    Remember the whole Jeff Gerstmann/ Gamespot thing?

    You know a few moths ago Jeff gives Kane & Lynch a not glowing review and then got fired?

    Well he’s got a new sight up and running. http://www.giantbomb.com/ It’s not in full swing yet but he and his bro’s are posting and they have a podcast going that includes taste testing energy drinks.

    Back in the day Jeff was one of the sys-op on the BBS my computer hosted. Haven't talked to him in years and years.

    Even back then he was a friend of a friend. I can only remember hanging around with him 3 times and only one of those times was a one on one thing. He came over to copy some files over for the BBS and it was... awkward. There was very much the "just let me download hese and get out of here" vibe.

    I might shoot him an e-mail or something like "It's DoC SmootH form the SOC I-LOC (707) foo, represent!".

    Ok, first I got it from Gamefly, B: yes it's simple but as a Pixar fan sort of fun, but most importantly ACHEVMENT POINTS! Gimme-gimme-gimme!

    Heh, you might change your mind once you have to use the camper vans 'special fuel'. For a camper van, the thing moves bloody fast.
