Top Man Ethan has plans to roll out mini Wikia Websites using Whiskey Media tech for individual Game Franchises or major video game series. If you have any games that would fit having such sites or would like to manage/moderate one join Google+ and let out a yelp over here.

Why does my name change from the first to second? I've read about it but I'm still not sure what's happening -__-;; Thanks for the props. I have something to do during downtime again =D

Huzzah, another review featured. Thank you.

Posted by ArbitraryWater

Well, my Invisible War blog is on here. That's good, I guess.

Edited by Mastercheesey

Thanks for the mention.

That's all you're giving me? I've seen much stupider things. Hell, I've done much stupider things.

@Video_Game_King: Like getting into some dude's car then getting out the other side rather than just walking around the whole thing?

@Video_Game_King How can I be sure that you're from the moon, much less its monarch?

Eh, I'll have something planned for the end of 2012. I just want to fuck with you guys, and it'll be pretty cool (at least for me). Oh, and I'm not gonna put a giant goddamn face on it.

I love these blogs, kudos again

Edited by takashichea

What an ironic banner! Congrats everyone! Lots of blogs to read and check out. Sweet!

May I post a link to a wiki page that I was working on for past three weeks in next week's spotlight? It's Oscar from Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn. I wish I had more time to do some wiki edits on GB.

Thanks ZombiePie!

@Hailinel:

Congrats on getting 100,000 wiki points! It's nice to see a fellow rpg fan who shares the same passion in Fire Emblem.

Wrote a thing. It happens. Getting harder to find stuff for JC to do, I'd better beat Deus Ex soon.

Edited by Video_Game_King

Well, I started this today, because I don't know a bad idea when I see one. Oh, and I did this earlier.
