His many days of faithful badgering paid off last weekend—Han finally got me to play Diablo II on the LAN at home, and I was completely HOOKED. Su Fei got in the act too, so our merry band consisted of Alana, a seriously tenacious Assassin (Su Fei), Albion, a chilled-out Necromancer (Han) and Lynx, a panicky fire-and-ice Sorceress (me lah). I’ve never played a game like this before where you get to mold your character’s abilities based on the kind of skills and attributes you gradually assign to him or her as the game progresses. Although the game has a running storyline, all you really do is wallop monsters of all shapes and sizes, scour the ground for loot and level up your character so you can wallop hardier monsters.
We started at about 10pm on Sunday night, and *poof*, before we realised it, the clock’s hour hand had crept to 4. Consequently both of us only woke up in time for lunch at 1. Ah, to re-live our university student lifestyles once again (albeit for only one night—can’t let this happen too often…)!
Trying to get Lionel to join us to play this weekend.
