I really don’t like how commercialized Hitmas has become. When I was kid, Hitmas was about crazy, life-ending butchery in the name of a paycheck. Now people are so obsessed with shaved heads, sunglasses, and barcode tattoos. They’ve forgotten the true meaning of the holiday and instead are focused on shallow, superficial things. It’s cheapened the celebration and taken the joy out of contractually-arranged assassination.
But not Rutskarn. Rutskarn understands the True Meaning of Hitmas:
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. I’m so happy right now that I could beat a man to death with a fruitcake.
This is just a one-week deal. We’ll do something else special for Spoiler Warning next week (maybe even more Hitman, we haven’t decided yet) and then we’ll launch the next season on September 13.
Push the Button!

The Biggest Game Ever
How did this niche racing game make a gameworld so massive, and why is that a big deal?
The story of me. If you're looking for a picture of what it was like growing up in the seventies, then this is for you.
Grand Theft Railroad
Grand Theft Auto is a lousy, cheating jerk of a game.
WAY back in 2005, I wrote about a D&D campaign I was running. The campaign is still there, in the bottom-most strata of the archives.
