7841  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Any Interest in the WoW Adventures? on: July 04, 2008, 09:42:29 AM
Interesting..

a question about RP on the server...why did you choose it?

I read your comments about "But hardly anyone is roleplaying" as if you meant that as an added bonus - am I right?

Not judging here, just asking because I'm curious :-)

I just remembered!! In WoW, you could raid the Trolls' gods, cant for the life of me remember his name, at lvl 60 - when we fought one specific boss, he would suddenly yell DING! and the troll god would yell back "GRATS"  icon_biggrin I doubled over in laughter first time I saw that!

funny thing is, on the RP server I played, he was reported for speaking Out of Character, and it had to be removed :-D now THAT is hilarious!
7843  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Any Interest in the WoW Adventures? on: July 04, 2008, 08:12:58 AM
Try a mor relaxed guild, for instance an RP guild?

I used to run an RP guild on a RP-PvP server, teamed up with a few others, and had great fun raiding Molten Core pre-BC, and the dragon lair thingie, and the other one, with the trollgod? who yelled Ding? - people were of course expected to do the right things to make the raid work, there's specific ways to deal with the mobs in there, but its a LOT more relaxed than hardcore raiding guilds -we did it for the fun of it

well, I've read most of what Asimov's written, and didnt recognize anything in it..except for the three laws of course and the title ;-)

I do seem to remember it saying somewhere that was "loosely based on I, Robot"...which was actually a bunch of stories collected in a book

I think the Outer Limits did a version of I, Robot that was supposed to be pretty faithful.  I don't think any of Asimov's Robot stories had big explosions and gun fights.

Asimov's stories are hard science fiction mostly, and not even with strong characters. It's hard to characterize what drives them, but mostly its events and science that has the central stage in them. Thus, the typical hollywood people will have a hard time making a movie about them, because as you say, there's not really any exposions or gunfights typically in these movie.

I'm guessing the female combat animation bug is not with the Ranger class as I haven't noticed anything that seems slow combat wise.  Maybe one day they'll decide what to do with Salvo-  either make it work like it's description says (3 arrows shoot at once) or change the description to say it shoots 3 arrows in rapid succession with extra damage, which is what it does right now.

If I understand it correctly, the time difference between the animations is about 0.1s - 0.2s, so it's nothing you would notice unless you are parsing your damage into a file and analyze it later on.

which, in my opinion, still is way to much - I read somewhere it was around 20 percent reduction compared to male animations in DPS

and therein lies the hub of my beef with AoC - its a beautifull game, full of great ideas, but, the implementation of everything just seems...amateurish, unfortunately.

Dont get me wrong, I couldn't do it better, but with the current games out there, I expect professionalism, like people do from me in my job, when I charge them 140 dollars an hour for what I do.

I suspect its a matter of project management that made the overall game suffer.

I'm going out this Saturday night with the gang from work.  The hot-tub crew will be there, and I'm saying YES over, and over in my head a thousand times.

I will not let those down, that are living vicariously through me!

sooo....inquiring minds wants to know....what happened?
7848  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!
7851  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!
7852  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Watched iRobot on: July 03, 2008, 06:15:10 AM
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 :-)
7853  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?

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 :-)

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 ;-)
7878  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
