You know what, forget it.

I work in an industry with tradesman, i've spent a long time dealing with men pretending to be macho for the sake of not being seen as "nerds" or "dorks" by their peers.

I can smell it on you a mile away Dan, give it a rest. It's sad and it's arrogant. Your on a freaking video games website, your in it as much up to your eyeballs as every one else.

I'm about your age, I'm happily married, I work in a difficult field for tough guys. I think Avatar the last airbender is cool.

Edit - Giantbomb is one of the few places i can go to celebrate my hobby without people attempting to belittle over their own insecurites. Sorry Dan it's wearing thin.


Thanks to Jason for being so indepth.

Dan, don't give away the strategies on how to play the game before you even start it. It's a lot more fun to let people figure out that stuff on their own and you impose "rules" that are not even necessarily true, e.g. you're a wizard because you rejected that mission.

It got a lot better towards the middle, Mary was awesome.

What other Professor Layton-like game is Vinny talking about at 8.20?

Vinny: "Puzzle Quest or Puzzle... What was the one? With Like euh... Where you find the bubblegum?"

Dan: "I assume there's going to be more variety, so far it's been a lot of go do six of this, go to four of this, do eight of this, there's this one guy, he's real scary... I hope that it does."

Oh Dan... You sweet innocent soul.

A challenge to the GiantBomb community: find a free klondike game on the android app store that doesn't eat your soul.

I found one, eventually, after going through through 50+ games of klondike. Developers have no qualms with throwing fullscreen ads at you while in the middle of your game. This new google rule doesn't fix that.

I wish there was a way to filter "truly free" games on the android app store. I don't mind ads in my games but fullscreen ads in particular are very annoying.

The klondike game I found was called "Smooth Klondike" by the way. It's regular ass klondike, no clutter of menu's, has landscape support and no ads surprisingly.

I sent in the Gametap question. I tried out the service shortly after I sent that question. It's ok, not great. There is no guarantee that your controller will work which is kindof bad. It did allow me to try out a lot of games that I would never buy for myself. It also has some games that aren't available on Steam anymore (like Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Athena).

When you want to cancel your subscription you need to send an e-mail to support one week before it's renewed with your id number and username which is kinda meh.

I like her, she's cool. The isometric viewpoint is a bit off a turnoff though. Shooters like that all feel a bit samey to me.

Oh, I thought I fell asleep at the end, glad it just crashed and I didn't miss anything!
