I'm not sure if I should be overjoyed or dreading its release...I'm sure it will suck away my life if I get it...but on the other hand...being wrong can be so right....

I don't know about EQ. I've got a friend who's addicted and has been playing for an average of 5 hours a day, for the last 3 years. From what I can tell, the game is all about killing monsters and leveling up. Seems pretty boring to me. Everwinter Nights appears to be more interesting.

I have seen EQ its graphics are fairly primitive and cartoony. Also the landscape is nothing to write home about. I don't see how its so much fun, I liked Diablo better, Play War3 instead its ten times better.

Neverwinter Nights looks and plays great. :)

I sure they do a decent port of the Toolset.

OS X doesn't suck for gaming. I play UT under OS X and I get way better frame-rates then in OS 9. Also, Jaguar will be amazing, especially for gaming and graphics intensive apps.

OS X is *far* better for gaming than OS 9 is... Just look at OS 9's Carbon routines vs. OS X's carbon routines...

Then think about the online aspect of EQ... Then think about how utterly crap the Classic Mac OS's TCP/IP response times are...


Understand the technology before saying something stupid.

OMG, Evercrack is going to be awesome on OS X... Sure, the graphics are a bit old, but hopefully that will mean the sysreqs will be lower. Imagine being able to play EQ on an iBook... That would be so cool!!!

Finally, i can convince some of my dieheard eq friends to switch over to Mac and rest assured that eq is still available :)
