I've never read Ender's Game... it's sort of coming of as a sci-fi Catcher in the Rye here. Something a semi-pissed off teenager would associate but most grown folk would laugh at.

I just remembered something from High School, it won't help here but it's a funny story.

Our econ and us history teacher was this really weird guy. When he was a kid he shot himself in the shoulder w/ a shotgun, so he was always stretching out his arm in a weird way. He'd take a fucking student desk, and balance the fucking thing on top of another desk and kind of lean on it while he was talking. The funny thing was we never thought it was weird. Good ole HANS.

Well my good buddy was really chummy w/ him. He'd hang around after class shooting the shit. Well the teacher ended up lending him this incredible series of pornographic sci fi books. They were absolutely hilarious. They were about this swashbuckling hero that'd cruise the galaxy and fight bad aliens and make sex slaves out of women. God i can't for the life of me remember the titles but I'm going to try and find them for you because they sound like what the doctor ordered

Oh Japan. If it isn't repackaged crap like pokemon/monster hunter/dragon quest then they don't care.

Fact.

Hai! Hai! Hai!

in one of the books is pretty ridiculous, though.

Yeah you're probably right, Drizzt is a Drow.


I'll look at my friend's goodreads account. The man has read hundreds of scifi/fantasy books in his day.

Old news but this was interesting

I liked both modern warfares for what they were, and I like bad company 2 as well.

Nothing wrong with some solid shoot em up action. But I could never play these long enough to prestige or anything. I think the limit for online time before I grow tired of any game is about 30 hours.

Not that the question was directed at me, but my feeling on the Star Wars books is that there are too many to weed through and pick out the decent ones.  Also, I wouldn't know where to begin, having only seen the movies.

well if that's the issue then Shadows of the Empire and the Heir to the Empire trilogy are awesome reads.


If you REALLY want some trashy sci-fi I recommend THIS

http://www.amazon.com/First-Power-Rogers-Planets-Trilogy/dp/0880388404/ref=sr_1_16?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1295560302&sr=1-16


That came w/ the Buck Rodgers C64 game back in the day.

Yeah, I've heard much about the Foundation books over the years. I'm not sure why I haven't read them.
I also think I'm going to finally read Hitchhikers guide. I bought it awhile back, but haven't gotten around to reading it.


A lot of my friends have been trying to get me to read Hitch too. I will soon, it probably has that blend of humor you're looking for.

Curious, why'd you rule out the Star Wars stuff? There're TONS of books and some of them are quite good.


Another direction (though fantasy, sorry) are the Drizzt books. They seem like quick reads and are plentiful, suggesting high adventure type stuff

I agree, the codex in some new RPGs (DA, ME) is an awesome way to delve deeper into the game.

Especially in ME1 with the smooth sci-fi music playing and that dude w/ a good voice narrating along. Learning about council races was never so fun!

I don't know of any star wars but not star wars type books, but the other day i busted out a huge chest of books i read in HS and came across my isaac asimov collection.

The Robot Series (esp robots and empire) and the Foundation series are incredible. They're all quick reads and span the galaxy.
Some of them are out of print (just Robots and Empire, and Foundation and Earth, i think) but should be easy enough to find in the internet age.

They were HARD for me to track down in the 90s w/o a 'puter.

I haven't read the Empire novels but I own them...

Neither, I thought the game was an absolute bore.

I guess a game with a decent story, entertaining dialog, and various approaches to both the story and combat would be boring, right?
