Yes, but most of the people here know that impeachment doesn't necessarily mean conviction. But Clinton should have been convicted.
What did Clinton really do to deserve impeachment. They couldn't use anything against him from Watergate or pretty much anything else. He's only guilty of having an extra-marital affair and lying about it! What guy isn't gonna lie about if he can?
Now Bush on the other hand has done many things deserving of Impeachment, but it's like the country as a majority is too scared to say it. If you say anything against him or most of his policies, you're labeled a traitor and a lover of terrorists (look at the Dixie Chicks, all Natalie Maines said was that she was "ashamed President Bush is from Texas)! :cool:

Since joining the forums, I've aged 6 years (birthday's in December), grown nearly 5 in, got out of the Navy after 5 years, bought a car, started managing an online baseball team, and had three girlfriends (not at the same time).

There were a few others, but not really worth mentioning. ;) :cool:

It sounds to me like you've never played the trilogy. Many of the spells were the same, yes, but some were replaced. For example, Exile was the only game with a recharge wand spell.

You might wanna look at who you're talking to. I'm pretty sure he was talking about most of the spells since about 95% ARE the same!

Just to refresh everyone's memory, the sticking-out-tongue emoticon is present, indicating that a joke has been made. Joke. Fun. Ha Ha.

:D

In hindsight, now I see clearly :o , but in the context of what was happening, I never really paid much attention to the graemlin :confused: . I owe you a huge appology Salmon. I believe I will still about this from the higher-ups. :(

Solberg, who is normally very friendly, pretty much exploded.
My anger was not directed at the people who loved the Exile Trilogy. (To get the insight on this, go to the post 'Geneforge/Avernum players')My anger was not even directed at a NOOB. It was directed at Salmon for calling me a NOOB when I was only making a harmless joke about Ash Lael's tag. But that doesn't make what I said and how I said it and more right. I appologized in the other post and now I want to extend my appology here. I will keep my anger in check.

But truth be told...things aren't gonna be the same after today at the Forums. Too many people are fed up with some of the idiocy of some people. (My rant on the other post can be included)

I have noticed mentions of week long bannings. If that is what I have to do to make up for what I did, then I accept my punishment. Thank you for your patience in reading my long posts.

I appologize for losing my cool, I don't usually do that. When the talk was about the games I was calm yet firm. But when I made a little joke about Ash Lael's tag and Salmon called me a NOOB...that is what set me off!

I want to appologize to anyone that was offended by the rant and will edit it to suit the needs of the board. I like all the games that Spiderweb makes. I'm a firm follower of Spiderweb Software.

I'm gonna issue another appology on Hawkwind's post too just in case everyone doesn't read it here. Again, my sincere appologies. :(

Oh and Salmon, you might've had to help pay my salary with your taxes...but I had to pay taxes too!

THIS EDIT OF MY 350th POST USED TO CONTAIN ANGRY RANTS. THE '*' HAVE BEEN REMOVED. THE REGULARLY USED :cool: SIGN WILL BE REPLACED BY A :mad: SIGN.

Originally written by Zeviz:

25 people have voted in the poll. 10 people (including me) have posted saying that they prefer Exile.

So looks like Exile is winning over either of the official options. :P

Why...cause 10 people supporting Exile said they loved it more than Avernum. Get real. Do you really think Jeff is gonna make another Exile-like game? Heck NO!! Exile is outdated. Get over yourselves and move on. Just because the people who disagree with you are too SCARED to say so doesn't validate your point.

When you buy a new game from anywhere, do you by an Exile-like type game or do you buy an Avernum-like type game?

Besides, I've noticed for all the 'love' that you have for the Exile Trilogy, that the forum seems to be a little empty, why is that? Alcritas came back about 7 people that replied to his "Boo" didn't even know who he was!

As I've said before and will continue to say again, I like to play Exile. Even to this day, sometimes. But you've got to be realistic, Exile is outdated and games like Avernum and Geneforge are the games of today. That's just the way it is! So please spare the drama

No Kidding! You don't say. If you REALLY read what I said, I was talking about how the poll wouldn't include Blades of Exile just the Exile series (or Trilogy). Avernum was included in the poll, but Blades of Avernum wasn't...get the point.

I believe your point was slaughtered. Three people posted to say that Exile should have been in the poll, and four to say that they greatly prefer it to Avernum.

And if you think most of Exile's spells are useless, you just don't know how to use them properly. Of all the spells in BoE, I can think of maybe two that I've never found any use for.
If you count BoE, then my point is false, but the post was calling for 'series', not including expansions. ;)

Well did you do what Dikiyoba told you too!

Well anyway, my name's Solberg. Welcome to the Spiderweb Forums. Sit back and rock awile. Leave your sanity at the door with the others. Listen to the advice given by people of high esteem (not me, but surely someone else).
1. Don't post in all CAPS, it means your yelling and people might take offence to that. :mad:
2. Learn from your mistakes.
3. Learn from the mistake of others.
4. Read the CoC!
5. Don't call yourself an Idiot, it'll give others the invitation to call you that too. :cool:

So you and those 'plenty of people' would rather play Exile than Avernum. :confused: Please. About 40% of the regular people here have probably never even played Exile, :( let alone would choose it over Avernum.

As I said before, I still like and play Exile to this day, :D but let's be real. Most of the people who like/love Exile are still gonna choose Avernum because of the things listed above. Now tell me that's a lie! :cool:

That's a lie. :cool:

Exile kicks Avernum's scrawny isometric butt.

Well, maybe the % is closer to 30, but I believe I made my point.

I hate to say it, but if Exile was included, would anyone had voted for it? I love the game, but...
1. Since Exile and Avernum have pretty much the same storyline, but Avernum fixed some discrepancies, that cancels out Exile.
2. Avernum has a better engine, graphics, and interface, again canceling out Exile.
3. Exile does have way more spells, but most are pretty much useless. Avernum's spells are all practical.
4. Although the monsters are pretty much the same, Avernum gave them more abilities.

So in conclusion, why speculate why Exile wasn't included when it is indeed inferior! Don't get me wrong, I still love to play the Exile Trilogy every now and again, but Avernum is the better choice. :cool:
