The new expansion for Everquest 2 came out last Tuesday. After having to run around Phoenix looking for a copy, installing and patching for 18 hours (Yes, I do have cable internet.) I was finally able to get in and start playing.

So far..... I LOVE THE GAME!!! Whatever the EQ2 team has been doing over at Sony in the past couple of years since the game came out they have been doing great. I was never really able to get into the game back when it came out. I am leaning towards the explanation that no longer do you start with one of four classes to start out and then at level 10 and 20 you finally get to choose the real class you want.

I am also loving the berserker class. It was my favorite class in EQ1 and I am finding it is even better in EQ2.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

One word can describe this game: WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Or a few words: OMFG this game is absoluting freaking amazing! It's Friday and I can't wait to get off of work so I can go home and play. /hack /cough Ummm.... I think I'm getting a cold and need to go home and play.

OK, so maybe that was more than a few words, but by now you should get my point. This is the best game that I have seen come out in a long, long time. The last game that made me want to play it as much as this one does was Diablo 2. Which I still play from time to time. The best part, however, is that it isn't just for guys! They've put in enouch character customization that it doesn't annoy the hell out of me, but my wife spent an hour going through every option to make her character look perfect. Yes, there is plenty of hack and slash for me to spend countless hours playing this game. But there is also tons of social interaction throughout the game in all the cities that will keep my wife entertained for countless hours as well.

And on top of all that! I can't wait to see what the modders out there are going to be able to come up with. I've already seen a few websites popping up with groups that have already started working on what at least sounds like amazing mods.

So for those of you out there that haven't already bought this game, go get it now. You won't regret it.
