If it's the status you want, then yeah, you'll have to wait. If it's just the FEELING you're after, then you can just hit yourself repeatedly with a hammer. That comes pretty close.

Apparently you don't quite grasp the concept of running from something. If you go in a circle you just end up where you started.

Welcome one and all. Now someone else will get tortured instead of me.

...


Wait, did I say that out loud?

Chris Pickering- the name is familiar but brain doesn't function. What stuff have you written?

Welcome people and I look froward to writing for and working with you all. I have been AG gaming since the day my dad bought me the original Police Quest for our top of the line Tandy computer.

Ahh, a kindred spirit. Except my dad brought me Leisure Suit Larry. And it was a pirated copy.

Why, that's so we can make fun of your console bias and the fact that you find Serious Sam 2 as good as COD2 ...

Oh wait, that was the stupidly titled Big Red One. Ignore me .

Haha, dont worry, COD2 on the PC recieved a MUCH higher score! Same it's such a drop in standard when it moved onto the consoles.

To get me for using pirated software, or to get him for playing LSL with his 10 year old daughter?

To his credit, he covered my eyes at all the naughty parts. And I learned at that young age why one should always use a condom.

Well sadly just a few short years later I played many portions of LSL 3 at my uncle's place. In their defense, I just as often was unable to answer all of the questions they asked. in fact I missed the "brain four" question. To this day they call me brainfour.

Welcome to all the new staff members. One of the best parts of AG is that you bring in people from all over our small planet, and you effectively use the universality to choose your staff from. It makes for a more balanced approach, and increases acceptance among the members.

Kudos to the new staff and to AG for their excellent choices.
