7841  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Vanguard - free month for inactive accounts on: July 03, 2008, 07:46:06 AM
hmm...well, thats - a bit difficult to answer, since, well, all classes play differnetly, which is one of the really big major selling points for me.

As for races, I really really enjoy the dark elves, the quests are pretty darn-right evil, and the racial trait is awesome..basically, you summon a pet dragon that acts as a normal pet for about 1 minute. The dragon will grow, as you gain levels, ending up being much larger than yourself!  eek

Goblins are supposudly great fun as well, although havent taken one beyond lvl 6 myself. Raki are really really cool, small furry catlike people, that has a permanent 10 percent speed increase, and just looks damn cool!

As for classes - Necros are supposedly the best soloing character, but I havent had any trouble at all with any of the other classes (Btw, the three GT'ers that were only last night, were all Necros' slywink And necros also gain incredbily spells - Energy drain from corpses, harvesting corpses to get stuff to your pet, and around lvl 14 or so, you have to choose your form...you can be a freaking LICH for gods sake!!  icon_eek

Disciple is a martial arts healer, with some of the coolest animations I've seen in a MMO, and he's pretty nigh unkillable, being able to both heal and attack with both Energy(Mana-stuff) and Jin, which you gain by kicking and hitting stuff :-)

Bloodmage, is one of the most controversial classes - either people love them, or hate them - basically, they are healers, who deal in blood and death, and it takes a while to master/understand them...they are both Nukers and healers -havent tried them., but should be great fun :-)

hope that helped a bit!

oh wait, Dreadknights..eh..wow! Paladins who dont heal, but suck the living bejeesus out of their enemies, tanking with two-handers as well!!

How do you download this? I got the email but now I cant find it. I never owned it but was in beta.

you can through the station installer, but my guess it it will done close to the expiration of the free month - I'll see if I can find where you can download the client, and then patch it afterwards, much faster!
7844  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Vanguard - free month for inactive accounts on: July 03, 2008, 07:00:51 AM
It does rain, and sometimes, you can just see it - like something in the corner of your eye, that is always just almost there, but never completely..appearently, according to devs, its just to fine on vista, to be visible to the human eye...
But my rabbit loves it...

Anyways, I've seen 4 different people now, and 3 at once in the GT Channel - we need more! lots more!

While the movie itself was very well done, and the story was okay, I cringed the whole way through, and kept thinking "is this what they did with Asimov's great story"?

I was a bit saddened, that they had included the three laws of robotics (From Isaac Asimovs books) only to have the main (robotic) character be free of them...

While I'd probably enjoy a follow-up as the popcorn flick it was, I'd much rather see a true Asimovian movie :-)
7846  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Funniest/Craziest MMO Moment on: July 03, 2008, 06:12:40 AM
So, whats your most fun/crazy/interesting MMO experience ?

The reason I was thinking about this, was Reemul talking about Vanguard last night, and what he saw - some monster walking through town near him, huuuuge, filling up his whole monitor - definitely a WOW (not to be confused with WoW) moment!

One of the most interesting things I had happen to me in an MMO, was in the open beta for Age of Conan, when first I'd been trying to go up some stairs in Aquilonia, but kept sinking into the ground. So, I looked around a bit,and tried talking with the various NPCs around the area...well, one of them appearently wasn't taking it anymore, for he did his superman thing, and just flew off up into the air at a crazy speed! Now THAT was a LOL moment...

In Vanguard, first time I took the "fog" off, allowing me to see great distances, climbing off a mountainroad, and seeing the grand city of Khal for the first time, with its huge statues, incredible harbour area and then realizing that WOW - I can actually go there, and it will look like that..its just not scenery.... a great moment!

so - whats your most wow MMO moments?

thanks for sharing - think I'll wallpaper a few of these :-)

AoC sucks!!!  icon_twisted

hehe, nah, just kidding - I actually liked it, just giving it some time to mature, and see how it develops...and meanwhile, I'll continue to post things about my current favorite MMO..

Prediction: In 4 months, I'll be posting like crazy about Warhammer, saying how great it is, having bought it day one....then, after a month, I'll give up in disgust, and start playing AoC, telling everyone how it matured and how the developers really care ;-)

oh, I forgot to add, Seradon is highest population server right now , thus making grouping a lot easier - mark hit "Medium" server population last night :-)
7855  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [Vanguard] GT/OO Guild on: July 01, 2008, 12:58:14 PM
All my now 12 characters are on Seradon, and I know many others have characters there now as well... Of course, if people want so, please go ahead, I know I'm going to stay there though :-)

oh, and both I , Reemul and one more was in GT last night ;-)

Hi all,
was talking to Reemul the other night, about making a GT/OO guild.

Would the upcoming weekend be a good time forpeople to be online, so that we can make the guild?

Also, feel free to post any ideas for whatever name we should pick for ourselves :-)
7857  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [Vanguard]how to get in touch with each other on Seradon on: June 30, 2008, 09:36:44 PM
Weel, Reemul and I am in the channel right now . just need 4 more people to make the guild, so comeon! join GT and lets make the guild! ;-)
7858  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [Vanguard]how to get in touch with each other on Seradon on: June 30, 2008, 06:17:53 PM
you can also just type / and then the channel number

when you join the GT channel, the chatbox will display the number its assigned to :-)

Tentonhammer has a lot of usefull information.

but, if I were you, I'd compile my questions, and post them on the offical forums. VG has the best and most mature community I've ever seen, and they are very good at answering peoples questions

A question more - someone mentioned reinforcing the drum pedal, how does one go about doing that?

and DAMN some of those songs make use of the bigbang drum a lot!!

get a thin, but not too thin piece of wood and screw it down on the pedal. or buy one of those pedal covers from amazon. i would just order a destroyer if you wanna get into hard and expert. i can not express how much those rock.

a...destroyer?? Like in a Star Destroyer?

The other good thing is all the new players are low level, most didn't play it long enough to get any high level toons. So plenty of activity at the lower levels.

Reemul, I tried adding you,and last you were online, was 2007 according to the friends panel?

Hi all,

I just figured this out - when you enter the game, type /join GT

then you'r in the GT channel, and we can keep track of each other and all our alts (I have ten, hehe)

hope to see you all there!!

oh, btw, afterwards, I think you can type /autojoin and select GT as a channel to join every time!

What do you mean make it like Singstar?  If you mean have two people sing at once, you can do that if you have two mics (any USB mic should work).  There's two head to head modes, both under the Quickplay option (I think).  Score duel has both players playing the whole song at the same difficulty, highest score wins.  Tug of War has them trading back and forth (like Singstar), they can play at different difficulties, and there's a meter to show who's winning. 

If you mean making it like Singstar where the note tubes don't scroll across the screen, you can pause the game with the controller and turn on static vocal style, which is pretty much the same as Singstar.  Though I'd strongly recommend getting used to the default scrolling vocals, as it's much easier to get the rhythm right, I think.

meant more microphones and people singing in some sort of duel yes, and thanks for the answers..the GF is going to be ecstatic about that ;-)
7871  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Rockband] New owner - any tips? on: June 28, 2008, 05:09:52 PM
Well, I finally got my parcel from the local postoffice ;-)

And WOW - just..Oh dead and fluffy lord - Wow! eek

This be fun!! I've tried out all 3 things on my own, and later tonight a few friends will come over for some multiplayer, so going to be fun exploring that.

Drums I REALLY love, its so fun! only thing is, I have troulbe finding the right way to sit, so that my foot rests properly while not banging the bigdrum - I understood now about the drum stool.

The guitar is very different from the GH3 I have, a bit more toylike, but its okay, the singing is great fun, I wonder if its possible to make some sort of multiplayer thingie here, where you can sing like in Singstar?

The only bad thing is, that since I live in europe, the download store is somehow disabled, all tracks are "currently unavailable" , Im assuming thats because Its an import, and those tracks are for US only -we'll see what happens when the game hits Euro stores

Hmm, toughie - but here's answers from my point of view

1) Lots and lots and lots of stuff to do! There's three ways to advance in levels in the game, ADventuring, Crafting and diplomacy (Oh, and its NOT Instanced)

2) High maintenance - i.e. its a bit powerhungry, if you want all the bells and whistles of the graphics

All and all, this is the game I've been waiting for, 16 different classes, 19 races, all with different abilities, althugh, racials arent that powerfull but some are very very fun, as the dragon the dark elves can summon, which grows in size...

The game is very open, many places to go and all that, and, to answer one of your unasked quesitons, Seradon is growing a LOT in population these days :-)

Bland?!! They have a freaking shadowstep (a teleport that puts you behind an enemy)! smile

Seriously though, like in many other games, you have to level a char to a certain level before you can safely come to some conclusions regarding the skills of this class and whether you will have fun playing it. IMO in VG it's lvl 10. If I remember correctly.

Razgon, have you created a guild on Seradon? How many people you've got there now?

no, havent created a guild, you need a full group (6) people to do so, and I havent found many OO'ers online yet, probably due to GF slywink But, have all weekend free, (Rockband aside) and will be playing a lot there - let me know if people want to create a guild - then, we'll do so :-)

Vanguard also has a cool feature called "Brotherhood".  Read more about it here:

http://vanguard.tentonhammer.com/index.php?module=ContentExpress&func=display&ceid=832

I've read the link, but I still don't understand the difference between the two types. The idea sounds VERY cool though.

something really cool is, that you can actually level up your alts at the same time as your main...by being in brotherhood with yourself :-)

My GH3 is named Gibson, that isnt GH3 Les Paul , is it? Its wireless though , so, really hope it works - I Assume you can then use two guitars at the same time, with the drums and singing thingie? meaning, 4 people can actually play?

Four people can play at once as long as you have 4 USB ports, a mic, a drum set, and two Rock Band Fender Stratocasters.

The GH3 Gibson on the 360 will work on the 360 version of Rock Band, but the PS3 Gibson will not work on the PS3 Rock Band because of petty corporate asshattery on Activision's part.

thanks for the clarification - guess I'll have to invest in a Les Paul then for those RB parties :-)
