What can I say about this game, except for the fact that I haven't stopped playing it. Its such a fun and addicting game. It's by far the best mmorpg that I've ever played in my life. The PvE is exciting, the PvP is extremely well made, the world events are challenging and the main story is very interesting.

Right now, if I had to recommend one game to the entire world, it would be this. I am so glad I bought this game. I've had so much fun with it.

Did I mention that it also looks AMAZING? The world is so greatly developed. They encourage exploration and wandering around with things called vistas, which are usually hard to reach places that are high up and require a bit of work to get to. When you reach them they award you with a nice little bit of experiences. Also, if you find all the locations in the map, the game rewards you with a chest full of good loot.

Definitely get this game.

Added image is me and my chicken pal. :D

I played the first. I don't really have time for an mmoprg right now (although Diablo is getting close...), but if I did this is probably where I'd go.

Heard great things about GW2 from a bunch of people at PAX. It seemed to be the hot MMO right now with the crowd I spoke to(outside a panel on MMO's).

That screen grab is fun, how did that all happen?

There was a mission in which you could pick up chickens, and when I did, he grew 3x in size. I thought it was screen cap worthy considering my character's name is Cluckles. Not to mention I love chickens.

Cluckles... Well done sir!

Oh and a tip I want to pass on... If you ever should play Skyrim, don't ever hit a Chicken. Sounds funny and I sort of thought it would be link Link to the Past and they would swarm you and back off after a few seconds.

Nope, nope, nope.

Nope, you just get attacked by everyone in town. haha.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 09/06/2012 at 03:50am

Yes you do. Apparently everyone thinks you are some kind of killer for doing it.

I told my wife and she was like "Good, they should attack you for hitting that poor chicken!" :D

I agree with her, chickens are just poor defenseless creatures that deserve better >:(

haha, I'm just waiting for the mod that allows me to ride a giant chicken mount.

Chicken mount would be great.

Dude, chicken mounts have been done before:


BR   Supporter   Post Author wrote on 09/06/2012 at 10:28pm

Yeah, but technically those are chocobos, not chickens. Plus, there are no chicken mounts in skyrim or guild wars 2.

Tungsten wrote on 09/06/2012 at 11:58pm

did you check the Nexus? I would be surprised if there is no chicken mount.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 09/07/2012 at 03:13am

Internet to the rescue:

Looks like fun.

Ah yes, I do remember seeing that video. Although, I don't believe he released it.

Also, it has been awhile since the last time I played skyrim but last time I checked the nexus they did not have a chicken mount mod. There might be one now but I haven't played skyrim very much lately so I haven't really checked. Sleeping dogs and Guild wars 2 takes up all my free time.

Are there more mods on the Nexus than the Steam Workshop?

Tungsten wrote on 09/08/2012 at 01:15am

Probably. A lot of the modders don't like the Steam Workshop EULA (it gives them rights to the mod), so they prefer to only post their mods on the Nexus.

A quick estimate puts 16,000 files on the Nexus. Now, many of these are absolute crap, but many are really good.

The Nexus Mod tool that the site uses is better in many ways than the Workshop Tool, but you can use both at the same time. I always loaded my favorite mods in the Workshop, experimental mods and the 3 or 4 that I had to have but the Workshop didn't support ended up working under the Nexus.

BR   Supporter   Post Author wrote on 09/08/2012 at 02:45am

Yeah, most of the more major game changing mods are on the nexus. If you like small random mods, the workshop is probably fine for that.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 09/08/2012 at 06:15pm

OK ill checkout the Nexus then, thanks!
