That's a pretty solid set of guesses. :)  It was frustrating that things worked out quite how they did, but we didn't want his hard work to go unposted.

I have the first two, but I haven't wanted to read them until I get the third.  Then I promptly forgot to look for the third. :(  I have to remember to do that!  That is a pretty great title, I agree.

I'd say Warehouse 13 was axed too soon because that show should have had 10 seasons or so....actually I am probably fine with how long it lasted as I recognize that shows do have limited lives. I do however wish its last season was a full season so it could have had more time to develop the last plot line.

I truly hated that they put those two together in the end, though.  They were never supposed to be a will they won't they pairing.  They were best buddies who weren't attracted to each other, and that's what made them great.

I've been focusing my efforts on the PS4 version lately - I'm just two achievements away from platinum.  I need to finish 500 bounties (I'm at about 250 now) and get level 70 legendary items for all of my slots.  I'm really close to that.

That said, I did get in on the 2.3 patch preview.  It was fun, basically, but it wasn't clear what to do with the box after I had it.

I agree, that was a great show - absolutely worth watching if you haven't seen it, folks.  But actually watch it, rather than listening to it while looking at something else.  Lots of visual jokes, which is why Leslie Nielsen thought it did better in the movie theater than on TV.

I can't believe I forgot to post this earlier - an interview with the creators of Reaper that tells how the show would have ended if they'd gotten more time.  The actual ending is on page 2, but the first page has some good stuff as well, so that's what I linked to.

I've been plowing through Discworld books like there was no tomorrow, and it's odd, but I think I read my favorites first.  For those who don't know, the Discworld "series" is actually a bunch of smaller series just set in the same world.  Here's a graphic that explains it.

I read the Watch books first and loved them.  I then read the Rincewind books and thought they were generally good.  Now, I'm reading the Death books, and the first two really seem to have the same premise, but they're still good. Still, that grouping is short, and then I'll read the Witches books.  I've only read the first of them so far.

As a break, I started the first Dresden Files book, and I really like it so far.

If memory serves, it's from a late night show like Jimmy Fallon, and he's reading "shower thoughts" collected from the internet.

And we do it for free, just because we love it, so we really appreciate hearing nice things. :)

There are two series that I enjoyed by the same author, The Grimnoir Chronicles and Monster Hunter International.  In the Grimnoir books, the main character is a private detective, and although some people have superpowers, it's also got a ghosty-type element.  Monster Hunter is actiony, about people fighting werewolves and vampires, but not the Twilight kind.

There's also a series people just call the Pendergast books, by Preston & Child.  The first couple are comparatively weak, but they're not bad.  I'm told that it gets awesome starting with book 3.  I've only gotten as far as 3 so far, but I did think it was pretty good.

You can find out more about all of those pretty easily, so if any of them sound interesting, hit up the Google. :)

I get that way with gaming or with specific authors, definitely.  There are so many books on my list of stuff to read that I haven't yet gotten that way about books in general.  I'm always happy to throw book recommendations, so hit me up if you want some that might help you get back in the groove. :)

You might think a link from the Wall Street Journal is a pretty weird thing to post here, but I'm posting it for the random, amazing picture they included with the article.  At front left is RPGFan's own Derek Heemsbergen.  Next to him is Liz Maas.  And across from Derek, at front right, is Mike Salbato (whose name is on less things, but on whom we may depend more than anyone).


And it's also random because it's about Dragon Quest, and they're probably playing FF XIV.

Oh, yeah, I'm not saying he's wrong about the story.  He finds it fascinating that you're trying to convince people to ditch the cool, magic world and go back to crappy lives just so that you can go back to your better life, and he sees that doing so makes you at least kind of a jerk.

Somebody needs to buy his nephew a new hand held lol

Actually, I bought him a 2DS last Christmas. :)  He has brothers, so that 2DS and his old DS are his best shots at playing a game and not having to worry TOO much about losing his saves, although even there, there's no guarantee.  (His brothers also tend to break things, making the 2DS a better choice for him than a 3DS would have been.)  Somewhere, he got introduced to the Final Fantasy series, so I think he searched for what games in the series he could play on his handhelds.  And I'm glad he did - they're good stuff.

I have a nephew who's been into Zelda and Pokemon for as long as I can remember (he's 12), and this summer, he has jumped head first into the FFTA pool, and never wants to come out (he thinks FFTA was much better than 2, partly because he finds its story more compelling).  We'll see if he goes back and plays FFT, but I thought you guys would appreciate the fact that these games are definitely relevant to younger people than I might have expected.

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.
