my wife, who is as technically literate as a wet kite, said to me the other night "fucking clean up the mess you made in the kitchen, or you're not getting any tonight" and then later on said "even i know i dont want to use Vista, we don't need to upgrade to it, right, it looks prettier or somethin, right"?

I love this guys enthusiasm.. and i really hope Warhammer is as good as I think it will be.

I really hope they nail down the boring parts of other MMO's and concentrate on what makes the game fun.
I suppose when you hinge your games success largely upon PvP, err.. RvR.. then the players keep the game going more so than quests and epic dungeons.

this is the worst review I have ever read:

It's fucking unreadable, it backtracks mid sentence, contradicts itself and makes no fucking sense.

"Welcome to the world of Paladins... we've been dealing with this since launch."

Except you can end game tank very well and single target heal like a dominate as the premier PvP healer.. and were never billed as the DPS hybrid.. and were also the single only reason alliance progressed further raid-wise before the BC came out..
so.. ahh what now?

You haven't had it anywhere near as bad.. no where near.

31. err May 22, 2007, 17:48 ColoradoHoudini
I became upset with WoW's treatment of the Shaman class so i reinstalled BF2 to give me something to play between C&C3 runs..
I still hate the hitscan..but it's not terrible.. just quirky. Having to dolphin dive on the ground to gain accuracy is appalling, you should not gain a benefit from such an action.. oh well.

I play on a 64 player, infantry only server.. keeps me happy.
until ET:QW or UT3 come out anyhow.. or that one modern day shooter using army-types.. the video looked kickass, cant remember the name though.

I also played a ton of BF2142 in beta.. saw too many issues and didnt pick up the full game. It was fun at times for sure.. but not my cup o tea. I sure as hell wouldnt pick it up now, unlessit was under 20clams and came with a free asian massage

I stopped playing, but only because the developers dont know what the fuck to do with the Shaman class (my main).
There I am, standing in SSC.. healing.. but I am a DPS hybrid..
I healed from MC-Naxx.. but i'm supposed to be the DPS hybrid.

Now they nerf the Windfury damage (err, adjusted it to be "right"--cough cough) aggro dump still... no real CM representation..sigh.

my mana regen for casting still sucks as elemental.

still a bunch of shaman issues.

BUFF SHAMAN!!!!!!!!!!!

To get into BT, you have to .. i think.. Killed Nightbane, killed Magtheridon and also completed the 3 top lvl 70 instances on heroic.
Shattered Halls
---good freaking luck. It took our 5 best geared and best players 6 hours to get though Shadowlabs on heroic. These guys are insanely geared with the best Kara/Mag/Kazzak/Doomwalker/Gruul gear..and still it took that long. perfect class makeup too.
A regular Joe in a regular guild isn't going to be able to do the heroics, never mind the other fights.

So yeah.. if your guild sucks, or if you dont have a ton of time to play, you're never going to see inside of the Black Temple.
unless you play on a private server, which i am thinking of doing.. despite being able to get into the Black Temple after I complete a successful

After reading all of your responses, I now realize that this subscription model is not going to work for me.

I was so excited about the game, and now after thinking it through, I am no longer hyped. A 3d diablo+ game is not getting my 10clams a month.

Anyone remember Unreal XMP? it had promise.. but the sys requirements to run a decent game were out of this fucking world.

so.. anyhow, I kind of wish there werent as many vehicles in the game, sure i like them, but they take away from the game when it's a 20v20 server and 36 vehicles spawn in the beginning.

I hope the new game delivers. I need a new FPS to play.. why yes, i did just reinstall BF2.. okay who threw that?

Planetside was alright. but at the end of the days battles.. I just stared at the map and saw all the areas I took over and then lost and recaptured and then lost x10.
No NPC's to deal with..and a total rinse and repeat game style. I'm hoping Tabula Rasa brings more depth and more "addiction" than PS did.
I actually see enough room for WoW and WoS.. should it occur.
Although to be fair.. they could announce WoS and it could drop in 2 years.. right when WoW dies.

although I am a Shaman.. so WoW is dead to me right now.. YOU'RE DEAD TO ME!!

Well, I could easily see a MMORTS ... that would make a lot of sense. However, there are so many questions in that genre that would have to be answered.
(wasnt there a game called.. Ballerium(?) that was going to be a MMORTS?
How big would you let someones force get? is a faceless force enough to give me a personal connection to my troops? Do I get a main hero unit? The more I think about it, the more I don't see a MMORTS--to many questions.
FPS. well maybe.. and I'd be interested for sure.

or a regular Starcraft 2? sure.. why not. although I found that i didnt really get into Starcraft and found other RTS's better than both Starcraft and Warcraft.. off the top of my head.. Warlords Battlecry wtfowned Warcraft in every facet save for graphics.

If we are placing wagers.. I'd say MMOFPS.. why the fuck not.

/had a bit to drink tonight..rambling on
