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!

    ADM is a huge company right? Where does it fall on the list of big companys? Before of after Mircosoft?
    I understand it's vast, owns great stretches of the midwest, and has bought out many other domestic producers. I suck balls at googling or parsing financial data, though, so I can't really answer your questions with any precision.
    The giant agricultural companies are good at keeping their heads down. Do they run or ads or anything?
    I know they run spots on NPR where they talk pretty much exclusively about their soy business. Go figure. I think I've seen a few TV spots that look basically like Chevy commericials with Copeland-esque music swelling behind images of hard-working guys in overalls and swaying amber fields.

    Oh student loans company, what the hell is wrong with you? Does every customer advisor really have their own seperate customer database or something? At least this time I got a possible solution to problem of being bombarded with "Oh my god, repay us now!" letters when I'm still at fucking uni.

    Last year I was getting a letter at the end of every semester: "now that you've graduated, it is time to start repaying your loans . . ."

    Graduated huh? Awesome. Send me the degree and I'll send you your money.

    It kills me that the game is $90. I cannot fathom what makes them think it's worth $10 more than the ps2 version.

    I have vanquished the great and terrible demons of paperwork. Vanquished them with fire.

    The solution to any tedious paperwork related problem is to simply burn down the office.

    It's Hi-Def! And 5.1 surround sound!

    And I don't have a PS2.

    Frankie pretty much demanded that I get it at launch, and buy two controllers. I'm pleased that she's showing an interest in my hobby.

    edit: but yeah, not a whole lot of space in my place to dive around and shit.

    That guy seems to think so. The fact that his example is a thread in which someone asks a fucking stupid question and is ridiculed for it isn't helping his case.

    I know, and I want it as well, but there's just something about being that close to $100 for one game that turns me off.

    I'm mainly thinking about the glass table. That would also lead to the emergency room.

    I never played the Sims. I think it´s not for me, but probably I´d be hopelessly addicted. It´s like Viva Pinata in that sense.

    I should! I lost all of your Sims when my computer died, so I'd have to start afresh.

    Your parcel still hasn't arrived :(

    Good luck, skippy!

    Oh man, Tesco are so awesome for sponge puddings. They do one-person sized puddings in packs of two, for cheap, and they have golden syrup sponge and chocolate melt. Mmm. Taste almost as good as my mother's, but are cheaper than having to buy the separate ingredients and steam one myself.

    Do you see this? Was I wrong about the crazies loving criminal justice?
    which is why you get some of my people coming over from the motherland realizing that you'll only get a limited span of time in prison on average, and then get out. Hell, you don't even have to stop your illegal activities on the inside either. It's a bonus. Free Room and Board, a little primer on business management, and then hit the ground running. It's almost like finishing school to the career criminal.
