Re: Da Corona

Doing ok in Oz. Still at work, which is a lot better off than many. Restrictions are really starting to ramp up - maximum of 2 people indoors/outdoors (family excluded), most states have effectively closed borders, retail is basically shut down nationwide. Lots of "interesting" panic buying.

Re: Member when....

That's pretty much why I think a robust debate would cover it. If Biden truly has Alzheimer's then evening debates will be completely disastrous for him. If he's snappy, to the point and not repeating himself inappropriately then it's hard to argue mental failing.

Re: Member when....

I'm really not sure what is going to happen right now. Not convinced Biden or Trump have dementia - it's not hard for evil editing to show what you want. The debates (if they happen) should sort some of that out. Biden is clearly the compromise candidate from the Dems, and Trump is doing his level b...

….there was discussion of the Tea Party fracturing the Republican party? It seems the Socialist wing of the Democrats is bound and determined to do the same.
This election is shaping up to be pretty special.

Resurrected the Brell board

Took a bit to revive from an ancient version of phpbb! Sorry, but haven't got the time to rebuild a template with the awesome pix that used to be there. :(

Re: I recovered my character!

Hmm... loaded Dd up and he's in Plane of Tranquility. Clicked into Time, and saw a rift thingy. Clicked on it. Looked scary. Gated out. Camped. That's probably me for another few years. :)

Hi Anshar!

EQ spoiled me for pretty much every other MMO. :( I still watch videos on YouTube every now and then.

Re: Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen

Wow - that video made me think of Apple right now, but yes, it does apply to game companies as well. I love Assassin's Creed but it's hard to say that there's anything particularly innovative going on - just a prettier sandbox each time that's looking like most other Ubi sandboxes.

Re: Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen

I'm thinking they might have scooped up someone from Blizzard. Lots of "things" happening in Warcraft land. Activision laying off a lot. Mostly marketing/admin/publisher side from what I understand, not game dev side. That's largely due to losing a couple of dev studios, so don't have the work to s...

Re: Income Inequality

If I had to make a guess, I'd say it's the progressive breakdown of family structures and the 50's ideal of one income earner being able to support the (insert nation here) dream. There's a huge difference between Boomer parents that could have Dad working to support the family and go on a 2 week va...

Re: Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen

I may or may not be account sharing with some people in pre-alpha. I do have my own alpha account tho. Each stage of PA has made great strides in both mechanics/content. They recently hired a new animator so hopefully we get more fluid combat animations and not the literal 1998 EQ placeholders that...

Re: Trump is now president.

That is because most Parliamentary styles of government allow "radical" ideologies to flourish and have a party. Anytime things get out of control, they dissolve and start over. The US system is not designed in that fashion. It is a more deliberate process and the two houses of Congress are require...

Re: Income Inequality

The simple truth is that minimum wage jobs were never designed to be something you "live on", they are jobs that completely unskilled workers get to gain experience. This idea that you can live working at McDonald's is just a fantasy that people have concocted to explain why they continue to stay a...
