    So awesome. Everything about it seems better (and I love the first game). Especially the characters; the characters are fucking awesome.

    Everything in this post is correct.

    Ooh Than - make sure you get the Arc Projector DLC. You get to use it right away, and it is the funnest heavy weapon in the game.

    There are lots of flies, mosquitoes and spiders here. I have no idea what would give you an impression that there aren't. This isn't the tundra you know.

    People in cold countries have no goddamn clue about flies, I tell you what.

    I do have a clue about flies.

    How many flies enter your mouth every second? If the answer is less than eight don't even bother talking to me.

    I doubt you have that many flies entering your mouth every second.

    You may have more flies than us but there are still a huge bunch of insects flying around here every summer, because it's a wet country and evil creatures seem to thrive because of it.

    Actually I live in the UK now, so I'm in a pleasantly fly-free zone. And I've never even been to Sweden, you could have giant killer locusts for all I know.

    they don't eat birds regularly, though, it's more of a rare and delicious treat

    Even Scotland, a place filled with glaciers and a terrible undead creature called the Haggis has terrible winged insect problems in the summer. I had always laughed off the tales of the Midge, until I went driving in the Highlands one summer. I stopped a pleasant looking river near Loch Lomond, opened the door and started walking towards the water. About 1 minute later I was back in the car, furiously slapping my arms trying to stop the biting. I have never experienced anything like that before or after

    Praying mantis's are the badasses of the insect world. There was a series of pictures where one pretty much just stabs a hummingbird through the chest and then starts eating it.

    Basically, don't get all uptight about hoarding heavy weapon ammo. You will have so much fun with it (also there's actually a lot of HW ammo about).

    Nobody ever takes the midges seriously until they have been exposed to them.

    I dread to think how many of them I've eaten over the years riding bikes in the Trossachs.

    Aside from those though, our wildlife is decidedly un-dangerous. But the mosquitoes can really ruin a lot of outdoor fun.

    No poisonous things, but I'm still terrified of the spiders. I've even petted bird-spiders though, I seem to only have a problem with small ones and the larger ones that have freaky body types.

    Like that one eating the bird in that image.

    I think you are right on that first point - it just does sound unbelievable - I mean how bad can it be? Back in NZ we have loads of flies and other flying stuff, including horrible sandflies, but they don't quite measure up to the Midge

    I think what always gets people is the fact that they naturally form big slow-moving clouds, are too small and numerous to swat, and that despite their size they can bite through clothing.

    Gamestop was a success. A word of warning: I was paranoid about not getting into the beta after days of waiting so I got my receipt and entered the code right there in the store from my phone. It failed! Three times! I showed the cashier and he was mystified. The other employee there talked to the guy who checked me out, they cancelled by previous order, tried again entering the promotional offer code manually and a new code came out. I tried that on my phone and:
