    Hehe, nice one Zero Razz

    They seem to have delayed the launch till tomorrow
    We’ve hit some unforeseen bumps in the road, which have caused us to have to delay our launch. We’ll be working hard through the night to prepare for a launch tomorrow. Thanks to you all for your patience.

    Other games I do play at the moment:
    - Armed Assault 2 (Tactical Teambased FPS)
    - Battle for Wesnoth (Turnbased Strategy, open source)
    - League of Legends (DotA Clone that is "free to play")
    - Killing Floor (Teambased FPS)
    - Natural Selection 2 (Closed Beta, Teambased FPS)

    I think I might play more FPS than Strategy games after all Laughing

    Hello Angelo.


    This game seems kinda nice. But, if anyone know any free-to-play MMORPG or any sort of RPG or Sandbox game, this might acctually be something for us at Arania to part-time play. As Arania is very unstable and broke since Hey0 left us, this might be something for us to all gather and enjoy.
    Untill Arania is back on her feets!

    I am not saying people should stop play MC at Arania, just saying that we could start something on that game, maybe a guild/clan and conquer those lands togheter! As Arania! Smile

    We can spread the Arania world through other games!
    Name the guild Arania! Venture further into the gaming world!

    I do not know if everyone like these sort of games, but for those who like these kind of games, you could join me and we'll see if we are able to start something?

    If you have any suggestion at all, feel free to post it here!

    So, who's intressted in starting something out with me?! Very Happy

    Nice Thread hijacking there Runk Razz

    But seriously, sounds good to me and I am all up for slaying some Orcs or shooting space Cowboys in the name of Arania Laughing

    All we need now is a game we can wreak havoc in! Anybody got some cool suggestions?

    League of Legends is good fun, but limited to five people per team... ( so there may be issues )

    On topic, the MTG game doesn't seem to be released quite yet and don't you have to buy extra cards?

    Yep, still not released yet.
    The way I read it you CAN buy additional cards but can perfectly play without buying any additional cards. You can also earn cards by playing but it take's longer of course (basically like League of Legends I think).

    Ah I'm totally down for Magic
    And I've been playing LoL with a few of my friend for the past 2 years so I can vouch for the fun on that.
    They even released a new character to play as yesterday.

    EDIT: Where to download Magic? I went to the page but there's no sign up or anything I can see >.>

    Sorry about the Doublepost Embarassed

    I can't run the Magic game (error message of doom Sad)

    Has any of you played Entropia before? It looks like a free to play Sandbox MMORPG with really nice Graphics [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    Hello guys!


    I have looked around and i've found a very interessting game.
    It's called Entropia Universe, with plenty of planets. These planets represent "Games" in themself. There's for the moment like 6 planets.

    The planet I feel is mostly interesting is Calypso.

    Link to Calypso:

    Gameplay Video:
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    This game has a Real life economy, and looks really cool. With some awesome graphics for a free to play game. This is a Sandbox game, so we will form the game. Please check this site and some videos out and tell me what you think!

    This might be a game for us to start in, create an Arania community and start to rule the world of Calypso!

    My opinion, it seems awsum epicness.

    Tell me yours!

    I would be happy to play any game with you guys, say the word and it shall be done.

    Edit: Entropia looks pretty good.
    Editx2: Like Runk said Calypso seems to be the better of the 3 current worlds(3 are coming soon).

    Yeah Runk and me explored the World yesterday for a bit and it seems really cool.
    You got different stuff you can do like Mining, Hunting, Creating Items etc.. Just like Minecraft basically but on a bigger scale.
    There are also vehicles and aircraft.
    You can own land and get payed taxes if people mine/hunt on your land and more.

    BUUUT the start seems kinda slow. You have to "sweat" (extrating sweat from Mobs which is used for various other skills) for a couple of hours before you can really start with the fun stuff.

    Some professions: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    /e: I am Angelo "Thor" Burton ingame (not my real last name btw . Razz)
    You can currently find me around the Swamp Outpost near the starting city.

    Heh, I would have thought Entropia was dead by now.

    I used to play it about 7 or so odd years ago before the WoW came out.

    I warn you it's a very tough game to play without dumping some IRL currency into and is incredibly painful and unrewarding if you don't play with atleast 1 person who has.

    That being said that was like 7 years ago so a lot could of changed Razz

    Back then however there was only 1 Planet and a Space Station, I believe they were opening the 2nd planet just as I was leaving ^_^

    Have we chosen Calypso then?

    Yeah we kinda chose Calypso. This game seems to be around for a long time!
    I would rather like to avoid spending Real Life money Laughing

    Do you still have your old Character then?

    Heh, the game is so old I let it go inactive and get purged didn't think I'd ever have a reason to play the game again Razz.

    Even though they gave me like 3 years warning.

    Ok after playing for a couple hours now I have to say konis, the game hasen't really changed since you lats logged in 7 years ago Smile

    In theory there are many cool and interesting things you can do (and see in the tutorial) but once in the "real" game it becomes quite clear that, without spending real life cash, you can't do anything really.
    Besides monotonous gathering of Sweat. And it seems to get things going, you need at least a couple thousand of this Sweat. Which in turn will take literally tens of hours gametime to accumulate.

    Guys I am not so sure anymore if this is the right game for us. On the outside it seems cool and probably it is if you spend Cash, but for a casual alternative it doesn't really seem to be the right game.

    But test it out yourself and give your opinion after a couple of hours again. Maybe it's just me?

    Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't mind spending some cash if it's fun and dandy. But this game seems more like some kind of Online Casino. Some people win much and most people loose lots and lots of money. Even after spending some Money chances are high you won't get your money back from Loot/Ore and have to spend more Money to keep things going (or collecting Sweat again for several hours).

    Heh, I thought as much :p. I was lucky when I played found a nice guy who was willing to help me get started. Brought me to a real dangerous area which generated a random item i think it was gas or something that sold for a lot back that cause u had to fight ur way past raptors and T-rex's. And that basically funded my basic equipment and weaponry which after I just found a clan which settled in some ruins and just hung around there =D


    *EDIT*
    As for it being a casino, thats exactly what it is. The friend I played with used to put in 40 Pounds into it a month and was able to pull 65 Dollars out on a good month and break even on an ok month but most months he'd usually lose money.
