I've been reading this thing forever...its semi videogame related, so here we go.

From the rating of Angelic Orders @ http://www.bookofratings.com/angels.html

Quote
Seraphim

The highest rank of angels, the Seraphim have the task of constantly circling God and telling Him He's great without actually looking at him. This pretty much fits in with popular notions of core angel skill-sets. The weird thing is that they have six wings and four heads. That's eerie. It's not the sort of thing I associate with angels. That's the sort of thing I associate with Final Fantasy boss monsters. Maybe evangelists could work with that. "Jesus is the ultimate save point" or "Christ is my walkthrough" or "If you spend enough time raising chocobos you can get the ultimate weapon: not going to Hell!"

15852  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Rapture.... on: September 10, 2004, 04:24:41 PM
So I'm sitting here writing reports and listening to Club977.com's streaming 80's.  Blondie's song Rapture comes on....

That song is by far one of the most retarded songs I've ever heard.  Why did it take me until now to realize how stupid it is?  Let me explain...

"Toe to toe dancing very close
Body breathing almost comatose
Wall to wall people hypnotized
And they're stepping lightly
Hang each night in rapture
Back to back sacroiliac
Spineless movement and a wild attack
Face to face sightless solitude
And it's finger popping
Twenty four hour shopping in rapture
Fab Five Freddy told me everybody's fly
DJ spinning I said "My My"
Flash is fast flash is cool
Francois c'est pas flashe non due
And you don't stop sure shot
Go out to the parking lot
And you get in your car and drive real far
And you drive all night and then you see a light
And it comes right down and it lands on the ground
And out comes the man from Mars
And you try to run but he's got a gun
And he shoots you dead and he eats your head
And then you're in the man from Mars
You go out at night eating cars
You eat Cadillacs Lincolns too
Mercurys and Subaru
And you don't stop
You keep on eating cars
Then when there's no more cars you go out at night
And eat up bars where the people meet
Face to face
Dance cheek to cheek
One to one
Man to man
Dance toe to toe
Don't move too slow 'cause the man from Mars is through with
cars
He's eating bars
Yeah wall to wall
Door to door
Hall to hall
He's gonna eat 'em all
Rapture
Be pure
Take a tour through the sewer
Don't strain your brain
Paint a train
You'll be singing in the rain
Said don't stop to the punk rock
back to back, body muscular spinless movement, bite the jugular
one to one
technology
And a ardour, no sign of saviour in Rapture
Well now you see what you wanna be
Just have your party on TV
'Cause the man from Mars won't eat up bars where the TV's on
And now he's gone back up to space where he won't have a hassle
with the
human race
And you hip hop
And you don't stop
Just blast off sure shot
Because the man from Mars stopped eating cars
And eating bars
And now he only eats guitars
Get up!"

Ok....if you can read about the man from Mars eating anything that would rhyme with bars and not wonder just why this song is/was popular...I can't be all alone on this one.

SHADOWBANE: THRONE OF OBLIVION™ ANNOUNCED
 
Extensive Expansion Pack Introduces New Vampire Race for Online Role-Playing Game

SAN FRANCISCO – September 9, 2004 – Ubisoft, one of the world’s top game publishers, announced today the Shadowbane: Throne of Oblivion™ expansion pack will be available at a manufacturer’s retail price of $19.99 on November 30.  The expansion for the critically acclaimed massively multiplayer online (MMO) game Shadowbane® will feature an entirely new realm and rulership system that allows players to seize and vie for control of sections of the game world.

"Shadowbane: Throne of Oblivion brings guild warfare and city sieging to an exciting new level with a strategic end-game that is unprecedented in the genre of MMO games.  ‘Build an Empire’ was one of the early rallying cries of Shadowbane and with this expansion, our players can do exactly that," said Frank Lucero, Shadowbane’s producer.  “Shadowbane: Throne of Oblivion brings with it the new Vampire Race, new classes and disciplines, each with special powers and abilities designed to enrich PvP combat.  Additionally, graphical improvements and extensive refinements to the existing siege system will enrich play and improve performance.”

In addition to the new strategic systems, Shadowbane: Throne of Oblivion will feature extensive new player options centered around an invasion from the Lands of the Dead.  Shadowbane: Throne of Oblivion marks the first time in an MMORPG that players can play Vampire characters.  The Vampires’ clothing and armor will spotlight their supernatural power and allure and demonstrate the appeal of these creatures while exploring a new visual direction for Shadowbane.  Their unique powers, strengths, and weakness will add new layers and tactics to the Shadowbane PvP landscape.

New classes, including the Nightstalker, Necromancer, and disciplines including Vampire bloodlines and four new siege disciplines will also debut in Shadowbane: Throne of Oblivion.  Existing classes and disciplines will be undated to account for the arrival of the undead legions, and new weapons will add new dimensions to the existing power dynamic, forcing players to make new strategic decisions.

Shadowbane: Throne of Oblivion will also feature graphical enhancements, shown off to their fullest in new adventuring areas with all-new high-level content.

Shadowbane: Throne of Oblivion is pending rating by the ESRB and more information can be found on the official Shadowbane community Website, The Chronicle of Strife: chronicle.ubi.com.

Well that's too damned bad.  It has been cancelled due to 'technical difficulties'.   Technical Issues usually boils down to "We'd like to finish the game but technically we'd have to pay you, and that will create difficulties as we technically have no money".  D'oh!

____________
Codemasters has taken the decision to cancel further development of Dragon Empires, the company’s massively multiplayer online role playing project.

Dragon Empires received incredible support from its online community and won acclaim from PC and online media while in development. However, technical issues have resulted in the project’s discontinuation.

Many of the game’s development team, including programmers and artists, are being transferred to Codemasters’ internal development studios to work on current and future titles.

The decision to close Dragon Empires’ development does not impact on Codemasters’ long-term ambitions in the massively multiplayer online gaming market and the company remains very active in evaluating future opportunities.

The Dragon Empires website and its popular community forums will remain live at www.codemasters.com/dragonempires for the immediate future.
