I'm not really interested in this show.  Racism is out there on both sides of the color lines.  Honestly, the best thing you can do if you have a friend of a different ethnic background is to talk to them candidly about racism.

Anyway, people are people.  I guess it just human nature to assign labels to everything

Actually, I think I am going to roll up a Khajit Assassin or Ranger tonight.  Been Tanking so much with my Dark Elf Spellsword that I am missing out on the cool Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood quest lines


Edit-Also I want to join the Blackwoods Company as they seem like my type of Mercenary unit

The hardware upgrade seems almost pointless really.  I've got faith that the controller and the system will end up with some really cool games.  But since it seems that the hardware is going to provide minimal power or visual feature upgrades, seems like you could knock a signficant amount off the price and development cost by just making a small add-on that sits underneath the GameCube, with internet stuff, the controller receiver, and whatever stuff they need for the virtual console.  Maybe a bit too 32X, though.


So can we expect a port of Obilivon on the Revolutions?  Cool  Tongue

I think I am a little over 28+ hours in and my lvl 15 Spellsword has partial Orcish armor and carries a Glass Longsword as main weapon and a Longsword with +20 Mana drain as a back up and I rarely meet Bandits/Maruaders with comparable gear.  Most still have a mix of steel and Iron with a little bit of Dwavern/Orcish and Glass Gear and that is fine.

I have no issue with the scaling system.

Nintendo lost me as a gamer back in the 16-bit era and lost me as a portable owner when I get my PSP.  

I'm not in the market they are looking for and that's fine.  Do I think they will crumble and close doors?  I doubt it.  The GBA-SP and DS will carry them for a long time to come.  Hell, they could probably bow out of the console wars and concentrate on hand-helds and still survive.  


Nintendo is looking to be the "Other" console, but I think if parents try to buy Lil Jimmy a Revolution for Christmas and all his friends are getting PS3s and 360s for Christmas most parents are going to have one pissed off kid.

edit-  To add my obiligatory Hate for all things DS and Nintendo.  Give me Graphics you whores  Tongue  Cool  :oops:  :lol:

Okay, I think I need to visit Umbra.  Where exactly is this place at near the Imperial City.   I've yet to do anything there yet, since I wanted to get access to the Arcane University and I just finished that


Matter of fact I have a question re: Bruma Mages guild

Spoiler for Hiden:
I stole the Mages Spell book as requested, but I really felt bad as she mentioned she was looking for it.  Is there a quest to help her get it back?

Please tell me some of you are starting to see how the backward skill system and level scaling nonsense are FUBAR and indicative of poor design.


Not me, LE, but I really like the system.  Could it be better?  Sure, but this is leaps and bounds better than MW.   Honestly, for me this is the first time a game has entralled me like this in a long time.
4889  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Impressions on: March 28, 2006, 08:06:30 PM
Actually, it not a bug.  If you have the other quest the she gives for the recommendation you will need to complete that first.  It it a pain? Yes, but a bug?  No


I ran into that as well last night.

Don't forget you can toggle the combat  to suit you.  I dialed it back just a few notches and I love it.  Provides enough of a challenge without me feeling like I cheated.

Night before last I made 2 potions that has 2 effects.  Something like Restore Fatigue and Detect Life.  I forgot which two reagents I used, but I believe one of them was a orange

New Season starts tomorrow

One of the best mis post EVAR!


I was a little uncomfortable seeing Tony so helpless.  Makes me wonder if he will make a full recovery.

I LOVED how Silvo seemed so uncomfortable as acting Boss.  


I am secretly wishing Vito is killed.  Once it comes out he has tendencies not fit for a man of respect I think his days are numbered

Well, I picked up the Cingular 8125 Pocket PC over the weekend and I detest that they didn't include a user manual.  I hate using a .PDF manual, but I am actually quite happy with my purchase.   Still trying to figure somethings out


Such as downloadable ring tones.  It says I can do it, but everytime I try to get one I never seem to get it.  Maybe I need to get a miniSD card?  Anyone know how to do this?
4895  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Impressions on: March 27, 2006, 01:23:02 PM
Leyawiin is where the swamps are located.  



Its also where I became
Spoiler for Hiden:
Knight Errant of the Knights of the White Stallion
 

It was pretty cool.  It hasn't opened up any new quest except for some bounty rewards.


Also, if you are Argonian or Khajit I would certainly check this area out if you fall out of favor  with the Fighter's Guild
4896  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Impressions on: March 27, 2006, 11:43:05 AM
Can someone list the Housing prices.

I know the one in Leyawiin in 7000gp.  I don't like the distance it is from everything.   I think as of know I want to live in Chorrol, but I don't want to spend tons of gold on a place that will just be a storage locker
4897  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Impressions on: March 26, 2006, 11:10:00 PM
I need help.  I was sent from Chorrol to Leyawiin to do a Figther's Guild Quest.  So I need to find 5 ectoplasm and I know they drop from ghost, but I'm not given a location to get the ectoplasm.  So can someone direct me to a dungeon with a bunch of Ghost?

Someone please spoil me on where to get the painter quest.  I already know about it from foolishly reading the clearly marked spoiler sectrion of GT's Oblivion preview.

I suck just as much as you, but being a Bark Elf when shit starts to hit the fan I call on my handy dandy ghost


Also, I vote best tank in game my damn Horse.  I know not what Thieves and Bandits have against my ride but damn if they don't try to take him out


Lastly,  Does anyone know where a woman by the  name of  Maeva(sp) is located.  I found a awesome blunt weapon that I took off some dead warlord that got in my way.  It has her name on it and now is a quest in my log


Still looking for Ninroot too

I think I just came upon a vampire town.  I was there during the day and the village folk where just down right nasty to me.   Told me to get out of town.  They got extremely upset when I visited the town churh,  I couldn't stay as I had other objectives.  The Town is now on my must investigate later list.


Simply awesome game

Quote from: "Destructor"
As far as the bow goes though...wow. I 'railing killed' somebody during the very first dungeon you see as you exit the sewers. Saw them standing near a ledge, and I snuck up close to them and fired an arrow from stealth. I insta-killed my target, and she flew up and tumbled across the ledge and crashed to the floor below.

And I love using arrows against skeletons. The arrows don't stick into your opponent. They just bounce off (as they should), yet you still do damage. Enough shots and the skeleton just explodes everywhere.

You should see what destruction magic does to baddies :twisted:

Illusion magic is actually fun and useful in Oblivion.



Yes, I need to raise my Destruction as my pitiful Flame Dart isn't cutting it anymore.  Matter of fact that will be the first thing I do when I play today.  Man I can't wait.
4909  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Oblivion-Tips , Advice and Help-Spoilerific on: March 22, 2006, 02:02:01 PM
Since we have a impression thread I thought I would make a dedicated help and tip thread.  Please be aware that spoilers might be contained within so you are warned.


Anyway, I need tips on  Speechcraft.  I totally borked myself with a vendor playing with it and is also a Heavy Armor Trainer.  So any tips on using Speechcraft would be appreciated

Has anyone been able to complete the Collect 12 Scales quest?  I've only found one of the damn finish in that lake.  


Last question, has anyone found a Blade Trainer?

Anyone gotten a 'perk' yet? Are they cool, or is it just a boring stat bonus?


No, perks for me yet.   I've joined the Fighter's Guild and the Mage's Guild and I am going to work on some of those quest.  

Random cool things I ran into during my 5+ hour marathon

I came upon a ruined Fort and decided to explore.  Imagine my surprise when I heard another Adventure  also killing and exploring.  Competition!


Highwaymen,  Poor Khajit as I had to put him down


Also, I ran into a dungeon where I think I need to be a higher level.  During my quest for the Mage guild I came upon a dungeon to explore.  I was able to kill  most of the beasties, but I met  my match in

4913  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 360 questions on: March 21, 2006, 03:31:16 PM
1. Yes.  Also at the end of this month Verizon is sponsoring a Live! weekend, so you can play with us at the time if you choose

2.I guess it doesn't matter.  I have mine horizontal since I set it up with no problems.  Make sure the power brick and console have plenty of ventilation.  Sumabitch systems runs hot as hell


3.  No idea.  I would be interested in this too


4. YMMV, but the 360 displays DVDs in 480p so if you DVD player is better than I would stick with it.  I use my 360 as my primamry player in my gaming room and have no qualms with it.
4914  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Impressions on: March 21, 2006, 11:43:43 AM

With all the Oblivion talk this ALMOST fell by the the wayside.


Anyway, I don't know how I felt about this episode. It looks like with Tony down the Capoes/Captains are going to be fighting/squabbling for power.   So far Silvio is holding the line but several of them seem to be hungering for a bigger piece of the pie.


All in all a okay episode, but they are certainly building this season to be the last.


One final piece Tony Jr.  starting to show some promise. He might be a pleasant surprise for this season
