I just want to say, in my boredom while waiting for release, I've read the first 3 books (just barely into the 4th now) of George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series. I know talking about BOOKS is probably blasphemy in a videogame forum, but if anyone here reads fantasy, they're an absolute must read. Hands down best series I've read
I read the first book, and it was pretty good. Last book I really got into was World War Z, good read if you like/fear zombies. I used to read constantly, as the 500+ books taking up space in my garage indicates, but I haven't been a voracious reader in years. It's odd, almost like my attention span is getting lower as I get older...that or I've just reached them max number of hobbies my brain can handle so others have been shut down. I still read comic books though, there are a few really good books being published right now and in the last few years. The Walking Dead and The Boys are my current favorites. 100 Bullets, The Exterminators, The Invisibles, Planetary, Preacher and Y the Last Man (two of the best stories ever told, comic book or otherwise) all ended their runs but still awesome. IMO some of the best story telling happening right now is in comic books.
Yes, got to meet Max Brooks at ComiCon this year :D
