All About Brainpr0n
5Sep 06I should be up to my neck in new games by now and it seems that everything is being delayed. I am going to have to sell a kidney in Q1-07 to pay for them all unless some of the games get delayed again.
The FPS gaming pool seems to be getting muddier and muddier. Game after game gets released and the games I like get fewer and fewer players. I get up in the morning and there are only a few hundred people playing any of the games I am playing right now. CS of course has plenty of players, but for some reason I can't play that game for very long. I guess I just get killed too soon and then get tired of waiting for a new round... so I can get killed... again.
Even a bad to the bone game like F.E.A.R. with Combat thats now free, only had a scant 150 people on in this AM and good luck finding a populated slo-mo server then. Whats a gamer to do when a game of F.E.A.R.s caliber can't get full servers even when its free...
I'm still playing Oblivion quite a bit but if its not that, its Halo thats been keeping me coming back. Actually its the Warthog that keeps me coming back. Its still my favorite ride evar and Race is just about the most MP gaming fun I have nowadays.
Well thats enough rambling for today I guess.
Since in Oblivion I am roleplaying my oldest and mostest favorite character from AD&D, I figured at some point he would run across a wish. Back in the day when I used to DM the paper and pencil game, I loved wishes. I didn't give them out very often, but I did give them out to characters that I felt deserved them, or when they were desperately needed to keep the game going.
So who better to be the recipient of a wish other than Dave Coper, my Oblivion character!
Why? Let me tell you why. Dave was in serious trouble. He was doing every thing he could trying to save the day, but he was stuck picking every stupid flower and uprooting every type of mushroom he could find just so he could sell them to get a few extra pieces of gold to use to pay someone to charge up his magical weapons. He was traveling back and forth to every town just so he could root around the mage's guilds looking for soul gems.
Anything he could carry including every knife, sword, bone, and etc. was carried to town to be sold. It seemed that the magical weapons he had worked so hard to get, were now sucking the life out of him.
It didn't take Dave very long to grow very, very tired of it all. He even starting having thoughts that it was time to retire. He figured Martin would just have to find another hero.
About that time a being with great power looked down upon Dave as he was lugging a sack of calipers to town. She remembered that Dave had done her a favor in the past but unfortunately he had unknowingly squandered the spoils she had given him.
She noted that Dave was an honest man who never knowingly stole anything. He did many things for the good of his community. He helped the poor, downtrodden, anyone in need, and he always strove to do the right thing. She decided that he could be used to bring more followers to her that in turn, she could use to do her bidding, and perhaps even one day, Dave himself would come to worship her as well.
So that night Azura came to Dave in his sleep and told him that if he wanted the star back, all he had to do was wish for it.
The next morning, Dave awoke with a start. Unsure if what had transpired was really a dream or not, he quickly shouted the words...
"player.additem 00000193 1" !!!!!!!
There was a flash of light and suddenly, the star was back in his possession.
Dave was overjoyed! He decided not to retire and so he forged ahead with new vigor, determined to save Tamriel.
Do you know what the most powerful/useful soul gem in the entire game is? If not stop reading now.
I just found out that I am in an exclusive club of wretched folk who found out all too late...
THAT THEY WASTED AZURA'S STAR!
I finally figure out what I had to do to get my mysticism level high enough to start casting soul trap and when I go looking for info on the soul gems, I find out what I had... RIGHT THERE IN MY HANDS... and I gave it away to be destroyed.... forever! (cries)
That'l teach me to get rid of something before finding out what it does first. I would go back to a previous save game, but that was many levels ago.
Of course I could cheat and get it back, but my character would never stoop so low as to cheat. I am role-playing my oldest and most favorite AD&D character from way back in the day.
Now I gotta start collecting all those darn regular soul gems. (groan)
Aw MAN! I just realized that I also wasted a Varla stone early on when I only had one magical weapon. Now everything I use is magical and I am going broke recharging them all.
I blame the folks at Bethesda. THEY did this to me. They knew it was going to be one of my early quests so of course it would be the only Daedric artifact I had.
I am so pissed that I think I am going to take a week off from playing Oblivion and take out my frustrations on some replicants. Its RPL time!
