Hey all, Crisco here. I had almost the entirety of last week off and I have only two days of work this week, so I am living the viva loca right now (don't hate me, I am starting a new job the first week in December, so my happy times will be short lived...I promise!!).
Anyway, with all this free time, I have been gaming up a storm. My main time sinks have been Assassin's Creed IV, Knack, BF 4, NFS Rivals and some other stuff here and there. TOO MANY GAAAAAAMES
What have ya'll been playing? For those of you sitting with shiny new consoles, how are they? What do they look like? What do they sound like? What do they taste like?
Being a madman who cares not that his wallet gently weeps, I actually dove in on both the new consoles. So, perhaps a direct comparison is in order in a separate post to be posted at a later date like Thursday around noon-ish (shameless plug is shameless...)?
Anyway, for those not interested in talking about current games played/new consoles, I have another question for you TAY-folk. This week, Family Guy apparently killed off a character (I don't watch the show, but it raised a media firestorm, so I took notice). Apparently, it was a pretty major character and it threw fans for quite the loop. SO...
What character deaths threw you for a loop over the years? Gaming, tv, movies, books, etc. Everything is allowed.
NOTE: OBVIOUSLY, THERE IS A RISK FOR SPOILERS HERE. SO, ANYONE WHO CHOOSES TO DO THIS TOPIC NEEDS TO HAVE "SPOILERS FOR *INSERT THING*" IN THE FIRST LINE AND THEN A FEW DROPPED LINES BEFORE THE SPOILER. So, it would look like this:
SPOILERS FOR CRISCO'S WORST NIGHTMARE:
HE IS SECRETLY TERRIFIED OF BEING BURIED ALIVE.
And if you choose to discuss none of these things, then tell me what Thanksgiving food you dislike most. I know I post things about pie a lot, but I actually rarely eat pie even at Thanksgiving. I like the idea of pie, but the reality of it leaves me sad :(
Or don't. This forum be open, so ye can talk about whatever ye desires.
