I think the new look is kind of dark. Like, there’s just not enough light illuminating your god-like form and snazzy background. It kind of looks as if you’re filming in a closet or something.

I also like the new song. I liked the old one too, but this one suits you and is a change of pace.

Completely off-topic, but did Assassin’s Creed break you and Conrad?

We’re worried Jim. Come home. We miss you.

There is a hard cap on the amount of premium currency they will sell you (about 100 bucks worth if not on sale) and halfway to that cap they give you an item that generates currency every day: 100 “diamonds” a day, and the most expensive item is 600 that I saw so it… Read more »

Isn’t this Zelnick guy the same guy who owns a chunk of Escapist Magazine, which might explain why that website has… seen better days, to charitably put it.
