I like to see action AND intelligence in the games, books and movies I enjoy. The suggestions below feature a lot of action and a hero that must use his or her intellect or a story that deals with complex, thoughtful concepts.
in The Night’s Dawn Trilogy (The Reality Dysfunction, The Neutronium Alchemist and The Naked God), the very survival of humanity is on the line as the dead possess whole planets in a high-tech future. This massive epic is one hell of a ride; a relentless and incredibly entertaining space-opera of awesome proportions!

Thousands of years from now, a tiny kingdom of peace-loving peasants living on the fringes of a poisonous forest finds itself dragged into a senseless war that threaten to destroy whatever clean land remains.
One of the best feature of the Nintendo Wii is that you can play any of the older Nintendo GameCube games. You can often find second-hand GameCube games, so it’s an great way to build-up your game selection at an affordable price. I also think that the higher-quality GameCube games are actually better-looking and more fun to play than most Wii games. So here are my favourites!
Qui ne se rappelle pas du petit Vicky qui, lorsqu’il réfléchissait à un moyen de sortir ses amis vikings du pétrin, se frottait le nez l’air songeur pour ensuite claquer des doigts en s’exclamant « Ça y est, j’ai trouvé la solution! » dans une explosion d’étoile?
