May 25th 2010 9:25PM it's a really great show: great characters, mostly interesting stories, real drama. honestly, though i played football as a kid, i never imagined that i'd like a football-centric show, but somehow i really do. hopefully, reruns will result in more people watching it.
Apr 13th 2010 11:26AM easily one of the best first episodes of a series that i’ve seen in awhile: skilled actors who convey so much from their body language; entertaining, evocative music; a plot with both urgency and moral weight; and some damn fine filming.
Mar 23rd 2010 5:08PM given that i'm from KY, i was quite surprised when i saw that character wearing a hat. the message it seemed to say was that the South is culturally homogenous with no difference between texans and kentuckians.

Your comments are spot on. When I played the game, it was grind-grind-grind-grind-grind ad nauseum. the graphics were pretty, I liked chained skills, but wow, do I really have to kill 1000000 turtle-like creatures in order to get even close to the next level?
From what I've read, the solution they propose for the next patch helps nothing. Rest XP isn't the solution. Greatly increasing mob XP and quest XP and/or reducing XP/level is the way to go. Otherwise, it's going to be more grind-grind-grind.
Judging from the shrinking playerbase for this loser game, only a small percentage of players like the endless grind.

asperger's us not asberger's
Mar 4th 2010 11:26PM the top and most consistent complaint from players who struggle (and eventually quit) Aion is the mindless and repetitive grind. Increasing xp through a rest system will not affect that. reducing the massive xp/level amounts or increasing the overall xp gains (like making double xp weekends everyday) is the sole way to lure back players like me who got bored in the late 20s/early 30s by killing a zillion dumb creatures using the same key rotation over and over and over again.
Feb 17th 2010 1:57PM I think there must be a connection between the rules of how Jacob and the MiB relate and the rules of how Widmore and Ben Linus must relate. Both have talked about what is or is not permitted by "the rules", and for both sets of rules, they're not allowed to kill each other directly.
Feb 1st 2010 11:30AM i thought tin man was fine. i just hate the fact that they canceled a good show like dresden files (which was just getting its legs) and replaced it with an AWFUL show like flash gordon.
Jan 13th 2010 12:14PM such a great show!
