of twitter?

Yeah, that'd be me, thanks.

And I won't even get to really use it until late tonight since we have a birthday dinner to attend after work
jdotmi: (Meme)
Oh hey, look at that, I've still got a LiveJournal!

Sorry, y'all. Twitter and Facebook ate my brain.

And I'd have a really cool and informative update, but I'm at work and I'm busy and I have a new boss starting tomorrow so I gotta get shit done.

WoW and CoH also ate my brain. CoH will eat it more once Issue 16 goes into open beta. Or I get into closed. Whichever comes first.

Also? True Blood and Dollhouse. Did I mention I've read the entire Sookie Stackhouse series of novels three times now? Two of which were in a row? I'm now lending the books to a co-worker of Keith's so that I don't read them all again.

And now, I track food! I'm trying to cut down on what I'm eating. To say I've been eating a bit too much lately is a bit of an understatement.

Cut cuz you really don't care. )
jdotmi: (The Third Flower is Green)
Eagerly awaiting the new season of True Blood. Got season 1 (twice, first copy had two disk 5's and no disk 3's) and have been enjoying it far too much. Especially with enhanced viewing. Also been re-reading the first four books. Need to get the rest since they are introducing characters in season 2 that don't appear in the books until book 5 and later.

Been watching a lot of Dollhouse on iTunes. Probably more than is healthy. I even made a small number of icons from "Man on the Street". Because, ya know, I post oh so much...

Been playing City of Heroes and Civilization IV: Colonization and World of Warcraft. It's really hard to stay in one game for longer than 30 minutes at a time right now, though. -_- My ability to focus has gone pfffffzt!

Netflix is evil. In a good way. The Golden Compass was a good movie and they need to make the sequel now. Currently getting disks of Birds of Prey, which was cheesy and somewhat over the top but was still a pretty decent show.

Just finished a huge project at work and am now waiting to launch said project and train people on it. Time to get back to work
jdotmi: (Kung Ru)
So, I took a lot of pictures in City of Heroes. Just character shots that I mostly used to give portraits to my characters on the City Info Tracker, but here they are with some description of who the characters are.

LJ-cut to save your friends list. And your sanity. )

CITY OF HEROES: GOING ROGUE

THERE IS NOT ENOUGH CAPSLOCK IN THE WORLD TO EXPRESS MY OHMYGOD!
jdotmi: (Kung Ru)
Hi, my name is [livejournal.com profile] jdotmi and I may have a slight City of Heroes/Villains addiction.

Hi, Pete!

...

5th Anniversary of the game is coming up, oh, pretty much now. I'm about 7 or 8 months off in played time since launch due to various breaks, but still. And I may have a few too many characters to keep track of (not a complete list).

And it looks like the devs are going to be getting a jump on the festivities sooner rather than later.

*sigh*
jdotmi: (stfu)
I was going to post this as a comment on the CoH comm, but then I remembered that far too many people on that comm haven't been worth the effort of late. Someone decided that the lead costume artist should be called "Sexist Jay" because of the female witch costume options coming in the Magic-themed booster pack for CoH. And, boy, they should get a real live woman working with him (as opposed to the fake ones like War Witch and Ex Libris, apparently). That said, I'm not above being bitchy and sarcastic in the brief response I did post over there. I did not, however, post the below post. So I'm putting it here.


You know, a lot of people back in the day complained about how sexist it was in EverQuest when the new female models they generated with Shadows of Luclin all had ginormous boobs. Turns out the model designer was a chick. Oops.

Comic book females in general have prominently displayed and barely covered chests. Not all of them, but then there are certain genres of characters that typically do. Black Magic Chicks, especially. This includes characters made and drawn by women, not just those that men come up with. And, let's be extra fair here. They've given everyone (straight, gay, male, female, all of the above, none of the above, other) plenty of eye candy in this game since it launched. (Not that I'd know or anything.)

That said, I'd like an option with the side-panels on the female witch costume filled in. And an option with a slightly higher bust line.
jdotmi: (Kung Ru)
If you don't play City of Heroes, this post will make no sense to you.

Now that the Mission Architect has gone live, I can honestly say it's way more fun when people actually play your arc. So far, I've had 5 ratings on a junk arc I loaded up (Mass Chaos, Arc 3998) and it has no plot. It's a fun set of fights, though, so that definitely helps out. 5 missions, 3 bosses each, small/medium maps. Longbow - Arachnos - Council - Paragon Police - Rikti.

I got enough tickets out of the first three missions in the original 5 boss version to unlock everything I needed for the first real arc that I'm working on, so I nerfed it down to 3 bosses. 5 was just a bit of overkill.

Break time's over, back to work!
jdotmi: (Kalleesta COV)
This coming Wednesday, City of Heroes is releasing it's next free expansion called "Architect". I've been messing with it on the test server.

You can make your own custom enemies and missions.

I AM SO ADDICTED.

I have two arcs currently up on it. One is called "Terror Incognito", which is Kalleesta hiring some villain to go beat down on the Terra Incognito crew. The second is just a one-shot creepy lil mission called "School of the Damned", which has a demon taking over a boarding school and eating the students. Obviously, more heroic in nature since you're trying to rescue the staff and students. I'll have to play a few arcs on Live to unlock stuff before I can publish them once it goes live, but I plan on getting the running on live as soon as I can. Hopefully they work out okay.

But now vacation time is over (can you guess what I did for most of it?) and it's time to get back to work.
jdotmi: (Default)
So, yeah. I've been decidedly unchatty on LiveJournal of late, so I figured I'd, well, not fix it but, ya know, pretend to care.

Um. I'm on vacation this week! So, yeah. Home all week. Uh. We joined Netflix finally. Now we just gotta find stuff to watch via the xbox on it. First two movies we had shipped to us were blu-ray's of Iron Man and The Dark Knight which we will probably watch at some point this week. Both WoW and CoX have 6 month subscriptions attached, too.

I beat Star Ocean 4 a week or so ago. Prolly more. But now I'm doing the bonus dungeons and the Arena. I sorta accidentally beat the final arena boss in under 5 minutes the first time I fought him, so I may be just a tad overlevelled. And I beat the first bonus dungeon end boss (first flavor) in under 10 minutes. I know this cuz there were Battle Trophies attached and all that. So yeah.

OH! I got WORMS for the Xbox! It's one of their downloadable games. [livejournal.com profile] dianak would be so amused. I am noting a distinct lack of holy hand grenades so far, though. :( And no carpet bombs.

[livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi is finally finishing up Battlestar Galactica. Tivo is very happy that he's getting done with all his shows on it. :-p

Well, that's all I got. Time to plan for tomorrow, what with it being our 11th anniversary and all that. (Yes, for real, yes, we are so amused by this.)
jdotmi: (Kalleesta COV)
Winter needs to go away. I mean it. It needs to not be winter now. It is freezing cold, the roads coming in were icy and nasty, and we passed a lovely three car accident that happened within 5 to 10 minutes of us passing them. Really. Winter? So over it now.

Three day work week! Yay! Didn't buy any Christmas presents this year again. :( But we got [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi's car fixed, so I don't feel too horrible about that. I'm still waiting on one of the books I bought my cousin to arrive, though. The USPS sat on it in Maryland for a week before it showed up in Detroit. Now I'm just waiting for it to be delivered. Preferrably today.

The face of one of the drawers in our kitchen fell off this morning when I went to get sandwich bags out. It just came right off. x_x I have to call the office when I have my break time to get them to fix it. I'm not sure how salvageable the drawer is, but ugh. At least it wasn't the silverware drawer or something.

I'm back in City of Heroes! This is good and bad. Bad because while I may be back in CoH, I'm still focusing more time in WoW. I got my Shaman up to 22 and all. And my Warlock to 36. And I started working on my Death Knight again. Then there was a queue so I went and got my main VEAT through a mission in City and was scared by the Patrol XP bonus that gave her 4 bubbles from one mission at 22. o_o For those who could folllow that entire paragraph and understand it, I fear for your sanity.

Okay, time to assign out some more work to others.
jdotmi: (William)
So, this weekend, what with the virus scare yesterday, and a lot of other things today, has pretty much been shot for online gaming. This is especially annoying as City of Heroes had a free weekend this weekend which pretty much guaranteed that in the not too distant future I will be renewing my account. The thing is, it wasn't quite enough to kick me out of my WoW habit. So it's going to have to wait for another paycheck.

I think I'm going to stick with time cards for both games, though. It makes it a lot easier to control my finances that way. The fewer automatic bill payments I'm doing the better, as far as I'm concerned. Yeah, it could be cheaper overall to do the automatic thing, but it's burned me enough lately as it is.

The other side effect of this weekend off is that it has broken the "OMG SO SHINY" from the WoW expansion for me. I took advantage of this with a trip to Borders to abuse my employee appreciation discount. I picked up Season 2 of Heroes and Season 1 of Pushing Daisies fuck you ABC and your lack of keeping this show going. I also spent a good deal of time this weekend rewatching True Blood thanks to the joys of On-Demand.

Well, I'm going to indulge in some addiction or another I think. Well, that and take lil breaks to fold the ginormous pile of laundry that [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi has managed to stack on my bed.
jdotmi: (Kalleesta COV)
So, I hopped into the City last night. )

Then I went and played WoW. )

Now I'm craving chinese food. Yes I just ate lunch. No, I'm not hungry. I never claimed my cravings made any sense.
jdotmi: (Hidden Justice)
Apparently, to celebrate the new issue, they're having a reactivation weekend in City of Heroes.

...

My WoW addiction isn't waning enough to allow me to fully appreciate this development, but I shall indeed take some advantage of it.
