Frustrating

After trying to use World of Warcraft as a reward for being responsible and balencing my checkbook, doing my laundry, and starting grad school applications, it was a touch frustrating for the server to refuse to let me to login. (Though I was persistent and eventually succeeded)

Crazy kind of urgency

Now you have me thinking, I should get online with, so I could spend more time with, a friend of mine.

However I doubt, I would be on about, the same time you were so, I figure I will just save my money.


Bad poetry by me.

Given my recent abuse of myself by too much gaming, I'm not sure if I should pickup one of the MMORPGs.

Though maybe if I limited myself to just the overlap in our schedules that would help me behave.

(I managed to get into the the last beta/advertising round. so its currently free until the game ships on the 23rd.)

Yeah I know. I was trying to avoid it because I didn't want to have to buy a new video card. Also WoW was easier to try because this was their last beta (AKA attempt to tempt people away from EQ2 because it shipped first) which I could play for free.

I have learned though that my video card is the bottom of the line card that can play EQ2, and so might have to go try.

What's the death penalty like in EQ2?

ah.. but some of the new video cards are just plain cool :)

I am playing on my old card and it is running it fine...I did beta WoW and wasnt as impressed with graphics, or gaming.

Death Penality isnt too bad, it is more that you gain debt you need to free up rahter than loose exp, but it is shared if you are grouped....

I really like the new dynamics of Eq2... not nearly as hack and slash as Eq1, much more quest orientated.

If you're interested in playing with us lemmie know, and I will give you server/character information. We also have up a teamspeak server for ease of use :)

My specs are like a 2.8 CPU, 1.5 RAM, and I think a 128 vid card, although I would need to check on the last one. Oh.. and the water has it's own engine and it is REALLY pretty.

Also Eq2 is only 14.99 which surprised me, I anticpated them trying to rip users out of 20.00 a month...

I know the EQ2 screenshots look really pretty. I really like the moon with what looks like an aurora around it.

What's a teamspeak server? And I may be interested in playing with you. However I'm not allowed to even set foot in the game store until after I complete my grad school applications. (Otherwise I run the risk of not finishing them by the deadline).

Hmm... it seems that my will collapsed and I now have an EQ2 account.

So, which server are you on?
