Re: The New Golden Age of TV

BSG's problem was that they didn't have an end, even at the end. Ron Moore thought it up in the shower. As for the rest, couldn't agree more. This is a great time for great TV.

Re: Diablo 3!!

What makes me laugh are the people who buy items on the RMAH without thinking of Blizzard's tendency to over-compensate when it comes to 'balance'. Spend 50 bucks on an 'Increase Attack Speed' item? Whoops, sorry. We changed the way that stat works, and now your 50 dollar item is now only worth 20. ...

Re: Guild Wars 2

Not to quibble, but it's a pre-purchase in this instance. Pre-purchase means you're putting all your money up front now, instead of a five dollar pre-order to reserve you a copy of the game when it comes out.

Seems small, but one gets you access to the beta while the other does not.
