Damn, I wish it was still new to me.

Oh well.

The_root_of_all_evil:

I go for a quick run-through of the character building options and am able to craft my avatar in just under a fortnight, which is a new record for me.

Ah, the happy weeks I'd spend just trying to get the costume right.

I literally spent about 4 hours on a new costume when I got a new costume token (city of villains).. Thinking of a good outfit that's cool and cute is so hard!

It's getting the colour-blends just right; and making sure that the costume is utilitarian as well as looking good. People just don't understand how much WORK goes into saving the world.

That reminds me of a book I have from Amazon.com called, "Does this cape make me look fat?"

Shamus my friend, there is only one thing left for me to do and that is *facepalm*

I can't forgive you retiring Lulzy to bring an encore of this. This game is so awful its not even funny to make fun about it. Its one of those things you should just walk off and forget it ever happened. Thats just my opinio though. Many people seem to like so "On with the show"

I will be outside watching the stars until the at changes again.

For a limited time only, we have all the old LotRO articles up for reading!
Does that mean you're going to take them down? and if so are you going to retain the rights so shamus can't even put them on his site?

Yay! Hi Star On Chest! Back from retirement hey? Woot! /hug

ah nice, I glanced this earlier but opted not to read it. guess it's a good thing since you've brought it here now haha

hmmm seems like there's less character development this time. and uhhh wasn't his powers like telekinesis or something?

I love this Lets Play. This is my first time reading and I got to say I like it better when the characters in game do most of the talking. The way it is now it sounds like it is coming from the player than Star on Chest. It is a minor gripe though because the comedic factor is still strong.

Aw man, I'd already read this (when it was linked on Lulzy's LP, no less). Goodbye, cruel world.

Man I alpha / beta tested this game and I have to say; the juniors they picked up to help make it disgust me.

There's good stuff in there, but the 'that's too hard' crowd RUINED the game.

When they rework it to be more sandbox / the nemesis system is actually something special / and the quest design is actually handled by someone who's made a game before: Then it'll be 'okay'.

Man the customization, game play, and advancement system is just WAY ahead of the generic world they stuck it all in.

Sums it up pretty well. I have a few characters in CO that I really enjoy playing. I just hate the world in which they're stuck.

Ahhh I remember this. Was a good read awhile back. It actually made me give that game a go with the free trial and all. The trial gives a very poor appearance for the game though so I never really committed anything more to it. Sort of just abandoned MMOs altogether now. Ah well, at the rate TF2 is going we'll have recipes for enchants in no time. [/sarcasm]

Piccadilly Square???!!!
I believe Hitler would have had more luck if he had have deposited said babies at Piccadilly Circus.

Just sayin'

I love your stuff Shamus, but I hope you play some MMO other than Warcraft and mock it next. We all already know the flaws of WoW. It's why we are reading your comic instead of playing it.

LazerFX:
I can understand this. I don't know how much overlap there is between TwentySided and Escapist, but I bet it's mostly one-way (i.e. lots of TwentySided fans have come to the Escapist because Shamus is now here, but very few have gone the other way - no offense Shamus). Therefore, there's quite a high chance that this series, which does have its comedic value, has not been seen before by most of the population of the Escapist...

Those who have seen it, well, just read or don't read it. Maybe you've forgotten most of it by now? Either way, it's nice to see the original Let's Play series airing here, and it's easy work for Shamus, so he gets a bit of a rest. We all win, right?

I sort of started both at the same time. I came across DM Of The Rings (something which I think should be done for Harry Potter... not an obvious plea for it to happen...) around the same time I came across Stolen Pixels. I guess i'm the hybrid freak of the Escapist now then?

We never remove content - it should be there as long as the site is online. Please excuse Kross; he has a defective sense of humor.
