In case you didn't see this post, it's pretty worthy of commendation.

Not sure which is dumber, the idea itself, or that this is even patentable.

The last day dawns on the Kingdom of Ascalon. It arrives with no fanfare, no tolling of alarms. Those who will remember, will speak fondly of the warm morning breeze. People carry on with their daily lives, unaware that in a short while… everything they have ever known will come to an end.

For what its worth, it did get my money worth in all the campains from gw1, thank you Anet, so many great memories and great friends that i made and my guild and guildies also,

That was disappointing.

I was hoping we'd learn how Rox grew such abnormally large eyes.

It's great that you at least enjoy the series enough to give it 7s/8s and 9s of 10 but I dare say if the interpersonal relationship between all those characters and their political intrigue are not something you enjoy - you'll probably get bored by it sooner or later.

It does offer high-fantasy elements at time, but the author (and the show runners) has been very subtle about it for the most part. Almost no one in Westeros is aware that magic or the supernatural even exists. So if that is what drives your interested, I hope you'll not be too disappointed.

I'd assume you'd like Spartacus better, though - if Granny Tyrell can't make you snicker ;)

I bet he'd like her just fine if she was some hot young thing.

The Queen of Thorns is actually a very interesting, devious character. I personally like her. Too bad she's in the books for such a short time.  

But basically, I agree with this post 100%. The core of these books is NOT high fantasy/horror. It's about the characters, the intrigue and the politics. As you move deeper into the story there are more fantasy elements introduced, yet it's always second to what is truly going on in the story with the characters.

What on earth do you mean with Asian??? Ok I did only get to level 12 or so, but I have not seen any Asian like content. Tera is more Asian like and they have tried to appeal more to western audience with Tera then many other Asian titles. Perfect World is Asian publisher, but Cryptic is from USA. Honestly Blizzards newest expansion with Pandas seems much more Asian then Neverwinter.

I didn't say "asian", I said "asian template".  The underpinnings of Neverwinter are the basic layout that asian games seem to favor, from the cash shop offerings, the auto-quest trail leading you around by the nose, the utterly skippable quest descriptions, the focus on combat as the means to every end, the lack of exploration even as a possibility and the inherent grind (kill 10,000 monsters eventually I'm sure) to obtain the various levels of available currencies in order to "get" anywhere in the game. I stood in one area for about fifteen minutes while I was doing something else in the room and every thirty seconds, like clockwork, one NPC said exactly the same thing, over and over and over again. And over and over again. Lousy design and tells me the developer had no time or no attention for the little details like how often an NPC should squawk.

Why you quoted your entire other post, I have no idea. Your number one point is that there's player created content in there that has sexy females moaning in heat and you really like that in your games. To me, that is so far from a selling point, we're standing on different planets.

Neverwinter isn't a terrible, horrible game. It's just not a good game. It's generic as hell, from classes to graphics to gameplay to storyline. It's *vanilla* and unimaginative. I have played this game before under about fifteen other names, most of them eastern, and it doesn't even seem to have anything to do with the Neverwinter intellectual property itself, which is a crying shame considering how great the first games. Cryptic may have wanted more for their game, I don't know. Perfect World has turned it into a reasonable clone of every other Perfect World game they've ever produced. All the Aeria games are just like this too, for the record.

#2185226 Pyramids of Egypt

Posted Sparky on 28 March 2013 - 04:33 PM

I always heard that they were tombs...even though much of the stuff was never recorded, its known that they were pillaged over the years.  now its just a bunch of rock with a few clues to their original purpose.

I'd be curious to see the show sometime...i never heard the battery idea before.  I can see how static from the high winds could generate some voltage in the copper...not sure how they would convert that into something useful like current.

i think static electricity on a large amount of copper would act more like a capacitor than a battery.  like, there would be no way to control how fast the charge moves.  It would just zap whatever when it got close enough with a path to the ground. and then have no charge (until the wind built it back up again).  During a storm it would be crazy though...

The only thing i could find was that Limestone, which covered a lot of the pyramids, not only looks good but is semi-conductive because of its calcium carbonate (which deteriorate over time).  Why would they want an electrical charge on a giant pointy rock is beyond me.

Maybe the pyramids were built for tourism, and the electricity generated was for escalators for the old or young people who don't feel like walking up. Maybe that's why the men shaved their heads...so their hair wouldn't stand up straight when they rode the escalator.

#2154837 How you got started

Posted Red_Falcon on 31 January 2013 - 12:19 AM

I found Prophecies while randomly checking a game store and bought it out of curiosity.
Turns out the game was just launched and played it for 7 years or so.
I played almost all other MMOs out there as well but no one lasted more than a month or two - I'm simply not into those kind of MMOs where the goal is farming gear and playing gear/RNG-based PvP.
They make me feel like they want you to be a hamster running on a wheel while you pay monthly fees, well * that.

I stopped playing GW1 I think it was 5-6 months before GW2 release; I left my then girlfriend and the whore dumped my game codes so I couldn't recover the account.
Not that I really cared tho, I was done with GW1 anyways, and since no expansions were coming but GW2 was underway I did not need it.
In that timespan I gave WoW a chance (1 month, lvl 80, game was a complete joke that seemed designed around very mentally retarded people, I quit disgusted), also played Diablo 3 and quit in a week as it seems once the game is complete you're meant to repeat the same exact stuff over and over, almost tempted to try Darkfall again but common sense saved me money, then GW2 released and here we are.
