So I signed up for the beta for Elder Scrolls online on a whim and it got to the part where they wanted me to write down why I thought I should be a beta for them and I couldn't think of anything better than "Because I want to." so I just put in the speech Beetlejuice gives when his qualifications are put into question.

"Ah. Well... I attended Juilliard... I'm a graduate of the Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that. I've seen the EXORCIST ABOUT A HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SEVEN TIMES, AND IT KEEPS GETTING FUNNIER EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT... NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU'RE TALKING TO A DEAD GUY... NOW WHAT DO YOU THINK? You think I'm qualified?"

I don't really expect to get in.


you forgot to mention your Ph.D., your black belt in karate & the 2% body fat

That's where you should have typed "GLITTER! I throw glitter in your eyes and run away."

Dear Sam (and other MMORPG players)

What is the best "free to play" mmorpg out there, my wife would like to know. Also, what plays decently on an "old PC" (2.0 gHz Turion processor, 2 gigs of ram, Vista).

It's been a pretty good eleven years Wink

We've played MMORPG's together before, we're just broke now so she wants to find a cheaper alternative.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is fun. (And by fun I mean addicting as hell)

I just read up on it a little and apparently it's possible to make the vast majority of your encounters extra boring by accidentally locking areas to low levels. After reading through how to avoid this it turns out my normal methods of getting distracted by shinies and saving dungeons for whenever i actually have a quest there is perfect for this game.

Huzzah.

That's yet another of the many games I have to play through. Still haven't done more than the intro to a ton of games (e.g. Bastion, Limbo, mark of the ninja, the list goes on and on.)

I have however finally cranked up Spacechem (from one of the various humble bundles). I had no idea this game would be so compelling. it combines two of my high school loves: science fiction and stoichiometry!

I'm just going to interject to say that Bastion is worth a full play through.

Dat ending. Dear god.

It's very high on my list, I enjoyed it when I was playing. Just then Christmas and work and overtime and family happened, and I feel like I'd want to start again to really appreciate it.

Wrt to the thread title, I haven't played DayZ in months now. At this point i may as well wait for the standalone.

I really hope they fix all the bloody bugs when they release the standalone. Last time I played I was on a week-old character when stray shed door broke every bone in my body and left me bleeding, crippled and unconscious.

Did you save Zulf? Marching through a hail of arrows with Zulf over your shoulder while "Mother, I'm coming home" plays was heart achingly epic enough. When the Ura start kneeling and staying their weapons towards the end the onions get cut.

Yeah. And then I sat for several minutes trying to decide what to do: reset everything in the hopes that it magically turns out better next time, or fly away and make every horrible thing I'd done permanent.

Well, you don't really do anything horrible. You didn't cause the calamity. You simply defended yourself, saved some people, and got out of town.
