  1. The Walking Dead

    He says it is no excuse as you still let the others take what they wanted, I think.
  2. Books, books, books...

    Reading The Gold Bug by Edgar Allan Poe now. Some 100 pages in and liking it alot, you can really see that this is from where the strange fiction of Lovecraft originated. Also I have always loved the setting of Early 1800s, the world is pretty much all but discovered but there is still alot of mystery left, also if you want to travel be prepared that it might take you half a year to get there.
  3. Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition

    Very much looking forward to it. Never played either of the Baldur's Gate games but have always loved story based RPGs so this should be great.
  4. Books, books, books...

    Swedish here, they will most likely send a bill with your order. Although I'm not sure if you are able to order directly from them as there is no option to select county/ state etc, they are focusing solely on norwegian customers. You could write some more address information in the big box named "For øvrig vil jeg ha sagt at ..." (moreover, I want to say) or you could probably just call/ email them and they will fix it for you.
  5. Books, books, books...

    Got a lot of new books to read! All five A Song of Ice and Fire books, Platos Republic, Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, Guns, Germs and Steel and lastly The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami. Gonna be great!
  6. Team Fortress 2 Co-op! Mann vs. Machine

    Let me start of with a YES! So who's up for a play session/ launch party ?
  7. What are the best games that utilize voice chat?

    Yeah guess so... I think you can enhance your volume too so you don't have to shout if you´re in that kind of situation.
  8. What are the best games that utilize voice chat?

    To continue on Brendon's point I think what Shac tac is doing with ARMA 2 is absolutely incredible. Mods make it possible for people hear you relative to how close you are to them and the volume of your voice, you will have to shout to make yourself heard long distances. Different radio sequences for if you want to report to command, call your squad, air support etc. By setting high standards for who can join, many in the clan actually have military experience they can create an atmosphere where they can take the game to a way other level in terms of tactics and skill but still have damn fun.
  9. Starcraft II

    Sure! I'll be there if I can. Might get some others to join too.
  10. Other podcasts

    I have pretty much listened to every episode of Hardcore History, as I also am not a historian I can't give you any help on how well done the research is. But I could give you some directions to the according to me really great episodes. Ghosts of the Ostfront- A multiple episode series about the eastern front of Germany during WW2. This series really chilled me to the bone, even though I live in Sweden the education you receive about atrocities that occurred just a few hours away from me is minimal, the rape of Prussia and the mass killings of russians so that the germans could take the land for themselves after the war for example. Just in general how close it really was that Germany defeated Soviet Russia. And had they done so nothing would have stopped them, 95% of all german casualties happened on the eastern front. Fall of Ninevah- An episode about the fall of the Syrian empire and especially the city of Ninevah. Again something that I had no idea about, he does make some good points about how every civilization thinks it's gonna last forever. The Assyrians sure did so. Punic Nightmares- A detailed walkthrough of the three punic wars between Carthage and Rome. It was these wars that would cement the rise of the roman empire as the main power of the Mediterranean as after the destruction of Carthage during the third war there was no other power left to really confront them. Follows the same style as the fall of rome series and I would think is as accurate as it needs to be, needs to be taken in account that the people writing this down was probably trying to shine a positive light on Rome, even though the third war was just them mass murdering all remaining citizens of Carthage so that they never would threaten Rome again. The new series about the mongols is also definitely worth a shot. Still as I am not an historian but just interested in history I can not tell you anything about the accuracy of facts but nonetheless it has been very interesting so far. Had no idea about the happenings of the mongol invasion of the muslim world for example.
  11. Audio books

    Will have a look at those Sherlock Holmes books later, have still only read the first one even though I really liked it. Otherwise I think that Roy Dotrice does an incredible job on the A Song of Ice and Fire books, that guy really knows how to portray a character.
