Can any of you legal types out there explain to me how companies can trademark products based on works in the public domain? I've never understood that. For example, how do movie studios secure rights to all those different versions of Dracula? Don't they conflict with each other? They're all based on Bram Stoker's novel which is firmly in the public domain. Does the movie industry just conduct gentlemen's agreements amongst themselves that competing versions won't be released at the same time?

I don't know. Spending points to upgrade your ring with different abilities might be kinda fun. Especially if we get the opinion to go rogue and kick little blue guy ass all over the place.

"an orgasm a day keeps the doctor away", it says: "Health promotion experts advocate five portions of fruit and veg a day and 30 minutes' physical activity three times a week. What about sex or masturbation twice a week?"

This statement does not appear consistent. How do you experience orgasm without sex or masturbation?

an "interrupt system" for ending tedious conversation

I wonder why developers put "tedious conversation" in the game? Is that a feature?

one of those franchise reboots that the kids are all so wild about these days

I'm not so wild about it. Like the movie industry, it shows a distinct elimination of anything creative.

see if can hold my attention for a bit.

That was my biggest problem with this game. I was able to focus on it long enough to complete with one character, but then I thought about trying to go through the 'evil' campaign, but just lost interest in playing. All the quests pretty much work out the same way in the game mechanics so it gets repetitive very quickly. Most games that have a good and evil campaign I have no problem playing through both sides. Sacred really needs better writers and designers that can hold the player's attention through compelling story-telling and game play design.

Someone's been reading "The Wasp Factory".

They'd probably have better luck with something like this if it was aimed at music videos. Girls could record themselves dancing and singing with their favorite performers and upload the clips to youtube.

I'm reading a book called Dream Warriors by Graham Masterton right now which basically has the same premise.

I love their policy that they dont re-hire people who got laid off

This seems to be SOP at many businesses, if not most of them. I wonder what the rationale behind it is? I would think rehire would be easier than bringing in someone unfamiliar with the company if management didn't have a specific complaint against that individual, but HR doesn't seem to operate that way. The strange thing is that even management goes through turnover, so even if there was bad chemistry with your super, that person may not be there anymore, but because computers remember everything forever, they still won't hire you.

I like NWN2, and I would have bought this, but the computer I play games on is not connected to the internet.

yeah, it's a pretty much perfect computer adaptation of Shadow over Innsmouth. I loved the part where you were in your bedroom and they were banging on the door and you had to block the door with furniture and leap out the window.
