What E3?

Essentially nothing has changed about my short-term outlook on video games as a result of E3 2012. It may as well not have even happened. All three platform holders's conferences were a bust for anything I care about. The list I made in the last post can stay as is.

Let's put that worthlessness behind us. I've been playing a whole lot of Diablo III over the last few weeks, and I'm currently half an experience bar away from level 60 on my wizard, and a mere act and a half away from Inferno. The real money auction house went up yesterday; and my first round of auctions is ticking down to rejection right now. I'd be overjoyed if any of them sold, but being that they're all middle-of-the-road items in every sense, I'm doubting there's much interest. Additionally, prices are still settling into some sort of readability, so it's entirely possible that pricing I made yesterday afternoon looks astronomically out of whack today. If all goes well, I should hit 60 tonight. I hesitate to guess when I'll hit Inferno, though. I think I may run into a gear check before then. We'll see, though. I believe I'm pretty well kitted out for the time being.

I've also made some time to play Dota, as well. I finished up my 20 game self-imposed trial period learning Omniknight, and I'm trying to decide on my next hero. So far I've done Windrunner and Bounty Hunter in addition to Omni. The first two are lane pusher/ganker types while the latter is support, so I guess I should probably try a carry of some sort, next.

I need to get around to something else once I hit a comfortable farming pattern in Diablo. I plan to balance that with regular Dota and a third pillar, which ideally would be a game I could progress through to the end. I might not stress too much about finding one until our upcoming move is done with, though. We're moving out of our one-bedroom apartment into a bigger two-bedroom townhouse. Maybe I'll get lucky and the commute will turn out to be a bit shorter!
