Fuck me, those screens look nice...too nice.  "Need to buy a new computer to run it" nice. :P


That's what I'm scared of too.  Seems like Blizzard has always been kind on the hardware requirements front - I hope they will be this time as well.

I was just reading earlier today about something that people thought was an ARG, but turned out to be one of the biggest rickrolls ever.  We may be trying to decide soon whether getting "powned" or rickrolled is worse.

("Powned" isn't the normal spelling for that, is it?  I've always just seen pwned... which admittedly doesn't have six letters.)

Maybe its some cross over game, Diablo vs Starcraft vs Warcaft: Blizzard Bloodbath.


Starry World of Diablocraft?

Oh, MAN.  I (as you may guess) was a HUGE fan of Diablo II.  Played it off and on for like 2 years.  I have it installed on a 2 gig USB drive right now (with a no-cd patch, I could plug it into any PC and just play it).

I think at this point, they've borrowed enough elements of Diablo for Warcraft that even if they thought making a WoD game was a good idea, it'd probably be just too samey.

No matter what, you guys either just made or ruined my day, depending on whether this interpretation of events turns out to be correct or not. :)

My wife stumbled across about 50 issues of Analog and Isaac Asimov magazines at a thrift store recently, so I just started reading that.  I've also been sort of rereading Piers Anthony's Xanth series.  It's OK, but not my favorite.

Also read a book online recently called Timely Persuasion.  Great stuff.  I feel like I mentioned it somewhere on these forums already... but it wasn't in this thread, so now it is.

Wow - I wouldn't have thought those photos are of the same person.

Had been avoiding posting this... but people who know me in real life already know I'm here, so here's a picture I took of myself when I was in India this spring.  I'm kinda squinty because of the sun, but who cares?

Because I'm a huge nerd, I read The Rivan Codex by David Eddings.  It's mostly the background notes that he wrote up so he could write the Belgariad and Malloreon series. *sigh* I am a nerd.

I just read Anansi Boys too!  Currently reading Imajica by Clive Barker, but it's slow going.  I bought Stephen King's Lisey's Story today, so I'll probably read it soon too.

^ I don't know if you've read Barker's  "The Thief of Always" but if you didn't, you'd be doing yourself a favor by reading it.  It's not long but I enjoyed it immensely.


I have that book - was going to read it recently, but ended up reading something else instead.  I'll have to pick it up soon.

I've been reading a series called Circle of Magic by Tamora Pierce.  It's aimed at teens, but it's a really good series.  

I also read a book this weekend called Replay, by Ken Grimwood.  It's about a guy who dies of a heart attack while sitting at his desk, and then wakes up in his bed 25 years earlier, back in college, remembering everything from before.  Over the course of the book, he lives his life several times.  It's a great book, but it's from 1987, so it may be tough to find.

Is the motel scene the bit with Trashcan Man and the psychopath or where Lloyd and that other guy go round "pokerising" people?...


The one with Trashcan Man.  Still gives me chills - guess I know what I'm phobic about!  Tell you what - I did not feel too bad when that guy got

eaten by wolves.

Also read all of I Am Legend. Its a bit more realistic than the movie, as i thought it was a bit implausible that Will Smith's character was a police marshal and a brilliant scientist - Neville is just an amateur in the book.


I felt the same way - just read that book, and I thought "well, I guess they had to leave that out for time."  The Vincent Price movie was similar - he was a research doctor trying to cure the disease before everyone died.  The book is great.

Now i've started on Seventh Son, which is apparently "the most important american fantasy since the original Thomas Covenant trilogy". Um, shouldn't the most important american fantasy be Ursula le Guin, and shouldnt A Song of Ice and Fire be the most important one since then?


I couldn't say on Ursula le Guin, because although I have her books, I haven't read them yet, but Seventh Son was written before Song of Ice and Fire, so it's still fair to say that.  I love the Alvin Maker series (of which Seventh Son is the first book) - easily one of my top five fantasy series.

Since I started reading "The Stand" on Friday, I've somehow managed to get about 850 pages of it read. It's good, but it would be better if it was half as long. Only 600 pages to go..............


Is it the original version, or the longer "director's cut" version?  Because I've read both, and I think I prefer the original.  There's a scene in a motel with a pistol in the longer version that still gives me the jibblies when I think about it.

I just finished I Am Legend.  Been wanting to read it for years, and got it as a Christmas present.  Good stuff.  Now I'm reading Peter and the Starcatchers, which I've also wanted to read for years because I love Dave Barry's stuff.

I just finished Jonathon Strange & Mr. Norrell - it was pretty good stuff.  Sort of historical fiction/fantasy.

Then, I read I Am Legend.  I can see why they've made three movies of that story - it's good stuff.

Not a movie, but I watched season 1 of Amazing Stories on DVD recently - it was interesting.  Some episodes were pretty decent, but I may have been giving those ones some nostalgia credit.  Most of them weren't very good.  It was a pretty big disappointment for me, because I thought "sweet!  I loved that show" when I saw the DVDs.

Now if they'd only release Misfits of Science...
