  1. Hnngghh The Forest hits steam on my birthday. http://survivetheforest.com/

      My cousin showed me this game. Looks good even though that specific game genre is over done these days. Hopefully this one is done right.

  2. It's actually not bad, graphics and such look like something out of 2002, but the game itself is pretty good so far. Best time had in Archeage to date: Party boating with friends on land, used the harpoon to hitch us to an airship and let it drag us through the woods while everyone danced, until they were flung off and a few died.
  3. Fu Last Light, fu. If you die, it's a big deal that you left Anna and your kid behind, but if you live, no mention of either one of them?! Like, now that you're alive it's not at all important that you got the chick knocked up and had a son, no no, lets talk about the alien/mutant/whatevers.

      Do people get this site confused with Facebook or something? Seems to happen quite a bit...

      Zazaaji, because only facebook has status updates, it clearly doesn't say "status updates" at the top.

  4. this sloth.. after the "eee" he's like *looks up* "HUH??"

  6. http://www.forbes.com/sites/gregorymcneal/2014/03/27/california-democrat-and-gun-control-advocate-charged-with-arms-trafficking/ So, where are all those outraged lefties? The right does something bad, internet is flooded, the left, not so much.

      That's more or less my point, when republicanism is popular, you see all the worst of the left, now that democrats are popular, it's all about the right, and lets ignore what the dems are doing. There should be outrage from all sides right now, the left that tries to portray itself as being so much better than the right should be furious at a liberal democrat doing such things and making them look bad.

      And in the same regard, the right should show restraint and not use this as ammo for the next 10 election periods..

      Right... Left... They're all idiots. People should have to take IQ tests and undergo psychological evaluations before being allowed to run for any kind of office. It's pathetic how US politics seem to have degenerated into what could be compared to two drunks pissing on each other's loafers.

  8. Whatchu scopin my prof for son :P

  9. Trying to support a friend who's streaming league. http://www.twitch.tv/pigloot hit this guy up if you like epic beards

  10. Anyone up for some NA TESO? 1 week.

  11. I have no idea when that is, but sure.

  12. Just got back from work. I wouldn't mind teaming up in the next beta though.

  13. My nord is Sir Baldington the Bald

  14. I'm enjoying myself so far, it's incomplete (obviously, it's still in closed beta), but if the incomplete parts get the same quality treatment as the complete parts... I can definitely see myself buying this game.
  15. I'm resurrecting this old thing purely out of curiosity if anyone is playing the beta..
