A major milestone in my EVE career has been reacher, I got the skills to fly a hulk! Sure I am not the first, nor will I be the only, but getting the skills to fly a hulk is a major first step in a newbies mining career.

Anyways, I couldn't resist a nice scenic screenshot.
Anyways, this hulk definitly rocks to take out rats!
It has 3 powerful strip miners.

A bit of delay, but I'm still MMOing!

As if I could stop. You know, it's kind of funny, when I have MORE time I actually blog LESS! This is because I get caught up in my favourite games, and because I think I have more free time so I procrastinate less. Of course, one of the best ways to procrastinate, is to write a blog!

Well we got some EQ2 stuff today, so if your not sick of that yet, then LETS GO!

Yeah we got some altar dude.
A fun encounter. ^^
Looking good Cownosethecat!
I like this little pool here.
Another altar.
I got some new "fun" spells, zombieform.
And skeleton form.
Recently, there was a Brells Brew event! A nice way to get some kegs for your room and go on a fun quest. ^^ I like this event much more than the holiday ones. I agree with Troy over at Voyages of Vanguard and EQual Perspectives (two podcasts I listen to... which reminds me I have some things to add to my blogroll on the right) that holiday events suck. They really distract me from enjoying the game.

Anyways the event has dancing halflings!
And a brewery of the gods!
This screenshot may be simple, but these docks have a good atmospheric feeling to them.
I don't remember where I took it, but I like it. Seems I have seen this in other MMOs though. ^^ Must be a common theme...

A small tour of Dark Age of Camelot

I took a small tour back to Dark Age of Camelot. Not that I have played the game much before, but I did buy a boxed set for it a few years ago to give it a try. It wasn't the right game for me back then, but I was curious to see how it developed since then. The first thing I noticed when I came back to Dark Age of Camelot was how great the graphics look! It almost reminds me of Vanguard in some ways, especially the trees. In the end however, I couldn't really get used to the controls and that is my main reason for not continuing to play. The second is the player armor, after looking at some high level people, it seems the high level stuff is just dyed versions of the lower level armor. There wasn't much variation or style to the armor at all.

Still, I got some good screens so lets take a look! This first shot is all the classes of... dang I forgot the name of the plant/nature realm but yeah this is it's classes.
Some people fighting.
Gotta have castles! It wouldn't be Dark Age of Camelot without castles.
I sure do love mining. :P
Some sort of fast travel system?

Yeah, I really do like mining, seriously!
Here is a picture of some players, note the bland armor.
This guy killed me.
But this guy didn't! Caus its a necromancer pet, looks pretty cool!
Well, that is probably all I will ever write about Dark Age of Camelot! I was really surprised by how well the game has stood up to time, and how great the graphics where, but in the end I just couldn't get past the player armor and the controls.
