For example (these aren't spoilers, they're things that DON'T have explanation):
Where the main character's biomechanical arm came from.
Who the main character's side-kick really is.
How the main enemies are created.
What's even happening in the final cutscene.
The protagonist AND the antagonist's true motivations.

Most of this is either not explain or is very subtly explained. You'd have to play a few times to even gain a grasp of what it's really about.

But besides that, the gameplay is great and there's decent enough replay value for the rankings and the secret unlockables.

Its in Dutch, and you'll have to register (I've never received a single email from them, so dont expect any spam)... You could give it a go using google translate.

Frown: Spring training is almost over : ( So I highly doubt I can convince these guys I could help for baseball season. But it's better than nothing I suppose. Meeting people is more important.

Also, I had a really cool dream last night o__o
It took place in a world that was half How to Train Your Dragon, and half Skyrim. I say that cuz the landscape was skyrim, but the characters there were all of Hiccup's friends, minus Hiccup himself. I was actually my roleplay character, Redd, and the village had captured two Dragon, one being Raolly, Redd's pet dragon.

I don't remember much from the dream, other than a scene where I sprinted across a field towards the village after having screamed at some other people to tell me where the dragons were being held. Astrid tossed me a dagger and then we both sprinted right up to where the dragons were being held. We slid to a stop when a really fat man bitch slapped Raolly, and she retaliated by ripping his arm off. Everyone started to scream about it, and I sprinted right through the crowd, jumped off of a scaffolding and cut the rope that held that dragons mid-jump, then fell into shallow pond below.

Raolly took off, never to be seen again for the rest of the dream. Her rope fell and some how got wrapped around my neck. I turned over and cut the other rope, freeing the yellow dragon. As I stopped to untangle the rope around my neck, the villagers had jumped down and seized me and I was struck KO. From there the dream went black until someone tried to wake me up by pressing down on my head and up on my chin. I had been captured by the villagers, and they seemed busy trying to figure out what to do with me when the rest of Hiccup's friends appeared.

One of them (prolly Astrid cuz I heard her voice telling me to run) dragged me through a broken plank in the fencing of where I was being held and we escaped the village out the back.

From there, I just ran like hell. Several people were chasing me and Astrid, and I never quite got away, but it was one hell of a flight scene.

Megafrown.

My social service is about to end. I thought this was going to be the end of everything 'till i got to making my thesis, but now i've been informed i have to pay +100,000 pesos (around $7539.90 US) just so i can be allowed by the school to start my thesis, in quotes that i didn't even know that existed, like having to pay for a receipt stating that i didn't steal books from the school's library that i never visited even once, or having to pay for "cleaning services and mortgages". I don't know what the fuck am i going to do since i have no job.

In any case it'll be a fat minute until i can start my thesis, if i ever do it. It's like everytime you think you're done with things, more things pop out of the woodwork to make my life miserable.

@Mir

I know, right? I've been at this sh*t for almost half a year and no one's even called back to give a BS excuse. Hell, if you don't like my app, atleast call and tell me it's been denied. Fo srs!

@Sly

H2TYD movie one, TV series, or H2TYD 2 version?

Thanks for the info about WS, Asmo! I'm going to be on my private persona, though, so no partying up. ): Maybe if I have time, but since I won't be on after the beta either and am just checking out its mechanics, that's not very likely. :O

Frown though with a fair bit of smug smiling: Wildstar suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks donkey ass. Aside from its quirky aesthetics, its basically just WoW with smoother controls. Its just fetch quest after fetch quest after fetch quest, and even the "profession" paths arent all that differing from each other. Settler instead of soldier? Collect stuff and hand them in at a drop-off point, instead of killing everything (just kidding, you still need to kill everything).

And I never thought I'd ever say this, but the breasts of the female characters are way too big. Even the fricking robot race has breasts the size that would give any normal person back injuries. Not to mention that their lower backs are about as wide as a pencil.

Very glad I got to play this beta, so now I'll never wonder if the game is good or not (of course, that said, its still in beta...).

^ This.

I haven't even been able to do the first quest yet. Why?

Because my laptop, which can run both TERA and Vindi at max settings, can't run a WoW-graphics+interface game on its lowest settings.

The f*ck? And this is after it took out 6 KB of my computer.

Freaking sucks x.x

Go to options and lower your "Render Target Scale" from 2 (default) to 1.

I went from 15 fps to 50 when doing that.
