Too Many Guns!

The most infuriating things have been happening with Borderlands 2 today, for my friend as well as myself.

For reasons unknown, my friends level 45 Assassin, whom he had spent a considerable amount of time with, farming guns, experience and just having fun, had been corrupted. It's Zer0s own fault. we warned him against taking those pills, we told him it was a gateway into murkier areas of life, but he just didn't listen, he went ahead and just like that, he was corrupt, and without even leaving a note with a simple "Goodbye, cruel w0rld!" he sadly died...

Almost the same thing happened to my newly created Mechromancer. The compatibility pack failed to load properly and killed her... It was a very sad time for all involved (just me mostly), but I'd only just brought her to life, and I didn't even have a chance to meet Death-trap!

Luckily for me, my Mechromancer rose from the dead! It involved deleting and re-downloading everything, but she lives. Not so lucky for my friend though, because his assassin is still no longer with us, no matter what my friend tries...

Another short post, but still...

Cya Nerds!

Timesplitters HD... Possibly

Time for a bit of news.

For those of you wondering where Timesplitters went, you may not have to wait too long.. Not for a new game, but for the re-release of Timesplitters HD onto XBLA, PSN, PC etc.

The CEO of Crytek said that if the petition picks up, then we'll all be one step closer to Timesplitters.

But this all depends on the kindness of Nerds. The petition is still relatively low in numbers, and could use a boost. There are other articles about this, but the one I found the news from is

Anyway, it's only a short post today, but I am writing something else at the moment, I just thought you should hear about this before it's too late. Don't forget to tell your friends about the petition, it's important.

Here's the link to the article:

Because 7 8 9

So... I read in some news article today, I forget which... But it's been announced that Disney has bought the Star Wars franchise, or something to that effect.

They are planning to make Star Wars VII by 2015 and then VIII and IX in later years. Let's just digest that for a moment... Consider the implications... Doesn't look good, does it?

Anyway! We have just over 2 years to wait before that happens, let's focus on more immediate things.

Like... It's almost the End of The World, if you believe the Mayan calendars (personally, I think they're just hinting at a new one for Christmas and it just got blown out of proportion).

Assassin's Creed III has this as part of the main story-line, not having the game you are in no danger of spoilers, but I can say this; there will be Assassins on a boat. I know, it isn't quite Snakes on a Plane, but it'll get there, don't worry.

I've heard good and bad things about the game, mainly about the simplified controls, which no one can seem to agree on, and the sometimes poor frame rate. But the mini- games, side missions and naval battles are all quite intriguing, and I really want to try the new Co-op missions... I have no doubt I will get this game eventually, but when that will be, with all the new games coming out, I don't know...

If the world doesn't end by 21st December, maybe I'll get it for Xmas, but Desmond can solve that problem.

Finally, to our small audience and chance readers; Yes, I mean you! Hopefully starting soon, Cam will begin writing again, maybe some things about Dota 2, who knows?

So, look forward to that, and I'll be writing something new soon.

Happy Nerdings!
