| Gaming Board|| The Banner Saga - PC - HempHead on 1/26/14 at 4:33 pm|
Just bought this the other day on Steam. Beautiful artwork, fantastic music, and a very well-told and fleshed-out story. It's more like an interactive story rather than a pure 'game' (except for the turn-based combat), but I would still highly recommend it to anyone who is considering purchasing it....

Most of us know and love Duane's tenure with the Allman Brothers Band. IMO, the original outfit was the greatest jam band in history. I've heard no other band come close to the chemistry and innovation that came from their early years.
That's not the subject of this post, however. I'm not too sur...

Saw this the other night on Netflix. Black plays Bernie Tiede, a mortician in mid 90's Carthage, Texas. The plot is interrupted every few minutes or so with commentary from (many authentic) townsfolk about the story. Very genuine, and very funny. It is also, in my opinion, Black's best acting perfor...

After all, money must be...
