Given that alot of us are past 30 with partner, kids and work commitments squeezing in time to play Oblivion on the XBOX is damn near impossible.


You just have got to get the wife into gaming.  =)

My husband and I love to find stuff we can play together, played through the basic NWN game last year and will probably get the diamond edition (or whatever it's called) one of these days and play through some expansions.  Right now we're playing "City of Heroes", by my choice, just because I needed something NOT in the fantasy stereotype for awhile.  =)

We play for awhile most nights after the kidlet goes to bed, except on Saturday (Poker Night!)

Lol yeah, got a big group we play with every week basically without fail, we're trying to "recruit" some of our poker friends to join us in our geekly pursuits since we don't have a regular gaming group for D&D or the like.

Thanks for the advice.  So how do both of you play NWN at the same time?  Two PCs?

In my case I think I am going to have to find a way of breaking her into games first.  Think of getting a Wii with its unique controllers which might interest her.

At the moment I am trying to convince her it is OK for her to go to bed alone so I can stay up and play games  :wink:

D&D flipper, on ebay.fr.
Link

This guy live very closed to me, but I really doubt that my girlfriend will appreciate that new item.
But with that item, I become a 'big gun'  :wink: ... maybe.

Is that the same flipper you have got in the US?
Have a great superbowl, folks.

So I guess that would definitely make you a big gun or even a grandmaster  Maybe even a grandmaster at D&D pinball! :lol:

Just walked past the American Chamber of Commerce having a superbowl party at Crown Casino.   All I could hear was loud American voices yelling and screaming.  Somethings never change  :lol:

Only 1 point off on both scores from a contest at work, so not sure if I'll win or not :)

I think it is a real shame that the much maligned Indy defense was not awarded the MVP. They deserved it. They played one the most dominating games I have seen in recent years.

Look at the time of possession: The Indy offense was on the field roughly 20 minutes to 10 in the first half. Not because the offense took a long time to score, they simply got the ball so often and ‘da bears' could not get past the defense. Overall, the Indy offensxe was on the field 38 minutes to ‘da bears' 22 minutes. Sure offensive ball control accounts for SOME of that disparity, but face it Indy's defense simply kept 'da bears' off balance the whole game.

What ‘da bears' had like 3 first downs the entire first half, and one of those was on that 52 yard run by the RB in the first quarter?

Speaking of that 'da bears' running back Thomas Jones ran for 112 yards, the first back to break the 100-yard barrier on the Colts in the postseason, but much of that was on a 52-yard run that set up the Bears' second touchdown.

‘da bears' offense had roughly 250 yards of offense total. ‘Da bears' best play was the first play of the game, after that it went downhill and picked up speed as it did. By the second quarter the game was basically over. The close score was the only thing in question. Could Indy keep from loosing it? Because ‘da bears' most certainly could not win it.

IMO: the only reason that Peyton won the MVP is that no single defensive player could be singled out from the team effort. The whole Indy defense as a team was dominating. The entire defense of Indy should have won the MVP award.

Not the first time that's happened in a SB though.

BTW: Can any of you name the only MVP of a super bowl to play for the loosing team?

Dallas Cowboy linebacker Chuck Howley was the first defensive player named Super Bowl MVP in Super Bowl V. And he is the ONLY player who has won Super Bowl MVP while playing on the losing team. He intercepted two passes and recovered a fumble, but the Cowboys lost 16-13 to the Baltimore Colts.

Now can you name all of the players who have won as Co-MVP's of a SB?
