    It's not a bad book. The writing manages to drag you in and it does what it sets out to do- it tells a story awfully well. My only gripe with it is that it's terribly overrated, and it does have faults. Like I said though, it's not bad. Most people enjoy it.

    Best thing about medieval history: Since everyone had pretty much the same names, they all get awesome descriptors as part of the name they're remembered by. Like instead of Edward son of Edward II, he's Edward, The Black Prince. Or like instead of Charles VI he's Charles the Mad. Or instead of Louis XIII (a problem with French kings because they pretty much all were named either Louis or Charles) Louis the Chaste (or gay depending on who you believe.) Or, even more awesome, ridiculous stuff like Charles the Bald, or Ivan the Ignorant (who was severely mentally handicapped btw.)

    I see. Well, I couldn't follow the first chapter, but the second is better. Let's hope I can make through this.

    The lack of this may be why the twenty-first century sucks.

    IDK, so many parents are naming their sons stuff that rhymes with Aiden now that we may start seeing Brayden the Tall and Jayden the Hairy or whatever. REVIVAL!

    Do you have a time-frame so I know when I have to go down to the smelly lobby to download it? Because it smells awful down there and I really don't want to be there that long.
    BUT I NEED IT.

    I just watched The Shining. Jack Nicholson is creepy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

    The one OST you released is amazing. Will the soundtrack be available at some point or will we have to put on big girl panties and play the levels to hear the music?

    My personal favorites are Louis II the Stammerer, Louis I the Debonair, Athelred the Unready, and Louis the Universal Spider

    I wasn't a big fan, but I do like the characters... and I'm reading Thus Spake Zarathustra, so I'm not sure I'm who you should come to about these kinds of questions.

    To Kill a Mockingbird as a book is a bit overrated in my opinion. It's not bad, though. I actually enjoyed it. However, I really don't think it's as good as teachers make it out to be.

    It's a shame that none of the moderators' witty closing posts are shown in that, but I think I got enough entertainment from reading some of the posts in there already.

    Dear god. Is this only on the Xbox version? I would assume it is, but I don't actually know, so.

    There's still L4D2. >-< I mean L4D is working on PC, but on xbox it's pretty screwed.

    I heard they're trying to fix the issues though, but who knows. I just **** my pants at Errors coming after me though hahaha.

    I had that happen on L4D2.
    However I blame the fact that my friend, who was hosting, decided to download a sword mod in the middle of our campaign, so two out of the three of us just saw ERROR instead of the Katana. Still, it was pretty hilarious, watching a giant ERROR run down a zombie-infested hallway.

    Yes we were playing as Raptors.

    Lol, oh on PC then.

    Yeah here on xbox, EVERY dedicated server game has the errors for every common.
    It happened ever since the Cold Stream DLC came out.

    Too bad my voice doesn't pick up in the video.. I was all "HAHAHAHAHAHA WTFFFFFFFF"

    Btw I need to start playing on PC.. ugh so many cool things. But I love my small L4D crowd on xbawkz. T_____T

    Amusing how this happens when they release the DLC for probably the worst official map in the entire series thus far. I mean, new Cold Stream is a little better, but still.

    PC is totally worth it for some of the new maps you can get.

    There are some extremely well-done ones that are even better than the official maps.

    First few chapters are a bore, but it picks up after that. Like a few others said, it's overrated, but I still found it to be a good book.

    Oh, the Shining with a laugh track, seen that on Youtube.

    Also reminds me of the thing that TMC(?) did, where they showed trailers for Forrest Gump as a horror film, or some other genre too.
