This is Alexander Arts and I am posting on your 'comment wall.' OH SNAP!

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.

I joked with Lorin that if he could convince you to play Borderlands, he might be able to get you play Battlefield too lol. And being left behind by your friends in a game, I know that feel brother :,(

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.

Hands on from San Diego Comic-Con 2014

It's a truly odd year at the SDCC game wise(hence the non-gaming pic that was more exciting in all honesty). It truly is a vanilla year for games as bizarre choices and just an average effort of marketing is on display. From the recycled demo of Bayonetta 2 from the previous year to the complete absence…

EpicBattleCry - Are Alien: Isolation, Dragon Age: Origins, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor & More too much of a good thing?
