I've used OpenFire in the past and really liked it. I would also setup that Exchange server and install something like Sharepoint Express, it's free.
That's weird, I have the opposite observation, I used to play when I was a kid and recently restarted playing to show my 12 yo and I feel like everything is so simple now. They are no more "flip a coin card" and no more card that the text is so long that it fills up the whole space and is written in minuscule letters.
I wouldn't have bought Louis C.K.'s videos if they were DRM protected. And always wanting more is called greed.
Is it a pleonasm to say "plan ahead"? Isn't planning always ahead? You can't plan for something that already happened.
Yes you will have to be online all the time, even when going solo. This is my biggest complaint about this game so far.
