So... I don't know how many folks here are excited about Disney's new movie, Bolt, but I am.  It opens this week, and a good friend of mine is one of the stars - his name's Mark Walton, and he plays the hamster, Rhino.  I'm very excited for him - it's like his big break in voice acting.  His usual job is as a storyboard guy (I can never remember his actual title).  OK - I'll admit it, I'm jealous, too.  What cartoon watcher hasn't thought that being in voice-over work would be cool?  But still - more excited for a friend than jealous.

Anyway, all of the reviews so far are good.  Most include some comment that boils down to "it's not as good as the great stuff Pixar has put out, but it's wroth watching - way better than the other movies Disney's been making for a long time."  Most also include a comment about my friend and that he does a great job, which is very cool.

What I really came to say was: if you're thinking about going to see it, please do.  The more buzz there is around my friend's character, the more likely he is to get a spinoff or more roles or something.

I've actually written a couple of FAQs.  One for a game I liked and one for a game I hated and couldn't play through without a map.  They do take a long time, and with a great resource out there like GameFAQs, I don't see any reason for us to try to compete with them.  As has been said, we keep our focus tight so that we can keep our quality to the maximum.

After a friend lost my PS2 memory card, I bought a new one this week and started over in Kingdom Hearts 2 - the only game I really cared about on the memory card.  Almost done with Roxas!

(I also a wireless guitar with a removable neck that I really didn't need.  But it's wireless!  And the neck comes off for easier storage!  And it was cheap, but still in excellent condition!  I couldn't resist.)

Finished making my first million in Fable 2 today.  Have been behaving myself, and am now trying to get corrupt enough to open a demon door before I hit the Crucible.  There's nothing left to buy, so I just went around raising the rent and prices on everyone to be a jerk.

I'm listening to a free audio book that I got from librivox.org right now - it's an old sci-fi book called The Time Traders, by Andre Norton.  I think I've pimped librivox here before, so I won't again.

I'm watching BBC America, and I have Fox News, ABC News, and CNN all up on my laptop.  It's interesting to see how different the numbers are between them.  Right now:

BBC says 49 McCain, 103 Obama
ABC says 49 McCain, 102 Obama
CNN says 34 McCain, 81 Obama
Fox says 54 McCain, 103 Obama

Until just now, Fox was way off from everyone else.  Now they're a lot closer.  CNN seems to be staying very cautious.

They are both great systems, you really can't go wrong. Just get both eventually :)

Just what I always end up saying.  Can't go wrong either way.  Try to get both if that is an option.

Gotta ask the question... so what do you feel IS the basis for an RPG?

Played WAY too much Fable 2 this weekend.  Extremely addictive game.  My wife talked me into buying lots of cheaper stalls and houses rather than just saving up for the big things, and I think it's paying off big time.  With the profits, I was able to buy some bigger things pretty quickly.  Also, since I can only play on the weekends, any money I don't invest into a business before I quit on Sunday essentially goes to waste until the next week.

My wife's also concerned about my hero getting too chunky, so the poor girl's on an all celery and tofu diet now.  Glad I bought those veggie stands now so I can save on fancy stuff.

And even though I married my in-game spouse just to get a demon door to open, I couldn't sacrifice him, either.  No kids yet.

Tooks, you're probably aware of this website, but it's an excellent comprehensive site for gamebook series like CYOA, Time Machine, Fighting Fantasy, and more.  http://gamebooks.org/

CYOA's I felt were dependent upon the author.  Some authors wrote amazing stuff and others not so well.

Cool - didn't know about that site.  Definitely would agree about the author by author thing, too.  Some are better... some are worse.

The arcade at my school (yes, my college has an arcade!) has both of these games. Nobody really plays them, since everyone usually crowds around the Marvel vs Capcom 2 and Street Fighter 3rd Strike machines, but it's still fantastic to see co-op gems like X-men and The Simpsons occupying the space. I can't wait to see a few people playing them so I can hop in for a bit in-between classes.

You lucky, lucky something-or-other.  I love that X-Men game too.  And the six-player version is the only real one.  The four-player always made me feel disappointed, knowing what I was missing.

I'd say my all time favorite book series is Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy...

I was also a massive Choose Your Own Adventure fan growing up...

I'm sure I'll think of more, but these are definitely two series I love a ton.  I believe I have mp3s of every episode of the radio show of HHGTG, so...

I have over 3,000 books now (thanks in big part to my wife), and since both my wife and I loved the CYOA books, we're really making an effort to get a complete collection.  My three favorites were definitely The Cave of Time (book 1), Deadwood, and... one where there were aliens and you were trying to get to an ending where you were in a utopian society, except that there was no path that lead to that ending.  I thought that was brilliant!

That shirt is a giant bag full of awesomeness.

Helping Hand here.  Just what I would have expected if I'd known the possibilities ahead of time.  I don't play online much, but that's definitely how I like to play when I do.
2415  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Book Thread Continued on: October 27, 2008, 08:49:41 PM
Yeah, he does.  He writes two over the course of the book that he didn't write in real life, and he makes a promise to another character to write one of the Henry plays.
