It was a very, very rough 2012 for me and I hope that 2013 will have a much better outlook as we move forward.
Some quick things of note from this past year. We tried out a few different table-top systems, and we've enjoyed most of them. I've found some old online MMOs that are perhaps better now than they were previously. I just today discovered a Diablo 2 clone that is being produced by some fine folks down in New Zealand - and that is what I want to spend a little bit of time on right now.
Path of Exile is the Diablo 2 clone in question. It's currently in open beta testing, so if you enjoyed D2 and you want to have that same kind of fun without all of the Blizzard BS, go download the client and get going. I think the total amount of time it took to download, install, and update was about 20 minutes. It's not like you'd be downloading/installing/updating World of Tanks for Pete's sake.
If you haven't yet gone to their website to look at the game, please do so. And watch the introductory video!
