In the days when Sussman was a novice, Minsky once came to him as he sat hacking at the PDP-6.
“What are you doing?”, asked Minsky. “I am training a randomly wired neural net to play Tic-Tac-Toe” Sussman replied. “Why is the net wired randomly?”, asked Minsky. “I do not want it to have any preconceptions of how to play”, Sussman said.
Minsky then shut his eyes. “Why do you close your eyes?”, Sussman asked his teacher.
“So that the room will be empty.”
At that moment, Sussman was enlightened.

We have always been at war with OceaniaElfland.

We're even going to pull the switcheroo at some point when elves are updated, and we will always have been at war with Elfland the Ant People. Because Elves will be useful and good at some point.

There is nothing amazing in Bioshock2. Good game, but I played it twice (got both endings (save all, harvest all)) and that was that.

DF? There is never anything the same. And want to know the best part? In a few short [units of time] we will have DF2010 which is going to CHANGE THE GAME ALL OVER AGAIN.

We all get to learn ALL new things. The game that was never the same, will forever be even LESS the same once DF2010 is released.
A little off topic.  But Bioshock officially have 3 endings (each have 2 variations, one contains 2 separate choices for two different ending, for a total of 8 combination of endings).  Try harvest some and save some.
P.S. Whether you killed Grace or not governs the variations.  Killing the rest does not appear to change anything.

One of the toads decided to go for a swim in the moat - presumably because he could path through the moat to my dwarves. He is not charging in, just loitering in the moat.

The toad is having a nice relaxing swim.
The goblin mounted on his back, however, is drowning.

Lol. I must be one of the lucky ones, Managed to beat Dante's Inferno (all while thinking "I should be playing DF" every time I killed a baby) before literally LUNGING at my computer to play DF.

If you hit a dwarf with moving water with sufficient strength it will knock the baby out of the mother's arms.  The water can then be used to sweep the baby into a well or cistern for drowning.  The device which does this can also double as a mist generator.

MyLittlePonyBuiltMyHotRod, this is your first warning. I would like to direct you to read our forum's FAQ and posting guidelines before posting again. Specifically we don't use swear words here, and your picture of Stalin riding a Year3 Limited Edition Starflower inside a German concentration camp was both upsetting and historically inaccurate.

I have no idea about EVIL, but I can't wait to play the next version.  All the daily DEV logs are making me quite giddy.

That is technically 7 more endings that DF has....

I'd rather watch some DF Let's Play, than actualy play any new commertial game. Recently I tried new Alien vs. Predator, and... well, I torn off some marines head while playing a predator. Third Marine died exactly the same way as the first! I've just instantly deleted the game (14GB of useless data) and jumped right back to Elf vs Magma :D

You need to make said elf leather into the most amazing work of art.  Embed it with every kind of gem you have, stud it with metals, and sew images into it.  Erect a shrine outside your fort with that in the center.  Let the elves know that you view their very skin as naught more but a medium for your dwarves to work on.

DF has only one ending:

Losing :P

It's Fun.

Which just goes to show that one ending is enough and other games are just wasting our time with there multiple ending shenanigans.
