Sin II on the Way?

It looks like a Sin sequal is in the works over at Ritual. They're put up a teaser website and they're leaving plenty of hints that the game is coming. I hope this one is less buggy than Sin 1 was. It was an excellent game let down by endless stability problems.


I decided to take a couple of days off over my birthday weekend, and go figure it's steaming hot and humid. I hate humidity.

On another note, I finally picked up Doom 3 ROE again after a longish hiatus, and while there is a lot to complain about in missing story (it's hard to avoid that after playing Deus Ex) I am really enjoying the game overall. The gravity gun is not so powerful as the one in Half Life 2, so you really need to practice with it. It also makes some situations where your normal guns really suck very easy to overcome, especailly the cherubs. Thanks for the tip on those A.T. I was trying to kill them with the shotty. Slinging them against the wall with the grav gun is MUCH easier :-)

Pondering the Imponderable

Well, I finally got Neverwinter Nights working again after installing the 1.66 patch. Apparently I had some permissions problems with the dialog.tlk and data/xp2patch.bif files. The default permission was 700 for those files and I really needed 664, especially the part about making them group-readable. I think it's all fixed now. We'll see if something pukes mid-game :)
