    i like it, even though i have yet to actually beat it (it's really, really hard). it reminds me of WEG for some reason. i'd love to see a star wars mod for it.

    also it's pretty short, like a single campaign is only ~1 hour. but, you will lose that single campaign and be compelled to try again. and again and again and again and again and again.

    so. just fyi.

    AFAIK it's about trial, error and death.

    The moment I saw the word "wedding" in reference to GOT I begun to avoid this thread for a few days. I have only read three things about this "red wedding":
    1) It's red (that can mean many things)
    2) It's a wedding (I don't know whom)
    3) It's the best thing since unsliced bread
    and I'd like to keep it that way.

    But now I came back to tell you this:

    Posting from the Arctic Circle lol.

    I almost met the King beyond the Circle (Santa Claus as he is often called) but we came late in the evening and he had already gone to rest.

    It's a fantastic movie. Used to be one of my favs (haven't seen it in years).

    A local theater played it tonight as part of a weekly summer classic-movies thing. I'd forgotten what Lucas was capable of when someone else is writing the dialogue.

    Oh well at least Remember Me is surprisingly fun, at least so far, only combat is a little bland, though granted I might just be doing it wrong.

    Our second day of ranging the North has brought us to an empty village of tourist cabins. Almost all the restaurants were closed for the season, but finally we found a store in which there were many women and one man working. After we have eaten we'll go to see the top of a big hill from where you can see for miles and miles around you.

    ...I'm enjoying this car trip a lot more than anyone else

    OMG yes! I loved the painting of Ackbar as an 18th century naval officer, so the bust is equally awesome. :D

    They're making busts of ACME prints now? I demand a statue of the Yoda/Kermit painting!

    Agreed! It looks awesome... I feel like people might get the wrong impression were I to have one. You should totally try to get one though. Know any folks going to SDCC?

    Ok. I know a whole ton of people who are going -- if you really do want one of 'em, let me know and I can put you in touch with people. I suspect they're going to sell out fast :p

    What, that you might study it to gain an insight into Ackbar and guarantee his defeat when next you face him?

    Don't be silly--he'd need a painting for that.
