The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
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!
I've got a $100 Amazon gift certificate burning a hole in my pocket. Right now, I'm thinking of grabbing a bunch of the PS2 games I never played on the cheap.
I only got a PS2 last year, so I haven't played most of the older games (beyond the classics), or even the reasonably recent ones. It would be excellent to hear some ideas about which of the older games are worth getting, as I can get a whole ton of the old games used. For instance, I'm probably getting Jak 2 and Jak 3, as they're about $8 total.
I'm not tied to any single genre, but anything co-op would be appreciated, as well as anything involving strategy that isn't a NIS title (I like them, but Phantom Brave almost killed me. I want more tactics, less oh my god level level level).
Edit: To be clear, the PS2 is also my only console whatsoever. I also have a PC, obviously, but demos tend to make me need fewer recommendations there.
