Too bad he doesn't feel that same obligation for, oh, every other SOE game out there.

Without a healthy dose of Star Trek 'fanboyism' this game gets old quick.
Guilty as charged.

I'd definitely be up for a Temple of Elemental Evil remake, or something involving Iuz, or starting with White Plume Mountain, or...

Yeah, I'm a Greyhawk fanboi, I bluntly admit it.

Don't blame the punter, blame the defense for even letting it get to that point in the first place. If Tuck wraps up Vick on that 3rd down pass to Maclin, that punting situation doesn't happen.

That being said, I'm no Eagles fan, but I was cheering my ass off when Vick started that comeback. Mostly because I grabbed him in Week 2 on my fantasy football team.

Cutter: 2 points. One, there is no other Raiders. Period. (I loved them beating Pretty Boy Tebow and the Broncos yesterday.) Two, Vick did the crime, he admits he did it, he knows he did it. Let it go.

Good victory against copyright trolls. Now if we can start using that against the troll monopolies that go by RIAA and MPAA.

Good to see the haters still around in force... really, if you don't like something, why post on it? You hate the game, we get it.

That being said, this game has slowly been evolving into what the players have been hoping for. Yes, I'll admit launch wasn't great. But when you have Anarchy Online as the measuring stick for All Things Sucky At Launch, anything is better than that. But with the things that have been added to this point, it's getting there. I think that launch was just intended to get the base game out, so they could work on things and release it without the constraints of a set time schedule. And so far, they've done pretty good. Yes, there's still quite a few bugs in the game, but what game doesn't have them?

TSA... the agency that doesn't need to exist. It only does because we're afraid to ask the main target group for this crap a few questions. Because that would be *gasp!* profiling...

So much for them saying they'd never do it in any form, which, if you look, Zymurgist stated at least three times. Can only think of the cash cow this is going to turn into.

Not happening. I took them up on their 7 free days, but all I did was send a mass mail to my friends, saying "this is what I'm doing now, join me there if you want to". That and slapped another 18 asshats on ignore just out of principle. And I did that in 10 minutes. That alone tells me how far this game has sunk, not that it had very far to go in the first place.

Thanks to Dez Bryant, that game ended up a lot closer than it should have been.

Considering the wonderful lagfest that's been going on in the game over the last few days, and the belief of some of the dev team that it's "not that big of a deal", despite the fact that it's now five days without a fix, I have to wonder how well-timed this announcement is.

You and me both. Thank goodness it'll sponge all the whiny ass-kissing fanbois from every other game and leave the ones that truly want to be in each game alone. I personally hope it makes AO launch look like a tea party.

Columbus, bah. I'll celebrate 9 October, which I did. Taken from Wikipedia: "In 1964 the United States Congress authorized and requested the president to proclaim October 9 of each year as "Leif Erikson Day".

I have an idea that things are being done that some of the developers may not like and things are being shaken up as a result. It's just a feeling on my part, of course.

Lately though, the forums have been amazingly quiet in terms of developer posts. The devs of COX have always had a closer relationship with the community than any other MMO I know.

In the past few months, that has dried up considerably.

Additionally, Christopher Bruce(one of the most vocal of the bunch) had stopped posting on the forums and was refusing PMs from the community on the boards. He gave the excuse that he needed to concentrate on work and could not continue his board presence at the same time, but now I wonder if there was something else brewing.

Cryptic had a very nice layer of transparency when it came to customer relations. Problem is, and I noticed this almost across the board at successive ComicCons, their egos were getting way too big for such a small company. Chris Bruce, honestly, was a decent guy at one time, but the last time I saw him, was nothing but a Grade-A jackass, barely talking with anyone, sitting with that smug look on his face. Hope they erase Back Alley Brawler, Marauder, and Praetor White from the game permanently, I'd just as soon forget him.

They kind of did. He's not lead designer anymore. That position went to Melissa Bianco(War Witch). She was the one who spearheaded most of the Going Rogue work. Which was very well done for the most part.
Good, because Positron is a Grade-A idiot, almost up there in the Clueless Meter with Smedley.

I truly fail to see why using the Taliban as an playable enemy force is so offensive? Is it truly more offensive than letting people play as the Nazis (COD2, Battlefield 42) or the Vietcong (BF Vietnam, others). Hell, the Army's own game used head wrapped terrorists as a playable enemy. Countless other games have used the middle east as a setting.

Are there any military or ex-military out there that can explain this to me? Do you support or oppose this? Why?

Try telling anyone that's lost a loved one in Afghanistan that the use of the Taliban name is acceptable.

I had a similar problem with my neighbor for almost 2 years. Everything I did wasn't good enough for him. Then I bought my uncle's Mossberg 14-gauge shotgun, and made sure he saw me cleaning it the next time he came over to complain. Haven't heard a peep since, this was almost 4 years ago.

Not saying you should do the same, Blue, just throwing my two cents about odd neighbors.
