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.

Came with a flawless copy of the Witcher 2 soundtrack, as well. Awesome score - Love listening to it while ARMing.

Laura, did weird tribal men follow you around at age 15?
If by weird tribal men you mean Christians then yes.

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.

You aren't missing anything yet, it's still not live.

Good news for you is everyone with a Planetside 1 account gets beta access, and will be prioritized for the first wave of invites.
All the world will be your enemy. When they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you; digger, listener, runner, Prince with the swift warning. Be cunning, and full of tricks, and your people will never be destroyed.

Who is playing EVE Online these days?  I'm reactivating my accounts.

I do.  I see Halaster log in every now and again as well.

Yeah, problem I'm having is that the old account is on an old AOL e-mail I don't have access too anymore... which sucks.

Awww. I remember having some email exchanges about Eve online with Halaster. It's heartwarming that he still plays.

Last game I played with Halaster was Age of Conan heheh :)

Soo long ago, it seems!

The people scattered gold-dust before my horse’s feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back.”

If you have an account from way back when, they just gave every existing account a bunch of free game time.

I like board games. A lot. I recently blew $60 on Arkham Asylum so that I could be repeatedly mauled by Cthulhu and made to feel shame over my inability to save the world.

Picked up Dawn of War 1 and all expansions during the DoW steam sale. I'm quickly remembering why this is one of my favorite RTS games ever.

I was just going to post the link to it! It's still on sale, 14.99$ for Dawn of War 2 - Complete pack :)

It's not one of my favorite RTS game ever, it IS my favorite RTS game ever.

"shrapnel." Its messed up. Freaking love it. Short text game.

You'll have to download the client that its made for, but it doesn't take too long. Guy who made them has other games in the list but shrapnel is my favorite of the ones I've played.

EDIT: Oh, wait, browser client, here it is. http://zmpp.sourceforge.net/games/play.php?name=Shrapnel%20%28Adam%20Cadre%29&storyfile=shrapnel.z5
Playing something new could be just what you need!

Heh. Hoping end of 2013 as that's just about right for a hardware refresh on my end.
And there was some dwarf smoking spice, and I thought that was so scandalous because I'd only been playing in 'nak.

I heard it is very good. I played Varicella from the same guy and, while very good, the time limit made in extremely frustrating. But Varicella is awesome antihero.

Curious if its any good or just another MMO failure.

I am.  It's not a failure, but it's not amazing.  The game is very good in my opinion and gets away from the typical MMO style that out there.  Gamespy really has a good WIP review on it, http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/the-secret-world/1225319p1.html.

I really enjoy the Investigation quests and how the game allows you to create your class how you feel like it.  Character creation, like Gamespy says, is kinda lack luster and combat while interesting seems to lack a bit.  It's in my opinion one of the best games Funcom has put out and with a bit more time will turn it into an even better game.
Or you might get me.

Anonymous:  I mean... the concept of making one class completely dominating, and able to crush any other class after 5 days of power-playing, seems ridiculous to me.
