Lord of the Rings Online immortalized on game show Jeopardy

MMORPG Lord of the Rings Online was the subject of a Jeopardy College Championships question last night.

Apparently the first contestant to ring in has actually been studying in college instead of playing video games.

It’s “fellowship,” in case you were still wondering!

I know I’m REALLY late to comment on this, but anyway:

To all those saying LOTRO would be better with better graphics:
Do you realize that, if they did a complete graphical overhaul, that would probably leave some of you not able to play it because the graphics would be too new for your computer to handle.

pepinocantador Necro Mage MesaSage Greaterdivinity MMO players are the worst. Any tiny thing goes wrong — or doesn’t even go wrong but just turns out differently than they might have liked — and they’ll bite the throat of anybody they can find with any kind of connection to the game’s developers. Or even fails to join in their throat-biting with less than equal enthusiasm.

What a weird world we live in. Attraction only has its basis in
reproduction and yet out of that singular motivation inherent in our
genetic programming, we’ve shamed each other into a rat race of sorts
where if you don’t look a certain way, you won’t attract a mate and are
therefore useless and should be ostracized. Women can’t be too fat or
too thin. Men can’t be too scrawny or too muscular. Both genders have to
have perfect teeth. Society has created an image of perfection on which
everyone is judged. If you don’t fit the mold, you get “bullied” and
“shamed” and if you do fit the mold, you get written off as if you have
it easy. I like to imagine post-apocalyptic scenarios where the
human race is forced back into prioritizing survival over aesthetic
masturbation, where men and women are dirty and smelly and they eat what
they can find and they haven’t had their teeth cleaned since the world
ended. Maybe when we’re all reduced to an equally binary footing where
everything is reduced to living or dying, we’ll stop judging ourselves
and each other. Then it won’t matter if the cosplay chick is actually
hot underneath the elaborate outfit or if the geeky guy stalking her
even knows how to talk to women. All that will matter in the end is if
you can run fast enough from the zombies. C’mon scientists with your
amoral god complexes! Make the zombie apocalypse happen already!
