I Wish! Then I would have him suspended in some kind of Zordon tube, atop a giant walker or something.

Got this for the kids to play with at Thanksgiving...

...Glad I did, since apparently my youngest nephew "plays" with Lego by smashing cars into anything anyone else builds, and I'm SURE as hell not letting him touch my Brikwars army after that.
Also picked up some Halo Mega Bloks "Combat Units" for Brikwaring:

Yeah, the plastic is cheap as hell, which makes for a finger-blistering good time trying to pose the sharp-handed figures or work with the moronic rod-in-hole system...

...Plus the human weapons fucking suck, being little more then sticks roughly shaped to resemble guns.

Still, there are SOME advantages:

Tiger Woods Pro Tour Golf 07 - $0.99
(These three were also buy 2 get 1 free)

I wish EA would die and let some other studio make their games.
If any other company had the Madden franchise, we'd be smashing eachother's giant robots with spiked footballs by now.

It really seems like the initially very wide pool medium-size of video game devs have been weeded out by the few very successful ones (think about Warcraft II era Blizzard, and today Blizzard, or 80s EA versus today EA) so now all that is left is super-conglomerates that own everything and tiny niche devs with under a dozen employees.

Actually the same can be said for most industries... retail, agriculture, mining.... is this just a natural consequence of economies of scale?

That makes sense. The thing is, what will happen when the small devs start making better and more popular games than the big name companies? We've already started to witness that.

Me and a few friends are making a fighting game, once the alpha is made I might post it. But if we ever got bought out, it would be by Epic games, Sega, or Nintendo.

Got these in yesterday: Image

Courtesy of Wal-Mart, two for $30. One went to the girlfriend, one is all mine. All the basic bricks a guy could want for an afternoon of classic building! These are the same as these which Lego has for $50 just in a hex box and a steal cause of Black Friday. Can you say WHAT UP? :boss:

Local Toys R Us still had Series 7 minifigs!

Galactic Badasses x4
Death Knights of Ossum x1
Buxom Viking Godess of War and Fertility x1
Aztec Plumed Ninja x1
Big Bad Wolf Jail Bait x1


Admittedly I didn't really want to get Red Riding Hood or the Aztec dude but that's ok; they are pretty cool. I mistook the Aztec guy for a Galactic Patrol and Riding Hood's basket felt like Black Knight's armor.

Aztec dude's torso and helmet are totally sweet and reusable.

Yeah he's cool; I totally agree. I'm not mad I got him and Red ... just wasn't particularly looking for them. Red's hood is pretty cool. Female minifigs are uncomon to begin with so it's nice to have more. The basket is pretty cool too.

Now the football dweeb I got a couple weeks ago? Not cool.... not cool at all :evil: Maybe I can rub off the number and dye the pads a cool color to have some neat armor?
