Tilt Time Killers

So lets say your an idiot and locked yourself out of your account and the next day when you tried to get in they told you to call GA. Ok. So what can you do while waiting to get back on or waiting for your tenth deposit of the month to clear.

World of Warcraft. I played this and it was great. I made it to level 70.. and then I got really bored of the game. Unless you have a bunch of friends playing that will raid with you and not be assholes the game sucks. Nothing new to do as a 70. Blah. Go farm a zillion gold for three weeks so you can buy a mount. No thanks. Unless your like that chick who sold her body for gold your SOL.

So I have been exploring some of the other MMORPGS in my spare time.

I tried to download Guild Wars. It is a free game. Free is good. You have to actually buy the software but no monthly fees. They have a free trial online which I downloaded but could not get it to run on Vista. I need a new machine. Apparently you also need an access key which I also could not find. Too much work.

So next up I figure I would try some nice Ultima Online. Same deal with a 14-day trial. I was unable to install this on Vista either. My nerdy elf girl loving self is getting pissed at this point.

Finally I was able to get Lord of the Rings 14-day trial up and running. I sorta like this one. The graphics are not as good as Warcraft. There really is no PVP element in the actual world. The storyline is pretty linear so far. Possibly to keep you moving and get you used to the game. It is alright but I have not really seen anything that has made me say "WICKED COOL!".

Next up on the list of Nerd Trials is going to be Star Wars online. I will download the 14-day trial this week and see if it is any good. So this probably is not helpful but good luck to anyone who wants a little nerdy fun.

When I left Star Wars Online, I had a Jedi and a pretty sweet Bounty Hunter who was working on the Jedi trials.

You obviously never tried battlegrounds in WoW. It is a BLAST killing the Alliance retards in AV, and the capture the flag game in WSG is tremendous fun, especially for a hunter who is set up perfectly for chasing down and harassing a flag carrier.

It does require some patience and work to improve your PvP game. But it's very satisfying when the game is going right.

I'm still playing because I started another toon and am doing completely new stuff on my way up to 70. Currenly 62 and having a blast.

I have many friends who are ghey like you and they all seem to like LOTRO. They are all WOW fanactics, so maybe you should give LOTRO another try. Personally I hate those games, though I did try Matrix Online (it sucked) and Eve Online. EVE was kinda cool, but these games are not my kind of fun, but I would give it a try if your into these things.

Waffles,

LoTR bored me to tears on the opening weekend, maybe its gotten better?

The MMORPG that I played for 4 years was FFXI. That was as challenging of a MMORPG that they come. Its downfalls (need a party of 6 at least to get shit done) was its greatest challenge.

I was a Evercrack junkie for many years. Every MMORGP that I have tried since has been ghey.

BUT, if you find one you like let me know, I'll give it a try.

LoTR is probably the best MMORPG out there for the single player.
