14 days 18 hours 47 minutes 20 seconds

14 days 18 hours 47 minutes 20 seconds. Has it really been that long? I don't regret a single minute of any of it. Many movies were watched and many podcasts listened to. It was enough time to watch Groundhog Day 200.06 times. And I watched it at least 20 times. It is truly an amazing movie. When ever I think back to my time of leveling, I will probably think of Un'Goro Crater whilst watching groundhog day. Even in my entire travels, I think that The Hinterlands is my favorite zone, followed closely by Westfall. I think Westfall only because it's got a sweet name and for nostalgia reasons. I think I watched almost every movie in my collection during my odyssey.

In case you missed it, that is my time it has taken to get me to 70 in World of Warcraft. I had doubts along the way. "Will I ever get an end-game character is any game?". My guy is level 52 out of 55 in Call of Duty 4. This was my first character to an End-game and now the game seems much bigger. When ever I'm in Azeroth, I'm sad. It's these zones that no one ever goes in, but which were once populated to the brim. Outland will soon be that way when everyone packs up and moves to Northrend. Azshara is a piece of shit zone, but it makes me sad I never see anyone there.

Well moving away from sadness and loss. Now that I have hit 70, there are a plethora of things to do. Right now, my main goal is to reach 375 fishing skill, so I can do dailies and make a fortune in conjunction with my cooking skill. I'm also doing some Battle Grounds, trying to grind for my Arena Season 2 gear, with is only honor points now. All of this before we go raiding. All of that is to help me make enough money to get my Epic Flying Mount. There is so much to do. It's almost overwhelming. I'm glad I have music I like enough to listen to for this whole time.

  1. WoW
  2. Rock Band
  3. Team Fortress 2

WoW is like learning a new language, apparently, because I understood only about a fifth of that post. I understand the yearning for a strong character all too well, however, which is the case with Oblivion, a game I should've beaten days ago...but I still have 126 sidequests left (estimated number pulled out of my ass). I'm only in the mid-40's on COD4, but I'm much worse than that. I almost always die the most in any given game. I mainly get points in domination by occupying checkpoints. Oh yeah, and my aim is atrocious. I play the dual analogue set up. Keyboard and mouse FTW!

Also, it's amusing that I'm still seeing articles in mainstream media asking "Is the Wii a fad?"

I love how out of touch the world of non-gamers is with the world of gamers.

On a side-note, yes, I'm online almost every night until 4 A.M. playing something...o.k....Oblivion. Prime playing hours are after the wife goes to bed around eleven until 4, when I can't keep my eyes open anymore. Nature wants me to sleep from 4 A.M. to 1 P.M. every day of Summer. It's science!
