Ask @Nullzone42:

Seen any movies lately? Were any of those good?

Frozen was fantastic and still sticks with me. Thor: The Dark World was also good because Marvel, and also plenty of Loki, Sif, and Kat Dennings appreciation time. Gravity kind of blew me away too, even while I was sitting in the theater and realized that all of the trailers are basically the first 30 minutes of the movie I was still engrossed in the story right to the end.
Those three spring to mind, but I've missed a LOT of movies I've wanted to see this past year, sadly, so not much else to add to the list either :(

Have you tried Savage Worlds & what did you think of it?

I don't think I've actually sat down with a full iteration of Savage Worlds ever. I have the deluxe edition thanks to the Deadlands project, but my eyes went a little cross-eyed trying to read the SW rulebook; it felt very rules heavy without actually offering any interesting mechanics. So that probably doesn't bode super well for my opinion of the game, uninformed as it may be.

Do you like League of Legends?

Not really. I was introduced to MOBAs with the original DOTA, and had a fine time with it with friends, but am not a very competitive person and got tired of the broken record of the shit-spewing community behaviors in DOTA and every MOBA I've tried since.
I do appreciate a lot of their design methods, both in game mechanics as well as aesthetics, but they fall into the same category as fighting games or most public multiplayer communities for me - as long as their communities continue to be full of roid-raging asslords, I want nothing to do with it.

Do you have a mantra or recurring thought that helps you get through the day? What is it?

It depends. Sometimes it's a matter of finding the next "milestone" and just looking towards that. Others it's an overall goal, like when I have vacation coming up. And, hell, some days it's just me chanting "You're not a fuckup" over and over again.
Being able to reach out and touch people on a regular basis (both literally and figuratively) goes a long way, too. Just knowing there are people listening and interested in me and what I'm doing. (One of the reasons I do ask.fm, actually!)

Have you ever played the Burning Wheel RPG? If so, what was your impression?

I haven't ever played it. The broad strokes impressions I have of it from listening to others are that it spends a lot of energy setting itself apart from the other RPGs that were popular at the time, which is rarely something I like. I want the game to stand on its own merits, not spend time/energy telling me why it's better than that other game over there. I will freely admit this is a potentially very ignorant position, though.
