Recent Video Games
So what games is everyone playing right now? I'm playing MVP 05, Zelda Minish Cap, Champions of Norrath, and I just beat Mercenaries. I can't wait though for God of War and to get my hands on my PSP. This is sad but I couldn't stop holding a display box of one earlier today, lol. anyone else picking one up or already got one imported?

Re: Recent Video Games
looking forward to Guild Wars, messing with KoTOR 2 now... both good games if you like rpgs or whatnot.

Re: Recent Video Games
yeah I got to the end of KOTOR 2 and while I liked playing it, I just didn't have the drive to finish the last fight after I tried it once. I think part of it is cuz I heard the ending was kind of dissapointing. Jade Empires looks pretty kewl especially with the element of adding kung fu to the gameplay of the first KOTOR and supposedly more options on how u enfluence and effect how the game plays and eventually ends. Guild Wars sounds and looks pretty kewl especially not having to pay $10-15 a month so I can play the game I OWN.

Worlds of Warcraft and Myth II

Myth II was made by the same guys that make Halo, Bungie. The game was given to the community by Bungie when MS bought them out. If you're interested in playing, and it's a great game (I've been playing for 8 years in November) let me know and I can get you a free copy. [url]www.playmyth.net[/url] is the community site.

Re: Recent Video Games
yeah, i bought a boxed collectors edition copy of myth 2 for linux for $2 unopened ;)

I played WoW, its a prettier EQ, but once you cap it totally sucks.

Re: Recent Video Games
anyone heard about the D&D MMORPG? it's about time they finally did one but I haven't seen or heard much about it.

That Guy 03-02-2005 02:17 AM

Re: Recent Video Games
the first mmorpg were D&D (neverwinter nights and some dark sun one...) of course they weren't very pretty...

Neverwinter nights is like EQ or WOW?

That Guy 03-02-2005 07:37 PM

Re: Recent Video Games
no, theres a newer game called neverwinter nights that lets you sorta build your own adventures or something... the first one was a compuserve online game in the 1980s that looked like the old gold box games... 320x200 16 color gfx, super pixelated etc...

MLB 2k5 for me and not much else. Online play is pretty good and they cracked down on cheaters pretty good this year.

I like that when the Yankees are at home, the crowd does the "role call" in the first inning.
Also they have various stadium announcers at some point in the game say in the backround that "...attention everyone, anyone caught talking with a cell phone and waving to the camera like an idiot will be ejected and arrested" or something like that.

I want to try MVP soon.

Re: Recent Video Games
when i'm playing (i get maybe an hour a week, if that), it's usually March Madness '05 lately...i'll pop in Tiger Woods to get a golf kick...and once i trade in for MVP, i'll be playing that...how does RFK look in the game? i might have to use the Nats in a dynasty

Re: Recent Video Games
That_Guy - WoW has yet to add high end content. Once they do it should be somewhat exciting.

That Guy 03-03-2005 12:54 PM

Re: Recent Video Games
daseal - maybe, but they shouldn't have released something so unfinished... that and requiring 2000+ hours (not shitting you, literally 2000+ hours) to get a full set of the high end gear is beyond retarded. Its a frustrating waste of time because it seems pointless to waste time getting better items so you can have an eassier time getting better items that dont even exist yet.

battlegrounds sounds alright, but its just like a crappier version of what guild wars has right now for free... otoh i've maxed 4-5 characters now, so if you're looking to buy one ;)

Daseal 03-03-2005 03:37 PM

Re: Recent Video Games
Nah - mine will be maxxed soon enough. Only been playing on this server for about 5 days and I'm level 20. Not bad for a Warrior.

All MMO's release their games without them being finished. Problem is they're never finished. They have to be able to see how the classes balance out in order for them to design high end content. They also need to make sure they have some sort of balance before designing roles in high end encounters. MMOs are all about getting loot so you can more easily get more loot. WoW made leveling too easy and should have included a death penelty. It would make the game a bit more fair, in my opinion.

I think it has plenty of potential, but it has a ways to go. It's simply a dumbed down version of Everquest right now.

Re: Recent Video Games
yeah, asheron's call was the best mmorpg ever, but its so so very old now... I hated EQ, and since this is basically the same thing, i'm not super hot on it either... AC never had a lack of high level content, even when it took 15+ months for the first person to cap... and they also removed the cap...

That Guy 03-03-2005 05:01 PM

Re: Recent Video Games
The problem i have with WoW is it feels like time is just wasted and its pointless... an epic raid requires 40 people to all stay on for 10 hours, and you might get 2-3 good drops... of those, you got a 1/9 chance its for your class, then a 1/(number of people sharing your class) to get it... 2-3% per drop... its not fun, its f'ing retarded.

Daseal 03-03-2005 10:23 PM

Re: Recent Video Games
That_Guy - it's how MMO's work. I suggest you put down any big name MMO now if you don't like that type of atmosphere =p

WoW just came out you need to give it time to develop real end game content. WoW is just a dumbed down version of EQ. How can you hate EQ but like WoW? The commands are damn near the same. It's just easier.

That Guy 03-04-2005 04:18 AM

Re: Recent Video Games
daseal, i don't like either one... WoW was fine till you cap, then it totally sucks. Guild Wars, Asheron's Call, RYL etc were completely different and weren't dependent on insane timesinks ;)

Daseal 03-04-2005 11:25 AM

Re: Recent Video Games
Hrm - the leveling is the boring part in my opinion. Guess we'll just have to agree to disagree.

wait till you hit 60 and raid a couple weeks... i already know 100 people that have quit or ebayed from boredom so far, and the game hasnt even been out that long.

Daseal 03-04-2005 12:24 PM

Re: Recent Video Games
Once i hit 60 - I'm just going to mess around with it. Have you tried MC or Onyxia?

That Guy 03-04-2005 04:55 PM

Re: Recent Video Games
yeah on both alliance and horde, beaten 4 MC bosses and got a work around to invite new people every day... theres been a bug since beta that prevents you from continuing a raid properly... takes forever... got to phase 3 on onyxia and should kill her within a month or so, that's literally all there is to do...

you'll find warriors are complete trash pk too... anyone can kill them, and they do no damage.

Re: Recent Video Games
They'll be fixed. I've always liked them and nothing else has the mitigation skills.
