I used to game a lot, you know, back in the day. My gaming time done got so short that my skills ain’t where they need to be to be online, you know what I’m saying? I just got that Xbox One. I gotta get my skills back, up the par to call myself a gamer.
Diablo I: The Return
Once upon a time, I was a new teacher! Full-time faculty at a small college, young for such a position so I thought but they called me with the job offer.
At the time, I had an office that was huge but it was in a back hallway with little need for traffic. I had a couch, mini-fridge and a computer. I got in the habit that I picked up from the other teachers, we’d leave our office doors open when we were on campus.
I put Diablo I on my computer, it was fun to play. Being new, I wasn’t assigned to a ton of committees nor had my work-load grown like it would in the future. However, I was a mentor which means I had certain students assigned to me.
You already know what happened. I’d return from class to see my office darkened, the sound turned up and “my” students hanging out and playing Diablo 1. All of the time! Totally fun, I had a great time.
Blizzcon has promised that Diablo 1 will return as a new part of D3, how cool is that? I’d love to go play that game again.
They say that every teacher remembers their first class. I remember mine very well; playing Diablo in a back hallway in my new office. Good times, good times.
