Whelp, I applied. I'm not exactly a tour-de-force in the community here (I prefer to lurk and write reviews), but here's hoping!

@rorie I do have one question regarding cover letters on the resume page:

Are you (or the GB crew) the ones talent scouting this, or is it going through CBS? I only ask because I imagine the tone of the cover letter will vary depending on who we are addressing.

Thanks!

Wow, that associated editor job is like my dream job. And I actually have all the experience requested.

*polished up resume*

Wow, that picture really got to me and I didn't think it would. Great list.

Oh man, with retro games vs collections it's a big thing. For example, I bought the Mega Man and Mega Man X collections even though I own all the games on their original systems.

I bought three copies of Darksiders for whatever reason (Xbox, Onlive (ugh), PC).

Rebought a ton of games after getting a PC, most notably Skyrim, Devil May Cry 4, etc.

I bought around five copies of Nier because I wanted the company to have money and they went under anyway. I later gifted the extras to friends (It's an amazing game, yo).

P3FES and P3P.

I've bought Resident Evil 4 on every system it's come out on, whatever that says about me.

Switching to PC exclusivity was the smartest thing I did, though, because it cuts back on dupes and the games tend to be a lot cheaper. Replacing the games from other systems is also less (since most games drop fast on Steam sales).

Oh, I've bought Phoenix Wright like three times because I KEEP LOSING IT. Ugh.

I had a game back in the War 3 days that lasted over two hours.

Both teams had Mega Creeps by the end and we couldn't push out for fear of a single hero breaking in and killing the throne. Eventually someone on our end just rushed to the other side of the map and throne-dove through their heroes until it was finally over. I believe it took two or three dives before we finally won.

Longest DOTA 2 match was probably around an hour fifteen. I'd imagine the game has been balance to a point now that it can't go over 2 hours anymore without people trying to drag it on intentionally.

I love Omniknight, but I also play a mean Dazzle. I guess I just prefer supporting (Necrolich is fun even though I swear his ult exists to steal kills...as a carry...wat).

I recently found I'm actually pretty good with Slark, and Miranda - who I've been avoiding since the DOTA 1 days because I suck with arrow - I actually can land stuns now with. Go figure.

But yeah. Omniknight is the Omnibest.

Holy shit is this real?

I...I don't even know what to say.

This is actually old (like "last year when I still had a Mac with Final Cut Pro on it" old), but I realized I never posted it to Giant Bomb and thought you guys might appreciate it.

I'll be the first to admit my singing voice isn't exactly solo-quality, but we both sang in school and college choir growing up (and play lots of Rock Band :P) so we can at least hit the right notes.

We plan on doing another one soon, so I figured I'd post this one for some feedback. :)

Also, putting one's singing on the internet is like exposing your soul. It's really bizarre and still feels awkward. Eh, whatever.

Here's a bonus for those who read the comments. I made this one last night and don't know how I'd fit it into a blog post. But it's relevant to MODERN GAMES for once!
