2491  The Rest / General Discussions / This is the saddest thing I've heard of in quite some time. on: June 21, 2008, 10:57:59 AM
I saw a little blurb about this on the news last night.  Gotta agree - this is made up of about 8000 kinds of wrongness.
2492  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Molly the Were-Zompire Puzzle/RPG - Just a game I'm working on: June 20, 2008, 08:01:42 PM
I like text stuff, but mostly just as a quick thing.  I don't tend to play them for long periods.  However, there is definitely still a text-based gaming community alive and well.
2493  Media / The Soundroom / Song of the Moment: 15th Anniversary Edition on: June 18, 2008, 09:34:20 AM
I have it... but I mostly use it to listen to stand up comedy and crap like that.

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).
2495  Media / Single-Player RPGs / The Legend of Dragoon on: June 16, 2008, 10:35:26 AM
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.
2496  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Fallout games coming to GameTap on: June 13, 2008, 12:23:17 PM
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.
2497  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / ...They're remaking "The Prisoner"? on: June 13, 2008, 12:21:43 PM
I'd watch it for Christopher Eccleston - after Dr. Who and Heroes, I'm a fan of his.
2498  Media / The Soundroom / Garth Brooks and The Beatles are technophobes. on: June 13, 2008, 12:20:25 PM
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.
2499  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.
2500  The Rest / General Discussions / The Slow Death of the Arcade on: June 11, 2008, 09:10:04 AM
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.
2501  Media / The Soundroom / Garth Brooks and The Beatles are technophobes. on: June 11, 2008, 08:51:47 AM
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.
2502  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.
2503  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.
2504  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.
2505  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
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.
