I'm tired of them taking cartoon characters from my childhood and making shitty CG movies.

I personally don't like that idea because you lose the ability to have conversations that compare the two. Also some interesting conversations could possibly include both genres.

I like the podcasts the way they are but I'm going to stop listening if you change.

Yoda, I would recommend you stay far away from the Sword of Truth books. I actually kinda liked the first two, but then it just kept getting weirder and weirder.
I read, I think, the first 2 or 3 Wheel books. They were fine, but a bit plodding, and I left for greener pastures. Hope you enjoy them.

I just finished Black Sun Rising, which is the first book in the Coldfire Trilogy by C.S. Friedman. I found the story to be a bit basic, but the characters fascinating. I'll be getting book two from the wife for Christmas.

I am also reading I'm Dreaming of a Black Christmas by Lewis Black. It is surprisingly unfunny.


By weird do you mean all together just far out and non-traditional or ridiculous and implausible?

The latter. Goodkind got himself in a corner way too early in the story arc, and was forced to turn Richard into some super powered hero dude who keeps coming across impossible enemies. It's almost laughable. It's like he was planning it to be a trilogy, but when it became popular, he had to alter the story so he could write more books, and make more payola. I gave up a long time ago, and never looked back.


Damn, well that does not bode well.

I'll give them a shot though in the future (far future) since I'm not reading two hugeass fantasy series at the same time. I've got some good crap saved up from thrift store diving to alternate with the wheel of time series.

I'll probably play this after DA2 based on how I'm doing w/ the games I have now.

If it does suck I'm going to Canada on a little vengeance vacation

Ha. Yeah probably.

The dragon quest theme, imho, is generic as all getup though.

I'm lucky my +1 does not play any sort of games.

No grudge holding, none of that crap where they pretend not to be mad and only gets more mad because you missed something, and most importantly has a damn sense of humor.

god. get a new soundtrack already

Just read most of the preview on the mainpage (glossed over most of the story section)

I liked the origin story approach in the 1st game but that left you with a sort of nameless character and several generic quests leading into things.

Hopefully in DA2 we get a better sweeping story and better conversation scenes. I loved the conversations choices in DA1, and the voice acting was incredible, but the main character always had the same stupid look on his/her face.

I'll be playing on 360

I actually tried to re-read the series at one point, and even as a fan, I had to break things up. Read one WoT book, then one non-WoT book.

There's absolutely a storyline for the whole series.  It's about the Dragon Reborn* preparing for the final battle against... basically Satan, who is about to break out of the prison he was put into thousands of years earlier and take over the world.

*Not trying to be pretentious there - I just don't want to ruin anything if you don't know which character that is yet.

Even after 11,000 pages, the series isn't quite over yet - there's one more book to go, scheduled to come out in about a year.  Robert Jordan died a few years ago, but knew that he was going to die without finishing the series, so he took tons of notes, recorded hours and hours of sessions talking about what needed to happen, and picked someone to finish the remaining books.  The new guy has done a really great job so far, though.

I've only read the first Sword of Truth book... so I'll leave the comparison to someone else.  I prefer the Wheel of Time series, though.
 

Cool, thanks!

the only thing i dont like is the character Lan. The way he calls everyone by their profession: "come, blacksmith" "listen to me sheepherder" is annoying
