Show me where it says that in the rules. :P

In all seriousness, I'd gladly review any of those awful remaining books if I could get my hands on any of them. :(

I think I can get Savage Dragon, so you can put me down as claiming that one Amlah. I'll tell you if I can't get it by today.

Norton sucks. I am surprised it still exists. I use AGV, and never have problems. (I also use Firefox as a browser.) Others say Avast is a good program, but I haven't tried it. AGV is free for home use, and they have a professional model, too. I'm told Avast is free, too, but I haven't checked it out.

at home I use Kerpasky (thanks JUDE)
I was using AGV or AVG whatever it is, but I had a similiar virus to the one I am fighting today that took out my home computer.
This one is a lot easier, but time consuming, I'm bored waiting on malwarebytes...
anyhow, Norton is the bosses decision, maybe this little hiccup will make him rethink.

Norton hasn't been good since like 1994.

You can tell the boss that the virus was from a porn site. Maybe get the other guy fired. But that's probably what he deserves for using a business computer to access porn.

Mass Effect Redemption 2:

I'm busy playing Mass Effect 2 now, and I've just met Liara, as the Mass Effect universe is probably my favorite of all fictional universes, I couldn't resist this comic series, and it's surpassed my admitedly low expectations.

Liara was Matriarch Beznemas daughter from the first game, and seems vastly different in the second game, a much darker person with questionable motives. I hope she doesn't end up like her mother, but this comic seems to slowly be revealing her slip into a more dark nature. I like the references to the games, the look at Omega whilst Shepard was passed away, and just overall nods to the universe. It's also doing a good job of not contradicting anything, if you're a renegade or paragon on your Mass Effect playthrough.

The story is quite average, with your expected betrayals, expected motivations. It also loses marks because as it's a prequel comic, you know where it's going. That can't be helped though.

The art was very impressive. Not very stylised and captured the look of all the races and Omega quite well. The cover also looks really cool.

Overall better than I was expecting

6.5 out of 10.

don't want the guy who was responsible fired, and wouldn't be surprised if it was the owner, to be honest. I would like the guy who worked on saturday fired though. Anyone know how to manipulate the browser history? :lol:

Siege #2

This is pretty much my perfect comic. It's the lull before the storm as we get to see all the horoes gather and prepare for battle. Thor kicks some ass, Steve has his shield back, and whilst Iron Man isn't there yet, I'm sure he's coming. The Secret Warriors get a lot of screen time which I was happy about.

The Ares part of this comic rocked. Ares has been treated perfectly for a few years, and seeing him kick Sentrys ass a bit before being taken out was awesome. As was Maria Hill showing up. I still have no idea how this is going to end, and that's very exciting as well.

The art is fantastic, apart from one page where I was confused about what's going on, very cool to have the Siege #1 material reprinted right as well, that was annoying last issue.

I can't wait for Phobos to show up, there's so many "geeking out" moments, in this issue as Nick Fury would say.

Overall 10/10. It wasn't the best comic I've ever read, but for what I'm looking for in this story, it was perfect.

Oh, the things I do for the Review Group.

I picked up some real winners! If I'm not still around tomorrow it's because the amount of crap I've read today has finally driven me into the grave.

Updated list...
