    Sorry for an answer to something so old, but OH MY GOD KING OF THE DRAGON PASS. Seriously, if you like turn based strategy a la 90s you won't be disappointed.
  2. The Witcher

    Nay, at the time Witcher was published the relevant books weren't even in English. That was just conscious decision not to dumb story down. btw: People, try playing it with original (Polish) voiceovers. I heard many good things from the people who did try this.
  3. Movie/TV recommendations

    Don't get your hopes too high (especially if you've read the book).
  4. Movie/TV recommendations

    Yep, it's Solaris and Solyaris is just bad translation back from Russian title.
  5. It's so glorious that I almost feel bad for using Adblock.
  6. Actually, this gives me hope for the future. If I can't get any decent job after I graduate I might just go with this shit* and scam people. Hooray! *or GET RIPPED IN FOUR WEEKS, or become single mom and DISCOVER SECRET TO WHITE TEETH BTW: they have 22 thousand active members on their forums. They have a radio. Pardonné-moi, an Official Radio. I'm scared.
  7. Far Cry 2

    Yep. I think I'm going to finish it again, this time on Infamous, I'm about 25% in.
  8. Books, books, books...

  9. Basically, ever since Ebony more and more similar browser games try exactly the same strategy. Over at GWJ we have a topic full of links to such stuff and quite regularly someone posts a new finding. This is my favourite.

    "Two handjobs for under five bucks? That's a great deal in any economy" reminded me of this amazing Onion video:
  11. Books, books, books...

    Yes, yes and yes. Book is a whole different thing. It's a very intricate jewel of writing, where you've got themes ranging from Voltaire, through Conan Doyle to One Thousand and One Nights with religious debate, Aristotle and medieval setting overlayed on top of everything. (Like other Eco's books it's very postmodern in that aspect) Therefore it isn't surprising that movie didn't have too big ambition of being the book but just focused on the gust of the story and was very competent in that regard. But that's precisely why someone who did love the book might hate the adaptation. I didn't. I did enjoy both, although on entirely different levels. You should definitely read the book. @Chris: Did you read Baudolino? It's Nameoftheroseish in many aspects and I guess you're going to like it. I've read it back in high school and ever since I wanted to pick it up again. @vimes: Eco is Italian and from what I recall all his books are too.
