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!
So I started Lies of Locke Lamora last night and just now finished it and goddamn I enjoyed that book. Already have the sequel on my Kindle and about to start it.
having done the exact same thing as you a few months ago, you might want to wait a bit. the second book is still enjoyable but is different enough that it's not as satisfying to careen into it when you're super hyped off the ending of the first one
Nah, I'm halfway through the second book now and it's still just as awesome
I gave myself a hernia lifting weights when I was 14, and I wasn't even trying that hard. I think that part of my body is just rubbish because I got another one on the other side just working retail a few years ago. That one still hurts if I do too much, possibly because I wasn't careful enough giving myself time to heal, or possibly because I also had a hernia on that side when I was 2.
The lesson is never do any physical activity.
Seriously, every time I do any physical activity like get out of bed or get out of a chair or move any part of my body whatsoever I seem to pull muscles and stuff. I think ceasing all movement is the only solution.
I always thought hocus pocus was the basis for that trio of sisters in final fantasy 4 but apparently that's not the case.
Them, the huge doll (Calcobrena?), and the demon wall were the hardest parts of the game for me as a child. Every time I got to those parts of the game I would be all, "fuck" and get stomped into the ground multiple times.
