The superscripted number incidentally being the telephone number of the Islington flat where Arthur went to a fancy dress party and first met—and totally blew it with—Trillian.

I can't say I'll miss his acting career but that kind of sucks. Hopefully he died before the car went up in flames though. Burning to death is probably the worst way to go.

SKYRIM CANNOT BE STOPPED! Apparently it doesn't matter what the sale price actually is, it'll just be #1.

I finally bought it yesterday and the first thing I proceeded to do was tango with a bear in a cave.

So if (when?) Newegg gets their appeal, will it go right back to this court room or will it go elsewhere?

Psychonauts was good and all but I doubt they'll get anywhere with a retail release as far as sales are concerned.

I think Duncan Jones has a pretty good handle on what he wants from the Warcraft universe without pissing all over it.

I think this team just likes using the word Alpha and have no plans to release a candidate beyond that.

You have no first hand knowledge of what happened and your assumptions are way off, I was encapsulating a year long process into a tiny text blurb. It happened slowly over time, there were social dynamics involved and as a more casual guild we weren't really prepared for it. Hindsight is always 20/20. [/quote:


Not everyone has the time to put in for raiding, I understand that, and when you mix raiders with casuals (not bad players), it means divisions within the guild which always leads to drama and then collapse. Our guild eliminates this issue by using a type of questionnaire which allows us to find out if a player compliments our style of play and have had no issue with removing toxic players regardless of their ability. Some would say that's a bit much but our guild has been together since the start of TBC which lends me to believe this system works if used.

That said, I think it's a little silly to say that raiders ruin everything just like it's a little silly to say casuals ruin everything.

Fucking raiders ruin everything.

Raiders are not like ants.
Unlike ants, the raiders you describe were invited by your guild leader or an officer.
Unlike ants, your guild allowed them to bring others of their type.
Unlike ants, your guild let them destroy what you built

They were practically handed the keys to the kingdom and were allowed to do as they wanted. Instead of removing them for disrupting your style of play, you let them destroy it. This isn't an issue with raiders, this is more of an issue with the guild you were in to give them so much control.

Check out Grim Dawn , playing it right now actually

http://www.grimdawn.com/index.php

it's only alpha right now but the best ARPG since Diablo 2.

I'd totally be down to play Grim Dawn but the alpha isn't really worth it at the moment. If their beta introduces more content then I would throw money at it. Either way, it's a definite buy when it comes out.

As for PoE, I love the Scion so far with Spectral Throw. Looking forward to picking up a MLP or MP gem to really have some fun with it.

It wasn't exactly a full priced game. Plenty of games have been short with a minimal ending. Eye of the Beholder 1 had one of the shortest endings ever.

I can forgive an abrupt ending if we were talking about a NES game but this game really takes the cake as shown in the tied-in video.

Was this something that was only discovered after it went live on steam and purchasing the product or was it something the devs acknowledged prior to release or in a beta? They could have cut content elsewhere which had less of an impact on the game.

If I got roped in to this, I'd want a refund.

Edit: Not only was it hush hush until it hit Steam but it seems as though some are questioning whether or not this is the exact same copy sent to vloggers and such from some time ago with no updates.

The plot thickens?

They'll just cut them off by IP blocking them and banning whoever uses the product - as they do now.

They only ban the account. Blocking the IP address could potentially allow others within the household to be unable to play, it's far too easy to bypass due to dynamic addresses provided by the ISP, and it's not in their interest to shut down a system that could provide another future sale.
