Re: Knights of the Old Republic MMORPG

Your quality scale is based on how long it takes to finish the game? When I pay for a game, I want some content. i'm glad I bought Jade Empire second hand. And length is not only a part of the scale, but also an indication about the quality: I tend to rush bad game. What disappointed me was that I ...

Re: French soldier accidentally loads gun with live ammunition

I'd be very interested to hear what you've found on the matter; this seems so odd that there has to be more to it.

Re: French soldier accidentally loads gun with live ammunition

Stop the wild guessing, pals. i'm folloing some reliable french blogs about the events. If it has any interest, I'll try to translate some parts of it. That's the sort of argument I'd expect from a frenchman. Don't sink to their level. I find this EXTREMELY offensive. I hope it's an internet argument.
