Hey there! Yeah, well, although I really really enjoy Dragon's Dogma I always hesitate a bit when it comes to recommend the game. When I started playing it it took some time until I got hooked, because I was only used to the Bioware rpgs which are so different from DD.
I have decided that I won't jump to next-gen. I still have so many 360 games to play, and so many great ones that I haven't even started, so I won't really need another console. There are a few next-gen exclusives that seem interesting, but a few games are not enough to make me pay hundreds of € for a new console. Plus I have only recently bought a PC (which I actually bought for Elder Scrolls Online) and I STILL haven't played The Old Republic! I started playing it, but don't have time for it at the moment, so I'll continue as soon as I'm done with my MA thesis And SWTOR is probably going to keep me busy for quite some time.
Thai Red Curries can be REALLY spicy sometimes. I guess it really depends on how many Thai Chilies they put in it. I might have just had an unusually spicy one and maybe on average Vindaloos are spicier. I did have an incredible Nepalese Vindaloo in London just over a year ago, but it wasn't the spiciest.
