I'm a Rogue!


It's a good thing I use my powers for good and not evil, because quite frankly, I could get away with murder. I'm clever, tricky, and charming. I know how to make you laugh with one hand and pick your pocket with the other. Not that I'd ever DO that, of course...

No, I don't hate anyone... I may dislike people, but never hate them... And I didn't mean I was making a separate game! I was making a mod for another game that was QFG6!

Hate is a strong word. I don't think it should even really belong in the dictionary as it is, but whatever. You can't really hate someone unless you really know them well, and if you spent all that time getting to know someone just to hate them, well, then are you sure that "hate" is the word you want to use?

And yeah, Japanese is nifty, but I don't really know how to speak it. I can say please and thank you, and count to 5 and that's it. smile.gif Kinda bad considering I'm part Japanese... I should probably learn Chamorro as well, since that's my father's native language, but that's a lot of time to devote, and I already know quite a few languages as it is. But oh well.

Sorry, no description or picture since my HtbH account still thinks I'm a wizard, but I'm actually in the paladin wing of the forums. Oh well, that's life. :)

Speaking of languages, I like German too. So many umalauts... wink.gif

Then again, Latin is a very nifty language too! wink.gif

As for Sierra, I guess that VU management thought that as far as Sierra's audience was concerned, Tempora mutantur, et nos mutamur in illis... which is REALLY unfair. frown.gif

(BTW, for those of you curious as to what that means: Tempora mutantur, et nos mutamur in illis simply means "The times change, and we change with the times".) <grin>

There are many types of magic, but all require a sharp mind and a cool head. There is no puzzle I can't solve, no problem I can't think my way out of. When you feel confused or uncertain, you can always rely on me to untangle the knots and put everything back in order for you.

I was sorta expecting this for a while now. I should feel more sad than I feel, I guess, but what's happened has happened, and I still have the games they already released and the chances of them making sequels that fans approve of or other things like that are not good anyways, so, oh well. :/

And maybe I'm just a very cynical person.

Fills me with love and laughter

I think Frans' friend said it best when he compared it to "finally burying a 5-year-old corpse." However, I believe that they would be a little more susceptible to buying the rights now that Sierra is dead dead. Couldn't hurt to try.

Oh, and for the record, English is referred to by many illuminaries and scientists (Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo, etc.) as "la lingua pura," or "the pure language." Then again, like the Merovingian said in Matrix: Reloaded, cursing in French "is like wiping your bum with silk."

Personally, as far as hating the French go, it's moreso the French hate everybody else. I read an article awhile back that when Vivendi sold off the American dictionary company Webster to an American company, the French Government (not the French people, the French Government) criticized them as hindering the cause of the French people and selling out the country. However, when Vivendi merged with/purchased Universal Studios, the French Government extoled their virtues and how much they help in the advancement of France and all its glory. Now, I'm not one to go pointing fingers, but a country that criticizes its businesses for making necessary business decisions that might in some way throw a bone to another country? Wow.

*cocks head, wonders what Kurt did wrong*

I think it's kind of funny that the english language is considered the hardest language to learn. Like one of my friends said once, "The english language is so hard that even those born to english society have to take high school classes to learn it." hehe.


I think it's really sad that they got rid of Sierra...I don't think it's fair to call it a "5 year old corpse* considering they made games in that time. Ah well, if that's what they felt they needed to do...

Guys I think this topic is way out of line.

Sure off-topicness is allowed.... but insulting and abussing others is not!

Please read the forum board rules located in the Announcements forum.

I guess I'll have to delete this topic....

Yeah, I was actually going to ask you about that, too. Yesterday, I recieved an e-mail from PW asking the admins and mods to delete a repeat post, and I came on here and sure enough I had the keys to the kingdom. Weird, huh?

I mean, I'd love to stick around as admin if you want, doesn't hurt me any... wink.gif tongue.gif Then again I'm insano-go-nuts, so you might not want that happening. biggrin.gif

As for the French, I was joking in any reference I made, but the story I told is a true story. It was moreso a criticism of French bureaucracy than it was anything else. Sorry if I offended the delicate psyches of anyone around here.

Most things said about the French nowadays are jokes... which is kinda bad...

I like the French... 'specially those girls with ze accents! biggrin.gif
