My gaming adventures have taken a hit this year thanks to a significant upswing in my reading habits. I am still gaming, with Jade Empire, Bayonetta and Bioshock occasionally getting some pixel love and I'm playing FFXIII vicariously through Digitaltempest.

Meanwhile, in MMO land, I skillfully resisted the temptation to get back into FFXI after their new update and despite Raptr constantly letting me know when my friends are playing it. I attempted Tera again when it went F2P, but quickly came to the same conclusion as before. I'm still playing Guild Wars 2 on occasion. A daily here. A new mission there. The guild still has a blast every once in a while and I still appreciate the casual nature of the game that allows for such fun to be had. Casually. Someone is tempting me with talk if FFXIV, but I won't worry about resisting that temptation until the game actually comes out and I get a new computer that can handle all these games.

This weekend, I succumbed to peer pressure and updated SWTOR on my husband's PC. I want to tell myself that I didn't want to have to interrupt his World of Tanks gaming to play SWTOR, so I went and installed it on my PC too. Good thing Happy Bandwidth Day is coming up on May 1st. Yes, I know I said I was going to show Electronic Arts how I feel about their evil ways, but let's face it. I'm in love with Bioware. Bioware doing Star Wars? My first fandom? I just can't let morals stand in the way of such things.

So I am playing SWTOR again. Even better, I'm finally playing as the Twi'lek Imperial Agent I had always dreamed of playing. I adore the Agent storyline and still really wish this had been a single player game, but that's okay. All the backstabbing and shivving I am doing makes up for that. And as if they knew I was coming, they have gone and announced their long awaited customization patch! Change my appearance? Dye my armour? Oh you guys. You know the way to my heart.


This is my mindspill. Mostly about comics, books, video games, movies of the science fiction and fantasy leanings. Sometimes recipes and parenting stuff will sneak in, along with a real world rant or two.

I also write about geek culture at Women Write About Comics, and I review genre fiction at The BiblioSanctum.
