If you're still hooked on Everquest II
or any of the other Sony Online games you'll want to block off August 5th-8th as that's when Sony is having their Fan Faire event. The event is being held at Bally's Las Vegas which means that there will be plenty of other things to do if you get bored with the programing at the event (although there will be a costume contest and a banquet).
The event will allow fans to hang with other fans of the game, the developers, and wonder what the hell is going on with The Agency
. You can now register for the event online
and they have multiple pass options to suit every budget. It's also worth noting that attending the event will score you a digital copy of the new expansion packs for Everquest
and Everquest II
