Kudos to everyone for salvaging what could have been the quickest locked thread in RPGFan history.
I believe the health benefits of wine come from the grapes. Red wine in specific.
A quick googly search netted lots of results:
http://www.healthcastle.com/redwine-heart.shtml
http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/red-wine/HB00089

I'm with Kevadu on pairing wines/beers with food. A good red wine plus steak = delicious.

I am! I was checking gamerankings like I always do and saw this game called Limbo on top. I never heard of it, but checked a few reviews. I was totally sold and dled it over the weekend. The game has a very distinct graphic style and feel. Kinda morbid, really. Some of the puzzles are very clever, and I feel good when I solve them. The sound is sparse, but effective, and works better with headphones on.

The wife and I share a bottle of wine on Saturday night. Two glasses of wine = tipsy, but far from drunk. I have never had any interest in taking it any further. Even when I was younger I never hung out with people who drank much. We had all sorts of fun without it.

If you can't party without alcohol, you don't know how to party.

Ok, so I guess no one has an opinion on Mad World?
Played some more Infamous. Starting to get a bit redundant. Plus I can't stand how the reapers can somehow hit me from several buildings over, but I have to get real close to even have a chance at hitting them.
I downloaded Limbo after reading a few reviews. I love the look of the game, and the very simple, but addicting, gameplay. Feels very old school. Good stuff.

Still playing Infamous. Still enjoying it, although some of the missions can be pretty tough. I'm also addicted to finding blast shards.
I'm starting to get excited for Metroid: Other M. Little more than a month away(8/31). Please don't suck.
My son really wants Super Mario Galaxy 2, so I told him to save up his chore money to buy it. Last night I ordered it off of Amazon for 41.40. Not bad. I was looking at other Wii games and saw that they had new copies of Mad World for $6.90. I decided just to go ahead and buy it for that price. Anyone around here play the game? Sounds like fun.

I'm glad this topic exists.  Now I can detour people here on the next topic I make - just in case. :)

I have a horrible food sense... I enjoy plain.  Pepperoni and Cheese Pizza... fuck off, Pineapple!  You are not wanted!!!
I'm with you here. Either it's pepperoni pizza or GTFO. I've tried the whole pineapple/ham thing before, and it wasn't horrible. But why would you do that to a pizza when there's plenty of pepperoni to go around?

It's funny, when I was a kid my Gran would use an ice cream scoop on the mashed potatoes, and you would get little mounds of mashed potato. Now I do that myself, I can't enjoy them unless they are like ice cream scoops.

I have it the same way. To be honest I was not aware there was another way. I cannot imagine eating it when it is just mush. You need to get your fork and cut one of the scoops in half before eating them.
I've been to restaurants where they "ice-cream scoop" the potatoes and I find it odd. Somehow, it makes them taste not as good. My wife makes awesome smashed up potatoes, but I might have to pass on them if she busts out the ice cream scooper. Mental block.

After seeing Thoren's video, I initially thought Dice's "Cooking With Dog" video would have dog as the ingredient. 

But as much as we may go "eww" at some stuff, plenty of cultures have weird food.  Even in America.  Chitlins anyone?  It's basically deep fried pig rectum. 

At least the rectum isn't beating.

rectum?!


Damn near killed em'!

bye...

I read the first two Temeraire books, and just started the third one. They are nowhere near as good as I was hoping they would be. The author really isn't a very good writer, and has severe pacing issues. I keep reading them because I love the premise and hope at least one of the books lives up to it.
After I finish book three, I'll be reading some Moorcock. Now THAT should be good stuff.

The wife and I went on Saturday.
A review I wrote On FB:
This is probably the best movie I've seen in the past couple years. Super high production values, great acting all around, and a damn creative premise. Based on early reviews I was concerned that it might be a bit of a mind bender, but it really wasn't that hard to follow. I am actually in awe that Nolan was able to pull this off so well. I had a few minor nitpicks, but nothing that really takes anything away from the movie. A brilliant film that everyone must see.

InFamous is pretty good so far. I've done numerous side missions and have opened up a good portion of the first area. I can see this getting redundant, but for now I'm enjoying it.

I just finished it for the first time. I choose to be a good guy but I'm definitely replaying it as a villain, the game is so much fun.
How many hours did it take you to beat it? It seems to be moving along fairly quickly.
I also have chosen to be good, but the bad side was tempting.

Holy shit, that looks amazing. Pure adrenaline. I hadn't even heard of this game before, but those videos totally sold me.
2068  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Super RPGFan Game Journal IV - The New Warriors: The Revenge The Movie The Game on: July 09, 2010, 11:09:15 AM
I'm with you guys on the new moves introduced in GoW3. L1+O was a blast. I actually liked having to switch between the different weapons to fight certain enemies. Made it so I didn't just use the Exile Blades the whole time. I was actually surprised how well they implemented the items, too. They were used more than I was expecting.
It probably would be hard to go back and play 1 & 2 without the same benefits.
I don''t know how anyone can play these games on the higher difficulty settings, though. I get slaughtered.

Wish I could play Chains of Olympus, but I have yet to own a psp. between that, the Ys games, and numerous other good games, I am WAY tempted to get one.



2069  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Age 2 on: July 09, 2010, 10:57:42 AM
I, for one, wouldn't mind if they went the action/rpg route. I actually thought the first one was going to be an arpg until right before it came out. Plus, ME2 is a damn fine pedigree. I liked the first one enough, but it did have it's problems. WAY too many items for one. It just got so confusing, and resulted in gobs of time spent micro-managing everything. Unlike some people, I do not like this.
I have no problem with a Dragon Effect game.
2070  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: There is no free lemonade on: July 08, 2010, 09:46:24 AM
Wow. I actually agree with Thoren on this one. It seemed to me that no one was getting the real point of the article. That the kids are giving away for free what was paid for by someone else. Yes, we CAN assume this, as I imagine most lemonade stands involve kids raiding the cupboards for whatever is available to sell.
I also agree with Nuri on the definition of charity. IMO, charity involves giving to those who can't do it for themselves. Otherwise, it's simply a nice thing to do for another person. Heck, most people stopping to buy the lemonade probably aren't even thirsty. They are the ones being charitable by humoring the enterprising children.
Most kids setting up a lemonade stand are not doing it out of the kindness of their little hearts. They want to make some money. I know I did when I was a kid.
All that being said, it was a bit of a stretch for her to get to the point of the article from the initial story.
