While it's not all of Sony's fault, they have done little to apologize for their delays and arrogant statements. It's a bad trend that they've started, and the more they continue the more we'll be seeing article after article on Gamespot.....day after day about something else they've done to flaw the PS3's image.
I'm sure I'm going to get a lot of flaming cow responses, but hey that's expected. I can understand their crankiness b/c I know I'd hate to be in their shoes atm. Hopefully Sony will have some sort of eye-opener to the amount of distaste they've started among gaming consumers, and will get back to what they used to do best.
AFTER EACH OF THE DATES THERE IS A LINK TO PROVE THE STATEMENT. SEE SOURCE ON GAMESPOT FOR THE LINKS.

OMG... check this out... a screenshot from an NPC in Dungeon Siege 2: Broken World.
In Dungeon Siege 2: Broken World, a forum goer Scero found an NPC that told him about the Dungeon Siege PSP game and offered him a code for it, as well as saying the PSP game had a code for items in the game he was playing. Way to help suspend disbelief. Even worse, this "ad" was voiced by the character. Wanting to advertise in a game is fine, but I think this is kind of sick; characters in games should not try to talk to you about other games the developers want you to buy.

Ive been working on a The Specialists Roleplaying Server for like 2 days lol. Its a long process but it should be up soon. Everything i think i need as far as plugins go and stuff is working good.
If anyone plays on these servers and have any plugin recommendations just post em.
The server im running is like one of the only TSRP servers that are actually running on a real server and not some home pc.
Dual Pentium 3 750 Mhz
768 MB of Error Correcting RAM
20 GB IBM Hardrive
It isnt very good compared to tdays standards but its overkill for a half life 1 mod server lol
