    I haven't finished the book, but it comes across to me like a cheap knockoff of James Clavell's "What is best in life? ASIAN. JAPANESE, CHINESE, ANYTHING ASIAN. Tremble in awe, ignorant Western...

    I struggle to articulate the hate - and I do mean hate - I'm feeling for The Wise Man's Fear. I'm actually seriously considering not buying Numenera solely because Patrick Rothfuss is writing for it,...

    Quoting because this cannot be repeated enough. Resident Evil 6 is good. No, it is nothing like the first few games in the series: it's dumb, it's loud, it's kinda easy on normal difficulty, it's...
