#2990717 Looking for some new Sci/Fi or Fantasy novels.

Posted by PanthersFanNY on 30 September 2014 - 01:48 PM

I have read Red Country which I really liked because it had one of my favorite character's story continued. I loved that book. It reads more like a western than fantasy, but it works for that character.

I am currently reading The Heroes. I was really excited about it because it has Black Dow and Dog Man, but I got distracted with some other books and graphic novels and am trying to get back into it. I have read half that book.

I have Best Served Cold but haven't read it yet. It is in the docket though.

I loved Logen Ninefingers and Glotka. Two of my favorite book characters of all time. Some people didn't like the ending, but I actually liked it as it was true to the characters in the book.

Spoiler


Bayaz was an interesting character and because you never got a POV chapter you never knew what he was thinking. Luthar grows on you as you get deeper into the story and his character develops.

And there are a ton of interesting side characters throughout the books. Some who become major characters in the standalone books

Just a good read IMO

He also said he is going to eventually release a new trilogy set in this world, but he hasn't said when or how many, if any, of the old characters will be major players in the new books.

It will be a while though because he plans on writing all three books before releasing the first one.

Glad u liked it though.

Who were your favorite characters?

 

My favorite character ended up being Jezal, who I straight up hated at the beginning. His arc was probably my favorite one.

Thoughts on Logen:

Black dow:

Bayaz:

Glokta:

I think I'll definitely read the other stuff he's written and probably his next trilogy set in that world. I hope that he does more with Yoru Sulfur, who seems like he could be a fun character to read about. An eater who doesn't follow Khalul who likes to joke around, I'd read that for sure.




#2987601 Shula will be gone after this year.

Posted by PanthersFanNY on 29 September 2014 - 09:28 AM

Shula is average to below average in every single offensive category since his hire as OC. He should be fired. 

 

The argument that the offensive line is terrible so it's not Shula's fault isn't a good one. They are awful, but other teams have similarly bad offensive lines and yet they can put up points. Even in 2013 when the offensive line wasn't terrible, Shula still ran a below average offense. That argument is a crutch and it can't mask how inept Shula actually is as an OC.

 

The team has numerous issues, but IMO Shula is one of the biggest.

It's funny that none of us were surprised by it, even though it turned out to be not true.

I started the First Law series after your recommendation and am about half way through the first book. I'm liking it a lot so far. I'm looking forward to getting further into it to find out some back stories of characters, Fenris the Feared is badass.




#2792857 Blake Griffin believes that Earth is 6,000 years old

Lol wut?

I'd be interested in hearing why you believe in hell being it isn't mentioned once in the bible.



 

 

I've been trying to avoid posting in this toxic thread, but I just had to respond to this post.

 

Are you saying that the actual word "Hell" is not in the bible or that the place of "Hell" is not mentioned at all in the Bible?

I thought this episode was good. I'm so glad that they FINALLY had an Oberyn scene where he wasn't banging something and also mentioned his daughters. I also loved his line "I can't say that name without getting sad, and after I get sad... I get angry."




#2759286 Oklahoma's Botched Execution

Posted by PanthersFanNY on 02 May 2014 - 12:08 PM

Fug that, if these people have been convicted and it is without a dought them that did it then kill them rough. What's cruel and unusual can be dissected one way or another. If he or she is a murder/rapist the let him/her die a horrible painful death, I see nothing cruel or unusual about sending a diving terrible person to a terrible death.

#2757824 Oklahoma's Botched Execution

Posted by PanthersFanNY on 01 May 2014 - 07:18 AM

I don't think the argument here is whether or not people feel empathy for the murderer, it's whether or not what happened can be construed as cruel and unusual punishment. That's specifically prohibited in the Constitution. The Constitution doesn't prohibit cruel and unusual punishments except in the cases of rape and murder, it prohibits all cruel and unusual punishment. It's pretty obvious that what happened in the case is cruel and unusual, whether or not I think the convicted man deserved it or not.

 

If the death penalty is going to continue, the government offices carrying out the sentences need to find a better way to do it besides buying whatever lethal combination of drugs they can find and hoping for the best.

gonna get it, but when it's not $60

 

I'd be willing to bet you can get a used copy now, or soon, at any local game shop because of the short length and limited replay value.




#2656457 The Last of Us

Posted by PanthersFanNY on 18 February 2014 - 09:06 AM

Has anyone else played the DLC they just released for this, The Last of Us: Left Behind?

 

I finished it yesterday. It's a pretty steep $15 for only 2 hours or so of game play, but it was the same quality of the original game so I think it was worth it. I found it pretty challenging and the story was great. You only play as Ellie and it flips back and forth between two different timelines, one before the original game and one when Ellie was saving Joel after he got impaled during their escape from the University of Colorado. 

 

Worth it IMO, but it really only adds a couple hours to the story without much else. They've said it's their last planned single player DLC.




#2623467 Income Taxes!

Posted by PanthersFanNY on 19 January 2014 - 09:37 PM

You don't get more money either way.

 

If you get a big refund, then you've basically just allowed the government to hold onto your money throughout the year. If you don't get a big refund, it just means you got a little more money in your paycheck throughout the year because less income tax is withheld from it.
