A trope that should stop:

growling lead characters in movies. Any new Christian Bale action movie (batmans, terminator) he's basically talking like he deep throated a wire brush.

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.

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
