"During the packed panel at San Diego Comic-Con, the Saga writer noted that while today, Joss Whedon and George R.R. Martin are considered cultural monsters for killing off beloved characters, death used to be a more common feature of popular fiction. One problem, he believes, is that too many characters live in the hands of corporations and are therefore considered too precious to kill. Vaughn feels that takes away one of the things that makes fiction so valuable."

Without a doubt.
This post follows one a few hours ago about the Heartbleed security failure, and for safety’s sake it repeats information I have added to that post as an update.
Time to change tumblr passwords everyone.
Might & Magic:Clash of Heroes (Xbox)
Age of Empires 2 HD (PC)
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons (Xbox)
Yes, I’m still playing Skyrim that I started in December. I’m starting to get bogged down in the minutiae of selling/organizing inventory, which is taking the fun out of it. I’ve taken a bit of a break to think about how I can better enjoy the game and try to let go of playing a merchant and inventory simulation.
Broke down and bought Aoe2 HD when it hit $4.99. I’m an Age of Mythology gal, so I decided to give AoE a try. Doesn’t have the charm of AoM for me but still a good game and no regrets in the purchase.
Still working my way through the Might & Magic campaigns. I’m on the 4th, Sheogh, and still love it when I’m needing a relaxing game.
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons was fantastic. Got it during an xbox sale for under $5. Even by the end I was still struggling a little with the unique left and right stick controls, but that was part of the challenge, and the story was sad and lovely.
Trine 2 (PC)
Sleeping Dogs (Xbox)
Skyrim Legendary Edition (Xbox)
Civilization V (PC)
Elder Sign: Omens (Android)
Trine 2 (co-op with Tony) was huge fun and a gorgeous game.
I got civ 5 in the Steam fall sale and I’m about 12 hours in and still in my first game. Not loving that I can’t stack units, makes maneuvering troops super awkward.
I got Skyrim with all the dlc for Xmas and couldn’t resist starting it immediately since I’d been waiting 2 years to try it. I’m playing as a battle mage (mage in heavy armor with a one-handed sword). First time playing TES not as a thief/archer.
Xbox games with gold free title Sleeping Dogs won me over immediately, so I’m mostly playing this when I’m taking a break from Skyrim.
I had some Play Store credit to burn from the Kit Kat promo and decided on a tabletop game, Elder Sign: Omens. It took me a bit to get the hang of it having not played the physical version, but it has a lot of replay value and was a good buy.
Alan Wake (Xbox) - Just started yesterday and I’ll have to take it slow; seems that in my old age each jump scare in a horror game takes an hour off my life. I’m already stressed about running out of flashlight batteries.
Civilization V (PC) - Finally got it this week and, par for the course, spent 6 straight hours on my first tutorial play.
Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes (Xbox) - Moon and I got this a couple weeks ago free with Xbox gold. We jumped in to a 1v1 battle and had no idea what was going on (turns out the campaign mode acts as a game tutorial) but finally caught on after an hour or so. Glad we gave this a chance, it filled a void in what is really one of my favorite game types lately (casual/puzzle/card/board game type games).
Papers Please (PC) - This game is weird, engaging, and pretty damn difficult. I keep killing my family and getting fired from my job. It’s a bit like FTL in that way, except you can restart from a specific day’s save without always going back to day one. I’m interested in seeing how the game plays out if I ever make it to the end. So many details to keep up with.
Trine 2 co-op (PC)
Dragon Age: Origins (Xbox)
Dragon Age Origins has taken up the last 3 months for me on Xbox. I have about 100 hours in it and am getting close to finishing. Time to head to the Landsmeet soon.
Playing Trine 2 with Moon. Fun game and really pretty and interesting environment. I’m playing the wizard and Moon the hunter. We decided to play Trine while take a break from Terraria since we’ll be starting a brand new world once the October 1st patch releases.
