Out of the Blue

Last night was a tough way to open the football season for a Giants fan, and the scheduling I mentioned yesterday means an extended wait for the possibility of redemption. The team's defensive backfield is not their strength to start with, but injuries had the fifth-string cornerback playing with the ones last night. That's not even a tertiary, much less a secondary, and while I always want the NFL season to last longer, if the team can't defend passes better (presumably by generating more of their famed pass rush), it's going to be a long season in that negative way. Anyway, I'm 0-1 on my picks... nowhere to go but up!

GW2 interactive map!

How is the game? You guys having ablast? Staying power? I got into GW games late and everyone fizzled - our Blues CLan died a horrible death....

It will probably ebb and flow like most other MMO games. The lack of a sub fee makes it a great game to come back to after taking a break though. I'm still having a great time and there are way less social restrictions than in other MMOs like WoW - you can be in a guild on a different server than yours, do cross server activities with friends and so on.

The base game itself has an absurd amount of content, probably a thousand hours or so if you were to do everything. Great bargain considering much of it is experienced organically rather than in a traditional treadmill too. It's the first game this year where I felt it really lived up to all of my expectations, hopefully BL2 is the second.
