My dwarf wizard just hit level 2 in the Pathfinder game I'm in right now. Just rolled my 1d6 for his hitpoint gain. Rolled a 1. This song immediately came to mind.

An amazingly well done suit of armor, I *wish* I could put something like this together. I have this dream of putting together a cosplay outfit of the Mandalorian Hunter set.

Sometimes, TOR's random dye availability really irks me.

Kang White/Blue suddenly decided to pull a major disappearing act. On a lighter note, White/Grey is surprisingly cheap as of this writing.

TiVO How did you know White/Blue was what I wanted? :-) I have three Troopers who must be in Republic White/Blue, and all their companions must match. I would happily throw my CC at BioWare for this dye, but instead, they make it random.
Kang Because White/Blue are the Thirteenth's colours! :) I'm looking for it too and pulling my hair out. The rare time it shows up, it becomes crazy expensive. Wasn't like this for that colour a few months ago. Who'da thunk? I wonder what these "fashion improvements" they're talking about in the future will be. Though I'm thinking that'll just mean separating armor stats from clothing items.

Kjara It really is annoying. :/ They could just put them on the CM for a fixed amount (heh, not as much as the black dyes were selling for...), such that the gamble packs *might* be a good investment or they might not. Or -- this just occurred to me -- you could unlock them in Collections, but you'd have to pay a small CC amount every time you wanted a new copy. So you'd have a choice of trying to hunt one down for credits or coughing up some CC, but at least you'd know they'd be there. :/

So I think I figured out why at 6:00 PM yesterday I could log in to SWTOR just fine, and why at 8:45 PM I couldn't. I don't have anything to back this up, but I strongly suspect that setting up an and loading the Origins launcher in order to DL Dragon Age at 8:15-ish set like some sort of global EA product password.

That's the only thing I can think of. I have a very specific mnemonic that I (used to) use, and I verified that all the buttons on my keyboard were working, so I am 99.9% positive I was getting my password correct.

Nimue Lovely, great job, EA :-/ Can you get back in now?
3 comments
TiVO Yeah, I called BioWare Customer Service, they had me do a password reset, and I popped right back in.
Nimue Glad to hear it was sorted out in a timely fashion. That's definitely *not* the kind of thing you want to happen on a Friday evening (or any other time, I suppose.)
TiVO You can say that again!
AmonRe That does make sense, at least you did get it sorted (and in time for Imp Ops too).
2 comments
TiVO Yeah, glad I was able to make it to Imp Ops, but the few seconds of my life lost by the panic of thinking "OMG, I've been hacked" I will never get back.
AmonRe Yeah, that would be scary.
Kjara Yes -- the Origin password is the same as your SWTOR password. I had to go through a couple of self-induced password resets after I figured that out. :S
2 comments
TiVO That's bull-honky.
KnightMage315 Why they have it set up like that I will never understand.
Sami_jo It's because your EA password encompasses all things EA, including SWTOR and Origin.

Dragon Age: Origins Is Free On PC Right Now

To prepare for next month's Dragon Age: Inquisition, EA's giving out the first game in BioWare's fantasy RPG series on the house right now. You'll need an Origin account to download a free copy of Dragon Age: Origins, but hey, it's a great game, and it's

Ismene I'm not sure how well it's aged, but it is one of my favorite games. Right up there with Mass Effect 1-2, and the KOTORs.
0 comments
Nimue The first one was a really great game, I loved it. Needing an Origin account is of course a drawback since it's even more intrusive than Steam, but the game is still one of my favourites.
0 comments
Sami_jo It is one of my all time favorite games. The replayability is huge. There is nothing earth shattering about the gameplay and graphics, but the story is awesome, the companions are orders of magnitude more developed than in SWTOR, and the different origins and parts of the main quest vary with gender.

Bunch of co-workers are sittin' next to me, talkin' Destiny. If I hadn't picked up Skyrim on Steam for $5 on Friday, I'd probably be insanely jealous right now.

As it is, I just want to go home and play Skyrim.

Yup. Harry Potter has *ruined* a part of Star Wars for me.

I can no longer read the word "smuggle" without thinking someone has misspelled "muggle." The word looks so foreign to me now.

One of these days I will own a set of gaming headphones that do not hurt my scalp or ears...

Nimue Let me know when you find one, I'd be glad for a recommendation :)

Kjara D'oh! :) What have you tried so far?
0 comments
TiVO Nothing serious, Kjara. For some reason, I have this aversion to spending more than $20 - $30 on a headset.
5 comments
Kjara Understandable, especially when the "serious" gaming headsets can get pretty pricy. I've had this one since SWTOR launch and I rather like it: [link] They have a corded version that (naturally) is cheaper. The one downside is that you can't charge and use it at the same time :/ But as long as I have it charged before an Ops or something, I've never had a problem with it lasting 4-5 hours in an evening.
TiVO I looked at those, Kjara, but there was a review that indicated they were pretty uncomfortable, especially with glasses. Do they get hard on your scalp and/or ears when you've been wearing them for a couple hours?
Kjara They really don't, which is surprising. I don't, however, wear glasses, and I imagine that could be a problem with many headsets. :/ Re: the reviews, I actually find the comments about the headset being tight rather surprising -- I have a big enough head/thick enough hair that ladies' hats very often don't fit right, but my headset, if anything, is kinda loose. (Not to falling off, but it's definitely not tight.) Maybe some of that is breaking it in, I dunno.
Kjara (Ultimately, I suppose finding a comfy headset is just as personal as finding good shoes!)
TiVO That's a good point, I wish we could try on headsets like we can try on shoes.
