I will never understand the pirate apologists who advocate for people getting entertainment (i.e. non-essential) products without paying for them. It's never a "I wouldn't pay $x but I would pay $x/2," it's "I wouldn't ever pay but that won't stop me from enjoying the benefits of a paying user." » 8/14/14 4:51pm 8/14/14 4:51pm

One part that he gets wrong is not understanding that they are showing Lara before she became a badass.

This would get me back into ESO. It felt too empty and I couldn't bring myself to keep playing. I really liked this dynamic in Ultima Online, especially before it became Trammel and Felucca. If they don't trammelize the thing, it could be incredibly fun! » 7/21/14 12:33pm 7/21/14 12:33pm
