  1. "Soft" release. Would much rather them delay as needed to a solid hard release which is advertised to the market.
  2. Great episode! much looking forward to:
  3. I'm proud to admit I have spent $0 on spaceships.jpg. I thought the most recent Thursday playtest seemed fine, population wise. I think the standard 9-5 work schedule conflicting with recent test times is the primary culprit here.
  4. Personally I'm missing >50% of the tests this month due to the testing times. Weekday mid mornings-afternoons are a no go due to work. Weekends are free EXCEPT Sundays from 9-10 PM where I join several million other folks in watching an HBO show. They also recently had some US East testing start at 10pm EST, which isn't viable either. (Again, work in morning) I think there's more than a few people in the same boat as me.
  5. Shadowbane: Nothing beat the open world PvP that this game had, it was exciting, it was dangerous, it was fun. I thought MMO's after Shadowbane would follow in the footsteps of open world PvP, that Shadowbane would blaze a glorious trail for the MMO industry. It's as if there was a fork in the road in the early 2000's, with open world / sandbox / PvP games like Shadowbane down one end, and WoW down another. The MMO industry chose poorly. Auto Assault: Cool cars, good music, good combat! (bad MMO) WoW TBC: Level 59 twink Holy Shock Paladin I trash this game, but Alterac Valley could be fun when half the Alliance was sitting in my consecrate,
  6. I like the fact that they are choosing to delay and make a better product and I really liked Blair's post on combat. The "soft launch" makes me cringe a little bit, I am concerned that will broadcast "Steam early access!" to a lot of potential players. I would rather delay beta until a hard launch - but we will see how it goes! Most important question: Will this affect Blair's hair and how many extra haircuts will he require prior to launch?
  7. You know how they say taste and sound can be strongly linked to memory? This brought me back! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mlkhn0YhUO4
  8. This is exactly why NDA's exist, people on this forum get that it's pre-alpha, but many others *WILL* judge a book by it's pre-alpha trailer cover. Their money is worth the same as ours, even if their opinions aren't.
  9. Carved in the post next to Jon. But aside from that, Lyanna has been mentioned far too often and recently to be anything but very meaningful. There was an episode last season where Littlefinger and Sansa spend a good 5 minutes talking about her. If you you really want confirmation, read Ned's first few POV's from Book 1. It's so glaring once you look for it.
  10. You may yet, Cool. "The dragon has three heads" is a prophecy oft repeated - while I don't think Tyrion is a Targ, I *DO* think he will be riding one of them. (There were previous dragon riders in Westeros who were not Targs) IMO, the three heads represent the three dragons and their riders, the figurative "heads" of Danerys' forces against the Others. Dany, Tyrion, and Jon.
  11. Book is book. Show is show. Do not cross the streams, and you will enjoy both more!
  12. Makes sense, and I'm glad you guys do it that way - maximizes the fun! Exception is the test schedule for Sunday the 1st being online from 9-10pm EST. That makes no sense to me!
  13. (Book Spoilers) It's an interesting theory; There's definitely some some basis based on hints dropped about Aerys' relationship with Tywin and his wife when he was Hand. There's also a history of Targs being born with deformities. In the end, I like it better if Tyrion really is Tywin's son. Having him be a Targ would take away a lot of the tragedy to the relationship of Tyrion / Tywin / Jamie - and the events at the end of book 3. It's more poetic that Tyrion, who actually shares the most with Tywin of all the Lannister children, is the one who he disowns, the one to kill him, and the one to carry on the family name and legacy. (I don't think Jamie survives the Stoneheart encounter) Tyrion's aunt said it best: "Jaime, sweetling, I have known you since you were a babe at Joanna's breast. You smile like Gerion and fight like Tyg and there's some of Kevan in you, else you would not wear that cloak...but Tyrion is Tywin's son, not you. I said so once to your father's face, and he would not speak to me for half a year."
