P1999 is alright, but it has some significant issues. It's fun for a lot of people, kudos to the team that runs it, and I won't bore you with some of the reasons why I don't play on P1999, but P1999 isn't for me.

Had fun on EZServer for a bit, until I found out about the RoA and what you have to do to progress later on. If you thought live EverQuest was a timesink, imagine being required to level up to 70... ONE HUNDRED TIMES (as well as do things like levelling every tradeskill to 300) in order to "power up" a ring (think it has like 10,000 HP and +500 tick regen at its max level) that's basically necessary for late and endgame.

Some claim that with ideal multiboxing setups and no competition they can get someone from 1-70 in under an hour, but you're still talking about ~100 hours. Per character. Under ideal circumstances. With PLing. Just for one requisite quest to get your ring boosted. And that's just one of the timesinks they put in. I won't even mention the barrel / chest quest.

Currently playing on TheHiddenForest and having a hell of a good time. Basically a huge revamp of EverQuest, ranging from total zone overhauls, to a new storyline, to MANY new quests, to custom loot. Retuned spells (pets are upgraded, for one thing), etc. I could go on and on about why I like the server, but it's by far my favorite of the emu servers. Lots of guilds, big community (not as big as P1999 of course), basically a great place. Imo it's sort of what a lot of people wanted EverQuest 2 to actually be. It's hardly perfect, but THF is by far the best emu server imo. People help each other out all the time, and there's everything from solo to group to raid content.

Also, imagine my surprise when at level 20 my group ran into new named mobs in Crushbone (already populated with new mobs) that Enrage, Flurry, etc. It's definitely good times.

Playing a bit more WoW than usual.

Sometimes playing nothing at all. Almost played a PS3 game, but then didn't feel like walking to the TV to turn it on.

Decided to buy Rift last week when servers initially went down. Eh, it's an okay game. Also been playing World of Warcraft and Perfect World. I've also been sleeping a lot since I just finished my semester last week. *grin*

Reading Kindle books like crazy.
and considering buying a PC game called Amnesia. Check out (big baby plays scary game). If you google that, you'll find video of someone getting really scared by going through a walk through. Very funny, but heads up for the language (PG-13 or higher).

P.S. Checking my credit card online daily. Oddly enough, I still haven't been charged for station cash that I bought at 1/2 price that bonus Saturday April 30th. Makes you wonder if they knew and threw in that 1/2 price day a few days before dropping the boom.

  • NecroVisioN
  • a 2 year old game from The Farm 51(1C), WW1 shooter. Is very cool with good graphics, playing at 1920x1080 with good response. ( AMD Phenom 9650 Quad-core @ 2.30 GHZ 4gig ddr2 with an overclocked GeForce 9600GT from Sparkle.) It has a free downloadable demo and cost $6.73 to download full game with install and iso from Amazon. has the chill factor of early DOOM and the attitude of Duke Nukem 3D, and has mob count liken to Serious Sam: The First Encounter, well almost. It is quite fun. But I played a lot of ID games and only missed Quake WARs. It has a decent story line and good cut scenes that you can skip. Most fun I've had since Fear was bugged and every mob in the zone agroed on zone in (died 16 times that night). the also have a prequel
  • (NecroVisioN: Lost Company
  • that is supposed to be a bit better in some aspects but is not yet on the cheap list.If you are Bored and have good broadband and patience for the 1 gig demo to download or the 10gig full version that is well way worth the $6.73 and is about an 8 hour download on a 3mps DSL line. Makes for a calming state of mind after all the fraud prevention cost and work to repair and protect me and my wife from the results of the hack attack. I been on EQ for close to 11 years, but still play the shooters. Oh yeah it is built on the
