So Dade, Timmah, and myself just finished an aborted run through Gnomer.  Dade got this sweet Electrocutioner Leg and I got this also sweet Hydrocane.  Not much stat-wise, but I can see quite a few uses for the underwater breathing.

I think dang and golly used to be considered curse words and now when people say them, nobody bats an eye.  

Oh man, back when I was in first or second grade, this bitch of a teacher gave me an ass beating because I said "dang it" to her.  If she heard me now, she'd probably fall over dead.

I try to avoid cussing around my parents out of respect for them, but otherwise I'm dropping fuck at least once every other sentence.  Anyone who reads my posts should know that already, though. :P

I was on at the time of your posting, Dadey.  You just needed to be a bit patient. :P

Speaking of that quality I do not possess myself, after all the bullshit delays of today, the least Blizzard could have done was let me see a motherfucking snowflake or a raindrop. :P

If Breath of Fire hasn't impressed you two hours into it, nothing's gonna come along and change your mind fifteen hours later.  What you see initially is what you get at the end.

Since this isn't about gameplay or anything, I'll punt it to a more suitable place.

Cathedral - Voodoo Fire

You'll never hear a metal tune more tongue-in-cheek than this one. :P

...If they don't change that shit when it crosses the pond, they're crazy. :P  Of course, none of this is concrete fact, so it might be much ado about nothing.

It was bound to happen eventually.

So far in the career of my increasingly slutty-looking mage Alisandre, I've managed to be grouped up with at least one person I know.  But as fate would have it, no one was around tonight and I was bored to tears, so I hooked up with a group of strangers heading to Gnomeregan.

I knew things were gonna be bad when the group leader wanted to try and run it with four people.  Two of whom were below level 30.  After I delicately told him he might well be a fucking idiot, he found someone else...but it didn't matter.  This group was doomed.

Why?  Because as it turns out, I was the only person who had ever even stepped foot in Gnomer, the only one who had even a shred of experience doing the instance.  Keep in mind, my exposure to Gnomer was being ran through by a flock of 60s seven months ago to get that sexy spinning hat.

It would become evident as time wore on that I had made a grievous error in going there with these people.  While the other mage I was partnered with seemed to have their head on (relatively) straight, the rest of these people were morons.  I'm not sure I ever saw the hunter use his bow.  The priest was SWPing like a motherfucker, but he damn sure wasn't firing off the heals in a swift fashion.

But that warrior...oh my God.  In a group that wasn't exactly shy about hitting the enemies I sheeped (the other mage was busy burning all their mp using AE to hit one enemy), this idiot got the gold star.  There were this group of three troggs.  I hit one with a poly, and the other two came charging.  The war intercepts them both...then pulls them over to the sheeped enemy and deliberately gave it a smack.  I hoped he would die, but I think he drank a potion.  Pity.

That's when I bailed.  I've never abandoned a group before then (unless you count the mouthy hunter Dagg and I abandoned in Westfall :P), and I hope I don't have to again anytime soon.  No more partying without someone who I know is competent in their role.

At least I got Techbot, though. :P

Therion - The Invincible

Because it is awesome.

Okay folks, looking at the last few replies, it appears I need to come in and make one of the rules clear:

The "cranky and jaded old gamer" schtick is mine and mine only.

Remember that.

Congrats to Tim for spending six hours in MC and not putting his fist through his screen.

Congrats to John for telling me how his dad makes so much money in the game.

Congrats to me for taking that information and adapting it, thereby making 65 gold in just over a week.  Not much to you high-level fucks, but that ain't bad for someone in the low 30s. :P

I've been listening to the live version of X Japan's "Art of Life" recently.  Good stuff.  If you think I'm posting the lyrics to a song that long, you're fucking crazy. :P
3464  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Are Storylines Really So Important? on: March 25, 2006, 06:17:44 PM
The greatest plot and characters in existence don't mean a damn to me if the gameplay blows.  I'm with you; I don't see how a good storyline can be the main concern of the average RPG player.  I'd much rather play a fun game with a mediocre plot (say, Legend of Mana) than a boring game with an interesting premise (say, Xenosaga).

If only I had seen this thread before my copy of Oblivion arrived.  I could have ranted for ten paragraphs. :P

I'm currently rereading one of my favorite stories, "The War Hound and the World's Pain" by Michael Moorcock.  Like most of his stuff, it's short but sweet.

Next on the agenda is to refresh myself with Janny Wurts' Mistwraith books.  I just found on today that the most recent entry in the series came out a few months ago, and I've forgotten damn near every detail from the earlier books. :P
