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!
Right now I'm reading The Men Who Stare at Goats in between sessions of being pissed off at the second volume of The Walking Dead hardcover. After that I'm going to reads me some James Joyce. Because that's what winners do.
