Whatever's least popular. Most likely Sith.

Hello, I'm ARMA 2, or VBS 2 as they call me in the army. This article offends me.

Huh. GFWL is just that horrible that you just try to avoid it as best as possible. This doesn't seem to change this.
 
If they don't have crazy deals or maybe, you know, the same currency world wide (I wub my 90 USD Steam-games <3). That would make me buy a game, but seriously, Impulse, Steam and everyone else is likely to be alot better.

Sort of had a crush on both Morrigan and Leliana in Dragon Age, to the point of it creeping me out. 
 
I'd go with Morrigan, surprises all the fucking time, plus she's smart, sexy and has super nice hair.

There's so much old myths still in circulation I see. 
 
Just run, bike, any form of cardio works. Eat less, instead of hanging up and counting calories (I've done this, it does not work, too time consuming), just eat like half of what you're eating now, or two thirds.  
 
You won't lose all that weight in that short of a time, but eventually it will go away. If you feel like it, smoking actually does make you lose some weight (say 5-10 pounds) because of nicotine that speeds up your metabolism (um or well it burns calories), and this usually happens pretty fast. That being said, smoking is of course horrible for your health. And it's delicious. Mm. Delicious cigarettes. 
 
edit: Oh, eat of a smaller plate. It's psychological and it works well. If you just eat out or fast food, well, then you're fucking doomed anyway. Cook your own food.

Well, that's why I just play on dedicated servers with mature people.  
 
Oh, wait.

By uploading, do you mean torrenting? Because due to the way torrenting works (something to do with 'Packets' and 'Swarms' and other fancy terms) it totally chokes the internet and obliterates any good pings you may have had. I hear the new version of uTorrent is set to fix this, but we'll have to wait and see.  If you are torrenting, I should hope it's totally legal! "  
Torrenting indeed. Of course, 15000% legal. Yeah I know it handles packets in another way, and that just might be it. Didn't think of that.

Matthew, that bandwidth is abysmal in most countries in the world. Given time, the US will have good infrastructure like most smaller countries (America is pretty huge you know), and ya'll yankees will be seeing 100 mbit connections for 20 bucks a month like some of us europeans. 
 
I'd say <5 years. For now, don't use wifi, it can be pretty messed up some times. And I don't really have any conclusive facts on this, but upload speed does matter for latency when gaming. Say I'm uploading alot, my ping will be in the 300-400 range and the game is unplayable. Comparing to when I'm not using it, where I have about 20-50 ping, there's a substantial difference. If you can get an affordable upgrade, go for that.

Not american and I wasn't offended. On the contrary I think the game tries to carry the message that nations really IS the measles of mankind and that we should get rid of it already.  
 
Except the whole hooah-part in the beginning though. Also, notice how you carry a SCAR (or maybe it was a M4) of the same model when you're shooting civilians as when you're shooting terrorists. I find that to be a little subtle nudge.

Well, getting it for PC so I'll have to wait 4 months or so anyway, but -- I'm still not that excited. I played the first game and oh my god was that game repetetive. Such a cheap-ass thing to make EVERY MISSION more or less exactly the same. After about 4 hours, and being halfway in, the only thing that was still made me want to finish it was the whole Animus-thing and what I found to be quite an interesting story. The game itself was just soooo goood daaamn boring after the initial wowfactor worn off. 
 
They say they've fixed all of that, and I sure hope so, because the core gameplay in AC1 was still great, just not alot of variation.
