awesome headline.

Boo is my favorite miniature giant space hamster EVAR.
 
2013-04-29 07:14:21 PM
It rolls down stairs, alone or in pairs, rolls over the neighbor's dog.

Well since the actual Boo has already been covered, I'll cover the most recent shout-out to him:

The hard part is getting them to stand still while you're rolling a 16-pound ball at them.

If you have Tali in your party and you use her combat drone she'll occasionally say "Go for the optics Chatika!"

Did she also patent other hamster related games of skill, maybe bocce or billiards?

Good job, my first headline was making fun of the Indy Colts, so you're off to a better start than I. I never actually completed the game, I don't remember what level I ever got to either.

/because the game came out ages ago
//play KOTOR if you haven't yet. That is, if you're a Star Wars fan.

You can download both games, optimized for modern pc's at gog.com for $9.99 each (as well as NWN, Planescape: Torment, Icewind Dale etc.)

That's what I did, even though I already owned them.  Then followed their advice here to install / run BGT.  That way you play the whole thing as one seamless story.  It is still as good as you remember.  Who cares about graphics when you get this much good content?

/Alternatively, I guess you could shell out the money for the enhanced edition, which has even more new content...
 
2013-04-29 09:33:46 PM
In case anyone is interested (other than me), the patent application is here. And the application appears to have been allowed after a huge amendment defining the game board.

Brakefornobody: glad Minsc ended up with Aerie.  Face it, Dynaheir was a biatch.


And Aerie wasn't? "Oh, I  used to have wings." Well let me throw you off the nearest farking cliff. Maybe they'll grow back before you hit the ground. I hope they don't.

My wife and I named a cat Boo. We were playing Balders gate at the time.
It is such a blast that this is a FARK meme.

I'm getting a kick, I was playing BG 1 enhanced edition an hour ago.  Didn't pick up Minsc this time around though I did free his witch. I'm waiting for BG2 enhanced, I usually have Minsc and go for that talking  2 handed sword in the sewers pretty much right off.  Great headline subby I started laughing the second I saw it.
 
2013-04-30 12:35:38 AM
I've got nothing to say about hamster bowling, but, given my handle, felt an obligation to weigh in and congratulate the submitter.  Also, Minsc's intelligence is apparently insufficient to use protection scrolls.  The strong implication is that he cannot read.  This amuses me more than it should.  Still, Minsc (like most good NPCs) is lame.

As a younger lass I sank over 300 hours into Baldurs Gate, BG2, Icewind Dale, and IWD2. The writing was fabulous. 3D gaming is awesome, but I did looooove me some of that Infinity Engine.

Fun fact: The voice of Minsc is the same guy who does Chef Pisgetti from the Curious George cartoons.. He uses the same accent too. :)

I, too, just started replaying through it, again.  Fantastic game, and you can get it, BG2, Icewind Dale, and Planescape Torment on a single disc for about $10.  I won't have to but another game for months.

It's Jim Cummings.  He does everything, and has been in the voice business since Ducktales and Transformers...generation 1 (well, before, but those are the first things I recognized)

You should get Stephen Fry as centre forward, given how good a shot he is with hamster balls.

Our dog's name is Boo, and this is one of 5 or 6 different references that went into that name (others include To Kill a Mockingbird, Monsters Inc, and a song by Lobo)
