That AdBlock message has popped up on my iPhone *without* any type of ad blocking, and the mandatory 30-second wait means I'm just not bothering with the site on there anymore...

@  BlackMax : (17 January 2017 - 12:05 PM)

So far it's only happened the one time for me.

@  Ms Virion : (17 January 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I got the popup on a tablet I just bought that I haven't even installed anything on yet. =|

@  Fnu Aw : (17 January 2017 - 09:50 AM)

I've got the same problem. I disabled my adblock on this site, but I'm still getting that message.

@  Jalaguy : (17 January 2017 - 09:38 AM)

I got the ad block warning on my work PC yesterday (with no blocking on), but not my laptop at home.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (17 January 2017 - 08:53 AM)

I wish the ads would stop showing me things I want but can't afford to have

@  Kalidor : (16 January 2017 - 11:15 PM)

Correct

@  BlackMax : (16 January 2017 - 10:37 PM)

So correct me if I'm wrong... it's good that we see the ads, but it's better if we click them?

@  Kalidor : (16 January 2017 - 05:24 PM)

I wonder if any other blockers (javascript, etc) are triggering it. I hate to do it but I have to do something. I don't want to be like Forbes that makes the site un-usable with adblock.. but I do want to remind people that ads are necessary.

@  Dracula : (16 January 2017 - 01:23 PM)

Yeah I had turned off adblock a while ago and got the same message last night.

@  Lazy Garou : (16 January 2017 - 12:38 PM)

anyone seen the korean method 1?

@  Arazyr : (16 January 2017 - 12:11 PM)

I got something similar recently. I think it was due to the site being set up to use https. AdBlock counted it as a different site. I had to update my settings.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2017 - 09:31 AM)

I got it this morning, but it turns out my ad blocker was actually on. I could have sworn I turned it off for the allspark already though...

@  BlackMax : (16 January 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Yeah, so did I. Only one time though.

@  Pennpenn : (16 January 2017 - 03:05 AM)

Got a popup saying I'm using ad-block on this site when I am not. Huh.

@  Bass X0 : (16 January 2017 - 02:29 AM)

In that case I say it is survival of the cutest! Do I hear a second on that? And against?

That's what they WANT you to think. They're already a mashup of at least 3 other creatures. Platypi are already Megazords by themselves.

Well, on Saturday it will be here. Probably my second-most anticipated game of all time (behind KOTOR 2). So far, those of us who don't mind being spoiled by IGN and the like have found out a few things about the game's plot, and seen video highlighting the differences in gameplay.

For those that are curious, here is some non-spoilerific info:

* Your first-game save-games do in fact import to the new game, including which NPCs live or die, and grant your ME2 character bonuses based on your prior level and alignment.

* The game seems much more like a shooter and much more action-oriented. The physics of biotic attacks have been somewhat reworked.

* Several new alien species will be introduced in this game, including at least one that can be recruited into your party.

* As well as several old species.

* At least one party member from the first Mass Effect is still recruitable as a party member in ME2.

* One of the subplots of the first game figures prominently in this one.

I already have a huge backlog of games due to recently buying a bunch of older titles at bargain basement prices from Newegg, but I think ME2 will take precedence. I only played once through the first one though.

I hopefully will have enough funds to pick it up launch da but even if i have to wait it'll be worth it.

I played through the first one twice, could never break level 50 but i feel my second playthrough was the best so i'll be carrying that one over.
I really really hope they made it easier to use Biotics, havign to hkold down Rb and pause the action became a pain in the ass so i just stuck with overload and used that all the time.

Nope, whole new weapon and armor system, makes things like that incompatable.

Paid off the preorder today.

Midnight opening next week. I'm getting it on PC and will be at least installing it that night.
My laptop still has enough power to play games like this.

Though I think this is the last year my laptop will be good enough for new games.

I already have my definitive save (with a decent amount of paragon points) ready with all the side missions completed etc. I'm looking forward to see what my results will be in ME2.


But I'm curious to see how Garrus and Tali will react to my "renegade" play save.

Depends on how you did Garrus. He's pretty renegade himself, if you used the right conversation options!

Yeah, Garrus is the "Cop that doesn't play by the rules." He's always annoyed with how C-Sec can fail to catch a bad guy, becuase of all the red tape. He'll do anything to stop a criminal. You can either encourage that, or discourage that over the course of the game.

In my renegade play threw, I never inivited him to join my team. I pretty much said I didn't trust him for being a Turian and I did not want him on my team.

wonder if there will be any controversy with this game . I recall a dev mentioning something maybe jokingly about love in a Elevator.

Livin it up while I'm going down. Sorry

Can't wait for this to come out . Hopefully the game won't be buggy but we are talking about bioware. Usually their games are so good the faults are overlooked.

A major upside to current generation console games is that the developer can actually update them just like PC games.

True but ME1 was abandoned by Bioware like it had the plague.

Sure we got one decent DLC with Bring Down the Sky, but then they threw pennicle station at us and disappeared.

Heres hoping ME2 doesnt suffer the same fate. Considering there that Cerberus network thing for DLC i doubt it but crazier things have happened.
