Lord of the Rings Online Goes free to play

Picture from
I remember when i saw DDO go free to play, tried it and can't say i liked it, but that's not what this is about.  Turbine's other title, LOTRO, will now be following suit and go F2P and after playing the beta, i think this is at least something to try if you ever found any MMO decent.
Like DDO, it has an in-game store used to purchase upgrades for your account (additional playable classes/adventure packs/additional bags for all characters to name a few) or character upgrades (items and stat buffs).  These points (Turbine Points) are obtained by either buying them, or earning them though the completion of Deeds (achievements with real rewards).
The only, lets say problems, i have with this game is that it has no addon system, you can only track 5 quests (including deeds) at a time,a better LFG system would be nice, and a moderate balancing of stat numbers would be nice.  Questing is really easy, most quests give you all the location information you need to effectively level.
The game will be fully released the 10th and there is some early access for beta participents, so if anyone wants to hit me up online, check the information below

Character Name:  Methoras
Server:  Dwarrowdelf

Note: I only had 1 problem, but they slowly started coming back to me

This is a mod I found on Team Fortress 2 a long time ago, unofficially called SourceCraft.  Like most mods on the source engine it uses SourceMod.  There are not many mods like SourceCraft, namely because it's a member of a group called Jiggly's Fun House by the name of Naris.  This mod is based of the War3Source mod, that already adds a few abilitys such as damage boosts and some castable skills, and adds much more to it. The most extravigant ability is seeker projectiles (Rockets/Arrows/Pills/Needles/and Flaming Tampons) but you shouldn't have to worry about them too much (well, unless you come across one of them kids that had mommy and daddy pay for all their levels).  Other special abilities include flying sentries, the "bubble of doom" and just the general ability to seemingly 1-hit any person regardless the situation.  At any rate I hope you give this mod a try and enjoy it as much as i do.

BTW: The picture shown is the perspective of a red pyro that used a mole to get into blu's spawn
