It's not a videogame track... but hey, it's a damn good song nonetheless. Featured in a damn good movie too, if I do say so myself. Very easy to whistle along to, and to whistle while at work assuming you know the rhythm.

I dig it. <3

It feels like it's been ages since I really posted anything of any substance. In fact, looking back, it's been almost two weeks. Honestly, it's because not much has been happening lately. I'll be attending a convention in June, looking forward to that. Otherwise, I'm just hangin' in there, ya know?

In EverQuest news, Renvaras and Cybel picked up enough AAs that I felt it was finally time to bump them up another five levels. Currently, they're both level 70; Ren has 766 AAs, while Cybel has 604. I'm dumping about 20% of Ren's experience into Leadership Experience and splitting half of that with Cybel, to give them both some additional group benefits. (Right now, they both have the ability to inspect enemy buffs, and a small group-wide boost to melee damage.) Extra benefits are nice, and I don't mind slowing down Ren's exp a bit so Cybel can play catch-up.

As for other milestones in game... aside from the fact that I've (aaaallllmost) finished gathering all of their Planes of Power-level spells/songs, I don't have much else to talk about. I started Ren's Epic 1.5 quest a few weeks ago, but I'm at a point now where I'll have to down some strong raid-level bosses... which probably won't end well with just Ren, Cybel, and their two mercs. Cybel's in a worse spot than Ren... as I recall, her Epic 1.5 pretty much starts with a raid-level boss fight. I shall have to look for a guild soon. /hmmmm

In non-EQ news... I picked up Trinity: Souls of Zill O'll last week. I'll have to play that sometime. I'll also have to pick up Marvel vs. Capcom 3, though I might just hold out for Capcom to make Captain Commando playable. (It'd be nice if they could squeeze in Phoenix Wright too, though I have NO idea how that'd work. XD Aside from a lot of finger-pointing and hollering!)

Also, I finally finished reading EverQuest: The Rogue's Hour! Thankfully, the book got a bit more interesting towards the end... at least, interesting for me anyway. When questions finally start getting answered and whatnot. Good read, though I'd personally still recommend Truth & Steel over it any day.

I think that's about it for now.

Seven-Hero parties are now in-game! But that's not all... wait, what's this?

.... holy crap. Just... holy crap?! I think ArenaNet might've just stumbled upon something big here, and whoever came up with this idea ought to be given the biggest raise in existence.

Honestly, one of the big complaints I had with the Hero system was that... while each Hero did have some backstory fleshed out... it wasn't all your story. Know what I mean? It wasn't your character, it was just some character who pledged to follow you for whatever reason. This changes that entirely, and I know so many people who have a level 20 of almost every class in-game who I'm sure must be buying all 8 of these Mercenary Hero slots. Hell, if I had more than 3-4 20s per account, I'd buy them!

I think this is the coolest idea ArenaNet's ever come up with. Kudos. Kudos. I might now have a reason to level a few 20s. (Holy crap!!)
