  1. The rules are extremely helpful, thank you Frost, and the Anatomy of a Good OC guide should be helpful too. I'm doing great, Bellosh, and I hope you are as well. My last brush with roleplaying was in middle school and I've only dabbled a little since then.
  2. Thank you for the welcome and the compliment, Huscarl. And of course I'm going to be buddies with someone who has a Borat avatar. Thank you too, Armony. If you're a senior RP helped I may end up coming to you someday. Shadowrunner, you like the Beatles. You are totally awesome. Thanks for the welcome.
  3. Thanks MLPTales! So nice to get a hello so quickly, even at such a late hour.
  4. Alan Wake finally came out for the PC this year, so I thought it deserved an honorable mention. Satisfying, tense, visceral gameplay. Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP traveled to PC too, although I can't say if the experience translates well from the iPad. Now, on to the real top ten... 10. Far Cry 3: big game hunting, stealth, and exploration all wrapped up into one enjoyable package. 9. Avernum: Escape from the Pit: remake of a 1995 RPG. Like XCOM, but fantasy and with far more personality. 8. FTL: Captures the experience of commanding a space ship, Star Trek style. 7. Natural Selection 2: RTS meets FPS meets jetpacks meets really odd alien gameplay. 6. Dishonored: Quietly encouraging non-lethal solutions in a vibrant world. 5. Spec Ops: The Line: A game that hates its players, for better and for worse. 4. Sleeping Dogs: GTA-style game that finally gets driving oh-so-right, as well as a deep exploration of violence and crime. 3. Guild Wars 2: Finally, an MMO that doesn't suck. Not to mention an extremely dark world with a sugar-coated surface. 2. The Walking Dead: Storytelling at its best. The pinnacle of point-and-click storytelling, and QTEs. 1. Mass Effect 3: An absolutely perfect world with amazing characters that leaves me begging for more. At first I had TWD as first, but I thought: as a game, as a pure game, is this really the best the industry can do? ME3 is a deeply flawed game: the ending is miserable, the space exploration of the first game is much better, and I wished there were more urban hubs to explore. But aside from that ending, the Mass Effect franchise and TWD are very comparable in quality of characters and plot. When I take away the main plot from each, though... TWD becomes another zombie game, and a clunky one at that. The quality of that game comes from style and an intimate look at the characters. Mass Effect, though, leaves us with a vibrant, beautiful world, rich with ideas and ripe for exploration, and the gameplay alone has kept me and my friends entertained for hours.
  5. About Myself: I live on the East Coast. I'm a fan of spy movies, political thrillers, and board games. I'm a junior in college; my academic interests are theology, psychology and history. How I found Canterlot.com: Googling roleplayin' forums. How I became a fan of MLP:FiM: My friends bombarded me with fan music. I became really hooked to The Living Tombstone's mix of Discord. I watched the first two episodes of Season Two to see more of the character, and the rest is history. My favourite main cast pony/s: AppleJack,Twilight Sparkle I'm hoping to find some new friends and enjoy the warm atmosphere on this site! My username is Shadow, but my friends call me Joshua. I'm really new to roleplaying. That's something I want to try here too. I might just lurk a while and see how the pros do it.
