And no, I'm not dead yet!
Sorry for the dearth of blog posts. I haven't really had much to blog about lately. I've tried a number of free MMO's, none of which was worth writing about. I have tried to solo in Champions Online since I can't get two computers working so that at the least my wife can join me but the classes I choose (mind and glacier) just aren't so great at soloing. And when you are out of stars(you lose a star every time you die and it affects your ability ot do damage and take damage), it starts to feel like a hopeless cause. I need to get our home computer fixed so that the universe will be right again.
I am really enjoying Rune Factory Frontier. It launched in winter of 2009 and is a fun little game which has a marriage, dungeon and farming system as well as fishing, forging, cooking, and more. It has festivals, lumberjacking, mining, etc.. Very similar to harvest moon. Just more dungeon stuff added in. And more mysterious events, so its a little less peaceful.
I am also really enjoying Fire Emblem. I just borrowed the new Fire Emblem for the Wii from my dad (Radiant Dawn) which continues the story. More on that later. I'm really looking forward to trying out the following MMOs: City of Heroes free to play, and Dragon's Nest sometimes in August (I don't play beta's anymore so I'm waiting for official launches...)
