In our spare time, we’ve continued to play Diablo 2: Resurrected.
I think that between the two of us, we have all of the characters that we could want, although if Bub wants me to make a barbarian or a paladin I would be open to making those for him and learning the basics on how to play them. Right now that’s outside my wheelhouse since I personally tend to play magic and support the most on MMOs, but if he wants me to, I’ll make those for him and then look into how to play them in such a way that it doesn’t wind up disastrous for everyone involved. This might be really amusing.
We might also get back into Diablo 3 on the PC, although that will probably not be until the craze surrounding Diablo 2 starts to die down. Who knows. As stated, whenever I have my way I make sure that we play with friends before we play with people that we don’t know, although the nature of the beast in Diablo games on Blizzard is that sometimes you can’t help that, because sometimes you have to party up with people that you might not know really well to get quests done or to do certain things. When it comes to MMOs, though, I go through phases where I personally want to play them a bit less than I had been playing them — the exception to this would be Bub, because I will gladly play with him (almost, within reason) whatever he wants to play, the only exception to that being if he ever cued that he wanted to play World of Warcraft. I think I’ve written in here about my reservations regarding that game in the past, and they still exist. To be frank though, I have reservations against pay-to-play MMOs in general and would never seek them out of my own volition unless something, somewhere, changed. I would rather pay once and be done.
In the coming months, I need to get a new cell phone (the battery in my current phone, which I use to keep in touch with all of our doctors, specialists, and the boys’ therapists is… degraded, and I need to be able to rely on it when we are out of the house), a new computer chair (Bub has spun in this one to the point that it is creaky and wobbly, and I wouldn’t want anyone sitting in it to fall out of it), and quite possibly a new computer desk. I’ve had the desk that I have now for quite awhile, and the wobbliness of it is inescapable.
