As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
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!
After 700 years alone... (Wall-E, new Pixar movie)
The trailer looks very cute and I love the main character's animation. I've always had a soft spot for robots, including Wall-E's predecessor Johnny 5 (I mean, look at the eyes and treads, this guy is clearly a baby Short Circut robot).
Here are a couple of still shots:
Awww! Look how kewt he iz!
I'm excited for this movie, it looks really cool and I dig the sci-fi premise. There is a lot of opportunity for expressiveness in our mechanical friend as well and this movie will probably be several times better than Robots was, even though I liked that movie's character designs for the most part.
