This is actually the main reason I never got around to reading the series (well that, and the fact that I read Gunslinger twice in an effort to get into the series and hated it both times.)
The Gunslinger is the least important book in the series. It actually turned me off too, but then I read the book after that and I was hooked for the rest (until book 5 where things go to "meh.")

|Spy secondary idea: Bulletproof Vest (20) | Posted on Jan. 7, 2012, 2:20 a.m.|
|Replacing the Sapper would replace his only support ability and the spy is categorized as a Support character.|
Would give newbies the idea that it's okay to completely ignore any form of team synergy so long as you can last longer on the battlefield. So, no. It's a terrible, terrible idea.
I think he should get an alternative for the sapper because it's situational and requires the enemy to have an engy who builds to be of any use whatsoever.
A free slot for a situational weapon. Win.
But hey, it's not like any Dr. Enforcicle Spies are going to use their sapper anyways.
Because no Spycicle Spies every sap Sentries!
Might as well replace it with a bulletproof vest that gives hp and promotes recklessness. I like where the new battle spy sub-class is going.
You want to take the risk out of being a Spy even more than it is now, worse, take away their only supportive ability. I cannot stress enough how awful an idea this is.
|Should I start the Dark Tower or should I read Hyperion? (4) | Posted on Jan. 6, 2012, 2:01 p.m.|
|Hyperion is easier to digest.|
The Dark Tower is, at best, a roller-coaster. It has high highs and low lows and I'm sure you'll enjoy it, but there are times, especially towards the end, where you're basically reading to get to the end. It also helps to have an understanding of Stephen King's other books like IT, Salem's Lot, The Stand, and Hearts in Atlantis.

You'll also want to read The Fall of Hyperion, the less satisfying but no less compelling conclusion. Mind you, I still haven't finished it myself.

I mean, a band of rebels overthrowing an empire isn't exactly new, but you had concepts like Alamancy (I think I spelled that right) I should be really into it.

"Minecraft's combat is extremely boring.

Opinionated much? How exactly am I supposed to take this seriously?
The whole review seems bent on pegging Minecraft as some kind of half-assed project.

|I agree, Valve really didn't need to cool the Pyro's jets. |
That, however, nothing compared to how they energized the Engineer by dispensing the Pomson 6000. With a long range laser gun zapping the Medic's Uber and Spy's cloak it's going to drive them ballistic. Hopefully, they can erect a decent defense. I for one am hoping Valve neutralizes both weapons.

* Tell others to stop enjoying the game.

I want them to farm them, because I can't figure out where the damn gifts spawn and other people farming them makes them cheaper for me to get them for.
Im in the same boat.
You have no idea how bad it is on some servers. We'd get six Scouts on our team because they all wanted to be the first to get the next present. Meanwhile, I'm getting blown to bits by rocket-fire, cut by Minigun fire, or Backburned by Pyros. Our team Engi quits because no one's answering him when he asks for cover-fire to establish a Sentry, Dispenser, and the like.
