Multiple Man, Multiple Man, Multiple Man. As written by Peter David - bonkers power that drove him bonkers.(Although I shamefacedly have to agree with Anne about Gambit.)
I can't sing. Really, my cat has a better voice than I do, so One Night in Bangkok in Chess is my karaoke standby. But Hair, Seven Brides and Rocky Horror were all bubbling under for me.
David and his completely lovely, generous and charming other half, I obviously meant to say.

Casual games are highly refined, and by that I mean that they contain too many E numbers and saturated fats, not that they have upper-class accents and impeccable table manners. If Morrowind is chewing coca leaves while wandering the Peruvian Andes, Angry Birds is selling your cat to a passing stranger for the next rock of crack. Continue reading

But at least when I took any damage myself I had your cleric to help out, Jared. "I'm using my Songbow of Lullabies to cast Aura of I'm Totally Awesome. That's a burst 40, range 2000 and does 35d100 damage to each enemy while boosting allies' armour class by 257 for the rest of the campaign."
Bloody hell - way to make a girl feel wanted! Can I just point out, David, that my last character wasn't nice at all, and were you happy with her? No, you moaned about her axe-to-the-face attitude to diplomacy every time she almost got the entire party killed. Hmph.

I've always assumed I'm a better person than David. That's probably because whenever he plays RPGs, he’s like a cross between Stalin, Ming the Merciless and John Wayne Gacy. Continue reading

Ooh, I haven't read either the David Drake or the Dudley Pope novels, so now I've got two more series lined up - thanks! I'm only just starting In Enemy Hands, and the books have been pretty pacey so far - the space battles are terrific - but it's true some of the exposition is a little glacial, so I may eventually grind to a halt too.

Would I really enjoy a night on the town with Master Chief, Marcus Fenix and 50 Cent? Imagine the Wildean repartee! No, of course you can't. Continue reading

I've spent hundreds of hours in Morrowind and I still haven't finished the main story - although I have watched the hilarious youtube of the guy doing the whole things in 10 minutes. The main story just isn't what the game's about for me. And I totally agree about the therapeutic effect of the Elder Scrolls. I spend several days in a miserable, gloomy winter walking up and down Cyrodiil's sunny waterways harvesting Nirnroot, and it really did cheer me the hell up.

Oh, I'm a Bioware fangirl too - Knights of the Old Republic was the game that got me back into gaming after a very long break. I was mainly talking about the Mass Effect series, which seems to get less and less like an RPG with each iteration.

The dialogue in the Elder Scrolls in general could have used some work. I didn't think anything could make me want to kill Sean Bean, but Oblivion managed it. Which is not to say, PTAshark, that I don't adore Oblivion almost as much as Morrowind. My dream RPG would have a story by Bioware, dialogue by Valve and everything else by Bethesda. Oh, apart from facial animation, which frankly I could probably do better, and I got a grade 2 CSE in art.

I like my RPGs nerdy, probably because I am a nerd. I not only don’t mind but get a cheap thrill out of spending hours in my menu screen agonising about what greave will accessorize best with my katana. Continue reading

Thanks! You definitely should give Rez a go. In these days when so many games are like so many other games, it really stands on its own. Plus, great soundtrack.

Spartacus features John Hannah swearing like one of the Inbetweeners and Lucy Lawless whapping her tits out with heartening regularity. And let me be very clear: this is in no way a criticism. Continue reading

Very interesting - and I think you're completely right about the Cylons. I always thought making *them* the monotheists was one of the show's single most brilliant strokes. It orientalises the humans with their exotic polytheism, and I wish we'd seen more moments like the one where Starbuck prays to her idol of (Artemis? I'm not quite sure) after she's 'killed' Leoben.

I've booked in a friend and an Xbox to play the co-op on Sunday. I am very, very excited.

A good story, every creative writing course tells us, is all about a character changing. But can we really? Continue reading
