No thanks, looks like Google Chrome. And Google Chrome is my main browser, so I'll just stick with Chrome. Besides, I'm a huge Google fan.

If I'm not enjoying the game from the beginning then why do I need to torture myself to get to "end cap" to see the "real" game? WTF? Why can't the WHOLE GAME BE THE REAL GAME

 

Thats why I hate themepark MMOs so much, its always the "end" game that is the "best". Sandbox style MMOs (UO, Pre-ruined SWG, Asheron's Call, Saga of Ryzom, Vanguard and the few other sandbox MMOs) hooked me right from the beginning.

 

So yes, you can judge a game from level 1-10 because if a game doesn't start to level 60 or 80 or whatever, then it isn't worth playing. A sandbox game hooks you from the start.

If in my signature it had

 

"I'm going to GRAPE you in the mouth!"

 

And in my quote thingy it had

 

"GET YOUR MIND OUT OF THE GUTTER"

 

its just grapes anyway, but I got a warning for it on another gaming site which I thought was lame. I'm the grapist, I like to eat grapes. They are my favorite fruit. I even dressed up as a giant cluster of grapes last year for halloween.

 

Its all based on that youtube video of an advertisement for a grape drink. But the other gaming site (which I wont name) said it was inappropriate lol... I guess they dont like grapes at that gaming site or something. Because a lot of people eat grapes all over the world. The other gaming site wanted to ban me for the word "grape" rofl

 

this is the video if you are still living in 1980 (j/k sorta ;P) and haven't seen it, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fqq051BU2MY

well I prefer these races (some may not be in a MMO)...not in any particular order (but they also all depend on the class as well if I like them or not)

 

1. Goblins (awesome for a sorta evil or evil class)

2. Orcs (awesome for a warrior-like class)

3. Undead (only MMORPG and RPG that lets you play as Undead is WoW that I know of, but they are awesome)

4. Tauren (WoW specific race, and mostly cause I love the native american culture)

5. Dwarves (everyone likes Dwarves :D)

6. Trolls (only WoW trolls, they look awesome)

7. Dragons (only Istaria: Chronicles of the Gifted lets you play as dragons, but this would be my top favorite race to play if it was in more MMOs)

8. Lizard-like race or other reptilian race (they look awesome)

9. Beast-like race (Minotaur etc. I know Shadowbane has/had beast-like races, but not sure if any other MMO does)

 

and hmm, thats about it for my list. Notice the distinct lack of elves and humans ;P and I don't tend to like short races, except for dwarves and goblins. I kinda like the savage/barbaric races more than the civilized ones.

I bought it, I buy everything Apple. Cause apple does no wrong. If you don't like anything Apple, then I don't like you.

 

So far its great, I don't plan to use it, but I did put it up on display in my Apple room. Makes a nice decoration. I think it might be a good door stopper too. It has a lot of different uses that aren't build into the machine, which is whats so great about Apple products.

Happy April Fools the second! The day after april fools where you do opposite of pranking

I saw this video a while back. I thought that was really cool :D A lot of what Improv does is pretty neat

Griefers, Trolls and Gankers are like politicians. Carebears are like citizens.

looks like 3.3.5 is ruby sanctum (I guess a raid), and 3.3.9 is when Trolls and Gnomes get their own home according to MMOchampion. Was reported to be sooner on MMOchampion a week or two back (it seemed pretty finished), but looks like its not gonna be for a little while yet.

Awesome :D No sarcasm there either. I play games for FUN and ENTERTAINMENT...not to be stressed out while playing them and having to stay on 24 hours to get anything accomplished. Games, as well as tv shows and movies are just that...entertainment, not meant to replace your life, and there to have fun watching or playing.

 

Anyway, when were MMOs ever HARD? you want to play something that is "hard", then play a FPS game or something, or a rts/strategy game that takes skill. MMOs are dead easy, from Asheron's Call, to Ultima Online, to SWG to all the other ones I've tried...MMOs are pretty much easiest in the gaming genre. Sure, I guess there are PvE raids, but once you find the strategy to win...its easy. The only hard thing about MMOs is PvP, because another player can change his strategy, where as a dumb AI does the same stupid thing all the time. So, if you are talking gear being easier to get for PvE...it was always very easy in WoW. I raided in EQ, that was pretty easy as well. I didnt even use vent or voice programs in EQ raids, which were harder (but still easy) than the WoW ones. If you are talking about easier to get gear for PvP, then its really still about the same challenge against another player.

Found this posted over on Massively, its a Steampunk browser game. I just made my character not too long ago. Dunno anything about it really, but looks to be a sidescroller, but its sorta like Runescape too and has crafting and stuff. Its actually quite fun from what I've played. One of the classes gets a jetpack to fly around in, which is quite fun.

 

Here is the link for those curious, you may need an account on Kongregate, if you don't have one already. I didn't test it without one

 

http://www.kongregate.com/games/FliplineStudios/remnants-of-skystone

 guess none have you of heard...but Gnomes getting their own city (or at least part of it, not sure if its the whole city or not) and Trolls getting Echo Isles is supposedly coming out tomorrow (Tuesday) according to MMOChampion. Blizzard already stated that them getting their own cities is going to happen before Cataclysm. Only question is, if its going to be tomorrow (if the patch happens), or if the patch gets pushed back for some reason. In any case, its definitely happening before Cataclysm release.

 

Being a Troll (my favorite race in game), I'm really looking forward to having Echo Isles as a home :D

 I imagine when its released, this movie will be missing scenes that will later be updated in later DvDs. Be filled with bugs, be a huge letdown (will be popular at first, but when word gets out and people see it, it will bomb), probably won't run on most TVs for another few years. They will also probably get a new director to fix their movie. After the bugs and people get better TVs, then it will start doing better. Though it then takes a different path from something that could be great to watch people killing each other, to just killing monsters and going on raids instead of fighting person vs person.

Well this is what people are looking for in no paticular order

PVP or non pvp the majority take the non pvp route.

PvE, Oblivion (Or Morrowind) does a way better job than MMOs do for PvE. MMOs have of course better PvP, since Elder Scrolls are singleplayer

housing system

Oblivion has this, so does Fallout 3...both have awesome house systems, though not as good as UO or pre-ruined SWG...they are better than most MMOs

good story line


MMOs...good...story line? ROFL. MMOs have horrible story lines. Oblivion and Morrowind have WAY better storylines. And Mass Effect 1/2, Dragonage Origins...those three have WAY better story lines than any MMO.

Good questing system

 

HAHAHAHAHA...ROFL...good one. So much wrong with that statement its hilarious. Complete a quest in a MMO? Nothing changes, and 1000 people before you, and 1000 people after you will be doing the same quest. Or go kill 100 boar to collect 50 boar meat? Lame. Oblivion, Mass Effect, Morrowind, Fallout 3 have WAY better quest systems. In fact, most singleplayer games do. MMOs are the worst for quests ever

Raids


Boring. Beating a boss in Oblivion was way more satisfying. Though this one is just my opinion

crafting

Well, themepark MMOs have sucky crafting systems (I'm looking at you LOTRO and WoW)...I do give pre-ruined SWG, UO and Ryzom has having awesome crafting systems though. Better than singleplayer games. But if you are comparing MMOs like WoW and LOTRO and other WoW clones, then I found Oblivion harvesting/crafting to be a lot better.

im sure there are more but thats all i can think of atm.

MMOs are a joke compared to singleplayer games like Oblivion, Morrowind, Mass Effect and countless others. The only reason to play a MMO is to interact with people...but everything a MMO does, a singleplayer game does way better, except for social interactions obviously.

 

Oh and I'm not comparing vanilla Oblivion by the way, I haven't played vanilla Oblivion for years, mine is HEAVILY modded with player made mods (PC version).

 

Only reason I'm still subbed to WoW is because I found an awesome guild with great people, that I can't do in a singleplayer game.

did you even read what his question was? he was not comapring single players to mmo's... he asked for selling points.
 

yeah I read his question. And almost everything this guy said that were "selling" points, singleplayer games do WAY better.

 

The only things MMO do good is having a massive world and interacting with people. Thats the ONLY selling point MMO have over singleplayer games. MMOs don't even do the persistent changing world as good as singleplayer games, because the world almost never changes.

 

I do give credit to WoW, though. In Cataclysm...there will be changes to the area after you finish quests, and it will be a dynamic changing world sorta like singleplayer games have. Thats a MAJOR selling point to WoW, once thats released.

Anyone getting Just Cause 2 when its released next Tuesday?

This is in-game footage of it (newly released trailer)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzFhw6D6Q8E&feature=player_embedded#

 

there is a demo up on it on Steam as well.

 

For those who don't know about it...its a sandbox FPS game pretty much. From what I played of the demo, you can fly planes and helicopters...go skydiving, parachuting, cliff climbing.destroying stuff obviously...go all need for speed, hijack a car (or motorcycle, or jeep, truck, taxi, tank) and escape from the cops, or run people over...or drive into stuff and destroying it...or drive around exploring (the demo limits you to a "small" area of the island, but its still damn huge) and a bunch of other stuff you can do...sadly, demo is only 30 minute play sessions, then it starts you back at the beginning. Still tons to do though.

 

Storyline? No idea...didn't hear about it till I saw a trailer for it on Youtube (not the trailer I linked, but an older one). All I know from the demo, you are... I think... a mercenary and you are fighting this rebel army? to free people on this island from oppression? Dunno, I'm not reading into it (don't want to spoil anything) until I actually get the game. 

 

I'm getting it for PC by the way....but there will be PS3/Xbox360 releases too I believe.

 

So, anyone else getting this? Most fun I've had in a demo ever (seriously)...looking forward to getting a release copy :)

 

 Well, the end of society scenario for me isn't the typical nuclear war or alien invasion or anything like that

 

Have you seen Rosie O'Donnell? If she ever fell out of bed or fell some other way, it would be like a meteor hitting the earth

I originally had a one hand sword+shield guy. But this past hour I made a new char with creature enchantment, two hand weapon, life magic, melee defense and I at level 5 trained arcane lore (noticed a lot of items require it)

No idea about templates or anything...I just chose what looked fun/useful :) 

As for weapon style...I definitely LOVE two hand weapons A LOT more than the one handed ones. Tons of fun :D

 

And I did notice a few people during my time online on Frostfell that I assume were new/returnees. Cause I saw them asking if FF was a popular server or not, and a couple said they had returned after being gone x amount of months/years.

 

Nice to see people still come back to AC after all this time :)

 I haven't played Asheron's Call since 2001. Well, minus creating a trial account a year or two ago...that I never played cause real life stuff came out. I started AC when I was I think 11 years old, I was really young...might have been 10 at the time. I was really young lol

 

I started in AC in 1999, was my first MMO ever. Since then, I've played (only counting MMOs I played longer than 6 months)... AC2, DAOC, SWG, WoW, Auto Assault and those are off top of my head.

 

Well, I recently tried Turbine's Lord of the Rings Online. And thats when it hit me...I hate quest based MMOs. I got a quest to collect red lillies for a hobbit, I then returned to hobbit, who then sent me to another NPC cause the flowers were for a bribe, who then sent me to the original NPC...who then sent me somewhere else, back to the bribed NPC, to another NPC, some fight against bandits happened, and finally back to the quest giver. After that lame quest, I logged off and vowed to never play a quest based MMO again.

 

There is just not really any good sandbox MMOs out. SWG was the last good one. I used to love that. There is Ryzom, but I could never get into that. Cant get into EVE either (tried 7 trials for it now), which is a popular one...then a few more, like Wurm and what not. Istaria is sorta a sandbox MMO, I actually kinda like that, but not enough to subscribe.

 

Well, I finally decided to come back to AC and see how it is. After hearing about new races being implemented later, that finally sent me to resub :) Its currently patching right now (patching is slow)...and I'm planning on making a melee character. I'm also going to see how magic is these days as well. Sadly, I won't know anyone in-game, and I've totally forgotten how to play...so it will be like playing the first day I played it back in 1999 ;P Seems a lot of new stuff has been implemented in AC since I played

For those wondering, I'm going to be on Frostfell...not big into PvP... PvP is too stressful for me, so I'll probably avoid darktide...at most, I'll just make an alt there that I play occasionally on. Haven't decided on a character name yet...and I'm gonna wait till I actually make my character to announce it, otherwise someone might take it...heh

Anyway, look forward to seeing you all in-game :)

 I LARPed in my pants the other day
