    The New PC 3:22 am-

    Just because I had mentioned to Gawain that I was going to geek out and post some case porn. The first shot is my old new pc. Then you got the new pc insides. Which I think I did a good job on with my use of zip ties. The old pc has the same number of fans. Yet some how it is noisier. The new case is slick as hell. It has a front air filter that can be pulled out and cleaned. It also has they handy hard drive bays that you attach two things (mounts?) that allows you to slide the drive in and out. Very hand for when you need to pull shit out and replace it.

    And I’m happy with everything else about the new computer. All of the items I ordered have (so far) worked as I had expected. I went out and bought Crysis to determine what my pc was able to do. I’m happy to say I can run it on high and I get a good 40-60 FPS most of the time.

    To round out this one above is my messy computer area. Also here is a new poll:

    So I made level 20 on my barbarian. I’m quite enjoying AoC on a number of levels. You got boobs, gore, death, and great views. Visually it is quite impresive. If you have a computer that can handle it.

    Headlights Gore and Death Great View

    The melee combat also deserves mentioning. First and foremost there is no auto attack in Age of Conan. In other mmorpg’s you can start combat and sit back. Your character will attack his opponent till one of them dies. Granted a lot of these types of games have more interactivity than just that. But in Conan you can’t just hit a button to start combat.

    In Age of Conan your first three hot bar buttons are your basic attacks,

    Combat Keys

    Upper Left, Middle, and Upper Right. You can use these attacks by themselves and they do not continue to auto attack once you hit them. You do have special abilities (like in other mmo’s) but they are combos so you have to hit a combination of these combat keys to successfully pull of your move. These share a lot in common with attacks in a fighting game. This comparison gets even closer to the fighting game genre when you find out when you kill a badguy there is a chance you will get a fatality. When you do it can be a bloody mess.

    Seeing screenshots of a game is one thing. It so better to see it in action. Here is just about 5 minutes of gameplay from the game Age of Conan. And it does not contain any emo fucking music in the background. I hate that bullshit with a passion. So what you hear in the video is what you hear when you play the game. At the time of the video was taken I was a level 25 barbarian.

    I’ve been meaning to capture a few of the Age of Conan fatalities in action and finally got around to it. These movies are much smaller than that gameplay movie I did.

    There are a few others. For example I’ve seen my barbarian clobber a mob over and over with his hammer when pulling off a fatality. So I think it depends on the weapons equipped. Cool stuff.
