IntPiPoMo 2017 – 14/50

IntPiPoMo 2017 – 13/50

Catching Up on BlizzCon

I did end up buying the virtual ticket for BlizzCon this year but because so many things were all happening that weekend (husband home for a visit, extra life, etc) I didn’t get a chance to watch a single presentation, so I followed along on twitter and picked up what tidbits I could.

First of all, I was incredibly pleased to hear that the Hogger costume won first place. I follow the creator on twitter and watching the costume process was incredible. There’s a whole lot of talent there.

Of course I heard about the new Vanilla servers – people have wanted this for ages, and I’m glad they’re going to get it. Will I play? Probably. It’s not a big deal to me though. I don’t lament for those days gone by like I did with the EQ2 progression servers. It will be something neat to check out and that’s about it.

The next expansion has been getting a fairly luke warm reception from friends in my circles, and I haven’t really decided how I feel yet. Most of them are tired of the same ‘Alliance vs. The Horde’ mentality, and would rather see something new. None of the expansion details grabbed at them like artifacts did in the past (or garrisons). I was hoping to see something big like player housing or maybe news that pet battles would be moved to mobile. New races are fun though and I’m sure I’ll make a new character or two to check them out as well as the lore behind them.

I’m enjoying my time in WoW quite a bit. I don’t get a whole lot of time to play, but I’ve been working away at those older achievements and leveling up my gnome warrior. I still prefer to play Horde, but bounce between things. It’s still quite some time before my partner in crime returns to game (3+ months) but there’s lots for me to do on my own.

Anyone else have some thoughts about the announcements? Let me know in comments, and as always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!

An Extra Life Weekend

This weekend was one that I certainly won’t be forgetting any time soon. The Combat Wombat Extra Life team did amazing, and almost reached our total goal. I had a pretty low threshold for my own goal, but I reached it and that makes me happy. After all, every little bit helps. I was raising money for the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation – a place very near and dear to my heart since Leo was in the NICU for three weeks after being born and if we had any issues he would have been sent there. They do great work. Anyway, I streamed some RimWorld and then my husband donned his Daddy costume and played Dream Daddy: A Dating Sim on stream. You can catch the videos of that over on my twitch page and my YouTube channel. It was hilarious.

I’m so proud of our community. We don’t always play the game games or have the same interests but it was absolutely amazing to come together for an event like this. When I wasn’t streaming or watching my husband be silly I tuned in to the other Wombats and friends who were participating. You all did wonderful and I hope everyone had fun.

There’s still time to donate over at my page, and you can also check out the Combat Wombat team page for progress. I’m already looking forward to playing next year. I did intend to get some Fortnite played but I had to quickly change my plans because my Llama Bean had other ideas. Ideas that involved him sitting on my lap, and typically that means one hand to hold him and the other hand to game with. Fortnite is one of those games where you need both hands.

Did you raise money for Extra Life? How was your experience? Let me know in comments, and as always, happy gaming no matter where you find yourself!

Oh, and another HUGE thank you to everyone who donated. You guys, are amazing. This smile I have today is because of you.
