The lore is great, and worth looking into. Rather than reading the books in game though, which could be a chore, I'd recommend using a website like The Imperial Library.

They have all the books on there, but they also have their own history and lore summaries written in an encyclopaedic style. Well worth your time if you're interested.

Have game developers taken back that stuff they said publicly and on the record about how much they hate working with Microsoft? If not, then I'm still out. From all accounts the entire organisation is one big clusterfuck, and I'd like to get out now while I have the chance.

I had this problem for 2 years after getting my marketing degree. Applying for several jobs a day, daily rejections - I was about to see a doctor for depression when out of the blue I got a temp job working in legal (not related to my degree at all). While I was doing that, my aunt found me a part time job tangentially related to marketing, and now a year and a half later, I'm a full time digital marketing consultant with that same company.

You need a little bit of luck, and you're going to have to work hard. I was working 3 jobs at the same time for about 3 months, and I volunteered with 4 different charities doing different things. It all paid off in the end, with a nice job, a house, and a family. Keep your head up.

Only System Shock 2 so far, waiting for flash sales or something on Rogue Legacy. Then beyond that I'll probably pick up Cart Life and Postal 2 (played a lot as a teenager, so has some nostalgia for me).

I wear socks and shoes around the house, it pisses my girlfriend off. I can't have bare feet, my feet get really sore. I have bare feet and flip flops at the moment, but that's only because it's infinity fucking degrees in the UK right now.

The Squits. We've all eaten cold pizza we found under the microwave before.

Worth it.

It's not that close to GB. If anything, it's a combination of GB and Polygon's sites.

That was my though, looks more like Polygon to me. But to be honest, don't all websites look like this nowadays?

I'd say keep it, or at least keep your favourite and most repeatable games out of the lot.

If that's really not an option though, have you considered donating to a local children's hospital? They probably won't take the more mature games, but they're probably the ones that sell for the most money anyway.

Couldn't post yesterday because of the site.

I think Ryan and Ron have designs on hitting that bottle.
