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.
