I loaded an earlier save and continued my business elsewhere, only bothered to go back to the ending after getting Broken Steel

Yesterdays surprise update got me playing Dwarf Fortress again. I'm very impressed with how my computer is handling the game - nearly 200 dorfs, ~100 animals, flowing water and magma, and I'm still getting an average of ~50 FPS. Before I upgraded my PC, I wouldn't even be getting 15 FPS with a fortress of this size. :lol:

Go for the booze, you know you want to.

I gave up on Wow when I couldn't take going into AV and loosing every time because we had 20ish players and Alliance had the full 40.

Managed to scrape together the money for both as I'd found out I'd been paid recently. So I have no life for at least 60 more days :yes:

It is already too late for this young man... Another casualty to the life-stealing machine that is WoW :(


Also, I've been getting huge temptations to install Diablo 2 again, especially as I've now got a mouse on my laptop :D

Street Fighter IV for the PC just came out and I've been playing it silly amounts. Even though I have to significantly reduce the settings to play it on my computer, it is awesome. Except for Seth. He suffers badly from Capcom-ridiculously-hard-boss syndrome.

But real life sucks, whereas in WoW I'm a MOTHERFUCKING DWARF WITH A SHOTGUN!!!

The good noobs play WoW on easy mode and start with a Blood Elf Warlock.

They're so insanely overpowered that if you're still getting killed by similar level mobs at level 5 you should just give up the game.

I'll be starting something different as soon as I get to a semi-respectable level as I'm getting pretty tired of being owned every time my pet dies. Good for PvP on battlegrounds though, just stand at a distance and fire away while people are distracted by other players.
