I think of Ryan often, especially every TUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUEEEESDAY.
His absence was also strongly felt this year at E3. I felt all the guys did an admirable job, but no one could control a room of drinking, unruly games journalists, programmers and developers better than he could. Ryan, you are missed.
I am at work now, but will be raising a glass later in his memory.
I would just like to say after the last several bombcast email segments, what with all the Australia griefing, the mad shitter talk, the shit talking between scientists and just the overall hilarity that has arisen, it has really made me miss Ryan. I think all these topics would have filled him with a mad glee and I can only imagine what he would have contributed to this conversation.
Of all the times since his passing, this has been a time where I missed his absence the most.
Ok, so last night I was trucking along and beat the mini boss of the No-Man's Wharf area and just got to the Lost Bastille. I have acquired the ring of binding so I have been spending most of my time hollow. Well, I decided to go human so I used a human effigy and much to my suprise, I was now a MALE CHARACTER?! WTF?
I specifically created a female bandit. Has anyone had this happen and is there any way to change it?
The whole online component needs to be completely overhauled. If they fix this aspect, than I am ok with it. If I have friends that I can reliably summon to play with me, then I'm fine with it. If they actually police griefers and prevent them from just invading and killing me over and over, fine.
