    Everquest is a dungeons and dragons style computer game where all players play together in an online world.

    What I can't believe is that people actually buy and sell characters and items like swords and magic spells for real money on ebay. Not just chump change either but hundreds and thousands of US dollars. Who would pay this kind of money for a video game character? I'm in shock.

    a level 60 monk for $455

    $710 for a couple of characters

    Yeah, that is reasonably insane. Thing is, someone will bid on that and that $455 is probably a bargain in some circles!

    My little brother sold his character for $3000 to some guy in Ohio, back in the game's hayday.

    I kid you not.

    I found that "pikmin" game for the gamecube pretty addictive too. All you do is farm these little ant dudes and take on bugs with them. It occupied an entire weekend of my life last month, which I know is not hardcore by any means, but that doesn't happen to me often.

    okay, maybe it does happen often but...

    Pikmin is good [​IMG] Just completed it last week. It reminds me of Lemmings in a way. I loved lemmings. Reccommend any other good games for gamecube? I know THPS3 kicks ass, anything else?

    Well, there is so little out right now...the Star Wars game was awesome! Most of the good games are all coming out in the coming months.

    Nintendo sure aren't saying much about the big games they have scheduled for the summer. Kinda frustrating.
