I have no doubt that you're right about NEB, but there used to be way less info available on the computer; and it was handy to have a copy of their catalogue around as a reference for restriction sites, buffer compatibility tables, etc. I think I still have one in my closet that my PI gave me in grad school.

No - I literally meant the 80's cyberpunk game! I'm currently playing a Corporate.

When I was first introduced to it a few years ago, I was a little omg this is such a little boys game, look at the big boobs and guns ... But I realized I really, really like the world and the concept. I had thought I was more of a D&D type girl, but CP ended up being amazing, and is my hands down favourite! The alternate history's of canada, the us, and europe add a lot of realism. My group has been playing so long that they have fleshed out all that history even more.

I'm a gamer girl, what can I say?

Most of my friends are 10-15 years older than me, so they all have the original books. Plus we purchased the PDF copies. I am the "youngling" in my circle...
So yes, I play CP. But when they start going on about kids in the hall i tune out =P

That is awesome! I played the first edition some when it first came out, and didn't fall in love with the rules too much (although I did love the Fixer I was playing). Later I met ShadowRun (magic+cyperpunk type setting -- magic comes back, which leads to all sorts of problems, deaths, weakening/collapse of governments, power gained by corporations as they could provide the most stability....) and that became my cyberpunk (small C) setting of choice.....granted I didn't play between '91 when I graduatate university and left my play group until I started up a campaign for my son earlier this year, but I held onto a few books all those years....

Pokemon is contagious, you can catch it from your kids When my son was about six years old, his older cousins passed down a Gameboy color and a few cartridges, including pokemon blue and yellow. He'd already learned about pokemon on the playground, and was eager to play. It was his first video game and we figured he'd get stuck in places, so I'd play Blue each night once he was in bed so that I could stay ahead of him and help him out when he got there in yellow. Naturally I got hooked, and I later played Silver, Emerald, and some of Black (but I just found Black lacked the magic of the earlier games. I got through a few gyms and still didn't really like any of my pokemon, so gave up). My son got back into the game recently for the Alpha Sapphire/Omega Ruby (or was it the other way around?) so I'm sure hearing about a lot of Pokemon stuff these days, making me wonder if I should give Black another try?

The fact that you started a campaign for your son also deserves +1! That's awesome. I am sure my group knows shadowrun, but I haven't heard of it, so I will have to look into it. The hardest part of gaming as an adult is a) you are all tired... b) it can't happen on a worknight due to responsibilitues and c) half of them have kids (who they want to leave behind so they can let go and game/drink), so babysitting can be a challenge.

@Loopy - I didn't even know that different mushroom types triggered allergies! It makes sense, because i have insane levels of food intolerances/sensitivities myself...but mushrooms just hadn't occurred to me

If you like the cyberpunk genre, you'd love ShadowRun. The tabletop version was great, the console version was AMAZING (Genesis), and there was a remake released just recently on PC, which looked good (haven't played it, though).

I've bought the PC version, but not played more than a couple of minutes yet. Actually there have been games/episodes/whatchamacallits put out using the engine: ShadowRun Returns and Dragon Fall. I've read that the latter was a much better story/experience, but I can't comment yet (I killed the computer I had them on, and haven't re downloaded onto my laptop yet). They are turn-based, rather than action/realtime, so depending on your preferences that could be good or horrible.

PS: ShadowRun motto: "Watch your back. Shoot straight. Conserve Ammo. And never, ever, cut a deal with a dragon."

PPS: and RPG game art.....will be RPG game art, apparently My son has concluded that all female elves in the ShadowRun universe apparently have an allergy to clothes.... anyway, if you want to read more about the world, this is a decent introduction: https://s3.amazonaws.com/ch_shadowru...run_primer.pdf

Haha, I know, right? My sister caught it off me and ever since the DS was released we have got every pokemon game together! She has played all the pokemon games actually, apart from silver/gold/crystal because we can't find any that still work (the internal batteries die after 10 years or so). That is so sweet that you helped him with his game though! I bet he appreciated it! I know what you mean about Black, I didn't like the Black/White series of games very much at all, I thought they felt rushed and unfinished. However, X and Y and Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire are all good, solid games with more of a traditional pokemon feel to them. I'd suggest those games if you were looking to get back into it!

To be honest I didn't even think about it until it happened to me! I ate some fancy mushrooms one night and the next day when I woke up my skin was absolutely covered in rashes. Apparently I had three different kinds of rash but thankfully within a few days it settled down. Normal button mushrooms have no effect at all on me though.

Oh no, that's the worst! My allergies usually just result in itchy watery eyes with a stuffy nose or an itchy throat, tongue, lips, etc. However, twice my system has just been totally overloaded and I broke out in a rash from my neck to my feet, it's miserable. The second time I was at my boyfriend's and he felt so bad because it was probably caused by him taking me to the rodeo.

Such lovely pale sand. The rivers where I live are murky and gator-infested.

I sense a theme developing here.

Another favorite:

Gator:

This guy lives in captivity now, but he was born in the wild and was captured after being wounded by a local landowner wielding a shotgun. Apparently birdshot is not that effective in taking out a half-ton gator.

Oh, I wore one. Haha

Halloween party at the most gorgeous house on the side of a mountain, drunk on sangria, dancing to the Gipsy Kings. Good times.

What can I say. It's been a consciousness expanding ride at times. Perhaps I may have read a little too much Huxley, Kerouac, and Kesey and listened to a little too much Morrison and Hendrix in my formative years.
