My favorite game of the moment

Postby ryanbarrot on Thu Jun 08, 2006 2:05 pm

Hey people,

So I have been playing a lot lately those so called MMOG, or if you prefer massively multiplayer online games.
The concept is pretty neat, those are games where you play basically for free but make real cash. Here however the catch, you are eligible for the cash prize only if you pay a minimum... Isn't that lovely?

Anyway, I've tried a lot, like combatgrounds, mafiaboss until I found recently (2 days ago actually) a very nice one. Its called spaceinquest (www.spaceinquest.com).

You'd tell me so what is it so fantastic about this game that we've never seen before? Well, I guess I'm in love with this game because it combine strategy like risk, thinking like chess and most important its good looking!!
Its made in flash but certainly not slow, its very visual. I like the way you need to think. Not only short term but long term. You need to define where you want to conquer your first territory. And trust me, when its comes to choosing, you have a lot of pro and cons. Also you have some features that make the game interesting like a shield for protecting yourself. But the good thing is that you don't keep it forever, so the game is never static.

The only thing I can think of as general con for the game is that its a bit hard to play, but you get the concept after 2 hours of so by reading the rules. I've been playing a lot lately and I DO love it.

The other thing is that they reward you for paying (best supporter) as well as paying you for winning...

So check it out if you have some time, I’m now recruiting for them anyway :d

See you there maybe (player name is suips!)

Sorry. Influx of spammers lately. Introduce yourself in the New Converts Thread in START HERE.

When we see a first post advertising/recommending one site or another, ESPECIALLY with keywords like "cash" in them, it looks like (and for practical purposes is) spam advertising, and tends to be bots.

There are some MMOG gamers about...

Hmm. How can we be sure? Could be the spammers have devised a bot that can pass the Turing test. :wink:

why did that even set you off? because of one link that didn't even register as a link? it seemed honest to me.

Unfortunately close to spam-talk. We are spam-weary. At least it's not prawn or V1A 6R4. :mrgreen:

that part points it out as being 'it kinda sucks tho' rather than 'but it's totally worth it' or something.

Shush, Q. It set off my alarm, too, and I would've said something if he hadn't posted again.

Sorry for all the confusion, ryan, but the latest spambots around here haven't just been posting links to prawn, they've also been pretending to be human and posting little paragraphs of text with their links. It looked suspicious, but now we know it isn't.

Let's carry on!

whao wait, that game doesn't look like World of Warcraft at all....
If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere committing evil deeds, an it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?
