    Hero-U : Rogue to Redemption (by the makers of Quest for Glory games)

    I am absolutely backing this. Quest For Glory was my favorite Sierra series and the biggest reason for that had nothing to do with graphics or gameplay mechanics - it was about the over-arching story, the writing, and the character development and interactions. That's what makes this appealing...

    How often do you change your avatar?

    I don't think I've ever changed an avatar for any given site once I've chosen one other than whatever the 'default' is. I think my reason is probably...I'm just lazy like that? Dunno.

    Which game would you least like to find yourself in?

    Oregon Trail. Demons, I can handle. Measles, Dysentery, Typhoid, Cholera, broken legs, dying oxen...nope, don't think I have it in me to get through all those.

    What was your favorite Power Ranger series?

    My favorite? The 1975 Chinese movie "The Super Inframan," known for being the first Chinese 'superhero' movie, and also a film which just might have been a LITTLE bit of an influence on the entire Power Rangers franchise...trailer and clip below: ...anybody else notice a passing...

    The most scared you've ever been?

    The time I went down to my basement recording area to do some guitar practice, turned on my amp, and a few seconds later heard distorted, creepy voices coming out of the amp...this was right after seeing an ad for the (really bad) "White Noise" movie... ...anyway I eventually figured out that...

    Quick! You're hiring Micheal Bay to sabotage a beloved franchise!

    The "Finding Bigfoot" series on Animal Planet. "Hi, I'm Matt Moneymaker, and today Bobo and I are gonna go huntin' for 'squatches...WITH MISSILES!"

    Recommend me some Superhero Movies!

    Hellboy and Hellboy II: The Golden Army Definitely a different sort of "superhero" franchise but the movies do qualify. Similarly, the first two Blade movies were pretty badass as well (gee, you get the feeling from these recommendations that I like Guillermo del Toro?) - again, they're...

    Poll: Hatred Towards Roleplaying

    Sure...been playing tabletop RPG's for over 30 years, after all, so I got used to 'getting into' whatever character I was playing. As for video games, did/do that all the time in Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim.

    Escape to the Movies: Avengers

    You know, they probably could've saved themselves a whole lot of trouble with that whole "can't get through the pure-energy force field surrounding the device" problem and prevented the portal from opening in the first place if one of them had just brought along a package of Twinkies. As the...

    What Was What in Avengers

    There is indeed a second post-credits scene. But it's not a teaser or any sort of plot-advancer, it's just a for-laughs stinger, apparently shot on video, not "film." Also,

    Never forget your first...

    Adventure, a.k.a. Colossal Cave Adventure, on my Black Apple ][ (my parents were both in the educational field so I was able to get one of the only-sold-to-school Bell & Howell models) back in 1979. Do I wish it were something different? Hell no! It was a great brain-tester, required a lot...

    Ridiculously unfair stuff in multiplayer

    ...and this is why I always play Dark Souls and Demons Souls offline. Because I really do not need the "helpful" messages people leave and I can handle the bosses without assistance from Blue Phantoms...but I really do not enjoy being gang-tackled by one Black Phantom invading after another...

    If you could make your own spin off title in a game franchise

    While I normally avoid MMORPG's, I think I would really like to see one set in the setting of Planescape:Torment. Although somehow actually implementing such a thing in a setting where the beliefs of a character can affect reality would most likely lead to nothing but utter chaos...

    Escapists: What is your definition of "Fun"?

    With all due credit to Mr. Busey...Finally Understanding Nothing. But seriously, if it's an activity I remember as being something I enjoyed and would like to do again at some point, I probably would consider that "fun."

    Moments in Games that Made you Cry

    Never really got to that point, but I think the closest I ever got was Toby's self-sacrifice in Quest For Glory: Shadows Of Darkness. Of course that was 18 years ago and I've since become completely inured to such... ...aah, damnit. *sniffles*
