The Second Age of Aranna

Installed Dungeon Siege II this evening. Even found my old gaming partner was willing to agree to my rather strict terms on when we could play online together (only between 2200-2300 weekdays) but alas, he was no where to be found this evening *single tear* Oh stick boy, where are you!

I was impressed with the similarity of game play from the first game, however...and not that I'm entirely sure about this, but in the old game I'm pretty sure we used right-click to move, and left-click to attack. In this game, it's reversed. Perhaps I can use 'settings' to adjust accordingly.

There's not nearly as many boxes & crates to bash open. That's good, because there were too many in the other game and I found it tedious. Their absence in this game, however, is noticeable during the more boring passages.

Oh, and I need a better video card. When I built this computer, we picked up the sole PCI-X card they had in the store - adequate for our needs at the time. drax0r chose to update his card when he began playing World of Warcraft III but according to recent AIM session, that card ...gamed for shit. So here I am. My XP box is a 2.8Ghz Hyper-threaded Intel proc w/1GB dual-channel RAM & a 10k rpm Raptor SATA drive. It's a fast box, but I need a video card that won't set me back the price of a used Cavalier. Any suggestions?

Another nice aspect of this game is the ability to import single-player characters into multi-player games and vise-versa. Though truth be told, when I finally begin my nightly game with danzigfied, I'll likely create an identical character. That reminds me, I haven't logged into the mud lately.

I have a PCIe (PCI-Express card, not a PCI-X) card, although I can't remember if it's an x4 or x1. I'm guessing the latter since it was a brand new form factor when I bought it.
