Just a smallish post today-getting ready for the holiday season tends to eat into the gaming time. Still, I’ve managed to put a bit of time in anyway.
Dathiro in Star Trek Online is proceeding quite nicely; I’ve gotten him to where I’m almost ready to do the next big post with him, although-again-time has more or less guaranteed that it won’t go up before the New Year. I’ve done a couple of Foundry missions and have a third lined up, but I’ve also been doing a bit of the Winter Event to see if I can manage to get enough of the vouchers this year to get the Winter ship. It seems doable, even with the time I’ll be away from the keyboard, but we’ll see how things finally shake out. I’ll have some thoughts on leveling and the specific Foundry missions I’ve been doing next time (unless something big happens in the MMO-sphere that gets my attention).
I’ve also put some time into my Star Wars: The Old Republic Bounty Hunter, since he’s the last of my original eight main guys who needs to finish the Eternal Throne content. He’s recently hit his max level and is about to attend the big party (and accompanying party-crashing) on Zakuul. I’d hoped to have that all wrapped before the end of the year, but that’s so not going to happen. SWTOR’s winter event/anniversary is also happening, but there isn’t much new to grab; a new flair for your portrait for free, another you can earn with the snowball game (I think), and most amusingly, a commemorative statue of Valkorion for your stronghold-because after all the time you had to spend with him lurking in your mind, you just can’t quit him. (Honestly, that’s the sort of thing that should be clickable so you can throw rotten fruit at it. Missed opportunity here, Bioware!)
It’s probably also worth noting that I’ve started doing short log-ins with my EVE character, mostly to start training up some skills so he can start looking at cruisers and higher; since the big patch came down with the changes in character limits, I’ve thought about putting a bit more time into EVE, but for now, it’s just limited to “swap skill training”.
So that’s where things are at the moment-aside from me wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah (I know, I’m practically closing the barn door here), or the holiday of your choice! See you in ’18!
