Blue... we are old.. please don't carbon date us. If we get any older they will put us in the Smithsonian.

Eh, after the first couple of thousand years you just get used to it. Although it helps if you have rust-proof armor, and a few undead slaves to do the dusting...

Hey, has anyone played Enderal? The new Skyrim TC. It's pretty darn good, and much easier to install than I had expected.

Might have to play this here at Barad-Dur. Orcs In Space for the win!

I'm very sorry for your loss, sauron.



I also giggled, while typing that sentence above, and now I feel bad.



Thanks, and I giggled when I read it too.

as a lover of comedy I'd have to say he was one of my icon's growing up (and for my parents growing up).

I know what you mean, he was very iconic. My mother loved him too, and she died a few months before he did, and I specifically remember thinking I'm glad she didn't have to hear that news, as she would have been absolutely crushed.


Should I skip reading it nin?

I mean, if you want to know why he did it, it pretty much explains it. His brain was under attack, and it sounds like it wasn't going to get better. I can't really blame him.



My stepfather died of the same thing, Lewy body dementia with Parkinsonism, just over a year ago. In his case, it included hallucinations, ataxia (Parkinson's-like difficulty in walking and balance), insomnia, and towards the end, scratching and biting. A few weeks before he died, he woke up screaming in the middle of the night, convinced his bedroom was filling with water and he was drowning.

It's a horrible disease which kills 100% of patients and is so stressful for the caregivers that many of them go down as well. No wonder Robin Williams ended things the way he did.

If they had bots for multi, I'd lock this down in a heartbeat. As it is, I guess I'm waiting for a price for the SP campaign.


This. And I know we're not the only ones. BF forums have many threads requesting this.

Same here. I really liked BF1942 bots, and used them to learn the ropes before jumping on the MP servers.

I did have a TON of fun in pub matches but sometimes it's good to just kick back, dial down the settings and use a botmatch to figure out all the details of a map.

HBO Chief Keen On "Thrones" Spin-Offs.

ME TOO


We got Luke Cage on NF, WestWorld on HBO, and I still have 4 episodes of Mr Robot this weekend...

Golden age of tv...


I'm in the middle of watching Stranger Things at the moment and boy is it good. I'm really enjoying it.

Also enjoying Penny Dreadful season 3, although it's so similar to life here at Barad-Dur that for the first season I thought it was a reality show...

This looks really interesting. I think it's more challenging to play games like this and the DX series as non-lethal combatants. And the graphics look really nice as well. Might have to pick this one up when it comes out.

If you want your game to really fail, make it F2P. People love grinding for their stuff.

Some games have gone F2P and made it work (Guild Wars 2 and StarWars TOR and multiple MOBAs for example), but I really don't see it working here.

To be precise, both Guild Wars games have always been free to play once you purchased the game itself.
Which is Buy To Play. Free To Play is fundamentally different, and in an important way.

You can still buy the game, but it just unlocks different features. I would call that F2P. You can download it right now and play the game for nothing.

Guild Wars 2 for free is an absolute steal. One of the best RPGs I have played, MMO or not. Really fun.

From /reddit:

You've been on here for five years, is this really the first time you've seen a "this man should play Gordon Freeman" post? Bryan Cranston, Hugh Laurie, Edward Norton, twice now Charlie Sheen, If you're white have at some point had facial hair and glasses and alive, reddit will fan cast you...

For some reason that just cracks me up.

Half-Life would make a pretty good action adventure movie, but Portal would only work as an action comedy in my opinion.

Portal could make for a great Pixar movie - really fun.

Coffee In A Cone Is About To Be The Next Big Food Craze.

Here in Mordor, the Next Big Food Craze is hobbit-flavored ice cream.

Delicious, wholesome and refreshing, although kind of high in cholesterol.

Manage to watch an hour of the debate last night before I had to turn it off or put my head through a wall to alleviate the pain of watching it. The fact that either of is where they are today, and one of them is actually going to be prez, absolutely boggles the mind. Boggles...the...mind!

Wall


I could only manage 30 seconds at a time before having to turn it off. It was even soul-crushingly depressing with the sound muted!

You know the situation in the country is getting seriously weird when an episode of Penny Dreaful seems more realistic than the presidential debate.

Seeing that you are Sauron, The Dark Lord Lord Of Earth, I would have thought you would revel in it.

Those candidates are better at inflicting agony than my chief torturer. I was quite impressed.

You do realize that they made a movie (actually seventeen movies) titled "Clustersuck." I've seen them all. Many times.


EDIT: Goddammit, Sauron, you ninja'd me by 10 seconds.

LOL! All hail the Dark Lord!

Well played, good sir.

I'm guessing that last one has already been turned into a movie. And that it didn't star a vacuum cleaner...
