Couldn't get the wifi to work so ended up just buying a powerline adapater and I can't believe I had never heard of this technology before! It works amazingly well and easy to setup.Thanks so much again for all the responses, especially the ones who recommended the powerline.

Thanks so much for the responses @Chrjz now that I have a kid walking around and 3 animals the 20ft chord going through the middle of the living room is just paranoia more than anything I guess but I have nearly tripped over it twice now. I do know that a wired connection will always be better but I guess I am just confused since I didn't ever have these problems before while gaming with the wireless connection and now it seems almost impossible minus 2 games which seem to work fine. I am currently at work but will try to run a diagnostic on it when I get back to the house. Thanks again!
So I recently upgraded my computer and ever since then my ping in Battlefield 3 ( up to 1200 ping!) planetside 2, borderlands 2 and even castle crashers make the games unplayable when using my wireless usb adapter (do have drivers updated in both router and for adapter). However, when i play Blops 2 and World of Warcraft my ping is extremely low 30-55 and never spikes playing smoothly which i found odd. I've been using an ethernet cable for the time being but the wire gets in the way and would prefer the wireless. I'm not the most knowledgeable about computers so was wondering if anyone had any tips or an idea as to what it could be. Any other info needed just let me know, it's pretty annoying since before the upgrade things seem to work fine on all games. I seem to be able to download at 2mb/sec on steam and everything else except gaming wirelessly seems to be fine.Thanks in advance for any help and happy holidays!
@mortal_sb "describe some situations where the world is "fillled to the brim with detail and context and tasty morsels of ingenuity and love". it didn't feel any of that. i does not feel like a world that was created with love like the open world of a lord of the rings online or WoW, it feels forced."
That has to be the funniest thing I have read by you so far. It's like you literally just power leveled through the whole game and ignored the enormous amount of hidden content that's out there. Just the fact that you throw LOTRO out there to try and compare to the open world feeling this game has is ridiculous lol. All of your points become invalid to me just because of that quote.
@mortal_sb: Ya I read your post. I mean if you play the hell out of any game you're going to get tired of it. I enjoy all sorts of games so this is nice to not have to worry about monthly payments, stop playing when I want and start up again whenever. Definitely feel as though I've gotten my moneys worth out of the game already. From what I've read about the future content being free to an extent is awesome. If the games not for you anymore then move onto something else.
Nice message from the developers about "endgame" in GW2.
Also about future content updates which it looks like will be free.
"We do appreciate that you’d like to buy lots of new content, but we’d prefer to give a lot of it to you for free, cause that’s what we think a responsible MMO company does! "
Anet won me over with that quote.
