Early morning SWG

Wow, you know your galaxy has population/enthusiasm problems when you do a bazaar search and there is 1, count em 1, weapon available for sale in the entire galaxy.

So far this weekend

Space PVP on Valcyn last night. Macbook Pro is really having issues running SWG since Ch11 came out, though I don't know if it's linked to that or not. An event of 3 15 minute rounds took 2.5 hours. Hrm, not a big fan of that.

Today I slept late, then ran errands, so I didn't get into AoC until 6pm or so. Hit level 23, ended up grouping with a guy I helped fight off attacking Vanir. We finished one of my quests, he shared one with me, we grouped with a level 33 guy to finish the shared, and along the way I got both 1/2 way to level 24 and 3/4 of several other quests I had. Should be able to solo those.

Along the way, I noticed that my shuttle pc is now showing video ram in dxdiag, which means SWG will let me play in a windowed mode. The shuttle is 3 years older than the MBP, has a prev gen vid card (X800XT vs MBP's X1600), and is using the same wireless mouse (I take it back and forth). Lag is not showing like it does on the MBP, although I'm still not impressed with SWG's performance on a machine that was built to play games 2.5 years after SWG was released.

Will start resizing screenshots for upload to Flickr and will update again tomorrow. Also, I added AoC friend Zangra's flickr photostream to my links.

I Pledge

Taking a cue from old episodes of YaMB, I pledge to do the following before Monday, Dec 15th:
-AoC for 6+ hours (gotta hit 25 or maybe even 30)
-SWG for 4+ hours (gotta hit at least 10 on my new Starsider Trader)
-Blog something
-Upload those dang screenshots
Maybe I should do also pledge to pledge for the next month. Got a busy time at work and I need to be able to relax. Theoretically things like the above relax me.

Keep meaning to update but....

I keep meaning to update but don't know when I'll find the time. Doing this update via the email update function, woot. Don't worry, more screenshots, stories, and even some actual thoughts of the state of different MMO's will be coming along the line at some point this week. I said "Don't worry" because I know that's been keeping you up at night lately. So stop it.
