Re: I need a Game Recommendation

edit: l0l okay, I figured nothing like that would exist. Since I'm home for break and there's rather spotty internet, I'm looking for a game I can put a lot of time into offline while still having rewarding multiplayer play. One example of course is Diablo, but D2 isn't really interesting to me at t...

Re: Mysterious lag spikes, probably PPStream-Induced

Yeah I've noticed that my 2wire has about as many options as a rock.

I think I'll just have to deal with it for now, since I won't be living her for much longer anyway. I guess the best solution is just to purchase hardware.

Thanks everyone :3

Does anyone play EDH/Commander? Our flat plays 2-3 games every day, and we're kind of getting over some of the decks we're using, and I've got a bit of spare cash and would like to buy cards for a new one. Does anyone have any recommendations for generals that are particularly fun/crazy? Nothing to...

Before I had to offload my cards I used to play in an EDH tourny at a local shop every weekend. It was pretty much entirely made up of Spikes and a couple Johnnys.
