Hello all,

I know its been a while since i have posted anything, my main pc took a turn for the worse and i have finally been able to restore it. So this means that i am back in the gaming community once again, also i will be reporting on FPS instead of MMO’s for a while since i have not been playing any MMO’s but have been playing a few FPS (First Person Shooters).

As you man of seen i have changed the name of the site to reflect the adventures of my main character “Chubbylilbuddy” as he takes a journey thru many different games.

Please stay tuned as we embark not only on new travels, but on heroic deeds, fantastic new locations and as always to conquer the villians of evil that await us as we begin a new chapter in our quest.

Well this weekend, i really didn’t get that much game time in.

I was still running from my laptop, which the graphics are not the best, However i did get my PC back from my good friend Corliss, and he was able to get the PC working again with out adding a new hard drive, in fact it wasn’t the hard drive at all, he advised that he too was having problems with it, he then moved a few componets around and was able to get into the bio’s and basically had to rest the bio’s cache and then he had to reinstall the bio’s for my motherboard and all was well. He tested it for about a week he said, rebooting it about 30-40 times  as well as leaving it on and running a few programs then rebooting, and he said it never acted up again.

As i have written before i have been tinkering with STO for the last 2 weeks, and i can say that i absolutely love the game, i do tend to get bored with the same types of missions or similar mission, i.e..goto this sector and defend it from the “fill in the Blank” (Klingon’s, Orion’s, Gorn, ect), then once done beam down to the planet to ensure there are no more assaults taking place.

Other than that its great, i am at Lt. Commander 8 right now, and i start these missions and just keep battling the space battles and next thing i know like 5 hours have passed, its really alot of fun and you can really submerge yourself in to the game.

I give this game 8 out of 10 for games that i would recommend.

Not much game play in here this weekend, i logged in a few times but for some reason i really didnt feel like playing, I really love the game, but i think STO has been distracting me from my normal routine of EQ II and with the whole PC being out of Commission all i really have played was STO.

I did happen to log into my Main “Cinderbella” say hi to a few guildies and check the broker made a whooping 2plat in the 2 weeks i was out, which is not good at all, i normally make that in about 1-2 hours of game play, this however is what is going to motivate me to get back into the swing of things and get more EQ II time in. I am going to have to make a schedule and split it from STO & EQII, M-W-F will be Eq2 & T-TH-Sat will be STO, with Sunday’s as a toss up or play both equally amount of time.

Now i did have a chance to check this game out this weekend when i was over at my buddy’s house, picking my PC up he wanted to show me the PC version and the Direct X 11 Graphics from his vid card, i have to admit i was blown away by the quality of the graphics of this game, it was like i was actually driving the car in the different environments (locations), i could not get over the fact it was like watching a movie, very realistic. My buddy told me that the multiplayer feature on PC and Xbox were interlinked, i have not confirmed this yet but if so i know i could get the xbox version and play against or team up with my buddy on his PC, which is pretty sweet if i say so myself. I will bring more on this game as i find more out about it.

Well untill next time Happy hunting in whatever game you find yourself in!!

Ok so my inner geek is coming out, I have been a long time Star Trek fan, ever since watching the original series when  i was a child. I also remember when the 1st Star Trek: The Movie came out, me and a buddy of mine went to see it at the old American Theater, which is now a parking lot. But i have been a fan of the entire sage, series that defines Star Trek.

Now it is my turn to take the helms and to boldly go where…ahhh no one everyone has gone before!!  Yes that’s right i purchased STO on Saturday and have not been able to stop playing the damn thing. I remember i had that feeling once before when i was hooked on EQ and then Eq2 and then WOW and now STO.

So far i am enjoying the game, there are some things that i do  not like but i am still learning and getting use to the controls, the game does run pretty well on my laptop, unlike Eq2 which i have placed on the back burner until my Desktop PC is fixed.

I currently have a Light Cruiser starship called the U.S.S. Pyramid, trust me i racked my brain for hours trying to figure a name out for a ship, but it came down to the generic cigarettes i smoke called Pyramids….they put a whole new meaning to cowboy killers..lol

To all my family in Eq2 that reads this blog, don’t worry I’ll be back, i cant do much right now in game with this laptop so i am making the best of my time. STO runs really smooth and I’ve been wanting to play this since it launched.

So the Character creation tool is really vast on the selection that you can choose from, i mean at first is looks so basic but if you hit this button called “advanced” then you get a lot and do i mean a lot more options to chose from. I really like the idea of ST:TNG uniforms being available its awesome, i have my whole crew right now wearing them.

Well with that said, you probably can tell i am getting impatient and want to get logged in to play, last night was great for 4 hours i was in a group trying to take down the Klingons…"until we meet again my friends until we meet again!”
