The Dig novel
Yesiree, just finsished the book 6 minutes ago and I must say, tis a fine piece of writing. I like the book's Space Time 6 a lot more especially. A very non-descript description. I always thought that the game's ST6 was kind of funky. Good thing I've played the game before though, it would've been mighty hard to visualize any of the stuff in there. I can't imagine trying to picture the spider thingy that kid-napped Maggie. Now, I am very interested to hear your thoughts, so FIRE AWAY! If you haven't read the book yet...I spit on you, you un-cultured swine!:swear:

*is spat upon*

I should really read it some time.

Schmatz 04-18-2002 10:45 PM

Isn't there some spoiler tag now so we can hide certain things for certain people who havent read it so we don't ruin it for them? Oh, well this should work...


Anyways I like the book because there is just a better description of everything, and I like the whole beginning a lot better than the game, but I'm happy the game summarized that part :p . Anyways, I like how they really have to look around a lot on the surface before finding the nexus as well.

Also, my favorite part of the book is when they find Brink in the closet, basically 'making love' to his crystals in the corner. Heh heh.

Metallus 04-18-2002 10:56 PM

I haven't got the slightest clue what you're talking about.

Yeah yeah, I know

Snubs 04-19-2002 12:32 AM

GreenJeanz 04-19-2002 07:04 PM

BUYAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA! *falls out the chair laughing hysterically* HEEHEHEHEHEHEH!!!!!!!!!! :D Err..*ahem* Excuse me.
I like that part too Schmatz.

Another um..interesting when Ludger and Boston discover the planetarium. Look at that part Schmatz and see if you can guess why I like that. BYAHAHAHAH!!!!!!! Um. Don't mind me.

Snubs 04-19-2002 09:00 PM

If you mean what I think you mean...

GreenJeanz 04-19-2002 11:05 PM

What do you think I mean? :D

This planet is going straight to heck, that's all there is to it...

GreenJeanz 04-20-2002 04:45 PM

LOL! :rolleyes:

elTee 04-20-2002 05:13 PM

In the book it actually says that Boston is from San Francisco - some of the novel is spent there. That is, of course, where LucasArts live.

GreenJeanz 04-20-2002 07:41 PM

Yup. And, Boston is 42. It doesn't tell the age of anyone else though.

Schmatz 04-20-2002 07:59 PM

Hmmm... I don't remember them being gay...
But isn't that the part with the snakes? I mean I remember the planetarium is REALLY different, but nothing about homosexuality... use the spoiler tag to explain to me, I must have forgotten. I only remember the hungry dead snake thingies.

GreenJeanz 04-20-2002 11:08 PM

How do I DO the spoiler tag? o_O

GreenJeanz 04-20-2002 11:15 PM

Never mind. Anyway. They aren't SUPPOSED to be gay, but um..there's some odd stuff in the novel. I don't want to sound like a psycho conspiracy theorist or something. I'm mostly just kidding around anyway. I can type out a list if anyone is curious.

LucasArts is in San Rafael, California, not San Fransisco.

elTee 04-21-2002 10:20 AM

California's California, and Marin County is closest to Frisco - that's an assumption, I don't really know. I just ... wanted.. to sound... like I knew something.... please don't kill me!! PLEASE!!!!!!

Zaarin 04-21-2002 10:23 PM

I guess I'd better learn how to read.

Schmatz 04-23-2002 01:29 AM

My mommy read it to me... it was fun.

GreenJeanz 04-23-2002 10:03 PM

Did she do all the voices and fun sound effects too like snarling spider-monsters and bones being sawed?

Zaarin 04-25-2002 12:36 AM

I think I'd be too scared with all those SFX

Schmatz 04-25-2002 01:02 AM

yeah she used my arm for the sound effects.... I like my metal arm :D

jokemaster 10-18-2002 02:20 PM

Snubs 10-22-2002 01:34 PM

Guano 11-11-2002 02:20 PM

You can have it read by this Lex Luthor guy. Of course I DID read it myself before listening to the audio book.

John Shea, that's him.

I love the little Lunar Lander guy. I logged a good bit of time in that sucker. Good for simmering down when a puzzle had me stumped for a bit and I wanted to turn my computer off with a monkey wrench...
