  1. Well Bryan, you obviously didn't get the Super Ultra Mega Deluxe Limited Edition Pre-Order Leather Bound Ultimate Set. They won't eat your existing RPG library, and don't contain the nanobots programed to seek out and destroy all non-WotC miniatures. Totally worth the extra $700.

  2. Between clerics and warlords, bards are almost obsolete, although I do hope they get included in the PHB2. They have a chance to completely rework the class and make them truly unique. If they choose to include them, I'll be VERY interested in seeing what builds they choose for them.

     

    I have the core boxed set, and the more I read, the more I like. Not necessarily as a replacement for 3.5, but in addition to. The same way I can have CoC or AFMBE on my bookshelf without invalidating my 3.5 books.

  3. I've already said it, but that is some good work, considering how long you've been out of the hobby, and the quality of supplies you were working with. The pictures don't do them justice, but we'll get you hooked up with a decent photo setup.

  4. I haven't painted since Reapercon. I've got all this stuff I learned in class, and have yet to try any of it. For me, it's been excitement over a possible new job/move got me too excited and my ADD kicked in so I didn't want to sit down and paint, so I turned to PC gaming (didn't hurt that my wife just got a laptop about that time, so the very gaming capable desktop was available for me whenever I wanted it) and got hooked on a couple games. Its kinda a cycle for me, painting, PC/Wii, painting, PC/Wii... Although I have a contest entry due in less than 20 days, so next week will see some productive painting.

     

    As for feeling bad, I do. But the same goes for when I'm painting. I think about some new PC game that came out that looks amazing that I'm not playing. Not to mention the stack of books on the shelf saying "Chris, you bought me three years ago, get around to reading me you lazy %^#!" Although that's what I've been using my time on the bus for.

  5. Funny, but only somewhat relevant. Gaming has a social aspect that's almost required, whereas cooking can be done alone.

     

    I don't see how the fact that gaming is social changes anything.

     

    If one person can just change rule x to y, than a group of 5 people can change x to y. How does having multiple people change the fact that you're just changing rule x to y?

     

    :unsure:

  6. I am really wanting DDR for the Wii, just on the assumption that the dance pads will be wireless.

     

    Sorry, they have cords and plug into the Gamecube controller ports on the side. At least the one that came with Hottest Party did, and it's a Konami brand pad. Maybe the 3rd party one's might have some wireless options, but I wouldn't count on it.

     

    It's still really fun, and the addition of the hand moves creates a whole new thing you gotta keep track of, but can be turned off if you want a little more old school experience.

     

    It has You Spin Me Right Round, which I'm actually hearing from the living room as I type this, and it is an amazingly fun track. I'm gonna go play... ::D:

     

    "You spin me right round baby, right round, like a record baby, right round, round round..."

  7. Last night the wife and I did some DDR (we just got Hottest Party for the Wii), and I dropped my calorie intake VASTLY yesterday. Today I've taken my coffee black, and am slamming water to keep me from getting snackish.

     

    I've noticed that DDR really doesn't feel like exercise at all. If only they had a DDR with a more Guitar Hero song list... We just need a 2nd pad so we can both go at the same time and be competitive rather than switching off every couple songs.

     

    EDIT:

     

    Bryan, next time we see you, where/whenever that is, we'll bring DDR, and it's on. ::):

  8. Typical mini: $7.00

    Cost for paint and materials: $0.50 (That's probably a bit high)

     

    Total cost: $7.50

     

    Time to paint: 20 hours

     

    $7.50/20= $0.38 per entertainment hour.

     

    OR

     

    A bunch of figs for either Warlord or use in D&D, lets say a group of 9 Warlord figs: $39.99

     

    Time to paint: ~7 hours

     

    $39.99/7= $5.71

     

    Now let's estimate there are at least 50 hours they'll get used for gaming, plus the 7 for painting them...

    $39.99/57=$0.70

     

    Ok, so show quality painters, you have the cheaper method ::P:

    Still though, even if you rush, it's not a bad deal at all.
