Busy day! [Aug. 10th, 2003|10:57 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Today I've got a lot of boring computer things to do, must get some files ready for a book, perhaps work on my website (I've got a million new prints to add to my site!), etc. Nothing fun =P

I might get a chance to paint later though - I'll post my cam link if I do!

Let's see... what else is new... Matt & I are thinking about renewing our EverQuest accounts again (for the millionth time, lol). We are both way too excited for EverQuest 2 to come out, and we need to play something in the meantime... I'm sure my character is still there - I've gone long amounts of time without renewing my account in the past and they've never deleted her. We'll have to go get the newest expansion packs though, which will kinda suck, and I'm sure there is a giant patch to download. But, I miss playing EQ with Matty (our computers are right next to each other and we always get two accounts, so we can play at the same time!). We'll see ;)

PS2 has Everquest now. I know our computer can't handle any games so we might pick up a ps2 in the near future. I'd like to try that out as well as Kingdom Hearts, Finally Fantasy X, Xenosaga... and all the other RPG's the gamecube and xbox don't have.

Jason and I are the same way. We go online with our xboxes and play together.

EQ on PS2 looks very similar (but not quite as complex, which might be a good thing!) to the PC version. It's a fun game - having friends & family play with you makes the game a million more times as fun!

Matt & I always try to play games like that (the addictive ones, that take over one's life, lol) together. That way we are still spending time together and nobody feels left out!

EverQuest2 looks so freaking cool - if you scroll down on this page you can see some of the screenshots they've released. It looks so much better than any other MMORPG I've ever seen! The minimum specs are pretty high though. My PC will be able to meet them, but Matt's falls a little short. I'm sure we'll end up buying me a new computer and giving my current one to Matt. That's what happened when we got the first EverQuest, lol.

That's cool! :) Won't a game as addicting as EQ is cut into your painting time? That's why I have never played it. I don't have the time. My hubby still plays almost everyday. I do my ebay/website stuff on my puter while he plays EQ on his. Maybe you guys could be on the same server and play together sometime? I'm not sure how that works but it was just a thought.

Bleahhhhh

After about 8 hours of trying to update the assorted patches, drivers, etc. for EQ, I've realized it just won't work on my computer. It works FINE on Matt's (old!!!) computer. Not my computer though...noooo.... it seems a lot of people with Windows XP are having the same problem I am, and there hasn't been a patch yet to fix it. Bleah. I might have to wait for EQ2 =P I might re-start my Dark Age of Camelot account again - I'm just itching to play another MMORPG with Matty =(

I don't think it would cut into my painting time, mostly I'd just play with Matt, in lieu of watching TV or whatever =)

8 hours :P You poor thing! Ya, I think my hubby had to re install a bunch of his stuff when we got XP. My hubby has Dark Age of Camelot too. He doesn't play it very much though. I'm not sure why? He's been playing the new Star Wars game now too.

Woohoo! =) Having eachothers banners up, I think that makes us partners in crime ;) hehe. And since theres this ring of eBay artists on LJ we're a part of, we can all be like the art mob. Lol. =)

Ah, it must be getting late...heh

Ah you are so lucky! I'd give ANYTHING to play Everquest again.
Unfortunately, I have the sort of obsession where I wouldn't do anything else but play the game...ah I miss the good old days.

I went ahead and started up my old Dark Age of Camelot account instead of EQ (EQ simply does not like my computer - I tried a million fixes, un-installs and re-installs, and it just kept bugging out. I hate Windows XP - my version of it never worked very well with EQ, especially with my webcam running 24/7. EQ2 should work OK though, since XP will be one of its original platforms). Did you ever play Dark Age of Camelot? In some ways I like it better than EQ. It's very, very similar, but most of the things that annoyed me about EQ are absent in DAoC!
