The kitty is going out of town for the holiday, but first I did some quick game shopping. Bree at Massively posted a wonderful list of MMO deals.
Last night I bought the League of Explorers for Hearthstone, and this morning I added Warlords of Draenor for $12.50.
Now I have to decide what character to boost to 90: Priest, Death Knight, or just go with my 85 Druid, skipping Pandaria with her. Massively reported on new bear skins/models for Druid in the coming Legion expansion. Gnome hunters are also coming.
After playing F2P or B2P cash-shop games for the last two years, it seems so weird for developers to just give players things as part of the total default package. It’s like a breath of fresh air in a polluted world, like OOOH – I remember that.
So I’ve spent $133 on Blizzard games this year, and I’ve gotten back around $600 because Blizzard’s stock almost doubled in the same time period. So thanks, Blizzard.
Devilian now has a release date of Dec. 10!
I don’t know how far I’ll get into Devilian, but it’s a nice popcorn game with a unique flavor, sense of humor, good music, and good grouping and social tools. I hope the launch goes smoothly.
They are working on improving the race/gender lock problem. I imagine this issue will cost the developers more lost revenue by far than any other shortcoming.
