    I am really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays..

  7. I’m not sure exactly why but this site is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

    It may be a stand alone game, but there’d be a wet spot in my pants if they made a Shadow of the Colossus reboot

    Battletoads?!  Haven’t we been punished enough?  If anyone out there is unaware of how broken that game is, don’t bother playing it.  Just look up Proton Jon’s four-player Battletoads race on YouTube.

    Pity about the octopus, all that intelligence and skill, and they are really gentle creatures, but they only live two or three years at most. Very sad.

  14. yes to battletoads!!! 

  15. Welcome Kyle. Is there some kind of hazing that goes on for FNG’s?

      Hazing? I’m trying to figure just how long the “new guy” gets before Jessica, you know, “gives him the Dan signoff”…like, with bullets. Or a knife. Or a crossbow.
