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!
OK, it's now been a week since the gift I sent to my santee was listed as delivered. I'm concerned. Santee if you received it and are just waiting til Christmas to open it, please just let me know it arrived. Actually, now that I think about it, you may not know it's from me if you haven't opened it...so, if any Santee's have received gifts and haven't opened them yet, could you say so? I kinda get paranoid about these things.
On an unrelated note, but still Christmas oriented, I received an early Christmas gift from a friend (not my Secret Santa however, they already gifted me some awesomez), and I feel I must share it with you all. I got a ForceFX Lightsaber, styled after Luke Skywalkers' in RoTJ!
Edit: Still waiting for Secret Santa @Mint to stand up and take a bow...you know you wanna, don't fight it.
Like, when I feed him his normal pellets, he'll get little crumbs stuck to his face. Then he wipes them off like a little kid wiping his mouth on his sleeve, dragging his whole arm across his mouth.
I WILL PAY YOU A MILLION DOLLARS FOR A VIDEO OF THIS.
Disclaimer: I do not have a million dollars. But I want to see it.
Due to your apparent excitement and the numerous people who agree with you, I will definitely try to get this on film. I have to say, it's one of the most downright adorable things I've ever seen. Another thing he does that is awesome/hilarious is when he tries very hard to break out of his tank; he has a whole procedure and damned if he doesn't get close.
Could it be?!?! It couldn't possibly be....a handmade Wheatley!!!! (back from SPACE) and scared Kush away
After fleeing from Wheatley, Kush discovers some new awesomez reading material..
All that reading tuckered out this adventurous turtle. Fortunately, Santa @Mint included some delicious new treats for Kush! MMMmmmm, Shrimpy!
Thanks so much @Mint for this barrage of awesome gifting! I can only assume you made the Wheatley and painting yourself, so when I say you're crafty, there's an awesome double-meaning. Crafty because you make awesome things and crafty because I still have no idea how some of my gifts were delivered in person and some were mailed O_o You crafty goose. Also, Kush is extremely weird about not eating stuff when he is outside of his tank, but when I put him back in, I gave him some of the treats and he DEVOURED them. He absolutely loves them, and wishes me to send on his thanks. And I thank you for including something for him, that was hella cool. I will post pics of when the Lego set is complete if ya like, but I will have to wait til my exams are done (Tuesday) before I get started
Please excuse me not taking pics of the actual unwrapping Santa @Mint, I'm afraid I'm a bit of a little kid when it comes to presents and ripping them open immediately. Plus my turtle is skittish and it would just be damn near impossible to set it all up LOL.
Something just occurred to me..
when I got my first batch of giftage (some of you may remember the circumstances in which it was delivered), the car I saw pulling away in haste was a civilian car, implying they were local. However, the postcard I received a couple days ago, was from Ottawa. Very perplexing.. o_O
