    OH GOD! When Vinny turned his pitch up just a little bit... it soundly eerily like my own voice. Makes me want to pitch down my voice so I can sound 'normal'

    uhhh... did you mean to bump this thread exactly one year later? I got really confused when the date on the thread said august 18th but it said it was posted a year ago.

    That Thomas Henshell piece was fucking incredible. There is so much truth there. It's amazing. If anyone wants to know what it is like to make games, this guy nails it.

    How about castle crashers? Not too hard to play and you can play it together?

    I'm going to be honest. When Rorie typed thingamabob I thought that was a terrible misspelling of giant bomb. Also I hope there will be bingo and/or a meat raffle.

    That Shovel Knight breakdown is amazing. Though I bet some yahoo will still show up and say "Whatever! I could have made that game for $30,000! These con artists just wanted some gold toilets!"

    Honestly, at this point I'm kind of upset that I can't play it now and judge its merits for myself. It seems removing it has generated much more press then the game had on its own.
