I'm a little late to the Guild Wars 2 party, being of limited funds. I almost wish I had bought it instead of Assassin's Creed 3 because for the life of me I haven't been able to get into it past a few multiplayer sessions. The multiplayer isn't as fun as I remember, but maybe I haven't played it enough to get my mojo back and getting stabbed in the face every two seconds isn't so fun. And I haven't started the single player because honestly it just seems exhausting.
Really, this is less of a post and more of an excuse for me to relate the most hilariously awful gaming experience of my life. Its been forever since I wrote anything (even for the Starcraft Diaries, though I have TONS of material) so I'm hoping to get the brain juices flowing once more. Alrighty. So, there's a group that meets every other Saturday at my preferred game store to play Pathfinder. I love me some Pathfinder, so I decided to join one of the open tables.
Yes, Dungeons and Dragons isn't a video game. But without it, I doubt the single-player RPG would have happened at all. And lets be honest, RPGs are like the really cool girl in high school that all the other genres want to dress like. The concept of leveling up has snuck into the God of War series, Devil May Cry, Assassin's Creed, and tons of others. And besides, this is my blog, and there's maybe three people who are going to read this. So I write what I want! Suck it, my girlfriend is Science!
Apparently I'm not done talking about multiplayer, because shortly after posting about how obsessively competitive players might need to take a chill pill every so often something happened that illustrated my point exactly. I've been getting more and more in the ME3 multiplayer, mostly because I'm too broke to buy any new games. So I've been sucking less and less over time, getting used to different classes, etc.
