Most of what has been said here I can agree on - one thing though - start getting some regular excercise, and you will get a lot more energy, getting you through the day...

other than that, suck it up kiddo, a lot of things are getting a lot better from now on for you...especially the sex ;-)

Take a look at the dwarf at the cover of the warhammer fantasy rpg book...look at the chest size of the dwarf, the size of his arms, and of course, the pure savage fury in his face, testamenting to his adrenaline pumped body...

Now, take your average orc, somewhat dumb, lazy, and not really that skilled in combat, since they have size going for them...

see? stereotyping goes both ways ;-)

Anyways, I'd actually enjoy playing a dwarven tank, and rp'ing one... And, I guess I'll be needed a lot then if the above is the general consensus :-)

I'm finding the game quite satisfying so far.

** Satelite tracking systems engaged
** Harkonis located through cellphone triangulation
** Orbital Laser targetting system engaged
** Cell phone text messaging engaged "Harkonis , hand over your spore copy or be obliterated"

well?

...leveling a character in a couple of weeks

Out of curiosity, which MMO allows you to level in a couple of weeks?

If you're talking about /played - then most current MMOs allow that. If not, then it's all about how much you play during the day - where it still takes at least a month for casual players in WoW and those with a similar curve. I believe it's common to level to 70 in ~7-8 days /played (WoW) on average - so you can do the math yourself.

ugh...that took me 19 days with my first lvl 60....damn RP'ing...
7685  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The "no-penalty" death trend on: August 26, 2008, 11:36:09 AM
one of the greatest games I've ever played, would never let you die...and I absolutely loved it... Secret of the Monkey Island - they even joked about it ingame... anyways ,for me, its the journey, the mood, the setting and the whole package together, that makes a game. In cases of games like Doom, death is certainly a large part of it, and as such, you SHOULD be punished for it, for it adds to the adrenalin experience...

"oh god, oh god, we're all going to die" ;-)
7686  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / [MMO's] Realisticly, what did you expect? on: August 25, 2008, 06:42:15 PM
So, I've thought about this quite a bit, and, I must say, I'm confused...

Every time there's a new MMO, or a big change to one, people get very excited... They talk about this will be the next-gen MMO, the WoW-killer and so on, and other say "nah, same ol' same ol"..

so, realisticly, what do you expect, when a new MMO releases? What will make the game "good" to you? I have a feeling that most of us here, are (jaded) old-time-gamers, i.e. we've played a lot of games, and seriously, how much have games changed over the last 5 years or so? Not much, and, I dont see anything truly revolutionary coming this way for a long time, due to constraints of our gaming-rigs and of course, the nature of gaming itself.

This leads to disappointment when the new game arrives, and after a few months, most of us here, have moved one..a few hardcore ones stay behind, and once in a while, we return to it...

I think, that what most of us here are looking for, isnt the next-gen MMO, but, a new thing...something shiny and new, and not the same old thing we've seen so many times before, in new clothing...

so, realistically, what do you expect, when a new MMO comes out? What would be YOUR game you could play forever!!
7687  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Galciv II - Editions to play? on: August 25, 2008, 03:10:35 PM
THanks a lot, guys! I loved the old Galvic, did a fair bit of beta testing on it (and got the T-shirt to prove it ;-) ), so, I'll probably try a few scenarios as well :-)

Twilight, here I come!
7688  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Galciv II - Editions to play? on: August 25, 2008, 09:24:01 AM
So, after the great AAR, I caved and got the entire Galciv II collection. My question is, is there any reason NOT to be playing the latest, Twilight of the Arnors, instead of the previous editions? Isnt it the same game, just enhanced?

Ok, trying to play for first time, getting an error "Failed to create render device - application will now terminate". Any idea what drivers etc are required? Mine haven't been updated in a while probably, but I don't recall any similar issues... Can my system even work?

I also have an older system that is obviously not ideal (though I could re-download to my wife's which is a bit newer).

Athlon XP 2800
1GB ram
Radeon X800 GTO

first off, I assume you'r running xp? Vista needs 2gb ram to run the game, I seem to remember, and generally, you'd be a lot better of with some more ram. Rendering devices is your graphics card, you should always update that to the newest edition of driver - both for perfomance but also for it to actually work with newer games :-)
7692  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XBL/PSN]Star Wars :The Force Unleashed demo Impressions on: August 22, 2008, 08:54:50 PM
Devs said the intro was supposed to run like a tutorial, breaking you easy into the game, thus, the first level is of course, pretty easy to deal with. I imagine, that as you start out without major powers, and have to earn them, the game gets harder. Also, for me the storyline is a huge part of wanting to play this game.

One of the reasons I loved MGS4 and Assasins Creed, was the storylines in them.

Anyways, downloading the demo now, cant wait!!
7693  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer Online headed to Open Beta on 9/7 on: August 22, 2008, 10:35:43 AM
Good luck in the preview weekend, guys! be sure to post your impressions here :-)

as usual though (whine follows), EU gets screwed over, since the preview took the euro partner GOA by surprise...sigh... Which doesnt bode well for the european release as I see it, when something as simple as this wasnt communicated...
7694  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer Online headed to Open Beta on 9/7 on: August 21, 2008, 11:13:58 AM
seems to me like a pointless argument...you feel that way - fine, other feel another way, also fine.

I for one am very excited - of course, my prediction is that exactly the same will happen in this game for me, as in any other MMO. I'll play it like mad, post stuff here like mad for a few months, then, I'll cancel the subscribtion, and return to it every other odd month, and have some fun. The game looks good enough for some continued fun, the same way WoW and vanguard has given me.

The only thing that could really keep me in it, is a great rp guild, and some RP support from War as well, giving a few options to really rp the way Warhammer fantasy RP is supposed to be rp'ed :-)

Anyone who can tell me if ther'es more to it than the demo?

I can already tell, my pre-order wasnt in vain :-)

A few questiosn though, about servers - are there any RP servers? How many character slots can you have on each server? or how does that work? Also, will it be possible to have both order and Destruction toons on the same server? Thanks! and keep up the good work!

yeah, saw the us site had opened up for beta code entering now - good luck with that, guys :-)

Us euro'es will have to wait it seems, until they deem it important enough to update the euro site with the same options...

for any europeans interested in what/whens for the euro part of the game, take a look here, where an offical GOA q&a is located

http://www.only-war.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=26834

I still say that if I was you, I'd gamble on playing on the US servers with a US copy of the game.  You'd have greater lag, but you'd be playing with such good people. slywink
I'm very tempted, actually! I still fondly remember the battles I've had with some of you guys in Battlefield 2 :-)

But, I pre-ordered the euro version, and until I know, whether the lag is an issue, I'll stick with that :-)

So, anyone else saw the video for this? Linger in shadows? I've tried digging up some more info on it, and there is a lot of diverging information about it. Some say its a Demo (as in demo from the demoscene), others claim its a prelude to some game...

anyone else know anything about it? The music is awesome, and its rather interesting to look at as well..

oh and btw, if anyone recognizes the music, please let me know what it is!

The new art direction is pretty interesting, and I must say, I'm a bit excited about this...Looks rather much like a cartoon movie now actually, and I think it will work pretty dang well!
