And again, +Sony Online Entertainment [Official]  totally misses the point of why I enjoyed Star Wars Galaxies.

Thank you, at least I won't have to pay money to figure out how you were going to screw it up.

That is a little off center of the target I think.

So, is Diablo III a good game? Now that the Auction Houses are gone, I'm thinking of getting it.

It was pretty decent when it first came out, even with the auction house (who knows, you might get that 1 in a billion drop for a Monk, that you can't use, but someone might pay 50$ for).

I played for a while, then drifted away... I liked playing, but because of the AH, the drop rarity was such that you basically never got anything good.. and if you did, it likely wasn't useful for the toon you were playing.

A few weeks ago, in prep for the expansion, the patched to 2.0, including the new loot system. GODDAMN ITS FUN. You now basically have to get all your equipment yourself, which is fun. And there is a fairly high amount of "smart loot", so if you are running a Barb, 80-90% of your drops are Barb focused (but enough other stuff drops that you can feed your Wizard or Demon Hunter some decent stuff as well).

Also added was changes to Paragon levels, making it so that instead of each character having their own Paragon pool, all characters on the account share the same pool. So, when I start my new Crusader, I'll get a bit of boost because I'll have 60 paragon points to spend on him. This also means you can run whatever character you feel like running at the time. If you have a capped Wiz and a capped Barb, run either one, all the xp goes to the same pool (none goes to paragon unless you are at the cap).

The new expansion actually made the higher difficulties hard... but with the exception of class-specific set pieces, and I think the highest level of gem, everything can drop in all difficulties. Torment difficulties have a very, very small increased chance per slider tick of a higher legendary rate, but it's really a small increase... you'll still get good loot running Normal. You just get a gold and xp rate bump for playing the harder difficulties.

So.. yeah, it's exactly what I wanted when D3 came out; D2 but prettier, more engaging and lootier.

Actually it's more that we go insane if we don't. We don't know why we go insane, but we do.

Stupidest science headline ever. Cancer has existed in humans since there were humans. Well almost, there was that small period after the first humans were born from non-humans that they weren't old enough to have cancer, but that was probably 40 years at most.

+Joshua Bihun is that observational science or historical science? ;)
I have been dying to use that phrase for a month.

So, now that Blizzard has closed the Auction Houses, I have broken down and bought Diablo III. Of course, there are over 11 gigs of patches to download.

This is my reward for the past 2 weeks of hard work. Of course I'm trying to work while the download is going on.

Many of my friends have seen this, but I think more people need to.

I started watching these videos because I wanted info on cremation and natural burial (Still haven't decided how I want my corpse disposed of, just that it will not involve embalming). Anyway for several years this woman has given good information about what you can expect when your loved ones die and how to deal with the burial industry.

So Jerry Seinfeld is stealing from +Robert Llewellyn . I guess it's supposed to be an honor.

If only.....
 
My new conspiracy theory:

The Rapture actually happened recently. But Tim LeHaye was way off in his Left Behind estimates, and through sheer coincidence, everyone eligible for rapturing was on Flight 370.

While you can implement for loops with while loops, it has been a while since it was a good idea to do so. Sometimes, a for loop is just the best way especially in situations where what you really need is a foreach loop.

A small distillery with hand-made stills that are quite beautiful to look at. On the tour you get a really good explanation of distillation, how the stills work and how they are craftsmen because of deliberate choices they made. It's well worth the time and the money. The vodka is very good but not all grappa may be to your taste. Luckily they produce multiple types beyond the "traditional".

A place for yuppie coffee purists. I made the mistake of ordering an eggnog latte and was given the distinct impression that I had asked them to puree their cat. Not going back, since I love eggnog latte.

Enchiladas, Enchiladas Enchiladas. Michoacan has more than a choice of red and green sauce. I love the smokey red sauce .

I liked Cyndy's, unfortunately they are now closed permanently after a long battle to stay open.
