I'm playing it and really digging it.

Some tips are to try every pill you come across at first. If you end up with really cool abilities that you like, do NOT sample any more of them because you are likely to get something you like less.

I love the randomization but then again I've always been a fan of roguelike stuff - it's almost like it's a roguelike Zelda. But then if you don't dig that sort of thing it would certainly be a strike against it.

Biggest tip - early, eat pills like crazy as you find them. But if one gives you an awesome ability, stick with it during that playthrough.

He also may or may not go on quests to find my pants.

Stupid McIhavenoabilities was a guy you invented in the middle of the podcast. He is the character we all play in the early levels of an MMO.

Had an excellent time with Rob and Stupid McIhavenoabilities.

This definitely isn't a bad idea. We'll take a look at it, thanks for the suggestion!

I like Abita. Particularly Turbo Dog. Decent taste for the price.

I live in Delaware so obviously Dogfish is very popular. I like beers that are so hoppy you can chew them best (I like the 120 minute from Dogfish for example) if I'm just having a beer. But if I'm at a baseball game or whatever I have no problem drinking a Bud Lite. Also if I am playing Wizard's Staff it is best to go with something watery like Miller Lite.

I've been drinking a ton of the Twin Lakes IPA this summer though - comes in green six packs and perfect for sitting outside with a brew. Something about summer says "beer in a can" to me.

For liquor I drink bourbon. I always keep a bottle of Booker's in the house, but for a Manhattan (pretty much the only mixed drink I do) I like Bulleit Rye.

Battleheart is fantastic.

It's very tough to go wrong these days. I definitely prefer the iPhone simply because my whole house is wired with Mac stuff - but otherwise there is pretty much no advantage anymore, Android has really come a long way and even passed Apple in a lot of areas.

The only thing I would say is the breadth of apps is still larger on the iPhone, but Android is closing the gap there slowly but surely.

So at this point go with whatever gives you the most bang for your budget - it's an awesome time to be on the consumer side for smart phones!

I’m not telling anyone not to enjoy their comforts. Where are people getting that? Enjoy them! I am *solely* saying complaining about having too many games sounds pretty petty, especially in light of current events.

For the record, not that it’s anyone’s business Leyviur, but I have moved overseas and am working to reduce poverty—not in Africa, but rural Sumatra. 


You must be a blast at parties. Actually having parties is petty, especially in light of current events.

Somebody linked the Acid3 test earlier: might be interested in this - http://limi.net/articles/firefox-acid3/

Point being that some of the "standards" being tested in Acid3 are still up for debate.

It's only up for debate by Mozilla developers and Microsoft, naturally since their browsers don't score 100.  The article uses some clever language such as this cute little bit:

Quote
Opera and Webkit implemented (very brokenly, in at least Opera’s case) a small subset of svg 1.1 Fonts; basically just enough to pass Acid3.

It's flowery language, and it makes me laugh.  This is like the guy who gets a 97 on his physics test bitching that the last three questions weren't the kind of questions he liked and that the two students who got a 100 studied just enough to get those last three points.  It makes him out to be a tremendous toolbag, especially considering that the post was in defense of Firefox 4, which got obsoleted in three months because it was a buggy piece of shit.  Way to go guys!

Eh, laugh if you want. I'll just say that as a guy who earns his bread doing development, it makes perfect sense to me. I'm not trying to pull "position of authority" on you or anything, just saying that the argument is perfectly legitimate, even if you don't like it.

EDIT: Also, are we really engaging in browser wars? Is that really a thing that is happening? Might as well argue about politics, you'll make as much progress.

I use 'em all depending on what I'm doing. I really like some of the Firefox plugins for web development and such, but Chrome is definitely speedy and has some nice built in debuggers.

If I'm just browsing around, I actually like Firefox 5 the best these days.

Seriously, thanks for the suggestion! It does help us know how to prioritize the things we're looking at when we have user feedback!

The problem is definitely time.

I've got the skills as I do that sort of thing (programming) for a living - but I don't do it for RPGFan for a living. See the difference?

The staff all works because they love the site, not because we make anything. When we've got time we do the best we can to improve things. Considering you usually get precisely what you pay for, I think RPGFan does exceptionally. But I'm biased. :-)

For my part I'm constantly looking for ways to improve the site through small increments (like the aforementioned RSS feed and sortable tables for reviews for example), but anybody that thinks it is a "simple matter of programming"... well, frankly probably hasn't done much programming.

Anyway, we've definitely looked at some of those things mentioned in this thread, particularly when it comes to gallery navigation, trust me. But there are factors to consider that you're not necessarily aware of if you're looking in from the outside.

Not the greatest answer I know, and I certainly don't want to discourage suggestions or the desire to help improve the site. Just pointing out that the biggest obstacle when RPGFan site work is our second/third jobs is TIME, not skills.

That and an absolutely massive amount of content... :-)

All of this is a long way of saying that making the galleries easier to navigate is a good suggestion, one that we are in the midst of investigating. Thanks very much!
