  1. "Adults Should Read Adult Books" - Joel Stein

    I think people should read whatever the hell they feel like reading. I probably read "adult" books most of the time, but I also love the Harry Potter books and thoroughly enjoyed Hunger Games. Haven't read Twilight, and never will - but I don't necessarily hold it against people for liking these kind of things. I think you need a mix. I love reading books that challenge me, or make me think, or present complex, rich worlds. Sometimes, though, I just want a fun ride.
  2. Leisure Suit Larry in "gimme your money"

    I loved the Leisure Suit Larry games when I was younger, but.. do they hold up now? Not sure if I'll find them as hilarious as I did when I was younger. Jane Jensen, on the other hand.. I might have to buy into that one. Argh, I need to stop blowing all of my cash on these Kickstarters.
  3. Your first gaming device...

    This beauty was my first - The Apple II c. I played a ton of Oregon Trail and the various Carmen Sandiego's on this thing. Gotta love 5.25" floppies.
  4. New people: Read this, say hi.

    Hey! I'm somehow not surprised to see you here. You keep popping up in the GAF Idle Thumbs Kickstarter thread.
  5. Idle Twits

    Call me... @Greg4cr
  6. New people: Read this, say hi.

    Hi, I'm another long-time reader. Been meaning to sign up for some time, but the Kickstarter finally gave me that kick in the butt. I'm a (somewhat retired) game journalist - most of my work was as an editor on 4 color rebellion and a news writer stint for The Escapist. These days, I'm neck deep in work on a Computer Science PhD. Yay.
