I'm just curious to see what everybody will be doing this week before beta 4 starts...

I'm personally planning on cleaning and organizing my house, getting any last minute shopping that needs to get done out of the way so I don't need to leave the house so much starting next week...

Anybody have any ideas of things that would be a good idea to do this week?

I need to get a few more chapters done for my story. Once I'm finished writing a few more, I won't feel as guilty about taking the weekend off to play. I'll write some more between phase 4 and early access, and then try to juggle more chapters until the story's finished. Cue waiting around for literary agents to email me back while I play FFXIV.

I have something to do on that Saturday night, and my general plan anyway is to take it slow, so it's not like I'm going to shut myself off from the world...

However, I'll have the client downloaded already; I'll talk to my wife about it so she's not TOO upset if I decide to play for longer than normal.

Nothing too crazy I guess.

Reading a book. Going to movies to see Elysium. Watering the plants inside and out for friends who are away. Sitting outside and getting sun. Shopping and cleaning. Making phone calls to family.

Oh, and probably watching old videos of FFXIV from Beta and setting up macro lists beforehand.

I just finished the Survivor + mode of the Last of Us so that's what I've been doing lately. I'm trying to figure out what old game to play that I never had time to play much. The Lord of the Ring game I picked up for 19.99 is looking like a winner. Either that or more Skyrim. As for my FF fix, I'm playing the DS version of FF3.

Been grinding my way through the MGS series chronologically, catching up on Peace Walker as I've never had a Vita/PSP.

Kids love watching me clearing levels, holding all the guards up with a Bananna. Almost done with the Monster hunts, some of those tank levels are **** if you're trying for no kills.

The last few days I'll be clearing brush, mowing the lawn, and taking care of any other big things I've been procrastinating on while I can.

oh yes, and reading Larry Correia's "Warbound" Good old detective Noir with a bit of "fun" added. still a while off from another "Monster Hunter International" installment.

Going stir crazy.

Seriously though, I'll probably be playing a good bit of Civ5 over the next few days.

I have raids in WoW on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Then its gonna be time to tell my WoW friends "goodbye for a while" sadly. (The leader is going to have to find a new officer to fill my spot as well. =\)

So I guess: Civ5, WoW raids, and loads of impatience.

Ah, the week before a new MMO release is a perfect time to re-watch Sword Art Online, an anime that is about an MMORPG release.

Anyone here likes Anime? Only the cool ones? Will you watch an awesome Anime with English subtitles? (Also coming in English, see below.)

Screenshot

This series starts off with a new Virtual Reality MMORPG release in Japan. Shortly after the game launches, the players find out there is no log-out button. If fact, the VR helmet cannot be removed at all and will kill any person who tries to remove it. It also fries your brain if you die in-game. The players are directed to complete the 100 level dungeon to be released from the game.

The main character turns out to be a beta tester who has a bit of inside info on - Ok, stop the bus. If you are interested so far you can go watch it here:

http://swordartonlineepisodes.com/sword-art-online-episode-1/
or here:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/sword-art-online

I would not bother to suggest this if this wasn't an incredibly entertaining series. Even more so for a group of MMO fans (with really good taste, of course) at this moment in time. I really hope at least a few people here give it a shot and enjoy it as much as I did.

Got my new pc and had problems, so sent it back for repairs. Covered under warranty, but it won't make it back for at least 2 weeks. So it's looking like work and Skyrim. I pre-ordered the PS3 version of ARR 2 months ago so I can play on both platforms. So glad that I did. Was VERY excited to see what my new pc could do though. *cry myself to sleep*

Only Wii game I have left is The Last Story, and honestly I don't really play it much. Ni No Kuni is sitting unwrapped though, hard to justify buying yet another game.

You said Ni No Kuni. *sigh*

I am about half-way through that game, and my kids beg me to play it all the time. I feel that it teaches a lesson about repetitive Grinding of EXP in 2013.

Take this game that has, original Studio Ghibli Art, a wonderful story, beautiful cell-shaded animation, above par voice acting, absolutely unique and colorful characters and then -
Hide all of the story advancement behind about 2-3 hours of required, repetitive grinding in each and every zone.

2-3 hours of grinding, you say? ****, I used to grind 12 hours and love it! Used to. Sorry, 2-3 hours of the exact some mobs is boring as **** in 2013. I could stand it for the first 3 hours, then again for another 3 hours, then again for another 3 hours, then again for another 3 hours, then again for another 3 hours, then again for another 3 hours, then again for another 3 hours -

And thats were I am stuck to this day.

Oh yeah, speaking of anime, I've caught up on a few shows I've been sleeping on. Trigun, Chobits, Fruits Basket, and Fullmetal Alchemist. Gippal from FFX-2 reminds me so much of Vash the Stampede. Vash just needs an eyepatch and they'd be indiscernible.

I only have Engineering to get from 1 - 600. I still have about 6 classes not at 90 though. Most are in the 87 range though with full rest. I heard next expansion will be 90 - 100.

That's the first I've heard of that, but ya, they kinda accidentally gave away that the next xpac is 100 when they announced the BOA weps off of Garosh. They have a level cap of 100, and since BOA items usually are only good for the next xpac of content, that would mean the next level cap is 100.

Last week of my summerjob before the semester starts in September. Also I've been having wrist issues since the beginning of this year, but I've been getting better so I just started playing some League of Legends again last week and I am really enjoying it since it was so long since last time I played (and also because I immidietly mute anyone who starts flaming... which as I am sure a lot of you know the MOBA genre community does a lot haha). I suck and lose a lot, but it is fun so it makes the wait a little easier. :)

Oh and I suppose learn how to drive a forklift and then run people over.

You're doing it wrong ^.~ Are you fighting the Toki-Toki mobs or whatever they're called? There's 3 progressive sets of them through the game which give mad XP and are excellent for growing your pokemon, er familiars when you grow them. Unless you're using the wrong familiars the game is pretty easy.

Played through Ni No Kuni and The Last of Us so far. Just picked up Tales of Xillia which is pretty fun so far, but something just seems off story telling wise. Maybe because I've never played a Tales game before? Still good overall though, especially the battle and shops systems.

I'm trying not to buy anymore games, but I keep hearing Tales of Xillia is good. It's bad enough that the wait for ARR has me bouncing from Skyrim to NCAA Football 14 to FF9. AND I'm reading the Malazan Books of the Fallen series (great epic fantasy). I really don't need anything else on my plate but I'm curious.

I am doing nothing different. Nothing I SAY!

I want this to fit into my schedule and not the other way around. Too many times I burned out of a game by binging on it through beta/first month. Going to try something completely different and see what happens.

If fact, the VR helmet cannot be removed at all and will kill any person who tries to remove it. It also fries your brain if you die in-game. The players are directed to complete the 100 level dungeon to be released from the game.

The main character turns out to be a beta tester who has a bit of inside info on - Ok, stop the bus. If you are interested so far you can go watch it here:

I would not bother to suggest this if this wasn't an incredibly entertaining series. Even more so for a group of MMO fans (with really good taste, of course) at this moment in time. I really hope at least a few people here give it a shot and enjoy it as much as I did.

I loved Sword Art Online. Good stuff. I'll be flying to San Antonio the weekend of P4, Then hopefully the week before launch I'll get all the chores I've been too distracted to do done.
