I appreciate that the key stats panel is back.  I'm generally the one who approves new forum members, and I often like to check on them after a day or so to make sure they're not spamming it up. (Which would mean I done goofed.)

Like I see that this latest person included Paper Mario: TTYD on their top 10 list, so they're obviously cool. ;)

My hope is that it'll be looked at historically like the sequel someone wrote to Gone With The Wind, which has been largely forgotten.

If you do want to do stuff online, we had pretty good luck with Roll20.  The system worked fine for our group, it was our calendars that didn't.

I think reception was mixed on Steelheart, but I enjoyed it and the sequel.

I'm having the same problem you had with Outcast, in the second book of the Bartimaeus trilogy.  The main character is really hard to root for, although in this case I believe that it's intentional.

I was in a campaign for a while with RPGFan's own Kyle as the DM, and it was great... but we played online, and scheduling fell apart, and we only did like four sessions, and I'm still kind of bummed about that almost a year later. :(

Way too young.  Sorry to hear we've lost someone who contributed so much to the hobby we all love.

Depends on why you play games.  I play Fallout more for the story and the world than I do for the combat and the tactics of figuring out what I can cart around with me.

We actually did April Fools a while back, and people seemed to really not like it. Which made me sad, because I thought we wrote some great stuff. :(

I really wish I had the time to be on the FFT show. So I could tell you all why War of the Lions is the best English localization ever.

I might second that.  Here's my review, in which I talk about my experience with the original and the PSP localization.

Reaper.... brisco county junior.

I think you may be the only person I know other than me who even knows those shows existed.  I definitely agree in the case of Reaper.  Can't remember well enough where Brisco left off to say if it got canceled too early.  If you like it, though, you might try to find Jack of All Trades, which also starred Bruce Campbell.  It's a piratey show, but it's got some of that same feel.  It didn't last long either, but hey, it's something. :)

Yeah, best to take a break at the point you've reached.

If you'd like something light, might I recommend Good Omens?  I just read it again, and it's great, Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman.  In fact, I read a bunch of Discworld books recently, and they live up to their reputation.  I think I remember that you live in Utah like me - Good Omens is available from my local library in eBook form, so it might be available at yours, too.  Discworld, not so much, although they have a bunch physically.

At least in Nic Cage's case, I don't know that he can afford to pass on any part he's offered.  I remember him having financial troubles.

As far as I know, we did not.  We have some news posts on it, but nobody ever got the chance to actually review it.  We have an existing thread about the game, so I'll link you to that and lock this. :)

Those were my thoughts when I saw it as well. :)

I saw Tusk tonight.  It was terrible.  Not funny enough to be even considered a dark comedy, not actually scary.  Really disappointing, stupid ending.

Sanderson's Warbreaker is good, and you can download it free from his website, which is even better.

David Eddings has a book called The Redemption of Althalus that I like.  As is always the case with Eddings, though, if you've read one of his things, you've basically read them all.  I just happen to like his stuff, even though it is repetitive.
