3466  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

That's too early for me, too. :P  I was thinking more along the lines of seven or eight EST.

Another Messiah - Dark Dreams, My Child

Think Opeth with an oboe.  Good, unique shit.
3470  Media / The Soundroom / Song of the Moment on: March 23, 2006, 07:46:04 PM
Running Wild - Conquistadores

The most awesomely ridiculous chorus that has ever existed, overdone even by '80s metal standards, eclipsing even that cheesy "shout it out" shit in Priest's "Ram It Down". :P
3471  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Port Forwarding and Related Bullshit on: March 23, 2006, 12:07:31 AM
Can someone link me to a decent online tutorial on how to forward ports?  Preferrably one relatively jargon-free and with lots of pretty pictures.

Thanks. :P
3472  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Oath in Felghana info on: March 23, 2006, 12:02:28 AM
It's not in English, but it was easy enough for me to figure out from my experience with Ys III.  You go to the same areas in the same order you did previously, so it was just a matter of finding the area with the right music. :P

I'm pretty sure I ordered mine from NCSX, but that was a long time ago so my memory might be off.  I haven't imported anything before then or since, so I don't know if that's the best place out there to do business.

So Dade and I duoed Morbent Fel tonight.  We are clearly awesome.

Too bad our priest lagged out on us, or he would have gotten to see it. :P

Methinks Face is a little bitter over not being involved in anything worthwhile since he last teamed up with B.A., Hannibal, and Murdock. :P
3475  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / World of Warcraft OH MY GOD CURRENT EVENTS THREAD on: March 19, 2006, 01:48:48 AM
Bah, I'm not leaving, so don't worry about that.  I haven't wasted 96+ hours of my life just to stop now. :P

Besides, where else am I gonna see gnomes slaughtering rats?  I played three months on Shadowsong and never saw that, but this is the second time in a couple of weeks I've seen that happen in the same fucking spot. :P
3476  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / World of Warcraft OH MY GOD CURRENT EVENTS THREAD on: March 18, 2006, 11:22:34 PM
:(

The only reason I hopped onto a PvP server in the first place is because I envisioned our little band sticking together and cutting a swath through everything we came across.  I didn't count on jackasses going around killing people 40 levels lower than they are, just for the sake of ruining someone's experience.  Unofurtunately, that's the only side I've seen of the PvP server system, and I don't much like it.

If you guys end up bailing on Shattered Hand, I'll probably follow suit.  I'm gonna poke my head into STV tonight and see just how bad it is before I say for sure.

...Did I just see Samuel L. Jackson whip someone with a snake?

This is clearly gonna surpass Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla as my favorite shitty film. :P

So sayeth the worst druid that has ever walked the earth, while he spastically ran around a room in the Stockades whilst in bear form.  It was one of the greatest things I've ever seen as far as pure stupidity goes. :P

Well, Dade's on the West Coast like you, so whatever time you consider to be the afternoon would probably be what he considers to be the afternoon.  Or close enough. :P

And I have that many alts because it's the only way I could keep from shooting up to level 35 and leaving the others behind. :P  And one's a mule holding my stockpile of bullets, so that doesn't count.

Aside from owning Raven Hill with Dade, things went pretty slowly today.  Now that I've figured out the key to making riches on Shattered Hand (hint:  it ends with i-Impact Mithril Slugs :P), I've got a bit of disposable income, so I figured I'd spring for a guild tabard.

...It's the ugliest motherfucking thing I've seen in quite some time. :P
