I had written a long thing about how Jeff might be my role model and/or hero, that he seems to have his shit figured out at such a level that we would all be lucky to be even close to. Ended up deleting it cause it felt too wanky, but know that the sentiment is there.

@bisonhero: I remember one of the jokes when Karen last showed up (to get shocked) was that she had been on more GB stuff than Dave since he left.

Man, remember when we all thought Dave was actually going to hang out around the office like he said he would in his goodbye letter? Stuff about pulling a Whitta and just hanging around even though they don't pay him anymore.

Like, I know dude has a wife and kid and two dogs and a startup and moved to the suburbs, but he got our hopes up! He should have just pulled the bandaid when he left and said that he'd never be back. Rorie has done a fine job as the new-Dave

I remember also being confused at that "Madison finds out who the killer is" twist. Read a David Cage interview a while later that basically tried to handwave it by saying that while Madison may have never met the killer, WE had and thus the scene was built to be as if WE had discovered who the killer was at that moment.

And keep that in mind, I liked Heavy Rain. It's not amazing, but it's kinda cool.

Also, gotta love how you said you had to toss a lot of footage, and this time the video is even longer

I remember your PAX East video! It was incredibly intimidating!

Stop making the rest of us video enthusiasts look bad!

It's cute that Notch thinks he can somehow put the genie back in its bottle, go back to being a struggling game dev who does game jams, and have everyone pretend things are the way before Minecraft. EVERYTHING he touches will have his reputation on it. Everyone will want to play the next thing from Notch, the Minecraft guy. He can't go back to being a struggling artist along with other REAL struggling artists with 2.5 billion dollars in his back pocket. Whether he chooses to live in it or not, the ivory tower is visible to everyone around him.

I mean, you don't have a time machine to stop yourself from buying the system before there were any games you wanted to play, so I would either sell it and buy the system again when you have a game you want to play on it (probably get decent used machines from like minded individuals) or just hold onto it and wait till the games you want to play are out on it.

Never buy a thing unless there are games you want to play on it.

Can...can I submit a write in candidate for "Always"? Sonic has never really been fun for me. He goes too fast and I can't even see what I'm "doing", so it ends up that I'm not doing much of anything at all besides looking at colors.

Also, I recall the gang liking South Park a lot. Maybe that will win GOTY?
