      @Lawl: Although I haven't watched SAO, I still had a sneaking suspicion that would be the case.

    3. Ruze

      Ruze

      Not. At. All.

    4. Aari

      Aari

      Yea, Tera is better.

  6. I was just on TV tropes looking up this trope http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HorribleJudgeOfCharacter when I suddenly remembered all of the player character's naïve moments didn't anyone thought about how too trusting the pc was to Mushin I mean the guy screamed obviously evil if you listen to his voice then again I doubt the players who finished the story thought he was evil at first also the pc was desperate to stop Jin Seo Yeon and didn't care that he looked evil I didn't know at first did anyone else? Also since the pc lived at the Hong mun school and before that thier home village it's understandable that he/she didn't have any real world experience so tell me your thoughts on this topic I wrote mostly to players who finished blade and soul's story.
  7. I had the worst holloween ever last night a few kids came then there was news it would rain so no else showed up on the plus side i watched a charlie brown holloween special and ate some candy better luck next year

      That is pretty bad. xD

    3. Tashigi

      Tashigi

      Resolution makes the biggest impact for the tool.

      So if you set it very low, you can get a huge score. My computer would get the score of 7171 under 1280x720 res but only 6600+ under 1680x1050 for example.

    4. Tashigi

      Tashigi

      All in all, if you get over 4000+ then you can play this game on very high settings, no problem. Just be sure to turn off a bunch of silly stuff like blur/edge darkening, AO, AA and turn it on via SweetFX as it's less taxing that way.

  11. Long time no see~ <3 And I got your message about the updates to B&S <3

    Thanks so much ;v;

  12. i finally have guild wars 2 tyria here i come!
