DC Universe Online

I got a buddy code from a coworker and finally started trying this game tonight! (Just what I need, another MMO to play!)

So far, I'm loving my character. I chose Batman as my mentor, Acrobatics for my movement type, and Staff specialization. The combat animations are beautiful, the starting mission is easy and informative without being annoying and forcing 'press W to move forward' down your throat. You can choose to play with a controller if you so wish- which is a nice bonus if you want to kick back in your chair and play an MMO with friends. If you're a DC fan, this game is probably worth at least a look! You get to interact with tons of your favorite DC characters, and the character customization is pretty extensive.

Some downsides.... it seems there are balance issues between Heroes and Villains on most of the realms, favoring Villains. The voice acting and narration are sub-par at best and you only have 6 power slots in your regular UI. Also, if you decide to play with friends, be aware that choosing different mentors will largely limit the amount of missions/quests you both can do together.

Currently, it's a pay to play game for 15 dollars a month, or you can buy time in larger increments for a slight discount. I'm not sure if I'll continue playing, as I'm still very much into WoW- but I'll keep you guys posted if this game is worth the time and money!

Movin' on Up

Fuck yeah. Who's got two thumbs and finally got a promotion at work?

d(^_^)b This bitch.

It's been a long two years, but I'm glad I'm starting to move up the ranks. With that, I got more overtime to work in the morning... there really isn't enough time in the day! ;_;

Weekend = More work

Yay! Monday marks the beginning of my weekend and I'm hoping I can get some shit done this time... Like usual, my apartment is a mess and there's little to no food in the fridge (no food due to being lazy rather than lack of funds). Also, I took on the task of making a few drawings for some friends... which has been coming along slowly. I'll be sure to post pictures once I have something worth posting. Heh.

For now... more comics.

Keeping busy as ever...

So I completed the commission for my friend- she and her fiancee wanted a 'chibi, silly, beach wedding invitation'.

Here's what I finally ended up with:

They both loved it- so I feel like it's a success, haha.

Going along with the chibi theme, I drew this out of boredom while waiting for my instance queue to pop. (Sometimes I hate being DPS....)

Also, I finally got my order in! I ordered Batman Year One and the Dark Knight Returns. <3 I still haven't read them- but I plan to start that tonight before I sleep.

Dat superman face....

New obsession...

So, it all started with my coworker lending me The Long Halloween. Since then, which was 2 weeks ago, I've been obsessed with Batman everything. Currently, I'm working on some horrible fanart and have ordered Year One and The Dark Knight Returns.

/f*cking excited

I found this... which I think is adorable. :3

So... I have yet to go see the new Tron movie, but I'm having a very Tron Christmas! Every year at work we do a decoration contest... and it's usually geek-themed. Our group is doing Tron and our arch-nemesis group is doing Batman.

Today I made some NutCrackers!

They're still drying... Right now I'm going to go paint some Lightcycles!
