  • Now while I am still playing World of Warcraft somewhat, I have decided I am gonna play Warhammer this week when it comes out. Half of my friends at least are too. So the experience will be fun.

    My only real trouble at first was what class to play. To decide this when playing with friends always choose last so you can see if you are gonna be the healer or the tank. Cause God only knows no one likes to be a team player in that department. Fortunately tanks are not a problem cause they are way badass in this game. So That means I have to heal. Not that I have a problem with that since my main WoW character since the game came out was a Paladin. Just that when I am finally thinking that I am going to the evil side means I can be a dps, the answer is still NO.WTF. But as I said before this game is badass. That was towards tanks, so obviously that means healers too. The shaman is kinda cool cause of every heal buffs your next damage spell and vice versa. But after testing him out in OPEN Beta I did not like him overall enough like I thought I would. So i went to the next healer. Zealot. That is like what I call a Shadow Preist who can heal. So there lays my descsion. And look I can still dps. Woot!

    So anyways more on this Warhammer stuff as it becomes relevant. Holla!
    Simple. My friend got his own WoW account and of course before he did I sent him an invite so I could get a free month. I know after three weeks of no WoW I have been playing a little here and there. Mostly just raids and a little PvP. Not an everyday thing so not that bad as you might think. But still I guess just cannot quit the beast that is WoW completely. Especially when all my friends play so like what am I to do?!?! If they were on different server sure, but we all the same. So flaakmonkey is in Azeoroth, shame shame, lol. Well it is only for another week or two cause I really am not gonna fork my own money for it I dont think. Just dont see that happening at the moment. >

    This pic says more than meets the eye. Wait no it does not. It just says what EA intros should say that most of us already know. EA is gay and will continue delivering disappointments for generations to come. I mean only those companies like Nexxon I believe it is called make games like this that are free in nature but to be the best you have to fork out real dough for best items. This model is truly only intended for people with money, aka rich little brats. So they ask their parent for money to get upgrades which shuts the kid up and does not require spending time with the runt. I myself cannot remember the last time I played or bought an EA game, because quite frankly they do not release anything of interest to me.

    Why am I ranting then? Simple. This game "did" appeal to me at one point. Being smart readers as you are I am sure you know when that point was.

    So anyways aside from long delayed Spore, this game made me think for a breif second thay EA was finally coming around a little bit back to reality of what a good game is. Bottom line I and so many of you were wrong. Oh well, guess that is why God allowed for compaines like id software, Blizzard and Valve to thrive. Am I wrong?
    Well I got my Gamerscore to over 1,000 finally. I know its like nothing now but it is something for someone who rarely plays. But since no WoW, what else is there to do? So like now I guess I hit it big and go for 5,000 before cheering again then maybe that is not even much these days who knows. But little key note Halo is easiest GS like ever.

    I guess the funniest thing about it is, that it is not my Xbox 360. I tell you the story real quick.

    I bought a Xbox 360 when I should have not but I had the actual money but not the actual money to spend, if you know what I am saying. Anyways like about little after a month of having it, I of course as you guessed needed money. So I sold it on Craigslist locally and some dude who I did not know at the time bought it. At the time I say cause later through a friend I already knew was friends with this guy. So he ends up staying over for a week and leaving his Xbox 360 here cause he still coming over almost everyday to the pad and I used y old account to play on it and achive this mildly awesome feat.

    Thanks Anders Buddy!!
    To fully utilize my PC I have to run Vista. As much as I dislike for no particular reason other than I just have never truly used it. So that aside after a backup and fresh install of Vista Business, I have to install a few drivers. What else is new. After that I give Aero a spin. I must say it was already done and not that intriguing to me cause I have used Linux and a distribution that could run Beryl. But I am glad that caught on to that idea. Widgets are alright I suppose, never really used them but the sticky one is great. I use sticky s on my comp monitor all the time for things, now I can remove the clutter.

    After A full days use or so I can really tell you if it bugs, me pleases me or what not. But I can already tell I am gonna like the performance cause XP could not utilize a Quad core, 10 gigs of ram computer.

    So check back for an official review of Windows Vista Business.
    One whole week without World of Warcraft. My goodness it feels pretty good too. I get more stuff done and seem o have more fun possibly. I know it sounds crazy being "sober" from a video game, but if you have played WoW you know what I am talking about. Let me tell you I have played Guild Wars before WoW for two whole years and felt lie I was playing an MMO where it hindered me from daily activities or made me want to ignore people and/or just have the urgency to always play that one and only game as if no other games were ever made.

    I will say the last year has not been that bad as it was the first to years but its still WoW. And it still has a little control of you. I guess all of the Blizzard game have a little of that as well as any good game sux you in for a month tops. But not WoW. Like I said I played Guild Wars to the extent of "24/7" as I could. But I never stopped wanting to do anything outside of it just to play it.

    Since then lots of reading up on some Java programming and studying for MCSA and MCSE certs. Benn playing some Xbox 360 which I cannot remember the last time I did cause its been a very long while though. Mass Effect is great!

    Either way if I do play again I am thinking like when the expansion comes out. I doubt any sooner at this point. We will all just have to wait and see.

    My name is Mike and I am a recovering WoW addict!! Lulz.
    So anyways another day without WoW. That makes like three, lol. So out of boredom with some friends I have picked up Diablo 2 again. Playing over TCP/IP is so fun, and brings me back to the day when that was hot technology we were using to play such an incredible game for its time. Things is though how much do I want to play it when I just reinstalled KOTOR 2 from a friend so I can play that for the first time. I know right, I only played the first one like two or three times. Decisions, decisions.

    Well for now Diablo 2 when my friends are over and KOTOR 2 when I am chilling until I beat it then another single player game to fill my gaming void that WoW has left me.

    Playing Diablo 2 as a Assassin is pretty hard for me since im so used to Sorceress.But my other two friends are Pally and Druid, so they were all like be Assassin for dps. And I am like, "I guess whatever I do not really care". BUT I DO!! Sorceress is so much easier for me. considering that is all I would play back in the day. Guess I will have to get used to it for now.

    On the other hand though in KOTOR 2 I always find it being easier to be good rather than evil, not sure why. Evil just like ruins the game although you have mischievous fun. And unlike Mass Effect were if you say a dark thing it means it. Cause Mass Effect its all like a semi-negative comment after you liked for it to say something worse like, " I am gonna jack you up!". It would say "You want to fight?" or something on the lamer side. But in KOTOR its like you get the reaction you were looking for. Just hard to keep alot of allies when going dark.
    The one thing I loved about the first one was Pazaak. I hear there is a different card game and am eager to play it. Pazaak Online is a game also available for download if you Google it. Brings back those good times in the bar.

    I just need to probably go back and play alot of games I have missed, whether it be from years ago or just the past few.
    Hard to tell these days when you do not have work the next day and stay up all the time with no particular bedtime. Having friends over and house sitting, playing WoW TCG, Laning Source and Blizzard games, playing Xbox 360, and just doing our own thing at times on the web. Such a blast eh?

    Not always if we do not leave then we are never sure what time is. Day or Night. Always jut like, “Hey, what time is it?” and some one will say something like. “3:00″. And no one half the time really think about it being am or pm unless we want to go somewhere or think of something to do outside the pad. Crazy living like that for a week.

    But this week I should have a job once again and make something of myself or least make some money and still do nothing for the time being. Either way I will let everyone know what it is I do when I do but not that do..do.
    Maybe it is and maybe it is not. But the other day my WoW account expired again and believe it or not I do not care. After playing for the last three years off and on (mostly ON), I think its time either for a long break or time to find another game to do in my spare time. I have my 70 Pally on Kel’Thuzad, who was my first character in which I have had a great time with but at this point considering I am a lazy dude and don’t have amazing gear just great/good it only makes me wonder why do I play if I am not very serious about this game. My 63 Warlock sits in solitude on Bleeding Hollow by himself cause I hate leveling and even though now he is in the Outlands were I actually don’t mind it, I still don’t level him cause I guess at the end of the day I hate to level. And then not to mention all the 20-31s I have back on my original server Blackrock. Another crazy thing is when I first started I wanted to be Horde, but my friend who got me playing by dragging me away from two years of Guild Wars, was Alliance so I did not want to play by myself and joined the Alliance side with my dwarf. So I have numerous horde from level 6-28. Its also kinda funny how I hate to level but will level twenty-something levels before realizing that. Go figure, ha!

    All in all if I do stay out for good this time there is always hope beyond the horizon. Age of Conan is coming and so is Warhammer Online. Or maybe I just go back to FPS, and RTS games. Who knows for sure. But either way WoW was yet another great game by Blizzard that I thoroughly enjoyed.
    Well I know its been awhile since my last post, but after a busy holiday I have manger to drop some things to make time for blogging again. Who gives a rats ass, you say? Well YOU if you are reading this.

    I have some new tools to keep posts steadily flowing. Like for instance, today's post is being written from my newly acquired iPod Touch. So shortly after this post you can veiw today's real post via my iPod Touch on my more recent activities. So in the meanwhile checkout till I get back to you with a story of dribble.
