As for "being google" being a problem - every company needs good competion to both grow by, and to make sure it doesnt grow too lazy/complacent...

this however, doesnt seem to be it...

7804  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / [Vanguard] How many actually play/make a guild? on: July 29, 2008, 03:10:50 PM
So, how many actually play this game right now?

As of right now, there isnt a OO/GT guild, but, seeing how many people seems to play, if we could just get 6 people online at the same time, we can make a guild easily

oh, and remember, join the GT channel by typing /join GT and we can find eachother easily in that channel :-)

Disarm - could you please space your text a bit..I Get a headache from trying to read that :-)

Other than that - we still need to know if its in the upper or lower jaw the OP's op is going to take place...i.e. will it go smoothly, or will he be suffering like hell ;-)

NOW I KNOW!!! I had this game confused with the other kinda fighting/adventure game, where there was a great story in it - where you were Kain I think the name was...some semi-vampire who was a do-goodie?

Soul Reaver!  Heh, yeah, the series are *quite* different. 

hehe, yeah, okay, I DID get it mixed up - thanks for the clarification :-)

It seems to be a national thing - in the us, Mamma Mia hasnt done that well, whereas in the UK its the number one box office hit so far...4,5 million pounds so far.

Americans are...generally speaking, hollywood fixated, movie-wise, and mamma mia smells very european I suspect, thus not generating that much interest.

thats my take on it, anyways

Not to mention the fact that ABBA sucks.

thats one opinion, certainly - but the pure cold fact is, that ABBA's music spoke to millions of people, and they were, at their time, one of the top bands ever to make music....

People STILL like their music, enough to make a movie like this succesfull (or semi in the states, if you count a third place semi-succesfull), and enough to have a LOT of people still go see the musical this movie is based upon...

Full anesthetic.???? for a wisdomtooth removal?? ookay, well, I've never heard of that before - In denmark its just local anesthetic, goodbye tooth, and you'r good to go home... no trouble whatsoever..

of course, you've just had minor surgery, so common sense is to be observed...

Btw, beware if its in the lower jaw - the lower part of your jawbone has to as strong as the entire upper part of your skull, making it a bitch at times, and it may hold on pretty well to your tooth. Anyways, that should be caught by any decent dentist.

We gamers are a funny sort-a-bunch... others (non-gamers) may see our games as totally unrealistic, but we dont, since we understand the world they are coming from, and THAT is why Yoda and DV doesnt make sense like this....

its kinda ruins the immersion...

One thing I wish with this game (along with Conan) - every race can't be every class. I SO loved that with EQ2. It really needs to be the standard nowadays.

And it's interesting - while playing EQ2 the other day, the conversation somehow diverged to Vanguard - a lot of people said that Vanguard has the best combat system out of all the MMOs today.

I dont understand what you are saying - in Vanguard every race CAN'T be every class...as it CAN'T be in EQ2, and in Conan as well...

Thanks LD. Is the Monk also a secondary healer type?

you'r probably thinking of the Disciple - the melee oriented healer - he uses the same basic attack style (martial arts) as the monk

As for secondary, he's actually a damn good healer, while also able to punish foes incredibly...
7819  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Soul Caliber IV - Are you buying it? on: July 28, 2008, 12:28:42 PM
eh...Darth Vader?? Yoda??? WTF??

Didnt Soul Caliber games use to be rather cool japanese style games, with a great story, or am I confusing them with something else??

anyways, looks boring pure fight-till-one-drops-like, with 10 gazillion ways to do things, and in the end, you can just crouch and hit someone and they die...

and..eh. DARTH VADER? YODA??? WTF??!

As for the stalker game, well...that actually happened in russia not so many years ago ;-)

Those are all great suggestions and I will find one of those, but I think I was looking more towards a more open-ended game where you could be a pirate if you wished, build an empire with confiscated ships, etc.

Thanks all!! smile


Sooo....you want Elite in extreme? hell, you and me both! ;-) but actually...I dont think that game exists. perhaps Eve can rock your boat a little, but, didnt do it for me, but thats a bit close to what you want...

Heagemonia, Iron Legion...thats what you'r looking for...

and the other games in that series, cant remember the names right now...

IMPERIUM GALACTICA! one and two! thats exactly what your looking for - you start out with one small fleet, some basic tech, and then you get to command larger and larger ones...

anyways, I have money on venture co, alliance side, and horde side on Ravenholdt, if you wanna do something there someday ;-)

I'm curious, does that 10 trial for returning players reactivate your old account or just give you a new one?  I'm trying to hold off resubbing until the expac, but I'm bored of all the games I have now so it's hard to resist.

As for RP-PVP, I remember trying out one of those servers once, but it seemed like no one did any RPing so I wonder what's the point.

I was the guilmaster of an RP guild for 2 years on a Rp-Pvp server - we had an rp-raiding coalition with 6 other rp guilds, doing lots of rp - If you want rp, you have to do it yourself as well, or know a guild or persons that do it... was pretty fun , our intro to Molten Core was a rather fun RP event where the guildmaster of another rp guild was murdered and..eh, you dont care biggrin

Anyways - I'm tempted tals...but, I cant stand the LOL in /say on non-rp servers, sorry :-)

hmm...although, if I was just grouping with you...bah..I DONT KNOW!

perhaps, a new druid?
7830  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Returning to WOW on: July 22, 2008, 08:33:42 AM
Why not go to one of the real mens servers, the RP-PvP servers? ;-)

anyways, best of luck to you in WoW tals, I have too many games right now to take up WoW, although I like it - I'll let you when that changes ;-)

I just discovered the Gnome starting area on Saturday.  I was running through the desert minding my own business.  All of a sudden, a shadow appears over me.  I'm thinking it was just another graphics glitch, but I looked up to see if I was under a big tree or something. 

What I saw was this giant griffon (with rider) flying away.  Apparently, the griffon cast the shadow when it got over me.  Anyway, following it with my eyes, the rider was heading to this enormous structure built into the side of a mountain.  It looked way too cool to pass up, so I ran over to check it out.  I've been there ever since just exploring.  It is the Gnome's main city.  I went to a cavern inside the city the gnomes call the "deepdark".  There is a castle there that belongs to the Underking.  Very cool looking place!


hehe, its a cool place - I have a gnome who started in there...rather cool - and yes, THIS is what I love about Vanguard - its so friggin' huge, and not "Oblivion huge"(not dissing obli here, dont worry), but with lots and lots of different stuff to see and explore...and I'm an explorer by heart I think :-)

Oh, one more thing, if anyone is interested, Reemul and I have joined a pretty nice guild, who is more or less mostly American so it should suit lots of you people interested. House Andronnai - run by a grandmother, if you can believe it :-D

Anyways, its a cool guild, with fun people, so try talking with them if you want, or look around for me or Reemul in the GT Chat channel :-)

I got fed up with the crafting (big surprise there), diplomacy is still worthless (and probably always will be) and lost interest in the questing/adventuring. Plus my old characters were a different server than everyone else, and I wasn't thrilled with the new character I made on the GT server. Bottom line is that I'm out for now, but it was nice visiting. I could always come back in the future.



hmm..got a mount at lvl 2, some 12 slot saddlebags for it as well, and I'm lvl 5 diplomacy? not that useless, in my opinon.

Anyways, like every other game, the game isnt for everyone... I even enjoy the crafting...so far at least - the rewards are pretty cool from it.

eh...well..I have a similar kinda trouble, and, eh...my process explorer (joblist?) is gone now...greyed out... reinstall?

Yes, it was. Though you had to be a PvP'er to hold that opinion. PvE'ers would definitely like WoW over SWG. PvP'ers who experienced base assaults that would lasts hours a day for multiple days would probably tend to agree with me.

what are people who played that game on? because I get tired after a few hours of playing...

anyways - I'm excited - Bioware makes excellent games, has a solid foundation to so from, and has a good grasp of how to engage players IMO.
