I've seen this commercial a hundred times and I still laugh every time imagining Garrus saying, "Oh, box wine! As if!"

Good God, that is so weird to hear Garrus be cheesy like that, Lol.

Good to know he has some work in the pipeline now that Mass Effect is done with.   Damn, that's some funny stuff.

There's a new series of ME minimates coming.  I'm not a huge fan of Minimates, but these are cool.  I have some from series 1.  Not sure when, but I expect these to come out around November.  Oh, and Shepard comes with both male and female variants.

Ha!  I was just coming to say "Roooooooad Triiiiiip!"   I want this to be cool.  I so want this to be cool, but I've never even heard of the place they are putting it.  Just put it in Disneyland and finally give me a "must see" reason to to go there vs. Disneyworld.  (We are a WDW every year or two family).

I love to read this stuff. Space exploration is taking off now more than I can remember and I feel like we're on the verge of something big. Maybe not in my lifetime, but soon enough, I think. It's very exciting.

And along these lines, if you've not seen The Martian or read the book (I've done both and I'm re-reading the book again after seeing the movie), you're doing it wrong. :shame:

Should I read the book first or watch the movie first? I am leaning towards watching the movie first and than reading the book, since the book is normally better and I would just be comparing the book to the movie adaption the whole time.

I picked up the Kindle version for $2 a few weeks before the movie released.  $9 now, as it seems.

 

Should I read the book first or watch the movie first? I am leaning towards watching the movie first and than reading the book, since the book is normally better and I would just be comparing the book to the movie adaption the whole time.

I read the book first before seeing the movie and I'm going through and re-reading to to see what they didn't cover in the movie.

 

The book was better than the movie, though only because there's more hard science and math discussed than in the movie.  Movie is amazing in the visuals they showed (see it in 3D if you can, IMAX 3D preferably), though if they did all of the book as a movie, it would have been 3.5-4 hours long. 

 

There's a lot less cursing in the movie than the the book and some stuff is a bit streamlined in the movie, though it gets the spirit of the book very very close.   I think it's a must-read for any of the regulars in here.
