Thanks a lot, Marik!! I'll try it out then, I love space 4x games... and this seems like a gem, if only I understood it!
7682  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Sword of the Stars: A Murder of Crows Expansion Announced! on: August 15, 2008, 09:43:26 AM
eh, am I the only one reading that as "A Murder of Cows"??

anyways, I love 4x games, but have never been able to get into these games..maybe I should give it a whirl again...

anyone mind telling me what the difference is between this kind of game, and games like MAster of Orion kinda games?

You know the expression wow, and you no doubt have heard of the horrible concept of war.

Well, I think there's a good chance I might prefer the concept over the expression at this stage.

I'm guessing the North American beta workedout for you then?

anyways, the european website is half-finished it seems. The codes your recieve from buying the pre-order, cant even be registered at the site yet...

I've heard the orcs have nipples you can play with though...

Bought the pre-order, and got the codes last night...unfortunately, the site was down all day..sigh...

Any word yet on open beta?

well, the first book would be cool actually on film...that I'm pretty sure of. and if they could round it off nicely, without it being too much of a cliffhanger, that should work with the great unwashed masses as well...

Yeah, the game is freakishly hard at times...especially, since, there is only a definite amount of enemies to "level-up-on" on each map, making it really hard, if you dont survive and gain levels...

Does anyone know what the art style is called? I'm actually looking for some new paintings and would love the same style, but I just cant put my bony finger on what the art style could be called...

sooo...

I've noticed lately, that a lot of people crosspost, and even make us aware of it.

Why do you do so? It kinda seems funny to me, since its the same posts that are here, and on OO, and the same people, and lots of times, the same responses...

should we just go ahead and make a function that posts on both forums at the same time?

btw..this is crossposted over at OO

so, die-hard trekkies will moan and groan, but those of us just wishing for a great sci-fi adventure set in the Star Trek universe, should at least go into it with an open mind

And personally, I have two dates: Right before the next Star Trek movie launches (May of 2009 if I remember right)

I don't think they could safely rush it out that quickly;  that'd be a 16 month development cycle for a MMO.

sure,. but, 4 years doesnt exactly either make a great MMO everytime... I dont think its a matter of production time, but more production values...

it's ridicously good and cool looking, so yeah, day one purchase for me as well...the gameplay can be hellish if it wants to, as long as I get to drool over the amazing artwork, oozing atmosphere...

its really strange, because, I cant put a finger on the style...its not normal fantasy, nor gothic, its...well, disciples!

Hell, the servers here in europe still crashed 2 years ago, whenever you gathered for some World Pvp.

I remember having organized an RP event, where alliance 6 guilds would start in Stranglethorn together, and the word quickly spread to horde, making a few horde guilds appear as well...or rather, appear, then everything turned to a fotosession, and finally ,the server crashed...

Aaanyways, I've had my share of lootlag, and server crashes, but, all in all, it was a pretty good launch in europe, as I see it.

The thing is...it just seems kinda..empty to me..there's no story, as I can tell? Of course, the fact that I dont really like platformers are a huge impact on my wishes for this title...

If it was a world builder, instead of just a platformgame builder, as I actually thought it was, I'd be interested...

I dont understand what this game's appeal is...

as I see it, there's no story, no game other than a platform thing, and yes, you can make all kinds of stuff, but...really, who really does these things? With all the games available to us today, do we want to make our own game now?

I dont - lost all interest in this now....

edit: oh, and I take bets on how long before someone makes a sexlevel... my guess - 24 hours...

Since they aren't actually a sanctioned order of the Church what leads them to believe they're due anything other than a beating for being so presumptuous? finger

huh? they were a sanctioned order of the church - thats what gave them so much power - they were an integrated part of christian society, which meant a huge vacuum, when the pope declared them heretics. And remember, the only reason they did so, was because of King Philip the 4th owing them such a huge amount of money, thus making it easier to brand them as heretics than pay up...

I'm refering to the folks presently referring to themselves as Knights Templar, instead of the local SCA chapter that they really are.

huh? Why do you think they are so? People cant be heirs to the Knight Templars now? I dont think anyone is claiming to actually BE a knight templar right now...

Interestingly enough, according to wiki, the roman catholic churcs current position is that the persecution was injust, and the templars wrongfully accused. Furtheremore, there's a document, called the Chinon Parchment that says that in 1308 the Pope Clement V secretly absolved the knights templars as well...so, they ARE absolved??

7720  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Knight-Templars heirs sue the pope on: August 06, 2008, 06:58:49 AM
So, in what I think is pretty interesting news, descendants of the Knights Templar order is now suing the pope, for having seized the KT's treasures after the wrongfull accusation of heresy and witchcraft in 1307.

Interestingly enough, although the amount is around 1 billion dollars in regulated money, they dont want money, but just want the name of the order and their forefathers cleared.

I can only link to the danish article , unfortunately

http://jp.dk/udland/europa/article1403821.ece

One thing I thought about when reading this, is, how can you be a descendant of an order?? I mean yes, the man, but the order? no!

I'm assuming those who are suing are nobles though, since they are probably pretty much the only ones with a proven and well enough documented heritage to go back 700 years... I mean,  I barely know who my grandparent where...

I do wonder how the catholic church responds to this, seeing as they have to admit that the killing of a lot of men was wrongfull, and only done to appease King Philip the 4th. (and NOT because of the whole grail thing, conspiracy nuts!)
