The above link is my Flipboard magazine -- a currated collection of articles, tweets, even videos about console gaming, MMOs & DragonCon.  Over 2000 viewers and growing.


History: This blog is the third incarnation, and started as a paper RPG & desktop gaming blog.  After starting the MMO City of Heroes days after its launch in 2004,  It developed into one dedicated to that MMO, as it remained for nearly eight years. On November 30, 2012 that MMO was shut down by the company NCSoft despite an outpouring of fan support and community outrage.  Starting In December 2012, I'm going to be opening up the focus of the blog to cover ANYTHING gaming I'm playing, be it PC, XBox 360, iPad, Dragon*Con, etc.

That being said, their will be images from various games posted on this blog.  No claim here is made to the games, and no intent to infringe on any copyrights are inferred.   Copyrights are property of the respective companies.

Diablo III - Season 2

I have to admit I'm enjoying Diablo III again.   Friday night was the start of Season 2 -- I started a demon hunter then (not hardcore) and last night got him to Level 70.  Paragon 3 was hit before I called it a night.  I did try and run him through expert campaign mode a second time, but after hearing that something was wrong with the settings of Expert backed that down to Hard and went back to the adventure mode.  I've been doing Act I bounties to get him through.  ITs worked.   I have to admit that for a long time I was going with Cold turrets, and rapid fire as my main attacks.   Latlely with Ballistics and Custom Engineering I'm using 3 fire turrets (rockets) and evasive fire.   That combo has been SOOOO much easier to mow through Hard mobs.   I hope to move to Expert after a few dozen Paragon levels...

I'm in a City of Heroes Clan -- and with the advent of Season 2 I've racked up 1800+ achievement points since Friday.  Thas has thrown me up to second place in the clan for highest achievment point total.  Its wild since I don't have the paragon levels that some players have but I've got the achievments?   I can only assume that others are taking shortcuts in leveling that I'm not.  And achievment wise it shows.   Only a handful are active in the clan -- almost none over the weekend.  All the NEWS was my loot & achivements almost totally exclusively.  I did get to team once last week with a clan member.  Right now he's the only one I've done that with.

My Hardcore Wizard stands at 50.   I don't know when I will get back to it.

I hope to start another seasonal character shortly.  I'm debating about which class to try.  Maybe a Witch Doctor, but I don't know.   We'll see.  I'll burn that bridge when I get there.  At least now I've got plenty of Marquis gems and gold to fund/equip a low level character and speed it through the grind.
