Pity! It's actually a reference to "Le Cid" one of the big French classic plays.
Basically, Don Rodrigue challenges the Count to a duel. Problem is, in theatre, duels were not fought on stage.

Therefore, when Rodrigue states "Four steps from here I would show you", he basically says "Let's go offstage and settle this".
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Let's just say after they go offstage, the Count doesn't appear again for the rest of the play...

Sophia Loren is in a film version of that. Stunningly beautiful she is in it too. Way before my time, but boy they do not build them like that nowadays. Mores the pity...

Sorry...ignore my wistful imaginings. Carry on.

The only area of the game where the real money store gives a nice leg up of in game "power" is in pet battles.

And how many people (not just on RP realms) apparently (based on forum and blog posts seen) really wish we could mog to whites/greys too. heck, I wouldn't mind myself.

But I'm also one of those 'hey, can we have a non-WWE title belt tier for plate?' people.

Data mining is trash for the most part.

GC tweeted they wanted to add HoPo generation to Selfless Healer for Holy Spec as a way to prop up that talent against the other two on the tier.

not to me it doesn't - implies that it may allow it to generate 1 *additional*, since it basically sucks compared to SS or EF for pretty much all situations IIRC.

I don't think those pets from store are really that strong. I have XT and KT and I think XT is good, but not something special and KT is in my opinion meh. Granted, my pets are not level 25 and I haven't pvp with them. Or could be that I just suck at pokemon :D

There has been a blue confirming it's just a datamining bad, the talent simply makes holy also have the 1 HP off Judge.

That's actually a bit of a pity. It might have made Selfless Healer strong enough to vaguely see Sacred Shield's boots amidst the dust it left SH in.

Here's my issue with AAA narrative games. The narrative more often than not pulls you out of playing the game to put you in either cut scenes or QTEs. Mass Effect is pretty much exposition>combat>exposition>combat>exposition>combat for 100+ hours. Tomb Raider is similar with cut scenes in-between shooting or platforming sections. I don't know how to solve that issue besides just a general want of having narrative happen while I play the game. FC3 comes close in that the cu scenes are relatively short and then they send you off to basically play the story missions in pretty much the same manner as you play the rest of the game.

Also lessening the documents/voice recordings as methods of in-game world building would help me a lot too.

I also get that QTEs allow you to have "boss" fights in games that don't really fit the video game mold of bosses being a thing.

Realizing I've been caught in the meterpadding fashion.

Decided I'm not even going to look at healing meter again in our main raid. Just was ending up destroying my performance just for the sake of sniping heals.

Someone mentioned a game from steam summer sales, and I ended up spending just under 40€ - and I'm not even at a computer where I can install any of them, and won't be till wed.

(FC3, ETS2 and Tropico4)

Edit:
Additionally GF now says that computer equipment isn't from our shared savings, so if I want a steering wheel for ETS2, I have to pay for it myself.. :cry: )

Let me join you on this.
Haven't had any crash for months, then since the last minipatch I often get some, with the annoying effect of losing every macro / addon change I might have done.
