awww this is really cute and a fantastic rebuttal. 
Honey Maid released a glorious response to homophobic idiots who didn't like the snack company's ads depicting gay couples with their children.

Evolution RTS Get-Together 1v1 Tournament!

It's that time! Mark your calendars, because this Saturday at 10AM PST (5PM GMT) is the first post-steam launch 1v1 tournament!

Featured will be existing players from the spring community, such as Ikinz, Anarchid, TheSponge, TheMooseIsLoose and CommonPlayer, as well as some of the newcomers via Steam such as, Qaenthalis, ShirtStain, and KoyoteKamper!

The entire event will be streamed live at http://www.evolutionrts.info/stream
I myself will be casting, and there may be a co-caster helping me out, but that is not nailed in certainty yet.

Another night of extremely hard work pays off!

So Smoth and I got together tonight to do some serious work on +Evolution RTS in order to implement his materials code.

This will allow players to choose their own unique color schemes in-game, and even create their own! You can have you own scheme or set of schemes whenever and wherever you want it!

Also, plenty of visual effects are being added. Some of the testing effects can be seen in these screenshots. Keep in mind that just because it is pictured here, that does not necessarily mean that a unit is changing to what you see here.

Huge shoutout to smoth for the new effects for shields. It looks amazing!

In addition to color schemes, you can also apply projection texture to your units!

But wait! There's more! If you order within the next 5 min--- Err, when this becomes available, you can even scheme individual units independently of the overall color scheme!!!!!

Like I said, very cool! Excited yet? You should be. Coming soon, to an Evo near you.

I really dislike Best Buy overall. Their prices are a total ripoff, and typically their employees are idiots. This store is a bit of an exception. Every time I have needed anything out of the ordinary, they have gone out of their way to help me. The fact that the customer service I have received at this store is so good makes me happy to shop there. That said, Best Buy prices are a total ripoff. Make sure you have a price matching app (like ShopSavvy) so that you can have them pricematch with Amazon, Newegg, Frys or Microcenter.

I am originally from Kansas City, and the Microcenter on 91st and Metcalf in Overland Park, KS is freaking awesome. This Microcenter is ok. Until recently it had utterly dismal and depressing lighting. They changed it around Black Friday of 2012, so it's actually quite nice. They also made the store much less Cluttered. The sales staff in the parts department are nice and helpful. The people in the monitor section are typical salesmen, which is basically useless when it comes to information. Overall it's a great store, but their staff could use some educating.

Me and my brother rode form the Santa Fe Dam to Seal Beach, and one of the places I wanted to hit was the River's End Cafe. I thought it was so neat to be sitting on the patio, having lunch right on the beach! That said, the food was ok. It's essentially bar food, so greasy and tasty. Their prices are high. Their service is very slow. If you don't mind dropping 10 bucks for burgers and fries and aren't in a hurry, it's a nice place.

Selection is nice. Meat department has some great cuts at decent prices. Doesn't carry the 10 calorie sodas other than Dr. Pepper. The have Mastercard Paypass, but will physically stop you from using your nfc phone to use Google Wallet to pay, yet they have no problem with nfc enabled Mastercards. For this reason alone, you should avoid this store and go somewhere that isn't managed by luddites.

The food here is UHMAZING! The 5-6 dollar burger meal is incredible. Their drink sizes are smaller than normal (medium is 16oz), but other than that it's fine. Their drive through window is on the right side of your car so you have to lean over to pay and all that, but that is more a fault of the way the building was originally designed (it's an old building) than anything, and it doesn't pose a problem, just an entertaining layout. The fries here are the best that I have tasted in LA. Moreover, they LOAD you up with them. It's the greatest experience ever :-) Damn good food, and fast service. Great burger joint!
