Nov 5th 2011 7:30PM I'm surprised by the lack of Uncharted love. Or were you guys like me and got so hooked you finished the single player in a couple days?

Nov 13th 2010 10:58PM I just finished reading The Shattering and found to my dismay that events from Stormrage are mentioned sporadically throughout that novel. I began thinking that I might have to force myself to read that book, an unpleasant thought considering Knaak's writing drives me up a wall.
And then I check WoW Insider for the first time in a very long time (I've been playing uber casually for the past few months) and what do I find? A nice little summary of the book for me.
I love you guys.

Read the New Moon one too.
Apr 1st 2010 10:22AM I...ah...eh...uh...
Well, there goes my brain.
...and my ears. Thanks for that video, really, it's cool, I always wanted to know what it felt like to put an ice pick through my ear drum.
Any guesses for the next theme? My bet's on Pokemon.
*goes back to playing her ME2 Vanguard, because biotic charge really is pretty awesome*

...Stop looking at me like that.
Feb 23rd 2010 8:34PM I actually just read Karpyshyn's Mass Effect novels last week. I thought they were enjoyable enough--nothing mind-blowing but definitely a fun read for fans of the games, and certainly better than Knaak's books. I really ought to finish Dragon Age, but first I'd have to put down ME 2--I just started my third ME run that I'll probably blast through just so I can import it to the second game. I have discovered that I am a horrible Adept--but I'm horrible at playing casters in WoW, so I don't know why I'm surprised. Singularity is awesome though.
Feb 23rd 2010 3:21PM "...and the language Richard Knaak uses, archaic and overwrought, often strikes me as trying too hard. He tries to be poetic, but it actually comes across quite silly."
This, this, a thousand times this. There are some authors that can spend pages describing trees or rocks or something and you don't really mind, because the writing is beautiful enough to warrant the halt in narrative. Knaak on the other hand--I don't know, there's just something I absolutely cannot stand about his writing style. It's like reading bad fanfiction.
I've read both Day and Night of the Dragon, but the Ancients trilogy is sitting on my desk collecting dust--I'm sure I'll read it someday when the power goes out and I'm bored out of my skull, but that's probably it. I might read this just because I play a druid, but going from the excellent Arthas novel to more Knaak will be...painful.
