PDA

View Full Version : I Gotta Neopet...

Yes I did! And now Moggraider is making fun of me and calling me "naive". Well, I think it is cute. Funny, too. It got hungry and I had no money to buy food, so I went to the village Soup Kitchen and got free food. Now isn't that a neat idea?

Then I decided to do some fighting in the Battledome and the site immediately went down to undergo repairs. Wonder if it was something I did? If my Dad finds out he'll accuse me of causing it. He thinks I'm the most powerful person in the Universe.

If World War III breaks out tomorrow, he'll say it's my fault. How do I know? Like yesterday I pushed the "On" button on the washing machine and the breaker tripped. He said that was my fault for somehow not pushing the button right. Now you tell me how many different ways can you push a button?

Here is my pet. He is a Red Korbat. Don't you wish you had one?

Hey you guys! Stop being so darned uptight and serious!

NOOdles, I truly do have quite a seriously active real life full of friends and various activities from clubbing and dancing to rollerblading. I jog and actually do get pretty physical, too. In fact, I'm willing to bet you that I lead a more normally active social life than you do!

But I also work from home writing business stuff that would bore you to tears (bores me), have completed a novel among other writing, and I really do need "play time". I play RPG games too, read, and if messing around with a cute little virtual pet pleases me, why should it really get up anyone's nose?

Or is it the fact I shared it here that bothers people? There is no place for whimsey or silliness here?

*glances around at the serious, disapproving faces, and shrugs.

Oh well...someday you will envy me the ability to play...

Hahaha. That's not what I meant at all. I was implying that you had one and wouldn't admit to it.

Waste of time. Spend that time helping the poor folks... or playing FFX.

Vakusuma, I hear some squeaking sounds. Do you suppose it is all these uptight people walking around in here? Could it be someone is deserving of your lovely epithet of yesteryear? Are they really squeaking when they walk because they are so uptight and totally opinionated about something so foolish as a little cybercreature?

My other one, whom I did not introduce, is growing into quite a fighter. I have him in training and his battle stats are getting higher all the time! Before long, I will enter him in the Battledome against some really vicious fighters and some elite magicians using magic spells to see how he fares.

Oh yes, such a silly thing, these little pets! :p :p :p :p

Het Dell, whats your pets name? My pet is becoming a strong fighter and is having extensive training and strong weapons. I think I would be a good opponent in the battledome. You know my pets name, I think I'll challenge you sometime. Just give me your pets name, and I'll challenge you.

Sorry M.E. I am not ready to actively go for it yet! Give him time and he will be a vicious beast for sure!

ok, just tell me when your ready.

Dell
21st Jul 2002, 15:12
At this rate I will never be ready. Found a great game to increase my levels nicely while playing a little rpg...and look what happened at 4pm my time just like that!

Ha ha!
NeoQuest is down due to the huge load on our servers. It will be back up at 7 pm NST.

Don't worry! All your NeoQuest games are belong to us.

hat is to say, your games are saved, and they'll be here when NeoQuest is back up!

NeoQuest is NOT AVAILABLE during the following times:

Monday-Thursday: 1pm - 7pm
Friday 12pm - 7pm
Saturday 8am - 7pm
Sunday 8am - 7pm

During times of excessively high volume on the site, such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and of course, St. Zorglak's day, Neoquest may be down for longer periods of time.

What is NST...

22nd Jul 2002, 22:48
NST is probably the same thing as GMT?? :o

(Although I forgot what GMT stands for? Greenwich Meridian Time or something?)

4Eyes
23rd Jul 2002, 06:26
No, it stands for Greenich Mean Time, though in what way it is mean, I don't know :)

All these Neopets are cute, but if you don't mind, I'd rather stay with trying to raise my Chao in Sonic Adventure 2.

vakusuma
23rd Jul 2002, 15:30
OK, you piqued my curiosity, so I took a quick look. NST, by my somewhat unreliable desktop clock, seems nothing more than glorified PST. Damn Cali based server.

GMT = Greenwich Meridian Time. Some time in the last century some blokes decided to get together in Greenwich (England) and to declare that they were the rulers of the world. Enforcement of GMT was just the form of worship they expected from us commoners...

*suppresses the urge to quote Monty Python*

Dell
23rd Jul 2002, 16:23
Aha! Thank you, Vakusuma" Neopet playing Neoquest game...Neo time, of course!

Now all I have to do is figure that all out against GMT, which is very Mean to me. Is it eight or nine hours ahead of California Suntan Time? Oh no, no, Pacific Savings Time? Or Pacific Standard Time?

Moggraider? You are there, tell me the hour difference, please.:confused:

vakusuma
23rd Jul 2002, 18:02
PST is GMT-8.

Hi-

wow- Necropost. >:D

>"you last visited: 07-04-2005 at 04:39 AM"<


I guess I'm well qualified to post in a necropost as a necroposter about necropets?!

Hi ya'll ^^w


FFXI ftw

Moggraider

Are you serious? FFXI was a total chore. Have you played FFXII? Pretty good.

Hi-

I really don't want to start another thread just to answer a question posed by our fearless Moderator, Moggraider, so I'll answer his question in this like really old necropost about necropets(whtarethoseanyway?). That's where the original question was anyway.

Yes, oh fearless Moderator, I played FFXII for all of 10minutes, maybe, long enough for the opening cs and that's about it. Have no clue about anything else FFXII related. Not the characters, battles systems, anything. Nada.

and FFXI wasn't a chore. It was one of the most demanding, frustrating, time consuming endeavors I've ever attempted. A really good game with a bad interface for controls and menus but ones that you learn after some trial and error. Lots of trial and error. > >


Somewhere in this forum, or maybe it was the old forum before it was moved here, there was a discussion on FFXI mmog, and if anyone here would give it a go. I believe that I voiced a opinion, rather strongly, that I would not participate in Squeenix's new online game.

I'm glad someone changed my mind.


Squeenix had released a new expansion for FXI that I ordered. When it arrives, I'll install it, make a new character, and have another go at it. After playing within the mmog community the last 4 years, it is really hard to immerse myself in just a 'regular' console game anymore.

except for Tombraider. :p


There you go Moggraider. An answer almost a year late. That's like really tardy.

Should I go stand in the hall?!?!

take care

Moggraider
4th Dec 2007, 05:30
I couldn't get into FFXI. The leveling is too grindy and when I played it, there was nobody around at my level. It was a chore. My character was a cute female with a beret and the name Millenia, though.

You should really, really play FFXII. It's FFXI done right. I'm sure you'll like it. And it's only $20 now!



See you in a year mayhap ;).
