  1. Video Games: No Man's Pie

    Old Alterac Valley was the best PVP experience ever. It felt like a continuous war, the objectives, the constant back and forth, the battles for Stonehearth. I remember the first time I entered AV on my first toon, a level 58 hunter. Actually travelling to the entrance of AV, somewhere north of the Hinterlands. I played in that battle for about 2 hours, logged out in AV, went to work, came back and logged in- to still be in the same battle and continued fighting for another 3 or 4 hours. In later variations of Alterac Valley, my guildie Paladin squad use to all spec ret after raiding and just defend Stonehearth for the entirety of the match TBC launch was also quite fun. The Horde basically camped the the Dark Portal for the entire evening running up to the midnight launch and crushed any alliance trying to pass through. Going /who Hellfire after midnight just showed Paladins that bubbled and ran through. It was one tough night of leveling
  2. Video Games Thread: For the Love of Zeus, Give Me One!

    How someone, anyone can play Star Wars Battlefront and not be filled with rage at what could have been a great game is beyond me. It is not fun, the brilliant visuals and sounds are swamping your brain with nostalgia. Its crap, you'll be pissed when the novelty wears off. Dont even bother trying to defend it. If you've got more than 15 hours in that game and still defend it, please state so, so I can ignore your posts from now on.

    Play it for another 3.5 hours and if you still like Battlefront, you're legally braindead.

  5. Video Games: Excuse me Sir, the machine ate my quarter

    Yep - you get a free level 60 character if you sub and you can buy level 60 tokens ingame to get more level 60s. What with the way they zone content now, it should be possible to make a level 60 toon and go back and just do the class missions. They downgrade your level to match the zone you're in. As it stand you can jump straight into the Knights of a Fallen Empire expac, the first chapter is specifically designed to teach you the basics of your class and all your abilities. Right now, my light-side lady sith marauder is encouraging her companions to breed as much as possible so we have offspring to bring up according to our beliefs. Quinn has been rather receptive to being treated like a breeding stud. The game is not without its flaws, but still a good Star Wars experience overall, imo. I just gotta get through the Hutt stuff so I can see what the Revan expansion is like!
  6. Video Games: Excuse me Sir, the machine ate my quarter

    Downloaded the Rainbow 6 Beta this weekend and played about an hour or so of it - its alright, got fond memories as Rainbow 6 was my goto shooter when I was really into them. Being really disappointed with Battlefront and needing a Star Wars fix, I updated Star Wars : The Old Republic and resubbed for a month. Well, my server had shutdown and I had been moved so I had lost the name Lyanna Stark, so now I'm Tyrelliana Starke. My head almost exploded with all the things I had forgot in the 18-24 months since I last played it. Subbers get a free Level 60 Character and I've made a level 60 Powertech and am levelling my 50 Marauder through the 2 expacs to get to the latest expansion. 50-55 seems to be dealing with the Hutts alot while 56-60 is a Revan expansion, looking forward that and the 60+ content looks ace, it seems very story driven what with the chapter outlines. I'm having fun so far, but this game seriously strains my pc. Just a few days ago I was playing Battlefront with 120fps while TOR putters along at 45-60 when the screen is fill with effects and flashing lights etc.
  7. How have your appliances been holding up?

    I know its not technically an appliance, more of an entertainment system, but I have to give props to my PC. Its an i7 950 at 3.07 overclocked to 4.00, 6gb ram and the only upgraded part of it - a Nvidia 780ti (from 480sli). Its 5 years old this month and its ripping through the titles still. Battlefront: 90-100 fps on ultra, 120+ on high Starcraft 2: 60-90fps on max settings, eventhough I play on low for multiplayer I started a PC upgrade fund waaaay back when I kickstarted Star Citizen, I may just splurge that amount on a month abroad instead. Bought it from Overclockers.co.uk and I wouldnt hesitate to use them again.

    All the time I spent playing Battlefront over the weekend was spent wishing I had gotten into the Overwatch Beta -.-

    Ugh - having a Terran mission in the epilogue of LotV just finished the game for me. Grosse -.- Terrans.
  11. Video Games: Excuse me Sir, the machine ate my quarter

    I've only played LotV for a couple of hours so far, I'm on the fence so far, but still enjoying the experience. Allied Commanders is fun - though the pathetic difficulty settings and the idiotic leveling system is going to be a problem. I am assuming brutal cant really be managed since you have to level up your abilities to be truly able to handle the scenarios. We'll see after this weekend. Warping in units looks so bloody cool now though!

    Humble Bundle is doing a Total War Bundle - Its everything, not sure about the latest, but its pretty bloody impressive.
  13. Should tipping be banned?

    Logic dictates that due to the extortionate prices in NY City that their tipping percentage should in fact be lower than the rest of the US. I've been watching a lot of Star Trek lately.
  14. Should tipping be banned?

    I'm so glad I got out of the service industry. All this tipping hoo-ha is getting ridiculous. Rude waiters refusing 15% wtf?
