The Greatest Trick The Devil Ever Pulled Was Convincing The World He Did Not Exist

by Rainier on April 2, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT

Sorry about the lack of news yesterday, but since it was April Fool's Day, a lot of the news stories are usually bogus. That also leads to people not really bothering with legit news items. I'm not a fan of April Fool's Day jokes, and I'm glad I managed to avoid them *knock on wood*, but I have to say that most of them were pretty lame anyhow.

Not much else happening. Played some Stronghold Kingdoms (our House was at war with two other teams, so had to keep an eye on my villages), a little bit of Homefront multiplayer (enjoying it despite the fact that it feels VERY much like Call of Duty) and DC Universe Online.

I have yet to figure out why Crysis 2 shuts down my system in the exact same spot every single time, but I'm going to try a few things to see if I can narrow it down. I bought some new thermal paste, which didn't resolve the issue, so now I'm going to switch out the graphics card, and if that does not work, I'll have to check the PSU and RAM. I also bought a water cooling system for the CPU, but I want to make sure it's not something else before I open the box and can no longer get a refund.
