I’m going on vacation tomorrow, and so unless I get really bored and/or really sick and can’t do anything with my family, this blog is going to be silent for the next week.
But before I go, I just wanted to make a quick adjustment to yesterday’s Trials Fusion impressions. I’d downloaded and played the game on Tuesday night, and so Wednesday morning I’d made mention of the excruciatingly long load times after races. I played a little bit last night, though, and those long loading times are gone. Like, completely gone. So maybe the servers weren’t working right, or something – you can never tell with Uplay- but in any event, consider that particular demerit scratched out.
I’ve been filling up my iPad with some stuff to play – Hitman Go, Warhammer Quest, FTL, Shadowrun, and then finally Hearthstone, which people are flipping out about.
I’m a little concerned about playing Hearthstone, though, specifically because my Blizzard account is totally screwed up. Back when I was addicted to Diablo 3 on my PC, I’d used the iPhone’s Authenticator app for some added security. Problem is, the original iPhone that the app was on broke, so I never had a chance to formally remove it or de-authorize it or what-have-you; and when I tried logging in a few months ago, I had to re-download the Authenticator and it was never able to sync up with my account. So then I tried removing the Authenticator entirely from my account, which is something that apparently requires a passport and possibly a lawyer.
I’ll need to get that problem resolved eventually – there is a part of me that really wants to check out the recent Diablo 3 expansion, either on PC or on PS4 – but in the meantime, I might just have to create a dummy account and hope I don’t screw anything up too terribly.
Anyway. That’s my problem, not yours. I’ll see you all on Monday, April 28. Maybe I’ll have my Vita back by then!
