Mass Effect To Invade the Big Screen

Faaln I don't think the submitter watched that last one. (142 comments)

Clash of the Titans (bland movie, with bland writing, starring a bland lead actor) gets listed among a bunch of moderate to great movies without so much as a hiccup and The Hangover gets a pretentious "um"? WTF.

Microsoft To Get Malware Bailout In Germany

Faaln Re:Too small a staff (226 comments)

My main problem is that, if they're anything like the people I've had to work with, they won't call in until it's so bad they need a clean OS install anyway and then the call will probably turn into a long conversation about back up options for their documents and files(some of which are probably infected and will rape the new install soon enough).

Faaln helping players is one thing (187 comments)

No therapists in my guild without at least a 3k gear score; if these guys are going to "help" players they may as well help with their guild progression ;)
