Boobs without nipples are just plain creepy and detracts from realism.  I'd rather not have boobs if they are not allowed to show nipples for some reason.

YK, ever tried just taking the clothes off yourself rather than glimpsing a peek during character load?  Tongue  Still can't take off the thong though.  Decapitations are a-ok but full frontal is a sin.  Also during character loading you get the scary moment when only the dentures and eyeballs are showing.

I'm still constantly amazed at how full gore is fine for most on the continent, but moderate sex/nudity isn't.

Conan really didn't wear armor until much later IIRC. He actually started out as a Thief. Not sure if anyone ever tried to "D&D" him, but i'd say he was a multi-class thief, barbarian, fighter biggrin

That's one heck of an experience penalty. Unless he kept his levels all really close to one another.

I continue to struggle.  But using some or your tips, I finally managed to have a match where I got more kills than deaths.  Barely (7 kills, 2 assists, 6 deaths).  I was using the AK47 with the red-dot scope.

Any tips for the Creek map?  I can only scrape out a kill or two on that map (with double-digit deaths every time  retard). 

Anyway, I'm having fun.  And I appreciate the insights.   

At the start of the map, run to the cave and kill them.  Then stay in the cave killing them.  If they are in the cave, don't go there.   If they are not in the cave, go there and kill them when they try to go in the cave.  Once you've mastered the cave, think about killing people outside of the cave. smile

Wanderers are usually on a RP PvP server right? Least thats the way I recall WoW and possibly EQ2..been a while. I loved that RPPvP WoW server. Its the only place I max capped a character. Lots of fun battles and got my own fair share of ganked done to me. Loved it all the time.

Hmmm you may have got us mixed up with someone else.  We generally play on a standard server (largest remaining contingent continues on a standard WoW server), though have been known to splinter off onto other server types.  I don't think a group of us has ever done RP PvP.  The guild was formed in DAOC during the Gone Gold days (close to 7 years ago I think) so for some years was kind of known as the unofficial official GG guild.




We have always had a splinter group that do PvP servers, but it's generally been under 5-10 people depending on the game.

which apparently in your mind shows that there was a preemptive desire to go to war with Japan.

Nonexistent blockade aside, there certainly WAS a desire in some factions of the US govt. to prod Japan into some action that would justify/initiate war.

Anyway.. carry on smile



Yeah there was a desire by some to do that - but if I remember our original argument the issue was if the government itself attempted to initiate war which I don't think is reasonable to assume.

They just needed to get the Japanese into the Peach Orchard

The only other option for me to get the PS3 collector's edition would be to cancel my EBgames preorder and order online.....  But then ebgames.com is charging 17.00 shipping and handling for this thing.    So I guess I have to stick to my 360 collector's edition instead.    I'll be able to play with you guys after all assuming my LAUNCH 360 holds up to this game.      Screw you Microsoft for making such a POS quality console.

The evil side of me (which is quite well endowed) is hoping your 360 dies just because you're so damned paranoid about it and mention it in every frickin post man!

You're like that friend of mine that lives in a 'bad' part of town and gets beat up, mugged and/or taunted everytime he goes outside because he always looks like he's expecting to.  Know that it may happen, but don't let it dictate how you act or what you do.

Ok ok... that's it.   I'm switching to PS3.

Sorry regular multiplayer gang.  I just don't trust my 360 launch unit to live up to the marathon sessions I'm going to put into this title.   It's due to go red rings, and I'm sure it will do so as soon as I bring this thing home.    frown    And yes Yellowking, maybe it's a little of me justifying my purchase of a PS3.   It's high time I got some use out of it other than Uncharted.   

What is puzzling is that I called up to check if it was too late to do it, and the ebgames guy sounded like he worked for Microsoft.   He told me that the PS3 version frame rates are far worse than the 360 version.     It's almost like ebgames pushes 360 over PS3 nowadays because this isn't the first time I've run into this.     Wierd.

Yet another thing that shows how different opinions can be.  I find the M16 one of the top 5-6 iron sights.

My worst 3 are:

M14 hands down
M60
G36

Best:

AK47/ak74
RPD
MP5
G3
M16/M4


Even though the M16 has an enclosed iron sights, it's not nearly as obstrusive as the G36


On a completely unrelated rant, I was taking the written test for my motorcycle permit today and am very irritated with the test creators.  Half the questions are completely ambiguous and it's really hard to see what they are asking.  I doubt I could pass with the manual in front of me since the lady administering the test couldn't find the correct answers afterwards when I asked her what they were. 

Many times there were 2 or 3 of the 4 answers that were in the manual, ALL were correct but apparently there is one magical answer that I'm supposed to know the dipshit that put the questions in thought was the right one.  Thankfully taking it is free and can be done daily, but they will be sick of seeing me soon.  First time I've ever failed a written test in my life and really pissed me off.

Evul bastard! I know your type from WoW!!! ;-)

Well, I agree actually, RP servers have less idiots, although that makes them more obvious, but, I've always thouroughly enjoyed RP servers, since people seem to genuinly care about the world, the guild and the people in it... the PVP option is just to make the world more deadly and interesting to be in - although., depends entirely on the system I guess..

but, I'm definitely going to try out an RP-PVP server...will probably be making a guild called "Gank Harkonis" as well ;-)

I checked and that name was already taken.

Another thing to remember is that due to the slower levelling up, most companies will let you move a character FROM a pvp server eventually, but almost none ever let you move TO a pvp server, ever.

It was a very, very bad night for pretty much everyone except Gamadict.

In one particularly bad round on Wet Works, we lost with a score of about 750-200 and everyone had around 10 deaths except yours truly with 22.  I don't even think I hit double digits on kills that game.

I want to jump into multiplayer as soon as I can but I predict that XBOX Live will be down again due to GTA4.  And when that happens, I'll play the singleplayer campaign.

I think it'll work fine even when 'down' since we won't be using the matchmaking abilities which is the part that throws fits usually.  Remember that we could always do private matches in COD4 even when ranked was worthless.

i really want a racing simulator more than a driving simulator.   not sure if theres anything else for the PS3 right now.   i'm really tempted to get Forza 2 and a wheel.

Forza's going to give you more options and such, but the single player AI is almost as lacking as the GT5P one.  It's slow to a fault (though it's actually more apt to wreck you in a low speed turn).  Really the only races I enjoyed in Forza 2 were the series where all the cars were identical on the hardest difficulty.  Those were by far the most fun.  Other than that, you spend the rest of the time doing what you do in Gran Turismo: intentionally handicapping yourself with a slow enough car for the race that it makes it a challenge.

If you don't intend on running some mp racing, you might be disappointed with Forza 2 in the long run.  It really shines online though and is my favorite 360 game hands down, I just have trouble finding people to play with.  (friends that is, plenty of people play online)

I heard they COD4ified Vegas with the last patch, faster respawns, random respawn locations.  A lot of people are upset apparently.  I haven't played post patch so I can't comment.

That's a shame really, part of what I didn't like about 2 compared to 1 was the move from realistic towards COD4 in damage.  If they took it further it would destroy it's uniqueness even more.  I think if they had fixed the net issues along with moving back to the lethality and lower armor values of the first then I'd probably be playing it instead of COD4
