Waiting for Guild Wars 2, should I play Aion in the time being?
So I had bought Aion a while back. A bit before I knew about Guild Wars 2. And then my friend introduced me to Guild Wars 2, and I have been researching it, reading about the game, watching videos of it, learning all I can about it, basically I have low-lifed just learning about Guild Wars 2 and I can not wait for it! I know it is the PERFECT MMORPG game that will soon be released. But I have been a tad bored lately because my school does not start for a while, and sometimes I feel like I just want to relax and play some games just to pass time by besides doing my normal activities and hobbies. So I played some games that I used to play before like Maplestory and Team Fortress 2, etc… But I am beginning to miss Aion. Do you think I should go back to Aion even though I have to pay monthly, until GW2 comes out, or should I just find another game to play until then ( A free game)? And if I should play Aion, does the subscription I pay for online for a month of gameplay differ from actually buying a time card? Does a time card give me more than just a month? I heard it like actually counts by minutes and hours, if so please inform me on how this works, and where I can buy one… So thanks a lot for your help guys :]
Seeing that Guild Wars 2 probably won’t be released until Q1 or Q2 2012 (they’re in closed alpha right now, and will start closed beta before the end of the year), you still have at least several months to play other games. If you liked Aion, you can afford the monthly fee, and you have enough spare time to get your money’s worth in game time, then by all means go for it!
Alternatively, there is a wide variety of free to play MMO’s out there (such as Lord of the Rings Online, Runes of Magic, DDO Unlimited, and many more). If you don’t want (or can’t) spend the money for Aion, I recommend giving some of them a try.
As for game time cards… NCSoft sells “NCSoft Game Time Cards” for 15, 30 or 60 days, and these are essentially the same to a monthly subscription; so they don’t give you more than the specified number of (consecutive) days. They run out 13, 30 or 60 days after you added them to your account. They can be used for any NCSoft game, including Aion, though 1 card can only be used for 1 game (so you can’t split up the time on the card over multiple games). You can get them from various retailers, such as Amazon (see link below).
I hope this answers your questions.
ps3 or alienware m11x?
Im selling my xbox 360 with 5 or 6 games (most games just released). Now i can either try hard to find a stupid enough person to buy my xbox for $400 and someone else to buy my games for $200. but im not sure if that will work or not and if it does ill still have to save up $200 or ask my dad for it instead of a motor bike (long story) i could also sell my ipod touch that i dont usually use but its jailbroken so i dont know if that will make a difference in selling it but it would also take even more time to sell my ipod, or i could take my xbox 360 with its two controllers a mic and text pad and games including, singularity, crackdown 2, crackdown 1, toy story 3, and gears of war 2 and get a ps3 with a couple of games (there’s a sale going on with all video games at gamestop). so ‘ve been thinking about this non-stop for days now and its driving me crazy, i dont want a “it all depends on what you like” answer because that wont help i just need some help, and be reasonable like if you think ill actually be able to get that $200 soon or if its worth the wait, so with moving in a couple of days and this hard decision i just need told what to do. hope you help me out, thanks!
Ps3, its a cheaper and safer buy. If you buy the laptop by the end of the year there will be games that your pc wont support and since its a laptop you wont be able to upgrade the video card on it. Besides, almost every game thats on pc is on the ps3, only like 1/10 games arent for consoles and only for pc. If you get the pc the only exclusive games you will get are like rpg games like world of warcraft which i dont like at all. The ps3 wil save you money and you wont have to be worrying about your specs.
Is the Wii losing its momentum?
I just read an on-line article saying that the Wii is losing its ground in the battle for best system.
“The PS3 is gaining good ground on the hot selling Wii console in Japan, according to Enterbain, the Wii outsold the PS3 by a ratio of just 4 to 1 in July. We say ‘just’ because during June the ratio was 6 to 1 in favor of the Wii.”
Looks like Japan is starting to see clearly. And soon, the rest of the world. And the PS3 is just getting starting. Wait until more games start being released.
Yes, people were first enticed by its cheap price and motion sensing. Thus far it has been mostly gimmicky, but only time will tell if it becomes much more than just that. The PS3 is now starting to release an onslaught of great games and so it’s gaining momentum fast as well. The 360 is a complete flop in Japan, nothing can be argued there. I don’t expect the PS3 to overtake the Wii anytime soon, but as for the 360, it will have overtaken that by next year. I would say this year, but the massive Halo hype will keep it just ahead of the PS3. The Wii does have the potential to be a second system for more than the “hardcore” and so its future is less certain. So yes, the Wii is losing momentum, but the real questionis if it will continue on this path or pick back up again.
game to movie adaptation which succeeded and which is the best?
ok guys there have been a couple of game to movie adaptation but which have been the best?
and purely as a good movie??
now i no mortal kombat was the highest grossing game to movie adaptation till tomb raider……but is tomb raider still the highest
i think it made like 250 million
while resident evil made about 100 million
even though tomb raider made more money though on sites like imdb and wikipedia there is more info there (including activity on forums) that suggest resident evil was better.this has nothing to do with resident evil being released later so more people are interested in it as the last forum post on imdb was long ago when the last post on re was not so long ago.
anyone know any facts???
for example resident evil is the 1st game to movie thats spawned a trilogy and soon to be quad trilogy
mortal kombat was the highest grossing game to movie adaptation until tomb raider
and whats your opinion???? (feel free to talk about mario bros etc)
also does anyone know any soon to be video game to movie adaptations. i know that silent hill 2 is on its way
by the way does anyone know whats going on with the 3rd tomb raider movie ?
and also can you click this link ad sign the petition if you want its to do with resident evil 4 http://www.gopetition.com/online/24103.html
Tomb Raider is still considered to be the one and only successful game to movie adaptation and earned the most money. Mortal Kombat made a lot of money but was considered a box office disaster. The only reason most game-movie adaptations fail is because of the games’s fans who expect too much of the movie. Doom was considered a flop with only $55 million and fans rejected it because it diverted greatly from the idea of opening a portal to hell and creating a more realistic concept of a science experiment gone wrong.
I loved the adaptations of Doom, Hitman and many other game-movies but all of them have been considered flops with Tomb Raider being the only successful adaptation, however the second Tomb Raider was considered a flop.
I know of The Sims being turned into a movie. Based on the story line of a woman moving into a neighbourhood and later discovering she’s a character in a video game played by real people is just terrible and I know it will flop.
The claymotion game The Neverhood is being adapted, but still going to be done in claymotion so I believe it will be somewhat successful and popular to anyone who played the game but whether or not it attracts the interest of others I’m not sure.
Metal Gear Solid is rumoured and I believe that would make a fantastic movie.
Doom 2 is rumoured to be based on DVD sales of the first movie, or as an adaptation to the upcoming Doom 4 game.
Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune is slated for a movie as well as Kane & Lynch: Dead Men. Both I believe would be very successful movie adaptations as the story lines in the games flow perfectly into a movie whereas trying to construct a movie plot out of a FPS like Doom is precarious with fans.
Halo would make a fantastic movie adaptation, but has been in development hell since 2005 and a script has yet to be chosen.
There are dozens more but in the end it comes down to the fact that fans make the ultimate choice of whether or not the movie is anything like they expect from the game and so far Tomb Raider is the one and only success. Resident Evil did well but even though it spawned a quadrilogy, each successive movie did worse in the box office than its predecessor. The film studios decided however that it could still be a profitable franchise. Despite the failure of Tomb Raider 2, the company still say that they may continue with Tomb Raider 3 in the near future.
Need help with a game name?
Right now I;m working on a game I need a name for. I wanted to name it Revenant Dreams, but those r both nouns and it doesn’t make sense. Is there an adjective form of the word Revenant? Or another word that means the same thing? I’d rather not use like “Dreams of a Revenant”.
And by the way, if anyone is interested, drop me a message saying so, and when I put out updates I could message/email you or something. I’ll be releasing a preview video soon, within probably the next month. I can’t release any information on the game except it is a 2D survival horror platformer that is based around the concept of a “relam/world” between the life in Earth and Hell (kinda like Silent Hill’s nightmare world)
Actually thinking about it now it IS possible to use a noun as an adjective (such as Cat Dreams, in that case the noun “Cat” could be viewed as a n adjective, so I guess I’ll stick with Revenant Dreams because I do like it a lot.
I’ll keep this question open for anyone else who wants to recurve updates on this game, such s you Barbabop (thanks btw).
Well, I think “Revenant Dreams” would work… But that’s beside the point. Maybe “Chimerical Dreams”?
Definition of chimerical: existing only as the product of unchecked imagination : fantastically visionary or improbable
I’m also very interested in how this game will turn out, keep me informed at email@example.com. I’ll also send you a message. Thanks!
