When Star Wars Galaxies expanded by adding in star ships The Wet Bandits members decided it was time to break faces. We couldn’t really afford a good ship so we bought the crappiest one we could find. Naturally, we decided to plunder someone’s expensive ship. Some innocent fool’s ship. We found one, on the planet of Tatoonie. He was selling transport on his very expensive taxi ship by screaming in the global chat. I private messaged him and the conversation went something like this:
Me: “Good sir, we need your services. We are apart of a major guild on this server and have some high bounties on our heads from some Imperial scum. May you provide refuge on your unmarked ship to hold our guild meeting?”
Foolish Guy: ”Why yes! We are an expensive taxi service of sorts. It will cost (x) millions of credits. Would you fine gents like expensive foods and entertainment for this evening on my taxi?”
Me: “Yes, indeed. We require classical music and your finest of foods. We will pay you 5% on top of the value for the food, transport, and entertainment after you’ve provided us safe travel and allow us to hold our guild meeting on your ship. An extra couple thousand credits if you keep shut thy mouth about anything we talk about.”
Have you been following the disaster of a release that is SimCity? If so, you might appreciate this trailer I made for kicks. Maxis, go home. You’re drunk.
Grim Fandango is one of my favorite games and as a way to replay the game, I’m inviting anyone interesting to join me in an Endurance Run. Hopefully I can get through the entire adventure in one sitting. This will be on Friday the 15th around 2:00 PM EST so mark your calendars. More details will be provided soon with an official link to begin watching an hour before. See you there!
AGD Interactive makes and remakes graphic adventure games that were gold to the Sierra company back in the 90s. Their first release was the remake of Roberta Williams’ King’s Quest. Unlike most of LucasArts’ adventures, Sierra’s adventures held consequences for misusing items or being in the wrong place at the wrong time. This game was remade for fans of adventure games or fans of early gaming nostalgia.
In Quest for Glory II, you’re in the land of Shapeir and now the hero throughout the land. The city is threatened by four evil elements and it’s your job to defend it since you’re the hero and all. Oh, and Shapeir’s neighboring city’s Emir Arus al-Din is missing and you’ll need to help him too. It’s a load of fictional fun and graphic adventure goodness!
With the announcement of Pokémon X/Y coming to the 3DS in October, Pokémon is on people’s lips again. It’s 3D graphics, new generation of Pokémon and possibly co-op (unconfirmed, but I dream big) is a huge upgrade from the previous games. It’s what I wanted Pokémon Stadium to be: a 3D adventure Pokémon game. If you’re a Pokéfan like myself, you may also be excited to see the indie game called Pokémon3D that’s free to download from the indie scene. It’s essentially a rebuilt version of Pokémon Gold/Silver but it’s played in a 3D universe and in first person if you choose. I only discovered this after noticing the latest games update list from Xfire.
How does one obtain this gem? Simply download the client file from their Indie DB page. Don’t worry, it’s all legit. The game client is pretty well designed too and looks much like Minecraft‘s updater. Patches are automatically done with a click of a button.
