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!

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.

Is this like madlibs where we fill in the word? Oh boy, I'll play! How's this:

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.

Mists of Pandaria Review on Gamespy

The experience as a whole bears the weight of age despite the freedom granted by the new setting

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

Yeah, I don't really even notice. I'd put in my own name and signature but it would take a while and I'm usually just too busy. Eh, maybe just this once...

Errr, Anachronox? Wizardry 8? Those are two of the finest RPGs ever made in my book.

Ya, both of those were pretty good.

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.

The biggest problem with Panda is Guild Wars 2. Going back to a quest log from dynamic questing is jarring.

Yeah, I played FFXI for 8 years on and off up until June of this year. Loved it to pieces. But after playing GW2, I'm hooked. The design is so good, there's no way I could ever go back to a more traditional MMO. It would be like going back in time.

Cliff, we love you. Great games. But please STOP IT with the hair dye.

Also, maybe get a shave and look at the wardrobe (but not so much you turn into a suit).

If you ignore that last part we may forgive on the basis of the original UT demo and Facing Worlds. Or maybe not.

I love the way you pay $60 for the game, and now the DLC is up to half that price (I'm looking at you too, Borderlands).

How do these people not see that when they do this, it just encourages people to wait a year, and get the GOTY edition with everything for $30?


Yep, either that or just don't buy it at all. If significant game content is withheld at release, it is much more productive to look elsewhere. There are plenty of wonderful options on the PC this Fall that don't need that kind of BS to succeed.

Uh, plus it's lolUbisoft. No thanks.

I still have an old WRT54G running in the basement. Thing has been rock solid for 6 years. The only problem with Linksys/Cisco is that they love to play model lottery, some slight model variations will have half the memory and etc. The newer Netgear stuff is very hackable and pretty reliable in my experience, I didn't care for their older stuff. D-Link is bottom barrel, lots of hardware issues and their firmware is a disaster.

Yep, that's right on the money, I agree with everything you said.

I too have a WRT54G that also still functions - those things never die. They made Linksys' reputation in the household market.

I'd suggest the Netgear WNDR3700 which is dual band, supports OpenWRT/DD-WRT firmware and is fairly powerful. Asus also makes some good routers as well as 2Wire.

Steer clear of D-Link.

I have a Linksys EA4200 dual-band router and am happy with it. My repeater is by Netgear and is a bit flaky. I'll probably replace it with a Linksys PLWK400 soon.

And yeah, don't buy D-Link.

I tried a dual-band router to extend coverage in my apartment, but the problem turned out to be a load-bearing wall in the way of the signal. The place is L-shaped and the router is in one end of it.

A repeater seems to have fixed the problem, bouncing the signal around the corner of the L, but the repeater I have (Netgear) isn't that great. Anyone know if Cisco makes a better one?

Anyone who plays a Necro as a main here? Curious to see what they think of those changes, I know that class was really in need of some tuning.

I'd like to know this as well. Main is currently a Guardian, and I also have an Elementalist. Mesmer and Necromancer both look creepy-cool but I heard the latter is a bit underpowered.

How many of you Bluesies are still actively engaged with GW2?

I'm still playing regularly, and I have no plans to stop in the foreseeable future.

^This. I'm on most days for a couple of hours and will be doing the same for the foreseeable future. Really like the game, it's great. My guild plays LOTRO and GW2 and we all use Teamspeak, and people jump between the two games all the time, it's pretty fun.

I did take a couple of evenings to play with the new version of SS2 (which is freaking awesome, especially with the Rebirth high-poly model mod added to it). I'll probably do the same with Morroblivion. But my default at the moment is definitely GW2.

Here are some shots of the Morrowind-to-Skyrim engine and Oblivion-to Skyrim, although these mods are not yet finished:
