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.

Yeah some of the deals are rather 'meh' I picked up walking dead for a buddy of mine from gamefly for $9.88 two days ago.

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.

WOW...miss the friends, but I don't miss the game.

I miss both, but it's particular parts of the game that I miss. Pre-TBC raids, TBC raids and instances. Sadly when they made it "easier" they dropped the entire quality of the game.

The emulated PSX version is a 1000x better, due to graphical mods you can install. You couldn't pay me to play this half-assed 15 year old port
You know the PC-CD version is even better right? No emulation required on top.

Anno 2070 is on sale. $20.09 for the base game, or $33.49 for all DLC included. Not a great deal, since I picked up the complete pack for far less.

I hate youtube. Ever since they did that update a number of months ago, movies never fully play...always stop with like 5% left.....happens on numerous machines.
Yeah well the 'tube is a mess with cacheing issues and has been for months. So I'm not surprised, have you tried switching over to and then back out of the h.264/html5 beta? It's worked a few times for me on stubborn machines.

Rogue Legacy is worth every penny of it's current $15 price tag. I've already sank 20 hours into it, with at least 40 more on the way.
I'd never even heard of it until this thread, damn looks like fun though.

As for FTL and luck? Luck really doesn't have much to do with it. You need to play aggressively though, and even the stupidest builds can get you through the game. The last few times I won, it was with a laser-cloak build, no missiles or drone support. First time I beat it, it was with a double ion-canon build and drones.

More people don't own it than do. I'm one of them.

Meh, anyway, nothing good so far on GMG sale either.
Really? It's a hell of a fun game, and pretty addicting too. Even the music is quite good.

I'm not impressed with the GMG sale either, sadly by the time their site came back up yesterday the "free UFO: Aftershock" giveaway had already passed.

Has anyone gotten an email from them to indicate that Uplay has been breached?
No, because Uplay wasn't breached, but the forum(s) or some forums/websites were. The message that Blue posted was the one that I received from them minus the reset link.

Nope. Pretty much everyone from the lowest company to NGO's to government organizations get hit.

I'm up for a new achievement. The ultra-penetrator beatdown, with full gimp mode!

Must bead down 20 gimps, while dressed as a gimp yourself.
