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!

    Still 100 trees. With this, you really can't get into relativism.

    Best way to go is to note the types of the 100 trees, buy those, find a place for them, replant. (It's important you note what kind of trees are getting cut. A lot of the tree farms the logging and paper people use are single-species, which doesn't really help the cause.)

    I have a blog. In the near future, I will also have a Kickstarter to get my club-soccer book up and running. I will let you know when I will start demanding all your money.

    But if you want to go the CO2 route, I'd have to breathe an awful lot to measure up to the output of the trucks needed to move the lumber.

    Howdy.

    Cutting down trees and building houses on 'em is a great way to fight the war against the Animal Kingdom. With every bit of nature we destruct we get one step closer to world domination.

    .....

    the point of cutting them down is to sell them because they are sought after species. its called selective logging.

    the point of clearing a section for firewood is to make room for someone to build a house.

    so unless you are advocating everyone living in a tree house i dont see your point.

    also the 200 or so trees a year he takes is nothing compared to the 11 billion cut down a year worldwide.

    My campus had squirrels and kitties. The squirrels were pretty used to people and would run right up to you and even eat something out of your hand if you were lucky. The cats were well cared for by the university and were very friendly as well.

    Can't. Black Friday is forthcoming and I work in retail. I will soon be spending most of my non-shopping time frantically trying to regain the use of my legs in time for work.

    You don't need to clearcut a lot in order to fit a home on it, and the broadacre city model is beyond unsustainable.

    We now return to the 75th Annual We're Right Awards.

    # 6. Mario Kart: Double Dash

    We finally had a chance to play eight players, two to a kart, and there's simply nothing else like it in the entire continuum of our passtime. A cooperative racing game simple in concept and pure in execution, the game is so intense race after race that it is actually physically exhausting. Nintendo makes it hard to defend them at times, when their sparkling first-party titles slow to a trickle and they make what seem like backward decisions regarding online play. I certainly don't want to give Nintendo credit for something they didn't mean to do, but play Mario Kart: Double Dash with a group of friends, together, and tell me they don't have a point.

    # 5. Final Fantasy Tactics Advance

    Strange as it is, the GameBoy Advance is becoming the go-to system for satisfying tactical combat. You could amuse yourself practically anywhere with the beloved Advance Wars series, tuck in for something with a little more meat in Tactics Ogre, or wile away the hours with Fire Emblem's balanced weapons and political intrigue. Final Fantasy Tactics Advance stands above, combining depth and accesibility with a light story and SquareEnix production values for an accomplished tactical game, a remarkable portable experience, and a great sequel.

    # 4. Soul Calibur 2

    What's to say, really. What seems at first glance like a stock retelling of the Dreamcast classic unfolds like some origami creature into strange dimensions, revealing itself as subtle, elegant, and modern. It ruled our life for months, first at import and then again for domestic, and it is seeing yet another resurgence. Some games are classics the second you pop them in the tray - Soul Calibur 2 will grace televisions for years to come.

    Now that it's the twenty sixth and all Christmas mysteries have been revealed, it's time to go back to being anti-social. Perhaps you're stuck at the parents' house, as I am, forced to make due with an ancient Dell possibly unearthed in an archeological dig. What you need are lean games that will forgive older hardware and wear the rough edges off family misery.

    In this regard, Addicting Games can absorb as much time as you need it to. Of course, Popcap has ever been our truehearted companion - their recent Rocket Mania (web or download version) can do the job, but the even more recent Zuma is almost perfectly equipped for zero-commitment, time-wasting duty. Breaking as it does into a market saturated with Mayan-themed puzzle games featuring stone amphibians, perhaps its mixture of Bust-A-Move and Marbles will help it stand out.

    Here's the one that might keep you up at night: Star Chamber. If you enjoyed games like Galactic Civilizations or Master Of Orion (X), star empire type stuff, I have a feeling you will be reasonably intrigued if not seized abruptly, filled with glistening eggs as Star Chamber clutches you in the dark.

    I read Bruce Geryk's passionate review of Star Chamber late one night, downloaded it immediately and ran gleefully through the tutorial. The game itself is free, just an eleven meg download - that's not how they get you. Here's how they get you: it's a card game. A collectible one no less, with a game board that represents a star system and and worlds which are useful to varying degrees. So you can play it online and solo with what amounts to starter decks, or you can hit their Card Store to purchase virtual boosters, boxes, or tickets to enter online tournaments. Alternately, subscribers can receive a few packs and tournament entries each month for about six bucks. At any rate, those are not matters you need to grapple with at the moment. I just wrapped up my first game, and I can tell you that right from the outset it's more than enough to keep your hand on the mouse.

    (CW)TB out.

    telling everyone you'd drowned
