<i>.... But I'm still waiting for a company to top Blizzard's effort with the WoW Collector's Edition. THAT was a work of art! </i>

I dunno, the NWN Collector's Edition was pretty damn nice. I own both the Blizz one you mention and the NWN one.

Beware, if you get the pre-order package now, you can't get access to the Toolset until September 18th. They apparently forgot to mention that in their press release.

If you actually had / or are playing DDO, you would understand my complaint. DDO isn't a terrible game, like EQ2. But it isn't a good game, like WoW, or many others. It seems like every player just runs through dungeons at screaming fast speeds, so people that prefer a slow, methodical, take your time and enjoy the freaking expensive game pace are shunned. I played it for a few weeks in beta, and then almost a full month once it was live for retail.

I mean come on, a game that calls itself a *ROLE-PLAYING* game that doesn't have *RP* servers, and won't even let player characters sit in chairs? Instead, when my character sits and I turn my camera he spins on his ass like he sat down on a pole? What the heck?

It's just sad to me that a game like WoW has better role playing opportunities than a game that licensed a D&D property. Sigh.

Is this the module that makes the game fun? Oh wait, no, it would take a whole heck of a lot more than a module.

*Didn't realize that using trademarks illegally for the purpose of making a profit fell under the realm of free speech.*

If you read the article, you would realize that this Kopp's lawyer is purporting that this is a *fair use* of trademarks. How is this man's use of trademarks any different than that of a How To book for MS Word? It isn't. You can't give games preferential treatment just because your favored company makes them.

<i> Like I have said many times, the new Starforce doesn't hurt you. You can always remove it after you have finished the demo if you are that paranoid.

And like I have said many times, a game has NO DAMN BUSINESS installing drivers on my system. I don't even need the remotest chance of something adding instability to my system.

Quite frankly I don't care if you can name a single postive or negative effect starforce has. Games have no < insert deity here > damn right to install a freakin' driver onto my system! Games don't need their own device drivers. That's just asking for a system to be more unstable. It's inexcusable, dirty, underhanded, and unnecessary. Maybe if they started treating people like customers instead of criminals they wouldn't need copy protection at all!

[i]There is no outside of the city, afaik.[/i]

[b]There is[/b], and has been for a while. The first gate in the stormreach harbor area is a big double one that leads to the market place. However, if you go down by the docks near the sailing ship where an NPC is standing waiting and go to your far right a second set of large gates leads outside to the jungle. Currently, the area is too dangerous for most players. I imagine that Turbine is keeping what happens outside the city under wraps for an upcoming update. Most people believe the Dragon encounter will be outside the city through those gates.

I myself have been outside the city, though not for long before I ran back inside (wolves, spiders, etc.).

Won't even run for me. Game starts up, and then a few seconds later it just exits without an error. Real nice MS, great job on testing!

Yes, Pirates of the Sword Coast is quite a nifty module, and it really looks nice. The polish is very apparent.

For a port I thought the game looked pretty damned good.

Okay, I didn't like the game, but I'm sick of seeing this lie being spread.

Pariah, is NOT A CONSOLE to PC PORT. Pariah is written using the *Unreal* engine, and from what I know was actually up an running on the PC before it was ever running on a console. So if anything, it was a port to a console, which even then it's really not, since it's the same engine that just happens to be able to run on multiple platforms.

Never has a game been uninstalled so fast either from my system. It just feels wrong.

I don't know why Blizzard would like to penalize you so much other than little brats whining about it.

Sorry, but that's just too much of an elitist attitude. I am neither little, nor a brat and I think it's pointless to haven an honor system without dishonor. I mean, how can you have honor if nothing is dishonorable?

The point is, when you reward but never punish people do whatever they want and they do even more of it than when they received no reward. This is a game and people like the *chance* to be able to have fun and play. They can't do that if they're constantly being killed literally every few minutes non-stop.

What you suggest would be ok if it wasn't nearly impossible for a character 10 levels or even 5 levels lower than another to fight back, especially when it comes to casting classes.

Now before you say, "you must be some low level n00b". I have 12 different characters across various realm types and my highest is a level 52 Druid, so don't even go there.

The point is, rewards have no meaning if there is no punishment.

There is no such thing as a console port when it comes to Unreal. Get your facts straight. The game was running on the PC long before it was running on XBOX from what I've heard anyway.

Did anybody notice the *biggest* change though? Not really gameplay affecting, but surprising:

"Horde and Alliance members cannot duel with each other regardless of realm type."

Wow. That's kinda bizarre. Basically, no more duels among same faction members. That's really going to piss a lot of people off.
