A freaky episode from +Sargon of Akkad because we get to see his face react to this stuff.  It's great to see. :)

Holy crap! DId not know minifigs were only as old as I am.  I could have sworn they'd been around long before me and not just the same year. :)
 
Today in Geek History: LEGO first released their modern line of minifigures in 1978. And it was AWESOME!

It's a great headline if nothing else. :) 
Our brothers in the land of mobile gaming might recognise the name Galaxy of Fire – it’s an old dog, at least in the context of iOS: A space-em-up dogfighting

So many Warhammer 40k games all across the spectrum of bad.  :|

Granted all the choices mean I do get a few that are what I want, but mostly I just see lots of, what just feel like cheap cash in games. :(

I applaud it. Cash in, baby!
If the game is fun - great! If not, I just won't play :)

Huh... not a metroidvania game player but this looks interesting. 
Headlander is the next game from Double Fine, and with news that the project lead from the wonderful Stacking is in charge I'm definitely paying attention.

I worked in kitchens for years, mostly school cafeterias, but for a  while I was a short order cook in a diner and I never got a share of the tips.  I was paid about $1 more an hour than minimum wage and the waitresses were paid $.50 less per hour (because at the time I do believe the waitress minimum wage was less due to tips).  So basically a $2 tip an hour meant the waitstaff made more than me.  

I didn't like it so you know what I did?  I stop working in those jobs.  

I agree dealing with customers sucks ass, but I've come to embrace the Australian notion of no tipping unless it's exemplary service.  There's a base level of service they're paid to produce and if that's all they do, they don't deserve a tip.  

There are lots of other customer service focused jobs (my current job of car salesman for instance) that the notion of tipping never even pops into people's heads, so why do we think of waitstaff and bellhops differently?  Again, I'm fine with tipping for exemplary service but if all you're doing is your basic job of taking my order and bringing it to me then no, that's not worth an special recompense and why should it?

I can believe it based on what I've seen on both sides of the pacific. :)

Now if I could just get into one of these rooms with my wife and coworkers... :)

There are a few in Sydney so there's a chance. :)

You have to go!!! My high school broadcast crew and I went to the Puzzalarium in San Diego, and it was one of the highlights of our week. So much fun!

Okay this looks cool and I like the voice acting.  Seems a bit like the original Dragon Age with the pausable real time combat. (Which I liked)

Thumbs up for this video just to hear +Vee saying Sterotypes over and over again.  I think he pronounces it like four different ways as he gets going and it's great. :)
