I’m back from the lan party and it was awesome. This lan party is held at a four star hotel, so the beds are good, the food is good and the chairs are comfy. The best, of course, is the people. This group is limited. Friends of friends only and you have to be approved. So all the assholes and cheaters are kept out. No one will steal your controller or hard disk when you go to sleep. The conversations are great during dinner time and on Teamspeak. I love these weekends very much. Maybe even more than real vacation. So what did we play?
I´m still recovering from the shoulder injury from a few weeks ago. It´s not smart to rush recovery, so I took the time I needed. I did play this week, but I already feel my muscles when I play for several hours. Obviously, the more passive the game, the longer I can play.
Next weekend I’ll be at a lan party with my friends. I know most of them will be playing Modern Warfare 2, which I won’t. I can’t play any kind of shooter or first person game without getting a terrible headache after ten minutes. I do hope we can play some other games, like Magicka, Tower Wars, Dungeon Defenders, Impire or SimCity. If no one wants to play with me, I’ll probably try to finish Dragon Age or another RPG.
So what did I play?
As you’ve noticed I haven’t posted anything for a while. Real life is what happened. My internet connection prevented me from playing Diablo 3 like a mad man. I mean, playing a hardcore barbarian with 450+ ping is a bit too hardcore for me.
That’s why I finished another play through of Dragon Age: Origins. This time the complete edition, so with all the DLC. But I’ve only finished the original campaign and the DLC quests there. I did manage to marry Alistair though (the main reason for playing again). I will (try to) finish the other campaigns and Awakenings soon.
Between my conquest of Ferelden, I celebrated my birthday, read a lot of books, went on a short vacation, rearranged my room and painted the walls. So I’ve been busy 🙂
