I believe I'd rather spend my weekend playing games rather than waiting for them to download. 50 gigs is waaay too large a download for trial.

It's as good a list as any, I guess. I like RPGs, so the absence of those games on your list leaves me rather indifferent. But, who am I to judge? Good on you for liking what you like.

Skyrim. I think I have around 450 hours according to Steam. It's the community which keeps the game fresh. There are so many new items, quests, characters, and game changes everyday. I never tire of it because the game is constantly evolving.

Can I still vote for Skyrim? Seriously, I'm only moderately interested in both because I have reservations about both. At present, I don't consider either "day one" purchases. I don't know enough about either. I do know that I highly value character customization and being able to create my own story over playing through someone else's. The greater the ability I have to personalize the game, the deeper I am drawn into its world and story. I adored the original Dragon Age, but the sequel lost me as it moved to mainstream appeal. I played the game exclusively in tactical view.

As for Witcher 3, well it might be another of those "great" games that I never get around to playing because I have no desire to hang out with the main character for 40 hours.

I have an Air. It works just as well as on the PC. Very responsive. Patrick's video "I Dunno, Let's Play Hearthstone?" inspired me to try it on the PC. I prefer it on my Ipad. For some reason, I feel that if I am going to be sitting down to my PC, I should be playing something with a bit more meat to it. Either way, on the Air there is no chug, no tearing and load times are the same as on the PC.

Would have really loved to see what might have come from a Kingdoms of Amalur 2. The first one had its problems, but it set down a good foundation for something better.

ANY FELLOW ONE PIECE LOVERS??

Right here fellow duder! It's only my favorite anime. I'm currently rapping up the fishman island arc.

I've seen every episode through about two-thirds of the Fishman Island Arc. I'm probably about 60 or so behind, but I stopped to read the manga. I am up to Sky Island.

You know it! the sad part is I am caught up so I can't stop watching until the end of the arc and that could be months from now. this arc seems really interesting.

That's why I tend to wait about 50 episodes before dipping into a story arc. I watch shows when they're complete and then marathon them over a weekend. Of course, with something One Piece, you can't do that so I just stockpile a large number than hope it ends before I get caught up. Right now, I'm reading the manga at night after work. I'll be at it for another month at least, I believe.

Frozen (4.5 out of 5) - Great music but the twist was sooo obvious I felt bad when it happened. I kept hoping they'd go in a more creative direction. The rest was good though and the "Let it Go" song is the best Oscar-nominated-from-a-Disney/Pixar-movie song since "When She Loved Me" in 1999. I liked "When Will My Life Begin?" from Tangled more, though.

My money is on dinosaurs. I think they're due for a comeback.
