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!
A lot of people became Giant Bomb fans because of a Let's Play of Persona 4.
Which was free, they now charge a subscription for that kind of content. Which I guess is working because they are still doing it, but it still sucks that they lock so much behind the paywall now.
The endurance run of Deadly Premonition is what did it for me. After my son was born I was waking up on a daily basis around 4 am to feed him after going to bed at midnight or so. Exhausted from life I watched through the whole thing as him and I sat on the couch, him with a bottle, me with coffee. Turned me into a huge Swery fan and kept my sanity during those early months of new life.
