Conan definitely is looking pretty! I really hope there's substance, gameplay and UI modability to make this a great game!

All I know is that I watched the WoW Tundra commercial on my large screen and so wanted to begin playing WoW on it, tucked back on my recliner vs. hunched over a desk... If console gaming could give me that I'd be all over it.

If it gives me the same feeling that WiC does, I guess that'll mean I'm done with RTS's for good. When I play some of them now, I can't figure out what I found so fun about them all those years ago. Maybe I'm just getting old.

This is exactly how I feel. They always look good, and I know they're an improvement over the old school games, but I'm just not finding them that fun anymore... don't know what it is. I used to play AoE, AoM, C&C, WC2, TA:K, EE and lots more... but I can't get into any of them anymore... I found C&C3 fun, but I didn't even get around to playing it multiplayer.

I hope this kicks a few people in the tail to go get a checkup with some blood taken. I'm only 30, but I just found out my cholesterol and my liver function tests were far from being good... and I'm actually just moderately overweight (6'2" 220lbs) and don't smoke, can run 3 miles in 30 minutes, etc. If I didn't get this checkup and make some life changing moves, this might have been me in a few years.

Go get a checkup!!

15. Re: maybe i'm just cynical.. Jul 30, 2007, 09:41 bothersome
 
There was an article in Wired a while back regarding the #1 problem with democracy that I 100% agreed with.

The future can't vote.

If you ask me, you can't have capitalist greed with democracy. The greed and "norm" overtakes most peoples thoughts of the future.

News Comments > ET: QUAKE Wars to Include Ads
38. Re: No subject Jun 19, 2007, 23:08 bothersome
 
Damn it. I really, really wanted to play this game. Unfortunately, just like the Battlefield game, I will have to boycott. I just can't support this sort of blatant attempt to shove more ads in front of my face. Once again, if they paid me for it, that's one thing... or at least lowered the price of the game to accommodate, but I won't buy a game that displays ads and uses a tracking mechanism to report back.

And this really sucks because I really want this game!

13. Re: No subject Jun 19, 2007, 19:24 bothersome
 
I got a 360 as well about two months ago. I bought nine games total... all the best reviewed greats. I even downloaded the Halo 3 demo (really, really sucked... control issues, weapon feedback sucked, generic feeling weapons, bad graphics, bad gameplay, etc). I just couldn't get into it. I like guitar hero 2 and played crackdown and gears of war for about a couple of hours each and that's about it. The rest seemed kind of "kiddish." The controls just didn't do it and most nights I fell asleep with the controller in my hand on my recliner. I can honestly say I've never done that PC gaming.

Needless to say, I sold the system about two weeks ago. $700 for guitar hero just wasn't worth it for me. Still keeping my Wii though Mario Party 8 and Zelda still lure me to that one

I've actually been enjoying going around the shire and reading the stories. The emerging danger outside the shire seems like you're reading a book and as you complete quests it seems to get you closer to where the danger is and you hear more about it... to the point where there is real anticipation to arrive in a city and participate in the problems they're having.

That said, I still wish there was more feedback in relation to combat. Especially with buffs. I play a minstrel and can never tell what buffs are on at any one time as the buffs only last 30 seconds max (at my level at least).

I also like the deed system (wish you didn't have to visit a minstrel to add them as I can never find), but wish there were also talents.

The upgrading of the spells automatically is nice, but I wish there was a notification marker, like the one's for deeds accomplished/discovered, saying that you learned a new level of "fireball". Your spell will now do x dmg... Next lvl "x dmg." Make gaining levels more rewarding. Right now, I barely seem to notice that I ding.

I also think they've made a very poor judgment call to not allow for any modifications other than ui. This is part of what makes WoW so alluring... I'm the one playing, let me play it how I want and not how you want me to.

Lastly, and this may be seen as either of a negative or a positive, it doesn't have that just one more quest/turn pull of other games. I can happily play for an hour and say well, I've done enough and log. WoW, I always wanted to stay on. This may have more of an impact in end game where raids last hours, and I may be wishing I could just have logged at an earlier point.

Overall, I'm at lvl 14, still inside the shire and enjoying the game.

I dunno, maybe its because I didn't play the last games but I didn't like the Halo 3 demo. All the weapons felt generic, the gameplay didn't seem fluid, the graphics seemed meh, the vehicles difficult... maybe I've been too spoiled with CS:S, BF2 & UT for too many years to think much of this...

- Galactic Civilizations II: Dark Avatar = Played this one for quite a while. Great that it worked on my work PC Reminded me I was back in my A School playing Masters of Orion.
- Supreme Commander = Damn game won't run on my machine. And I've got a Opty 170 @ 2.7GHz dual core, 7800GTX, 2G RAM.. bastard.

- Jade Empire: Special Edition - Just looked at the reviews. Don't know how I missed this one (Oh yeah... WoW). May have to pick this one up.
- Hitman: Blood Money = Not much of a stealthie.
- Alien Shooter 2/Vengenance = Will have to give it more of a read.

Thanks!

That's where I'm at. I'm tired of the repetitive...

Oblivion = just can't get into it. Very pretty, but dunno, something was missing.
Diablo 2 = I'll still go back to and play again and again.
F.E.A.R. = Previously tried for an hour or two and like it, but stopped playing. Now 3/4 way through single player and is currently my single player game of choice.
C&C3 = Almost finished GDI campaign. Really enjoying a quality game. wishing wife didn't lose my freakin' disk
LOTRO = Can't seem to get into it. Can only play for a half an hour and get bored.
Company of Heroes = Just reinstalled to give another whirl now that I've stopped playing WoW
HL2 = I'll get to the end one of these days, maybe after I finish F.E.A.R.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. = Maybe I'll give it another couple of hours sometime now that I've canceled WoW.

Guess I do have a little more time to try games that don't immediately grab me now that I've canceled WoW

Well, I did actually buy the game thinking it was innovative... sorry if it bored me and made me feel like I wasted $50 and thought I'd share my opinion. Thought I'd save others the wasted money if they think they may feel the same as me.

Now, I do like innovation in my shooters. And I like innovation in my RPGs. I think FEAR rocks and I think BF series/UT is great. They each add their own thing. But somethings that can be added just don't make the genre more fun... at least not for me. I felt it took away from the game.

For me, that would be an instant travel to quest giver mod. I played through the first fire fight only. It was fun and challenging... but then it required me to walk back to hand in my quest killing the high... get your freakin' RPG out of my FPS!

The problem with the xxx domain is describing exactly what is porn. What some might consider porn others might not... The example just given by beaves leaves a lot open... so, penetration = xxx? How about a women dripping with goo? or spreading wide open so everyone can look at her intestines?

The recent problem with youtube pulling the breast exam videos as indecent is one quick example off the top of my head.
