I miss playing Guild Wars

You have to download gigabytes of patches on guild wars factions. I’d do it, but then I have that low ping to worry about. I get my all my monsters destroyed by someone else. I used it to talk to random people from all over the world. The game was better than World of Warcraft. Guild Wars was my 4th and latest foray into MMORPGs behind Diablo (1999), Diablo 2 (2000 – 2004) and Neverwinter Nights (2002-2003). I truly missed was GW’s ability to travel instantly to any unlocked town on the map – this made it very easy to gather up guildies for a run at a particular mission. With 2 continents and long flight times (which can be costly), this becomes considerably more difficult in WoW.

PRO:
Skill sets are balanced for each class combo
Great team PVP matches
Excellent graphics. Don’t need an ultra-powerful card to run the game at high graphics settings
Most items do not cost alot
No monthly fee
Max armor/weapons items are easily obtained
Certain Max rare items easily obtainable (green items)
“Expansion” games can be bought/used as standalone or merged to an existing account.
You can play “single” player with henchmen or join/form a group.
Very challenging missions at high level

CONS:
Rare items sold by players to merchants can’t be bought back by anyone.
Level cap is 20 (could be PRO)
People in towns selling rare items at overinflated prices
Character’s mouths don’t move in cutscenes.
Henchmen sometimes do stupid stuff.

. You buy Guild Wars to instantly partake of action, to skip the running from city to city. To play a game, not live a life. Now, let’s take a deeper look at WoW. It is meant to be a place to live. It’s an alternate world for you to exist in and live an entire alternate life. What little Guild Wars doesn’t have, you save $1000s of dollars on Guild Wars.

I was playing all the offline games to care at all!

Bought 3DS today

I bought a 3DS at Wal-mart at 8 AM today. Thinking it won’t matter about the price point, because it’ll be this this expensive this time next year.

I bought the only 8.0 out of 10 game out there!

I know when I saw the first screenshots of the RPG Beyond the Labyrinth, I knew I had to use that $100 gift certificate from Easter (as a present) for a 3DS. So I bought one. Beyond the Layrinth looks like a great RPG and I knew I could collect 22 8.0 out of 10 DS games in 6 years. That is more than my 17 PSP games. While at wal-mart, I noticed Crysis 2 was also overpriced at $60 (normally PC games are $50). I couldn’t resist, I had to buy Crysis 2 also. The original Crysis was the main reason I upgraded to a Geforce 8800 GTX in 2006. I have a Radeon HD 5970 so I had to buy at least one game that was DirectX 11 before DirectX 11.1 comes out. I am quietly waiting for Unreal Engine 4 to come out that requires DirectX 11 in 2013 (long way off). Although it may not be as aweesome as it use to be in 2004 with Unreal Tournament 2004, Unreal Tournament 4 may be worth it for people in their twenties. I may be getting old.

There isn’t much out there that I want, Sturgeon’s Law says 90% out there is crap. 3DS and Crysis 2 looked like top 10% that wasn’t the 90% that was no good.

I also want the super mario 3DS and Mario Kart 3DS.

new N3DS

Good choice Oprah!

I know Oprah voted for a half-black president, because she’s liberal and he’s marxist. She’s even been to the Soviet Union! Now nobody has to see her corrupted persona in 2012, and all for the better! I never did watch her and I knew she dupe people. It’s amazing how many people Oprah duped with her power (100 million+). Oprah is no better than far-left billionaire George Soros. Oprah has mastered the art of the Frankfurt School on liberal networks.

I still don’t know why conservative people were stupid enough to defend her after she supported the regime.

Romney for 2012

Thrump is not going to win and neither is Mike Huckabee (who is soft).

Republicans need Mitt Romney, Governor of Massachusetts. He may have Romneycare, but he is a winner.

55% of us Male conservative voters.

32% of Democrats say they’re moderates and 24% conservative. That’s why they should be Reagan Democrats in 2012. Ron Paul is also great, because we don’t need to be in war, and he has been constitutional for 20 years (texas is always doing well). I’m afraid Ron Paul won’t win, because he is too smart. I don’t like Libya and I agree with him that the our marxist democratic party will print bills until the dollar crashes. Democrats want a planned economy/directive planning/state-capitalist economies.
