Due to my new career and it’s demands on my time, I haven’t been able to game as much as I’d like. At work, I have been painting the playroom and reorganizing everything. I spent around $3000 on new supplies. I am getting them in slowly, and thankfully it was left over money from the annual budget. The new fiscal year has begun so I should be able to order more toys. I will likely focus on the equipment for outside as the weather is improving. I love spending time playing outside with the children. Going on treasure hunts, running around the park, and making monster stew and gobbling everyone up!
The painting job was a rather big one, but I was determined to do it myself. I wanted the room yellow and green. After posting the colour swabs to twitter (@themidnitefaery), a friend told me that it looked like Xbox colours. I suppose they did! Subconsciously xbox is invading my thoughts 😉 Either way, yellow and green are gender neutral and bright colours promote play in a fun atmosphere. That’s my opinion anyways.
Check out the room before I painted:
I am currently playing Dragon Age 2. I have put about 25 hours into the game. I am playing as a Mage. Her specialties are fire and frost. I am working on healing magic next. Basically, she is amazing. Yet I am struggling to kill some Frost Mage. I keep dying over and over again. I have no idea how to kill the blasted thing!! >.< I will write a review when I finish the game, but my opinion at the moment is that the game is very: disconnected.
As for my Rock Band 3 addiction, I am still singing a lot. I am ranked #14 in the world for the “Total Vocals”. Which includes DLC. The ranking for Rock Band 3 vocals is somewhere around #150. I have gotten gold stars on almost every RB3 song! I am missing 3. Gold stars are pretty because you get them if you “master” the song. Basically, get better than 95% and use your star power at the right time.
Left 4 Dead 2 has taken a bit of a back seat. I did however have an epic zombie slaying match a couple nights ago. My team was awesome and we kicked butt! It’s all about your team on that game. I can’t wait for the new DLC to come out.
I have been working on my Gaming & Giving Back Challenge for Day 8. I just haven’t found anyone who actually “needs” a care package and wants to have it sent to them. The things that I’ve collected so far are mainly girly toiletries. So… if you, or anyone you knows wants a small “care package” sent, please let me know through email: firstname.lastname@example.org
