Monday Afternoon Wanna Go Blues
Spent the weekend recuperating. Finally sent HERO back to Netflix, watched some football yesterday. Only missed two games in picks against others in my league for the third straight week, so I'm moving up there. No money involved, just bragging rights at the end of the season. Played a little Sword of the New World which is an RPG that is free. I have a musketeer, a fighter, and a scout running around the non-PVP server. I received the client on a demo CD in a gaming magazine a few months ago, loaded it a month ago, and dabble in it's world for a couple of hours a week. Lots of pretty colors, and was fairly easy to get use to after playing through the tutorial. They make their money when you use real money to buy fantasy weapons, armor, other artifacts. I haven't done that, and just enjoy the free diversion now and then. Even with the client loaded from the CD the first time, it still took a long time to download the updates the first time, ever since it has been very quick, even through my wireless router. The other two games that occupy my recuperating time are Sid Meier's Railroads! and Universal Combat - THE space simulator. Started a commercial trader and tried a non-combat role. It was fun, but after aquiring 24 million credits in twelve hours, I wasn't sure if I wanted to wait for the special artifacts on the third day, or if they would even work on my trading ship, since I did not have a Research Officer, that some of the artifacts require. Probably go back to being a military commander of a carrier and work my way up to fleet control again. Deleted the first two campaigns I was in, so will have to start from scratch. Feeling a lot better, may even play in the local tournament tonight.
