2601  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Lvl 35 Elite Mob in Goldshire? on: December 16, 2004, 02:19:56 AM
thats a great video.
2602  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Anarchy Online now free on: December 16, 2004, 02:12:18 AM
Unless i missed something, AO has and will continue to be fairly succesful.  I'm sure they did lose a few subscriptions with EQ2 and WoW, but the game content and world is so different than either of these two i imagine it will still be around for some time.  I played on and off for over two years and it remains one of the best mmorpg's i've played.  I was casually playing up until a couple months back and it was stable and fun.  There are 220 levels and up until about 110, leveling is super easy and quick.  With the right groups you can literally get 3 or 4 levels a mission and level super fast.  Whoever said the grind was dreadful wasn't doing something right.
Now, since it's free i'd say go ahead it won't hurt to try it for free.  However, you would be missing out on a ton of the content and the ability to play with the regular population that play with the other expansions.  You can pick up the Shadowlands expansion (which includes AO) for nearly nothing and experince alot of what the game offers.  AO free for a year is good, but it's not represenative of the entire package.
2603  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HL2 help on: December 14, 2004, 05:41:58 PM
Sorry to start a new topic but i was hoping for a quick answer and noone had responded yet to my post in the sticky thread.

Ok i'm getting some serious motion sickness and i hope i'm getting close to the end of a level or i'm throwing in the towel. I'm in the buggy level and i just lifted the buggy up and i'm on the raod again.
#1. Am i relatively close to the end of the level?
#2. What is the key you have to use to make super long jumps while in the buggy?
#3. If i have a ways to go, what is the console cheat to skip a level? It's either that or i can't continue.

2606  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Need serious help after installing Windows!! on: December 04, 2004, 06:05:42 AM
good news!  windows just had the icons not displayed and once i found them i was able to find all my files again.  boy i was sweating that one out.  there were some things on there i couldn't have replaced.
2607  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Need serious help after installing Windows!! on: December 04, 2004, 04:59:50 AM
To make a long story short, a buddy of mine recommended to reinstall Windows XP because of a problem i was having with my computer.  Although i've never done any type of windows install, i took his advice and reinstalled.
What is bothering me now is that i can only see the recycle bin icon on the desktop and no other files.  I was certain i seen a message that said it would save all my settings and files, yet i see nothing.  Additionally my buddy said i wouldn't lose anything as well.
What the heck did i do or is there something else i need to do?

2611  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Wanderers invite you on: December 01, 2004, 07:59:12 PM
Wanderers hasha  been down for maintenance.  We do have a backup site that i can't remember off hand at the moment.  It's been down for a few days so i suspect it'll be back any day.
And as far as i know, you'll definitely need a credit card to play the free trial.  You do have to enter it at registering.

2614  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Looking for comparison - EQ2 and WOW on: November 30, 2004, 08:37:00 PM
This is the bottom line, there are those who like EQ2 and those who like WoW.  It does not mean one product is better than the other simply because you prefer the gameplay of one over the other.  I'm not referring to this post by any means, but all these threads and comments that declare WoW is better than EQ2 or EQ2 rules WoW is ridiculous and i personally would not follow the advice of someone posting such a message.  Having said that...........
I did not play either of the betas for either game to purposely not spoil any parts of the game for me, that's just my feelings.  After all the hype of WoW and so many people declaring it the second coming of gaming, i chose to go with WoW instead of EQ2.  I liked the potential for the casual gamer and ease at leveling rather quickly.  I also liked the idea that our guild at The Wanderers were going to hit it hard at release and i wanted in on it from the start.  However, after playing for just 3 days and up to lvl 11, i was bored out of my mine from constant soloing and quit.  I hated having to solo in a mmorpg and couldn't imagine doing it for the majority of my levels.  Ya i know grouping does get a bit more important at higher levels in order to complete quests, but the little grouping i had done at that moment was lifeless and not as rewarding compared to soloing for most people.  I also did not like the graphics.  The cartoon aproach is just not my style and i just couldn't get into the feel of the world because of it.  I also thought combat was boring for some reason.  You WoW fanbois don't flame me, i just did not personally like it.  For these reasons and a few others, i had to quit because it was boring me to death to solo and chat with my friends instead of grouping.  The fact is most or the majority of people solo and thats not what i was looking for.
Now, i decided to give EQ2 a shot because i heard it was more suited to the grouping player more so than solo'er.  When i immediately entered EQ2, i knew this was the game for me.  I love the graphics, the enormous amounts of character choices, the more mature player, and grouping being encouraged.  I personally think the combat in EQ2 is exciting and more strategic than WoW.  Surprisingly enough i have done more questing solo in EQ2 than i wanted to be, but thus far i haven't been annoyed or bored with it.  I also have been able to find pickup groups each night i've played rather easily.  The leveling is definitely slower than WoW, but until now it's not a burden.  I'm currently level 12 almost 13 and truely addicted to the gameplay, graphics, combat, community, etc.
This DOES not mean EQ2 rules and WoW suxxors.  These are just my personal likes and dislikes about each game and the impressions i had with each on a limited basis.  I have no idea whether EQ2 will hold my attention in the long haul once the grind sets in.  However i do know i traded away my WoW account and will never play it again.  For the many people who say EQ2 is boring and suxxors there are that many people who flame WoW.  I'm not flaming or pumpng either, just giving you my $.02
I  guess the bottom line would be if you have the $$ and extra time, try WoW yourself and make that judgment.  I personally dont think you can decide whats good for you unless you try it first hand.  It surely did not work for me.

Just wanted to edit and add that i can't figure out for the life of me why so many people are having problems with EQ performance.  I have a relatively modest system and at generally high settings i get no lag or stuttering what so ever.  If i hadn't read on different forums all the problems, i wouln't know any existed.

2616  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Tabasco hot sauce on: November 29, 2004, 08:43:46 PM
ya i'm one of those folks who can eat anything regardless of how hot it is.  i usually use Blairs Death sauce when i want to set my dumper on fire and Tabasco Habanero or Chipotle for flavoring.  Tabasco is the best all around hot sauce for seasoning, bar none

thanks for all the responses.  Noah love Thomas but we only catch it like once a month on PBS here.  we will definitely check out Best Buy and Sams.  i appreciate the offer warning on your videos but i was really looking for Thomas.
2618  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Anyone have any toddler videos for trade or sell? on: November 29, 2004, 10:37:11 AM
Kind of an odd request but my almost 2 year old is absolutely head over hills in love with Thomas the Tank Engine and the Wiggles.  We get the Wiggles of course because of Disney so it's not as important as Thomas who we rarely see.
I'd love to get some Thomas videos if possible.  Anyone got any your kids have outgrown?

2622  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Anyone have any interest in WoW and start guide? on: November 27, 2004, 10:27:35 AM
Having been underwhelmed with WoW personally, i picked up EQ 2 and thus far i'm loving how things are going.  
So in saying that, would anyone be interested in buying WoW standard edition with the 432 page brady strat guide from me?  With Blizzard extending the 30-day trial a couple days, you could nearly have the entire trial since i just activated it this past Tuesday.
If so, let me know and i'll make a decision by Sunday whether i'm still feeling like i am about it and i can ship it out Monday.  Again, it would be basically the entire trial and the new brady strat guide.

Edit ........... this would be for sale only, no trades.

2632  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / 20% off WoW strat guide at ebgames.com on: November 20, 2004, 03:35:15 PM
I realize all mmorpg guides are outdated a bit at release, but if you are looking for nice colored maps and some crafting info., ebgames.com has 20% on all startegy guides.  Not sure if this is just for today or not, so don't wait.  The collectors edition would be just $23.99.
The cool thing about the collectors edition guide is that when brady updates the guide periodically, you can get the updates from their site.  I understand all of the info. can be found from somewhere off the net, but if you are like me, i'd like to have it all neatly assembled in one book and not have to spend the time wasting ink on copying it myself.
Enter code HB20.
