Out of the Blue

It's been fun running into some of you on the Blue's News TrackMania server (in the figurative sense, since the game doesn't feature car collisions). I plan on getting in some good track time over the weekend: I think I'm right on the crest of going from completely sucking to just sucking. Vrooom!

I'm wondering if I am playing the same game as others here, because I am having a blast with Borderlands. it's not going to win any awards, true, but it is good fun that's kept me busy for over 60 hours now.

Thats faster than I expected. I appreciate you looking into this. Even if it takes a few days longer, you deserve the benifit of the doubt.

I'm sorry blue but this is the second time its happened from your site in last couple weeks. I'm going to have to turn back on my ad blockers for your site soon to protect myself.

We have been having a brief experiment with another ad provider. Be assured that if I can't get these ads cleared up immediately following start of business tomorrow, this experiment will have concluded.

Apologies for the scammy ad.

I enjoyed Borderlands very much.

It is like a comedic version of FallOut 3 with lighter RPG elements.

Blue:
You definately have one of those fake antivirus popup ads in your site. I dunno which ad networks you use, but they need to check into this. This time I had gmail (which uses text ads) and your site open. It happened right after I click to post a comment, so it was triggered by an ad loading on your site on the comment posted screen. It not only had a popup, it took control of the bluesnews tab and tried to change it to another webpage.

The link it tried to take me to was (warning to everyone do NOT click this link unless you want to be infected by fake antivirus adware/malware):
85.12.44.154/index.php?q=e683e289cccb3795b503dc08d944d5699110220

It's not only that bad, it's worse. It boggles the mind that anyone can believe it's even half way decent. Like I said, I rented the damn thing and still feel ripped off.

It's not that bad. I managed to play through the whole thing with each class before getting bored.

Well, I tried Borderlands on Steam, and I have to say this is, hands down, the shittest game of 2009!


Hehehe. I had been debating picking it up for 25 bucks. I think I'll wait 'till it hits $5.

I think Borderlands is a great game. Repetitive? Yes. But what game isn't these days?

I had the most fun with 2-3 friends. Bad guys get more powerful. Realyl? Are you complaining about lvl 3 guys harassing you when you are lvl 20? Let it go man! Let it go!

POV is fixable.
UI is bad cause it is a port, I will give you that.

The rest I don't remember, I am hung over.
