*poof* Gone from the games

Okay, so I've been MIA from my games for a few days now, and for good reason. I've recently found out about, and encountered a problem with my video card. It's an nVidia GeForce 6200 OC. Well, as it turns out this is one of the video cards that has an infinite loop problem. My games are almost constantly BSODing pretty early on into me playing games. So I'm more or less forced to not play games for a while. Naturally, I'm just loving that. This just means I need to speed up the construction of my new PC.

So, the question is what I've been doing without my games. Well, over the past few days I've been getting intimate in more than a few ways.

I've spent the past few nights hanging out with the fiancee. Friday night we headed out to the Annapolis mall, and did a bit of shopping. We went for me to get a new belt, and for her to get a new wallet, and some iPod socks. We only managed to get the iPod socks. However, in addition to that we walked out with about 4 pounds of Lindt truffles, 2 shirts (for her), and some Hickory Farms stuff.

Yesterday we went to do the food tasting for our reception. The two dishes we wanted to look at were a steak and a chicken dish, and I have to say that I was very impressed. The chicken was very moist, which is impressive as keeping chicken moist at all is a challenge. I'm not a very big steak person, but I was also impressed with it. It was very soft, and very juicy. We decided that these were in fact the dishes we wanted. We also did a cake tasting, and the place that's doing the cake makes some very good cakes. We decided that our cake will have red velvet cake with cream cheese icing for one of the layer types, and carrot cake with cream cheese icing for the other.

I've also been able to play a few game demos, just to see what my computer could handle, and what I'd like to have. I was surprised to see that my computer could handle Hellgate: London, so I loaded up the demo for it, and I really enjoy it. I'm definitely going to get it. I also loaded the F.E.A.R. Single Player demo, and I did enjoy that as well, so I'll be getting it. I also tried to start a new Oblivion character, but that BSODed a little too much for my taste.

The last thing I've been doing is getting very intimate with RPG Maker XP. I had worked with it a little before, but nothing too serious. I'm going to be working on developing an RPG set in my world of Ashthaleron. I've already got a basic setting, and know at what part in the planet's history I'm going to be setting it in, however I need to work on a lot of the details. I'm thinking it will be a part of a continuing storyline to take place during a long war on the planet. More details to come later.

Any idea what the pricing is on Hero Engine? Do you know if there are various communities dedicated to making games with Hero Engine?
