Aye you could be right, then again that's the headline it was under. Of course having a facelift doesn't necessarily mean you look better either  icon_biggrin

I've picked this up for 10 just waiting for it to be delivered, fingers crossed for installation issues. 10 for a new release is a great price, available from play.com if anyone is interested.

Another thing i find is when i drop back into LOTRO, AoC or WoW etc i am no longer in a guild and to be honest most of the games work much much better in a guild. Normally i don't really play enough to apply to guilds yet if i had a guild i may play more.

Anyways keep us updated about AoC as i have a level 20ish toon i may be tempted to play with.

So, decided to resub Age of Conan this christmas, since I had some spare time, and was a bit bored with all the niceness in LOTOR and the bugginess of WAR.

And, I cant for the life of me understand why I ever quit - the game is sooo beautiful, and the first 20 levels are sooo damn fun - took 2 characters through Tortage, a Conquerer and a Necromancer, and had a ton of fun!

The game itself runs beautifully now, Funcom having optimized the game engine quite a lot, and there's a lot of newly added content as well, not the least of which is the PVP Notoriorty system, which punishes gankers. Also, I'll have to dig this one up, but come january server mergers will occur, and a new big content patch will arrive as well.

All in all, the game is great, I'm having a ton of fun, and the gritty, dirty world of Conan (With Nekkid Boobbbiiiiess) is so much more fun than the clean LOTRO to me right now

Aye but you say that about all of em  icon_biggrin

Personally i feel the same, each one when going bak to it seems great for a week or 2 and then the rot sets in. I really really want a new MMO to play, LOTRO, AoC, TR, EVE, WoW etc just don't scratch the itch for long enough yet there isn't anything else out there. What i am looking for is something that made me feel like WoW did on release month or EQ2 when i first tried that but there just isn't anything that really manages it atm.

I am actually using it as a chance to play some single player games. Got Dead Space, Fallout 3, Football Manager 09, GTA IV and POP.

I can't get LOTRO to work anymore getting this error, anyone got any ideas? Offical forums seem quiet.

851  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: LOTRO or Warhammer on: December 01, 2008, 08:22:41 PM
Well i stopped playing Warhammer, i subbed for 1 month then quit, whatever it is i'm looking for in an mmo wasn't there.

Anyways i got Lotro a while back and managed to screw up my subscription and pay for 6 months twice, they offered me a refund but i never got round to sorting it out. The add on came out and i picked up knowing i had a subscription for it. Anways i have a 16 champion and a 24 Hunter and i am enjoying it a lot, oinly thing is i'm also playing Wotlk as well so really not getting far in either.

I have to admit to being a bit shallow when it comes ot MMO's, i love quests, i also love new gear, whether it's a new sword or whatever, those things keep me happy and playing.

All in all there isn't much in it between any of the mmo's, it's a matter of what it iches and WoW does it mainly for me, EQ2 did for a long time but i tried it again recently and there was nothing there, LOTRO also works and Warhammer didn't.

I have 2 Buddy Keys for LOTRO for the EURO version if anyone wants to try it, i assume you can download the client online?

Yeah the takeover was challenged but cleared. Apparently there is plenty of different shops to buy games in the UK. Shame the only 2 specialist Gaming stores in the UK are now owned by the same company.
853  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New Last Remnant details and screens on: November 29, 2008, 07:32:36 PM
There are 2 computer game shops in the town where i live.

You have The Game and Gamestation. NOw both are now owned by the same company. Recently i have noticed they have been doing a few little tricks. LAst weeks deal of the week was Fable at 29.99 and was only available at The Game and out of stock at Gamestation.

This week i went in The Game to see about Last Remanant and they had none on sale anywhere, immediately i thought bet it's on offer in Gamestation, popped down there and there it was 24.99 and was that price today when i popped in again.

Gamestation also had Viva Pinata Trouble in Paradise and Ninja Gaiden for 30 for both so picked them up too, yet Trouble in Paradise was 30 on it's own in Game.

Only noticable thing is overall there is less on offer it used ot be both had offes running now it's normally only 1 or the other or just 1 or 2 games each on offer. Gamestation does seem noticably cheaper on used games. Also Fable 2 is 19.99 online at Gamestation which is another good price.
854  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New Last Remnant details and screens on: November 29, 2008, 01:44:56 PM
I picked this up cheap a few days ago. Surprised it was reduced so quickly as it's only been out 10 days. Still 39.99 down to 24.99 isn't a bad deal for  game i almost got at full price.

Installing it makes a big difference to performance as well. Not had much chance to play it though as there is just so much good stuff to play i find myself playing too many games for a short space rather than just 1 at a time.

856  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Wireless Router Help on: November 26, 2008, 07:29:37 PM
Hi,

I am having a problem with a wireless router install.

I setup a D-Link wireless router for my mother in law's laptop. I set it up, connect to it no problem, it find's the network and connects to the internet and works fine for about 2 weeks. Then the connection disappears and it can't find it and says the network is not there.

I go through the process and set it up again and voila it's there.

Today she rang and said it won't connect again, this will be the 4th time.

So is the router broke, not likely, her son can still connect to it with his laptop no problem. He is on XPa nd she on Vista so is it a Vista issue or is her laptop broken?

Would appreciate any advice or thoughts.

I was a bit confused about the go live date on this. I saw it for sale yesterday in a Gamestation (UK) and almost bought it. Checked the relase date and saw it wasn't till Tuesday so ordered it onlione cheaper.

Still unusal for it to be for sale already, nowhere did it say the serrvers woudln't be live yet.
858  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GHWT or Rock Band 2 on: November 10, 2008, 10:11:30 PM
Well RB2 isn't out here yet (UK), i got GHWT and am using the GH2 guitar with it.

Personally i'm really enjoying many of the songs in GHWT and it's way way better than GH3.

Will i be able to use the RB2 drums with it though? If so i will probably go that route.
859  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer - Euro stuff (Euro guild as well) on: October 27, 2008, 08:40:34 PM
I'm away now till Sunday but i just haven't played it at all this last week and  while i love the game i haven't missed playing it at all. ALso there is just far too many new and good games out or coming out. Does my hea din all these games at the same time and then 6 months with bugger all to play.
860  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer - Euro stuff (Euro guild as well) on: October 23, 2008, 06:21:18 PM
Yeah i've had no play time this week so far do to be knackered and working. Next week i am away from Tuesday - Saturday on holiday so won't be playing at all.

Finding a busier guild sounds like a good idea to me
861  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [MMO's] How much do you play? on: October 21, 2008, 09:05:04 PM
Problem i have is getting up at 6am each day for work. Find myself falling asleep after 10pm atm. Also having a son who thinks 6 hours sleep a night is far too much means i feel permanently knackered.

I have also found i lack the inclination to actually play when tired
862  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [MMO's] How much do you play? on: October 21, 2008, 05:56:17 PM
MOn - Thurs 90mins + depending on how tired. Weekends not a lot, more time for family stuff.
863  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: X3: The Terran Conflict on: October 20, 2008, 06:19:59 PM
Well i've done the tutorial which takes about 10 mins then it's like right what now. Still wish there were a few early pointers for new players like, visit here for trade, visit here for warfare even if its only 34 or 5 quests for each to get you set.


I like the mouse controls, much improved, love the graphics as well. I'm just going to wandre in space and see what i can pick up to start with. 1 problem i have is it feels like you need a few hours interrupted to really get into it an di find that hard to find rather than the odd hour here and there, but thats more my fault than the game.
864  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Which MMO is most casual-friendly? on: October 20, 2008, 06:15:44 PM
I did raiding at lvl 70 to emerald halls and found it great fun. There was and is plenty of small 1 hour instances as well as big raids. There is always plenty of loot and drops as well.

I have a 70 fury and had no issue soloing all the way from 1-70, the guild i was in was a wow/eq2 guild and all the eq2 players were at level cap so most of it was solo or pugs and it was fun.

The only reason i nevergot to 80 was my son was born and i pretty much stopped playing and when i went back to playing never really tried eq2 but will probably be tempted with the new expansion due in November.
865  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Which MMO is most casual-friendly? on: October 19, 2008, 12:20:02 PM
Warhammer is defintely best for grouping, i've never had as many invites to groups as i ge tin War, add to this open groups and even if you need a group you can generally get one.

8 for lotro is a bargain, i mean 1 month of play at that price is a bargain.
866  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Which MMO is most casual-friendly? on: October 18, 2008, 09:42:32 PM
Yep plenty of action on the EU servers if thats where you are playing. Also they just upped the xp rate so plenty of low levels playing new toons.

ALso get the eq2 map updater if you try it. Works a bit like the quest helper in wow or warhammer showiong you p[alces of interest and quest locations making it a lot quicker.
867  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Which MMO is most casual-friendly? on: October 18, 2008, 02:51:44 PM
No trial for War atm i'm afraid.

Personally i didn't enjoy LOTRO at all. EQ2 and WoW are the only 2 that have managed to hold my attention for any lengthy of time with EQ2 being my personal favourite.
868  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: X3: The Terran Conflict on: October 18, 2008, 12:14:54 PM
Well i have just picked this up this morning even though i don't have enough time to play Warhammer let alone a space sim.

Anyways according to the forums it is a lot easier to afford a few new ships earlier on in the game and get a few nice bits. Most are saying this is the game that X3 should have been.

I'll let you know when i have played a bit. 17.99 from play.com is not a bad price.
869  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer - Euro stuff (Euro guild as well) on: October 18, 2008, 12:07:54 PM
I'm happy to join a RP guild, just don't want one that lives and breathes role play. Middle ground or less suits me fine.

The other thing for me is is just don't do alts, have enough time doing 1 toon let alone 2 or 3. If i play an alt then i end up playing that instead of my main. I do have a DoK on another server as well but my IB is the one i want to take through to end game.
870  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer - Euro stuff (Euro guild as well) on: October 18, 2008, 06:58:49 AM
Yeah my usual play time atm is between 20.00 and 22.00. Too knackered to play any later.
871  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer - Euro stuff (Euro guild as well) on: October 17, 2008, 08:14:43 PM
OK i have played all week, up to level 17 and only seen someone on the guild once.

the game really works when you have a good guild with lots of activity, we really need to decide if we are going to join a bigger guild or have enough activity to have the guild. My feeling is we don't and won't have enough.

Any thoughts?
872  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [warhammer] more experience! on: October 13, 2008, 06:15:01 PM
Yep i played 3 or 4 scenarios last night with a few guild members and we had no healers, we got nowhere near winning, total waste of time really.

877  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Starcraft 2: The Milking? on: October 11, 2008, 08:18:34 AM
I do love the people that say it's going to cost this or that when no price has been announced.

On the other hand delays have never been an issue in the past but it doesn't mean it's not an issue now.

The one thing that gets me is the amount of stuff people make up or say as if it's fact, until it's out or we get a cost it's hard to actually judge what it means. It could be 3 full  games charged at full price or they could be cheaper, it could be 3 small games at rip off price or even a cheap price. i mean who the hell knows yet.

All i can do atm is judge blizzard on what they have given / done in the past, and so far that has been fine.
