I'm having tons of fun with this game.  I'm onto the third island playing good - will go back and play evil when I'm done, which I don't do that often.  One of the few gripes I have is that while you can easily get bad points while trying to be a good guy (tie them down, then kill them anyway), it doesn't seem like you can accidentally get good points.  Well, maybe that's just life, so I shouldn't complain. ;)

I recommended this somewhere else, I think, but as a fantasy reader, I have really enjoyed Ashok Banker's Ramayana series.  Plus, if you work with/know anyone from India, it seems to earn major brownie points with them that you've read it. :)

Just found out that there's a site called Good Old Games where you can buy these and other old games, completely legally, but individually.  Fallout 1 and 2 are both $6, I believe.

I finally beat Diablo 2 (and the expansion)! About 10 years too late.

It's never too late - now it's time to beat it again, with a different character. :D

FInished the 3D picross game on DS.  Not even sure what its name is at the moment.  It's from Japan...

Finished the Ramayana last night at about 1:30.  Great stuff.  The same author (Ashok Banker) is tackling the Mahabharata next, but he says he's up to 18 volumes of 800 pages, and it sounds like he's not done yet.  That's a lot of reading, even for someone who loves books.

Sorry, Monkey - wrong Syracuse.  You mean the one in NY, I meant the one in Utah. :)

Brain tumors, stroke, and surgery after surgery? Damn, she's got a healing factor that puts Wolverine to shame. Thank god she doesn't have claws protruding from her knuckles.

Indeed - can you imagine toddler Wolverine?  I think anyone who's ever seen a toddler knows that's a recipe for a bad time.

Guess it depends on what you loved about Fallout.  The combat wasn't my favorite part, so Fallout Tactics isn't that fun to me.

Here's the really important question: 16 is "legal"?  Not here in the US.

Seriously, though - that is insane.  A 16-year-old baby.  Poor parents.

i know someone who lives in utah and and often says that the salt lake reeks.

Depending on where you live, that's totally true.  It's a "dead lake," which means that water flows in, but it doesn't flow out, and it's salt water (hence the name).  Back in the late 1800s, if not later, it was so salty that you couldn't sink in it!  That's not true now, but it's still salty enough that they farm brine shrimp there.

So... if you live in some places, the wind blows in off the lake, especially in the evenings, and you get icky salt water brine shrimp farm smell.  It's icky.  I had some friends in Syracuse, and it smells like that there.

And since with all of these posts, I haven't actually posted any pics, here's one of my cat in a tree.  She's as close as I have to a kid:

And I know some frown on this kind of thing, but I thought this was a very nice pic of the Empire State Building at night:

I've gone in once or maybe twice, and never really intend to see Home again.  Should just uninstall the freaking thing.

Finally made it to the last book in the Ramayana (well, the version I have, anyway).  About 700 pages to go, but there's already been a "holy crap" moment or two.  Good stuff.  Fantasy readers might want to check it out - look for the books by Ashok Banker, because there have probably been hundreds of versions written over the years.

Lake Erie is green too. i haven't gone in it since i was like 15 and i'm 29 now. someone would have to like pay me to go in. but sometimes when i'm jet ski'ing i wipe and fall in >_<

EEEEWWWWWW - there's a place like that in Utah.  (Willard Bay?)  Can't figure out why people still go there all the time anyway.

And nice glasses, Tomara - my last pair were almost exactly like them. :)

In case anyone out there hasn't played the original Fallout games, I thought I'd pass on the word that I saw a bundle at Target yesterday for $20 that contained Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics.  Great deal on some awesome games, and I think any PC in the country could run them these days.  I bet my phone could even run them... if the games were compatible with windows mobile.

Sweeeeet.  There's been lots of good news on this front lately.
