    ****ing hell that main riff is brilliant.
  2. Irrelevant and non-existent are not the same thing. The purely supernatural is, indeed, irrelevant. No one knows if it exists or not, and frankly no one should care, for just that reason.
  3. You don't - by definition, the metaphysical is an unknown. This, the act of claiming knowledge about the metaphysical is absurd, regardless of the stance taken.
  4. The category is, by definition, irrelevant. Having an opinion on its validity is stupid and baseless, regardless of the opinion itself.
  5. Trying to claim any knowledge about the existence of the supernatural (which, by definition, cannot be *known*) is about as absurd as it gets. The question of supernatural entities is a silly, irrelevant one, and having a belief either way with regards to it is equally silly.
  6. As a hard agnostic, I find strict atheism just as ideologically absurd as theism. That said, militant atheists are nowhere near as obnoxious/harmful to society as evangelical Christians, and anyone who is legitimately offended by these displays needs to grow up.
  7. And that's where I disagree with Avellone. Though, even if you think the death of the force would be omnicidal, I still maintain Kreia's gambit was always ultimately to force her own death at the hands of the Exile on Malachor V, to finally silence the echo which had given birth to all of the conflict in the game, rather than to actually kill the force.
  8. And if that's really all you took away from the game, then you missed a lot.
  9. Doesn't take much "dissection" to see that Karpshyn obviously paid no attention to the plot of the game which his novel is supposed to conclude.
  10. That's the thing - KotOR2's writing does, indeed, far transcend "lightsabers and guns that go pew pew." If Karpshyn was not up to the task of continuing the rather serious take on the Star Wars universe that KotOR2 introduced, he should not have written a tie-in novel in its continuity.
  11. Honestly, the excerpts I've read have been crap. It seems Mr. Karpshyn decided to write a tie-in directly after KotOR2 without actually playing KotOR2.

    Carl Albert rules. I can play the first half of that solo, finally. Now I need to figure out what is actually being played during that crazy legato in the second half...
  13. I'd still say I see nothing morally wrong with responsible piracy of certain media (music, namely). In the past year, I've bought 6 albums and 3 band shirts, and gone to 4 concerts, all from bands I'd have no clue existed without piracy. Make of that what you will, but I don't think anyone will ever convince me that I'm hurting the market with my practices.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbKzAzltTC8 Learned this guitar solo in a few hours. Fun, though pretty simple as far as Frank Aresti soloing goes - no tapping at all.
  15. And if it is, it shouldn't be. I can't see a legitimate justification for preventing a paying customer from using his product due to violations on community message boards - that's absurd. http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2011/11/14...ffecting-games/

    Iron Maiden got big, but Riot are a better overall band, imo. I mean, just compare this to Maiden's recent stuff - and Riot have been around longer, too!
  17. "pathetic"? am thinking the correct word is "surreal." you give us feedback regarding the site maintenance o' the game you got a needs to announce indifference regarding? Bwahhhhaaaahhhaaahhh! keep posting. please. HA! Good Fun! I got a beta invite to SW:TOR, too. I gave it away. Is it really that alien a concept to you that someone could have optimistically signed up for the beta earlier on, only to lose all interest in the game later? "I am thinking" that you're just trolling at this point.
  18. CoD4 is better than anything that has come after it.
  19. Gotta love the language they use in the developer notes: So, "Udina is a jerk?" I think we already know that.
  20. Yeah, nevermind - no idea how I missed that when I read through it. Also: What the **** kind of **** writing is this?
  21. There's actually nothing in the leaked information that states outright that this happens - read through it yourself if you don't believe me. Some of the dialogue with The Illusive Man sort of hints at it, but it's far from definite. The leaked plot info is fairly incomplete - there are mentions of but not much on what these things actually are or how exactly they are used to defeat the Reapers. I wouldn't doubt it. One of the few things I did actually like is . Kinda sets them up as a nice foil to the Reapers.
  22. I've just read through the entirety of the leaked plot, and while it may hint at this it's kinda far from certain. What sounds *really* lame though is . If any of you want to read it, here it is: http://pastebin.com/KYJNWGug It's probably worth nothing that it's far from a complete plot summary - fragmented cutscene directions, mainly, and main quest descriptions.
  23. That's the thing. It *doesn't* depend on your choices. It happens no matter what you do, even if you killed the queen.
  24. So, I've heard (indirectly) some rather unsettling "leaked" ME3 info. Stuff like . Go figure. If this turns out to be true, BioWare is truly dead. So much for the "big, branching story spanning three games," eh?
