LOL I was just watching Enemy of the State, starring Will Smith, and at the end of the movie, when Will and his wife are watching the news, their son, who is sitting between them, is reading a magazine. The mag is folded so you can't see either of the covers, but the page facing the camera clearly says "Gamesday" at the top, in black letters, on a yellow "shield".

No real point to this post, but I thought I'd point it out, and ask if anybody else knows of such "references" for one of our most beloved hobbies.

 (Edit: I just took a closer look, and it is definitely a WD; The page also says "Golden Demon", under the gamesday, logo.)

The idea is that it takes extra effort and time to write properly, and they’d rather save the time. If you can still be understood, what’s the harm? While most of the time a sloppy post CAN be understood, the use of proper grammar, punctuation, and spelling is generally seen as respectable and desirable on most forums. It demonstrates an effort made to be understood, and to make your post an easy and pleasant read. By making this effort, you can often elicit more positive responses from the community, and instantly mark yourself as someone worth talking to.

Will Smith plays Warhammer. Vin Diesel plays D&D, and 40k too, I think.

I've heard rumors that Bruce Willis does too.

Back in the day when I used to play Evercrack, I knew of a lot of professional athletes that would also play. It was easy for them to carry a lap top with them to away games, so they could play when not at the game and not do anything to get into trouble. If I'm not mistaken, I believe that Barry Zito used to play, though I know a number of MLB players did.

Maybe Games Workshop will be bought out by the Church of Scientology and there will be new races based on the fiction of L. Ron Hubbard.   John Travolta and Tom Cruise can be special characters and there will be a 4th core game - Battlefield Earth.

I feel ill just thinking about it.

Kinda common knowledge, but Robin Williams plays Chaos, and wins a lot because he makes his opponents laugh so much they make mistakes. Now that's evil.

Funny you say that.  I was watching it two days ago as well, and noticed it for the first time to.  Was a little suprising.

I also read somewhere that kevin smith and jason mewes are avid WFB players, or at least used to be..

The fellas in Fear Factory are big into online gaming as well and I've known folks who claim to have played with/against them on Xbox Live. I heard about the major league folks playing EQ also, and I read one of em got tickets to one of his games for his whole guild at one point. Dunno how true that was though..

Celebrity types are just normal folks who happen to be on TV for a living. They play games and watch Lost and eat pizza from Dominos just like the "little people" do I think maybe you don't hear too many saying "yeah I love playing world of warcraft!" because if they do, because of who they are, it will be though of as an endorsement and there's so much legal crap to worry about in the entertainment biz it's disgusting. That or they just don't want the world to know that they're nerdy too
