1161  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic BETA SIGNUP on: October 01, 2009, 03:31:19 AM
Woot, finally made it! Helps if you enable Java when it gets to the scanning part.

Hmm, well, so I thought. I had to redo the process with the trick listed above, using a different email address. Hope this doesn't invalidate me because it would look like I have two accounts, but it's part of their shoddy system for not sending invites in the first place.

Edit Today: Btw, I did finally get the activation email for the first account. Seems like it's much slower if you don't use the trick, so keep that in mind if you give all the info in one go. Might seem like you're not getting anything, but it's just delayed.

I like Kelsey Grammer, so I tried watching his new show, Hank, but I couldn't bear the 1 minute I watched and turned it off when an annoying kid came onto the scene. I watched the show after it called The Middle and loved it. I think it's a solid show with solid writing, and could be a hit.

Or Gone With the Wind.

Nooo, they better not dare. There are some movies that are such a staple of an era that they shouldn't be redone, that remaking them removes the context they were originally made in. This, I feel, is one of them. It would be like remaking Dr Strangelove without the context of the Cold War.

The only ones I've ever felt were worth reading were the Thrawn trilogy by Timothy Zahn. I've never been beyond that.

I dont do X-mas much but what I do do it after Thanksgiving. I refuse to buy anything at stores that start X-mas before Thanksgiving.
By Tgiving the season is effectively over from a merchandising perspective -- it is too late to test what will and what won't sell, and load up on the winners. I have to make my bets a week or two after Halloween.

See, that's the thing. In Canada, our Thanksgiving is in October, so the reason for that sounds even more ridiculous.

And believe it or not, I've seen the movie channels here show Christmas movies in June, and the kicker was that we were having a pretty cold June, to the point that there were reports of snowfall. Felt like a kick in the nuts.

It's not your fault. The timeline they have on their site is very confusing to read. Not very clear what's what.

Thanks, Blackhawk.  Not sure what the usual process is for beta testing, but it would of been nice to have been notified by email by them on it being lifted.

















The story here is that at the end of the event, we coordinated a meeting between both sides. Elysians came to Asmodae through a rift, so we had to all be at least a certain level for it to work. As players know, there's no way for each side to talk to each other, though we devised a system where we would use our market stalls and changed the description each time we had something new to say.

Since there's no more NDA, here are some of my pictures from the Family & Friends/Alpha event from awhile back.

Edit: Or not. Are we still under NDA? Won't post them until I'm sure.

i'd love to see how Michael Bay works aircraft carriers and fighter jets into PotC.  you know he couldn't make any movie without the military being involved...

Canons are all he needs for explosions in this universe. The Military? Yeah, get the British navy from the first movie involved somehow. Maybe the British military should hire him to lead a crusade against Captain Kidd who was one of the most successful pirates of the time.

Could it maybe be copy protection? The packer used during mastering? Some copy protection like older versions of Starforce are considered rootkits and cause problems when installed, and some Anti-virus programs dislike packers that they can't penetrate.  Also, are you absolutely sure that it's a legit copy and not some conterfeit copy?
1175  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [MUSIC] The Beatles on: September 10, 2009, 07:51:12 PM

Quote from: Scuzz on September 10, 2009, 06:09:18 PM

In the olden days of yore radio stations had more freedom to play music. Thus almost every song from a Beatles album would get some airplay. I can't think of any other band where this might be true.

Their later stuff truly was album rock, music that flowed from one song into the next.

True. And I think that, in terms of the Beatles, most people didn't think of them in a singles mentality, but rather the bigger picture, if that makes any sense, and that comes with people knowing what to expect out of the band.

I guess this means Prey 2 will be distributed by Bethesda, or more precisely, Zenimax. Or maybe it means Zenimax thinks that iD can do something with the Prey license.

Well, yeah, there's that, but this seemed more like a fault with the engine where the ships just bounced off, and in a preview?

Maybe it's a technicality, but the ship battles look a little off in the preview. Not once, but two times, it looks like a ship collides into another one.

I don't see how it can do that. Every search engine that ever started up in the early days of the net has had a simple homepage. They've only evolved to complexity while Google hasn't changed much since it started.

Yeah, looking forward to it, though I won't be reading it right away. I'll get it eventually. I haven't even read the last Harry Potter book yet.

I actually liked Angels & Demons better than The Da Vinci Code. Felt it had a better story.

Heh, I played this and it was called Voyage Century Online. Seems to be exactly the same. In fact, from a little research, Bounty Bay is the European version of Voyage Century.

Is it just me or the walking and running animations look clunky? Hopefully they'll look better later on, but they looked pretty rough.

they probably will.  the game is what. 6 months to a year away from release?

I'd bet money that it won't be out till 2011.

The combat reminded me of Champions Online in a way because of the pacing and animations.

One thing I was trying to imagine was during all that NPC dialog, would it seem as cool if there was a dancing bounty hunter standing behind the quest giver the whole time? This IS a MMOG after all.

Or better yet, have some other players standing around in the background who react to your presence. If that system is as dynamic as they say it is, that would be pretty cool.

What about Fire Upon the Deep by Vernor Vinge? That one always gets thrown about in these types of threads. Reading it now and it's pretty good.

For what it's worth, I didn't like Ender's Game either. Didn't like the theme of the book, ie kids fighting wars. It rubbed me the wrong way.

You all fail.

This is the holy grail:

You can also kill an opposing faction's NPCs while on the other side, which is fun. I think the amount of points you get for killing it depends on how important the NPC is. It's fun to know that NPCs aren't invulnerable.
