In Montana, I had 56K dial-up, though it only ended up getting around 17K. Slow slow slow.

Now I have DSL, which makes my [downloading] life much easier, and I can actually use online multimedia! Yay!!

Well. Obviously, if you have a higher title, you are of higher status.

But anyway, maybe we should define a definite line between newbiehood and oldbiehood, as some people are just aching to cross it. :P

This is also a case where the title fits very nicely, if I do say so myself.

Anyway, yeah, "purc" stands for "purchase".

Ya, good point. :/

I was overdue for a change anyway. Not like it does anything for my status.

Ya, only in my game, I never encountered the *cough*ghost*cough*. But my brother did, though, so anyway.

I don't know. Implants may have a mind of thier own, are there even though you don't know it, and may resist activation or deactivation if it doesn want to.

Does the Alien Blade really have something to do with *cough*H's*cough*M*cough*? That's what my brothers say, but I've never got it.

Also, what is that 2-shaped lava thing in the mountains around the Defiled Crypt?

Content ratings in Blades of Exile

However, I think some scenarios are just rated R so the player can't say it "shouldn't have been PG", though it's not really R. Analogous to setting beginning scenarios on Very High party level to prevent enemy HP doubling.

It has vambraces, which essentially are armored pants.

Really? Cool. I actually haven't played A4 hardly at all.

And on a side note, I wonder why Jeff couldn't make armored pants to go with the chain mail. Avernum V idea, maybe?

I can't imagine an organized league for playing Calvinball. Once when I was young I had the idea to try to play a game like this, with no rules, and complete insanity. The result was rampant cheating and thoroughly unenjoyable.
That's pretty much happened when Calvin played it anyway.

Since you mention then, what are your favorite abandonware games, Shaun. I always like good free new games.

Taking exactly 1 less point of damage per hit isn't exactly anything to write home about. :P
It still can be agued as worth it, though, especially because pants are common and in most cases free. It's like switching your Iron Broadsword for an Iron Wave Blade, even though the wave blade is only one damage point better.

I've been keeping rather close track of the MLB this year, but not the NBA. If I had a few good TV channels, that might be different, though. Obviously the Blazers are unlikely to go anywhere.

There's not a whole lot you can do as President that Congress doesn't agree on, so.

That and I have little experience with public debating/speaking, making uncooperative foreigns cooperative without decooperating others as well as which building in Iraq to drop the next bomb on. I'm a good supporter, obviously, of the job GWB is doing so far, like it or not.

No, you need to kill monsters. He just doesn't steal stuff. But like Bain said, there's not that much good stuff to steal anyway.

Yeah, but a grid works better, and there's no intricate one-pixel mouse locations.

I'd recommend Exile 3 and see what you think. If you like that, start at 1 and progress. If you don't like one, just play 3 or BoX or Avernum.

I am currently exclusively English, which was not on the list for the second question in the poll, but I hope to learn Spanish this summer. It should be fun, so it should.
