The Sims has always been about marketing. EA puts a lot of stuff up that you can either buy, or not buy. A lot of the arguments against the monetization that EA has going on is therefore one sided, narrowminded and most of all, false.
So if you take a look at the top nav bar, I've decided to do away with tournaments. After looking at the landscape of 2o2p now compared to where it was 6 years ago, the idea of having tournaments within the site probably doesn't make a lot of sense anymore. Most people play online against people outside of 2o2p. While I've always loved the idea of member tournaments the loss of custom games in most new releases doesn't make the idea very compelling.
So I told Doodi I would try to campaign some 2o2p sponsored cars at some upcoming televised events. On of the first will be the Italian GP coming up Sept 20. Not being very skilled in the "painting" department, I figured I would get a head start. Never mind the fact the car is a bit of a handful to drive.
While the four friends are underway to Denerim, Loghain elevates his biggest sycophant, Randon Howe, to leader of the Denerim Guards and as a personal advisor. The obvious weasly nature of Howe makes him an unlikely ally to Loghain, but maybe Loghain thinks that dire times call for strange bedfellows or maybe Howe was best choice out of the pool of people who are still loyal to him and Loghain is making do with what he's got.
I believe that if you do a hobby, you have to do it right. There's no sense in doing gaming and then restrict yourself to one system. My pet-system is still the 360 though, even if I sold off most of the games I bought for it over the years.
