Dragon Age Return to Ostagar DLC release announced
but then delayed. A retail expansion is rumored here for March
and confirmed by Bioware
The DA Return to Ostagar DLC got delayed because of problems Bioware discovered just before releasing it (see here
and also here)
. The new release date is TBA. A patch for 360 will be released at that time as well.
Some of us played some Bayonetta
Important discussion about MMO account security
There have been reports of massive problems with accounts getting hacked in games that are operated/owned by NCSoft (including Aion and Guild Wars), possibly due to NCSoft's security holes
. The community manager for Guild Wars, Regina Buenaobra, mentioned in her wiki that there were some changes in the password resets in the NCSoft master accounts
describes how to use Control+C (copy) to copy your password from NotePad and then Control+V (paste) in the space where you input your password so that key-loggers can't hack your account.
Blizzard has been using authenticators as an additional security option
, and apparently is considering making them mandatory.
How would you feel about co-op play for ME2 and DA? We discuss it.
's blood sugar's a little low at the start of the cast. Later he tells Jae
to 'eat the mic'. leXX
sings for us this time, and Darth Groovy
tries to say 'MMO'. Jae
actually eats her mic later. We have a short discussion on how we want to die before we move on to discuss Jae's
Gilbert Gottfried impression. We wrap up by saying (or not saying) 'goodbye'.
