So I've been nominated as a finalist in the Saxxys, in the 'Best 30 Second Trailer' and 'Best Editing' categories. If you have a Steam account, can you please help me out and vote for my "Team Fortress 2: Product Highlights" entry here?
Well shit. It's almost Christmas and I'm suffering from a serious lack of self-gifting. As I'm on the edge of some time off from work, I thought I'd get myself a little something for Christmas. Because I suck at making fairly simple decisions I'm turning to the hive-mind that is Giant Bomb to help me out:
What is the difference between an engineer and a parasite?
An engineer builds, a parasite asks: 'Where's the dispenser?' An engineer creates, a parasite says, 'What will BLUthink?' An engineer invents, a parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of Valve...'
As previously stated in my latest update, I'm really impressed with GB's approach to encouraging healthy participation within their community. The 'quests' idea is really interesting - it's very effective at stimulating the accomplishment and reward parts of the brain.
I look forward to getting more involved with GiantBomb in the future and adding something worthwhile to the hivemind! :)
