Tired of it. They better fix the Holiday Globe thing....I still have them in my inventory, have taken pictures just in case, and it appears others have them in their inventory, but I can't select theirs or mine to trade....
Yeah, they've been disabled. I thought that's what was supposed to happen though. Maybe they'll remove them eventually. Same effect either way though really I guess.

I'm going to miss steams voting sales, really enjoyed those...


I'm disappointed that I'm missing 1 more vote for a final snow globe. That and I got #10 like three times in a row hahaha

#10 is the only one I still need. I got a bunch of #5 and #6, among others.

I've got an extra 10, if you need it. But I'm at work...should be home in 4 hours or so (don't think I can trade through the web client at work - I'm in the Blue's steam group).

I'm in the Blue's group too. I probably won't be home until around 7pm CST. Will try to figure out the trade system then, since I haven't used it yet.

At this point I have pretty much everything I want, and already know I won't get around to a lot of it. I'm mostly just buying things when I want to support the developer for doing something cool. Maybe I'll actually get around to playing it eventually, or at least maybe they'll make another cool game and I'll play that

I guess I'm the only one that thinks this looks like it's going to be great. I'm excited to play something that's not from DICE and isn't CoD.

I'm looking forward to this too. The preview vids so far have looked pretty cool, and I'm interested to see how good the actual gameplay will be.

Hrm, 4.99 for Dragon Age 2? Might be time to finally give in and buy it.

If the price gets low enough, I buy on Impulse!


Other than small areas to venture... I'm one of the few that really enjoyed the game.

The combat is boring, repetitive crap as well.

$60 is the normal cost for a game these days, just get over it.

That's for games that still need to make all their money back. These games have already made their money back before they were even made. Why do they need to be sold at $60?

Most Kickstarter games (if I didn't back), I'll pay 20 or 30 bucks for, and that's it.
Making a profit on it means they can maybe fund development of another game without doing a KS, or at least without needing to fund the whole thing through KS. Maybe they can get a good chunk of it done ahead and have something to show when they ask for more funding.

The only hope for America is to get rid of all these lousy asses on both sides (of which are the vast majority) and get people like Cruz and Lee who actually have a clue and real passion to go along with it.

They scare the fk outta libs and repubs both, and for good reason.
Because they're fucking nuts? The enemy of my enemy is not my friend if he's also my enemy. Those guys are not going to do anything good for the country. They just have a different plan for how to fuck things up in a way that suits their unbelievably insane base.

I think they did a lot of good articles and reviews. I don't really share the negative sentiment about Ben's writing. Sucks that they're going away. Hopefully they land somewhere else and continue doing good work.

I'm using waterfox now, I usually have a lot of tabs open and I find it's faster than vanilla firefox. I want to like chrome with its speed but I can't bring myself to switch so google can slurp up even more of my data.

TreeStyleTabs is the FF add-on that makes life tolerable for me with my ridiculous tab addiction. I currently have 183 tabs open

The network / netcode issues still need to be mentioned, the desync problem remains in place and there is no plan to work on it specifically. I'm pretty sure it's a business model issue, the bandwidth consumption is aggressively streamlined in order to support the free to play model. Some things like the position of the player, mobs and bosses are predicted and actually synced with the client many seconds apart in some situations - as a resync happens you will frequently see that you were attacking thin air or you were a screen away from where you thought you were and being hit from all sides without defending yourself. Part of playing Path of Exile in the permadeath leagues is to accept that this WILL bite you at some point and it WILL leave you wanting to uppercut your monitor across the room!

Most HC players use an AHK "/oos" macro to force resync (I do this in non-HC) and bind it to a key or mouse button.  I don't think the issue will ever be fixed due to the fact that they seem to have no intention to ever trust the client for anything.  That's great when it comes to preventing cheats, but sucks for preventing desync issues.  They would probably have to get rid of their accuracy mechanic and just accept what the client thinks is a hit as a hit, thus opening things up to possible exploits.  It would also require a lot of rework of the skill tree, items and overall balance.  I wouldn't count on this ever happening.

 

That said, the game is still quite fun, even though I refuse to play HC for this reason.  I'm not a very good player yet, but I started a new char in the Domination league (lvl 53 now iirc).  It was weird starting in a new league from scratch.  Joining a guild helps if you have members that will contribute gear and gems to the guild stash.  It's usually better than nothing.  Hoping to get to Merciless tonight or tomorrow, assuming I can get past Piety and Dominus.

The fact that the MPAA and other corporations and groups have consistently abused the takedown system that was put in place doesn't leave me terribly sympathetic to their complaints.

Florida woman in warning-shot case released.

I can't believe they released her! She broke the Stand Your Ground law. You're not supposed to WARN the person, you're supposed to SHOOT them! There's no way she's getting out of this one.

I'm not sure if you're /sarc or not (I'm kind of out of it at the moment), but the issue is mandatory sentencing, and how she got 20 years for firing a gun that didn't injure anyone. That's nucking futz...

Yeah I was being sarcastic. Was trying contrast it with the Trayvon case. I agree 20 years for that is insane. Also too, she's black so higher conviction rates and sentences statistically.

The Martin case wasn't even a SYG case though. The prosecution just seemed to be incompetent or uninterested in winning. They could have had a good manslaughter case at least, but they just screwed things up badly.
