There are so many Warhammer books. I have one, but I haven't read it yet.

Have you given up on Meinkraft?

I don't know if you play the game or not, but if you don't, It might not make much sense. The storyline is heavily interwoven with the game.

I forgot which of the Warhammer books I have.

I can't wait for this to come out!

TBH, I'd rather have Medieval III (or [drooling] Empire II) but I'm still going to play it. 

I wonder how they will handle the Skaven? Likewise, the Dwarven strongholds are interconnected by tunnel-highways.  They already have Hoarde Mechanics from Attila that they can use for the Orks.  Will the Empire be one mass or will it be a federation (Ostland, Reikland, Nuln, etc)?  Depending on the time period, Marienburg should probably be separated.  Will the Tileans and Estalians be there?  And what of the Lizardmen and Dark Elves from across the sea?

All said and done, could be pretty good.  Especially interested in the Orks and Skaven, though the Dwarves were my favorite back when I played TT.

Some of them are very good by themselves - anything by Dan Abnett is going to be good.  The Caiaphas Cain ones are quite hilarious.  The three first ones in the Inquisitor series (Xenos, Malleus, Hereticus) are very nice and in a mostly-civilian setting so you won't be totally lost if the author mentions a Leman Russ or Predator Annihilator with no further description assuming you know exactly what he is talking about!

Minecraft - you will love it or hate it, no middle ground.

Given that the only time I ever come out of the house is for college and/or working and that I have no social life whatsoever, there has been a huge video game revival in my life. Really I haven't gamed this much since I was 12 years old. Study, Work (occasionally), video games, repeat. I love the simplicity of life right now.I've been playing Super Mario 64 again, along with other classic N64 games. I used to play Skyrim nonstop but with the accidental loss of my saved game--nearly 2 years of progress--I rage quit and vowed to never play again. Boy I miss hunting Giants.
Yep doing the same thing here. Seriously once I get settled in my new place can't wait to go back to routine.

And see my dreams corrode with rust;
Now all that’s left are fruitless fires
That burn my empty heart to dust.”

I played the original Knights of the Old Republic on my phone for a while when I was ridding the bus to and from work, but I got bored and ended up deleting the app from my phone.

I guess video games can't hold my attention like they used to.

I strongly recommend Cardinal Quest 2 for iOS or Android. It's an excellent old school RPG in the "roguelike" genre. Best of all, it's free (and no, there are no ads, and the game is completely enjoyable without paying a cent, though I would recommend supporting the developer if you like it).

X Box's free games for Gold players this month include "How to Survive," and "World of Tanks." Don't know how well I'll do, but free is free. :)

No new Dragon Quest game on a console in North America since 2005*, but now we're getting Dragon Quest Heroes in October and Dragon Quest XI in May 2016. There really is a God.

More CKII. The Prussians have established the Wendish Empire and are taking over the world.
