    Mass Effect Series

    I am patient, don't hurry! :) And then you may be able to say something to my spoiler, too. Would be interesting.

    Mass Effect Series

    Yes, I'm looking forward to your opinion about the ending(s). Some players seem to be really disappointed... I read one comment that says something like: As I mentioned before that I don't like Steam, either this is not the way to change my opinion about Origin, but I have the (very...

    Mass Effect Series

    Mass Effect 3 for PC Reviews, Ratings, Credits, and More at Metacritic The user score and the user reviews don't look very positive... I don't know if this result has also something to do with the Origins restriction and not with the game itself. At least it softens my frustration about not...

    Mass Effect Series

    I don't like Steam either. I'm a rather old-fashioned type of player, who prefers playing games without necessary online-activation and similar restrictions... ;)

    Mass Effect Series

    For playing the PC version of the game you must have an Origin-account (it's something like Steam but especially for EA games). I guess this problem doesn't exist with consoles? Have no experience with them...

    Mass Effect Series

    I WAS looking forward to it, but then I heard that you are forced to install this Origin and register there - and I am definitley against this kind of restrictions! If there would be a chance to play ME 3 without such boundaries one day I would be so happy to buy and play it, but so far the...

    Current Non-Fiction reads

    I am in the final chapters of "Phantoms in the Brain: Probing the Mysteries of the Human Mind" by VS. Ramachandran. A really fascinating book!

    Tennessee Williams: A streetcar named desire

    I read A streetcar named desire after I had seen the movie, therefore my imagination has always been influenced. But I enjoyed both. I think the description of Blanche's way into madness is excellent and very intriguing. If I am not mistaken this "rely on the kindness of strangers" is...

    Interesting yet bored

    Goethe's Wahlverwandtschaften (Elective Affinities). The subject was very interesting, but reading it was so enormously boring...

    Moving in with someone: who's doing the moving?

    In my opinion this is the only way at all a relationship can work and last, so there is no need to answer further questions... ;) Sorry, and best regards from a hermit's way of looking at life :)

    Book Journal

    I use an Access database, where I enter all my books. I mark them when I've read them with a rating system and sometimes a few comments as well, and an "x" when I don't want to read them again.

    Reading as a way to understand how women think

    I think the only one you can learn to understand a bit better by reading a book is the author himself/herself and additionaly maybe the time in which he/she lived. THE woman does not exist, there are many of us and we are all different. :) Why not reading Simone de Beauvoir or Anais Nin?

    Alice in Wonderland

    Maybe you are right - I can't remember the map exactly. I haven't thought of the possibility to "connect" Wonderland with reality this way until now - what a shame!

    Alice in Wonderland

    Alice in Wonderland

    I saw it yesterday and I like it very much. 3D is pretty cool. I love the style of Tim Burton and Johnny Depp is always great. :)
