I started Goodkind's "Wizards First Rule". I have a LOT of reading ahead of me:p

Enjoy it; the first one is the good one. :P

As for me, I'm reading "The Stand" by some hack.  I thought I had read this before, but if I have I've forgotten it completely.

Yeah, I hear the series just devolves into S&M after not too long.  First book's still the only one I've read.

And I <3 The Stand.  I prefer the original version to the extended version, though.  There's one extra scene that kind of scarred me for life...

I'm a pie man.  Love lots of kinds.  I even have pie for my birthday, rather than cake.

Oh, and I'm more a fan of the thick crust myself, Dincrest... but I do love bread.

Man, if I ever had to eat low carb, I think it'd kill me.

Doesn't this thread belong in the music forum?  I mean, Cake is one of the coolest bands out there. 


I saw this thread first and honestly hoped that's what it was about.

Oh, and cheesecake is the best kind of cake.  Unless you get it from Junior's in NYC, where sometimes you get both kinds in the same dessert. :D

Welcome to the fold, Cliocat. :)  I don't think you'll find any shortage of love for FF7 around here, even if it's not all the way at the top of everyone's list.  There are plenty of us grownups here at The Fan (although I don't think anyone actually calls it that), although I must in all fairness admit that I don't see retirement anywhere in my near future. :D

Edit-Random forum note, I don't know if there's anything that can be done about them, but spoiler tags are absolutely hideous in firefox.

Not to threadjack, but seconded.

Oldboy seems to be a love it or hate it kind of show, from what I've read.  People don't seem to say "eh, it was OK."

Oh, forgot to say I watched Yes Man on the plane this weekend.  It wasn't the worst thing I've ever watched, but I did think he bought into the saying yes to everything covenant junk way too easily.  Maybe I'm underestimating the power of peer pressure, but I'm thinking many folks would have said yes in the meeting in front of everyone, then not actually done anything.

Of course, that'd make a pretty crappy movie: "No Man Who Buckled for Five Seconds in Front of a Huge Crowd of Strangers." :)

I'm also on 360 and haven't run into any bugs in Fallout 3.
2273  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Puzzle Quest: Galactrix Impressions on: April 08, 2009, 01:40:10 AM
Yep, tried it out and had the exact same feeling.  Not a horrible game or anything, just boring.  And for some reason, I can't get my brain to accommodate the way the pieces slide in.  I understand how it works, but can't think through to really predict what's going to happen when I slide the pieces.
2274  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: New Red Dwarf this weekend! :D on: April 07, 2009, 03:12:38 AM
Yes and no.  Yes because it'll be cool to have new stuff from the series, no because I won't get to watch it.  Maybe I'll be able to download it or stream it from someplace afterwards, though.  In which case, yes again. :D
2275  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The most hours you've logged into a game? on: April 07, 2009, 01:55:03 AM
You guys are definitely making me feel better about having maxed out the clock in Pokemon Red at 256 hours. :D  Like so many others here, I've put hundreds more hours into the series in other iterations, and I'm playing Platinum right now, so that clock's just gonna keep on ticking. 

Other than that, Diablo 2 is definitely the game I've put the most time into - I played it off and on for about 5 years.  No counter in there, though.

Oh - I bet I've put a few hundred hours into Kingdom Hearts games, mostly in 1 and 2 (not CoM).  Sadly, a friend borrowed my PS2 and lost the memory card where I was playing 2, so I had to start over. :(

In the case of Fallout 3, the only DLC I plan to get is the thing that lets you continue after the ending.  The other stuff looks like it's good, but I think the game itself has enough content to keep me busy for a long, long time.  I've been playing for a few weekends now as a good guy and haven't really even scratched the surface.
2277  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: April 07, 2009, 01:15:00 AM
Bolt - I actually kinda liked this. Disney CG has improved tremendously. Plus, none of the characters were stupidly annoying, like in most movies aimed at children. There was even a few unexpectedly "sweet" moments.

I'm glad you liked it.  I've mentioned before that the voice of the hamster was done by a very good friend of mine, so although I liked it quite a bit, I think I was kind of biased.  I wondered what people without that bias thought of it. :)
2278  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Diablo 3? on: April 03, 2009, 10:54:13 AM
Nope - always saw people selling stuff, but never bought anything myself.  Of course, I was never involved in online play, and I'm pretty sure that made a difference in how I played.
2279  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Female RPG Fans....... on: April 01, 2009, 07:55:19 AM
Don't think I've bragged in this thread yet, so now I will. ;)  I married a girl who likes games.  I don't know if I'd call her a "gamer" or not, but she has bought me two consoles thus far, and she's the one who hunted down a website that still had Wiis for preorder, which got us one on release day.  She's got a PSP and is on her second (or is it third) DS... so she definitely plays games.  It's just a sort of side hobby for her, though, whereas it's my main hobby (yay for time sitting on planes!).

Dincrest - awesome songs X 2.  I thought that same blog posted the song "Marvin, I love you," but a quick search returned too many results to bother looking through.  (Marvin, of course, being the robot from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.)

And yeah, Shirley Manson. :) Then or now, awesome.
