  1. Aside from Iron Man the other supers with mustaches just look like Axe Cop doing Cosplay. I'm OK with that.

    And of course Shaun would be submitting news about ladies' dresses.

    Also I've been following the Hawkeye initiative too. Freaking hilarious. Along the same lines did you read about the #1reasonwhy hashtag that was (is?) trending on Twitter about inequality in the gaming industry?

      And I actually stole the dresses link off pf a FB post he made to your wife. ;)

      I haven't heard about the hashtag ... what's the haps?

  2. As awesome as it would be to have all the Doctors, nothing will live up to Rich Morris' The Ten Doctors webcomic epic in terms of plot.

  4. Can't wait to get my Ouya. I think the one they're shipping on Dec. 28th is only for developers, though. The rest of us peons have to wait 'til March. D:

    1. Yes, dev kits only which, from what I read, really aren't much different since it's all open source anyway. They were not clear on what makes these special.
