Daily Thoughts 142: Alien Day! LV-426

Author's selfieI took off a couple days to work on projects for my MLIS class. I also took some breaks to play Heroes of the Storm. Yesterday they released the new update, including mega bundles of heroes for logging into the game, and a new cinematic.

Loads of fun!

Alien Day

I love the Alien franchise. It’s had its ups and downs, of course, what series doesn’t? I still enjoy them. Even my least favorite movies of the franchise have moments that I love.

I tuned in for the live Alien Day event on YouTube. It was fun, but the Alien: Covenant | Prologue: The Crossing was the best part.

Daily Thoughts 138: Heroes of the Storm

Author's selfie Almost two years ago Blizzard launched Heroes of the Storm. I played a few games, but haven’t really spent any time playing. As I near the end of my MLIS classes (other than the portfolio) one of the things I’m looking forward to having more time to do is play games. I have tons of projects I want to do from my massive reboot of my writing and publishing efforts, to library work (outside of my regular job), to coding and development projects.

And I want to have time to enjoy games, both of the tabletop and video variety. Blizzard is about to launch Heroes of the Storm 2.0. Since I haven’t played much at all, I’ll be starting essentially from scratch. Looking forward to spending some time in the Nexus!

 

Daily Thoughts 137: Favorite Games

A great many years ago, we embarked on great adventures with StarCraft, WarCraft II, and Diablo. Expansions and new games followed, eventually World of WarCraft and StarCraft II. It’s been a blast and these games have endured, remaining favorites.

Today we received a box of Blizzard merchandise. They’d had a Spring clearance sale with items 75% off. It’s been a fun evening. I’m looking forward to more flexibility in my schedule as I finish my MLIS classes. For the first time in a couple years, I have an active WoW account again. It’s going to be fun!
