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.

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

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?

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
