  1. Fix'd. The 100 hour/month worth of entertainment is, I think, the way to approach MMOs. You can't take the movie home after it ends, either, when you hit the movie theater and that's $7 for an hour and a half. Wow, what a steal! Don't try to convince anyone, though. If they aren't convinced by now chances are it's like unscrambling eggs.
  2. For one, it didn't have 3D graphics. Bah. A game could be 2d and 16-bit and still be better than the majority of modern games. I was being deliberately facetious and literal. If you want serious arguments though, NWN/2 have content creation toolsets, PW support, etc. Nothing in the BG games comes close to the potential of that. And the majority of modern games are crap, but that doesn't mean a good game or two aren't made from time to time. The whole "golden past of gaming" tune is bogus and very boring.
  3. And I own none. How's that fair I ask you?
  4. It's neat that you're so open about your self-criticism. Not sure I agree with all of it, though - but you made it so you probably have a better idea, heh. I don't know why you would say Obs' games aren't fundamentally fun. Indeed, I would say that they *are* fundamentally fun, with some annoyances detracting from the overall experience. K2 had essentially the same gameplay as K1 except for some horrible balance issues... which you would probably only notice if you are a rules lawyer or as anal as myself. It doesn't have the tactical depth of TOEE, but I don't think that means the game isn't as fun... simply that combat is not the focus. It's debatable whether NWN2 is better gameplay-wise than NWN, so I don't understand that either. And in both games, characters are more memorable both visually and from a writing standpoint than Bioware's counterparts, especially in MotB. Care to elaborate? Can't argue with the last point, at any rate. That's probably the single worst point in your games so far... it's good to see that at least you acknowledge this. For one, it didn't have 3D graphics.
  5. Thanks for clarifying. I might have been offended!
  6. I had them prescribed to me once (anxiolytics?). I didn't last long taking them. And it shows
  7. I know this is an issue with Vista, where programs run by an an account belonging to the administrators group (as opposed to THE administrator account) still aren't granted full administrative privileges unless specified by the user. I don't think the difference exists in XP, but I may be wrong.
  8. Yeah dude. Chill, or I'll have to bite your ****ing head off, understand?
  9. Oh yeah! I've been looking for a neato name for my KotOR game for days now. Thanks dude you da man!
  10. I think this belongs in C&C, as it pertains to Obsidian's games specifically. It's more likely you'll be trolled *ahem*, I mean, read there. *casts summon moderator*
  11. One of the best things in RPGs for me is the ability to play a completely different character each time. That of course involves thinking up and creating characters that have nothing to do with how I am myself. Always playing a carbon copy avatar of myself would be incredibly boring. Playing characters of either sex is not a problem, romance included. If you strip away the roleplaying aspect from roleplaying games, not much remains. I can't help but think that a lack of imagination is to blame. Different people, different tastes I suppose.
  12. Interestingly enough, that's probably the first time I've heard a politician being completely honest.
  13. That's such a cynical standpoint. It assumes people posting on the Internet have an agenda to push or something. By the way, did I tell you guys about the time I won the Math Nobel? True story!
  14. DRM does not work. It's that simple really. That stems from the fact that people who won't buy a game to begin with don't care to wait for it to download a week or a month. Maybe stuff like that will deter some of the more undecided illegal downloaders... but how many are those? That, of course doesn't even consider the fact that bandwidth costs are ever decreasing. It's a flawed concept.
  15. Yeah, not to mention the increase in load times. No thank you.
  16. What variant of 7.62 are you referring to? 7n14 rounds are only good for the SVU and SVD, which in the vanilla game, are WAY underpowered. As far as I know, there's only one chance in the whole game to grab a SVD, and the SVU isn't even present, save for perhaps one or two snipers located in unreachable areas. On the other hand, there's at least 3 instances I remember where you can pick a RPD - the other weapon that uses 7.62. But the RPD is only good for slowing you down... I hated the endgame, anyway. Multi spawners and invisible barriers = cheapness all across the board. FWIW, the 1.5.05 patch was released earlier this week... you may want to check it out.
  17. And more importantly, what do you mean use?
  18. Don't worry Ros - with Wikipedia, everyone and his dog is a Sc.D!
