  1. With CCP biting the bullet on the Vampire MMO I feel Obsidian should try again for the World of Darkness license to make a Bloodlines 2 type CRPG. With CCP now in a evaluation stage of what to do next with the property this may be a great time to apprach the topic with them. I know from previous comments from Feargus they were just inches away from getting the lic from White Wolf before they were bought out by CCP. Approching CCP now while the iron is hot may be a golden oppurtunity for a very popular franchise that most gamers know even if they don't realize it. My 2 coppers.
  2. What I like about it is the char sheet is VERY similar to the PnP version. Thus the back end mechanics I am sure are going to be pretty similar as well. I just hope they have not only cyberware but bioware in the game too. My PC's always prefered to pay extra for the organic mod solutions. None the less glad I funded it and looking forward to it!
  3. On a related note, I bought the witcher 1 from steam recently. Played it about 30 mins and I simply couldn't get into it. I read all the hype, saw all the praise and I simply for the life of me can't understand why it is so highly regarded as a CRPG. Granted I was only playing for a half hour but most all games I play are able to capture me within that time period of playing. New Vegas, DA:O, XCom, Civ5, NWN2, Skyrim etc all 'got' me right out of the gate. Perhaps it's the fact I am forced into playing a specific character and can't create my own or the controls seem a little anti-intuitive. E
  4. Actually, us adults can handle a joke without flying off the handle.. Watch the tone. It wasn't a joke, it was a poorly masked snyde remark which I returned, just didn't mask it. Adults can tell the difference.
  5. Actually its really smart. This new exp pack is all about catering to female gamers. They love building, dressing up, RPing parents/nuturing kids (if you doubt any of that see The Sims player stats). IMO any studio that tried to brings in girl gamers is ok im my book.
  6. Or you could just get a whore and dress her up in bikini mail, for a fraction of the time and effort. Or I can import a clown NPC, call it Drowsy Emperor, and have him prance around in game spouting dialog which he thinks is clever, but few else do, becasue he is a attention whore? Either case without these mods faces and bodies look blocky, jagged due to being 'consolized'. These FX edits actually uses the power of video cards that have been made in the past few years to made NPCs look good. Sorry if you are too snobby to appreciate hi res FX. Some of us do however. That said b

Apachii Hair (more and more custom NPCS/followers are using it by default and may crash if not installed) Caliente Female body mod (CBEE) Caliente's Vanilla Clothing for CBBE Better Elven Armor (better recoloring) Steel Dwarven Armor (ditto elf armor) Bella's Better Females Realistic Female Face Skin HD If you are looking for eye candy followers: Girls of Skyrim (plus the patch) Also download the free hi res textures DLC from steam That covers all the basics most everyone uses, a few other suggestions: hi res road signs (easier to read road signs) player home markers (puts pla
  9. I have give-a-ways from other games when I return from PAX East. And I made some new friends of TSW devs/staff who were kind enough to give me a lot of beta keys to give out. Hence why this has to do with TSW on a WoD site Plus there is some cross over appeal.
  10. Tomorrow (4/29) at noon and 6p EST be in the chat box on the main page (with a registered site account) for a chance to win one of over 15 Beta Keys for the Secret World MMORPG which opens in beta next month! The way to win is simple, be the first to answer correctly various World of Darkness lore or/and rule questions in the chat box we will be asking and you get a key. Only one per member. This event will take place both at noon and 6p EST at wodnews.net. Good luck!
  11. Yes came out last year. Google v:tm 20th ed and you will see images, info. The ed I got was the black leather, silver gilded pages version only to those who attended the grand masquarade in NOLA last sept. There is a mass produced V20 that is not as nice currently for sale however on drive though rpg. V20 is a cleanup and tweaks to the 3rd edition rules, clans, etc plus all bloodlines and disp from suppluments. It is over 600 pages in size.
  12. Welcome to the bandwagon. I have been saying this on this forum for YEARS. Obsidian should look into lic the SR property and making a kickass CRPG. But now the founder of SR made the plunge, so too little to late at this point. Considering the finicial position of Obsidian and how poor it currently looks you'd think they would jump on one of the best selling and well known RPG franchises after D&D and V:tM.
  13. Greetings all, I am running a V:tM table top game on Sat from noon to about 5p. I have room for 2 more players if interested. This will be a cam based story. If you are interested please get in touch ASAP to get your char done up. Email me adminATwodnewsDOTnet Also will be doing video blogging on the floor mostly Fri and Sun if you want to join the staff of World of Darkness News and talk shop feel free to get in touch!
  14. There is a couple ways actually. The easiest is a console command. google it. I never played MotB and had to deal with the meter due to said command.
  15. Book itself is done for the most part, holding off printing until the spring when the new tourist season starts up. It was too late last year in the season to print it by the time I finished it.
