  1. Whisper of a Rose is another one with mouse control. Unfortunately, it's not available at the moment. It had a rushed released and was too bug-filled to play. The maker is working on fixing it and will re-release it at some point. It's not clear when it will be done but it looks worth keeping an eye on.

    Swine Flu

    There's still media coverage of it, just do a search in google news. You'll find lots. It's just not in the main headlines. The media and public tend to have a short attention span when it comes to news stories. Also, I wouldn't take the confirmed number of cases as an indication of how wide spread it is - there are more cases than ones that are tested. Also, the WHO recently recommended that countries with known cases to stop testing all suspected cases until it's a severe or unusual case. They know it's out there and spreading at this point and are not trying to find the best use of resources to deal with it.

    Timeline?

    There is an explanation in AV1 about the change in maps between AP and AV1. Alot of the area in AP was destroyed. Also, you can just think of it as a really big world that we don't always all of during each game.
  4. Can you be more specific by what you mean? What exactly are you trying to do?
  5. You can't just blame the news crews for pushing their way into his life. They wouldn't be there if the public wasn't interest and wanting to know every detail of his life as well.

    Avvies and Siggies

    New siggie and shameless advertising.
  7. @Beckss: Actually, from what I've seen, there isn't a guarantee that the two older kids will go to the ex-wife. She gave up her custody rights and would have to reclaim them. It's likely she'll get them but not 100%.
  8. I feel bad for his kids. Hopefully, they don't end up in a nasty custody battle.
  9. @Paralel: It's not difficult to find the save game file and copy it to a USB key manually. There are instructions on how to find the file in the technical issues FAQs, if you're not sure where to find it.
  10. I wouldn't mind being able to steal item or better yet spells from enemies. I didn't buy too many spells during the game because of the price, I was more concerned with healing items and equipment for the characters. But I really wished I had them since none of the characters used offensive magic. I didn't use Stella too much in battle since I found it hard to keep her alive but would use her after a battle to heal the others.
  11. But on the other hand, too much interference by other countries can be used as propaganda by the current government, especially if they stay in power. The most I could see is sanctions against Iran. Actually using force would be a bad thing. It really is a fine line and can cause more problems than it solves. Just look at the 1979 Iranian Revolution. The US supported the Shah who was ousted then and the relationship between the two countries has been strained at best since then. As much as I would like to see things change in Iran, the change really should come from within the country. And like I said before, I'm not sure that this will end well if the current government stays in power. It would be impossible to continue as if the protests never happened. For the sake of the Iranian people, I really hope things turn out well.
  12. @hikari_rekka: Where did you hear about Russian troops possibly being used? I haven't seen anything about that and can't find anything about it either. FYI: Here's a short Newsweek article about vote-rigging indicators and whether they were present in the Iran election. It hard to say for certain but there's enough to make you wonder.
  13. I curious what people think of the election protests going on in Iran and crackdown by the Iranian government. I've read an analysis of election results and needless to say they are questionable but the government refuses to have a recall on the election and claim that the results are legitimate. As for the protesting, it's really hard to see how this will end well. Do you think it's the beginning of another revolution? I'm also wondering what people think of the international reaction to it and if, and how much, other countries should intervene. One on hand, it's hard to countries to sit back and say nothing but if they intervene too much, it can be used against them by the Iranian government. If you don't know about it, it has been all over the news for the past week. People within Iran have been using several of the social networking websites, like Twitter and Youtube, to get information out since the Iranian government is censoring the media and blocking numerous internet sites. I won't post any links to the videos since they can be very graphic, so use your own discretion on finding and watching those.

    Swine Flu

    @Stardale: I would be very surprised if the current pandemic has a similar death rate as the 1918 pandemic. It was a very different time period from today and medical technology wasn't as advanced as it is today. The majority of the deaths from that pandemic were due to secondary bacterial infections which are more easy to treat nowadays, penicillin hadn't even been discovered at that point. It would be more realistic to compare it to more recent influenza pandemics, like the Asian Flu of 1957 or the Hong Kong Flu of 1968. The estimated deaths for those were 1~4 million and 1 million respectively. That is still a lot of people but nowhere near the 50+ million killed by the 1918 pandemic.

    Swine Flu

    It still has to be tested.
  16. @Ashen_Eclipse: Errr...and having the wolves come and eat him isn't more disturbing?
  17. Well, some people don't want to bother with Google and maybe it's useful if you can't or don't want to go online all the time for help.

    Swine Flu

    But the H1N1 is already a combination of swine, avian, and human influenza.
  19. @Nightmares_poet9: Yes, Lord of Twilight is the first book of the Orb of Magic Series. Gates of Night will be the second.

    Swine Flu

    @iPink: No, it didn't go any. It's still around and spreading very well. The media just wasn't covering it as much as they used to, go figure... There's still been plenty of information about it, you just had to know where to look. Also, rising the alert was not sudden. They've been talking about it for a long time. @puppis: I understand now, it just didn't makes right away. It seemed like a random comment to me.

    Swine Flu

    What does the water have to do with influenza?
  22. There are four wine delivery quests that I found: Lord Rupert in Thais Petra in Gheledon Fritz in Harburg Drew in Strombend and you're also missing finding Tad's lost dog, Rowf.

    Swine Flu

    If anyone has been paying attention to the H1N1 outbreak recently, the WHO is close to declaring a pandemic, though some would say it's already there. They're meeting tomorrow to discuss it. For those who think the number of cases are too low to be considered a pandemic, keep in mind these are only tested and confirmed cases. Not all cases will be tested, the estimated number of cases is much higher than the confirmed case, that's how disease surveillance works. Some places that aren't even bothering to test anymore despite there being cases. Also, a pandemic doesn't have to do with the severity of the disease just how wide spread it is. I do know some people who have gotten sick from it in the past month, luckily I haven't gotten it. I really hate having the flu.
  24. *steps in to make a counter point* But if games are all set at different prices, I'm sure people will complain and moan about higher priced games and want them at the lower price. The main point that I get from it all is that people have certain expectations about the quality and length of specific games (in this case AV games) regardless of the prices. They want everything very cheap but still want the highest quality and long length as before. And I must say some of the games that they sell at BFG at the same price, pale in comparison. If the prices goes down, something has to give. Luckly, it's not the quality of the game, just the length of the game. And we get the extra bonus of more releases in shorter time
  25. I'm sure the side quests will be added eventually, at least the main quests are included.
