Video game recommendation for a lover of Halo, please!

I like the video game Halo: Combat Evolved and have played it off and on for several years, both single player and multi player mode. I would like another video to game to play that is similar to the campaign Halo: CE, but in very specific ways, but is not Halo 2 or Halo 3. [more inside]

Books about coming back to the world?

Book Recommendation Filter: Please recommend books about recovering from trauma and reintegrating back into normal life and society. Experiences like cults, prison, war, abusive relationships, etc. where the person feels isolated from "normal" people. I'm looking for fiction especially but any genre is helpful.

Recommend some engaging ethnography

This recent link on the blue reminded me how fascinating ethnography can be. Now I have a hankering for some well-written works of anthropology or sociology that offer insight on different people and different ways of life. Please recommend some good books for me! This is for "pleasure reading," so really dense jargon is a turn-off, but they don't need to be written for a popular audience.

Where should we eat?

Yet another Chicago restaurant suggestion needed: 5 adults, 2 of whom's flight is coming in this evening and we want to give them a special "Chicago" experience. Preferably in the Loop?

What adventure fiction is set in a nomadic culture?

What books and movies feature fantasy or adventure in a nomadic culture? I just watched the movie Mongol, and it really reminded me of how much I enjoyed the enjoyed the Daenerys chapters in the Song of Ice and Fire series.

I need something that really sucks for less than $150.

I've got two huskies, a black lab, one long haired cat, and two short haired cats living in my house. And I'm drowning in fur. The Dirt Devil Vision I bought two years ago has never worked decently. So I need recommendations for an affordable vacuum cleaner that can handle a ton of fur and relatively new carpet that's still shedding a bit. I can borrow my grandma's Dyson once or twice a month for superawesome vacuum times, but I also need something I can use a few times a week just to get the majority of the fur off the carpet. Difficulty: Under $150.
