Thoughts from TheNinjaD
I didn’t get a comic post up yesterday because I was out of town. I had taken a trip up to the Twin Cities, including a stop at the Source.
The name really says it. The Source is the go-to place for comics and gaming in the state of Minnesota. Soon they will be moving into a new, even bigger location. Their website cane be found here. It’s kind of a mess but with some time it should tell you anything you need to know.
Yesterday began a a very busy week in World of Warcraft.
Since this is the first full week of the month, the Darkmoon Faire is going on. Also, the Lunar Festival is still going. Being the start of February, Love is in the Air just started.
Three world events at once. That’s a lot to do.
World of Warcraft is down today during the entire time I would normally get a chance to play. They do this usually once a week. That’s bad enough but it’s made worse by the fact that you can’t count on it. It’s not always down on the same day and the time can sometimes shift.
This hasn’t been a problem with SWTOR. In general, I think Bioware and EA just have their shit together a lot more than Blizzard. The tradeoff, I guess, is that EA does evil giant corporation things (like launch day DLC out the ass) whereas Blizzard, while they’re running a solid business, does seem to be operated by a bunch of geeks that actually like what they’re doing.
Still, I get annoyed when I want to log into WoW and find out that the realms are all down. Sometimes there is only a couple of hours of warning. Other times, when you’re lucky, you get a full 24 hours. It used to be every Tuesday…last week it was Wednesday.
The massive order of WoW TCG cards we made from David and Adam’s (great site, check it out, they’re dirt cheap) is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow. I’m looking forward to opening a shitload of cards.
My girlfriend and I have taken up a different kind of gambling. Instead of lottery tickets, we’re buying World of Warcraft TCG cards. Each set has at least three loot cards, the rarest of which can usually sell for $100 to $600.
This way, if we don’t win, we’re left with cards for a pretty fun game instead of dirty paper. Sounds good to me.
I learned last night, via an e-mail, that people that have signed up for SWTOR and paid for a month before early March will be getting a special title for all of their characters. The title is ‘Founder’.
It was hard for me to decide which level to support the Shadow Era physical cards on. I had been very tempted to go for tge $150 to get all 10 starter decks and two booster boxes. I still think I might end up ordering that before this is over.
What I did go fir was the $30 level, which is a single booster box. I’m really feeling like I want more now, though.
This isn’t exactly the best way for me to start talking about Shadow Era butI wanted to get the information out asmuch as possible as quickly as I can. They are making physical Shadow Era cards. Until now, this has been a digital-only game. You can support this project and preorder the cards right here.
