He’s posted a follow-up and a semi-apology, which means more or less nothing to me. It sounds like we’re all buddies now, but he still wants M-rated games taken off the shelves.

The Best of 2011
My picks for what was important, awesome, or worth talking about in 2011.
A programming project where I set out to make a gigantic and complex world from simple data.
A look at the main Borderlands games. What works, what doesn't, and where the series can go from here.
Quakecon Keynote 2013 Annotated
An interesting but technically dense talk about gaming technology. I translate it for the non-coders.
A horrible, railroading, stupid, contrived, and painfully ill-conceived roleplaying campaign. All in good fun.
