In unrelated news, we've got a few guys from a different unit tagging along with us to the field. In the interest of making them feel welcome, I offered my spare sleeping bag to the Native American private among them. Perplexingly, he took exception to that.

Ty, you said you sent me some stuff yesterday but it never showed up in my inbox. Would you mind sending it again? I'd send you a PM but you don't really check them.

Bought myself Dragon Age Origin on Steam for €5, as it is currently 75% off.

Overlong Analysis Cobalt wrote:@swicked
Here're some fantasy and fantasy-ish series I've read.

Spoiler:
Wheel of Time has got some good stuff in it - I didn't finish it, for various reasons, but it's generally regarded as a modern classic. It's all about prophecy and archetypes and hair braiding.

Assassin's Apprentice and the following two books in the trilogy are both quite good, IMO; bit miserable sometimes, but I thought it was quite engaging (and better than the two sequel trilogies that followed different events in the same world, with some of the same characters).

The Black Company is a very interesting series of books - again, not one I've finished, but I might go back to it. The first book especially has a very cool premise, following an aging mercenary company that's been hired to help put down a rebellion against basically a fantasy Evil Empire.

Temeraire is a bit more geared towards younger audiences, IMO, but it's earlier books at least are worth a read. Alternate history Napoleonic Wars in which enormous dragons crewed by men with guns form an old-fashioned air force for the world's powers. Later books start globetrotting a bit too much, I think, and have long periods of "they walked around and were miserable in Australia because there was so much bloody desert everywhere."

The Dark Tower is a seven (sort of eight, now) book cycle by Stephen King. It is REALLY weird. Seriously, it's got its own internal logics that you eventually start to learn, only to throw half of them out halfway through and make you learn a whole new set. Extremely metafictional. Stephen King appears in the story. Follows Roland, a sort of knight errant crossed with Clint Eastwood, as he travels his dying world. Having read other novels of King's is recommended before tackling it, but definitely not necessary for at least the first novel or two (modern printings of novels that tie into The Dark Tower are marked with a revolver tied up with a thorny rose inside a keyhole, somewhere on the back of the book - most of the big ones do, as do plenty of the lesser-known ones). "The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed." Get the illustrated editions, they're worth it IMO.

The Sword of Truth is great if you want to watch a fantasy author earnestly attempt to perform cunnilingus on Ayn Rand's decaying corpse, with a lot of weird BDSM stuff thrown in. This series is a train wreck, but worth a read if you're looking for a trillion-page joke that keeps on giving. Highlights: the main characters cutting their way through a bunch of peaceful Vietnam War protester expys, our hero getting amnesia so he can rip off The Fountainhead for an entire book, speeches to two people who agree with what's being said that take up several pages each, evil chickens, children having their teeth punched down their throat by the good guys, football, murder football, magical virgins, Darth Vader, tacticlol bullshit, a lot of castration (by our heroes), Bigger and More Powerful-style progression that would make an anime blush, a whole book about why democracy is stupid and fascism is great, pain-addict lesbian sex, and medieval Soviet Russia. And this is not meant to be a morally gray story, either, which is why it's even funnier. Unfortunately, you have to get through the first few books, which are just painfully banal, to get to the parts where the author stopped taking his meds.

The Talisman is another Stephen King one, written alongside Peter Straub (also a horror author, albeit more of an artsy, surrealism-loving one). It's inspired by Huckleberry Finn, with universe-hopping, werewolves, nuclear hellfire, uzis, angels, cancer, utterly corrupt juvenile correctional facilities, preacher-men with sniper rifles, and a lot of weirdness. Some people don't like it; personally, I love it. Obviously, it's more pseudo-fantasy than fantasy proper. Its sequel, Black House, is much more straight-up horror.

Mary Stewart's The Crystal Cave is a cool retelling of Arthurian myth through the eyes of Merlin, starting with his youth. It's a lot closer to Game of Thrones than to the BBC Merlin TV show. Haven't read it in quite a while, but I do remember it being heavy on guile and trickery rather than sorcery.

Dresden Files, if urban fantasy counts as fantasy. Harry Dresden, professional wizard and private detective. I keep up with the series, personally, even though some of the stuff the author does prose-wise doesn't cut it for me. Nerdy references, grimdarkness, had a crummy TV show that ran for one season on SciFi back before it became Welsh.

Jack Vance's Dying Earth books. Fucking top-tier oldschool fantasy. Inspired a lot of DnD concepts. The world is a lot like what Adventure Time would later come up with, albeit with less cutesy stuff and with no Finn and Jake. Instead, you get a plethora of rogues and assholes, most famously Cugel the Clever, who really isn't all that. Amazing prose, hilarious dialogue and situations, uncomfortably dark sometimes.

Brandon Sanderson's Stormlight Archives. It's only two books in, but they're both ponderous friggin' tomes, so they'll last you. Sanderson's the guy who wrote Mistborn. This is basically more of the same, but stretched out both in length and scale to a more epic fantasy format. Takes cues from Wheel of Time, which makes sense because he's the guy they hired to finish that series IIRC. So far, it's been pretty darn good.

Codex Alera series. First one's called "Furies of Calderon." The first book takes forever to pick up, but the later ones are paced better. The plot arc is not that original, but the world is cool and the villains are neat. Apparently, it was written after an argument Jim Butcher had about whether or not you could write a good story with a lame idea. He asked for two, received "Pokemon" and "the Lost Roman Legion" and made this. The connection to the former is a bit tenuous, and he could have done a bit more with the Roman offshoot civilization idea, but it's fun.

Uh, yeah! I could probably name a few more, but hopefully you can find something that sparks your interest in that list.
Adding "The Black Company", "Dying Earth", "Assassin's Apprentice", and "Stormlight Archives" to the queue Twilight Sparkle

Reminds me there's a new Terminator movie that's supposed to come out soon.

And basically through time travel fuckery they're going to revisit Terminator 1.

They also brought Schwarzi out of the mothball.

So, I've finally installed and started playing "EYE: Divine Cybermancy". A few minutes in so far.

It's.... certainly a game.

Just gotta say for the record that in-game currency being called "brouzoufs" is kind of fucking hilarious. 'Cause in French, that's the equivalent of saying "dough" to talk about money. In short, it's clearly made by fucking nerds.


Also, I can practically hear the French accent of the voice actor playing the Mentor, even if he isn't talking any real language.

So, yeah, so far it feels like it's been done by talented amateurs.


I'll keep y'all updated as I progress.

When you choose maintenance, the resulting english text is 'my legs are okay', guess you're either playing in French or haven't tried that action out yet

You know, thinking about it, it's kind of funny how I was most hyped for Hotline Miami 2 not for the game itself, but for its OST.

Especially since I've been listening the shit out of said OST since the game came out, and of Carpenter Brut too (which is featured in the OST), but have neither bought nor played the game yet.


I guess I just treat Hotline Miami as some kind of cool music compilation series? :v

Oh yeah, that's what I like to read in the morning!


On another note, I've finally managed to get Fallout 3 to run on Win 8.1 (or at least not to crash on startup).

To celebrate that, do people have a "Best Of" of Fallout 3 Mods? Kind of like E.V.E. and Project Nevada for Fallout New Vegas?

I would call him Sparky and feed him raiders, but fill them before that with gasoline. Someone deleted post with interesting mod.

As for mods to recommend...I'm afraid to start up NMM, since there is 200+ mods. I'd recommend westland flora and fauna mod. Turns Mohave in either even more Westlandy or more greenish place, with more trees and grass. Also Get electrocity. Makes nights actually darker and lights matter.
Dozens of reskins for weapons, armor, etc.
Waaaaaait...Fallout 3...? dammit T_T
Fellout mod, there is EVE for Fo3. If you like playing from first person perspective - Helmet view.
I'll provide liks to all.
