  1. What Have You Bought?

    Thanks, I didn't think the game was well-known enough to have received its own thread. I'll check it out. Can't seem to get a handle on if the game is so bizarre it's good or if it's just bizarre.
  2. Fable III

    I got that achievement within the first ten minutes. Pretty much the only thing you can do with people right at the start before you leave the castle is shake their hands. I tried to get the achievement for getting twenty friends last night, but I kept losing friends faster than I could make new ones. My counter would go up to 14, and when I made a new friend after that it would go up to 12. It probably has something to do with the high rent in my property empire, but I need that money to save people. I wish they'd realize that. Finally I just gave up. I'm done traveling all around the world digging up junk for people. If I hadn't been a shining beacon of goodness up until now I'd just let them all die.
  3. N-E Awards 2010 Results!

    I could see Nightwolf proposing a bikini contest around the end of 2011 in a desperate bid to finally win an award. And then she'd end up losing to ReZ.
  4. What Have You Bought?

    You'll have to write about Deadly Premonition once you've played it. It seems utterly bizarre and strangely interesting.
  5. How I Met Your Mother

    After all this hype, this had better be the most legendary episode ever, or I'm going to be very disappointed later tonight. Don't let me down, N-Europe forum members!
  6. Pete Postlethwaite has passed away.

    He had a pretty awesome final year, at least: Inception and that movie ReZ liked.
  7. 2010: Cinema in Review.

    I forgot about How to Train Your Dragon. That film was surprisingly good! Probably my favorite of DreamWorks' animated efforts.
  8. To Boldly Age...

    One small step for a man, one giant leap for Mike. Well, one day, anyway. Happy birthday.
  9. Haha, thanks. Dude. ;)

  10. Hatred For Webcomics

    That's unfortunate, but isn't an excuse for a sucky webcomic. Especially when it has been so bad for so long.
  11. Fallout: New Vegas

    Can't you just turn off hardcore mode if you're not enjoying it?
  12. Fable III

    I don't miss the expression wheel, but that's probably because I've always hated interacting with the non-plot-essential NPCs in the Fable games. *Patty-cake* "Get this item for me" "Yay, now we're friends!" *Cluck like a chicken* "Lead me by the hand to that place over there" *Kiss* "I have never loved anyone like I love you" I feel like I'm taking advantage of mentally handicapped people.
  13. Hatred For Webcomics

    The original writer left the webcomic. I guess that might explain it?
  14. bad stuff thread.

    No, it's when you stop getting older that you die. Duh.
  15. Electronic Cigarettes

    Haha, what a terrible thing to say to someone who's going to try to quit smoking. "It never gets better." :p
  16. Happy birthday, Scoop. ... And those other guys, I guess. Whatever.
  17. Electronic Cigarettes

    It's not going to feel like a real cigarette unless people are treating you like a pariah and you're standing outside in the cold with it, anyway.
  18. Hatred For Webcomics

    Scoop posted about how much he hates MegaTokyo (apparently more than Ctrl+Alt+Del, but that's surely just an exaggeration!) at the beginning of this page. It's seems pretty terrible, but luckily I've always had the good sense to stay away from it. Enjoy reading Ctrl+Alt+Del! Other awesome webcomics: Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal and The Non-Adventures of Wonderella.
  19. Hatred For Webcomics

    I second Scoop's recommendation of Shortpacked! for anyone who's into toy collecting. Or even if you're not, because David Willis is just that good a writer. I really need to read Gunnerkrigg Court. I remember checking it out when it was new, and now I keep hearing great things about it, so I kind of regret not bookmarking it back then. No one likes archive trawling.
  20. N-E Awards 2010 Results!

    "People you would most like to get stuck in a stairwell with." Hm, doesn't have the same ring to it.
  21. N-E Awards 2010 Results!

    Always the bridesmaid, never the bride, huh?
  22. The Hottest Games of 2011

    That Demon's Souls guy is pretty rude and needs to stop comparing apples and oranges. D:
  23. New Year's Eve Plans?

    So he owes you, then. Fair enough. He should have known that there's no such thing as a free meal.
  24. The Hottest Games of 2011

    Is it "Hi, I'm a completely different game and while I'm focused on strategic combat, Dragon Age is focused on story and characters"? Because if so, I agree.
  25. New Year's Eve Plans?

    Yes, but unless you're paying him, I assume he's doing it because he gets some sort of enjoyment out of it. Or maybe he just really, really likes you. Or you've got something on him. Whichever.
