I'd like to verbally congratulate myself for calling Mr. Steinman's Alien reference being within 15 minutes. I did also make a face with the "Most of my students haven't heard of it." part.
And I know we've belabored this quite a bit, but it is really funny to me that you love System Shock, but really hated KOTOR. Eh, to each their own.
(On a side note, read a review in PC Format giving AC3 a 2/5. It. Was. Beautiful.)
