Cool - downloading now.

Yeah - Mutant League Football (and a sequel, Mutant League Hockey).  In a similar (but non-RPG) vein, there was "Bill Laimbeer's Combat Basketball," and of course the seminal "Arch Rivals."

Apparently, there was a DOS version of Blood Bowl (which started as a board game) developed back in '95.  Now I have to find it. :D

Download Castle Crashers off of Live.  Best Hack & Slash RPG out there.

Geez - I knew I was forgetting something.  Check this out - heck, there's a demo available, so you can even try it for free!

Found out about this game today and watched a trailer.  Looks interesting, and maybe even within the realm of what we'd cover here... but I'm not sure.  Will have to do more research.


Turn-based (or realtime) football with dwarves and lizardmen?  Wild.

I loved MUA!  Four times so far!  (To be fair, I have played it on more than one system.)  The 360 even has cool exclusive characters. :)

Pickings are pretty slim, anyway.  A quick memory and web search brought up nothing else.

On my walk to work today, I started an audio book called The Brotherhood of the Seven Kings. It's one of those librivox.org books, so you know it's old.  I'd never heard of it before, but the blurb on its page intrigued me.  Not far enough in to say whether it's good or not, but it looks like probably a collection of short stories about the same characters, which I like, especially for "walking to work" listening.

Yeah, it was. As the biggest fan of the Colts you'll probably ever meet...

You might be surprised - my boss at work is almost literally a rabid fan.  She does the whole face-painting thing, goes to every home game, leaves work for Monday night games, etc.  Scary lady. :)

I was on a plane, and the satellite reception was lousy during the first quarter, then nonexistent for a while, so I just gave up.  Later, I decided to give it another shot, and found myself at the beginning of the fourth quarter with great reception for the rest of the game.  It was a great quarter!  That reminds me, though - I need to find that trailer for Land of the Lost that they played.  I only saw a few seconds of it.

Sorry - was referring to dalucifer0's post a few above yours regarding Expelled.  I should have used the magic "quote" button. 

Don't really know anything about Religious.  I've seen enough of Bill Maher aside from that movie to know that I agree with him on some things, don't agree with him on other things.  Mostly, I think he just feels more strongly about stuff than I do, which helps in his line of work. :)

I actually really like Blue Dragon so far.  I got it really cheap so I wasn't expecting much, but I really do like it.

Haha - I just started playing that yesterday, too.  I felt the same way.  Having fun so far, got it for cheap.  If you're not a manual reader, you might have missed this, but you can go up to just about everything and hit X to examine it for items or gold.  Apparently it's even a good thing if you find nothing, because there's a guy who will give you stuff later in the game based on how many nothings you've found.

I'm so excited I've wet myself three times this week.  The people at the hotel now hate me for life.

Yeah... not really.  Anyone know what time it actually starts?  I've gotten more and more curious as the week has gone by and ESPN has talked more and more about their pre- and post-game coverage, but not said a word about when the actual game itself is.

Doing that to him would ruin him.

I can't totally disagree with you, but to be honest, hardly anyone knows anything about Mickey these days except that he's the mascot for the company.  Kids haven't seen him in cartoons, they aren't looking to see him in cartoons... heck, many of them are unaware he was ever IN a cartoon!  And I'm not just saying this because I think it's true - Disney's actually done research in the past couple of years that's shown these things.

Watched Office Space again, still loved it.

And I haven't seen Ben Stein's movie, but I've read enough about it to know that it's pretty much on the same level as Michael Moore's films in terms of truthfulness and accuracy.  Which is to say: "not very high."  Part of me would love to have a giant flame war on the topic of whether schools should teach intelligent design or not, but let's not and say we did (especially not in this thread).  I will stick to saying this and no more: I believe in God and creation, I believe that creationism and evolution are not mutually exclusive beliefs, I believe that creationism is a religious belief, not a scientific one, and I believe that schools should not teach religion in their science classes.

That would be pretty epic...

Welcome to the site - you'll find that a number of the folks here are pretty big fans of well-done independent RPGs.

(You'll probably also find that although we are welcoming to new members, we don't have a bunch of "welcome the new guy" threads. :D )
2415  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Are you overwhelmed by your backlog? on: January 29, 2009, 10:22:14 AM
Definitely.  I got too many games after Christmas (yay for sales on used games!), and I think I've already left one or two in the dust, never to be completed (including Burnout Paradise, which people claimed was amazing). 

I'm fighting to get myself to complete Crisis Core and Hot Shots 2 on my PSP before I start on my next DS project for the site... which will probably be next week. 

I never finished Kingdom Hearts 2 or Jeanne D'Arc, even though I really wanted to, because I quite enjoyed them. 

My copy of Dragon Quest VIII (which I purchased just last month) is still unopened, and I didn't get more than a couple of hours into Last Remnant, which I also wanted to complete. 

And on top of those games, I'm working on a review of Marvel Ultimate Alliance on the PS3 (filling in the old gaps in coverage) and trying to play enough Rock Band 2 to not lose all of the paltry drumming skills I've managed to pick up.

Wow - this is a time-consuming hobby!
