Dragon Age.


I only played like 3 hours this weekend and it was still very awesome.

I keep hearing that the 360 version really isn't as good as the PC one. I can't believe they don't have a Tab key function and they can't zoom out. I can only assume that the people who bought it on the Xbox are pissed.

The game runs really nicely on my PC.

Dragon Age

Dragon Age is great and it works well on my crappy computer.

This is one of those times where I am glad that PC games are getting dumbed down for the Xbox 360 and PS3.

The story is pretty awesome and it's fun to play an RPG where a rogue can kick ass.

Normally I just play a general pick locks, spot traps and backstab type of character. This is fun and all but I hated it when my character would be weak as hell when fighting other people.

This game allows you to be a rogue that can kick a ton of ass.

Fedor knocks the crap out of Rogers

I got out my .25 cent amplified TV antennae out to watch this fight. I got the antenna at a garage sale. It works really well with ABC and NBC. Crystal Clear. I was very happy and I am glad I spent the quarter. This is the first time I watched TV on in awhile.

Rogers cut open Fedor's nose with a jab (which was pretty impressive) but couldn't do much else. A rematch? Roger's didn't earn it.

Fedor is a machine. I can't wait to see his next match.

This is what 8th graders in the US used to know...

This game has gotten some very good press from RockPaperShotgun and Penny Arcade.

However most of the major "gaming news" places have not mentioned it much.

Why the hate towards a single player game?

I LIKE single player games. Reviewers like Yahtzee like single player games.

Why so much buzz about multi-player crap?

There are some good multiplayer games out there but honestly the single player experience is NOT DEAD.

And don't get me started about the whole "Needing Internet Access to Install a Single Player Game" thing. (And not have any internet requirements on the box.)

This used to be a sidekick.

Great Show.

The whole dumpster diver part really hits close to home.

A nice moment.

Perhaps this was not as cool as people would lead us to believe but it was something.,0

Let's try to remember when Westernized culture meant BOOKS. East Germans lined up to buy BOOKS!

Let's not let the corporate culture and political bullshit that is happening in the West make us think that it's too late for good things to happen.

Help other people throw off ignorance rather than revel in it like the vast majority of the population of the US. And YES that includes most of the ignorant slobs who voted for Obama or McCain.

There is something better to strive for. People CAN be better than they are in every way. Don't listen to the defeatists who claim that we have already sunken too far.

Get out there. Do something in the community. Make something creative that other people will see. Help someone. Do something to point out the real problems. LEARN HISTORY.

Support your local public library.

The idea of "The West" shouldn't call up images of some Corporate CEO or greedy false Politician grinding his boot into the face of some hardworking everyman. It shouldn't conjure up images of needless wars that are being fought for the wrong reasons.

Let's all remember when for some people "The West" meant BOOKS and freedom for knowledge, ideas and information.

A Hedgehog dressed up like Dracula


My brother in law actually had a hedgehog once. He got his head stuck in a cardboard tube once. Such a cute little guy. He also like running around and digging into stuff.
