    Man, this game REALLY benefited from the games they played before it (they quit out of The Dwarves halfway through, then played Tower of Guns). To me it just seems okay. It's certainly polished, but I feel like I've played it before so many times.

    The idea has potential, though. I'm imagining using this mechanic for something like multiple "enemies" (bubble groups) on the screen at once, with strategic weak points and different bubbles that the player can actually choose the order of (like swapping weapons/characters).

    I refuse to accept that Jerry doesn't know how to say Chimera. I assume he pronounced it wrong on purpose.

    Considering their love of pronouncing things wrong on purpose, this is a very safe bet.

    Chimera is a tough one because that's genuinely how people who've never heard it aloud pronounce Chimera

    I also vaguely remember that modern greeks pronounce it a bit different than either the "correct" or "frequently mistaken" English pronunciations. Something to do with the K sound being less hard and blended with a bit more with a breathy H sound.

    And it's not a word that comes up in casual conversation all that often. I said it incorrectly till I was out of college.

    I said "wyvern" incorrectly until last year. And I'm Jerry's age.

    I'm pretty sure I still say wyvern incorrectly. Chimera at least comes from Greek mythology (more popular than Welsh, generally), and sees modern use in genetics.

    Also, Mike ignoring the potential of his booster to make some insane shots made me sad.

    Yeah, it's pronounced 'kai-mera' right? Nyuk nyuk.

    I imagine Jerry has the issue that a lot of readers have: fantasy books rarely come with pronunciation guides.

    Another successful post, thanks to the power of Spacestar Ordering™!

    Y-yes?

    Is that not right, either? Because then I say it wrong too...

    That is the most common pronunciation, yes.

    That's how they said it on the X-Files.

    Oh. I always thought that was the wrong pronunciation. I mean, I use it too because I find it easier, but I always thought the proper one was 'shee-meur-ah', like in this clip (around 0:22).
