I was a little perplexed at the lack of E3 coverage on Blues last week.

There was nothing but coverage of E3 here last week.

This is coverage of the coverage.

You need a sarcasm emote. You have a sarcastic clap, but it's not quite the same.

Oops, yeah, if that was sarcasm it went right over my head, which is weird, since it's my native tongue.

The date of registering the domain is a good idea...if that is something that can be located.

That's easy, as there are proper records of such things. The domain was registered on September 20, 1996, but the site wasn't relaunched at the new location until October 9, 1996.

Ok, if you keep whacking the "older news" link you go back to July 31st, 1996?

https://web.archive.org/web/19970204065233/http://bluesnews.com/q-july.html

edit: Well, I tried....

And I appreciate it. But yeah, as I said, that's too late to help us. It just reflects what is still posted here from the time:

Blue (or some of you that are more Internet savvy than I am), isn't there an archive or something that you can access that would allow you to go all the way back to the first published page and examine the time stamp in the code? I know I am totally oversimplifying, but I am trying to describe something that in my head makes sense but since I am not really that familiar with the process it probably makes no sense.

The earliest snapshot of the site as it originally stood is from February 1999, well after all the changes I describe took place. One of the problems of being one of the pioneer sites on the web is that we predated a lot of the efforts to preserve such things.

What about here? https://web.archive.org/web/19961226231646/http://bluesnews.com/

https://web.archive.org/web/19960715000000*/http://bluesnews.com

Good point, they actually got the site on this domain in December '96. Unfortunately, to answer the questions we're working on here, it would have to be from a year or more before that.

Don't feel old, feel wise!

I was going off of the "Established 1995. Over three-quarters of a billion visitors since 1997."

But I think you are right, Blue would know.

Interesting question. I'll post the answer as best I can in an Out of the Blue.

Derp. There was a Sword Coast Legends blurb this past week or something.

There were a couple of stories the week before E3, but this preview was missed.

Those who pointed out that mailed in links are appreciated are correct... certainly preferable to complaints over "skipped" stories.

LOL Blue are you intentionally mislabeling the expansion? This is the 2nd time I've seen you post it with that name..

Damn... I think my brain needs to throw out some old game titles to make room for new ones.

Yeah, that's generally the first "feature" I turn off.


For me it's motion blur.

I'd have to say they are tied for first for me.

The reverse is vsync, which is the first feature I turn on.

Yeah I forgot about Nazeebo, I wouldnt really call him a monster though. That ring of corpses he has is nice, but I hardly see anyone ever pick him on Hero League. An average monster at best...

True enough... I basically play Quickmatch because I feel I don't play healers or warriors very effectively, so I don't want to be in a position of letting a team down by being forced to play one. But yeah, the margins are much tighter in ladder play.

Here is a quick tip for those just getting into the game, the best, read most competitive (Tier1) Heroes currently are:

Ilidan, Jaina, Brightwing, Uther, Muradin, Kal'Theas, Anubarak, Sylvanas, and maybe Valla and Zagara.

Yeah, I just recently started playing Sylvanas who is the first hero I've enjoyed that is actually favored in "the meta." She can be a lot of fun.

Always welcome new Heroes, and it's good that they are Diablo heroes, because the Diablo heroes currently in the game (Diablo, Tyreal, Sonya) with the exception of Valla, are very underpowered.

Don't overlook Nazeebo... he's kind of a monster.

Pics or it didnt ha....oh....

The eye is a little scary. Maybe he's partially blind, and thought Gunnar was a weird smelling deer ("Hey, man, you're following a human there. Watch the fuck out!").

Yeah, at first I thought it might have been some bit of forest stuck to his face (it looks like a chestnut), but it appears to actually be a growth... Don't know if you can tell from the photos, but it's in front of the eye, rather than covering it, but it still must block some of his vision. Not sure what that means long term.

He seemed very young to be on his own, and MrsBlue is worried he's an orphan, so I hope everything works out for him.

Jeepers, 195 and 166 lb for the average US male and female adult respectively - that's really heavy and honestly carries a lot of health risks. America needs to go on a diet!

If that is accurate it means that I weigh less than the average American woman even though I am taller than the average American man.

I've seen a weird trend where millennials call gaming "XBox, PS and Steam".

They don't call it PC Gaming.

Calling Steam a platform like that is happening within the industry. I see it in press releases all the time nowadays.

Is there a link to the video? Blues recap doesn't seem to discuss the story itself or if there is an optional strategic combat camera. What I'd also like to know if there are branching consequences (inXile or CD Projekt level of caliber), updated follower orders, etc. and hopefully no mention of paid modding.
Here

Don't see the video there either. For some reason Bethesda has not posted it yet.

Wait a minute..... wasn't there a DOS-based Ant-sim title back in the mid/late 90s?

There was a isometric lawn, you had to feed queens, build nests, explore, move/fly to different squares of the lawn, deal with lawn mowers, etc.?

Goodness that takes me back. Does anyone else remember this? What was the title name?!

SimAnt.

Right. So, is it okay for me to post something that mocks homosexuality and makes every effort to offend and humiliate gays? How about vegans? No? Why not? That guy with the funny emails seemed to think it was okay to mock Christanity and Easter, so I don't see why he's special and can get away with being intolerant, but I can't.

Wait, what's that you say? The ideology of tolerance is NOT a two way street and those who preach it are not required to live by it? Ohhhh, I see. Yeah, that's what I thought.

As the one who decided to post that, I can't object to your point as strongly as some others have... I thought the humor of the piece was the overwhelming element of it, but the target of the humor being in the majority does not invalidate your point. I also probably would start deleting posts if a religious flame war had emerged, and would have no one but myself to blame, so I will keep that in mind going forward.
