Tastes Gamey

This blog is about stuff. Sometimes that stuff has to do with MMORPGs.

Return of the desktop. Horizons, briefly.

I am writing this entry from my desktop computer. After months in storage, it is back in action. There's nothing that will make you appreciate your old, crappy desktop computer like a few months using an even crappier laptop.I've still got plans for a new computer, but in the meantime, I am glad to have this one back.

I left Horizons patching on the laptop last night. This morning, it had checked out my system and told me I didn't meet the specs, but it let me run it anyway. With some patience, I got through character creation and took my little saris out for a spin on the tutorial island. It ran ok, despite the shortcomings of the laptop. I will have to install it up here and give it a fair shake. Previously, I've not hated it, but it has never been something to draw me away from whatever other game I am playing. Since I am not playing anything else... who knows?

I like the music in Horizons so far. That's pretty unusual for me. I am usually one to immediately hunt down the option to turn music OFF. I like to listen to my own music while I play. Probably my favorite feature of EQ that came down the pike over the years was the in-game MP3 player. But a few games have had music that I actually liked enough to leave on. Lineage 2 was another of those games.
