    It's coming tomorrow. Give unique games a chance. They reward you with fairy dust tinkles in your groin area.

    I saw 20mins or so gameplay footage of this last week over at Giantbomb and the trial and error puzzles of it seem like its something that would drive me up the wall but things such as its art style and it unique psychics engine are very appealing.

    Also :thumb  to un-expected gore! :D

    I don't want to be driven up the wall either, heheh. I'll give the trial a run first and if the gameplay isn't interesting, I'll just buy Deathspank, or wait for Castlevania.

    I saw enough to definitely warrant some time with a free trial.
    The game just oozes personality.

    Speaking of you two (Smash and Recall), I deactivated my Facebook for a while. Too many people treating FB like another shot at highschool drama.

    So no, I did not delete you guys. Tempted on several occasions, but I'd never do it, lol.

    No you didn't. If there was a LIKE button for a person, you'd be the first one to press it on me.

    I'll be back on it. I just needed a break.

    Lol, I did always comment on your stuff. Stalker, I was.


    Anyways, going to play this baby in the dark. I love the shot of the little boat with the murky background. That's dream shit right there.

    Why don't you just removed the fuckheads? Life is much easier when the shit stuff is hidden behind the layers afforded to you by the technology.

    Yeah, I'll do this. I wanted to contact facebook and suggested a "who do you want to hear from" checklist as a compliment to the "hide" function. That way, I can just check you guys, my bands, TFW, Mass Effect, and a couple of family members. And by default, it would just hides the rest. It's sad that there are more folks that I want to hear nothing about than folks that I do.

    This is the wrong thread to ask, but if you hide someone, do they know you hide them? I'm an ass, but I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings.

    Well I wasn't going to tell you that I deactivated for a little while, so when you'd check and not see me there, you'd call me crying, asking what you did wrong.

    See, Facebook could use more Smang Balls, and less, "I went to buy another Coach Purse," by old chicks from highschool with inferiority complexes.

    Speaking of Smang balls, I sent you a message on Friday to see if you wanted to do some casual SSF4 training. I was snubbed.

    heheh, I'm kidding. It was no biggy. I figured you were showing someone the thick end of Li's leg.

    I did get my controller though. I had to settle for Guile, but I'll order my Li one, as soon as funds allow.

    So this week is Limbo, and I believe Castlevania comes out in this Summer of Arcade thing. I'm definitely interested in coop with that one.

    NICE, and it's also nice that he admits that he isn't rating it high to make himself appear intellectual, like those people who love hippie movies in Austin, just so that their peers feel inferior for not liking them.
