So, I finally made the plunge into Warhammer 40k. I have been checking out a couple of the books (for the miniatures game) from a friend from work, and the more I read about it, the more I found it interesting. I found a store that both sells and plays the games, so I purchased the box starter set, Assault on Black Reach.

Wow.

There are two armies included, a Space Marines army and an Orks army. Both are pretty small, but they are both a good start. Some very cool  miniatures, and fro...

Anyone else getting this? I have pre-ordered, and will be going to the midnight opening to pick it up. It is due to release this next Tuesday (4/29/08).

I am not sure when the last time I was this excited about a game...maybe Lord of the Rings Online. I just know that this game looks like it is going to be AWESOME.

So many things I am looking forward to. The Euphoria Engine (the game engine) supposedly renders character animations "on-the-fly". And there...

Link to Armageddon Empires: http://www.crypticcomet.com/games/AE/armageddon_empires.html



Well, after spending most of the day (and lots of the night) playing Armageddon Empires, I think I can not give more knowledgeable thoughts about it. This will be a long post, but even with the long post, I am not getting into everything that this game has to offer....

WOW

Really, that sums it all up, but I will go a bit deeper than that.

First, the setting. Post-Apocalyptic setting. I am us...

I have been having problems with quicktime. Quicktime simply will not work anymore for some reason on my pc.

Whenever a webpage loads up with something on there that uses quicktime, the movie does not load up. If I have a program that uses quicktime, the program crashes, with the typical (but with no info) message that the program has encountered a problem, and must close.

I have tried to uninstall quicktime (so I can do a fresh reinstall), but instead, I get this message:

So, I have started working out this week. Three days so far (Monday, Wed, and Friday). I have a question, though.

When exactly does "muscle failure" happen? I have read that I am to do an exercise up to 13 reps OR until muscle failure takes place. I noticed today, for example, that doing the bench press, by about 8 or 9 reps, I really started to "shake". Is that muscle failure? Or would muscle failure actaully take place when I simply cannot lift anymore?

It would seem that failure woul...

It took me a long time to get this game. I have always looked at it in the store....read reviews....but I just could never bring myself to spend the money.

A friend of mine bought it a few months ago...so I asked him if I could borrow it, and check it out. It only took me 20 minutes to realize that I wanted my own copy of the game!!

I then went out last night, and bought it.

Really, there is just something about this game that I cannot put my finger on....The game is so addictive!! I st...

I have a guild in WoW....and I am working on setting up a server for ventrilo.

I have the host name, I have the port, I have the password....I can log into the server. But nobody else can.

Is there anything that anyone can help me out with figuring this out?

Is there a trick to it? What am I missing?

Thanks

The game has been out for a few days now...and just wondering if anyone has it? I have it, and let me just say, I really like the changes. Though many of the changes are subtle, I think overall, the game is MUCH better than Dominions 2.

The way the fortresses are done to the the new ages to the old age mechanic....so many good things in Dom3.

If we have ppl that have the game, lets get a MP game set up and going....Brad? I know you posted about it on the galciv2 web page....did you get it...

So, I got a "come back and try us for free" invitation for this game. I had it way back about a year or two ago....forget exactly.....but anyways....I have resubscribed here and there, but never really gave it the time of day past the first month when I bought it originally (I think the problem I always had was.....never could settle on what I wanted to play as....too many choices!!)

Anyways....after a few days of debating, I have settled on an Iksar Shadowknight. For those of you who do not ...

Ok...here is the situation....

My wife cannot work anymore due to getting ready to have our baby at anytime....

There goes HALF of our 2000 dollars a month income. While she is working, we do not get, nor do we need, any help (cash assistance or food). We make our way, and do what we can, and we come out ok....

But, there is going to be 2 months without her income...just mine.....and I barely break 1,000 dollars a month.

She goes to FIA, and puts in the paper work to our case worker...
