1761  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Eve Online on: December 11, 2006, 06:26:05 PM
Once you get out into 0.0 space the game pretty much changes. That is, what I think anyway, where the true fun begins. Because you aren't bound by anything anymore, you really do create what you want out there. I mean the SA, CA war down in the south lasted for over a year. Fighting over a region. The difference between EVE and other games is that you have a reason to fight. You are acually fighting over something instead of just grinding out honor points to get that omg supar knife. Instead you are fighting over territory and resources and the right to be out there. And you can lose stuff, you can lose a lot. What other MMO has that?

Istanbul was Constantinople
Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople
Been a long time gone, Constantinople
Now it's Turkish delight on a moonlit night

Every gal in Constantinople
Lives in Istanbul, not Constantinople
So if you've a date in Constantinople
She'll be waiting in Istanbul

Even old New York was once New Amsterdam
Why they changed it I can't say
People just liked it better that way

So take me back to Constantinople
No, you can't go back to Constantinople
Been a long time gone, Constantinople
Why did Constantinople get the works
That's nobody's business but the Turks

I think it would work pretty well with the nunchuck also and a helluva lot more sensitive.
1764  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Eve Online on: December 05, 2006, 05:11:05 PM
The contract system is the new escrow. I'd say it is now very similar to the AH in WoW. You can search for specific things, you can now do auctions on items. You can specify which region you want to search in. Also take out loans and a lot of other things that escrow could never do. Only issues is that you can't really sort after you searched and that if you search in another region you can't buy that until you get to that region.

The gang system got an overhaul also, the commanders can call out and tag targets. Tagging has been in the game for a bit acually.

It was a little laggy on Sunday, but either than that it wasn't to bad. And yeah the EVE website does have a lot of cool stuff about the game. The stories and all that dealing with the game.

Well one thing I'll say against him (sorta) is he doesn't have comments enabled on his blog.  Which is fine because it's a blog and not a forum.  But if his remarks do tend to get a bit skewed it might be nice to see some dialog between him and someone who sees things differently.

Well the thing with that is that there are a lot of spam bots for blogspot, so more often than not you get more spam than you do acual conversation.

1769  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Eve Online on: November 29, 2006, 06:05:01 PM
Well, if you remember. I was talking about instajumps in how they help so much. Well a big issue was that since bookmarks are stored on there servers and instajumps were used so much everyone had a ton of them, so they just put in a warp within 0km option. Basically you have instajumps everywhere. So instead of moving that stupid 15km everytime you warp you can just warp right to the gate and jump. Sadly the autopilot still does 15km but it's still a lot better than it was berfore you just need to do it manually.

It makes doing those rediculous 27 jump trips so much easier, instead of sitting there for 2 hours you can do it in 30 minutes, in a battleship.

I'm still bouncing around, my tales of wo and all that down in 0.0. Now I'm back up in empire and Gen and I started a new corp. So if anyone that wants to start out and mess around with eve, always will to take on new people and answer questions and help out how we can smile. All the vet guys on here know how we work so. SkyLander ingame you can just send me a mail or I'll acually check this thread heh.

Revelations adds a bunch of stuff, some new battlehips and battlecruisers, the idea of Rigs which are basically implants for ships. Ditched the escrow system for this new contract system. I haven't really messed around with it that much. You can also reverse enigneer things in the hopes of getting a blueprint out of it so it helps with research a bit. Revamps the gang system turning it more into a true fleet with seperate wing commander and squads, when you get into major fleet combat. And a bunch of other little tweaks and so forth. Can finally just warp to 0 so travel time is greatly reduced and you don't have to worry about instajumps and bookmarks really anymore.  All I got off of the top of my after playing a few hours today.

So like I said I've been around eve for over 3 years now so shoot me a mail or whatever if you have any questions.

1774  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: TV advice on: November 12, 2006, 01:27:11 AM
Don't buy off brand TVs. Main brands are always better. You are looking for HDMI ports and compenent inputs specifically and usually the off brand ones have signicantly less than regular TVs do. Safe bet is to just stick with Samsung at the moment they are still considered the best in TVs from what I understand.

Laptop should be fine, just make sure the resolution for the output matches the reslolution of the TV. Supported resolutions are usually in the manual.

May I ask what city/state you live in?

I think around 20 states now have "Old West" style laws where you can kill anyone in your home OR outside of your home if you feel in the least bit threatened. These laws tend to remove criminal AND civil liability where action occurs.  Michigan enacted one on September 26th that authorizes lethal force for anyone, even if they aren't on your property any longer..  Here is the current status of Lethal Force Laws;



In fact, this might be pretty odd, but I actively PLAN for the situation in my mind, and reherse it, and have preparations throughout the house for such an event. The wife and kids, well they know what button to push (part of the nice little renovation and gutting of the house last year included an integrated security/video system with hidden panic buttons in every room), and where the panic room is, so thats what is important for them.  Me, well, I go for the weaponry.  icon_wink

My advice, take this incident, learn from it, and plan for the next one.  Even if it doesn't happen, it will be great assurances on your mind when you can't be home with the wife/kids.  It is really a tragic thing to have your private space invaded, nothing makes anyone feel more vulnerable or angry..  So I know EXACTLY what you are feeling..

About the preparation thing, my dad used to know a guy that he shot with. When his house was being built he had metal plates installed in key areas of the home and a map of where they were so in the event of a robbery or something else he knew which walls to hide behind knowing the other person can't shoot through them.

That is planning.

I don't know whether I am relieved or saddened to learn WBS isn't actually a 400 pound black woman.  On the internet that nym is even money.

Reminds me that I need to clean it since I last shot it....

Oh this was the original home defense gun, which has now been replaced by my Dads glock .40 which he loves. It has a home defense load which has the 1st shot as BBs then a soft shot then hollow point and FMJ. Make sure the 1st shot is the BBs so you know that if the gun gets taken from you the 1st shot won't kill you, just hurt like hell.

I mentioned at both OO and BC that this is a really good album and only got a couple responses agreeing. Now if they had some big titted women in the band or on the cover I probably could have gotten more people interested but alas it has neither.

To me it's like they made every song a tribute to an influence. One song channels Black Sabbath, another Led Zepplin, another the Beatles, there's even a little Jethro Tull flute in a song, Love Train has a neat little Rolling Stones sounding opening.

This is by far my favorite album of the last 5 years.


Kratz said "nice" and that was all that needed to be said.
