When I saw how much others liked Morrowind, I tried SO HARD to like it, but never managed.  Played for hours and never got into it.

...I tell you, 90% of the time any movie based on a book, the book is better...

I may have said this here before, but my rule of thumb is always that if the book comes first, the book's better.  If the movie comes first, the movie's better.  There are a very few exceptions, but they're few and far between.  (One that's NOT an exception, even though it might seem to be, is The Princess Bride.  As great as the movie is, the book's even better, and the book came first.)

Of course, if someone is ignoring you... they wouldn't see your post here, right?

...promptly died in the TUTORIAL mission of Hard mode...

You could always tell yourself that it's supposed to be like Demon's Souls.  You know, where you HAVE to die in that mission. :)

Book of Eli really looks to me like "Fallout: The Movie." Is that at all what it's like?

A friend of mine recently bought a Kindle - she showed it to me this week.  It's pretty sexy, but didn't convince me.

Grim - deciding which games to include in our awards is always a tough call.  This is especially true for platforms which not all of us have.  Given the time constraints of this being a volunteer job, though, we've had to accept that we're going to have to trust each other in areas where we don't specialize.

Fortunately, I think we've got a great staff, and I totally trust any of them.  :)

Really?  I've felt like this site sees a LOT less drama than I've run into elsewhere.  I figured you just had to be pretty far out there for people here to call you on your crap.  That's not directed at you, Eric - but I'm sure you know by now that generally, when you feel strongly about something, there are going to be a number of people here who disagree with you, and disagree very strongly.

I know I'm technically a "critic," but I'm pretty staunchly in the "Dragon Age is great" camp. The combat is fine, but I really like the talky parts, which is good because that's Bioware's strength.

Seriously, I think that bad things should be done to anyone who releases a game on any platform - especially an RPG - without SOME kind of quick save feature.  I do not like it when my games hold me hostage. (As I said elsewhere about DQ8.)  I'm totally fine with it being a save file along the lines of "as soon as you load it, it's deleted," which stops me from reloading the same save over and over, but I need to be able to turn the console off and leave when I need to, not when the game decides it'll let me.

Rise from your grave!

Had to come back and say that some of your songs have come up in my random playlist, Pat, and you did a nice job on them!  I'm not really into piano music, so I can't think of one where I said "ooh, that one's amazing," but there also hasn't been one yet where I thought "ooh, that's not very good.  I'm skipping this one," and that's saying something. :D

Seriously, I was THIS close to thinking you guys were just screwing with us for a second.  Sunshine, Moon... 

"Ooh, I like Tree too.  Grass was OK, but a little slow to develop."

"No way - how can you like Tree, but say Grass was slow?!"

Next time, check runpee.com before the movie.  Or if you see a lot of movies, you might think it's worth $2 for the iPhone app. :D

I've never yet played a survival horror game and liked it, regardless of control scheme, including RE1. :)  (Just had to be the jerk who said "everything sucks" for once.)
1934  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / The Big Lebowski on: January 08, 2010, 10:52:36 PM
OK, I admit I've only seen The Big Lebowski once, and I don't love it like some do, but I still thought this was pretty cool when someone linked me to it today: it's the script of The Big Lebowski as if it were written by William Shakespeare.  I've read through the first few scenes, and the author did some funny, clever stuff.

I'm a physical book guy as well.  My wife and I are approaching 3400 books, and I just like the way a book feels in your hand, as well as the ease of flipping back to something you want to read again, and other things.  That said, I've been walking more in the last few years, and I've gained a great appreciation for audio books during the winter and on windy/rainy days.

I've read Project Gutenberg books on my PC and on my old smart phone, and neither way bowled me over, although I recognize that they're not really geared for it the way a Kindle or other dedicated hardware would be.


Oh - that reminds me, I've read a few more recent books on my PC that I'd actually recommend as entertaining reads.  Here are a pair of freebies, and I still feel like I'm forgetting one:

Timely Persuasion - it's a little bit Back to the Future, a little bit Quantum Leap, a little bit The Butterfly Effect... good stuff.  The stuff that'd be in the dust jacket is here:
http://timelypersuasion.com/Story.html

The book is here:

Flyboy Action Figure Comes With Gasmask - "Ryan, a shy, caffeine-addicted university student, can turn into a fly. Cassandra, a waitress at a greasy spoon, can make things disappear. They were made for each other... and to battle the forces of evil! Inspired by Sailor Moon, Flyboy and Ms. Place take on the villains who inhabit their world: cigarette barons, redneck tabloid newspapers, and the patriarchy."
