IMO, the only way to die in-game would be to set options to manual control (assuming you didn't already do that) and then go away for half an hour or so (while in the middle of a boss fight, mind you!).
Personally, I hated DS2, while I basically loved DS1 - at least in Co-op.

Sorry, it's early in the morning and I just got to my desk. -.-
On April 29th, the second German Game Awards have been bestowed to games with innovative, cultural and educational value. The problem is, it' more or less a big joke (English translation). First and foremost there has to be noted that Anno 1404 and Dawn of Discovery are one and the same game. And second, and this is why Anno won in two categories: no nominated game that featured violence in more than the most abstract form really stood a chance.
And yet, even though the assembled press laughed at them, politicians nationwide proclaim this award an essential step towards acceptance of games as cultural heritage. Oh, come on, how is this gonna help us?"

The high-above-ground-stuff usually preludes some fun boss fights, I tell ya.
Now I just wish the credit would go away and leave me alone.
There, problem solved.
Yet, my best friend just loves FF, while he finds Opera too restrictive (don't ask).
One of my co-workers OTOH prefers IE, although she permanently manages to infect her laptop (yeah, I know: O.o).
So, as far as preference goes, there's all kinds of flavors to choose from, so why all this bickering?
The reason for this is clear: the software being created is just not interesting enough or compelling enough to drive Wii owners to buy more than two [games] per year, [...]
Counting only the real games I possess for the Wii, I'd say it exists for more than 12 years...
[...] and most of those purchases are first party software.
Interesting... What Nintendo Wii is he talking about?
This could work, so long as they surround the car parks with a high kangaroo fence...
Veeery funny. We Austrians have t-shirts explaining the difference because we're sick of talking ourselves black in the face.
Anyway; product placement aside, it really isn't that surprising he predicted wireless communication. I mean, look at his areas of scientific interest and research.
What I'm still waiting for is generation of energy from thin air, preferably cheaply available to anyone.
At least now two alternative engines are starting to get recognition around the world, and newer one of those two seems to strive more for standards compliance (they wouldn't make this post otherwise). There was a time when a lot of sites appeared to be made primarilly with "IE + FF" in mind...which didn't really change that much in the grand scheme of things.
But now perhaps sites will, to a greater degree, simply target standards... (just look at the link above to see why that's great news for you)
No news to me, but thanks again.
BTW, regarding safety of Opera - considering that it's big in post Soviet Block areas (typically #2 browser; in places #1, ahead of IE already)...maybe they just don't want to eat their turd?
I frankly can't figure out an answer to that.
What I meant to say, was that most people dropping off the IE share start using FF or Chrome.
