  1. The Nintendo Wii U is Great Thread

    I believe I read on giantbomb that the WiiU can only support one of the tablets at once, but can't find my source http://www.destructoid.com/e3-nintendo-s-new-console-is-the-wii-u-updated--203141.phtml

    So I've been having some really big problems with blizzard, and to an extent, battle.net. I've been away for the last 4/5 days, with no internet or anything. I got back today, and really wanted to play some Starcraft 2. I tried to get on, but something just wasn't clicking. I tried some shit, and I guess my password isn't right, so I begin an account recovery to be safe. I didn't get anything back for a few hours, but when I did, it turns out that my account has been hacked or something, so in their infinite wisdom, locked my ENTIRE account down. I can't even get into my account to change things at the moment, which is pretty lame. So they send me another email later on, claiming that my e-mail address has been compromised as well (Which I know it hasn't) and that everything had gone completely pete tong. I now have to make a new e-mail address (Which is annoying), think of all new EVERYTHING, and send it to blizzard via a paltry 1000 character webform, which was very hard to fit everything in. The problem was when they asked (In a legitimate blizzard email) for a picture of my photo ID, and the last 4 digits of my credit card, which I don't even have one attatched to my account, because I only play Star 2 on it. This entire ordeal has REALLY soured my experience with Blizzard. I've been playing their shit since Diablo 2 came out, and now they've just locked everything down, with no live chat, and nothing more than a webform style of interaction with them. Has anyone experienced stuff like this before, and can recommend anything else to do? I'm at my wits end here.

    I recently had to replace the touch screen on my DS, because I would use WHATEVER was around as a stylus. It was cheap (8 bucks) and relatively pain free, save for the expense of time. A previous posted commented on shoulder button cockupery, and that can be easily remedied by having a can of compressed air up in there to just blow out all the shit that's worked its way into the system. Getting a DSi is a good idea if you have the extra cash, but don't feel obliged to, because fixing a DS is relatively easy also

    They always come across as very "My first pretentious game developer wannabee"

    Was this thing optimised for anything less than a space shuttle?

    Appreciate the reply, thanks. I need to hear about if I need the spice!

    I'd love to get a hold of them should they go back up. Is there any kind of expected ETA?

    From what I'm aware, it's a play by post game with one night a week of live play. I may be wrong, however

    I've made my healery cleric type just now, a dwarf named "Gamlin Grayhammer" (Yes Dwarven alliteration) How would I go about extracting it as a text doc like you folks?
  15. Mount and Blade: Warbands

    Sorry to uproot a dead topic, but I've been playing this lately. Goddamn is it a weird game. The combat is obviously really solid, and I've been digging the hell out of this game. I'd recommend you all play it if you're into really realistic combat sims. What makes it kind of special is just the sheer open ended nature of it though. You literally have a horse, and can go anywhere you want, and do anything you want. Wanna fight off bandits, Seven Samurai style? Go for it Wanna opress villagers by stealing their cattle? That's doable. Wanna build up a small force, take over a city, take over a castle, then take over the world? That's doable. I'll leave you guys with a story that happened last night which blew my head off. So I'm on my way to an allied city to deliver a message, when I start being chased down by a set of guys. I initially thought "Oh shit" and booked it, but my paltry 5.4 speed couldn't outstrip their 7(!). So I get caught up to, and it's the Nords, who as a proud Swadian, I'm at war with. They chase me down, and it's their 60 guys against my 19. I think I MIGHT be able to take it if I'm clever. I run to a choke, and decide to make my stand there. With cavalry charging, infantry holding, and archers at the back, I think I can take it. An enemy huscarl FLIES AT ME and takes me out in one hit. I am taken prisoner. They didn't get far though with me, being caught in combat with my biggest ally. I escape as he's still in engaged, so I think it's my chance to shine. After a few steps, I figure "Actually, I'm getting in on this fight". I jumped in, adding 1 man to a 60 on 50 fight. I long range snipe and we quickly rout the enemy. Not only did I get my revenge, but I also got my troops back which had been taken prisoner, and had been with me since the start of the game. I also took one Nord prisoner, and subsequently sold him into slavery Let nobody say I am an unmerciful lord

    I apologize for being an idiot, but are we playing a 4th edition game? If so, I can ...distribute the 4E players handbook via e-mails and such.

  21. Sony Shitshow

    I'm not keen on the incredibly sensational response on the internet. People explaining where's the best place to sell your PS3, people saying they're "Going to sell their PS3s", that they're never going to buy ANY SONY products ever again. The situation sucks, but it's no different to having it stolen from any other place. It's just because it's Sony that people are getting so into this.
  22. Realningu Japaneseru

    But furthermore, imagine a non-native English person learning ENGLISH, then going on to learn a different one. You already learn such a fucked up language like ours, then go on to something like Japanese, you'd have mental brain syndrome
  23. Realningu Japaneseru

    It's not an alphabet (or series of) of letters, moreso an alphabet of syllables, or sounds. There's no strict alphabet, or one you might be used to. The problems you'll likely have is sentence structure. Whereas in English, the sentence might be: "Toblix complains in a bar, with Video Games Rodkin" The sentence in Japanese would be: "Toblix Bar in Video Games Rodkin with complains" (or something to that effect) It changes what you'd be used to, which is Sentence, Verb, Object, Japanese would be Subject Object and Verb. Especially as (From what I assume), you're already not a native English speaker (Excuse me if this is an excessively blunt observation), you might have a bit of a hard time with how convoluted with how it seems to come across. If you try hard to learn though, it's not that bad.

    I think the marriage of insane brain teasers and the charming story made UF my favourite, really.
