    1. Actually theres a couple canads in my clan and they have this huge store call i think NCIX that is cheaper than newegg on most of their stuff for computer shizzle. FRYS SUCKS.
      I’m excited for this Stray bullet in development project.

    2. Frys is my favorite electronics store, it’s about five minutes from my house and they always seem to have good prices, which is good for when your psu burns out and you want to get back in the game.

    3. i just wanted to say ive really enjoyed the work you guys do. Ive been playing mmos forever as well. It is nice to have someone give some indepth critical reviews of the mmos.
      i had a question to you guys. Have you guys thoght about a game called Jumpgate evolution? Jumpgate is a classic mmo withe a huge following. It is twitch based combat and the original was one of the best pvp ive played in any mmo since it requires real skill to play. Its not your typical mmo since it doesnt take place in some fantesy world.
      Well keep up the good work guys

    4. @Necrotic Thanks! I’ve never played jumpgate. Will check it out when work slows down 😀 :( <– laugh/cry The name sounds familiar, but I cant say for sure…

    5. @Renwalds that’s usually the way I use Frys as well.

      @Connorus you should visit the Frys by my house. I find that the locations seem to yield different experiences. There is one in San Jose that is build like a pyramid. I loved it, they offered great service. About 5 years ago it seemed that nobody in there spoke English and the staff was indifferent to customers. I began to dislike Frys. FRys in Roseville has brought me back to appreciating them as a good chain.

    6. EVGA offers cross shipping on RMA!, so if you need to rma, they send you a new card at the same time you send your old card back in! 😀

    7. @Digitalis Storm I voted for EVGA. So if Ben’s gnomeness fails him, my hardcore snap decision making *skillz did not. Cant wait to find out what he bought 😀

      *However, I did suggest that he look at the reviews, compatibility issues, potential heat problems, etc, and make his decision based from them. I’m a huge review whore 😀

    8. I just listened to this cast, and I don’t get why the volume messes up and gets distorted. We never mess with the controls, well rarely, and they somehow get wacked and jacked every time we begin a new cast. This next weeks sound should be better.

    9. Whats up Necrotic. I haven’t heard of that game either but will look into it. Glad to have you on board, and may our story telling adventures bring happiness to both you and your loved ones for eternity :D.

    10. Since the NDA is lifted now… i must say im disappointed with the solo potential in this game cause its non-existent. The new addition of the carebear guard towers near half the wilderness banks completely screwed solo pvp over and the fact that you have to run 1.5 hours to get to the bind stone and then another 10 min for 30 min (20 looking, 5 stalking, 2 fighting, 3 resting) of action if you call that action. I’m surprisingly disappointed with the game, potential is huge, Reality right now is not. I KNOW ITS STILL BETA but cmon now.

    11. I’m honestly thinking that Mortal (if DFO does not make some huge changes) will be my next long term MMO (maybe what ever this stray bullet crew is working on, even though they haven’t even released any info on the game yet)

    12. @Connor yeah there are a lot of fixes they need to implement. I will be going over some of them tonight. The running non stop in this game to get any piece of action is intense, and yes if you die, have fun running forever again (unless you have someone there to offer you a free rez).

    13. At work at the moment. have lots to say. as soon as i have time ill hook it up. the running thing is a good thing imo.

      @vince i know you have more to add 😀 give it up you little devil. haha

    14. @Lord Keegs Have any specific questions? Fire away. Unfortunately I got jacked and had LIMITED time to play my beta account that I waited over 5 goddamn years for…. work had to fucking pick up at the wrong damn time. haha.

    15. Oh and the jumpgate space theme. once you get into it its not about the space its about the pvp and if you have the actual skill. the space is actually there to make the combat physics interesting. you can still play the original jg theres a free trial if you wanna check it out. jumpgate evolution is in closed beta. Jumpgate is made by netdevil they have actually done a couple mmos (auto assult although a failure)as a part of NCsoft.
