Regarding the takeover ads, I was in Europe on a work trip last week and the ads for this site over there are completely different (and in different languages).

One prominent ad was for a dating site, in German, with stereotypical half-naked muscular Herr and blond almost-nekkid teutonic Fraulein. Top of the page and the right hand side banner. Superimposing those images onto the Bluesnews geekfest was pretty bizarre. I should have taken a picture.

Then again, I was in France when I saw that one. Those frenchies, eh. Shocking.

Only problem I'm having is with annoying respawns

I think the last time I played, I turned those off (not positive)...I know I turned off gun degradation.


If you can remember how, let me know!

In the meantime, my Guardian will be rolling through GW2 zones like a Sherman tank. That class sure is overpowered.

Scroll down to the part about user.cfg. I think that's it' but it's been awhile. That also shows how to turn off weapon degradation, which always annoyed the fuck out of me.



Great, thanks nin!

Speaking of spiritual successors to System Shock, I'm thinking Dishonored looks like a convergence of SS2, Thief and Deus Ex. Saw some gameplay vids today and boy does it look good. Think I'll have to get it, then play it when the kids and Mrs. Sauron are asleep.

Did you try that patch a few weeks ago for SS2? Works great under Win7!

I've installed it, and also added the high-resolution models from the Rebirth mod. Only problem I'm having is with annoying respawns - at this point I don't really want to replay the game in its full intensity as look at it in all its updated glory.

Not playing SS2 much since I'm addicted to GW2. Just hit level 23 on my main but I also have a few alts - and yes I know I level slow.

2. Re: Guild Wars 2 Halloween Plans Oct 17, 2012, 11:45 sauron
 
I'm having a wonderful time in GW2, ran a dungeon for the first time last night - the Font of Rhand. The pickup group I was with all turned out to be MMO vets so it went very smoothly, and I really had a lot of fun.

Best of all, the group came together organically as the result of a chain of world events - the dungeon only opens when the chain is completed. Folks came spontaneously for the events and stayed for the dungeon, and completing the final boss was really very satisfying.

The events took about half an hour and the dungeon another hour, with no waiting around looking for a group. Fun, efficient gaming - that's how it should be done. Very impressed.

That review of Riders of Rohan is very impressive. I'm only playing GW2 right now but the rest of my guild has jumped back to LOTRO for the Rohan expansion, and they are having a REALLY good time. They keep telling me how fun it is on Teamspeak (the main guild channel covers both games).

Sounds like Turbine delivered the goods.

Hey, sauron... the more I look at your avatar the more I swear it looks like the text beneath the eye says "kittens"

Oh wow, you're right...


You guys only just noticed? Shame on you!

Anyhow, these are bad, evil kittens. They're not even that fluffy.



These kittens?


Exactly those.

Never trust kittens. They're the devil's spawn.

That's right, 16 years, which I think is probably like 100 in internet years.

Seriously!

Congrats to you, Blue, and thank YOU for the many years of awesome updates!



Seconded/thirded! Congrats Blue!

LOL. I'd give you a cookie, but not sure your GI tract could handle it right now.

Note to self - read before hitting Enter. Also, posting from tablet is a bit bugged. Bluesnews needs a mobile app so I can lie in bed and still spam the forum!

Guys, do you ever learn?

Of course the game is getting rave reviews. It's exactly the type of game that does so: one that pays lip service to classic games while still making the game, ahem, streamlined enough for journalists to understand and finish it. Deus Ex: HR being a recent example.

Now that I'm over 40 with kids, I see nothing wrong with that. However, being over 40 with kids means I'm not going to pay $60 for it either. Putting it on my buy-a-year-from-now-after-I-finish-Skyrim-and-BL2-and-Black-Mesa-and-DE:HR list.

^You and me both. Even undead sorcerers get old and have kids. And those little orcs sure are expensive.

I'm having waaaaaaaaaay too much playing GW2 to try anything else right now, and had honestly forgotten about this title. Plus, uh, Harvey Smith. But when Metacritic and (especially) Kotaku both light up like this, you have to at least take notice. Sounds like it's pretty great.

I think this pun in the Gamespy review was unintentional but it made me chuckle nonetheless.

If you've been gaming for that long, then you're probably too old to be making posts like this.

What was that about being too old for gaming? I'll be a gamer to the grave, baby.

If by skill, you mean twitchfest gameplay not unlike console button mashers like Mortal Kombat, well, you can have it. Been there, done that.

If you're playing it that way, you're doing it wrong. It plays like a cross between MMO and FPS. As such, it requires a mix of the skill sets used for both genres.
