Just a reminder: NO political discussion is allowed on these boards. None at all. Discussing politics "not too deeply" is still not allowed.
Hopefully that clears things up.
Also Stargate if you could stop posting really weird stuff and putting a youtube video in every post that would be great. I let the fact that you talk about nudity in almost every post slide but it's getting to be a little much.
Nah EA is hated for a lot more than day 1 DLC. They make shitty games that are half done and expect you to pay for them. They haven't delivered on any of their promises in years they aren't going to do so now. The reason they make money is FPS games, which don't require much or any real development. That's the only thing they are good at developing. I won't pay $60 bucks for a half done game nor will I pay for yet another RPG that has multiplayer tacked on to it. Those who want to play RPG games with friends will pick up an MMO or co-opt. Those who just want a good single player rpg won't give a shit about multiplayer. Also stop cutting good RPG elements out of games.
I want to Fight Krallkatorik beacause I really want to go back to Elona. I wouldn't mind going North and fighting Jormag tho. But please Arenanet, stop doing this lame Living Story updates that are really short and boring and focus on Expansion.
I am a "late blooming" trekkie, been watching all the Star Trek TV series, recently completed Star Trek Enterprise (TV).
I think the flirting between Uhura and Kirk is over doing it. I like it more if they'd stay professional, I can't wait to watch Into Darkness, I have high hopes now that you described it as closer in plot to the original star trek.
I like spaghetti westerns, I like Johnny Depp and I enjoy animation movies, so giving this a high rating is a no brainer for me. And it deserves it, it's funny, witty and pays a lot of tribute to this classic genre (even though it's technically no spaghetti western itself, since it's set only a few decades ago).
All voice actors give wonderful performances, I especially like Bill Nighy as Rattlesnake Jake and Abigail Breslin's Priscilla. Oh yeah and despite it being an animation flick, it's target audience aren't kids, as they probably wouldn't understand half of the jokes and none of the references. That doesn't mean it can't be watched with kids though, there is swearing and violence in it, but it's still kid friendly enough in my book.
What I enjoyed most about the film is the gritty look it has, I can't remember any other main-stream animation film that went for such a style. It makes it feel very real and it's breath taking at times in it's accuracy. I hope we see more ILM animated movies in the future.
This time a real western and heck what a great one. It's the famous story of Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday kicking arse and taking names. I especially have to praise Val Kilmer for his probably best performance, as Doc here. Kurt Russel, Sam Elliott and Bill Paxton are nothing short of amazing too.
The plot is based on real events, though a lot of creative freedom was taken, mostly the time frame in which the events happened is much shorter and the deeds of the characters are a bit overblown at times. Still it's one of the most accurate films about Wyatts Earp's life and the best in my opinion (far better than that Costner flick... and that guy actually tried to sabotage this film, by using his influence in Hollywood to prevent funding, what a prick).
The scenery is also great, giving not only a accurate look at the time, but also providing us with wide angle shots of the cool western setting. The major flaw of the movie it's that it tries to do too much with too little time. It has so many amazing characters, but few actually get to do anything besides spouting an occasional one-liner. I think this story would have worked better as a TV serious, giving all the characters time to develop, getting to know their motives and personalities. Still a great movie and a must see for western fans.
Yeah, Rango is one of my favourite, I know in 5 -10 years or more time I will still like it.
Tombstone is one of my favourite western as well. IMHO, Val Kilmer at his best, besides The Doors (1991). His Doc Holiday overshadowed that of Wyatt. This movie also made the later Wyatt Earp starring Kevin Costner looks bad.
Why you go and do Spoilerriffic Review, I have to read after!
So, what parts of the current game are you locked out from if you don't pay?
Funnily enough even sub-based games requires extra money for certain stuff.
Oh kitten it, you only want a reason to hate ArenaNet and will not see reason, I give up.
No. I want a reason to play this game which has lots of potential. I want some *ing PvP that is somewhat close to the epicness of GW1. Apparently ANet is the only company that can do that - and they keep finding ways to * it up.
You don't have to make it your mission to try and prove everyone that dislikes a move by ANet wrong.
I am not trying to be an elitist prick or anything, but...
With so many good games out there and, even, better MOBAs such as HoN/DoTA 2, people still play this game? I mean, just compare jungle or support in HoN and LoL and see which is better(be objective)...
I am NOT returning to LoL from HoN(is just Like going from a horse to an ass-no matter how popular ass may be, objectivelly it IS degradation). Pretty clear Reasons why...
People can dislike their character for several reason. But i think that the main reasons are they don't understant the profession well enough and they dislike the apperence of it (don't like armor choice, etc).
I played 7 of the 8 professions (didn't play Thief yet). My first was an Engineer and i still love the character and the gameplay, but i can't say that i have a main anymore. I prefer to do some dungeon with a particular profession so i play a similar amount of time with each of my profession depending on what i'm doing.
When i'm talking about people that don't understand their professions:
I, on 07 January 2013 - 04:47 PM, said:
The mesmer's elite skills are extremely useless compared to the elite skills of other professions.
Seriously, the Mesmer is one of the few profession with 3 great elite skill. Time Wrap is see by the majority of people (even those who don't play mesmer) as on of the best elite skill (11 second of quickness for all 5 party member WOW). 5 second of invisibilty can get you out of trouble and Moa Transformation is alway nice too see on a boss.
The only profession that i don't like yet is the Ranger and i know that only because i don't have yet find the good playstyle for my with this profession, not because the profession is shit.
Or maybe they simply don't want to force homosexuality into the game just to have it there?
If they put homosexual couples everywhere people would complain about how they only added homosexual couples to cater to the gay-community and so on.
No matter how they did it people would complain about it.
I just wish ArenaNet would approach the homosexuality thing as a normal and civil occurance instead of using the Sylvari as a scapegoat. There is nothing to fear from it. A lot of people think gays are that way just to get attention. Not true. You have no idea how many of us just wish we could blend in and be considered normal without all the finger pointing and talking and making the headlines and creating a wave of dispute when a state or country legalizes gay marriage.
But like Lordkrall said, no matter what they do people will complain about it. I just wish they had a footing and made a statement like "It's here, it's done and nothing will change." While I definately do not agree with the idea of "forcing" homosexuality on anyone, I do wish we had more gay couples with other races. It would make me smile so hardcore and put butterflies in my stomach to see a gay charr couple. Gay people go through and see straight relationships in movies, games, media and stories constantly, every day and hour. Throwing in a quick gay one here and there won't kill anyone. Or at least it shouldn't.
Can I also say how happy I am to see this being discussed civilly? I first avoided this thread, even if I am gay because I wasn't up for slams, insults and arguments of which I thought I would find here. Thanks GURU!
