Unfortunately the damage it did was devastating. I was a teen in the 90's and this shit is the reason I'm just now delving into D&D for the first time in my life.

Do you think you might have time to make the podcast about how you and the lovely Mrs. Wheaton met sometime this year? You've been promising it for ages. :D

Why do I have the vision of Wil laying in the middle of his office floor making dice angels, laughing hysterically, while Anne, with hammer and nail, is busy boarding up the door?

That damn grey space suit always looked like it was on backwards.

Firstly, don't scare us like that, I got this news from reddit first and the link there didn't give us the relief of your final sentence, I was almost in tears, man. Second, LOVE THAT HAT!!! Do you know when you the w00t will be in Portland again? I'm planning a trip out that way and it would be the highlight of my year to see you marvelous geeks.

I picked up the Fragile Things audiobook after you said how much you'd liked it on Twitter, it was amazing, as are all his books. I love Neil's books, but his audiobooks are simply wonderful. He has a fantastic voice for storytelling.

I'm starting to think the D20 you roll for "Awesome" just might be loaded.

Wil, I've been going through a really rough time over the last year or so, but since finding your books/blog/podcast I don't feel so bad, and I'm confident things will get better. Reading through your archive really inspires me, so much so that I've started writing again after more than a decade. Thanks for sharing your life with us. *manly bro-hug*

I've always thought "No, but I am sleeping with his wife!" would be a brilliant response.

D*Con is the same weekend as PAX Prime, I think it'll be really difficult to drag Wil away from it. :(

Aww, now don't Fawkes and Codex make just a darling couple.

I'm really starting to hate that I moved from Oregon to Florida. There's just so much cool geek stuff on the west coast.

The final exchange with Sheldon had me seeing a bit of Floyd Hansen in Evil Wil Wheaton. Do you ever worry that some people might confuse geek idol, family man, and generally nice guy Wil, with Sociopathic, Arch-Nemesis, relationship ruining to win at bowling Evil Wil? P.S. Nice bowling form BTW.

I'd imagine he'd be right cheery, what with all the good Canadian beer he'd be killing his brain with.

I'm thinking we should start a letter writing campaign to get Wil the SyFy trifecta. Eureka is taken care of, now we just need to get him on Caprica and Stargate Universe.

I so very much wanted to go to PAX, but alas I couldn't get off work. It sounds like such a wonderful event. Though I am mildly worried that it may be too overwhelming, I've never been to any con. Yes, I should be stripped of my geek badges and sent out to the desert for being in my 30's and never going to any cons, but I'm trying to rectify this. Is PAX too much for a beginner, or will I be just fine? Congrats on not getting sick.

Wil, I think you need a new voice on your staff. I suggest a large, muscular, Italian-American named "I'm Wil-FRAKKIN-Wheaton and DON'T you forget it!" to act as a bouncer and through out that punk ass bitch Voice of Self Doubt and all his douchebag friends. Congrats on finishing, wish I could be there to watch you perform it.

PAX-SUN is the greatest idea on the planet. Followed closely by wootstock Florida edition. HINT HINT!!

I won't chime in on the merits of "professionately", but I would like to profess that "unprofessionate" is completely cromulent and has already been added to my vocabulizations.

I'm flabbergasted that no one has yet mentioned that HIDEOUS rug! The nerd periodicals and literature are great, and the snacks make me want a nosh, but then I look past all that and see that terrible carpet *shudder*. And Wil's feet remind me that I need to get a new pair of Chucks. :D

As a certain balding, fat, yellow, guy we (should) all love would say, "WOOOHOOO!!" Any idea, if this will be a Series 3 episode or are they working on Series 4 now?

Could that song possible be more full of win? I THINK NOT!!! I'll check my magic 8 ball. Yeah, it's saying "Bazinga FTW" I think it agrees.

Hi, I'm Cal, and I've never seen Akira. Man I suck! I'll remedy this immediately, (I love NetFlix! Don't you?) Oh and Wil, "Tetsuo gets off my goddamned lawn" made me waste precious beer. Lesson learned, don't be drinking Ruination while reading Wil's blog.

Nah, that's what happens when you stand too close to the warp nacelles.

I totally agree that games can far surpass the narrative qualities of movies. There is something so powerful about being part of the story rather than simply watching it. I've been really disappointed with RPGs for consoles, for me role playing was always about playing with a group. Single player RPGs, even ones with NPC parties, always seem to be lacking. Also character creation has been a big part of my enjoyment of gaming, and you usually don't get that from video games. Some games have the character creation that I love, like Oblivion and Fallout 3, but they don't have the any multiplayer, which is kind of important to me. About the only games that seem to contain the aspects that I enjoy are MMORPGs, but I have my problems with them, I can't justify monthly subscriptions for games that I don't play regularly. I've really been considering DAO, but I'm worried that I'll feel the same about it as I did about Fallout 3, and stop playing it after about 4 hours due to sheer frustration.
