Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I just picked up a Nook and now I need to start loading it up. Satire, fantasy, and sci fi are my overall preferred genres. Books China related are good too.
Books/Authors I like:
Neil Gaiman, particularly Neverwhere
Everything by Pratchett
Almost everything by Iain M. Banks
Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell
Song of Ice and Fire
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
The Elephant and the Dragon
If that woman's cleavedge made one more person pick the game up off the shelf, it was a net positive for microprose. And to be blunt, if taking her top off could have increased sales enough to get a sequel, I'd endorse it 100000% because I like playing great games.
