    Well, you've improved the quality of my learning, Jello. I wouldn't know quite as many words if I hadn't looked up ones you used in conversations.:p

    And already Thrawn made a mistake.

    I'm female.

    Apologies- I was only paying attention to what I was quoting, not whom.

    They already admitted it was going to be a linear game, so I wouldn't consider this any great loss.

    Even if it was linear it could have been enjoyable, after all Bounty Hunter was, as is the Uncharted series. [face_plain] Though reading the article on how the originally wanted an RPG in Kotor style with the Underworld background I will just have to hate TOR even more now.

    So, Malazan has definitely gotten more interesting. It vaguely reminds me of Elder Scrolls- the gods in particular remind me of the Daedra and their realms of Oblivion. I'm nearing the end of the first book, and I'm finally starting to understand what the hell is happening! :p

    EDIT: Re: 1313. With any luck, this means a greater chance that Obsidian's proposed Dark Times RPG will get made. If simply because of less to conflict with.

    Disappointing. While I'm no fan of the underworld, I am always eager to see more of Coruscant. :(

    Thanks. That's really kind of you to say.

    Funny that TCW is probably the only trace of 1313's presence in-universe, after the game and LAS being caputs.

    Lol, I remember John Hodgman called Obama out for not actually being that big a fan at one of the Correspondents' dinners.

    I know. That was in response to his post, not the article. :p

    You're saying Episode VII won't have Vulcans? Because that's not a world I want to live in.

    I made that mistake with the Episode I video game and believe me, I am regretting that decision every day of my life.

    Quite seriously, 10 books later, 3 novellas and 4 sidestories later - I still can't tell you everything that's going on in Malazan!

    I could never make it past the second book, myself.

    Right up there with Atari's E.T. :p

    I actually did play it about halfway only because I wanted to see Coruscant. Later, I went back to finish the game just so I could see the glitchy final boss battle where you could kill Darth Maul within 5 seconds.

    I wish the bosses on Deus Ex: Human Revolution were that easy. I'm stuck at the first boss.

    THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE A STEALTH GAME AND SUDDENLY I HAVE TO FIGHT A TERMINATOR WHAT IS THIS MADNESS.

    Anyone have some good cheerful news for me? Right now the Jeff/annie fandom on Community is basically in chaos after being sucker punched, and it's really bumming me out. [face_beatup] =(( And I was kind of looking forwards to 1313, they really played it up in the last Clone Wars Ep. And Castle is on a 3 week break. So I could use some good news right now. [face_sigh]
