    That actually sounds pretty cool. I'm never buying an AC game at full price again, but I'll look forward to that when I eventually get around to IV.

    How did I miss that? I thought that was a cliffhanger, and more was going to happen.

    So, I downloaded Tiny Death Star. A simple game, but a fun way to pass time if you are sitting in a car or killing time. Now I can't wait to see canon inclusionists try to explain how it is official. :p

    Isn't building a Death Star considered blasphemy among Ackbar fans? [face_thinking]

    My kids downloaded that game a couple of days ago; it showed up on my iPad as well but I haven't tried it yet.

    Nah, it gives us something to lead an attack against. [face_batting]

    The best part of the game is the music. It is something that is perfect for killing time on an iPad. I am still waiting for Angry Birds Star Wars to release their Endor Space Battle levels, but it just says "Coming Soon".

    They make the Imperial March so cute. I love it.

    I downloaded it too... in the interests of adding stuff to the Wook. I've seen three or four WEG references so far.

    No, not even kidding.

    There are a ton of EU references, so obviously there are some serious fans who helped create the game.

    Lately, I've been breeding Synchronize Abras, trying to get one with an impish Nature. I have amassed an Abra Army. Anyone interested in adopting an Abra? I'll go through my TMs and hook adoptees up with at least one offensive move. Currently, anything is better than Teleport.

    So, apologies on the late reply, but I've been wondering how you're going to cope if you're still reading the book after each season. S3 does not cover all of book 3, and then things are really going to get complicated.

    Do you have a strategy, man?

    While one could potentially read approximately half of A Storm of Swords (though it might end up being a bit more than half, I can't remember the books structure precisely), that would be utterly maddening. I'd just recommend reading book 3 after season 4 airs.

    But look what's here: Official predictions for the third season. If a prediction doesn't come true, you get your money back!

    Well..... That was fast....

    My uncle died early this morning. Diagnosed 16 Oct, died 12 Nov. Was he in pain and suffering? Undoubtedly. Better that he's now elsewhere? Yeah, but that doesn't make it all that much easier.

    So..... Feeling strange.

    I just read your supposition of the dagger and the poisoning of Jon Arryn. Heh.

    I'm sorry. [:D] My aunt went really quickly too, a month from diagnosis to death. It doesn't make it easier on us I don't think, just on the person.

    To be fair "like" is inadequate in this instance, but as it's the only feature.... Thanks.

    My condolences, Ben.

    And wait- how does one make predictions about GoT? Isn't it all more or less the same as the books? :p

    I'm very sorry for your loss, Ben. I've lost an uncle as well, but it's not even close to the same thing, as I barely knew the man, and every meeting we had told me I would have never liked him. I wish your family the best.

    I hate the internet.

    Finally can get to where I can do a long Jedi Prince chapter reread, and my computer, which is what has been preventing me from doing one these past two weeks, crashes on me when I'm almost done.

    I suppose there's nothing like dissecting a chapter of Jedi Prince twice...
