Lardheppus, I'm thinking about going to Woodman's today....and as for gaming, my kids are trying to get me to play Runescape. Just registered my username yesterday.
I thought you were banned from Woodman's after the asparagus incident.
I haven't tried Runescape. If I do try another RPG, it'll probably be Progress Quest. Progress Quest promises to eliminate all the drudgery of doing the same run over and over for experience, gold and items. It's sure to revolutionize the RPG industry.
My nephew got me started playing Runescape a couple of years ago and I'm not sure I'll ever forgive him. They recently updated the graphics and you can now play in full screen, which looks much better, but rs is still a game of drudgery... you're rewarded for being bored, essentially. Repetitive play to earn money or levels and literally hundreds of hours just to max out a single skill. Embarrassingly, I have three skill capes and a quest cape.
On the plus side, rs offers a multitude of skills to train, each one taking something just sort of forever to max out. There are no classes in Runescape, so if you get bored of ranging, you can fight with melee or magic anytime you want. And, if you choose not to fight at all, that's ok too. You can try your hand at farming, or herblore (making potions), thieving, fishing, cooking, woodcutting, fletching and many more.
It's addictive, but it rarely wows you (no pun intended).
