Welcome
Welcome to Archangels of Atreia!

We wanted to create a relaxed, casual atmosphere of friendship and fellowship that can enjoy the journey through Atreia together. It is our belief that a game should be fun, and not a second job. If you need any help with anything let one of the Centurions or the Brigade General know and one of us will be happy to help.

See you in Atreia! Happy gaming!!

Fallout New Vegas : experience

Claudiah, Nov 8, 10 5:46 PM.
 If you loved Fallout 3, you're going to love this. If you hated it or weren't interested enough to give it a shot, you're going to be more confused than ever what all the fuss is about.

You start out in a small side town in the desert after being shot in the head! Some how you recover though after being rescued by a robot and patched up by a Doctor...I wont ruin the whole beginning, but afterwards you start your search for who it was that shot you and get back a poker chip that he stole.

In a sense, Fallout 3 players know exactly what to expect here. You'll walk the vast expanses between towns, half purposefully and half just exploring, taking on odd jobs and bigger missions. All the while, you're deciding what kind of courier you're growing, be it a science whiz who's great with a pistol or a fast talker who packs a mean wallop with a sledgehammer. 

Those decisions aren't quite as significant this time around as New Vegas introduces magazines that can give a 10-point (or 20, with the right perk) bump to any skill. It's not enough to turn a Helen Keller into Annie Oakley, but it does help to de-emphasize super high levels of specialization in any one field. It makes for a more flexible experience, albeit one less tailored to your character type.

Obsidian hasn't even fixed the kludginess inherent to Fallout 3. The camera still gets stuck in the wrong location for dialog sequences and A.I. pathing is still comically unnatural. If I were looking at Fallout: New Vegas as a product, I'd say it's shocking that it's being released to the public in this state. 

But as an experience ... well, tech problems are enough to take you out of it occasionally, but not to write the whole thing off. Heck, I bet technical failures are all but an oddly endearing series hallmark for some of you; I know I'd be lying if I said I didn't get an odd kick out of the lousy pathing. Sorry, other glitches: You're still obnoxious. 

Paradoxically, New Vegas doesn't make good on much new on any front, and it takes a hit both as experience and product for it. As fond as I am of the idea of an alternate reality Fallout 3, we shouldn't forget that game was released in late 2008, and Obsidian's contribution to the franchise looks and feels every day of two years old, maybe more. But it's still a giant, cool, twisted, funny world to explore, chock full of a staggering number of adventures. Is that really the sort of experience you can afford to pass up?

Black Ops coming out tonight last words?

Claudiah, Nov 8, 10 5:36 PM.
Despite the furor from PC gamers towards Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Treyarch has stated that the inclusion of dedicated servers in Call of Duty: Black Ops wasn't something that the studio spent a lot of time deliberating over.

Speaking with PC Gamer, Treyarch head of PC development Cesar Stastny responded to recent backlash claiming that the studio is, at its heart, a true PC developer. "We never went away from dedicated servers," said Stastny. "We had dedicated servers in our last title, we had planned on dedicated servers for our subsequent title all along, so we haven't actually wavered on that at all."

Statsny believes the studio is making a "true PC title," and that the project is "really important for the studio" to show support for the PC gaming community.

"We are a PC developer. I've been running a dedicated PC team since the beginning of this project. We had one last project. We are making a true PC title here and I think it's a really important platform for our studio, and I'm also really thrilled that we can support the PC community as much as we can."
