age of conan and things

As some of you know I have been obsessing about the upcoming Age of Conan game for a while now. So when my brother Matias told me they would have a stand at a gaming convention in Paris this weekend, i knew i had to go. So today I went with Sam.

Uggghhh I was so disappointed. First of all, characters kept blinking from one place to the next, instead of running there. This is kindof disaster for the real time fighting system... The moves were all really slow and not very fluent. The fighting moves I mean. And I was really expecting the graphics to be better. Parts of it looked really cool, like the moving grass and the water. But it didn't really fit together very well, and so it felt more like props than scenery... I haven't passed my final judgement on this yet, but I will certainly stop obsessing about it :p

The other games look pretty shitty too. The Warhammer one looks really cheap. The characters look like something for DS. REAlly...I dunno...compact. They look like Warcraft 3! The strategy game. And the LotR one just looks exactly like WoW. The Camelot one looks bad too. It's stupid because you'd think there was some development so far after they first released WoW... The only game that looked really cool was the little they showed of the new Starcraft. But even that looked exactly like Warcraft 3...

Anyways despite of this disappointment, I am in a really good mood. A friend is helping me do a website for my photos and wow it will be so cool. I can't wait to show you! :).

Hhhmm, that's crappy to hear, about the games. I may still check 'em out when they're released though.

Yay for siphophoto.com... or whatever it will be, LOL.

I can't wait to see your new site either. I've been checking out your blog and flickr-account regularly for quite some time now and I love 'em.

Oh, and sorry about being anonymous here(my name is Casper), it's just that I'm not a user of LiveJournal.

...i am going to learn how to use the combination buttons to play Street Fighter 2.

When I've done that, then I can look into these current games, which look interesting...it is just that I am too much of a loozah to understand them :)

Hope you are well in Paris. SOunds like it anyway :-)
