Brown bananas = time to make banana bread with chocolate chips and pecans.

I don't always hVe time/room for epics... I love hVing some stand Alones around, or even trilogies but longer than that starts to cause some fatigue. A lot of epics just seem to have a lot of filler...

I buy physical copies of stand Alones and keep series on my Kindle

Some good stand Alones:

Curse of Chalion, by Lois Bujold McMaster
Love the characters and interesting world building in this one. Lois goes on to write more books in the same world but each one can stand alone.

Gospel of Loki, bu Joanne Harris
The tales of the Viking gods, from Loki's point of view. Full of snark.

I pretty much just followed Square back then since they had so many quality games.

SNES --> PS1 / N64 --> PS2 --> XBOX360 / Wii ---> Ps4 / WiiU

Plus all handhelds.

N64 had so little. I never bothered with GameCube. I went Xbox because at the time many games were coming out for both but Xbox had the edge with Mass Effect and Lost Odyssey.

Went PS4 because that seems to be the RPG console,

Headphone jacks.

No, really. I am legally deaf and have hearing aids. I often got frustrated playing consoles because inevitably need the volume too high for others. I do have this device that works with my hearing aids that makes music a lot easier to hear (frequency-shifting, etc) that uses a headphone jack.

So handhelds or controllers with the jack? OMG. I can hear my games so well and nobody is getting a headache! :D
Love my new PS4 and the WiiU.

So I have not played the original Witcher or Witcher 2 and my older consoles are in storage pending a move. Is it worth jumping right into 3 or would I be missing too much plot?

True, Magic is also good for wiping out armies of weenies and for healing your party. Do that with your sword and potion.


Pffft. You're not cracking those ever. You HOARD those and never use them "just in case."

Dragon Age, Dragon Age II - duck in door, throw in AOE fireball/ice/lightning spell, send in allies to mop up. Rinse & repeat for total wreckage.

Mass Effect series I played as biotic/sniper. If they are far, send bolts of energy and snipes at them. If they are close, use black hole and happily snipe while they flail in the air helplessly.

Devil Survivor 2 - while a physical/speed build can be devastating, I found the majority of my characters and monsters gravitated to magic in order to hit weaknesses for extra turns.

Fire Emblem Awakening - I made myself a Mage and wrecked the enemies.

TL:DR - if I have a choice in games, I make myself a Mage and do very well in games.

Thank you! The cookie is "life size" so this is a big magnet, but he is very cute :)

I'll just cower in the back until late game when my fireball renders your swords useless.

I don't mind the occasional sexy woman but this feels like a step backwards... I want to play a serious fantasy game, not visit a D&D Hooters.

My husband and I both play but I seem to be the one who researches and buys the games/consoles. He's just happy to raid the ever-growing library and buy the occasional first-person games like Fallout (those make me dizzy). Then again I usually end up buying those games for his birthday and Christmas, ha ha.

He buys most of the MTG stuff though so it evens out. We both play Magic too, and maintain separate decks and pool the rest of the cards.  He likes to play more often then I do so he'll have a guys night out at a bar with cards all over the table!

It's fun when both share hobbies :)
