Re: 0821: "Five-Minute Comics: Part 3"

This was easily the most hilarious comic I've seen in a long while. First one to get a full five minutes of laughter, as well. :mrgreen: I wonder if a sequel to The 119 Little Pigs would see magnetic isolation of antimatter used to construct shelters... and/or the Wolf constructing a particle accele...

Re: Most annoying level themes

no mention of stealth levels in shooter's yet? The worst offender IMO is Rainbow Six 3 for consoles where there's pretty much no stealth functionality at all, so 'stealth' consists of crouching, moving as slowly as you can through the level without letting anyone spot you and not being able to shoo...

Twilight Princess was pretty horrible about this- the Spinner dungeon comes to mind, for instance, as o...

Re: Nitpicky design failures in awesome games

Re: What is your favourite book?

Sadly, I have had a great deal of otherwise wonderful books ruined for me by high-school literary analysis. One of these books was one that I can see has been a favorite within this topic- 1984 by George Orwell. Fortunately, there are still many books/series that I have enjoyed over the years, my fa...
