Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Dear 2010, GTFO

Tomorrow is New Year's Eve.

343q98h.jpg

Though it's pretty much an arbitrary marking of yet another trip around the sun, we as a peoples tend to look to times such as this as a moment to mark our personal failings behind us, and look forward to better times ahead. A time of hope, where we find room for improvement and, at least for a short while, promise to ourselves that "I can do this!". New Year's Eve is also a time where many folk perform some of their silliest, dumbest, and most regrettable actions of the year prior or ahead, depending on their poor drunken timing.

Let us discuss our plans for the new year. The mighty 2011 is near, and I would know how you think to treat this next chapter in your lives.



For myself, I don't have any resolutions, as I'm not really starting anything new. In every way that I hope to better myself, it's a continuation of plans that started a long time before the new year. I'm starting school on the 4th, which has me very excited. I graduated high school in 1998, so starting college has both feelings of hope & fear tied to it. My first step towards a degree in journalism. I also have some medical issues to take care of. Lingering problems from a bicycle wreck back in July. I'm hopeful that by summer, I can have everything taken care of and will be able to spend my summer and fall playing soccer and riding bikes in addition to my schooling. On a geopolitical note, I'm particularly concerned about the Korea situation, and I'm hoping that 2011 will see at least some real, tangible advancement towards reunification.

Also, for some of us, instead of the general going to bars or parties, will be hanging out in tinychat.com/seplusplus to perform our portion of silly New Year's stupidity, so feel free to drop in.

    I'm off at 6pm tomorrow and I'm off on Saturday but I have no friends here and we have 2 kids so I guess I'll drink the 6 pack of beer in my fridge and watch the ball drop.

    Woo...

    I'm not doing anything, having a quiet night in with my mum and dog. I'm pretty glad though I've fulfilled every single one of my resolutions for this year.

    Looking forward to next year with the start of art school and everything.

    I'm gonna try and give up soda next year. Also will find a part-time job and dedicate myself to school.

    And if I can fit in starting a website to talk about videogames that I like, that'd be cool too.

    As for resolutions, I lost about 30 pounds last year so this year I'd like to work on building some muscle.

    I need to find a new, real job or really start writing more.

    I need to start writing more and finishing the things I've

    Build muscle isn't what I mean. More, get in shape. I've got quite a bit of muscle under my fat.

    One of the big things we need to figure out next year is where the hell we want to live. Terre Haute, IN doesn't cut it but I don't really know where else to go.
