Stargate DVD mystery
For Christmas, the Marquis bought me Season 2 of Stargate SG-1 on DVD in a box set. There are 6 DVDs numbered 2 to 7. Why is this? Is the set incomplete? Are the people who labelled the DVDs discalculaeic? Or do they just feel like mucking around with people's brains...

Can someone shed some light on this? gayalondiel? sally_maria?

Ah, the playstation! I have one of those, mostly used for Final Fantasy and similar RPGs (although I used to have Time Crisis for when I was really pissed off, but the gun broke. To be fair, I was about fourteen at the time!).

Black and White is a game where you have a tribe of people, and you rule them as a God by means of a giant creature that does your bidding. You can play as good or evil, and the gameplay differs depending on which path you choose. It's a bit like playing Civilisations but with a monster to do your will.

As you may imagine, I get a bit Goa'uldy when I play...

Yes, I can see the appeal of Goa'uldyness... I remember now: I have heard of Black and White!

My favourite games are things like Myst and Riven which are all about solving puzzles and exploring an interactive landscape. Unfortunately those sorts of game are in short supply. ;-)

*sigh* I spent half my adolescence playing Riven, there were half a dozen of us playing it more or less concurrently in our social circle and we used to go on for hours about it.

Me? nerd? you must be joking

When I discovered Myst etc, I was completely hooked. It brought out all my obsessive qualities. Unfortunately my only friend who played those games had already finished them, so she just smugly observed my progress. ;-)

I'd really like to find out more about the whole background story to Atrus and his strange world...

Oh, don't get me started...

Actually, do. I'd much rather wander in the realms of Myst than minute the CIG meeting this afternoon... it's going to go on forever *whimpers*

I have just come back from a subject board - which was quite boring.

Did you know there was an Atrus novel? I haven't read it, but apparently it exists!

I didn't know that! I shall have to look that up...

*loves the increasing tinyness of the comments*

Me too. I wonder what happens when the space gets smaller than our icons...

Maybe we shall get squished, or maybe taller and thinner.

Not that you need to be taller and thinner, but I could do with it!

Hm! It looks as if it is stretching the display area sideways instead...

And yes, I do NOT need to be taller and thinner. I'd have to buy and extra long bed then.


Hm! It looks as if it is stretching the display area sideways instead...

Boring, isn't it? Although sensible, I suppose.

I think we'd have to buy you an extra long house, pet, unless you wanted to feel like Gandalf in Bag End...

and btw, how cool is your icon?!

and btw, how cool is your icon?!
Why, thank you! I am particularly fond of that one. It's a portrait of Bartholomew, one of my dragons. (Well, technically it's an image of one of his relatives, as I don't yet have a photo of the actual Bartholomew...
