    What have you purchased recently?

    I didn't get any special plates, I probably already look like a douchebag driving a Porsche, don't need to exacerbate the fact!

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    Just got a crazy beefy new gaming rig and started playing Skyrim. It looks amazing and loads like lightning compared to playing it on the PS3. Unfortunately, it loves to randomly lock up my computer every 5-30 minutes of play. Pretty frustrating. Every other game performs perfectly and the temps / memory on my computer all test out ok. Hopefully 1.4 will fix this for me, I haven't had a chance to try out the beta patch on steam yet.

    dear zynga

    Nothing Zynga is doing is illegal and we aren't heartbroken, angry or feeling victimized. We just couldn't pass up an opportunity to poke fun at Zynga.

    That is my fiance, we are getting married next year! She was sold separately, though I did ask how much I could get to trade her in.

    Going Abroad

    You know you could just go independent and make you own fate and work from anywhere in the world you want, moving as often (or not) as you'd like!

    fuck yeah ken you tell em !

    It is definitely difficult enough to cull out a huge segment of potential developers. The only online store that you might be able to make the case for being pretty open is XBLIG (or whatever it is called) which is still pretty limited in terms of what you can charge or do with the game system. I think a good standard for "will a lot of crazy and sometimes legendary stuff get made by unknowns for this platform" is wether or not a high-school developer can get a game onto it. Someone without a company, resources, or business sense but with a lot of time and passion. I don't really feel like that fits consoles right now, there are too many hurdles for that type of developer to get something on PSN, XBLA or Wii Ware. There could be an argument that XBLIG is a place for exactly that kind of developer, but I don't know that much about it. I do know though that the PC / Web and Apple App Store are bursting at the seams with those kinds of developers.
