Anyone watched Joss Whedon's new Dollhouse on Friday? What did you think? Great premise and more continuity than I expected. You know JW will put on a good show. So far, ED has been OK. I was not a big fan of Tru Calling, but Dollhouse should give her a chance to show more range. Seems like Sarah C...

Good Bye Nival?

What's all this about "it was their first try at Heroes"? No excuse -- they clearly did not understand what made the game popular. The botched beta made it clear that some poor design decisions had been made from the start. Had this been the first version of Heroes, the developer can be fo...

You might check around to see if there's a torrent with the game. I don't go around pirating software, but if I've already paid for a game I figure it's OK to download another copy.

Google 'Azure Bonds Torrent' and something may come up. I see one here called 'Lost Treasures' with it.

A lot of Astral Wizard old timers are in a Yahoo group called The Quill. Lately, it seems a lot are playing Kings Bounty so it's a good place to discuss the game. The 1C forums are also pretty good (at least compared to Ubi).

As I recall, there is one very nice weapon that is available only to Ninja Faeries. And because of combined attributes, you can have a character that is virtually unhittable. Thinking back, one of the good rotations was Elf Priest/Mage/Bishop and another was Dwarf Lord/Valkyrie. What you need to rea...

Rolling Stone review of No Country for Old Men: Misguided souls will tell you that No Country for Old Men is out for blood, focused on vengeance and unconcerned with the larger world outside a standard-issue suspense plot. Those people, of course, are deaf, dumb and blind to anything that isn't spel...

Babes, Sex & Video Games

A lot of what we are seeing here stems from the popular impression of gamers as 'nerds' who turn to fantasy girls because they can't get real women. Ironically, to the extent this is true, it is partly because women have bought into the notion that these so-called nerds are not manly enough to warra...

A cool thing about Wizardry is that there are some race/class combinations where you can change classes every few levels and just soar up in skills. I had several characters completely maxed out -- max level on everything.

Simmons is just so good at wordcraft. His writing has a flow to it that just carries you along. No doubt you have already partaken of the Hyperion series. But let me also recommend his early works Carrion Comfort and Summer of Night. I am rarely scared by stories in print, but these... well, see for...

Buffy was really, really good. Hard to say what was the best ever, though. Babylon V? Original Trek? M*A*S*H? Mystery Science Theater 3000? Twilight Zone? I Claudius? Monty Python? Each great in its own way. Terminator SCC has been far better than it might have been. I'm glad Fox kept it in the same...

Are you talking about the left arm? Cause the right arm looks just fine to me. However, if you are referring to the left arm, I totally see what you mean ;) I don't think it's photoshopped though. Her right arm is on the left side of the picture. As long as I'm here: http://thumbnails5.imagebam.com...
