I liked American Gods because it shows Gaiman finally figuring out a narrative way to turn his dramatic weaknesses into strengths.  A book in which all of the characters and plotting are flat one-dimensional cardboard archetypes because they're designed to be flat one-dimensional cardboard archetypes... ingenious!  It's a much better system than Gaiman's usual writing, in which all the characters who are supposed to be "characters" still turn out to be made of flat cardboard and glued together with complete wastes of time.  The trick all along was to stop trying for success and simply celebrate complete failure instead.

Note: when I say "liked" what I really mean is "found myself loathing it less virulently than usual."

A more fun exercise is Good Omens, in which Gaiman wrote half the characters, and Pratchett wrote the other half, and see if you can guess which are which.  Hint: the ones based on Big Ideas are Gaiman, and the ones that have even the most token amount of depth are Pratchett.

More Bastion. That soundtrack could have sold the game on its own.

Torchlight. It was a "While you wait for Diablo III"-bonus that came with a game magazine.

I've mostly been building stuff in Minecraft on a small-population no-grief Survival server. It's my thesnuggly for losing all my Brikwars buddies in California and my WoW group over some stupid fight and defriendification with the social hub.

Aha, the REAL reason you're back on the forum.  Did they catch you stealing stuff on security camera?
