Forums, which were supposed to close at midnight, are still up and open. And all the missing forums (the only ones left yesterday afternoon were general and announcements) are also back.

I'm quite sick of having choices of "Bud Light" or "Busch Light".  That's like choosing between my own piss and someone elses piss.  -Dashy

"It's now very common to hear people say 'I'm rather offended by that.'  As if that gives them certain rights; it's actually nothing more...it's simply a whine.  It's no more than a whine.  'I find that offensive,' it has no meaning, it has no purpose, it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that,' well so fucking what?"   -Stephen Fry

Hmm, as of today I still saw HGL boxes in game shops. Didn't seriously look at them (decided quite a while ago that I wouldn't get it), but I hadn't heard this news till just now...

Even if they save it, I suspect a great many subscribers will unsubscribe (when/if the option re-appears), online players will go SP, new sales will plummet, and the game will die anyway.


Aim low. Less chance of disappointment. More chance of a nutshot.

If you don't have idiot friends, it's possible you are the idiot friend.
