Destiny of Velious

This is going to be a long-ass post about EverQuest II and the coming expansion. I am just way to excited and need to get it all off my chest. If gaming is not your thing, please ignore this post 😉

SOE had their Fan Faire at last and announced the next Everquest II expac, “Destiny of Velious” (they also mentioned EQNext as well, but that is a different post entirely). It’ll be released in February 2011.They have promised a full goodie bag; hundreds of new quests (oh Everquest II, my Evercrack!),  new instanced dungeons and raid instances, new PvP battlegrounds, one massive contested dungeon, and flying mounts (Holy crap, Batman!). See press release here.

There are of course various places to see the video from Fan Faire, and other then the clip below *(points* Look! Click! Watch!) this interview with EverQuest II Executive Producer David Georgeson on TenTonHammer.com is worth a look.

Of course I am all over this. I can’t wait, I want it now. Naaaa-oooowh! I wish they could have released it in November, as most of the expansions. It happens to correlate with my birthday, and it’s sort of a tradition for me to take a week off from work and just game (best B-day pressie ever, from me, to me, k’thanks).

Ok, a few points and thoughts:

Cheese Pirate

 

Cheese Pirate is a really sweet webcomic based on EverquestII, and if you have been playing for a couple of years there are a lot of references that makes you smile and laugh. And in general I think every MMORPG gamer can relate.  Totally worth putting an animated gif on my blog for the first time in years for this!

PreHöst – ProHöst

För mig Ă€r glaset halvfullt om jag fĂ„r sĂ€ga förhöst istĂ€llet för sensommar. I Sverige fĂ„r man ju inte gnĂ€lla nĂ€r det Ă€r för varmt, men jag ÄR faktiskt inte sĂ„ himla bra pĂ„ det hĂ€r med sommar. Det Ă€r för varmt för att göra nĂ„got annat Ă€n att lata sig, och det Ă€r vĂ€l för all del trevligt, men inte allt för lĂ€nge.

Jag tycker jag skriver ett inlÀgg varje Är om hur fantastiskt det Àr nÀr hösten börjar, hur mycket man orkar med, vilken skaparglÀdje och energi man fÄr nÀr det blir svalare ute, alla planer och projekt man fÄr lust att sÀtta igÄng med. SÄ nog om det, denna gÄng.

Mer om planerna istÀllet!  \o/ Vad hÀnder i höst?

  1. Jag Äker med Jed till Skottland i september. Sen Äker vi ner till England och hÀlsar pÄ hand förÀldrar.
  2. Jag spelar en himla massa Everquest 2. Med ny dator, tvÄ skÀrmar och en extra speldator Àr det hemskt kul. Och nya expansionen kommer i februari.
  3. Jag pysslar en massa och fÄr förhoppningsvis tid att göra klart nÄgra planerade smycken och fotoalbum.
  4. Jag lÀr mig mer om min kamera och tar kanske en eller tvÄ serier portrÀttfoton
  5. Det Ă€r NaNoWriMo i november (duh)! Jag funderar pĂ„ att göra nĂ„got vĂ€ldigt cheezy och helt enkelt skriva en berĂ€ttelse om en av mina karaktĂ€rer i EQ2. Jag kan till och med illustrera med Screenshots 😉
  6. LÀgenheten, den ska mysifieras, jag vill ha in möbler som JAG gillar! Och bilder pÄ vÀggarna. It is gonna happen, Foh Shoh!

Observera att detta Ă€r planer UTÖVER att spela massor pĂ„ min X-box, promenera i höstvĂ€dret, mysa med pojkvĂ€nnen, dricka rödvin, laga god mat och njuta av livet sĂ„ dĂ€r i största allmĂ€nhet =)

Die, Billy, die!

I really wish I could sew. Then I would make this doll. And then I would hide under my friend Tricks bed and scare the living crap out of her. I know she’s appreciate it. After a while.

Billy has been the subject of a lot of grief, anger, frustration, hate
 I remember when the Nektulos Forest zone was a bit more populated and you would hear people randomly screaming: ”I HATE BILLY!” a couple of times a day. Now, almost 6 years after the release of the game, it is something of a battle cry, and you can always scream this in any chat channel. You will always get a couple of people screaming it with you for sympathy.

This is a haiku written by Spindle from the Antonia Bayle server:

How I hate Billy
Now he comes in a plushie
I want one now too

More people have made Billy dolls, like Morianne of Maren Maria Bears, and she even made him a girlfriend:

Billy, creepy doll extraordinarie
Billynda

And for those who are not familiar with the magic moppet Billy, this is the guy… Damn I hate that little bugger!

Die, Billy, die!

 

Dual-boxing

Last year my friend Linus gave me an extra screen he had stuffed away in his basement, an offer a dual-boxer like me could not possibly pass up. Of course it took me ages to even get to a point to set it up properly, but I built a new computer not long ago, and Jed helped me out a lot, so here I am, with two screens on my tiny desk, and I am NOT going back. Ever.  I am telling you, people, this is the shit. I don’t know why it took me so long. I guess sometimes you need someone to boss you around a bit and give you a shove in the right direction.

I have the two screens connected to my new computer, but the secondary one is also connected to my old computer. So I can dual-box with both game accounts on one computer or on two separate ones. Or I can craft with one account on one while I harvest on the other. I dunno, I have loads of fuzzy plans. It’s all good.

Problem is my old computer sounds like an old tractor, compared to my new one (my new one is quiet like a ninja!), so it’s not all that tempting even turning it on. I’ll end up buying a gaming lap top, I just know it.

"Hellooooo Sneakish!" "Helloes helloes, Aniara!" *paws waving*

FörÀndringar

Jag har tĂ€nkt byta domĂ€n pĂ„ min blog hur lĂ€nge som helst nu men aldrig kommit till skott. Det finns alltid ursĂ€kter som har med ”tid” att göra, eller med ”rĂ€tt tillfĂ€lle”. Men nu Ă€r det gjort! Det nĂ€talias jag dragits med de senaste Ă„ren har nu blivit mitt nya domĂ€nnamn, och folk som kĂ€nner mig in-game kanske kan hitta hit, vem vet. Jag skulle gĂ€rna skriva mer om mina Ă€ventyr i spelen jag spelar till exempel, sĂ„ denna adress kĂ€ndes mer lĂ€mplig.

Jag har funderat lite och kommit fram till att jag bytt blog relativt ofta genom Ären. Det har gÄtt i cykler, precis som en tvÀttmaskin. Jag lider stÀndigt av behovet att göra om, göra nytt, börja om frÄn början, och nÀr hösten nÀrmar sig vaknar alltid denna stÀd- och organiseringsmanin till liv.

FörÀndring Àr pÄ gott och ont. Oftast Àr det bra. Ibland Àr det skrÀmmande. Oftast Àr det spÀnnande. Det finns de som aldrig förÀndras.
