    Team Future has a new Giger-esque in the works
  1. I survived. Mostly. Borderlands Pre Sequel; Wolfenstein : The Old Blood; Valkyria Chronicles; Homeworld Remastered. Could have been waaay worse but I've already got a hideous amount of miniatures to paint and a WoW guild to kinda sorta run.
  2. 34. I started posting here when I was 21. Dear flip.
  3. Well well. If they can just give it a slightly more vibrant red skin tone I'll be as happy as Larry. However happy he is.
  4. Well doesn't this just look lovely?
  5. I enjoyed God-Emperor for the emotional side of Leto, as well as watching the next Duncan ghola try to adapt. The prequels aren't utterly terrible, but they do gloss over a lot of the political and emotional details, and feel a lot less involving. I found it nigh-on impossible to feel attached to any of the characters in 'Legends of Dune', except for maybe Vorian Atredies and Xavier Harkonnen. What doesn't help is the fact that Herbert and Anderson seem fond of killing off everyone they possibly can. I saw far too many similarities between these books and Anderson's Star Wars books - understandable, obviously, but the problem is that I hated his Star Wars books, too >:( Bring back Timothy Zahn!
  6. A shame that the new seies of books has utterly gutfucked Herbert's original work. His son should be ashamed.
  7. Oh, screw it...
  8. To quote the report on BBC News... Inevitably, people will wonder whether the creature's DNA might also be found. But the "life molecule" degrades rapidly over thousand-year timescales, and the chances of a sample surviving from the Cretaceous are not considered seriously.
  9. Thrakan - Level 39 Orc Shaman on the European 'Earthen Ring' server (Role Playing). About halfway to level 40, and I've got 90 gold set aside for a Wolf + riding training, and I've also stashed away some nice looking chainmail armour.
  10. Same here; World of Warcraft is now an integral part of my life - luckily, Jay plays too, so we're not, ah, 'estranged'.
  11. Spectacular. All hail Little Britain!
  12. Industrial, thrash and a little doom metal. There are also some bands that people tend to thoughtlessly dump into the hated 'nu-metal' catagory.
  13. Are all of your posts going to be this constructive?
  14. I'm already ten steps ahead of you.
  15. Just found this through planetavp.com. Some brilliant comic strips about an Alien and Predator living together in New York. This one in particular is a favourite.
