I was thinking of topics for my blog and thought of this one so here it is.

Q: What do you do while you game?

ex. listen to music, chat on vent/skype/whatever, watch a movie on your other monitor, read otehr blogs, research quests/item/bosses.

Just an idea for a shared topic in the future.

I like to watch Hockey. I listen to Canucks games on raid nights =).

I listen to music and usually have Vent going.

Then, of course, it gets weird, because the random country song will come up on my playlist, I'll talk, and then I have to explain why I'm listening to Hank Jr. singing "There's a Tear In My Beer". Then, right after I'm done 'splaining, In Flames comes on.

As if things weren't confusing enough about me, now you have to go and toss that in. :P

On the other hand, he did roll Horde. And not just any Horde, but a big freakin' Tauren. AND...he uses a gun.

I'm so confused.

My goodness, I feel inadequate now. What I do while playing WoW is... Play WoW.

I'm not good enough to multi-task. :)

I'm with ya, Leaf. Although, if the Cleveland Indians are playing, I may have the TV on as well for some background noise and to catch a glimpse of the score from time to time. Otherwise, it's just me, my minion and some pew-pewing (while trying to steer clear of the wife/baby aggro).

I listen to music... even when not playing WoW. And sometimes I watch TV.

OK, now I think about, technically speaking, I've been scanning my parents' old transparencies from the 60s while playing today. But I'm rarely actively doing both at the same time - do a quest, put slides on to scan, do a quest...

I... pretty much just play wow. Talk on vent. Read forums when I'm flying.... but everyone is usually focused around wow.

Considering I have no tv or radio in my room, I used to maybe put on my iPod while playing. I don't pay attention to it, though, and always forget it's on.

Now that I have a new (read: sexy) computer that can multitask, I imagine I'll be surfing the web a lot during down times and flights, etc. And I won't stop pretending to listen to music while I play.

I don't know that I can write an entire blog about it, but generally I have the TV on or a movie in. I often miss most of whatever is on, but it's nice to have the background noise on.

I'm with Matticus on this one if one of my teams is playing I'm half listening to it. Especially hockey and baseball because it is easier to tell when there is a big play brewing so I can divert more attention that way until the action is over. I'm also usually listening for the Fire Department to tone out 'cause fire fighting is definitely more fun then playing WoW.

Likewise really, at most I might be eating or chatting with someone on aim/msn. If I'm questing I sometimes tab out to look up the quest, otherwise if I'm playing wow I'm... playing wow. Especially if I'm raiding, I have to close Firefox because my computer is sissy and lags a bit when 25 people and a boss get together to spam sparkly skills. Don't really have time in between pulls to do much else anyway, might be able to squeeze something in while everyone else buffs before a boss (warlock here) maybe.

If I'm raiding or instancing: music on in the background, talking with the raid/party on TS.
If I'm grouping for quests: usually talking with guildmates (including the party) on TS.
If I'm soloing: usually listening to music, or voicechatting via iChat with my best friend (who lives on the other side of the world from me).
If I'm grinding really tedious stuff: voicechatting as above, otherwise listening to podcasts if said best friend isn't awake.

Plus occasionally chatting on AIM/MSN, depending on how demanding my current WoW activities are.

I actually had a post in mind about this - not sure if I still have material for it after this! :)

Audiobooks.

Seriously. When grinding/leveling/questing... Audiobooks are amazing.

Grinded out my Kurenai rep for talbuks that way. Wasn't bad, except my lightning bolt finger started getting sore from all the button mashing.

I rock the second monitor, so I tend to have Wowhead and guild forums up, along with whatever else catches my fancy to read on the side. I find music distracting when I'm raiding (I really like to hear the sound of my casts and TS clearly), but I will read stuff during downtimes.

Sometimes my second monitor is dedicated to the RSS reader, so that I can catch up on what you all have been saying recently!

I play WoW. > >

IF I am sitting in Shatt waiting for something to happen, I browse forums, Digg, Slashdot, etc.
