"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money, and with the flick of the pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take away from them the power to create money and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But, if you wish to remain the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create money." Josiah Stamp (Governor Bank of England 1928-41)

Well considering they have issues getting videos on their own site working flawlessly that doesnt surprise me.

Judging by the FAQ it seems it will be sharded. :(

And am I correct in thinking that the only difference between the 30, 35 and 40 dollar options is the title you'll get?

You guessed right. That isn't solved by todays servers. Ad the load is heavier and moor is done serverside. I did read there would be around 100 peeps per server and a friend option so you are on the same shard as your friends

former roommate.

LONE STARR:  What's that make us?

about to become. Prepare to die.

Threadomancy.

I was expecting some embossing for the serial number, but it's flat as a walrus penis. Name blanked out for interwebs reasons.

I opened the hangar module and I have never seen my laptop have such a hard time running something.

Also, the ship is fucking tiny. Is that what you were referring to with statue?
