    EVE: Online

    I'd love to play Diablo 3, but I think it would have to be on my PS3. My craptop can't handle newer games. And thanks for the reply, Gogo. I just had to take the time to write about Eve. It's too much fun to go unadvertised. I only wish I had started playing it in 2003, so I would have a real badass character now. Also, I forgot to mention that the whole market in Eve is player controlled. Everything you see in the market is put there by another player. Corporations mine, refine, manufacture and put items for sale to gain money and control. There is also a uncharted cluster of star systems at the northeastern corner of the star-map. This is said to be the home of the mysterious, technically superior and insidious Jovian race. They are NPC only, except to a selected few. This suggests that some players have been invited to the Jovian empire. Perhaps one day, they will break out of isolation and start a war against the rest of the known universe. Feuding corporations and alliances would have to combine their forces to fight the invaders. Wouldn't that be awesome?
  2. My addictions are collecting DVD's, music CD's (mainly heavy metal), playing and collecting videogames (I have about 60 for PS3) and eating good food while watching a good sci-fi/action flick. I recently bought all 5 seasons of Babylon 5. It cost me about 50 punds.

    EVE: Online

    I just started playing EVE: Online a couple of months back, and I love it. The game utilizes only one HUGE server which sometimes holds over 50000 players in one big universe. It's a sci-fi game focusing mainly on the control of spaceships, and learning the skills to further your use of them. When you start, you will be in your capsule. This capsule is your only armor against the cold vacuum of space. Quite soon into the game though, you will be handed several spaceships to put your capsule inside and control. If they are destroyed, you will find yourself again in the capsule, and then you have to get out of there. When the capsule is destroyed, you will die. There are 4 different races in the game: The Amarr, who uses lasers for the main arsenal, Minmatar, who uses projectile weapons, The Caldari, who uses Missile launchers, and the Gallente, who focuses mainly in the use of hybrid turrets. There are alot of different space ships with different functions in EVE. For example: - The Rookie ship is the first one you get when starting to play. Not much good for anything besides scouting an area. - Frigates are the main light class attack ships in the game. Some can also be used for mining. - Destroyers are fast, medium sized ships especially designed to hunt down frigates. - Crusiers are rather slow, heavily armored ships used mainly as support and escorting. - Battlecruisers are the same as above, only more badass. - Battleships are heavy ships made to make total mincemeat of your enemy, often used for prolonged sieges. - Industrial ships can involve haulers (cargo ships), mining barges made only for extracting ore from asteroids at a high rate, and salvagers, made for salvaging resources from shipwercks in space. - Capital ships. These include freighers, drones carriers and titans. The biggest of the big. They also vary greatly in size. The smallest ship is about 60 meters long. The biggest class are Titan ships. Two of them can reach 18 km in length. All of them takes alot of training time, and the training is real-time. If I want to train in the use of a mining barge to level 5 (max level), it would take at least 15 days. To train for the use of titan ships, you would have to train skills for 170 real days. That being said, one of the main goals in EVE is to make money. Either by: - Mining asteroids for ore, which can be sold directly, refined into minerals, or be used to create spaceships and equipment. - Salvaging blown-up spaceships for resources, which can be used as the same as above. - Doing missions given to you by NPC agents in the spacestations. - Joining a player Corporation (clan) and work for them for rewards. - Become a pirate and shoot down spaceships for the loot. The game is one of the most immense experiences one can have with a mmorpg. While not as big player-wise as WoW, this game has only 1 big universe where all the players play side by side. It has over 5000 star systems you can visist. A star system is a room in space where you can find asteroid belts and space stations. It also has 2500 random placed wormholes where you can find some real valuable minerals, but also danger. I'll try not to make this post too long, but it's simply impossible to describe EVE in short words. You can download the game with a 14-day trial if you wish to try it out for yourself. If you like sci-fi, you will NOT regret trying this game.

    Borderlands

    I loved the first Borderlands. I'm waiting for number 2 now. My favourite class in the first game is the soldier. So much fun carrying machineguns that fire extremely fast at your enemies, while your friends desperately try to hit them before they are annihilated by your relentless bullet rain.

    All time scary films?

    Podgie, could you post your favourites from the Quake 1 soundtrack in my video game music thread? I'd love to hear some of them, as I've never played Quake 1.

    Dogs

    Beautiful dogs, Chattius. I've always like the German Shepherd. If I ever get a dog, it would be one of those. I've heard that it takes alot of time and discipline to train one, and I don't want to get one before I am prepared to sacrifice alot of my time to it.
  7. Long time no see. Just wanted to post some music from Emperor: Battle for Dune. I've been listening to this a lot lately. Tell me what you think. Of all the 3 houses (teams) you can be in the game, these guys resort to cloning soldiers, and are the most technically advanced, with laser tanks and gas turrets. Their tactics includes infiltraion, sabotage and secrecy instead of massive assaults. They are cold, calculating and merciless. Composed by Jarrid Mendelson.
  8. 2012 is overrated. Looks SO much like 2011.

    The Thing 2011 !

    I haven't seen it yet, but I've read a review. It said that the movie rushed to reveal the full monster where the old one would conceal it almost completely in darkness and smart camera angles. After all, it's an alien monster that have to remain hidden until it has cleared the way of most of it's threats. Also I've heard that it relies on CGI for the most part, which I really don't think is necessary. Movie makers have been using models for as long as there has been filming going on, and CGI should be used only to add atmospheric details such as fog, smoke and ligthing. Way too many movies these days are too lazy in terms of special effects. Still, I'm sure I'm going to buy it when it comes on Blu-ray.
  11. Feel the synth engulf your mind and your body.. it's time for Laserdance!
  12. Can't stop listening to this Japanese guy. Anyone else liking this kind of music? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGtKxbu7vLI
  13. I think google just killed this whole thread. Just try dragging any of the photos into the google search bar, and 90 % of the time it will come up with the correct answer. Especially if the images are from google. If you take them from your own DVD, it may have some trouble finding the answer, but it makes the process of posting a whole lot harder. Screw you google!
