We've been on a bit of a spree lately, and not all of these are new, but new to us.

Dread Curse - This one was a huge hit. Plays 3 - 8 at around 30 minutes. Everyone is a pirate, whose rank ranges from Captain to Cabin Boy. The goal is to amass the most treasure at the end of the game. Being pirates, however, means stealing from each other and using a variety of dirty, underhanded tricks to amass that coin. Beware the "Black Spot", as it will lose you the game if you can't get rid of it.

Survive: Escape from Atlantis - The island is sinking, and everyone must flee for safety. There are not enough boats, whales in the distance, sharks are circling and holy crap! Is that a freaking sea monster? We all loved this one, a great reprint of a classic game 2-4, up to 6 with the expansion.

Keyflower - my new favorite euro game. Every season the boats bring new workers. You send them out to build on tracts of land, work to generate resources or even be the first to greet the boats. Between the seasons you assemble your village. Plays quick and has a surprising amount of player interaction. 2 - 6 players, and works at every player count.

Splendor - a great little game. You grab gems to purchase cards, in order to build an economic engine. With the right cards you can get a visit from a noble. First to 15 points wins. Plays best with 3 or 4, at 2 players we would rather play Jaipur (we enjoy the theme).

Robinson Crusoe - you must survive on an island and complete your objective, which ranges from resource gathering to exorcising the native temples. There is never enough of anything, bad stuff happens constantly and you will fail as often as you succeed, maybe more. Great fun with the right group. It is a board game that feels like an rpg. Plays 1 - 4.

Cheaty Mages - The tournament is starting, a fight among these creatures for the amusement and profit of us wizards who gathered here. Being wizards, we will cheat of course, as much as the judge allows anyway. The wizard with the most coin after 3 rounds is the winner! Plays 3 - 6.

It's gotten to the point, for me, where Russia's Ambassador to the EU, Vladimir Chizhov, has fully committed to becoming Muhammed Saeed al-Sahaf.

I'm having trouble finding abilities that click with the wizard.  My crusader and WD (and before that Barb and Monk) are tearing it up.  What are people using and liking with the wiz?  I'm finding the X abilities to be really crappy and I am constantly out of arcane energy to use R2 abilities.

There was a developer video a couple or so weeks ago that addressed the system changes that are coming with ACU and it discussed the changes in the parkour system in detail. Frankly it's what convinced me to preorder.

It's sucky that the release is being delayed, my 35th wedding anniversary is on the 16th and I doubt my wife will be thrilled with me wanting to spend the day gaming icon_wink

It's your 35th, she won't even know you are home!

I bought a $15 Logitech headset the other day, and it's TERRIBLE. It hums, pops and picks up terribly, even when the mike is practically in my mouth. Is it a technical problem with the headset or a problem with trying to get too cheap of a headset?

So if there are no swing meters and no triple click mechanic, how do you control your basic swing power, angle, etc?

Pull back the right stick, pause and thrust it forward, trying to stay as straight as possible.  You get an indicator after the ball heads into the air about your power and how straight the shot is.

Using the analog stick for a shot is not new, of course, but without the indicators, there's a definite learning curve.  You have to judge your shot based on feel and experience (it helps to see the avatar swinging, too, of course).  Just like in real life (well, except for the avatar bit).   I haven't found it anywhere near as punishing as in real life, though.

Honestly, that seems to be the design focus of the game.  A lot of the design choices seem to be geared towards giving you a real life feel.  Take the aiming I mentioned before.  The fact that you can only adjust your aim in the standard shot view (as opposed to the target view) feels natural.  I imagine some folks coming from previous golf games may find things like that limiting, but it's a bold choice and works for what they're trying to achieve.

Sorry for your loss...  Although I have not had a dog pass for a very long time...Ive been going through a bit of issues with my dogs as well.  One that I just adopted being treated for Heartworms and having tons of breathing issues and another with a GI bleed..Its not looking good right now...   All we can do is try to give and remember the the love that they have given us unconditionally during the time we are blessed with being a part of their lives.   Wishing you the best and knowing that your dog will be waiting for you with loads of love when its your time to leave this world.

I didn't really care for these movies, but I tend to think vampires and werewolves feel pretty dumb in most movies.  The only reason to watch Underworld was Kate Beckinsale.
