    At this point, I can't tell if it's trolling/counter-trolling or if it's co-dependency... :confused:

    Entertaining, nonetheless.

    I got a lot of mileage out of Skyrim without mods (and as far as I know it's popular on Xbox and PS3, which can't be modded), but it really is a matter of taste. Skyrim and Oblivion both offered...

    * blink *

    I just had a vision of the Silmarillion presented Heavy Metal style - a vision both intriguing and horrifying. :eek:

    My only interest in Mists of Pandaria is that I'm so uninterested that I find my complete lack of interest interesting.
  7. Re: What did you play in the 70s and 80s before MMos and all those computer games?

    In the '80s, it was GURPS on Thursdays, D&D on Sundays, with the occasional Avalon Hill style board game (Civilization (nothing to do with Sid Meiers), Diplomacy, Wooden Ships and Iron Men, a few...
  8. Re: Why hadn't the dwarfs and elves, help fight at the Pelennor Fields, Black gate?

    It is (or was), but Tolkien used "dwarves" for reasons of his own (a quick blurb of which you can read here). Since then, however, "dwarves" has apparently become as accepted and as official as...

    Re: Skyrim

    Monetarily, it'll probably be a huge success, at least at launch. Both the franchise and the studio have a ready-made fan following (think pre-WoW Blizzard and pre-SWTOR Bioware).

    But, yeah,...

    My first reaction to seeing Skyrim gameplay footage was to think it'd make a great MMO, but I think Todd Howard's instincts were right on this. "Elder Scrolls" stands to lose a lot in translation. ...

    The Citizens Advice Bureau is good advice, but if I'm reading NothingToSay right, I agree with his basic message. Start looking for a new job, but, until you get it, put on your best game face. And...

    Re: Need help creating story for a captain

    That's actually a pretty good story, IMO - though assuming your Captain arrived at Rivendell, you might need to explain why he'd continue on to Bree, since he'd doubtless find Bilbo there safe and...

    Re: Gender?

    Across all the MMOs I play or have played, about half my characters are female. As for other people, it usually comes down to concept, but I will admit it sometimes has to do with appearance. Not...

  18. Re: Avoiding Eurocentrism in the non-human races (and fixing Tom Bombadil's skin colo

    I'd amend that to "If you want to play a dark-skinned Elf, try another game." You can certainly play dark-skinned characters already.

    Interestingly, if the OP had simply made a request for a...
  19. Re: Avoiding Eurocentrism in the non-human races (and fixing Tom Bombadil's skin colo

    It's not the 'spirit' of Middle-Earth - it's part of what Middle-Earth is. Once again, playing an Elf with African or Asian features would be as incongruous as a Chinese hero with blonde hair.

    Maybe I misunderstand - are you arguing that, because the lore is already broken, we should break it further to accomodate your "modern sensibilities?"

    Ok, sure, let's do it. But if we're aiming...
  21. Re: Avoiding Eurocentrism in the non-human races (and fixing Tom Bombadil's skin colo

    No, we can't agree. The combat-centered women in Tolkien's works were of substantial importance - so much so that to disallow female champions, captains, guardians and wardens would have been quite...
  22. Re: Avoiding Eurocentrism in the non-human races (and fixing Tom Bombadil's skin colo

    1. As has been pointed out to you, Tolkien's own writings have clear examples of combat-centric females. The same cannot be said of dark-skinned Elves or Asiatic hobbits.

    2. Nope.

    3. Nope....
