Pick A, pick A, pick A.
Ruling the galaxy will become fresh again when the first Sins mini-expansion comes out in a few weeks. Malaria is never fresh or exciting.

I take it that the main character in Far Cry 2 couldn't afford a mosquito net?

Does the game really open with you being bitten by a mosquito?

He spent all of his money on bullets and couldn't aim well enough to hit the thing before it bit him.

He gets malaria during the jeep ride in the opening sequence.

Unnecessary Spoiler tags!

Trust me, it's the right thing to do. Would I mislead such beautiful women?

Oh noes! Maybe I should just continue to stay away from this thread... Why do I keep coming back?

I will have to say, Kielaran, malaria doesn't sound good...

Don't knock it 'til you've tried it!

I haven't been bothered by the malaria aspect of the game, but see how some people are.

Well, if you do, I'll let you know if I was pleasantly surprised (can anyone be pleasantly surprised by malaria?)

Speaking of malaria, I was talking to this lady at a luncheon a few weeks back and she kept going on about how fat she was (she wasn't THAT fat) and stated that she had tried to go on a few mission trips to Africa for the express purpose of catching malaria. According to her, you lose 25 pounds during each bout of the disease and it tends to recur 4 times, so that was her way of easily shedding 100 pounds without going to the gym.

I wonder about the human race sometimes...
