My sister's husband at all of 29 is in chemo today.


Damn. I'm very sorry to hear that, Cutter. I truly hope things get better.

Yeah, me too. He's a great guy but the cancer just doesn't want to seem to let him go Everytime we think we've got it licked something else crops up. It makes me angry more than anything else.

A friend of ours was diagnosed with cancer in her 30's and it turned out she has a genetic predisposition.

It helps her only a little since she is now already screened very regularly as a cancer survivor. However, they also checked for the mutation in her kids, which could end up saving their lives.

I mentioned on here before that I drive an ex-military Land Rover 'lightweight' Air Portable. I sent away for it's military history, which just arrived: she spent her 15 year service with the UK Royal Marines, 40 Commando. How's that for pedigree?!

Nice ride, and great history. Take good care of her and make sure to check the transmission in case of Leadfoot Limeys. :-)

It was the rolled up newspaper. I told you it would work.

It's also super effective on my orcs and goblins, although Shelob needs the weekend edition.

Witcher 1 has pacing problems, in my opinion.

This is true but they make up for it with all the sex and violence. And the boobie cards. Especially those.

Thanks everyone, gonna sleep on it tonight and make a decision tomorrow. Just helps to vent a bit, appreciate it.

Good luck! I love pets - my cat must be the most spoiled animal around. They do indeed become part of the family.

You have a new pet/guest in the house of recent? He may be marking his territory for some reason or another. Hmmmmmm

Did you stop feeding him his favorite treat, disrupted walking schedule, etc?

I usually find that smacking the offending animal with a rolled up newspaper works wonders in situations like these. I'm serious - it's really effective.

Just make sure to use one of the light free/giveaway ones - the aim is to tell him did something wrong and reinforce it without hurting him. Don't use the weekend edition - you'll end up at the vet!

I think I'll tell my broker that if it reaches 92 he should sell (hard to believe there's a joke that old that I've never used here before!).

That joke is so old, the original version was written in the Book of Job.

Heh, we should institute a new rule for incoming Presidents. At the inauguration ceremony, they have to demonstrate they can find their own ass with both hands.

Bush junior would definitely have failed that test. Senior, maybe not. Clinton definitely would have passed but would have failed the supplementary 'don't f*** your interns' test. The gipper? Hmmm.

Would Obama pass it? Not sure, we'll have a better idea after the election, or maybe in 4 years' time.

Thats wishful thinking. I hear Obama's job creation plan has opened a new chopstick making factory in Alabama (not joking) so thats viable.

Obama has spent more in 3 and a half years than Bush did in his entire two terms, refused to cut enough so that the US credit rating would be lowered, and consistently puts his socialism loving cronies in the UN above US citizens. Yeah I really can't wait til all his obamites vote him in again so he can finish what he started in turning the US into a 3rd world liberal utopian welfare state. It'll be so awesome!

Alternatively, we can go back to GW Bush. Yay?

The one thing that bugs me about LOTRO is that it caters to soloing almost too well. MMOs really start to rock when they encourage (but don't force) well-coordinated group play, and LOTRO just doesn't do that early enough. Apparently it finally gets going at endgame, which is supposedly a lot of fun.

With most MMO's design... you can't have one without the other...that is "encouraging grouping without forcing it". The way they do this is by creating content that you can't possibly solo and HAVE TO "Look For Group". That, my friend, is STILL forced grouping... it's just limited to certain content instead of majority of the content like old-school MMO's were.

Guild Wars 2 is the first MMO that I've seen turn this mechanic on it's head. Most of the Content is Coop only (like oldschool), but they've removed the need to "Look For Group", because the overal design promotes coop, instead of making PVE competitive (No Kill Stealing, No Loot Stealing, No having to form a group first, Etc. etc. Just help kill the shit!!!)

This is a fresh approach to a stale genre, IMO, and I enjoy it immensely. Once one has played a "coop approached" MMO instead of the traditional "solo vs. grouping" MMO, I don't think they'll ever go back.

Yeah, I've had a blast with that. And I notice - so far - at any rate that sort of co-operative style play encourages more postive behavior too. People don't have a need to rag on each other and people are always helping out with kills or rezzing each other. A big step in the right direction.

Is that an open beta? Might have to give it a shot if it is. Thanks!

To comment on LOTRO...If they would open up the CREEP side like they have for the freep side...I would go back to it.

I would love to build up an Orc from level 1.


I've tried LOTRO 2-3 times now, and while it's certainty not bad, it doesn't seem to hold my interest...

The group dynamic is one of the things that FFXI was really good at, but Square Enix made grouping almost mandatory so if a tank or healer wasn't online you were SOL. It was too much the other way.

I want to start playing again, but my Steam backlog is so large that I'd feel guilty if I did. Maybe after I finish Deus Ex HR, Witcher 2, and New Vegas. Or at least 2 of them.

I feel exactly the same, except substitute LOTRO for EVE. Having said that, I did download LOTRO again and have been playing it recently, against my better judgement.

MMOs are such enormous timesinks that they even drag us away from our other timesinks that drag us away from work.

After the failure of all the previous 'AAA' licensed WoWclones - Conan, Lotro, Warhammer, etc - it was obvious this was a really bad idea, but I'm glad that didn't stop Bioware from flushing a few hundred million dollars down the toilet to prove it.

Not sure I'd put LOTRO in with those others. Having played a few of them it's the only one that stands out as having a different dynamic and some appreciable depth. And they're still expanding it - Isengard was released recently and Rohan is up next. And the fact my handle on here is Sauron has nothing to do with it *wink*.

But overall, I do agree with you. By this point, everyone's played WoW to the point where they're sick of it. Rather than serve up yet more of the same, developers and their publishers should be looking for the next big thing.

Just put the effort into a co-op version of TES for groups of up to 6 people and that's all anyone could ask for.

I could go for that, instanced Skyrim for up to 6 players co-op plus a central hub would be totally fine. Assuming no cliff racers.

Sure, I could do that as well but why bother? It would just end up with a red *removed* text thanks to you NAZI GESTAPO forum police.


Go ahead. I dare you. If you don't, I'll assume you can't.


Also, be entertaining, not profane. The latter is not a substitute for the former.

Game on, baby. Give it your best shot. Also, try to use words of more than one syllable.

Jesus Christ sauron what are you 12?

College professor, actually, but baiting trolls is ageless and timeless. It's the sport of kings.

To say the least. Nothing like hoping for a bunch of people to be out of work just because you don't like a product. Maybe one day he'll get laid off and a bunch of people will laugh at him for it. It'd be fitting.

Maybe next year when you enter elementary school your reading comprehension will improve. Because I said nothing about "hoping for a bunch of people to be out of work", ya know? I'm hoping for this game to fail just like it deserves. The people can fuck off and go work on some other EA/BioWare piece of shit game... I don't give a fuck. I ain't hoping for anything in that regard.


Also, reported this post for lack of intelligence. Nevermind multiple uses of the word 'fuck' in a single sentence, the braindead content makes my neurons hurt just reading it.
