Aye, I too received such an e-mail. Sender reported as "GameBanshee.com marius_sandu2002@yahoo.com " with the header 'New User Details'. Brief glance at GB Discussion and a thread ('The Forum seems to be having LOTs of problems lately.')mentions some kind of server hacking incident last month?

Labelling the Thatcher government as maniacs is a bit OTT isn't it? As for Phil well every family has a black sheep. Thankyou for filling out the picture of the Royals, warts and all best to balance my advocacy with a touch of realism. As for Queeny, yes she reads her lines very well the Opening of ...

*raises hand* I know (and enjoy) Gothic! I think back in the day (RPGDot.com comes to mind, sadly now dead) the European RPG fan sites handled a lot of the Gothic coverage. Indeed, there was something of a split in opinion/communities (only from my perspective I must add) between those that thought ...

Very nice rendition :)

In a similar vein, more of a BG tribute, there was a great piece of fan made music called 'Child of the Murder God' (based on the Bhaal theme) recorded from a grand piano which I also recommend.

NearInfinity or InfinityExplorer (memory is vague, might be wrong) are good tools for exploring all (or most of) the resources in your Infinity engine games.

Not sure where you'd have to look, but they should be in there somewhere.

If not, there's always Print Screen ;)

And for the wedding: 20 millions out of British tax-payers pockets for that? Ouch! Would chip in again . While holding Social Democratic views I'm still a staunch monarchist. The Monarchy forms an integral part of the British Constitution, and provides the last failsafe against a maniac government....

Haven't seen the place buzzing since Ravager et al. got booted lord knows how long ago. Fable has gone walkabout too now :confused:

In fairness, it's mainly SYM that has quietened down. The game forums are still fairly active.

Look up 'reserve ratios' relating to banking to toss in some technical mumbo jumbo with regards to what Obsidian was saying.

It's completely ridiculous how countries such as the UK can't handle a little snow Most of the country managed fine, it was just London (which ofcourse is always the headline grabber and defines the days news) which simply ground to a halt with the snowfall.

Typical January weather in London. Rainy and grey, with a chilling bitterness in the wind.

IMO, Bioware went down the tubes when they released NWN1, so I frankly don't think it would make that much difference who owned them. Agreed. NWN was a big dissapointment for me, and since then they've gotten steadily worse in a sense. Their games still have a highly polished feel, but they have ju...
