  1. Hey Naam, been a while! I've been getting back into the game recently, moved Thalarios over to Emerald Dream Alliance-Side and its been pretty good so far. Recently a couple PvP guilds faction transferred over to Horde so the Alliance here could definitely use a solid group. Send me a message whenever you're around and we should talk shop.

    P.S. I'm pretty sure I still owe you 4k.

  2. Main RP Toon: Thalarios...a

    Horde Or Alliance? Haha.

    Guild: The Cartel Enforcers.

    What was your favorite RP event or storyline? Easily the Booty Bay Extravaganza put on by our glorious leader Sowell.

    Who is someone that you used to RP with and haven't heard from in a long time, that you miss the most? I'd say Fynne, as I've kept in contact with most others. Mad love man.

    Share a screenshot from an RP you enjoyed: While not a screenshot, "On the virtue of the dagger and the tyranny of the shield" is perhaps one of the best speeches I've heard in this game and should be viewed by all.

  3. The only bad thing about this game is the two-shotting giants and their mammoth friends.

    That's probably one of my favorite features so far, makes the game more immersive. My fearless Nordic Warrior can cut down dozens of bandit scum, but hell if I'm messing with a 20 foot tower of pain.

    Also, I always hear "Boosh!" when I shout.

  4. Subjective matter being presented as fact.

    Just sayin' broski, any review is a subjective point of view. It gets even more subjective when you cherry pick reviews you feel are full of 'truth and integrity' based on your own subjective vision of the game. Besides, I really don't see how any of this is relevant to the topic at hand besides the fact you wanted to bitch and moan about DA2 summoar.

    Bromeo to the rescue.

    Forums are a menacing battlefield of "I thinks", "In my opinion", and "I did/didn't _____". The point of this topic is to discuss the upcoming game Star Wars: The Old Republic, not argue about someone else's opinion on Bioware doing a shitty or amazing job on Dragon Age 2. Whether or not you think he tried to elevate his opinion, Ryoku raised a valid point about Bioware releasing a unsatisfactory game to HIS standards that made HIM uncomfortable with the company's next move into Star Wars. Passive-aggressiveness directed towards that post isn't going anywhere except down a dark, often-used road of internet tears.

    This is a thread about "The Old Republic", not "Say good things about Bioware or get out" after all. The post he made contained nothing stating 'This is the truth' or 'This is unquestionable'.

    That said, I have felt somewhat anxious with Bioware at the reigns of this game. I feel as if the game is coming off as a Single-player RPG with "Multiplayer-tendencies" rather than an MMO by today's standards. I'm still picking up a copy because it's god damn Star Wars, but the lasting effect seems to be waning.

  5. New pants please.

    No one builds a better world, and gives you more freedom in that world than Bethesda. No one writes better than Bioware and as such their characters are great and so is the dialogue and story.

    I'd have to disagree with this, as much as I enjoy Bioware games.

    Baldur's Gate is in the realm of sappy nostalgia, so the story still remains amazing in my heart. Same with KOTOR. Dragon Age and Mass Effect however are near copies of each other in terms of character and plot development.

    Shepard - Spectre. Bad ass soldier who doesn't play by the rules and has clearance to anything he wants. Restricted space? I'm the goddamn Batman.

    Dragon Age Protagonist - Grey Warden. Bad ass soldier who doesn't play by the rules and has clearance to anything he wants. That area locked up? I drank Darkspawn blood. That dude about to get executed? He's coming with me, Grey Warden conscription.

    Saren/Logain, the main "mortal" antagonists are both war heroes who can't be guilty of any sort of crime, and constantly undermine the heroes journey throughout the game.

    I'd draw more references about Wrex/Shale but I'm just delving into fanatical ranting now.

  6. Yeah, from what I've heard it's not bad. The thing I keep hearing getting thrown around on Vent is "it feels like an action game". It sounds like it's fun to dick around in, but I don't know if it has lasting appeal.

    That's exactly how I (and a couple other friends who are trying it out) feel. Very fast-paced, a lot of fun just MOVING around with acrobatics, and the PvP has some flair to it. The customization is a lot more complicated than most games, and feels lacking compared to CoH/CoV and Champions.

    However, it feels very much like the novelty will wear out at a point. We're actually just playing it until Rift and TOR come out.

  7. PvPers are doing the fight for honor and the commendations, Jeed. PvEers are doing it mostly to get the raid Baradin Hold. It behooves the PvPers to trade wins to boost their reward, while win trading halves the available time to raid BH.

    Trading wins would actually benefit PvEers in that regard. If anything they would be the ones organizing that sort of thing. A raiding guild would then have a designated time to run Baradin Hold.

    Horde own Tol Barad? Well, we're trading it over to Alliance in 30 minutes. Form up the raid.

  8. In light of recent events, I'd like to turn the time over to the Alliance, now, so they can QQ about the imbalance of Tol Barad.

    Man, I hate how we've owned this BG for the last week. Seriously Blizzard, you have some nerve giving us all of that free honor that we'll probably get back in the early hours tomorrow.
