Heretics at the Table!

I think this "news" speaks more to a general disappointment with recent heroes games than anything else.

Maybe we'll do this some other time...

Gah(!), I just never have enough time when I want to do crazy stuff! :D

Yeah, this would be hard to coordinate(but I think it can be done). Now, you(Banedon) do not necesarily have to have the game installed for this to work. Although ludicrous in the extreme, and I have thought about it, I could pm(or email), because this would take so long through posts, the shots of ...

I'll make a longer post later(I'm currently at university), but it is worth considering, if even for a moment, that Daniel is not an idiot. He is noting that HALO 2 is a new version of HALO. Although he may word it oddly, one can see that his point is made nonetheless(those that have played it will ...

Sure, by all means. Note: I do think Fortress is capable of offering effective resistance to Rampart; I just think Rampart will win more often than not. Rampart will suffer heavy casualties, yes, but Rampart will win. Okay, what hero would you like to have on your(Rampart) side? Fortress will have ...

Another Review of Heroes of Might and Magic 5

<a href="/http://www.gamecritics.com/review/hommv/main.php">Game Critics</a> offers a review of Heroes of Might and Magic 5. Daniel gives it a 7.5 overall, though it is worth mentioning that on their scale a 5 is average. The review is interesting in that it begs the question, "Has the series really ...

I don't have Heroes 3 installed :( Unless you can test it out hypothetically...? I know. I mean to say that we would have a hypothetical battle where the two sides are with a set amount of forces, stats, etc.(If you've played HOMMV duel mode then you sort of know what I'm talking about). We do not ...

I'll set up a battle Banedon where we can test this(although I am on your side about the Rampart against Fortress debacle). If you'd like to have such a battle we'd have to have some things agreed to at the start like which heroes, level of heroes, size of army, spells known, etc... If you're intere...

I may sometime this week, it depends on midterms( :ill: ), go ahead and try the map again on hard to see how good I can do. Does it matter to you Banedon if the level two dwelling is there or not? I seem to recall some contention on the matter when csarmi was still around. Then again I'm not so sure...

i cant name a single good USA horror movie though. In no particular order, The Shining, Halloween and Halloween H20, The Grudge (I liked the US version better than the original), The Omen, The Exorcist, George Romero's 'Dead' series, The Ring, Poltergeist, Nightmare on Elm Street (featuring Johnny ...

I saw Flags of our Fathers yesterday...

Now, perhaps it is a bit too long and the editing could have been tighter, but it's an awfully good film that I think people should go see. I look forward to the so-called "companion film" to be released later this year.

Not for the faint-hearted though.

The (first) Grudge was actually pretty scary. It had some nice new visual and auditory effects that startled me several times. The atmosphere was wonderfully disturbing and there was enough story to keep my interest. And SMG is always good. Is this the only J-Horror film that you've seen? If you wa...

And I thought we had solved this debate months ago. :D

Unless someone, once again, wants to have a "controlled test" about Necro strength then I'm not sure what's left to discuss(however much fun it may be).

The Grudge(Ju-On), if I'm correct, is just a terrible knock-off of Ringu(The Ring). I've watched both Japanese originals and, frankly, they're both so alike it's scary! :scared:

And there I was about to start a thread just like this. :devil: I haven't seen any new films in quite some time, I will be going to see Flags of our Fathers soon because it is an Eastwood film. Mostly I have been watching older films in an effort to better understand the medium. Here are a few I thi...

I gave up on Illium and started Stephen King's The Dark Tower instead. I'm in the middle of book 2 now. The Dark Tower was great, but fell apart (IMO) at the end. I didn't really like the last two books very much, sadly. The high point was book 4, which could pretty much be read without the others ...
