Comment V&V was a hell of a system - for its time (Score 1) 71

Don't get me wrong, I loved V&V, I played it for years, but it's so amazingly outdated now. If you want the same feel but with a smoother system, try out Icons from Adamant Entertainment. You get the awesomeness of a randomly-rolled superhero (try it, it's a great creative springboard), a nice combat system, no miniatures to worry about, and a great story balance between high-powered supers and lower-powered ones. And yes...these are the same folks coming out with the Buckaroo Banzai RPG.

Comment Hey, I use that! (Score 1) 475

I use citrus zest all the time! If this technique changes the flavor, texture, or aroma of my fruit, I say stick with the labels. I can peel off a label and still have the whole zest. That etching means I lost a good chunk of peel I'd use for candied citrus peel, not to mention making any sorbet served inside an orange just plain silly-looking.

Rawhide: Dr. Banzai is using a laser to vaporize a pineal tumor without damaging the parthogenital plate. A subcutaneous microphone will allow the patient to transmit verbal instructions to his own brain. Observer: Like, "raise my left arm"? Rawhide: Or "throw the harpoon." People are gonna come from all over. This boy's an Eskimo.
