snarp: small cute androgynous android crossing arms and looking very serious (Default)
Sometimes with unexciting monsters/dudes with dull color palettes inside them. Sad, cynical people are hanging around nearby saying, "kill the monsters, NOT THAT IT WILL HEAL MY CRUSHED SPIRIT."

I guess this is how SF in general works now, and it's natural to expect it to extend to the MMOs. But shouldn't there be, like, at least one that's actually fun? It seems really screwed up to me that even the Star Wars MMO is just an endless march of woe. For Christ's sake, it's the series about a doofy farm boy having laser swordfights on spaceships and hanging out with cute puppets.

In the popular consciousness, has space just become a font of endless disappointment? There's no sense of exploration and nothing's beautiful, it's all just brainwashing, environmental devastation, and war. It's not even didactic, just resigned.

1) Do the tutorial mission!

2) Do the first three career-path mission sets! They will be easy and will give you the same items over and over! You can sell the extras?

2a) At the end they will recommend you someone to visit next! That’s good, because there are seventy billion star systems in this game, and ones that are level-appropriate are right next to ones that are for ninjas piloting the Death Star!

3) Do the advanced military career-path mission set! All the battles will be easy, and on the second-to-last one you will get an awesome new spaceship!

4) The last battle will be really hard and your awesome new spaceship will be destroyed.

5) Maybe you can beat the last tutorial mission if you train some new abilities?

5a) (Abilities are trained in real-time. It will take at least another twenty-four hours for your character to learn the relevant ones.)

6) In the meantime, you can go visit the person the other tutorial agents mentioned in 2a!

6a) Wait, the game did not save that person’s name to your address book, and it’s not like you wrote it down.

6b) it’s not in the wiki either wtf

7) Set your character to spend the night training “Complain On Blog” to level 4.

I want to go out in the snow, but I’m afraid to. I’m afraid because there’s a small swimming pool out in the yard somewhere… and I can’t tell exactly where.

Someone stop me from playing EVE Online and watching Soul Eater all day. I think it likely that neither one is a good idea on its own, but they’re particularly unharmonious in combination. I’m going to name a spaceship something like “SYMMETRY!,” and then someone named NeMeSiN will destroy it and send me a misogynistic message explaining why they did so. And I’ll want to apologize to Death the Kid for letting the symmetry get destroyed again.

Death the Kid is my favorite character. His voice was giving me weird signals, so I looked it up, and he’s Tamaki from Ouran. Things somehow make more sense now that I know that. I just looked up Black ★ Star, and he’s Excel, which is obviously also good.
