    Being pedantic here, but shouldn't it be "any more" and not "anymore"?

    On a quick search, "anymore" is in Merriam-Webster, but they seem to only show examples using it in a time-related sense, rather than in reference to additional quantities, so maybe?

    If you're curious about my icon; it's an update of the early Lego Castle theme's "Black Falcons" faction.

    I'm no expert on these matters (at all, so I'm open to being corrected) but my understanding is that MaryAmelia is correct. I'd write, "I'm not going to play games with you anymore" or "I'm not going to play any more games with you".
    Edited to add: I'm aware my two phrases don't match word for word exactly what was said in the comic above, I'm just using them as examples of the contexts of "anymore" compared to "any more".

    In that first panel, Tycho could almost touch his feet without bending down

    I wish PA would adopt the system some editors at Marvel used for awarding No-Prizes. If you point out the error and can satisfactorily explain why it isn't actually an error, you win.

    Dropmix looks pretty cool. It also doesn't require any sense of rhythm.

    I just read the newspost and that sounds cool as hell.

    Apparently it's supposed to be officially out but most stores don't actually have it yet, and won't until later this week?

    I don't know, physical distribution is a shitshow sometimes.

    Poor Gabe. He's still waiting for Photoshop Hero to be released.

    I still don't know how playing Dropmix actually works. And I watched it at PAX (and read the newspost). The website isn't any help whatsoever. I know you place cards representing different components of a song, but does the music matter in any way? Does a keyboard track have to follow a bass track? Do you just need to place the component you have the least of on the board? Could I play it with the sound off (like you can with Guitar Hero)?

    Oh yeah, they showed off the tutorial in the actual app, didn't they?

    Do we have a Dropmix thread anywhere? I'm not even sure where it should go though. G&T I guess.

    I mean, it's a card game that uses an app, so it could also go in CF.

    Dropmix seems like a game I'd have a fantastic time playing exactly three times.

    What is this I don't even.
