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.
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).
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!
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.
Just another geeky girl getting lost in life & love
