Given the title of this blog and the content so far I reckon I ramble fairly nicely, not managing to stay on any particular topic for more than a week!

First up here is a newspaper cutting that amused me this morning. It was the video title at the end that cracked me up!

Secondly, if you enjoyed Neverwinter Nights or Baldur's Gate then pop over to GameSpot and check out their Neverwinter Nights 2 videos. The latest one that I watched had a few minutes worth of real game content and the commentator gave some really interesting tidbits of information on the general gameplay - such as 1 main character and 3 fully controllable companions (a bit like KOTOR), great new graphics engine, DnD v3.5 ruleset (not that I know what that means any more!), cooperative multiplayer support (bloomin' good job too) etc etc.

GameSpot is definitely my favourite website for Gaming news etc. I must get round to adding a link on my sidebar. Shame it is blocked from my office!

Finally, how are you doing with Google's DaVinci Code puzzle? Only 2 days left!!!!

I so wanted to enjoy Neverwinter Nights and even with your helpful hints and tips I never did manage to get through it. Shame really, as it really appealed -- maybe I'm just useless at those types of games.

To prove my point - completely addicted to Tombraider Legend!

Its the short shorts right?
Given your Star Wars preference I reckon you should try the original Knights of the Old Republic, which you should be able to find cheap somewhere!

If you want am even more classic RPG, Planescape: Torment had some of the best characterization/dialogue ever. The game is as old as the hills now, but I always did like Planescape.

Planescape Torment was the best of the old school RPGs, which included Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale.
Knowing Gareth though I suspect he would enjoy KotOR more.

I'd need to be shown by some helpful gentlemen the best approach to playing it.....

....can it play and a 1700mhz laptop?

...oh and James, you're right it's the shorts..... :)
