@thatpinguino: I always tend to take more than I need to. I just write down anything that could even possibly be important or useful. I even sketched out an entire puzzle to ponder it while I was in class one day. So yea normal people would probably be about half of what I did, but it's still probably the most notes you will end up taking through all of the games.

@humanity: I don't know that inaccessible is the right word. It's just flat out the hardest one by a vast margin. I had between 20 - 30 pages of notes when I finished it for the first time. Now since you can get it on a dvd/ digitally and avoid the disk switching it feels a lot more like one big world and not so broken up.

Riven remains my favorite game in the series by far. I still have the solution to one of the biggest puzzles commited to memory. Hope you end up enjoying it!

@rethla: Huh, I was under the impression they started on the Q3's. Nevermind then. Thanks!

So will Hamilton and Rosberg have to start on those tires tomorrow (weather permitting) or are their slides counted as accidents? If they have to start with those crazy flat spots Vettel might have a bit of a window to move up early in the race. Rosberg especially looked like he left a ton of rubber on the track.

@mrtrainman: I'm kind of in the same boat as you, and I think the answer really is just start watching. The more you watch the more you will pick up on names and teams from the commentators and interviews. This thread is a great place to ask about anything you don't understand about the sport, theres plenty of very long timers in here. Monaco will be on American Network television as mentioned on this weeks podcast (NBC I think Danny said?) If that's not an option the internet always finds a way to have that kind of stuff running live if you want to go down that dark hole.

In the past I used to be able to watch every quick look, video, or whatever other thing they did. Now that they have two studios and can just pump stuff out I can't do that anymore, and that's totally fine. However much content is being made is always the right amount becasue I trust that it's how much they can do. Besides at the quality level they have been maintaining in the past year, the more the better.

I want to see Dan take on fortune street. Plus it could be educational for him.

This will all turn out fine I'm sure, but I'm actually gonna miss their current set. The whole thing felt so thrown together and hand-built in a way that more professional studios don't, and the basement space felt the same way. Hopefully the new space brings that same kind of feel.

Many years ago I played a whole lot of ROSE online, another Korean MMO that started coming out here. It had the whole shop thing and a really thriving crafting economy. Same kind of thing where the capital city had so many shops you could barely see the ground. Also most or every area had a single world boss kind of enemy that respawned 10 or so minutes after you killed him, but they were hard. Like took the 50 or so people leveling in the area a solid minute or two to kill him. I don't know if the entire game ever came out, but the plan was for there to be 7 planets that players progressed through. I played for months and my friends and I made it to the second planet. At the time there were only the two out (maybe 3?) but the amount of content that would be present if all 7 planets were released was kind of staggering.

Also Tabula Rasa seemed interesting during development, but I never played it as people seemed kinda lukewarm about it when it came out.
