Well, I have my Age of Conan early access client all downloaded and patched, and my hard drive defragged after that massive install. I’m all good to go for the early launch tomorrow. My experience with the stress test was less than perfect, but in the end I think I feel the good outweighed the bad, and the potential outweighed the launch hurdles. I’ve had the game pre-ordered for months and months, and Saturdays are my day off, so I figure ‘what the hell’, let’s get in on some early access.
I’m open to the idea of posting what server I’ll be on and (eventually) the name of my character, if any other early-starters are planning to brave the opening day rush. Funcom released the server names, so I’ve been looking over them trying to make a decision, and I think I’ve settled on Omm. I’ll post my character name on Saturday if anyone wanted to join me for some decapitations and pixelated nipples.
Speaking of decapitations and nipples in video games, the Video Game Voter’s Network has set up an initiative to collectively voice our opinions on violence in video games to the 2008 presidential candidates. It’s pretty straightforward, read the letter on the page, and if you stand by what it says, put in our information and hit send. They’ll handle the rest.
Did you enjoy that little segue?
Also, this is really cool.
