Gunnar-man has been taking to marking around the house

Has he caught wind of new dog? Barking or a nearby yard he can see? A rolled up newspaper on the butt can work wonders as Sauron has said.

Our little yorkie Lucy

Deepest sympathies Verno. My little mate had a stroke when she was seventeen, though it was five years ago now I remember picking her up on the morning of a forty degrees day and warning her that it was going to be a terribly hot summer and that if she wanted to move on it was okay with me. I'll be damned, but about an hour later she had the stroke and off we went to the vet, broke my heart of course, but every morning I roll out of bed to extreme heat I smile at her in my memory. What a great friend she was.

I gave it a year before I went down to the pound, which was good for me. Though with my young family now, I could see the benefits of another pet to ease the burden on little hearts. Sixteen years is a great effort by all, especially Lucy. Salute.

They have no impact on the gameplay experience and no utility in or out of the game. They exist for the sole reason of boosting your ePeen.

Aye true, but whoever comes up with an eGina is gonna be loaded.

They feel that they can win arguments by conviction rather than logic, and that is why they get so angry and emotional about it - because thats all they have to work with - just a never-ending sense of hurt pride, of being offended, of not getting enough respect for how awesome they are. It fuels the moral outrage and self-righteous indignation and helps deflect the issue away from themselves. Thats why fundamentalists are such crusaders, because they are too chickenshit to deal with their own internal problems.

Great post, but I would suggest that conviction/will is necessary to feed/sustain systems of logic. I think there is definitely a balance available to achieve, perhaps the ethical responsibility that Cutter suggested.

So how is it mentioned in their Terms of Service as being possible, then at the same time being explained as an error in their system?

It's either one or the other. Unless they're saying that you can lose access to MP games, rather than SP?

Creston

Aye I'm with you, what the hell is that convoluted pile of Lindsey Naegle he spewed when asked for a definitive word?

Try "Yes" or "No" next time chief.

but I can't wrap my head around why they would "fix" something that wasn't broken.

Speed, I'm assuming whatever changes they've made have resulted in faster production times. They're counting on DA:O players returning to the well on reflex, so all that really matters is the name "Dragon Age."

What's wrong with Manhunt?

If I remember right, it had something to do with a plastic bag being used as a murder weapon. That there's something extra evil about the idea or something, at least, that's what I remember reading in a very dodgy Australian newspaper some years ago.

I literally finished almost every quest in the whole game, even the weird ones like Mehrunes' Razor and all the daedric shrines you could only find in the back of beyond all over the island. One of them was underwater a mile or so off the coast. Every random bandit lair, and every mechanized dwarven hall full of corpses whose robots were all still functioning. All the Slayers' Brotherhood quests. I think I was even a vampire for an extended period.

Man I thought I played Morrowind to death...but underwater daedric shrine a mile off the coast? /me bows humbly.

Great game, great to see it still getting some love

Really? People got confused by the numbers that appeared when you hit enemies?

Yeah I agree that is annoying, hopefully there'll be an option to turn them on.

If a game is designed to be played in real-time, it has to be made easier so as to minimize the amount of micromanagement required of the player. Therefore, if DA2 is trying to make real-time combat viable throughout the whole game, the difficulty will inevitably be greatly reduced from DAO, where pausing and intense micromanagement were mandatory.

Equally annoying, I much prefer to the pause and assign tactics style of gameplay, it'll be interesting to see how this pans out. Hopefully not too nerfed.

I can appreciate Brett’s love for the game and not wanting to give it up and to keep on playing, but he should have been professional enough and smart enough to know when to hang it up and finish on a high (last year/season).

I can understand his desire to keep going after 5 &&#(% hb fumbles were all that kept him from glory. But yeah, I think the snow on the metrodome roof sums up the vikes year nicely, just a very stinky year.
