Glad to see my stuff featured in here as usual. Even better, a Community Spotlight on my birthday.

Good content all around.

Brad has a Formspring now? Hot damn! Also, that Batman banner is nice.

I am going to have to work harder on these lists. I get asked for one the same time every week and just throw any old thing together. Maybe I should jump on that Alexis Is All Up In Your Profile Page thread and ask him for better list support so more people will make them.

Also if anyone was following the Temple of Elemental Evil debacle: I'm done and have moved on, but VGK is still at around the halfway point last I heard. If you're in the mood for a tough turn-based D&D game and think you could catch up to a guy constantly distracted by weird 20 year old Japanese games. you could always continue the fight from where I left off.

Ha, wow you just managed to slip in my review as soon as I linked it on my status. Cheers for that <3

Actually, I'm already in the Temple. I just haven't posted anything else yet because I don't want readers (or me) to be overwhelmed. I have a pace to maintain! I'll share this teaser video, but that's about it, at least for now.

@Video_Game_King: That serving wench pickpockets you as soon as you go in there, and the item she takes appears to be random. She stole a pair of Boots of Elvenkind (which have a bonus that aids thieves, ironically) while I was still wearing them, somehow. As weird things that happen with her go, though, I think you have me beat.

I'm well aware of that. I've seen her steal deer antlers from Falior a few times, and she thought I wouldn't catch her. Unfortunately, I had to load that save again just so she'd be caught.

Well, I'm on here, with my weird meta commentary on the role of Paladins in video games. So that's cool. I should really try to write more often. I mean, I was one of the 3 people who enjoyed the Might and Magic: Heroes VI part of the TNT. I could probably write something about that.

I demand a recount!

Good job ZombiePie and thanks for having my blog here.

Posted by Breadfan

Random, I know, but does anybody remember the thread posted about Steam games played vs. Steam games owned? I've been looking for it, but can't find it.

Posted by Claude

Let's do some checking and see what's been going on. Thanks ZP.

I am really slacking on wiki's, if I don't create pages for minor Banjo-Kazooie characters who will!

reminds me that I need to create more lists

Oh god please do. The list feature is one of those things that when users put in the effort they can create amazing things. I almost thought about doing something like the "Blog Initiative" but for lists.

That would work if there was some type of list community. As is, though, you'd only have Mento for your...uh...Shrek Photoshop.

I don't do lists not do I blog....I focus all my attention to wiki editing and posting....anyways good work as always pie.

Posted by ArclightBorealis

I already do a weekly blog, and that AVP2 page was the first time in a while since I used the wiki tools since Portal 2 was announced. Maybe I'll do a list.

Maybe...most likely not, but maybe.
