My Dark Knight (or is it Hunter?) just got killed in one hit this morning... pretty much my last straw.  I replaced him with a bard in the back row: not sure if I'll regret not choosing an alchemist instead, but I'm always a big fan of passive skills.

The alchemist deals mega damage in the early levels, but I'm getting the feeling that this won't necessarily be the case later on.

My Landrover is the big hitter of the group everyone is level 31), but I have done nothing but max out his damage skills. With my alchemist I spent a lot of levels getting her TP regen and neglected impoving her damage skills. She's still my second biggest damage dealer, and mana is usually not an issue anymore.

And I still think the Darkhunter is worth it at later levels. My Protector will be the first to go when I can upgrade to a new class.

You're telling me these guys don't look angsty?

Oh and keytars are SO metal!

LOL. The drummer giving the finger is also classic.

Got to say though, they are just going for a market. It's just like Slayer, Venom, etc, they are try to sell an image that they think people will like. They are going for the old Dio crowd and trying to play the part. Metal has always been a lot like pro wrestling in my book.

I wanted to comment on these two paragraphs.

Obviously, you haven't done enough research into "modern" metal.  There's far far more to modern metal than yelling and screaming and angst.  Many, many metal bands, especially ones from Europe, feature lead singers who truly can sing.

Also many can sacrfice a goat as if they were a butcher on their day job.

I would say 95% of modern metal is crap, especially the European bands who are trying to sell the whole "Look at us, we are more Satanic than Slayer" act.

Yeah, but it may be so great that I will never want to play anything else. Many games I have not agreed with the reviews, games I loved. You are probably right though, it sounds disappointing, I was just wondering if you played it.

However, even back in the day I was never into the more extreme metal bands: slayer, voivoid (sp) or the death metal stuff so it was interesting to get a glimpse into that world too- though much of it left me a bit disturbed given where I am in my life now.

Listening to that kind of music is why I am where I am in my life right now.

Death row at Attica?

Could you elaborate?

I was just joking. As much as I love music, it has never affected my life.

My dark hunter (whip) is level 29 and she isn't bad and can hold her own now. She does more damage than my Protector and her bind skills come in handy. If anyone is going to die, it is her, but it's rare now.

Starting to lose my patience with this game. 2 races today, both as Ferrari (but different tracks), identical driving style settings. One race, no problems, win it with 20 seconds to spare. The other, dropped 9 places from a bad start. 2 driving errors, one resulting in a pit. 2 mechanical problems, first one damaging the car serverly, the second one taking me out. I keep lowering my settings and I am still not consistent.

It is somehow hilarious to me that someone tagged "Gwar" posted 'Ew" in response to a video with a one second flash scene of some spooge.

+1, I don't think Gwar took his name after the band. They don't seem to be a very Christian band.

The actress added that her sexuality is nobody's business, and that if she had to prove anything to people, she would have released a sex video long ago.

"If I wanted people to know what I do with my vagina I would have released a sex video a long time ago. Yet I haven't done that," she said.

For the life of my I can't figure out what she's trying to say.

That if she wanted you to know about her sex life, she would have showed you.

Oh, and PAX is not about games, it's about gamers. Card, Dice, video, miniature, etc... It's like saying the Circus is trying to replace the Zoo. Sure, they both have animals.

True, but a lot of gamers have dubbed it the new E3 (in E3's past form), that's why I cried.

They can have it.  E3 was not about gamers, it was about games. 

I thought E3 was about hype and marketing myself.

Yes the text is small for the intro. Once you are done with the intro, no big deal.

Very fun so far. Basic game play, but one of those games that looks like it could take a lot of time to master. A majority of the game is spent trading, so it looks like it will be fun multiplayer.

Basic game play:

Each map tile has a number assigned to it, when that number is rolled everyone who has a settlement/city bordering it gets that tile's resource. The beginning of each players turn the dice are rolled. Resources are used to build new settlements/cities, roads, and buy cards.

Roads extend where you can build settlements. Settlements/cities allow you to get resources. Cards give little bonuses. Like an Army card lets you move the robber which makes any tile fertile (when that number is rolled, no one gets any resources from the tile the robber is on).

Get 10 victory points to win. Settlements= 1 point, City=2 points. Longest road=2 points IIRC. Person who uses the army card most=2 points.

So a typical turn seems to be, rolling the dice, collecting any resources for it. Decide what you want to build and then try to trade resources to get what resources you need to build what you want. Trading is a huge part of the game, in fact you spend most of your time trading.

For instances if I want to build a city (2 wheat, 3 granites) but I only have wood and sheep, I spend most of my turn trying to get players to trade me what I want.

Seems like it will be a blast multi-player.

I didn't see a demo option. Maybe I overlooked it?

Anyway, looks good, BUT, the game locked up on me. Not that lock up is the right term, I could still move the map, check the info screens, etc, but 2 computer players traded, I got a message saying they were doing so and it just sat there for 10 minutes. Couldn't skip to my turn or anything else, finally had to turn the game off.
2676  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XBLA Triple Shot this week - Catan, Millipede, and Centipede [56k] on: May 02, 2007, 03:48:31 PM
