Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Yeah, I enjoy it although by now I'm mostly only reading to my younger two kids (12 and 6). I read to the older two until long after they could read themselves.
The last one has apparently just been finished (in first draft, anyway.)
I will be sad to see CmdrTaco go, but I haven't been on
My sister quite outdid herself in that respect, getting "Karaoke Kid" for my daughter, a large Teddy Bear that sings. Very loudly. And has an attached microphone so that my daughter could sing loudly along with it. Needless to say, it had no volume control.
It was "lost" pretty quickly.
There's still some DHMO in grain alcohol -- you never get 100%. Try drinking some vegetable oil if you want to reduce your DHMO consumption.
Imagine playing a game like Team Fortress 2 with the Wii Remote, it would be terrible there is a reason why I'm not a sniper in real life, I don't like holding my arm at an angle for extended periods of time in a single spot.
I know -- I'd totally want a job where I got to shoot people in the head, but that whole holding my arm at an angle thing was a deal-breaker.
Yeah, but Robert Bloch said it first.
Richard Garriot said that EA demanded the entire U9 team move over to focus on UO, and then nearly 3 years into development, EA demanded they basically scrap the whole game to focus on a new 3D engine and start from scratch.
That being said, EA owns Bioware, perhaps the best RPG shop today. Richard Garriot isn't working for NC Soft anymore. Can bridges be mended? Most people today have heard the name Ultima, but they've never played the old Ultima games. The original trilogy was all over the place to begin with. Hobbits and such just disappeared from existence.
Why not reboot the Ultima franchise? No new worlds. No samurai. Just do Sosaria properly in an engine like Oblivion or Dragon Age.
Somebody mod this guy up.
There is no way that a) Downey is going to agree to doing an ensemble picture as a bit player after headlining 2+ Iron Man movies, or b) That the studio is going to spring for the big money it would take to hire him, just for an ensemble role in a risky new franchise.
Yeah, if Downey wouldn't play Stark in The Hulk, then why would he do it in The Avengers?
I actually first tried Earl Grey because of ST: TNG. But I drink it lukewarm, because I'm different and edgy like that.
