I've been reading The Expance, really good sci fi books. I'm currently on the third book.
The season 1 of the TV series adaptation is pretty faithful to the books (havent watched the second season)
If you liked the TV series, like me, you will love the Books.

Quality and quantity is an equation that also includes time, including an expiration date.

I also wonder if we'll jump around and see some childhood memories or events from her private time (e.g. the stress/exhaustion of leading the Falcons), maybe even something we've never seen before!
After reading this, i now hope for a scene of the falcons that  takes place before Guts joined them !

The "bonfire of dreams" scene is an iconic part of the Golden Age arc. The name is from that era (it's the title of episode 22), meaning it was created over 20 years ago. Bearing that in mind, I don't think your question makes sense.
I was simply thinking, since it fits so good together. Could it be that he had something like this in mind when giving this title. I know why its specifically called a "bonfire of dreams" and i remember the conversation Guts and Casca had, i was simply asking that perhaps he picked the name and planned this scene thinking ahead. We know he has done things like this in the past.

Thank you Aaz and Puella you two are awesome as always =)
Here's a rough summary courtesy of puella:

They're interrupted by a voice, which in the real world was Casca's voice: "A bonfire... of dreams...". Guts turns back and replies: "Ahh, what a good line. You sound like some kind of princess."
What a beautiful scene, thinking of the name "bonfire of dreams". Do you think that it's possible mr. Miura chose the name on purpose, seeing as they are in a dream right now?

Holy shit, Penance is a fucking menace! The fight is so RNG heavy at the beginning!
I was bored through out this whole fight. Never managed to beat him just because i would always close the console before killing him. I did however cheat him with the yonjimbo trick, but that doesnt really count.

I saw Rogue One a couple of days ago. I really enjoyed it. I went in having zero expectations and having read no reviews at all. The passing bothered me a bit, i think they had to spend a bit more time between scenes to develop the characters, but other than that it was a fun time.

I recently finished my mandatory army training, 9 months of traveling around Greece and working as a dentist, so i wanted to read something about the army. I searched for sci fi books tha had a military element to them. I am between "The Forever War" and "Enders Game". I remember the later beeing recommended here all the time, so i might pick this up.

I finished Shovel Knight, man what an amazing game. I couldn't put the vita down. I really enjoyed the Kratos fight, really well done.
Now i don't know if i'll try N+ or start a new game with Plague Knight.

We actually use the word "teras" in every day life. It's a literal translation to the word Monster. I don't know why they did change it since its simply called Monster in the Japanese translation

 I recently bought a dirt cheap PS vita out of a local add. As i entirely missed this generation of handhelds, i am trying to play some of the best ones. I instantly bought Shovel Knight and i've been having the best time. Really good game.
I also bought Spelunky and i am currently reading up to find a good RPG, i'll probably get "Ys: Memories of Celceta" has anybody played it ?

This happens a lot here in Greece. There are a lot of goverment buildings that havent got anyone working there. In case you need something, there is someone telling you that said person is on an errand and that he should be back in around half an hour. That person, then calls the other fella who then starts to get to work. I encountered many problems when i tried to get my work permit. The person incharge was on "holiday" for quite a while and all the other people didnt know what the hell they were doing.

Final Batman vs Superman trailer - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PRjWvVQz-NI

There's more Batman in this trailer than Supes.
I honestly feel like I've watched the entire movie through all the trailers !

I would recommend watching episodes 1 and 2, then watching all of the Clone Wars series, then episode 3.
Ok that's it, you've convinced me. I am going to start watching the Clone Wars. Should i start from the beginning ? I remember you saying that season 1 isn't that good compared to the others. I don't really mind skipping one or two seasons.

I watched it a few days ago, it came out at 24th of December in my country (no idea why). I loved every minute of it,  but by the end i was very skeptical.
Some things bothered the hell out of me, you guys mentioned it before but at times i felt that the writing was really sloppy.
Ok now we don't have a death star, we have a bigger death star (granted it destroyed multiple planets at once but they could have thought of something else)
R2-D2 waking up conveniently towards the end and revealing the whole map bothered the hell out of me.
The last part was the earthquake, Rey was standing above Kylo then seconds later there was an ridge seperating them. Maybe they removed some seconds for the final cut, dunno seemed kinda dumb.

I'm thinking of starting The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. Got the first book. Anyone read that?
I loved the Dresden files. Action packed and good story telling. The first books are kinda rough but it gets better over time. Don't really expect anything mind blowing but i bet you will enjoy them.
I just finished The Martian, i saw that a movie was being made and i had heard that the book was amazing. I got it for a Christmas present so i dove right into it. I frigging loved it, if you like sci fi definitely check this book out.

I really enjoy watching Game Grumps and that's about it. I think they are really funny, they usually play older games (and they fail misserably) but thhey will always make me laugh. The episodes are 10 minutes long so i usually watch one before going to bed. I tried watching some of the popular lets players but i can't really get into them.

Read the comic (maybe last year?) and loved it. Gonna see it with low expectations though ... Cassidy doesn't have his signature comic book look but the guy who plays him was decent in another show called Misfits.

I was hoping this wasn't Cassidy. Was it really that hard to have him wear sunglasses ??
I've only read the first book of the series, but my brother is a huge fan. I've got to read the whole thing, i only hear good stuff about the rest of the series.

Glad to hear it! You should know going in that it starts pretty slowly, which has turned a lot of people off to the book. But don't give up, and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
I'm currently at the beginning of the book (around 70 pages in), but i can already tell you that i really like it. I love the way the book is written, the author is really talented, plus the characters look really interesting.

Spurred by its 50th anniversary this year, I started reading Dune again -- for the 4th time. I'm sure those who have been on this forum a while already know how much I love this book. And this time, maybe just maybe I'll read Herbert's other Dune books as well.  :void:
IMHO Dune Messiah is just as good. I've never read the books after that, i was a bit burned out by the time i ended the second book, but i will read the next books as well.

I also ended the Dresden Files and i got to say that i really liked them. After a while you become really interested with the characters so i personally couldn't wait to see what will happen next.

Finished anatomy in may, last class required to enter physical therapy program. Currently working at a company that builds engraving lasers. The building I'm in, built them there and tests them. Also, repairs purchased ones.
Try to do some orthopedic manual therapy courses after the physical therapy. Honestly,  those guys saved my life.


I was just thinking the same thing! But of course, Joe Chip loves Berserk because Guts has great teeth. :SK:
Their also strong!!
