    To be honest, the older you get, the more fitting the nicknames become. Although to be fair once you have kids you start getting used to calling them grandma and grandpa. It's only that awkward age w...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic What did you think of The Hobbit BOTFA. on the Off-Topic board

    It was fine, but the good parts were few and far between. I guess in one way you can't really blame them, but at a certain point I just got tired of the overly dramatic action. There's just too much ...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Not sure what to make of Dragon Age: Inquisition.. on the Dragon Age: Inquisition board

    Had a very similar experience with the game. Played it for about 20 hours and just not feeling the need to go back anymore. The combat just isn't interesting at all, and in my experience making a medi...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic The Bananas and Sprite Challenge. on the Dan Ryckert board

    @milkman: Hearing them describe it, it seems like the bananas trap the gas from the carbonated drink. So you wouldn't really be barfing because you ate too much or something bad, you're "burping" the...

    It's debatable if it's even a 2014 release, but what they've done in conjunction with the Diablo 3 expansion really made that game into what it should've been from the start, and then some. Not only i...
