The app went live overnight. Initial stats show that 6075 users have already taken part.

Sad. Just sad.

In other news the new Soundgarden album is out. Woooo!

His twitter profiles says, "Might be the Tony Stark of videogames."

More like the MC Hammer of videogames.

I bought the Stronghold collection on Amazon digital download when it was on sale a while back but never installed it. Guess I'll have to actually install them now.

So is THIS the patch that makes the game not suck and gets rid of the RMAH and patches in single player offline mode?

I fixed it for you.

I figured I would put this here since we are talking about kindles. I just found an easy way to remove the amazon drm from my kindle books with a calibre a plugin. The steps to set up are here.

After reading this post about a user losing all their kindle books because amazon closed their account I decided to back up my books. (That link is getting hammered because it is the top link on hackernews at the moment.)

Is Amazon Really Discontinuing the Kindle Touch?

That's the first time I've heard anything negetive about the paperwhite, but I agree, the splotchy lighting looks odd.


Scott Hanselman reviewed it on his blog and opened my eyes to all its shortcomings at least from the perspective of a gadget geek

I wish I had been paying more attention to the official forums, people have been churning out small mods already. Found a bunch of interesting balance tweaks, I'll be around on the weekend if anyone wants to run Mapworks or start a new character.

Yeah, I was planning to install the mod that eliminates the fade out of mobs on edges of the screen but wasn't sure it was compatible with the patch that just came out.

I'm up to about 80 hours on TL2 now and will hopefully finish it on the berserker I've been playing. I've played nothing but veteran difficulty and I started with an embermage that I took to level 21, then an engineer to 35. My berserker is 47 and I think I'm almost done with act 3 so will finish the main quest this weekend hopefully.

And Dishonored and X-com patiently wait for me to play them

I just can't stop playing TL2. Maybe once I finish it with one class I will be content to give it a rest though. I'm definitely looking forward to this patch with the determinism fix. Which is tech speak for fixing a bug from the last patch that made randomized breakables on maps lootless and quest givers/entrances disappear. And it caused lots of network sync issues supposedly too but I haven't played multi yet.

I wouldn't pay $100 for it. There is no way to load regular desktop apps on Win8 RT. I have no desire to be required to go through the Windows store for all my software.

More info here.

#33 Jack Black as a kid in the Pitfall commercial. Wow I never saw that before.

I too remember playing Combat and Space Invaders on Christmas day way back...I also had Yar's revenge and the Sears Star Trek ripoff "Stellar Trek" which was actually a pretty good game. And River Raid and Pitfall. Such great memories.

I spent all my time doing archaeology and gathering in Kalimdor

I never knew about pacifist players in WoW. So do they run away from mobs when they aggro one accidentally? I guess they buy all their gear on the AH with proceeds from their gathering/archeology profession?

Interesting...now back to TL2!

TL2 > D3 in every conceivable way.

It's funny because before they both hit I would never have dreamed that would be true. TL1 was good, but it was no Diablo 2. Oh how the tables have turned.

I haven't played D3 and probably never will but I can affirm the greatness that is TL2. I took a break from Dishonored around 9PM last night to play a "little" TL2 and the next time I looked up it was 1AM. It is so damn hard to quit playing once you start it.

I should just wait and grab Dishonored later

No! Grab it now!!!


I'm in the same predicament. I am barely into Act 2 of TL2 and pre-ordered X-com so want to play that after work tonight. I want Dishonored but it can wait a few weeks.
