time for the faceshit junkies to check and recheck there security settings

Luke,

You want to use their instead of there in this instance as it is the possessive pronoun.

To be fair, they remade all the vanilla zones to enable players to fly in them. And remade a lot of starter quests, etc. So maybe their focus should have been on more higher end content. Instead I think they just decided to have less high end content but make it hard as hell.

Controlling all your player data does have it's advantages to curb the hex editing haxors but they could at least give us an option to have an "offline only" character.

Oh well, there are always indie PC games that can take my money.

Thanks nin. I don't usually pre-order but the rock paper shotgun preview sold me and $34 isn't bad for a new AAA game.

That's an interesting article on the dwarf fortress devs. Kind of sad that he has basically given up on romantic relationships though. And his diet sounds pretty destructive but at 33 I guess he won't have issues for a few more years.

I haven't played DF yet but I'm pretty hooked on Terraria at the moment so probably won't be trying it anytime soon.

A father of two, Ardolf had turned down a 2-year plea agreement last year to charges related to the Biden e-mail. After that, the authorities piled on more charges, including identity theft and two kiddie-porn accusations carrying lifetime sex-offender registration requirements. He pleaded guilty to them all last year.

From 2 year plea to 18 years what a stupid decision to turn down that plea agreement!

Go to gmail, create JoeSmith4455212@gmail.com, register on facebook as Joe Smith from Kalamazoo, and your problem is solved. You now have a facebook account with 0 valid personal information.

Yeah I did that a long time ago using a fake name and I got a bunch of requests from people thinking it was someone they knew. I think no matter what fake name you come up with there will be some long lost schoolmate or something asking you if you know them...

Their disclaimer in the readme:

Hopefully, the lawyers will be happy with that...

If anyone wants to gift me their extra copy of Frozen Synapse I'll gift them something of their choosing for $6 or less on STEAM. If not I'll probably buy it before the end of the sale lol Sneaky

Edit: nevermind I bought it

So is the font in Eve still super tiny and not adjustable? My monitor's native resolution is 2048x1152 and Eve is unplayable without adjustable font sizes...playing at butt-ugly 1024x768 or something just isn't a solution. Maybe they have some DLC fonts now lol

@justice7:

WoW is definitely fun if you haven't leveled a character to the cap yet. There are fun quests and places to explore as you gain levels. You will definitely have fun if all you have reached is level 40 up to this point.

Once you reach the cap the game changes into getting the best gear you can get. First you get gear upgrades from 5 man dungeons. Then gear from the badges collected from raids/dungeons and turned into vendors. Then once all that gear is attained you get the best gear from 10/25 man raid drops.

I quit about a month after Cata came out simply because I was tired of grinding for gear. Well, that and the content was raping my priest in pick up groups and I was tired of being blamed for wipes when it was really the unbalanced dungeons to blame.

Freddie Wong is great. Haven't seen any of his videos since the "flowers for blood" video that was so cool. I subscribed to his youtube channel so hopefully won't miss any new ones.

News Comments > WoW Patch Notes
1. Re: WoW Patch Notes Jun 24, 2011, 22:42 Shok
 
I saw a banner ad for WoW, maybe it was here actually, and it was touting their 12 million subscribers. I seriously doubt they still have that many. They sent me a 7 day "come back and get hooked again" email offer a few weeks back. I logged in on a Saturday afternoon in Orgrimmar and there were a lot less players and trade chat was silent. I think I played all of 15 minutes with most of the time chatting with a friend before logging off and not logging back in the rest of the trial period. I've toyed with the idea of leveling up another alt but I'm sure I will just get bored after an hour or so again.
