Thanks.

I could put up a guide on how I did it, but maybe you want to work out a bit of css-code to be used on your side of things, so users only need to copy-paste some HTML and put their names in.

Let me know, I don't mind preparing the code for you. Busy in web-development lately anyways. Punishing myself with ASP.net atm, so a bit of html/css is very welcome and easy by comparison :P

Thanks for the add Brent! I'm a long time listener of the show and just recently created at profile on the new site. The last axefactor enticed me to get more active with the community here so congrats! You and Lorin talked me into it haha

PLEASE don't let Lorin trick you into overpaying for games. Borderlands 2 is $36 at GreenmanGaming, among other deals here at my favorite site!!

I like the work so far on the new site. Keep up the good work and I know you all will be dedicated to the cause.

You should take the Pop filter off your Mic. I think it would add a cool Vader effect to the show. Just really mucusy

Thanks Brent.  Yeah, I'm just trying to make my page look as awesome as possible.  As you can tell, it's a Red Dead Redemption theme.  Still ironing out the details.

If you had doubts about Resident Evil 6, may I point out that Jake's campaign has a mini-boss with a chainsaw that:
- is powered by his heart
- has his ribs as an arm guard
- has his spine restructured to form the CHAIN.

How to breathe life into a new Zelda game: a longwinded rambling

Right so a couple of things I feel Zelda SHOULD be

1. Link should always be Male.

(Idk I just alway thought it to be a universal constant)

2. I am totally all for a female protagonist.

(Why not make Zelda the protagonist for once?)

What I was loosely thinking was:

Setting: Link is prince of Hyrule and in charge of either leading his forces against Ganon's, or Amassing an army to fight the oncoming attack.

You play as lowly village…

Thursday Throwdown: The State of the Gaming Industry Today.

EDIT: As I'm sure was probably evident to most everyone that actually took the time to read this rant, I was a bit sauced, or three-sheets, if you will. After working myself up into a drunken nerd rage it became apparent (to my inebriated mind) that I needed to share my thoughts with the world... EBC's slogan of “Cry havoc and let your voice be heard!” was a call to arms I couldn't ignore. That being said, after reading this sober, I've gone back and made a few…
