Will take a look but like Dave E says, scheduling and real life prevent me doing much of anything interesting on a regular basis. I did see about Pathfinder Online running into difficulties and I think you were a fan of that weren't you David? The MMORPG market is thoroughly saturated now so you'll have all sorts of games coming and going as they try and fail to grab a share of the market. Still amazed that WoW has just over 5 million subscribers (at last count I believe) seeing as its such an old game and the pay to play model is not so popular these days. To tell the truth I don't miss the grind of that, and MMORPGS are mostly about that, in my experience Sad (Run here, kill that, collect this, repeat, then go there for reward)

Yeah, PFO is barely hanging on. They have enough subscribers to keep three people working and the servers up. They have one more big update to the game to do. After that ....? If they can find someone to invest or buy the game, it will go on. If not, it will probably vanish after a few months.

SWTOR is interesting in that each class has its own storyline. Pretty much all of it you can solo through. You can also choose to play in a PvE server or a PvP server. But it is a limited game too. Once you get through the storylines, which are pretty good actually, you don't have much left to do except space combat, group combat and individual combat. But still, its hours of fun for a relatively cheap price - free or a modest monthly charge to advance a bit faster.

I just recently joined a guild The Crimson Tide, which just started up this past weekend. Depending on how many folks you have in a guild you get a certain percentage bonus to your xp. But if you just want to do the storylines, the guilds are not that important. They are more for the other stuff - combating players and crafting stuff.

Don't remember much of Christmas or New Years as I was sleeping most of the time. clown
Had to take two days off after my one day at work. Energy levels much lower than I thought. But back at work again with a heating pad that may help get me through the day. Very Happy

Went to see CA:Civil War. Probably best Marvel movie yet! 2 after credit scenes, 1st is maybe worth waiting for, not too fussed about the second.

I loved it as well, saw it the same weekend. The post credits scenes were great, and I loved both as I am a Spidey fan anyway. Steeplejack was my UK version of Spidey.

If you played City of Heroes/City of Villains, Ship of Heroes - trying to immulate those games as much as legally able to - is having a Kickstarter beginning April 4th.

Here's the link if you want to look it over.

Well, I had to go to Maine late on Friday, my step-dad had dropped into a coma and was going to die soon. He died late Saturday night/Sunday morning around 3 AM. We had his memorial service on Tuesday. Got back to Raleigh early Thursday morning. He had Alzheimer's and spent the last three years of his life at the Maine Veterans Home. He had served in WW2 aboard the submarine, the USS Char. He was 92.

David sorry to hear your news, I didn't realise things had gotten so bad for him. As I work partly as a Hospital Chaplain I know first hand how this time year is difficult for many for just this reason. I hope that such a long life, was worth celebrating and you being there was helpful for the family and for yourself. I trust it won't stop you enjoying your own Christmas.

What are your plans this year? Will you have the family to you, or you go to them?

He passed while sleeping so I guess it was as peaceful as it could be. The whole family was there, except for my older sister who is in the hospital up there in the cardiac unit with heart problems complicated by the new flu that the flu shot doesn't cover. It was more joy than sadness at his passing. His suffering has ended and hopefully we will all be together in heaven when my time comes. But thanks for the thoughts.

Sorry to hear about this David (i've literally, right now, had chance to sit down and check in). There's no real consolation but 92 is a ripe old age and knowing your step dad is no longer suffering must be a relief.

I wish the pair of you and your families the best over the holiday season and beyond. I've had a challenging year and I know you guys have too, so thanks for sticking around this place when I'm the one who has slowed things to a crawl. I plan to update on Boxing day (26th, don't know what Americans call it?) but no rush for you guys as this time of year to be spent with families etc.

Cheers, and happy xmas, Paul Very Happy

Boxing Day? I think we call it the Day After Christmas Sales and Returns Day!
Been fighting bronchitis since I got back from Maine, so it has been a hard month. Everyone, enjoy yourselves.

Sore throat must be catching. I've lost my voice and it's the perfect time for friends and family to come round and visit and (finally!) get that word in edgeways they can't with me normally!

On laundry duty so will see how far I get with the updates. Back at work tomorrow Sad for two days, then 4 days off Very Happy
