Fantasy Movies, Comic Books & Video Games / Re: MMOs?
« on: June 03, 2012, 04:55:12 PM »
I used to play SilkRoad Online and Voyage Century but I didn't play those games in quite a while. I just feel a bigger attachment to single player games. But I used to spend even whole nights with a mate of mine playing SilkRoad  :D A good mmorpg but lacking in a true story-line. But that is not what it truly is about MMORPG's, it is all about the challenge of playing against other people or of cooperating which in SilkRoad is essential for European characters which I simply love in that game ^^
In high school I used to play Tibia and Runescape but those are times of old :D

From games that I actually finished:
1. God of War-> simply epic, final battle with a God that makes you yourself a God
2. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic-> great plot twists but something just made me think a little bit that the main character might have some close ties or a relationship with Revan.
3. Jade Empire-> maybe not the best that can be found in games but still pretty dang good. The plot twist at the end is just simply a mind fu*& the first time you play it, and even after a longer break when you forget it :D
From games that I haven't finished yet:
1. Baldur's Gate-> a great game, with a great story that just pushes you onward in an open world
2. Morrowind-> to be frank I haven't managed to get far in the game as I always fail at it so badly :/ But what I have found about the story and the possibilities that the game gives it really is epic
3. Final Fantasy XII-> got it for my PS2 but after 30 hours of playing only that I somewhat got bored but I plan on finishing it. It starts really great though.
4. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2-> also great but not as good as the first game. Got nearly to the very finish but I didn't have the time to finish it.
5. Deus Ex-> the first game in the series, that story is simply great. It is clever and has a few interesting plot twists and some interesting options during conversations.
6. Icewind Dale II-> epic, simply epic story. I got to the point that I encounter traps I can't disarm on a bridge filled with enemies that respawn, that part of the game is a bit*% to get through. But the story is well thought out and interesting.

Well this only shows that I'm not a person that finishes all the games but still I manage to get some interesting pieces of the story to know. Oh and BTW I don't have a good PC so I can't even play Oblivion that is why I put such old games on xD And a console I only have a PS2 which I bought only recently so yeah, that's about it.

Well, monday is the deadline for me giving back my thesis and I still am waiting to get it back checked for any mistakes -.- I'm so stressed right now :/ I even started listening to songs by Queen once more to get rid of the excess stress.

EDIT: Ok now I have it, and got it ready to print first thing in the morning to leave it at my college :D FINALLY I will have my diploma work dealt with, now only to study for my methodology exam for tuesday :/

Now I'm only waiting to get back my printed version to see what needs to be corrected, but those will be only small stylistic corrections, nothing major in the work itself.

Sorry for digging up this old topic but I have to write this. I have finished my thesis and put it through a system that cheks it for piracy. And happily I can state that it is not a stolen work. I managed to find enough reliable sources and thanks to that I have to say that I am satisfied with all the hard work that I put into writing this paper.

Just great, now I'm going to have to install Baldur's Gate once more and maybe this time I'll be patient enough to get through it :D But as far as the song is concerned it is just simply great :D

I had no idea that such a thing is piracy o.O I thought that mainly the sale of such things would be as piracy. But ok, I understand and sorry for asking for such stuff.
Well I managed to find a pretty good website, questia.com but I just constantly get blocked from viewing what is in the books -.- And that being on the LAST PAGE of the first chapter, which I have to give tomorrow morning is not a good thing. I'll have to try and check the archive.org as you have suggested, and as for the online magazines at my university, unfortunately nothing of the sort :/

EDIT:
Ok I checked the Archive.org but I just can't seem to find anything there :/ But good I got back on to the questia.com webpage and managed to get my hands on some more free time :D Finished the first chapter of my thesis, got it ready for printing in the morning and I'll hand it in, hope it'll be good enough.

Ok guys and girls. I never wanted to ask for this but I need your help people. This is my third and last year of this college and I will hopefully get my Bachelor's degree, but first I need to write a thesis. I decided to write about satire
I would also ask of you for online information about authors and works such as:
Daniel Defoe-"The True Born Englishman"
Alexander Pope-"The Rape of the Lock"
Samuel Johnson-"London"
Douglas Adams-"The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy"(preferably from 1979)
William S. Burroughs-"The Naked Lunch"
I have some bits and pieces of information on some of the things I wanted to cover in my thesis but looking it all up alone might take me too long and by the 22 December I will have to give in the whole first chapter of it. I will be really grateful for anything you people can help me with. But this doesn't mean I won't look on my own, I just don't have an easy access to any English language books and magazines which makes my work on the thesis even harder.


EDIT: I changed the post, not to be considered as a pirate, never did piracy and I don't want to start doing it now.

Fantasy Movies, Comic Books & Video Games / Re: Skyrim!!!!!
« on: December 03, 2011, 11:43:11 AM »
I've seen a few videos of Skyrim and I regret not having a better PC or a console :/ I love how the whole game starts :D Awesome idea for a start, but I liked the character creation more in Morrowind.

10
Baldur's Gate 1 and 2 were simply the greatest games i have ever played. There was so much scope, so many stories and the characters were brilliant (esp Edwin and of course Minsc!)
Icewind Dale, Planescape Torment and Dragonage is well up there to but Baldur's Gate is where my heart belongs.

I personally love Baldur's Gate(both with the expansions ;) ) but try and play something from the Elder Scrolls series ;) Personally I just love Morrowind. It's mainly because of the fact that my PC is too old to manage Oblivion or Skyrim -.- But I watch a few LP's of Oblivion and Skyrim so I know what they are about ^^ But Morrowind is just brilliant, a wonderful game with a large open world and many caves and tombs to rob ^^

Alright I just found this a few days ago on a polish website with funny pictures, I had the laugh of my life when I first read it and I still laugh from it :D The first and the only funny discussion about Twilight.

General Discussion / Re: Traditional easter meals
« on: April 25, 2011, 11:01:30 PM »
We have Hot Cross Buns which are a kind of sweet bun with citrus and currants - other than that I can't think of any traditional meal.

Aren't those traditional for Good Friday?
I know it might be too late but Polish have a traditional Easter breakfast eaten right after coming back from the church from the resurrection mass. The most important and usually the only dish is Sour rye soup ^^ With everything that was brought to church for the traditional blessings of food during the Great Saturday.

General Discussion / Re: What music do you like?
« on: April 18, 2011, 04:27:20 PM »
I find myself listening to mostly soundtrack music and classical these days. Pretty much anything with a grand, epic scope or tells some kind of story. I still have a weak spot for classic rock and classic heavy metal, though I do appreciate some modern bands like Nightwish as well. My personal guilty pop pleasure is Savage Garden.

Nightwish ^^ Love them :D Didn't heard a lot of their songs but I'm going to listen to more.

Oh and lately add to my list some Irish Drinking Songs :D Sound cool and I'm thinking of learning one of those to sing during a party ^^

[Apr 2011] - Hope & Warmth / Re: April Writing Challenge
« on: April 18, 2011, 03:59:12 PM »
Oh God, I'm so stupid sometimes xD Seeing that it has to be in prose I got scared but I just read about prose and I made a huge face palm. Sorry for the off topic post but I just want to say that I'll try to post something soon, first I gotta write something that is ^^

I always was a really bad poet, only one poem that I wrote was good enough for me to like it. This is my weak point :/
