Downloaded Infinite Crisis today. These sort of games aren't really my forte, mostly 'cause I'm always intimidated and afraid my lack of skill will ruin the game for my teammates, but it's a superhero game, so I can't *not* try it out.

Feels pretty similar to LoL so far, which isn't a bad thing.

At any rate, if you're interested in playing and haven't already signed up for an account, you know the drill: hit me up for a referal. :)

This has been stuck in my head the past few days. I have this theory that if it gets stuck in someone else's head, maybe it won't be stuck in mine any more. :)

Padmé Didn't Die of a Broken Heart

I find it odd that one of the most pivotal and mysterious moments in the Star Wars saga is discussed infrequently, and when it is the case is closed. Some time between 2005 and now the greater part of people who've watched this movie have all come to the

I've never gotten into the Dragon Age games. I think I tried to play one once, and the level of gore was just way too much for me, and then I tried to download the first game on Origins and they messed with my SWTOR password, so I stopped the download out of protest. However, reading everyone's posts about how much they're enjoying the latest game is making me want to dust off my old Neverwinter Nights games...

Kjara The very fake gore is at times a bit silly. :) I always turn off the "persistent gore" setting (it makes blood stay on people after fights... gross), and since I usually play a ranged character, I don't get too fussed about it after that. They really are a lot of fun, particularly if you're into companions and getting to know them (it's one of my favorite things in BW games). :)

Nimue I loved Dragon Age: Origins, but got rather disinterested in the series as soon as I read the first reviews on the expansion. The second one sounded so bad from the reviews that I never bothered with it, and Inquisition is a no-go because it requires Origin, but I can really recommend the first part. It had some excellent writing, and very well designed characters, and it's still one of my favourites.

So the new SWTOR expansion has been out for roughly a month now, and my main character is still not level 60. I've tromped around Booty Bay Rishi and hobnobbed with the owlbears enough to get to (or close to) 58, but for some reason I'm just not feeling compelled to log into the game.

I can't put my finger on it. I want to like the game (I mean, lightsabers and trooper armor, what's not to like?!), but nothing about it has me eager to log back in when I'm away.

Maybe it's the way EA has chosen to run its business model. Random dyes and a significant selection of the cosmetic armor pieces and housing decorations that are only available for a limited time continue to frustrate the heck out of me.

Maybe it's the little bugs like the fact that my Jedi robes still clip through my speeder and look like a giant mud-flap.

Maybe it's the gameplay elements that force me to spend more time traveling from point A to point B than actually doing the quest, or stick me in an annoying Huttball match when what I want to do is fight a warzone, or won't let me use a joystick in starfighter mode, or the convoluted mess that is the crafting system, or disguise a reputation grind as "conquering" a planet.

Maybe it's the little immersion breaking things, like Huttball, or the rainbow of lightsaber colors and ever-growing selection of bikini armor pieces. And why can't my bounty hunter use a blaster rifle? Speaking of blaster rifles, why does my trooper believe that running up and hitting someone with the butt of his rifle is more efficient than shooting them from anything further than 10 meters? And why does having a room chock full of chairs in a high-rise apartment that my Jedi could never afford on the capitol of the Republic help us conquer the frozen wastes of Hoth?

Anyways, I suspect I'm rambling. I want to want to log in. There are some really cool people in my guild, my characters have (at least to me) interesting concepts that I'm intrigued to RP with, and leaping into combat with a lightsaber is still probably the coolest thing I have ever done in a game.

Plenty of people enjoy the heck out of the game. More power to 'em, I wish I was one of 'em. But for some reason, when I sit down in the evening to play a game, if SWTOR enters my thought process at all, my reaction is usually akin to the reaction I have when contemplating a chore.

Unhh, I don't want to mess with that right now.

And that makes me sad.

Sami_jo I am still playing purely because I enjoy the company of our guild. The fact that it is quite literally impossible to do the new content in a group is the primary reason I only have two characters leveled. I really want to like it, but if it weren't for the guild, I'm afraid I would be long gone.

I never got to play the King's Quest games as a kid (but I did play the Space Quest and Police Quest games), but I always wanted to. Looking forward to taking a go at this!

Mermia Wow, I can't believe they're redoing it! I grew up playing Perils of Rosella (my first ever computer game) so I have no clue how this trailer compares to the original Kings Quest. But still, wow!

Episode VII's Sith Lightsaber isn't the most unorthodox I've seen.

If you've ever seen Episode I, you know about the saberstaff. It was designed with two blades and one hilt; like a staff. However, Darth Maul's saberstaff was very different than the original saberstaff. Exar Kun, the creator of the first saberstaff used

Ismene Interesting article. I was dubious about the new lightsaber but am slowly coming around on it. Not sure I buy a lightwhip though! :)

TiVO Yeah, I'm not overly fond of the lightwhip either, but it was my first exposure to unorthodox lightsabers. My second was an old West End Star Wars RPG game I ran for a couple friends. One of my players wanted a light-katana...
TiVO I'm looking at you, Squeezer. :)
Squeezer a.) We were in high school. 2.) The other player in our group wanted to play a non-force sensitive with lightsaber combat. d.) When you weren't running the game, you played a wookie, and did nothing but make the Chewbacca sound the entire game session. I think the light katana was pretty tame for those days. :)
TiVO Heh, the Wookie's coming back to me . . . I also think I recall giving Lilandra a light-whip. :)
Ismene Lol. Real talk!

I'm happy to spend money on games. I love play games of almost any kind, as my wife can attest to, and am more than willing to financially support the game. Some companies get the "F2P" right. Others, do not. I'm looking at you, EA.

My dwarf wizard just hit level 2 in the Pathfinder game I'm in right now. Just rolled my 1d6 for his hitpoint gain. Rolled a 1. This song immediately came to mind.
