Oh, and in my playthrough, the cliff-jumping death of that particular character was in no way inadvertent. I was presented with a pretty clear choice: this race, or that race. Choose who becomes extinct. Tough one.

Lost pig sounds interesting.  Might keep his interest.  Let me know how it works.  Mine son is too old for that and is too in to Minecraft to care about text based adventures - although I am trying to teach him to program some simple ones....  Fun all around.

Still playing LOTRO

You're wasting your money; lotteries are a tax on people who are bad at math.

If your locale offers a 3-digit lottery, as in the old mob-run "numbers game" and if the payoff is at 250:1 or better, then here's the trick:

1. pick 120 of your favorite 3-digit numbers or pick 120 3 digit numbers at random.
2. bet each of those 120 numbers every day without fail.

According to probability theory, you will win on 3 out of 5 days. It is a profitable venture.

Yes, but only until Mondo and da boys come over for a visit.

What in the name of all things digital is this stupid #GamerGate clusterfuck?

Everyone involved is an asshole.

On one side you've got a bunch of mindless jerks running a trolling campaign.

On the other side you've got a bunch of social justice jerks being as loudly butthurt as they possibly can.

It's like the Iran-Iraq War as described by Henry Kissinger: "It's a pity they can't *both* lose."

The new Dragon Age comes out in November. My almost-7-year-old Core2Duo is not going to cut it. This makes me unbearably sad, particularly in conjunction with the $800ish bill for automotive repairs.

My kids received a Wii U as a Christmas gift from their grandparents this year.

And you know what? I think as a game console it's pretty damn good! I don't care what the gamer snobs think. The graphics are fabulous, the first-party titles (that I've seen) are slick, and even the controller has a nice solid feel to it.

I am officially reaching the undeniable conclusion that rumors of the Wii U's market failure are mere astroturf.

I got an Atari Playback 5 for Christmas. It is okay, but I think they purposely made the graphics worse for
that retro feel. I am using a standard definition TV, everything has the extra sprites around it and the colors
next to other colors are off.
My biggest complaint, is I wanted the Atari 2600 Space Invaders game. It was listed on the box but instead I
was treated to a Tatio version of the game. While close to the arcade version I don't think it follows the x
number of shots before the mother ship appears.
What I wanted the Atari Space Invaders for his all the alternative games Atari had. Invisible Invaders, moving
Shields invaders, etc. They packed several games into it. I was sad I got an close to the arcade version.

My other complaints, they have a lot of paddle games but don't include paddles. The joysticks are inferred, if
they are not pointing directly at the base they don't work. They have a lot of bogus games, like "Math".

Even the old regular Wii is quite good, actually

It's still a great system. Hardcore gamers have always hated Nintendo because it lacks the excessively violent games found on other platforms. A lot of Wii consoles were sold into households where video games might not have been played at all before.

meanwhile its quiet hard to get new games for the wii

one has better luck searching ebay and bying old ones which one didn´t try yet.

I guess this is due to the hacked state...

Well, there are some games with adult themes, but the majority of the of the games that go to Xbox/PS are not available, I agree.

There is "Manhunt 2", but it is not much fun. The funniest gore game on the Wii is imho

House of the Dead is quiet funny, too:

dothebart: If you do not care about the language of the box, try ordering via They are shipping from the channel islands, so avoid orders over 27,50€ or you'll need to pay Einfuhrumsatzsteuer and the Zoll guys might have a look at the game, which is bad if it is on the Index (Manhunt and MadWorld are!). You will get the gory version for the UK market, as an added benefit.

I ordered lots of games there, even used once. I never had a problem or bad discs or something like that. And they are all PAL, only the northamerican, japanese and australian ones are NTSC.
