I've played KOTOR at least a half dozen times over the years, and it remains my favorite game of all time. I was less impressed with KOTOR II when I encountered it a decade or so ago. I had no interest in going back for many years, and when I heard about the restoration patch I decided to wait until it was complete. Now that this final version is out I'll have to take that long overdue second look. I picked up a copy of the game during that Humble Bundle Star Wars sale. Time to install.

I like Borderlands. I'll buy the next one if it's reasonably good. What more investment do I need with a company?

Video games depending what is on sale. Also, some jeans, a usb wall charger and maybe an external HDD for my Xbox. I am ready to buy provided this whole Prime sale blitz isn't just a lot of hooey.

I don't like this trailer, but I still find this movie to be the more interesting one over BvS Dawn of Justice. The Bee Gees cover song is too reminiscent of the Got No Strings song in the Age of Ultron trailer. I do like the Harley Quinn character and will be curious to see how they handle her. I'm not looking for depth or an examination of an abuse victim who continually returns to her abuser. I do not believe a traditional comic book movie can explore that tragedy without doing the topic a disservice. What I would like to see from her is just wacky violence like Lori Petty in Tank Girl. The more cartoonish it all is, the easier it is to accept.

Too freakin' young. Tragic.

Hopefully, by the end of September, we'll know what he's doing next or at least what he wants to do.

You have distinct preference of Introversion over Extraversion (69%)

You have slight preference of Sensing over Intuition (6%)

You have slight preference of Thinking over Feeling (19%)

You have slight preference of Judging over Perceiving (6%)

I think I took this once before on these pages and it was the same. Wishy-washy could have knocked me over with a feather.

I second the recommendation for Chew by John Layman and Rob Guillroy.

Another I also second-recommend is Hawkeye (2012-) by Matt Fraction and David Aja. Yes, it's about a superhero but there are no tights in this one. It's about the Avenger's life when he's not doing the superhero thing. I found it to be very down to earth and fun. Check out the My Life as a Weapon trade paperback collecting the first five issues if you're curious.

It's a good idea but access to the game of the month is the biggest issue. For me, if it's not something already on Steam or any other online retailer, I'll probably pass. The easiest thing would be to choose whatever game is free on Xbox Games with Gold or Playstation Plus for the month, but I think tnat would also be less fun and not in the spirit of exploring old worthwhile titles. I'm not sure what the answer is.

I would just like to get caught up with all the books, movies, tv shows and games I want to experience. I love binging on a series or spending a entire day on a game, but most of the time that's not possible in my life. As such, I'd relish the opportunity to not have to worry about the next days work and not plan for anything other than enjoying some entertainment.
