    How old is Max now? 3?

    Seems like just yesterday. But really, I'm closer to my little sister than the Caravella Spawn are gonna be to each other in age.

    He's around 2 years and maybe six months?

    I only know this because Anya was born about 2-3 months after Max, I think.

    Now I'm just imagining Vinny trying to keep it a secret in real life, just holding an open umbrella in front of his wife's stomach for the last month...

    I still picture Max as a newborn but no by now he's gotta be walking around and talking and being a kid.

    Me and both my siblings were three years apart (to the day in one case) and even that seems larger than usual.

    I've been pretty busy the past few days. Why is this going to be the last giant bomb thread for a while?

    Currently getting all the mech goodness via Front Mission 3 and Titanfall.

    I really want to make a mech wargame someday.

    And like whenever my bro talks to me about his most nostalgic childhood memories it's all about me and him and our other two siblings playing GameCube and how when mom wasn't around I totally let him in while I was playing Resident Evil and I'd turn off the lights for maximum fear and how I was the coolest big bro ever for doing that

    and it's funny because to me those moments are clearly me being a borderline irresponsible ridiculously stupid teenager doing a thing because whatever but no to him it's foundational precious moments.

    (he didn't grow fucked up from being exposed to M-rated games if anyone's worried, he's a really good kid)

    There's a video Vinny made shortly after his first kid was born that was just him in his home slowly going mad but I can't find it

    Fake edit and then typing that made me remember something that helped me find it

    Thing is I'm pretty sure originally I made sure he wasn't in the room and wouldn't let him in before playing M-rated stuff, but in retrospect that just made the parking garage (our parking garage was the living room) Simon's Mysterious Cave of Awesome Secrets to him whenever the door was closed. So when I stopped caring he must've been so fucking psyched I was letting him in to Club Zombies And Fucked Up Shit.

    I think it'd be nice if people would make threads about individual threads they're playing, but I'm aware that my preference for that thinking isn't universal. For me as a user, I'd rather see a thread about Tomb Raider than a 80 page threads where maybe people talked about Tomb Raider at some point. For recurring threads, I also like to be able to see a really specific niche that the thread is fulfiling. The Steam thread for example, is chatty and off-topic in a way that sets it apart from the G&T one, but is still clearly about Steam and PC games in general.

    But yeah, anyway, this isn't punitive and it may come back. I mean, it may not, depending on how things go, but I am not planning this as a permanent thing by any means. A certain amount of this job involves changing a thing and then noting what happens.

    Which is fair.

    Video games are dangerous.

    Treat all video games like they are loaded.

    Never point a video game at a person.

    honestly if I did anything it'd probably be best to make a general mashup thread

    I got a better story than that

    I was conceived when my cousin was born, which was in late February.

    My dad apparently went all "my little brother has a baby now and that's kinda fucked up, gotta catch up".

    Also my birthday is the day after my mom's and I was born at 12:15 AM so I was almost a birthday baby.

    She went into labor while out dining with my dad for her birthday, too.

    speaking of troy baker, i had a dream last night in which I learned that the butthole dubstep neighbor I've feuded with was actually troy baker

    i then spent a good bit of the dream reflecting on the fact that it was not some random dude but, in fact, troy baker himself who had called me a "short shorts [homophobic slur]" and told me to "go back to hoboken"

    it was a weird dream

    i'm sure troy baker's alright
