Nightwatch Series

Post by Frostbite »

I picked up Night Watch on a whim when the Borders by my house was going out and had a huge sale. That was a great decision. I just recently found the third in the series Twilight Watch and I have to say they are some amazing books. Has anyone by chance read this series?

Please don't reply about the movies, I for one haven't seen them and the trailers have completely turned me off from wanting to see them.

Hey, almost-two-year-old-thread, I totally read Night Watch, but I didn't know there were four of them!
Maybe I ought to pick them up. I don't know about "amazing book," but the first one was a fun read.
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

Oh man, Altered Beast was such a badass game. You get to play as a guy who could kick and bunch the crap out of boars and cerberuses and if you punched or kicked a blue cerberus a floating ball made of STEROIDS and TESTOSTERONE would pop out that you could catch and it would BULK YOUR PANSY ASS UP usually ripping your shirt in the process like The Incredible Hulk Hogan and if you got three such Testosteroid orbs you would turn into a FUCKING WEREWOLF and go up against the boss that was this weird giant head on a stalk that shot out smaller heads and holy damn that game was a trip and a half.

The boss was also Gandhi, before he turned into that other thing.

Also when you get one of those testosteroid orbs your character would shout out POWER UP.

Man I've read like two of dem books and I believe I even read a third. Shit was so cash. But yeah, actually pretty sweet books. I love that universe and how good and evil are represented.

I'm never really a big fan of "evil for evil's sake" types of villains, but they were kind of peripheral a lot of the time, so it didn't bother me. Much.

Evil for evil's sake really just translates into idiot who thinks wrong is the legit right, even though people call it wrong, (because they are on the actual side of right).

Evil for evil's sake only works if you're proving a point, and even then you're doing it for a reason that could be called correct.

I think that's the actual opposite of evil for evil's sake.

No, evil is an alignment, but a person that is evil does not think that wrong is wrong. Typically the anti hero who isn't actually saving people, that's all.

Dark type jokes would be too obvious, huh?

Anyways, there would be two choices, called "good" and "evil". We hold good as the side that is right, the side that should be followed, and the side worth fighting for. A person on the "evil" side would hold the same conceptions, merely of their own ideology. They aknowledge that they are "evil", but evil means as much of a bad term as black people saying the n word to one another.

Regardless, almost all actions are motivated by gaining a reward or deferring punishment to themselves. They truly are of an alignment to a side, and the word means other things besides pokemon and D&D.
