Re: Hex MMOTCG by Cryptozoic

And heck, even where there are technically opportunities to play MTG, one's schedule might interfere. My Friday nights are already spoken for. FNM will never happen for me. The freedom to be able to find people to play with whenever I might want is a pretty huge plus for me. Exactly. The most diffi...

Re: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013

Is it possible to play Planechase against other human opponents?

Edit: Heh, kind of a late post, but still...Related question: Is Planechase in Magic 2014? How about ..you know..actual Planeswalker cards?

Nginx 404/403

Hello, I frequent a certain entertainment site daily. Today, during a rainstorm, the connection was off for a few minutes (just for this site) - I was checking this with http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com. While the connection was down what came up as a message when I attempted to open the site ...

Re: 1224: "Council of 300"

When a recently uploaded video gets lots of views very quickly, youtube disable the views for a short period of time at 301 views. Is this common knowledge*? I have never seen this before. Apparently I have been asleep at the youtube wheel. *I guess that has never been a requirement for an XKCD com...

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire

He doesn't approve of fanfiction of his works, because the characters are doing all sorts of outlandish things, just to get a more wildly inappropriate and impossible pairing (at least that's my theory). The characters in this fanfic are doing nothing of the sort. He can't really frown at fanfiction...

Re: Hex MMOTCG by Cryptozoic

I think I'm going to have to give this game a try. I'm not giving them any money, because I'm not going to pay money to play a free to play game, but they've hit their goal anyway, so it doesn't matter. The truly free card games are few and far in between, the majority of them are pay-to-have-a-cha...

Re: Hex MMOTCG by Cryptozoic

Er..a debit card, Visa Electron. Not sure if it would go as "Visa" >.< So then semi-random stuff is a no-no. It's got to match whatever was used to set up your payment card. EDIT: Though if it's a gift card or something it obviously has nothing to match to. It's not a gift card, in fact, ...

Re: Game of Throngs

As it is, triPodrick is left as a pointless must-keep up-boob-quota scene. He didn't have to pay them..why, exactly? And, my goodness, the Jaime scene at the end..As a book reader, I knew what was supposed to happen, and it still shocked me. They could've played white noise at the end of the episode...

Re: Bioshock Infinite

I've been unable to run it due to it insisting on DX11, and that my PC's on DX10. I'm running Vista, and while there seems to be some obscure workaround, it doesn't seem to work for me. Any suggestions on what to do? If all DX-related shenanigans fail, any suggestions on how to gorge myself properly...

Re: 1190: "Time"

This..This is still going?? At this point I think it would be safe to say Randall has either had quite a few images stored, or has automated it at some point or other. More likely the first, since I'd imagine automating a sandcastle-building process while still making it look realistic would take qu...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Just a side note: Is this the largest comic thread this forum has seen? I went and looked to see how big Click And Drag was, but the comment number for that has already been outdone. It's kinda interesting to read people watching this unfold. Maybe there is no real end game, and it's a tiny social ...

Re: The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim : Bacon Workshop

So, after years of lurking, I finally registered here, in this forum, in order to post in this topic. I seem to be missing something..or a lot of things, about this game. I think I know basic stuff like, for example, sneak attacks deal 2x or more damage(then again, how does soul binding work?), but ...
