    Sorry for my Absence

    A "passion thing" is still, at bottom, working for free, labour of love or not. Therefore more realistic expectations would be good; if they want top calibre writing, then they either need to give someone a crack at it who may not be so brilliant and train them up, or they need to start offering...

    Sorry for my Absence

    Welcome to being a writer, mate; you'll spend a lot of time having people critique your work and not finding it up to par, that's part of the business. I applied as well but it took MONTHS to get a reply, and then I only managed to get an email saying "contact this person for an interview"...

    Race Update!

    You're right...I probably will not be playing another MMO again. I grow infinitely weary of promises of games being cutting edge this, new and intriguing that, brilliant roleplay etc and so forth and further; then a barely out of beta game that looks like every other game out there is released...

    The Beer (and Wine) Thread

    Been following too many Federal propoganda programmes, eh? The Dutch focus just fine. Fluoride and aspartame have more frightening side effects than pot, and those two chemicals seem to be in everything in the US last I saw. But I digress! On the topic; ze husband made friends with a...

    The Beer (and Wine) Thread

    Yes, gods forbid...it's not like the Dutch manage to smoke it and still master several languages or anything *smirk*. (Eddie Izzard space there)

    Pros / Cons

    In Ryzom, everything was crafted - it was the only way to make items, and items were either off monsters or harvested. And it worked. There were people who did nothing but hunt - and everything they got off the mobs was useful, so they never got rid of the stuff or just sold it to a merchant...

    Pros / Cons

    I've honestly never seen a game where crafting was cumpulsory. The point of having crafting in there is, if you don't like doing it, you go and make friends with someone who does, and get your items sorted. Too many times, people just decide to make a dozen alts and be their own wee army in a...

    Race Update!

    SOE may be evil incarnate, but the fact is a) they actually have games people are willing to buy and b) they make a considerable amount of money doing so. Personally, I think I'll check back on HJ in six months and see if anything is going on, but I won't be playing this game; it's...

    Ltb!! Lts!! Ltt!!

    Although there were a lot of things wrong with Horizons, the one thing I LOVED was the way they had their auctions set up; roughly akin to WoW, you put the stuff on merchants and then let them do the work without shouting all the time. The perk over that system as opposed to WoW was each city...

    Granado Espada

    I have NO idea how you managed to download this game, Seeria, I've tried for three days now and I've managed to download two parts only out of nine. Seems I'm not the only one in this boat though, so I think I'll wait until they get a more stable downloading system.

    Granado Espada

    To be honest I'm not certain I'll bother testing this one; controlling three characters and kill kill kill sounds to me like an awful lot of work!

    Disappointment

    Blimey, it sounds like they're a lot further behind than I expected. With that said, if a game doesn't release it's not the end of my life. Either Hero's Journey will eventually be released or its vapourware; but they haven't bought my loyalty enough for me to valiantly stay around and hope...

    Granado Espada

    I'm not in the US, but thanks. I couldn't even get the website to load last night so I'll give it a try again to day.

    The Beer (and Wine) Thread

    I am partial to the Spanish reds. They're considered a "poor man's red" because they don't come from such distinguished areas where reds are famous, but I once had a merlot (gods wish I could remember the label!) that amazed me with its dominant fruit flavour, only the merest taste of tannin...

    Granado Espada

    It seems they're starting the closed beta testing for this. I've got an invite but I can't get the mirror sites to work. Not surprising as it seems this is a game for Singapore and surrounding countries only (which I didn't realise till now, oops). Anyway, I'm going to give it a try if I...

    And stupid people breed. That's the worst part. Gah.

    The Beer (and Wine) Thread

    Re: The Beer Thread I honestly think most young folk's hatred of beer is because they haven't had good beer. Come on, Budwieser? Miller Light? Fosters, Australian for Wee? But then most hate coffee as well. If it's not loaded with sugar and tastes like lemonade, they just won't drink it...

    The Beer (and Wine) Thread

    Re: The Beer Thread I homebrew. And I don't mean that manky stuff uni students make that tastes like an old sock. I do proper homebrewing. I tend it carefully, and it's usually better than anything you can get even down at the pub. I have currently in my garage about 20 bottles of stout...

    Ever have one of those days?

    ...I'd offer you chocolate...but that's not all that bril is it? How about a new graphics card?

    Evil

    I imagine it had more to do with your tone. And putting a few more snarky things into your sig line probably won't help will it, any more than typing ---- when everyone knows what you mean.... Back on topic however; since there's no evil, only factions, it does give a certain ambiguity to the...
