The game looked meh... although I'll bookmark and keep an eye on development.
And there was some dwarf smoking spice, and I thought that was so scandalous because I'd only been playing in 'nak.

Fair enough, I just see a DF Adventurer Mode tailored almost precisely to my own preferences ;D

Who is playing EVE Online these days?  I'm reactivating my accounts.
Or you might get me.

Maaaan Lone Survivor is hard in part 2 (after going down the stairs). Sooo many monsters, absolutely horrid targeting and combat system, and no apparent way of sneaking past rather than fighting. I stopped playing it after the 8th or so death at the same spot. Sucks, loved the game until then. :(

Never thought I'd see this dude stood next to Gaben.

As a fencer I'm half excited to see this. Not so excited about motion control included in the game. Fencing, a vast majority of it, is about foot work.

I fenced for a few years. Maybe most people at my local club just weren't very good, but I found footwork to be pretty unimportant when I'M SO TALL NOBODY CAN REACH ME.

Definitely going to buy into the Kickstarter because A) Snow Crash and B) Gaben.

Footwork is a very ambiguous term that encompasses many elements of positioning, stance, balance and general manipulation of momentum. Many people mistakenly believe it's simply stepping in the right place. It's a little more complicate than that.

I tried fencing for a little bit, wasn't really my type of sport. (read; I sucked at it)

I did three months of footwork in my teens when I first started fencing before my coach would even let me touch my first foil. Not sure what club you went to but it sounds like it wasn't a very serious one.

Tell us how it is. That's looks fuckin sweet. :)
And then I sat there going "really? that was it? that's so stupid."

I still think the best closure you get in Armageddon is just moving on to the next character.

Beta went out to pay who pledged $25 during the kickstarter. Maybe some others from the press but that's about it.

The game is really good. Extremely addictive and challenging at times. We're all posting bug reports and suggestions back.

The bad:

(1) Graphical anomalies on Radeon cards. Hopefully fixed before release.
(2) No "save" at all, including no "quit and save" functionality. The devs are currently don't want to put this into the game at all and a lot of people are asking for it.
(3) Unforgiving. They might tweak balance. Right now there's easy mode and normal mode. I think normal should be split into normal and hard, with normal offering higher scrap drops.

Both are currently free and worth every penny :)

Also, the time of year where we give all our money to Valve is rapidly approaching.

Managed to snag myself a nearly mint-condition copy of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition for the pre-owned price.

Suh-weet.

I have that. I played it 'til disc 2. Then my cat jumped into the XBOX right when I'd put the disc in. Scratched disc 2 so badly that's it's unplayable, now.

It was good up until that point!

I'm excited for the new Assassin's Creed! I really hope it's accurate to history and Mohawk culture, or else!

Got a priority beta key for Planetside 2. I really can't wait for that to start up.

I'm so upset about this because I can't find my old PS1 account and I hate SOE's account management system to reset passwords and crap.  It's so freaken annoying.  I -think- I got a beta key put in, I have no clue.  I want to play this damn beta so badly.
Or you might get me.
