The Last Exorcism... I know there's a sequel...

That's like the Final Fantasy of movie titles.

Can't post pics, NSFW as HELL

Haha - that is a crazy park.

And you know what they say-- big feet, big... love for RPGs.

We actually talked about that on an episode that I was on!  Can't remember if it was Rhythm or Random Encounter.  But at the time, I thought it was "big feet, big... shoes."

I read Night Watch this week, and I really liked it.  It was originally written in Russian, and as someone who hasn't had a lot of actual exposure to Russia, I found the cultural differences very interesting aside from the fact that the book's well written.  Definitely gonna grab the next one in the series when I get a chance.

from what I've seen its pretty much borderlands with more players and less stuff to do.

To me, it doesn't feel much like Borderlands at all.   It lacks any of that goofiness that pervades that series.

Don't imagine you guys read my review (why would you, since you already have the game?), so I thought I should tell you that I gave you a shout out. :)

I wish I had it on PS4.  I have it on PS3, though, and I totally agree about the controls.

Yep, I read the first one and decided that was plenty.  I will say, though, that I also like the ability to change font size on kindle/ebook apps.  Makes it easier to read in crappy light or when I want to take off my glasses for a bit.  (Not reading glasses - I-can't-see-without-them glasses.)

I got to read a bunch recently, which was pretty nice!  I read Neil Gaiman's The Ocean at the End of the Lane, which was very Neil Gaiman-y, and I enjoyed it a lot.  Short fast read.

I've read the first couple of books in Preston & Child's Pendergast series at the recommendation of some friends, and they've been good enough that I'm reading the third one now.

I read The Crimson Campaign - book 2 of the Powder Mage trilogy - and it was also good.  I'm nervous that he's headed into some tropey traps in book 3, but we'll see what happens.  As for book 2 itself, I wish he'd done a better job of reminding me who the returning characters were, but that's my only complaint.

The first book in Brandon Sanderson's giant fantasy epic series is free on Kindle now/today/for some length of time. If you have a Kindle or anything with a Kindle app and like fantasy, grab this while it's free! It's great, and it's a HUGE book. One where you'll appreciate carrying around the digital version instead of the physical one.

Apparently, sled dogs are trained to do that - races would be pretty slow if they had to stop all the time for potty breaks!  Also, it apparently leaves the driver's outfit kind of gross by the end of the day. :D

That reminds me of a video I've got to post... even though it's not a gaming thing.

It's the Oo De Lally song from Disney's Robin Hood cartoon, in 16 languages.

Hey - both of you, drop it.

Re: searching.  So true.  I hate all the garbage they put under "RPGs."

I'm in Mountain.  And it definitely wasn't me with 22 plats.  I think I have one. :D

I love Terry Gilliam movies - I have no idea why I've never seen Fisher King.  I think I'm scared of it.

Here's a brief interview with Terry Gilliam about working with Robin Williams on that movie, from just after Robin died.
http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-28742837

And here's an article that was likely written just before Robin died, talking about a particularly hard scene.
http://www.vulture.com/2014/08/terry-gilliam-robin-williams-fisher-king-memory.html

And not that I want to turn this from a movie thread into a Robin Williams thread, but I have to mention one more thing.  When hunting down the second article today, I came across a list of tributes to Robin Williams from the day after he died, by other celebs who knew him.  A couple of them mention where they knew him from, but they're all "wow, this is so sad, he was amazing," except for freaking Chevy Chase, who found a way to make it about himself.  "Robin and I were great friends, suffering from the same little-known disease: depression. I never could have expected this ending to his life, and to ours with him. God bless him and God bless us all for his life! I cannot believe this. I am overwhelmed with grief. What a wonderful man/boy and what a tremendous talent in the most important art of any time comedy! I loved him."  I don't know, maybe I'm being too harsh - Chevy just bugs me.
