Bethesda Announces Elder Scrolls MMO

Mavakoy Re:Not Excited (295 comments)

Unless they take the approach the Guild Wars did - communal towns/cities, where there are shops etc, but combat is disabled. Unique instances of the main game world for when you leave town, either with other players, or NPC followers.

You get the MM part of MMORPG if you want it, but aren't forced to put up with annoying people whilst "in game" and can just go it alone if you want.

UK Minister Backs 'Two-Speed' Internet

Mavakoy Re:Aren't the pipes already being paid for? (226 comments)

Not in the UK (and presumably the rest of Europe) If someone calls/texts me, they get charged. I only pay for outgoing calls/text messages.
