Filling the Gap : Results

poll results

Here are the results from the poll I included with the my Filling the Gap post where I asked – What game should I play the trial for? Age of Conan got out to an early lead, but once Warhammer passed it, it maintained the lead. Sadly City of Heroes and Vanguard each got no votes – poor lonely MMOs!

So I will be playing the Warhammer trial soon, and I’ll let you guys know what I think!

Tweet Tweet!

twitterI’ve been hearing about this tiwtter thing more and more lately. It seems that you can scarecly go anywhere on the web these days without finding twitter links. So today I decided to try and do a little more digging into what twitter is really all about. I found an article called The MMO Gamers Guide to Twitter which was fairly helpful and gives some nice links for gamers who use twitter, but after an hour or so of digging  I’m still not really sure that I understand the phenomenon that is twitter.. BUT I decided to give it a try anyway! So you can now follow me on twitter! I’ve also added the twitter widget to my sidebar which will show the most recent tweets!

So nothing major today, just wanted to let everyone know that I’ve finally got around to updating my about page and have added a contact page! Links included here, and can be found on the navigation bar at the top of the page!

I’ll add more contact information later… If I ever get with the times…

I still have no idea what this newfangled “twitter” thing is all about!  >_<

When it Rains, it Pours

If you look closely you can see where a hole was burned through the middle of the fan!

Things have been going downhill for me recently. I don’t think it’ll come as a shock to anyone when I say our economy is firmly in the toilet. My work has been hit by it and thus my hours at work have been drastically cut back(I’m only working 15 hours this week). So I’ve been searching for a second job recently. Of course in this bad economy more companies are letting people go than are bringing in new people. To top it off as I sit down to play the Aion beta this weekend I find that my video card has pretty much fried.

I guess the fan on the video card quit for whatever reason, and the card over heated causing the fan to melt! As you can imagine this means I was unable to get anything done that I was hoping for during this weekends beta! I’m not sure, but I think the computer is out of warranty now. I need to dig up the paper work. If I’m right though, I’m pretty well screwed. With the hard times at work right now, there’s no way I can afford a new video card anytime soon. Which leaves me doing all of my internet activities on my laptop. My laptop runs WoW just fine, but Aion? We’ll see next Beta weekend…

Flag Counter

I found this flag counter website on Wilhelm’s blog The Ancient Gaming Noob. Although I get the tiniest fraction of the traffic that he does, I still thought it was a really neat thing and had to get one for myself! It’s quite exciting to think that people all over the world could potentially be seeing my blog! So check out the new flag counter in the sidebar. =)

Introducing The Game Dungeon!

I just wanted to make an introductory post to talk a bit about my past mmo experiences and what I want to do with this blog.

I started my journey into the world of MMORPGs with the original EQ. I’m sad to say that I didn’t get to experience the game in it’s prime nor any of the end game content that it had to offer. I started playing it pretty late and made it to about level 55 before SOE released EQ II. With the release of EQ II I decided I was probably too far behind in the original EQ to catch up and made the transition to it’s successor.

While EQ II is technically my second in mmo in a lot of ways I think of it as my first. It was the first one I hit the level cap in, and the first one in which I experienced endgame content. It was a very enjoyable game and sometimes I wish my friends had stuck with it, but they moved to WoW and I followed.
