VPR Cast#44: “The Paulmercial”

Welcome to our 44th mmo podcast at mmoSmacktalk.com! First the sad news… this is more a variety podcast than an mmo podcast. Now for the good news… this is a variety podcast moreso than an mmo podcast. So what does this mean to your wonderful world? It means more hard hitting ignorance from the boys of mmoSmackTalk.com! ๐Ÿ˜€ Hear Ryan blunder through physics, Paul opine silly, Vince wax wasteful, and Ben talk about his winnings at the Shark’s game. JUST so that we are clear, those who want more mmo talk than not, this cast is not for you; however, we do hit mmo topics throughout.

BTW, thought I’d give you guys an update of what we’re playing now: nothing. With the collapse of WAR there seems to be an mmo vacuum. I’m thinking that’s why DFO was slammed so hard with orders… total speculation. Consequently we have not been able to purchase our dream game. We are now biding our time, letting others suffer through the release day/week (month?)pains of DFO before we jump in and start spanking fools. If you have any updates you’d like to share, please post your experience or a link that represents your feelings.

    1. Gotta love retarded weather people… Global warming actually= global cooling… What happens (the for every one version) is the ice caps melt fuck up the current in the Atlantic between east coast of USA/Canada and Europe. This causes a disruption in the flow of warm water from the top of africa keeping the ice caps in check. But every 5-10kish years this happens and when that flow is disrupted everything freezes and when that happens the current starts back up after a while blah blah blah… Example every single ice age that we know about…

      IM TIRED OF HEARING ABOUT POLLUTION CAUSING GLOBAL WARMING!!!

      i mean honestly sure it makes sense to the people that are like oh hes educated on this so ofcourse hes right but dont tell me that our cars are responsible the the frozen methane (ice) caps on mars to melt also cause were not obviously its bullshit SUCK IT manbearpig dude.

    2. My TB drive just fell off my case and now the reader arms are stuck :( and click every time i turn it on like tick tick tick tick OH hey whats you steam names… email them to me i love TF2…. no there are not many hacks at all in TF2 i kick ass at spy hope to play with you all on that soon

      GOOD RTS’… Empire total war, Supreme Commander, Dawn of war 2, AoM.

    3. Hi,
      As i said, you should try Aion: the tower of eternity . Check it, that game is crazy ! :) Cheers mates i like your podcasts. Waiting for next week ๐Ÿ˜‰

      BTW I think, no, i have read actualy… that our universe was created from interstallar brume effected by magnetic force or something like that (sorry my vocabulary isin’t rich enough, but i think you’ll get it)

      regards,
      kampas ^^

    4. BTW You know why darkfall is released in Europe first? because it was created there? does it make sense now ^^? And maybe there wasn’t anyone who want to publish it in america? or i don’t know how that bussines work :)

    5. Welcome kings and queens, squires and peasants, sires and chancellors, counselors and snide prudes… Welcome to our 44th Podcast. I trust you will enjoy your stay.

    6. To all Commentors…. I have no idea why some of you must await approval… please keep posting, and I’ll try to keep up. Damn strange!

      @Kampas You’re making me lean there (aion)
      @Necroticc You’re making me lean there (jumpgate)

      haha. no, seriously though.. I will DEF check them out. I appreciate all recs.

      @Lord Keegs … hallowed be thy name.

      @Connorus you try Warlords Battle Cry? Check out Warlords BattleCry 3…. IF you’re bored… it’s aging. but the mechanics are hot!..Australian devs, btw.

      @REnwalds… the source games concept is a good idea to me… some of that stuff is new and fresh; always evolving.

      Thanks for all the recs guys… I almost feel like I’m cheating on DFO just by contemplating a trial ๐Ÿ˜€

      @necroticc one thing I just brought up to vincent yesterday… what if dfo only planned for 100k at release… that’s not such a bad number to think might be there max… then add on to that that they might have had a million subscribers, given the mass exodus from WAR… preparing for 100k is waay different than prepping for 1 mill. OF course this is all theoretical, but if it’s true, can you really fault them?

    7. The reason they didn’t release it in NA is because they couldn’t get there hands on a publisher that would allow them to keep complete creative rights.

    8. That bioware game you guys keep mentioning up is Dragon Age. The bummer is I don’t think there’s a multi-player component. I’m still looking forward to that game though.

      I know what you mean about a lull in mmo’s these days, but speaking of bioware have you guys been following KOR? I’ve pretty much decided that I’m not going to follow the progress of these upcoming MMO’s after being disappointed with AOC haha. We do need a good Sci Fi MMO though!

      After hearing you guys talk about BF2, I’m jonesing to play it. And I’m still holding out hope for a (good) MMOFPS. That shit is necessary! I don’t know if you guys have played online at all recently but there are dudes that have that down to a science and if you get stuck solo in one of their games it’s ridiculous how good these guys are.

    9. @Lord Keegs… that’s just great, starting off the workday, thought I’d check some comments before I got rolling and there is Master of all Keegs making me want to boot up bf2 on the spot. Damnit you!

      What’s KOR?

    10. Haha yea I don’t have it installed anymore after I built a new PC but I played the shit out of it. I got really sucked into BF2142 and played it more but BF2 was the better game IMO.

      “KOR” was me misspelling the acronym for “TOR” lol, The star wars – the old republic one sorry haha. I want to be excited for that game since I really dug the KOTORs and Mass Effect games, but like I said I’m not going to get amped for these new ones anymore until they’re actually out or I’m in beta.

    11. @Storm Digitalis, we cast on Thursdays, the system says you posted this today (Friday). Def love to have you join in, but need to get Vince to connect our comms… do it, Vince!

      Also, we are not yet BF2ing… I might install it this weekend if I have time. If so, I’ll hit you up. Thinking next week might be more realistic for me.

    12. @Connor Damn!!! Wish I would have read this yesterday… would have added that tidbit to the cast. Thanks for the info!

    13. I used to smashT (My word, originated BEFORE the r30s) back 2 back 2 back in duels on Blackrock server, Shadow Priest to Shadow Priest. He never wanted to duel again.

      Game over bub.

      -Godsmak over and out

    14. DUDE steve its a cartoon shooter… if you want realism dont play a cartoon shooter… play COD series or something else but not a CARTOON SHO_oTER…

    15. about what i said earlier the main problem i see here in darkfall is. as an mmo you want people both buying your game or subscribing to it. having to force people to not give you money and buy your game is a disaster for any mmo. if i as a mmo cant get you the customer to buy my game its over. im not saying that at some point they will fix all the problems but its undeniable that they have and will loose the trmendous amount of fan attention this game did have and is now loosing becuse of the problem implementing their own launch. i dont wanna make a bad comparison to wow but you can buy and play wow anywhere. u can download it you can go to th store and buy it. u can download a free trial to all threee expansions. there is absolutly nothing keeping you from playing wow if you wanted to. I think we all can agree that if could we would go buy it or download it right now and play it right now. if i were them i would have made a contingency plan on how many subscribers to expect and a contingency plan on more subscribers then expected.more importantly why are we still waiting for the game after its release. Im not trying to down the techniacal problems that happen with a mmo on release but its now more then a week after release and im still waiting to buy it. thats all bad no matter how ya look at it.
      as a long time gamer ive played everything ive been playing mmos since muds eq1 and daoc ive done it all, ive betad all of them.if ya make me wait long enough thn ill just buy anouther game to keep my attention. we are all the same gotta kill someone gotta get my ownage on somewhere if i cant here.

    16. Cartoon shooters are a joke, they always have and always will. One huge problem with the game is that it is a third person shooter. I personally cant name any shooters that are in third person that are any good.

    17. @steve…. lol i understand. personally i love Gears of war 1 and 2 you may not but they are good. Also TF2 is a fun ass game and BFheroes is free and a time killer but is alot of fun also.

    18. gta 4 great game. battlefield 2 was fun. even back in its first iteration when it was desert combat. Ive killed alot of people in that game its one of the off mmos i always have on rotation. battlefield 2, dawn of war,fallout 3,crysis are my current off mmo rotation. everynow and then iill go back to AoM or rome total war both classic strategy games.

    19. @connerhawke GoW is a terrible series, and tf2 has terrible gameplay compared to TFC imo.

      @necrofiliac I played desertcombat for about a year, its a very good game.

    20.

      @necrotic Regardless of whatever I’ve said or written, when it comes down to it, I agree with you.

      If you guys are going to try bf2โ€ฆ you must try reality mod http://www.realitymod.com/

      I had that mod and its better than orginal gameplay I was pro on bf2, but that was long time ago ^^ gl

      Thanks for the tip!

      @Necrotic, have you played Dawn of War II? Just saw it at Fry’s yesterday.

    23. Oh just read that comment, haha. Whats funny is Zeuz has video of Godsmak dueling me, higher level saying hes gonna win this and that. I end up smashTing him two times in a row, then I got on my rogue and I beat his most favored class, rogue lol. I hardly played it too, I was laughing tho when zeuz got it all on video, so ask him to dig it up will ya godsmak ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks, haha. smashT

    24. Hey man, no hard feelings. I understand you were inferior to me, everyone knows Palis was the best Priest on Blackrock, 2nd was Chrome then you, but hey, #3 aint so bad. I miss tooling your girlfriend Fargus around as well, even with his purples and over-powered Shaman class back then, it was like I was of another world, I could just knock his totems down and staff him down through a silence… teehee ^_^

      But I understand Vince, you have a podcast here to run, I won’t ruin that anymore, I want you to be successful in your new career.

      The King Godsmak over and out.

    25. Hahah fargus was ahead of you by nearly double the games, and whenever we dueld you lost and got so heated lol. That time I was on my nub pali and you had your warrior thinking u were top dog, and beat u back to back and zeuz frapsed it. I was honestly laughing but felt bad. Next i get on my nub rogue which I rarely used and beat ur rogue, and thats all u really played was a rogue. I believe those are the only times you would duel me and after that you never wanted to again. Be jealous more bro ๐Ÿ˜€ I enjoy it.

    26. I never played a rogue on ED! EEEKUMZ caught in another lie! It’s ok, like I said, you need to feel better about yourself since I brought all of this out it to the public and that’s ok.

      I know in your age you don’t have many years left to try and be competitive in a game, but take it from me who has been competitive on multi-platforms and games: PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE and maybe someday you could be on my level and wouldn’t have to make up such horrific events!

      P.S. I knew I could bait you so easily, just like old times Vince!

      The King Godsmak over and out

    27. Lol godsmak u making urself look like a troll fool lol. I beat you before u got here, the fact you on my nuts like you have been since shadowbane, then come to this place to talk crap all cause I kicked you out of the guild a couple years ago, is what makes me happy. Hahaha. Fuck man I am honestly smiling ear to ear. Tell me how competitive you are again, thats always a good laugh. hahaha. smashT?

    28. I only remember removing you from the private forums and you have a hissy fit harder than my 2 year old does when she doesn’t get cookies! EEKUMZ!

      I am making myself look like a troll?!?!?! NO WAI SFARCE?????????? Internet fishing my friend, besides, this place is titled, “mmosmacktalk.com” right? Just thought I would stop by and smack you around a little bit in my old teasing way, just to make sure you didn’t forget who your leader was.

      I am glad I am making you smile ear to ear, I am a person who either makes people very happy or makes people very afraid, kind of like you were afraid back in the day to duel Priest vs Priest, but we all honestly know who comes out on top, I mean, I beat and dominated everyone. Fargus was a good target, he got a few wins under his belt. After Zeuz and I taught him about real PVP in Shadowbane (game you never went back too) he seemed like a cool guy… but was he a guy? EEEEKUMZ!

    29. I guess that means that… I won? Well I already won by trolling you out to me so easily.

      <3

      The King Godsmak over and out

    30. From Godsmak on VPR Cast#44: โ€œThe Paulmercialโ€ # awwwww someone deleted my last comment lol

      @godsmack, nothing was deleted. I get emails with all comments, it looks like they are all there to me. Tell me what the content was, if it was actually processed then I can restore it.

      ***found it, godsmack. your comment is now active. the system caught it as spam for some reason… when the sys registers spam I DONT get an email.

    31. I don’t delete comments, hahaha I don’t need to. Godsmak you been jealous of me since you met me. I love it. Just remember those duels zeuz has on fraps, and watch them over like football plays trying to be as good as me. Every char you had that you wow dueled me on, which is not an accomplishment, I beat you down over and over. I told you before and I know you hate hearing it, but you were just a par player, which is why it was easy to boot you out of the guild lol. Sorry dude.
