And I'm only getting one of those and I'll have no week left after I get it.

What's the difference between this Amadeus and the Amadeus you usually see for $10 at all your favorite DVD establishments? Hmm. I may have answered the question for myself. A quick search pointed me to this page at Amazon. Super mega deluxe 3 disc set for $50.

I'm also a little intrigued by Harbinger considering I often see it described as Diablo in space. That sounds promising enough.

Anyone see The Quickie ? it's not available through Netflixs yet, never heard of it but it sounded sort of interesting.


Don't know why this happened, but now I can't get the "Dr. Zaius" song out of my head...

"Dr. Zaius, Dr. Zaius!  Dr. Zaius, Dr. Zaius!  Dr. Zaius, Dr. Zaius!  Oooooooooh Dr. Zaius!"

"Docta Zayus, Docta Zayus!"

wait, legacy of ykesha is already coming  out?  wasnt that announced like a month ago?  didnt planes of power come out not too long ago?

i am interested in harbinger.  im a little skeptical as i was under the impression it was to be released a year ago.  heres to hoping its more like diablo and less like prince of qin.  it oughta tide me over until lionheart (please come out soon!)

to elysium, certis and sway:  i have recently become intrigued by EQOA.  yah a lot of the outdoor landscapes look like overtiled noise textured messess. All the characters look better than the original EQ counterparts though some still look bad. however, reading the skill/class/quest descriptions sounds like they've "fixed" EQ.  anyone know of plans to release for PC?  i wont hold my breath since they wont want competition for EQ2.  IMHO this is what EQ2 should be with graphical upgrades.

food for thought re: EQOA-

downtime is lessened; food and drink replenish health and mana on top of decreased downtime; same xp for mob whether grouping or solo (no xp split); no racial or class xp penalties; cant lose a level from death; keep all items on you on death (no corpse recovery); anyone can bind and gate;  coaches to travel from town to town; around 15 class specific quests throughout the levels (completable and soloable at given level); level reqs for weapons and spells (less twinking and pling); warriors, monks and rogues have nearly as many special attacks/skills as casters have spells;
