    Hey guys. Finally started up the game again the other day and remembered this place. Ha ha. :) Man life gets so crazy sometimes. I've been pretty busy mostly playing other games, though. Cool to see some folks still hanging around here. I've still got to get a character to level cap.. :D

    Going through all of the Final Fantasy games in order. Still playing the first one with ~40 hours on it. Probably going to be done sometime in 2015 at this pace. Lol..

    Also, I recommend To The Moon if you enjoy a really good story. Not much game play elements other than finding 5 "clues" to help you move onto the next area. But the story is so amazing. :D

    Also, sounds like your parents didn't like it when you played outside as a kid :P

    I guess you could say that. :P

    Wasn't your name something else a while back on here..? I don't remember it being KilltroX with that avatar.

    Congratulations Slayerviper. :)

    I still read every now-and-then "KilltroX" but I largely don't have anything to add most of the time since I don't play D3 very much anymore. Doesn't seem like much other discussion goes on in here lately. :P

    Azriel must be stoked that those did pass (marijuana passed in Colorado too). :P Now for the rest of the country to follow suit.

    I've been largely playing Minecraft again, with some GW2 and even some WoW lately. I did wind up playing MoP, but I still haven't reached 90 or really done much of anything. I've mostly been working and spending my free time outside of the house now that I'm out on my own (no overbearing parents!!)

    I Love ASoIaF & GoT. I hope you've already received GRRM's blessing before continuing any further, though. If you haven't already, that is.

    I actually had a day a while back where I came home from work around 2pm, checked the net for a few minutes and passed out on the bed. Woke up the next day with my alarm going off for work at 5am. ~15 hours of sleep and I was still so tired waking up. Lol.

    Quote from Bleu42

    Had a whole thing typed out, but screw it. Athene's a twat.

    I disagree. He's a pretty awesome guy.


    Watch the whole thing.. or skip to about halfway through. This is only one example of him raising money for good causes. I can see how people dislike him without doing any research.


    If you take something like this seriously I just don't know what to say. Even at the end of this video he does something pretty awesome.

    Something completely out of the norm for me, but thought it was pretty good!

    I just hopped on WoW for a bit to check out what I could without having MoP (no plans to purchase it).

    Pet battles are available without MoP. I did a few pet battles and it honestly just felt like I was playing Pokemon. It'd probably be pretty cool if I was into WoW still and it was something I did during downtime between dungeons or what-not. There are achievements to earn towards the pet battles, and like the video above there are random critters around the world to battle and capture.

    Its only major downfall is other players, who can swoop in and battle the critter you're going for (i.e. "kill stealing" in another form.) Not a big deal but a minor annoyance. Luckily they're on the mini map with a little green paw print, so you can easily find another potential battle.

    Your pets gain levels to earn new skills, as well as go towards achievements (i.e. level 10 pets above level 3, etc.) There are also "trainers" scattered around the world to go and battle. I can't really tell you how these work since the one I attempted to interact with was bugged. There's also the option to battle other players once you unlock all 3 of the pet slots (one unlocks with your first pet leveling up to 3, the other at pet level 5).

    Other than pet battles, I was oddly enough able to play a Pandaren. The only thing that was locked was the Panda class, leveling past 85, and the new 85-90 zones.

    Edit:

    The new character creation screen is pretty nice. Pets + Mounts and Achievements are shared across characters now. Which is pretty awesome I'll admit. No longer do I have to feel pinned to one character due to having that awesome mount I love.

    Edit 2:

    I've done a couple pet battles with other players. They're incredibly lame. Really boils down to luck with what pets you have, as opposed to strategy in the Pokemon games. It might be different with everyones pets at level 20 (pet level cap) but for now it's just disappointing.

    I say it's luck because people with Collectors Edition pets from previous expansions are incredibly overpowered. Cataclysms Deathy (or w/e his name is) has a move that can one shot your active pet. There are so many variations in pet types that it's luck of the draw on what you and your opponent have.

    Pets all level differently as well, along with different rarities of pets you capture. (Poor, Common, Uncommon, Rare). Even the Rare pets that I have caught haven't been a match to any CE pets or Blizzcon pets. My Fetish Shaman from the Diablo 3 CE seems to be a carry, since his spells later on look pretty good.

    Like I said this is just first impressions.. maybe the level 20 battles are more balanced.

    posted a message on Anyone tried Lineage 2?
    I used to play Lineage 2 back around its release date. It was a lot of fun. Unfortunately I tried going back to it a while back and found it incredibly boring all by myself. Most of the players are already level capped and in uber gear. So you're mostly going through the game solo unless you find some people to go in it with you.

    But despite that, I had some of the most fun playing Lineage 2. The zones were beautiful and varied, the music was really great, and the fishing was absolutely great! I used to fish quite a bit in the game, definitely try it out.

    All of the races have unique classes, so it might take you a while to figure out what you want to play. The ranger class is a lot of fun, as well as the dwarf class (I forget what they're called).

    I posted this earlier in another thread, but I love the log in screens for this game.

    Quote from ectohex

    Mixed feelings. This is the first expansion I'm missing (quit back in January) and I admit do feel left out and kinda weird. At the same time, I know I hadn't really had fun in the game since leveling in WotLK. Nothing in MoP particular interested me, but I'm getting curious about the consensus among different groups of friends that pet battles are the apparently the most fun thing in a while.

    Anyone here playing? What do you think so far?

    I'm not playing, but I've been reading a bit about it lately out of curiosity. After running into a Collector's Edition in Walmart, I couldn't help but wonder what was up. A trip through the official forums proved to be typical, some people complaining about minor things, and the hyena's jumping at the posters throat.

    I was pretty interested in the pet battles out of everything, but I think I'd rather just play Pokemon (White 2 + Black 2 are right around the corner). Here's some of the pet battle game play, though.
