Thought I would throw my $0.02 in on this subject. From my perspective, priority #1 is getting GameBanshee to atleast cover costs, hopefully a bit more so Buck can pay off his debts accured from it. Although monetary gain from the site would be nice, there are some hidden perks we recieve. One you p...

One thing I noticed is that they are running UGO ad banners. UGO is an affiliate we tried to join right about the time ad. revenues plummeted. They were notorious for advertising on game related sites. Unfortunately, they are also one of the hardest hit. As a side note: The reason Ad. Revenues have ...

Hey everyone, I just wanted to point something out quick, for those concerned about payment methods. Check out this [url="http://www.flashlink.com/index.php?p=thecost"]payment link[/url] on flashlink. I'm not familiar with all of them, but the important one to note is personal check. I am not a big ...

UO2 Cancelled!

WOW! That sums it up. Like AB posted, it cannot be because they want to support the original UO. Although many still play and enjoy this game, the numbers are going down, not up. UO is still a success because of the lack of competition. When more games become available EA is going to be on a sinking...

Text based games - It seems these games also foster a better roleplaying atomosphere. If I were to label myself, I would be a powergamer/roleplayer with emphasis on powergaming. I played Gemstone III a bit and found it much easier to roleplay than UO or EQ. I think it is because with only the test d...

There is a game called Planescape: Torment

I'm not very familiar with D&D worlds though, so I couldn't tell you for sure which world it is in.

Epic weapons were not in when I quit, other than the Fiery Avenger, which we managed to obtain 3 in one day. As for getting the Epic, I would be rather surprised if anyone sub lvl 45 could do it. I don't know for a fact, it just seems that they targeted the level 50s+ for the Epics. Uber mobs have a...

@Sir Percy

No matter your original intent, your statements were not well received. They were offensive to many.

It’s not about whether or not people can take a joke; it is about how you phrase them. Yours was not phrase in a way that people took it as a joke. Sorry...

I still think the character models in those screens you listed are ugly. Yes graphics change, but UWO has a long way to go to improve than other developing games. If they start with something bad, you can expect it to improve, but how much? My statement stands, thier scenery shots are nice, thier mo...

Maurice - This is a bit old to reply to, but as I re-read it, something caught my eye. Level 29. By now you are probably atleast 30 or past it, how did you like your 1st "Hell Level"? I have to say, Hell Levels really took a large part of the fun out of EQ for me. Not that I had a very difficult tim...

A large number of the GameBanshee staff use to play EQ. Personally I found it a great game for quite sometime. However, after being well experienced in it, I found several fundamental design flaws. The one that bugs me the most is this - You can not, atleast at high levels, log in and play for a sho...

Goody topic closed

Hello all!

I apologize, but I had to close the "Goody" topic, because the e-mail reply function was spamming our mail boxes with unsendable mail.

There is a possibility that we can disable the mail send and then we can re-open the thread, but until then it will have to be closed.

The line between NWN and MMORPG is a bit fuzzy, I thought about mentioning it in my post, but left it alone. What I was really aiming at with that post is the true MMORPGs, the ones where you are on a server with 1000+ people and can meet them ingame at any point. Although 1000's of people may be pl...
