my difinition of noob is i dont like u, either u are better then me or u are worst them me

Buying spins make you a bad person...don't do it. It's like buying nukes for North Korea.

Well if it bothers you that the game is more fun now, then you can go cry in a corner. :shame:

your article was the equivalent of a circumcized porcupine

The only thing wrong with it is the lack of a percentage for when you need to stroke it.

I personally can't imagine how they'd ever incorporate George Sampson's dance moves into runescape...

That video was interesting, but I didn't really see any of the hints Jagex was hinting might be in there, if you know what I mean.

"Fight for what you believe in, and believe in what you're fighting for." Can games be art?

I've never heard of him before, but he seems like a nice enough kidadult. It was neat to see their tank out and about and the wall of bosses at the duel arena. I also wonder how his dancing could be incorporated. Probably SOF purchases or loyalty points or however. They have dumber stuff in there already.

Maybe they release the emote to celebrate the 200m accounts bots created. Everything does not have to be unlocked or bought.

The faith is great within this one... The dark side has yet to sink its tendrils of whiny cynicism into his hopeful mind... Wait... *reads strike-through* -too late...

Not fond of celebrities promoting video games.

Does it work? Who played WOW because of Mister T and Chuck Norris commercials?

It just shows they have more cash than they know what to do with.

For me personally, I can't think of a time when a celebrity promoting a product made me want to go out and buy it.

If anything I do the opposite.

He just successfully trolled you with "courtesy" and managed to get a reaction out of you. Lol

Well, Jagex apparently saw this guy played Runescape and invited him over. Resulted in a cheap promotion for the game. I can understand it from Jagex' viewpoint, even though I've never heard of the guy.

As much as I've liked the graphics updates so far... :wall:

 

Co-insides with the Bandos Helm coming out, I guess.

The YouTube video wasn't a commercial. How do you know they paid him to "pomote" it as opposed to being invited to see the studios or even Sampson himself ASKING to go there. He is a veteran player afterall.

I find it hard to believe, to be honest. I think the image it's to give off is that he's a regular player with an interest in the game.. But I can't help but think it's scripted and he was given something for his part.

It was a promotional video.

Or do you think he makes home movies by splicing in sections of himself reflecting on his experiences along with scripted events like the tank ride and a nice jagex logo at the end?

You know if Jagex really cared about global warming (which they keep shoving in our faces), then they wouldn't be burning gas to joyride in a 10 ton vehicle on cobblestone streets.

But, hey this green trend is all about pointing out what is wrong with what other people have and not with yourself.

Personally, while I don't really care who plays what game, I always find it neat when celebrities "out" themselves as players of certain games.

 

For example:

[Robin] Williams is an avid enthusiast of games' date=' even naming two of his children after game characters. He named his daughter after Princess Zelda from The Legend of Zelda action-adventure game series.[43'][44][45] They both have even been featured in an ad for the Nintendo 3DS remake of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.[46] On this note, his son may have been named after Cody from the beat 'em up game Final Fight.[47] He also enjoys pen-and-paper role-playing games and online video games, recently playing Warcraft 3, Day of Defeat, Half-Life,[48] and the first-person shooter Battlefield 2 as a sniper.[49] He was also previously a fan of the Wizardry series of role-playing video games.[50]

On January 6, 2006, he performed live at Consumer Electronics Show during Google's keynote.[51] In the 2006 E3, on the invitation of Will Wright, he demonstrated the creature editor of Spore while simultaneously commenting on the creature's look: "This will actually make a platypus look good."[52] He also complimented the game's versatility, comparing it to Populous and Black & White. Later that year, he was one of several celebrities to participate in the Worldwide Dungeons & Dragons Game Day.[53]

Breakdance emote. Greyed out, presumably it's part of Solomons shop which will require you to BUY it with real money instead of loyalty points.

Along with Breaking Wind, Gravedigger, Mahjarrat Transformation, and Frog Animation, all of them costing a bit over $2.00/emote
