    I'm pretty sure it already is, at least in the eyes of their fans.

    Aye. For me, Pokemon was "that annoying little kids' game that somehow knocked Magic off it's throne as top-selling CCG for the first time in history."

    pah the card game was silly. The games were the only good part.

    edit: also I was subjected to Magic for the first time last fall... it was confusing and weird. :p

    I don't know what this "Magic" is to which you people are referring.

    I may have really aged myself...

    That's ok, a_g, I get along pretty well with senior citizens. Sometimes people call me an old soul. :p

    I've been called an old soak, before. That's close, right?

    Here we go -- 5 minutes to Rome II.


    Today will be a day long remembered. (I'm also picking up my first ever pair of glasses today).

    I know Deviantart gets a very bad reputation- it's one of the reasons I never intentionally went there- but I do have to say, I've found its a source for some ridiculously good Malazan fan art.

    Yeah, I know. DA actually has some decent artists on there who draw more than just furries. But you have to be careful whenever someone from Lit links to it, that's for sure.

    RC -- well, 15 min to 2 hrs of unpacking left! Plus patching...

    This game nearly killed my PC though CA was nice enough to fix that and it is awesome :D especially love that you get all kinds of fun Socii units.

    Yeah, I'm trying to stay with old republican units as long as possible... heck, I am probably going to support the republic against people trying to make themselves emperor, too.

    Skirmisher are annoying me nearly as much as in the old Rome already :mad:I swear every Barbarian Gang I encounter is made out of at least 12 units of slingers, at least you can just ride them down, as your own Skirmisher are pretty much useless do to range... though maybe I should just start sending my Spear throwers at them and have them case each other across the battle field.

    I now have Kenobi in my hands. Forget what I said earlier -- the cover is beautiful.

    Done. [face_praying]

    Hope your cousin has a speedy recovery. Lucky it was 'only' his shoulder.

    Yet you keep trying to pretend you're not a hipster.

    As I understand it, hipsters -- whatever those are -- wear these hideous, formless, squared off plastic things that look like they came from the dollar store. I'm wearing elegant designer glasses.

    ... seriously, @Trip had me take this personality quiz type thing that LensCrafters has to choose a glasses style. It was hilarious. I predictably got the "refined" result. Hipsters are about as refined as a hobo.

    You're sure you didn't get "monocle"?

    But I'd need two, and I think wearing a pair of monocles would just make me an emo goth. They sack cities -- I couldn't stand being one of them.

    I think @RC's next article is about the emogoths.
