- Apparently, the release build of Rift does not like my graphics card, because it causes it to overheat and shuts my laptop down. Eerily enough, this is precisely what caused me to stop playing Warhammer back in the day. I haven’t been to the forums yet tonight to find out if it’s a thing, but I’m on my way right after this post.
- Someone has been trying to brute-force my Guild Wars account, so now it is locked and I have to play the (now famous) “let’s see how well you remember your credit card number from five years ago!” game, instead of the game I paid for.
So, no, I haven’t been playing Rift along with the rest of you intrepid Guardians and Defiants (or waiting in queues, if that’s more representative of your activities). I hope you’re having fun.
I thought the latest Norn (and PAX East demo) reveals from ArenaNet would keep me warm during my workday while Trion’s servers melted, but they’re going to have to suffice for a little while longer. Fortunately Norn have no need of gaming!
