    The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Get the version narrated by Nick Podehl. It's one of my favorite books of all time and easily the best audiobook performance I've ever heard.

    @turboman: Totally don't understand this complaint at all. I mean, it's not a fantastic performance or anything, but it's significantly better than most video game voice acting. It's totally fine.

  • nophilip posted a message in the forum topic How much easier than Mega Man is Shovel Knight really? on the Shovel Knight board.

    You can kind of break the whole game with the Phase locket. Shovel Knight is a pretty rough game if you're going for the no relics achievement.

  • nophilip posted a message in the forum topic Some Questions Concerning on the Icewind Dale board.

    The Icewind Dale games are more combat focused than most of the Infinity Engine games. The combat to story ratio is a lot higher there than most of the games of that era.

    Didn't they already hire, then drop Mark Wahlberg from the Uncharted movie? That whole thing sounded like the worst possible version of an Uncharted film.

    Mass Effect is one of my favorite game series ever, and I doubt that I'm going to have the same lasting love for Destiny, but my time spent with the Destiny beta has been really enjoyable. I sincerel...

    Boy, so many problems in this article. The one I'll highlight is that reviews CANNOT be objective. How can you expect one person's interactions (and following opinions) with a game to apply to everyo...

  • nophilip posted a message on the post Microsoft Laying Off 18,000 Employees.

    I don't know that we've ever seen a company this big backpedal this hard before. They seem to have abandoned just about everything that was in their original vision for the system at this point.
