I love laser tag!  I've even gone with the folks from work a time or two.  Best "team building exercise" I've ever done, and no one came away with welts (which I think of as an advantage over paintball).

Count me among those who didn't care for it.  I think it was the card thing that really annoyed me... but it's been too long for me to be sure.

Dang... I've never gotten the chance to play 2 or Tactics, and have always wanted to (I love Fallout a ton).  Gotta check out their site and see what it costs to sign up, as this might be the thing that makes me do so.

I'd watch it for Christopher Eccleston - after Dr. Who and Heroes, I'm a fan of his.

Quote from: "Prime Mover"
the first time, I always listen to an album straight through.


Glad to know I'm not the only one.  I do the same thing with video games - the very first time I load one up, I watch all of the pre-game things (you know, the company logos and other start menu lead-in stuff).  

I may never listen to that CD start-to-finish again, but I somehow feel I owe it to the artist to do it once.
2301  Media / Brush and Quill / Book Thread Continued on: June 11, 2008, 09:15:42 AM
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.

I go to Dave & Busters fairly often, and they're always busy.  They seem to have a pretty successful model - restaurant + bar + arcade.  They focus mostly on games you couldn't have at home, like big two-player light-gun games, racing games with like 8 cars, stuff where you earn tickets...  As has been said, it's a different model, and that's probably what it'll take.

Gotta agree with D-Rider.  Flow is all well and good, but many folks are just not that into their music.  They like a song, they want that song.  I love music, as I think a lot of folks here do, and I can think of a few albums off the top of my head with a flow I wouldn't want to break, but it's pretty rare.
2304  The Rest / General Discussions / RPGFan Gaming Journal: The Road to Infinity on: June 11, 2008, 08:45:49 AM
When I'm home, been doing the Wii Fit.  Picked up Rock Band again, but didn't really stick with it.  This weekend, I bought the House of the Dead two-fer on the Wii, but didn't get a chance to play yet.  Also got a game for the PSP called Alien Syndrome.  Will probably post a review to the site when I'm done.
2305  The Rest / General Discussions / RPGFan Community Photo Thread: 2007 Edition on: June 08, 2008, 04:18:10 PM
Wow - I wouldn't have thought those photos are of the same person.
2306  The Rest / General Discussions / Your Bookmarks on: June 06, 2008, 07:12:21 PM
Wow - only one fellow farker so far.  I have literally hundreds of bookmarks... but here are a few choice selections that I go to often:

http://www.rpgfan.com - duh.
http://www.fark.com - links upon links upon links
http://www.worth1000.com - a photoshop contest every day
http://www.plime.com - I love their upvote and downvote system (they probably aren't the only ones who have something like that - I just love theirs).  There have been a bunch of times here on the Fan that I've wanted to upvote someone's comment (and sure, a few times where I wanted to downvote one)
http://www.the-editing-room.com/ - "abridged" scripts to movies.  Usually way funnier than the original.


http://reader.timelypersuasion.com/Introduction.html - I don't go to this site every day, because it's a book, and I finished reading it last weekend.  It's a free book, available online, and I've recommended it on another site already, but since I haven't brought it up here, it's worth mentioning again.  Somewhere on the book's site, it's described as Back to the Future meets Quantum Leap in Rock and Roll Heaven, and that's pretty fair.  You can read it free online or buy a downloadable copy or even a physical copy if you love it.  I really thought it was a great book.
2307  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Jeanne D'Arc on: June 06, 2008, 02:03:03 PM
In terms of great PSP games, here's what I've played and loved.  I'll put an asterisk next to RPGs.

God of War
FFT *
Jeanne d'Arc *
Syphon Filter (both of them, although I prefer the first)
Disgaea *
Burnout Legends
Patapon (more OK than "loved" - sort of RPG - see my review)
X-Men Legends II *
Puzzle Quest (sort of RPG)
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance *
Killzone (more OK than "loved")
Pursuit Force (second one's better than the first)
I love the Katamari games, although I haven't played it on PSP
Dungeon Siege is OK
Justice League Heroes is pretty good
I thought both of the Untold Legends games were OK, too.

Anyway, that's a bunch, and I may have missed one or two.
2308  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Yahtzee does Oblivion on: June 05, 2008, 07:49:39 AM
Yahtzee's establishing a dangerous precedent here - two RPGs in a row.  This week, he reviewed Oblivion.  A strange choice, seeing how long it's been out, but who cares - it's funny stuff. :)

Quote from: "Dincrest"
It's like how legendary adult heroes seal the supreme evil demonic overlord away and he comes back after 1000 years more pissed off than ever and a bunch of children have to defeat it.



HAHAHAHAHA!  Nicely done. :)

Quote from: "Losfer"
De Rais' is somewhat off...


Yeah... I'm actually kind of glad I don't know the true history better than I do.  Makes it easier to think of them as just fictional people not really based on anyone.
