While most of my friends are playing the SW:TOR beta, or going on about Skyrim, the game I’ve been playing most this weekend has been Glitch. It surprised me too. I had taken a bit of a break from the game because I was working on a skill that would take 9 days to complete, and I lost the motivation to log in. This weekend however, the urge was there and so far it’s lasted all weekend. My little ‘stargrace’ has been busy in-game. I worked on a lot of mining and then I noticed there were some seasonal items around – the gardening vendors now sold pumpkin seeds which are used in some seasonal recipes as well as pumpkin carving! You can drop these cute little items outside (or inside) your home, and even teach them phrases. The packages of pumpkin seeds claim that they are only around during certain holidays, so I decided to load up on them (I bought 100) and store them in my cabinet for when all of those pumpkin moods over come me.
I’ve got 45 skills under my belt, am level 18 (almost 19) and have 137 achievements, which is really nothing in the grand scheme of things. Keyrings have also been added to the game so that you can give your friends a key to your house, they can come visit you at any time of the day or night whether you’re home or not. Beware though, this also gives them access to your cabinet, so if you don’t want your friends rummaging through it and stealing your 100+ packages of pumpkin seeds, you may want to warn them ahead of time. Or at least don’t give out keys to random strangers.
Next on my learning path? Alchemy! I love the creation process of Glitch. At first I focused on animal related skills so that as I wandered it would be easy to make money no matter where I was (animals are found pretty much everywhere) and since then I’ve focused on mining, as well as some gardening. Now I want to be able to create things, and we’ll see how far I get with it.
If you’d like to add me to your friends list in game please feel free! Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself.
