That's a pretty interesting concept... Makes me want to play some of those games you mentioned if only to test your speculations!

Only thing that comes to mind for me is Half-Life 2. I know it's just part of the campaign, but when your gravity gun gets supercharged, it's just plain awesome/exciting. Easily the most excited I ever got about just a weapon in a game!

You seem weirdly upset by a card game that is several years old... "Don't like it, don't play it!" is my motto!

My group of friends definitely got WAY more than one play out of it. We still bust it out occasionally, but yeah, eventually you "get" the joke or something. To be fair, that's how a huge number of games are. Eventually you just move on to something else.

I know zero about Tempkin other than his appearances on GB and he seemed like a funny dude then!

Guitar Hero Van Halen the drums part.

Wut? I think you mean Def Leppard...? The drummer from Def Leppard only has one arm!

You made me curious enough to look it up. This is rankings by traffic. No clue about the money/revenue end of things. http://www.ebizmba.com/articles/video-game-websites

TL;DR: #1 is IGN, #3 is GameSpot, #9 is Giant Bomb

Out of curiosity, what'd you mean by "we probably don't have much to worry about"? I wasn't planning on worrying in the first place! hah

Skippy, Doc, Ginny, Lurby, Wubby, and Ollie.

Edit: I don't actually have 6 dogs. Ginny and Ollie are current dogs, and the rest have passed.

Uhh, what? It seems suuuuper obvious that she's making a joke about replacing Jon Stewart on the Daily Show.

It's amazing and terrible. I'm honored and disgusted to have my initials in there.

14.3 million. Do you think Michael Mann will ever make another great movie? He's getting to that age where the odds are beginning to turn against him. I'll always have heat and collateral, I guess...

And The Insider, which is incredible! Unfortunately, I have to agree with you... I really can't imagine him creating another gem.

That said, I'm still guessing a little high: $20 mil

How unexpected! Super curious what prompted this/where he'll end up...

Thanks for all the scoops!
