World of Warcraft: Warsong Gulch [Oct. 19th, 2009|11:39 am]
So, I have been playing Warsong Gulch lately because of the whole 'Holiday' thing. Been playing with my now 79 Hunter (Horde). And... I'm finding it difficult to help win games, either because there are no strategies being suggested and everyone's running around doing their own thing, or because good strategies (in my opinion) are being ignored in favor of ones that are outrageous and not getting a damn thing done. This is very irritating...

So I would like to see if anyone here has suggestions for possible strategies in Warsong Gulch. The one I favor is:

2 camping at our base.
4-5, preferably with a healer included, going after the flag.
Rest around midfield since more often than not that is where flag carrier needs the most help while en route. It also puts then in good range if our base needs help and/or to get their flag carrier en route.

Does that make sense? Any better suggestions?

So. About that Thar DSi... [Apr. 12th, 2009|12:22 pm]

[Music |Don't Trust Me -- 3OH!3]

I just bought one yesterday, and have 2 picked out (if Pokemans [the catch em ones. IDK] count as one. XD) and the japanese teach-y language one.

Um. What are some other good DS games? I am about to try to get at least one soon, and I'd like to know what to avoid and what is a must

I've been playing UT2K4 for a long time and I'm really good, but I can't wall run for crap. I know how, as in what buttons to do it with, and I've done it before, but I usually just run myself into the wall or end up dodging off of it. Any tips?

Lego Batman Dilemma [Feb. 11th, 2009|11:04 pm]

I've almost completed Lego Batman on the PS2, and I've run into a problem. I'm at something like 98.4% completion, and all I have left to do is complete the Super Hero Bonus Level (SHBL) one time in order to get 100% and unlock the one character and rest of the data I haven't unlocked yet. It seems I may have run into a glitch, though, and I'm wondering if anybody else has run into. If you've specifically played on the PS2, that would probably help me even more.

In the SHBL in the side-scroller part, there's a section of the side-scroller where there are five orange blocks moving up and down, and above each of these moving blocks is a brown block that you're supposed to be able to bust just by jumping it underneath like you would on Super Mario. According to the walkthrough I just looked at, all five brown blocks are supposed to break, but for me the 2nd to last one does not break. I've done everything else in the SHBL and have come up 1 purple stud short of 1 million studs. This brown block is the only thing that could have that 1 purple stud.

Has anybody else run into this problem? I'll probably try again tomorrow to see if resetting the system helps at all, but if it doesn't I'm wondering if I'll have to resign myself to not getting 100% completion and not unlocking the rest of the unlockables.

Thanks in advance!

Hello There [Jun. 30th, 2008|12:11 am]
Hey everyone! My name is Erika. Yeah. Hmm....

Yes...well, I usually play console games, a magical mix of games you can just pick up and go and rpgs. I'm mostly a nintendo kind of girl, but n64 and up. I recently played an snes and I kind of sucked at it. Yeah...but my favorites are Starfox64, any Super Smash Bros game, Dance Dance Revolution, Kingdom Hearts, Metal Gear series, and any fps or platformers when they aren't all blah blah brunette angsty guy on mysterious planet. I'm also glued to my DS, Animal Crossing to be exact; the game cube version is more vast in my opinion but it's nice to have a handy version.

But yeah, I really love DDR. I've been playing for 3 years now and I think it may be my favorite game of all time! It's sad that I don't see many girls playing it, because most of the guys that do have extremely crazy ego problems!

Oh, and I love Sonic. Any Sonic; 2d, 3d, doesn't matter. Kind of an obsession.

I see a lot of girls here play WoW and other mmorpgs, and I've tried them but I just don't have the attention span...and all the little kids. I think that's the most annoying part. Anyone have any suggestions for not annoying ones? I've heard Travian is fun but pretty slow when you first start.

So, opening questions, other than The World Ends With You and whatever Phoenix Wright qualifies as, any good rpgs for the DS? My fellow girl gamer friend is playing Lost in Blue 2, but I want to know if it's worth it to hunt down the first one...

Hello, I'm Kris and I'm relatively new to this community but not to being a gamer.

I noticed there's a lot of ladies who enjoy MMORPGs here, but unfortunately, I'm not one of them so I'm hoping you guys can still help me out. I'm pretty open to most genres but I like a lot of turn-based RPGs and platform games the most, and I love both Nintendo and Playstation games.

I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for me? I'm always looking for a new game to play.

Also, I'm curious how many of you have heard of the game Legend of Dragoon. It's always been one of my favorites but it isn't very popular and I'm always on the lookout for fellow fans.

Help a poor, lost soul out [Jun. 17th, 2008|04:04 am]

[Mood | hopeful]

So, I completely suck at console games and barely has any clue when it comes to its games. I'm usually a PC/tabletop girl but I got me a shiny new PS2 and I need something to play since I'm almost done with Resident Evil 4 now.

Mostly, I'm looking for car games, horror games and/or RPG's of the Baldur's Gate type. But really anything you think is great and feel needs to be played is much appriciated.

Personal Best [Jun. 15th, 2008|11:20 pm]

[Mood | accomplished]

Hi everyone :) I know that not everyone here plays WoW, and that some of you who do are likely way past me in progression, but I wanted to share my 'personal best' in raiding with people who can understand my excitement :D

This week... tonight... my Karazhan team had our first full clear. Screenshot! (I'm the one with the Voidheart Helm, aka Blue Swirliness of Doom)

I'm so happy right now!!

Feel free to fawn and congratulate me ;) But also to share your own personal bests in WoW and other games :D

Update [Jun. 12th, 2008|06:31 am]
[Mood | busy]

I will be going offline for quite some time, but I didn't want to leave the asylum hanging. In my absence, [info]xo_tara_xo will be in charge of moderating the asylum. She has been part of my co-mod team for quite some time. Give her a big welcome.

Also, keep those gaming posts coming. It's interesting to see other people discuss games and gaming issues, points of view, et cetera. If any problems arise, please let any of my mods know.

Anyhoo, I wish all of you a pleasant summer, and I will see you when I return.

Ok. Ok. I have a HUGE pet peeve on MMORPGs. Like LastChaos, and DoMo, but I suppose WoW is included. i've never played WoW. shock, I know.

Have you ever been running by a group of other players, but you see SO MANY GOLD AND WEAPONS/objects that are LYING there, especially if you KNOW you can get a lot of gold/money from them?

UGh. I get so pissed off! and they LEAVE it there. Maybe I am a pack-rat (although I do sell the stuff that I don't need if I can.) when it comes to gold and stuff, but I don't see the point in leaving money that you'll need to upgrade to a better weapon and armour! It just doesn't make any sense to me. :/

Does it bother you guys, or is it just me?

This girl I know made a video about girl gamers and I thought it'd be cool and whatnot, but imo she made girl gamers look like whiny little girls who deserve to get made fun of. It angered me a little bit. I know she was trying to make a point but I don't think she did it very well so I thought I'd see what you guys think.

Post WoW and Pirates Online [May. 31st, 2008|03:49 pm]
[Mood | apathetic]

It's been a while since anything has been posted here, so I figured I'd post something game-related.

As I stated months ago, I did indeed quit WoW for who knows long. I had a huge falling out with someone I used to consider a friend. He would constantly harass me on all my toons, and of course, the 'wonderful' (yeah right) customer service department did nothing, so I deleted all my lower leveled toons, left the server and moved to another one. The guild I was in was full of great people, but after that experience, I decided to stop my subscription. Meh, oh well. Even though my priest was level 70, I wasn't really able to progress like I wanted to.

Anyway, I've been trying out Pirates of the Caribbean Online. I wouldn't really recommend it. The graphics are subpar, the lag is horrible, and the quests are the usual 'fetch this and that and blah blah blah' over and over. The weapons are okay, but it's definitely not worth 9.99 a month. I chose to subscribe for the first month for 4.95, but I'm going to cancel my subscription when it comes time to renew it. If you play a free account, you're really limited as to what you can do, what weapons you can have and whatnot. The other gripe I have is you have to call an 800 number to cancel your subscription. At least with WoW, you could do it online.

Has anyone else tried out this game? What was your experience like?

Anyhoo, I think I'm finished with MMORPGs for a very, very long time. They're just not my thing anymore.

WoW Framerate Problems. [Apr. 25th, 2008|01:09 pm]

Greetings all, I'm SkySong, and I come seeking guidance.

I play WoW. I play a lot of WoW. But I'm having difficulty with my framerate, which seems to vary depending solely on how my computer is feeling about me day to day, but typically runs in the 4-8 range (even when feeling friendly). This has prevented me from doing a number of things as I reach higher levels - such as maybe joining a guild or attempting that PVP thing - because I'll often find myself lagging two to four seconds behind everyone else. This also makes traveling, anywhere take twice as long as it needs to be. I run WoW off a laptop (with the aid of an external harddrive), but this has never posed a problem for me in the past and I do not believe it is the problem now. This has been occurring long before the new patch, and I don't have any UI's installed.

I've tried numerous things. I have defraged. I have closed all but the most vital background programs. I've run all sorts of system cleans and removed a lot of old programs I didn't realize I still had and long ago ceased using. I do not want to reformat (though I probably should anyway) because everything else works just fine.

I'm hoping there is something I have overlooked or simply not been able to find in my own research on the topic, and any adivce would be welcome.

Ohhhhhh SMAP. *dorksout* People, they are translating Summon Night: Twin Age for the DS and it's set for release come May 20th. Pretty damn soon, which is what I'd like to hear! The story line is as quirky as ever, and so are the characters.

It's Been Awhile... [Mar. 18th, 2008|05:06 pm]
Due to the Garona server being down for hours now, I thought I'd post some WoW-related stuff. Enjoy the lulz.

I love the dancing video, except they left out trolls, undead and the female human and Draenei female dances. Oh well. It's still hilarious.

When Gaming Isn't Fun Anymore, Part II [Feb. 10th, 2008|07:22 pm]
[Location |Home Sweet Hell]
[Mood | cold]

Well, I decided at the end of the month, I am suspending my WoW account while I go on hiatus. If and when I do decide to return, I am moving to another server. A friend suggested Skywall, so I will look into it at a later date. I may suspend after the Valentine's Day content, and to say goodbye to some of the friends I made. I still have one last gift to give to a dear friend before I depart. So, for the next 4 days, I will be farming like a mad woman for Peddlefeet, but not for me - for my sweetie who I have grown to adore and will miss.

I want to personally thank you all for your comments on my previous post. I'm glad I am not the only one who has experienced burnout. It sounds silly, but at least suspending my account will save me fifteen dollars a month. I guess I'm to the point where fifteen bucks isn't worth the stress and crap on WoW.
