Question of the week: one of my most nostalgic moments happened when I played a game that is not around no more and I miss it to be honest called... Zone 4 Fight Distract. It was a game that had a lot in it but one thing I loved in it was the Zombie fighting part. You was giving guns and all kinds of things and you had to survive waves of zombies. I remember when 4 of us did that and got to the last round and everyone died and I was the last one standing and we won. I felt amazing I felt that we owned those zombies. Also in the main part of the game you was giving skills like boxing, sumo, judo and stuff like that. Felt so good when u would take on a game boss and own them. I spent a lot of time in that game and it was the only game I ever put money in. Love Zone 4 you need to come just sayin lol.

Question of the week: one of my most nostalgic moments happened in Wrath of the Lich King. At this point in time, all my mains in WoW were on Akama, a PvP server. That meant ganks were the way of the world. When this moment occurred, I was rolling around Icecrown on my Blood Elf Paladin, listening to Dream Theater and collecting Saronite and Titanium to make the big bucks on the Auction House. Many of the mining nodes spawned right around the main structure of Icecrown Citadel, right near some very powerful elite mobs. I was in my prot spec, carefully skirting around said mobs and gathering the precious ores, when a stupid Warrior decided to attack me. Naturally, the fight quickly moved into the nearby piles of giant skeletons and ghouls. Being that I had more AOE damage, as this was the period of Consecration and AFK to tank, I pulled more aggro from the mobs. So, I wound up tanking the warrior and several elites. It didn't look good. Somehow, I managed to kill the Warrior, destroy all the mobs, and survive. I didn't see the Warrior again after that, for some reason. The best part? My brother was watching over my shoulder when this happened, so I had a witness.

For the question of the week... geeze to pick -one- nostalgic moment? I think I would have to say it was my trip to Jeuno in FFXI... me as WHM, my hubby as WAR, and my friends as RDM and THF respectively, all inching along, holding our breaths as we wove between potentially lethal mobs just trying to get to the next zone. Haven't felt anything like that since, until I ported out of the starter zone In Project:Gorgon into an incorrect, higher level zone and the hubby and I had to weave our way back to the right one. Who knew snow could hurt so much?

Well, the game tries to get over 9000, but pretty much falls short every time.
