23 purchaces since the sale started. 18 of those are for me, one went to my sister(SR3 Full package), the other 3 to a buddy of mine who joined PCGMR recently.

So, the sale has been okay, but one thing to remember is that it's been a fairly slow and low release cycle so far this year.

Oh they've been saying it a lot longer than that. Particularly if you were a follower of Thulsa Doom.
Ah well then. But I'm a follower of Gir Doom.

New study finds it too soon to tell if ice sheet loss is accelerating? But here I thought that they had this all figured out already, haven't they been saying that along with DoooM and DOOOOM and DOOOOOOOOOOM for the last 25 years?

With the 320.xx drivers Firefix locks up the whole laptop for minutes at a time, and I get sudden drops into single digit fps that won't stop until I quit the game and restart. (Any game. GW2, XCOM, etc..)
Well I wasn't using it in a mobile setup but I had exactly the same problem, in fact it was so bad that it hardlocked my machine several times while the drivers tried resetting itself.

Something fubared with the drivers. So back with the 314.22's and everything is fine. Seems like everything from the 450's through to the 580's are experiencing hardlocks with that last driver set. Though not everyone, but enough people are.

Why hello there!


For the record, I'm really happy to see that. Is that for real?

It is.
Awesome, just so awesome. Oh and I see on the SR4 website the highest voted legislation action is..."Send Genki to the UN as ambassador." Win!

Happy Birthday Cutter, you can have the free sample of Viagra I got at the doctor's officer on my last visit (it's missing one, but dear lord I could drive steel through titanium that night!).

Okay, I'm stealing that.

And happy birthday Cutter.

Nice Jerykk. Think I'll wait for DS3 to drop a bit more before I buy it though, especially based on reviews.

Damn right man. Though, they have to live up to the original and they seem...seem to be exceeding that.

Side note, this trading card thing is hilarious. If Valved traded in software retail for crack cocaine dealing, I think they'd have half the world hooked in the first week with their sneaky marketing.
Yep. I've made a fair bit of money selling the things I'm not even collecting them.

They aren't and they never have been, although people throw that out there really often. The majority of their players aren't in a market that pays $15 a month to play; NA+EU numbers are more like around 3-3.5 million and have been dropping. The majority of active accounts in the game are in Asia and aren't paying a $15 a month fee to play the game.
Considering that in Asia they're paying between $13-17.40USD/mo? Yeah...pretty sure they're still raking in the money.

So why doesn't he go to Argentina? If it was good enough for the nazis and every other major criminal....
Next you'll be saying why didn't he stay in the US, so he could be railroaded by secret courts and sealed FISA warrants.

Did you skip over MC?
Our guilds first Rags kill was rogues, plate, and healer resist only. All the other ranged DPS did without. When we got better at it, we were our servers first 2min Rags kill no resist gear, with only a touch of BWL gear.

Things like that, were fun. It's kinda like the night we had double binding drop. What burned my ass in all of vanilla raiding? I never had my T2 helm drop, and neither did any other mage in our guild. I got my T3 set completed before that and most had a mix of T2/3 before we saw our first helm fall.

Your guild example from what I saw in game was rare. My guild has survived six years by being casual with some serious raiders off and on. Yet, the main reason it has survived has been the leadership and overall quality of the members who wanted to make things work.
Well that's the thing right? It comes down to the guild, the leadership of the guild, and in turn class leads to do their work to make sure everyone is on the same page. By the time Wrath was finishing up the guild I was in was a top 50. Kara and SSC were both quite fun..in my book. What ended up killing raiding for me was stupid gimmicks.

Sure.. if unending grinds for resist gear and soul-wrenchingly tedious attunement quests (over and over and over for new members) and having 15 useless people out of 40 were your idea of fun.

Sure. How're those rose-colored glasses fitting?

/backs away slowly
Farming resist gear war hard? I guess you didn't have any good guild alliances didja? And if anything, the attunement quests were useful for ensuring that those "15 people" weren't useless.

So...I guess that would be a guild problem wouldn't it? We had an exceptionally low overturn rate, because we had a main raiding section and a backup section for those who couldn't raid full time. Worked out well.
