Arrived at Qeynos

EverQuest2 2009-03-22 05-23-02-72

Finally made it to Qeynos with my main, after working on getting my -50000 faction with Qeynos up to a positive.
My Necromancer changed into a Conjuror, definatly gonna take some time to get used to my "new" skills, really need to set up my toolbars.. kind of annoying but should not be a huge problem :)

So far Qeynos feels a lot better than Freeport.
I am now on my way discovering The Thundering Steppes and Antonica.

Back into space

SwgClient_r 2009-03-18 13-14-34-81

Been working on my expertise for my smuggler, changing it from full Beast Master spec to a Smuggler/BM spec made it possible to be a bit more effective in fights, but i am still not able to beat lvl 90 elites.
I can take on 3 normal lvl 90 at the same time and i did manage to kill a couple of lvl 87 silver elites, but they were very tough fights, also lost a couple.

Still need to lvl up my pet who is now a lvl 38, but to more effective i might also need a pet with better stats, my current, a Fanged Tiglon doesn't have really good stats, but i like it too much to get a new pet :)

Also went back into space to work on my space collections, curently working on my "Void Wing" kill quota, only need about 150 kills to get my tier 2, found a nice spot with a steady spawn that also has some Black Sun around so i can get some kills into that collection too.

Also remembered i still need to master pilot, but that last mission to master is a pain when trying to solo, although i haven't tried it in a long time, might give it another go sometime soon, i'd really like to get out of my fighter and fly that YT-1300 that has been in my storage for so long..

It's in the cards.

SwgClient_r 2009-03-14 09-55-52-07

Still playing a lot of the SWG Trading Card Game, not doing much else inside the game.
This cardgame can be really fun, but i still need to figure out how to play, i suck :)

So eventhough i don't know how to play, i am still having fun..

Operation Games for Windows Life - Failed

Fallout3 2009-03-07 22-10-57-32

Eventhough i bought Operation Anchorage for Fallout 3, it was apperantly not installed...
For some reason Games for Windows Live wouldn't update because my system had a different language than the automatic update Games for Windows Live was recieving, i was redirected to a Windows site with a possible solution, that of course didn't work either...

Even downloading and re-installing the latest version of GfWL didn't solve thas issue, what a piece of crap.
Going through and installing all available updates for Windows itself... you guessed it, didn't work either.
But eventually Google came to the rescue, i searched for the error message i was getting when trying to install Operation Anchorage and i found a forumpost having that same problem and by clicking on a possible solution from a poster i was finaly able to find a post that had a link to the the Dutch language update for WinXP/GfWL.
Apperantly it is to difficult for Microsoft to support different language systems with their software....

Anyway.. on to Operation Anchorage, i definatly enjoyed it, it felt a bit (too) short as i went through it in a few hours and i don't think you can do it again, eventhough i think it would be awesome, afterall it is a simulation program, so why not give you the option to run it again??

The gameplay (and scenery) felt different enough to give a little change of action and i had a lot of fun running through it.
I think i got most of the content done, i only missed one intelligence briefcase (only got 9/10), but since there is no going back i won't be able to search for the last one :(

If you like Fallout 3, Operation Anchorage is deffinatly worth getting.

Roaming the wastelands

Fallout3 2009-03-05 16-01-06-39

The last few days i've been really getting into the Fallout universe, been playing a lot of Fallout 3 (still haven't finished it and still looking to get Operation Anchorage after i purchased it, but i am no rush whatsoever). Really looking forward to the upcoming DLC.

Also thanks to Good Old Games i am playing Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics and eventhough they look familiar i can't say i remember playing them back then, so i am sure i'll have a lot of fun playing them.

Allready started playing the original Fallout and so far i am having a lot of fun.
