Well, my 4-day weekend has come and gone.  I didn’t attempt the Rock Band 3 achievement as I had wanted.  I just didn’t have that much time to devote to it at one time.  Perhaps on my next long weekend, which may not be until after Labor Day.

I did, however, play some necro on Diablo 3.  The class itself is really fun, but the server issues kept me from playing as long as I wanted.  I was too often disconnected in the worst spots, which means it took me far longer than it should have to get halfway through the first act.  I did reach level 23, but I could have gone a lot farther if not for those disconnections.  I suppose it’s to be expected on the first (long) weekend after release, but it’s still disappointing.

I did pick up a few cheap games during the Steam summer sale, and I spent a bit of time bouncing from game to game there.  Notables are Oafmatch, Zuma’s Revenge and T-Kara Puzzles.  Expect reviews for those in the future.

Tomorrow it’s back to the grind, but only for three days!  Then it’s the weekend again!

4-day weekend

I am beginning a 4-day weekend and I have some ambitious gaming plans.  First, I am going to start a Necromancer in Diablo 3.  The patch came out on Tuesday, but I haven’t had time to play it yet.  I’ll probably be level 70 by Tuesday.

Next, there is an achievement in Rock Band 3 that I haven’t completed.  It is to play all 70+ core songs (not downloads) in one sitting.  I am going to complete that at some point this weekend.  I’ll keep you posted with my progress.

I’ve also been into Fallout 4 again, and I hope to push the main story line fairly far ahead as I’m curious as to how this ends.  If you haven’t played this one, I recommend it!  Both Fallout 3 and 4 are excellent games with amazing story telling.
