Thanks to an unexpected sick day this week, I managed to get some console time with ‘Diablo III’, something I’ve been unable to do for several months now (though buying ‘Spider-Man’ probably set me back more than the general “not having time” problem.)  In that time, I also managed to finally complete a coveted set of armor, the Firebird’s Finery, with serious in-game bonuses for my wizard.  It’s a quest I’ve been working off-and-on since August, and I’ve put in a lot of hours in various dungeons trying to find all six pieces, a quest complicated by accidentally destroying the gloves and being unable to find a replacement, because I’m an idiot.  Still, it’s a lot of effort to go to for an imaginary power boost, leading to today’s Nephalem query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) also filled all ONE HUNDRED Create-A-Wrestler slots in my last WWE video game, including complicated backstories because I’m me, asking:  What’s the most video game hard work you’ve ever done for a specific goal?

Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
