  1. Hello, 17th Shard! I'll be brief, direct, and to the point. No one likes an off-topic, meandering first paragraph, right? Why, just the other day I was reading a topic and thinking "Gee, some people just can't seem to hold a thought..." Ahem. Here's the issue: my family and I enjoy viewing various television programs every night. It helps us unwind, relax, and avoid the Almighty-cursed proposition of having a conversation of an evening. (We get along just fine, but no one quite feels like chit-chatting at the end of a day.) Unfortunately, here lately we have completely run out of quality entertainment material, leaving us woefully without a show every evening. We'd appreciate some good recommendations for television shows, if it's not too much trouble. We avoid shows with excessive gore or sexual content, and would prefer clean, family shows. We're fond of Doctor Who, Firefly, Once Upon a Time, and clean sitcoms such as Corner Gas. We've been known to indulge in well-written cartoons like Phineas and Ferb, but they're not generally our first choice. The 17th Shard is a well-versed community when it comes to entertainment, so I look forward to seeing what recommendations you have. Thanks in advance.
  2. By "old-timey game" I mean old games like Majora's Mask, Ocarina of Time, Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire, and older games like that. For me, It'd probably be 3rd generation Pokemon games. In addition, I recently got some GameBoy games for the Virtual Console on the 3DS (Golf, Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages). They're some pretty cool stuff.
  3. On a scale of 1-Brandon, how creative are you feeling today?
  4. I have stuffy sinuses from a cold right now, so I ended up staying up all night re-reading Steelheart. In addition to other things which I might go into later, this part from Chapter 32 intrigues me. I'm putting this in spoilers just in case there are people viewing this who haven't read the book. It makes sense considering the infrastructure we see in Newcago, but it still strikes me as odd--and potentially humorous--that citizens of Newcago have access to a hundred different TV channels dedicated to their amusement. What precisely is shown on these channels? Sitcoms? Soap operas? Mostly reruns of pre-Calamity programs? I mean, if Steelheart was still producing new episodes of Doctor Who, then maybe Megan was right and bringing him down was a bad idea.
  5. I'm going to take a shot in the dark and assume that a fan site to an author is going to have a person or two who likes to read. If I am correct and you do exist, I wonder what your opinion is on the Reading Rainbow Kickstarter? I think it's great, I loved the show as a kid and think all kids should be encouraged to read. My one concern is that I think the app's subscription is priced a bit high at $10 a month. For those that don't know Reading Rainbow is a kids show that ran from 1983 to 2006. It was hosted by LeVar Burton and was intended to encourage children to read. After cancellation by PBS the show was bought by Burton's company RRKIDZ who turned it into an iTunes app. They have now started a fundraising drive through Kickstarter in order to expand the app into a web based program that will have special support for educators who want to use the material in their classrooms. The drive started on May 28, 2014 and raised their initial goal of 1 million dollars in under twelve hours. They are now working on their first stretch goal of 5 million dollars, which will increase the number of schools that receive the program for free as well as insure that the program is able to be ported to a variety of other devices. If this has piqued your interest and you want to know more check out the link below. But you don't have to take my word on it...
  6. Okay, so Titanfall has been out for 2 months or so. I got it fairly recently, and man, is it awesome! I'm currently level 38, and my favorite loadouts are Pilot: Primary Weapon: R101 Carbine with Extended Mags and Holosight Secondary Weapon: Autopistol Tactical: Cloak Ordnance: Satchel Charge (quick way to kill multiple grunts/spetctres without breaking a sweat. Might even get some pilot collateral.) Tier 1 and 2 kit: Extended Parkour kit and Minion Detector Titan: Chasis: Ogre Primary Weapon: Chaingun with accelerator. Tactical Ability: Electric Smoke (gets rid of pesky rodeos.) Ordnance: Cluster Missile Kit: Nuclear Ejection (for the lols) and Big Dome Shield battery I'm trying to unlock the Spitfire LMG. What's your Titanfall account like?
