Return to Norath Day 2, Part 2

March 13th, 2009.  Day 2, Part 2.


After some rest I decided to give it another go.  Most of the locations I used to haunt are returning to memory.  The Nexus, Queynos, Freeport, yeah, I remember most of em now.  I decided to find the bank, I could not remember what all I had in there.

Lo and behold!  I have over 2,000 Platinum!  Is that good?  I don’t recall what stuff really costs here anymore.  I left all of it in the bank and went to the Planes of Knowledge again.  This time I had a necklace with a tooth on it.  I found a gargoyle and gave it to him, he asked me to join his cause.

What the hell.  I did.

I was then transformed into a winged Gargoyle!  This was new to me, and was certainly not in the game way back when!  I travelled the land, killing little gray critters and scooping up the trash they had.  I then went back to my original form and took off to Queynos.  I found some skeletons waay west of the city (at least I think it was west).  I killed them and traveled though a cave.  Found myself getting very bored, for even attacking gray monsters seemed to take over 2 minutes (and I was hitting them with two weapons at the same time for about 30 to 70 damage each swing!). 

I then found that I was looking at how crap-tacular the graphics were.  Yeah, I know the game is super old, but seriously?  You’d think they would have vamped up the graphics a little.  Hell there were parts where I could see forever and there were no trees, no monsters, no buildings, just the sky and flat land.

No wonder I went to World of Warcraft way back then.

And that’s the thought process I had when I sat down to log out for the evening.

30 seconds.

What did I accomplish?  Nothing really, just went from one place to another.

25 seconds.

Did you do anything fun?  Well, I turned into a gargoyle for a bit, that was kindav neat.  But not neat enough to hold my attention for too long.

20 seconds.

And you didn’t like the graphics?  No, but I kindav knew that going back into it, besides, not all games are great solely because of their graphics, I also like the storylines.

15 seconds.

Do you like the storyline in EverQuest?  Beats me, I honestly didn’t read half the dialogue, I just smacked the keywords when hailing an NPC.  I guess I would have to say no then.

10 seconds.

You gonna keep on playin?  Yeah, for a little longer, not tonight, but later.

5 seconds.

At least you are giving it a try.  Well, at least in this second part of today I did not die…
