In response to Koolguy900095 (#1)
The PS2 version is beyond awesome. No bugs, and lots of lagless servers. It is the funnest game I have at home. If you hate Everquest, it is because the PC version had so many bugs and upgrades.
In response to Bischoff (#2)
does the ps2 internet cost something monthly i need to get it :)
In response to Koolguy900095 (#3)
I bet its at least 10 buck(PC version is 10 bucks a month)
In response to Scoobert (#4)
no i mean for the ps2 online not for the game
In response to Koolguy900095 (#5)
Oh, PS2 online is free.
In response to Scoobert (#6)
Yea, but the modem is like $60-$100, It ranges. I use broadband on mine though.
In response to Bischoff (#7)
You can only get a broudband for the PS2, you might be able to get a converter, but you cant buy one premade 56k.
In response to Scoobert (#8)
Thats what confuses me. I used my dial up for PS2 a few weeks ago before I had cable. I didn't think that would be considered broadband. One downfall about PS2 online is no chatting in games, and there isn't much use of the keyboard. The only time I found a chat was in Madden 2003 where you could chat before launching game. Thats really a shame.
In response to Bischoff (#9)
Online games aren't chatrooms, the only time an online game should have use for talking is when its a team based game or a roleplaying game.(If you noticed, the use for most chat verbs in BYOND games only fill the window with useless speech which floods the screen, people are so lucky to have creators to make communication happen in their game, then again, you would probably have few players playing your game if they could not communicate.)

DOn't have a PS2 I have a Xbox. I saw the Graphics for that EVerquest game and I think they were horrible. Must be to much Dead or Alive 3 with their awesome graphics.
In response to Kusanagi (#10)
ALRIGHT.. ignorant, impatient children.

Yes, Everquest on the PC sucks. the upgrades might have made it good.. but i wont play them anymore...

However.. The PS2 Version is by far superior.. its still a basic hacknslash level gain BUT the bonuses about it are.


NO LAG

NO LOADING

NO SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

FASTER ACTION

QUCIKER COMBAT

REVISED COMBAT AND SKILL SYSTEM

BETTER GRAPHICS

overall this game is good, those biased towards it who wont give it a shot.. join the KKK because thats exactly what they do.
In response to Codesterz (#11)
not everything is graphics. the graphics are fine though.

Ive had the Xbox for a while, traded it in for PS2.

WILL get Xbox in the future because its a good system and has nice games.

but im not biased to game systems they all get their time in the spotlight

Have you ever heard the term "People don't like being called children, when they aren't children"?...

Doesn't answer my questions, as an Everquest player. I went looking for the game yesterday, but no games stores in Denmark have it yet(drat...).

Do I need to subscribe to a monthly account?

How's the quest system in this. Does it mirror that of Everquest?

Are there ring events like there are in Everquest? (Event's triggered by talking to someone, after which some amount of monsters spawn in waves of some amount of time, increasing in difficulty until a boss monster spawns)

Any armor/weapon decay? (cant find info on that anywhere, so I assume not)

Did armor dyeing make it into EQoA?

How big is the world compared to EQPC?(EQPC is over 170 zones now, over 200 with the new expansion LoY)

How are classes balanced in groups? Does the "Holy Trinity" still exist?(I heard Enchanters got junked from their old role of crowd control. But are warriors / clerics still a forced required element in any group?)

I heard you start with 5 spell slots. Can this be increased through items/quests like Sony said they would allow?

That's all fer now...

I request that you send me $600 and a copy of Everquest: Online Adventures. If you don't follow that, does that make you less human?

This is a PUBLIC forum. People may post as they wish as long as their post(s) adhere to the Community Standards.

Because someone raises their hand and beckons you to pretty please not discuss something or post on a topic certainly doesn't stop them from doing it.

Yes, it requires a subscription monthly but does not require credit card.. I buy time cards. If you have internet connection for your computer go out, spend $20 on a router and get 2/3/4 or like me 5 for the price of one.
How's the quest system in this. Does it mirror that of Everquest?

No.. The quests are completely different, this game is based only on the continent of Antonica (but its not named antonica... The Erudites are preparing to head to Odus (the island) Freeport has no paladin guild. All races are on this one continent..

The Continent is huge
Are there ring events like there are in Everquest? (Event's triggered by talking to someone, after which some amount of monsters spawn in waves of some amount of time, increasing in difficulty until a boss monster spawns)
No idea.
Any armor/weapon decay? (cant find info on that anywhere, so I assume not)
Yes, weapons and armor degrades.

Did armor dyeing make it into EQoA?
I dont know, just started
How big is the world compared to EQPC?(EQPC is over 170 zones now, over 200 with the new expansion LoY)
700 km overall

How are classes balanced in groups? Does the "Holy Trinity" still exist?(I heard Enchanters got junked from their old role of crowd control. But are warriors / clerics still a forced required element in any group?)

Im not a very big party person. This version is more solo friendly but has a few quests where grouping is an assett

would and will are synonymous in the sentence you gave so youve answered yourself.
That's all fer now...
