Today I have the day off from the ravages of a job that wasn’t all that bad to begin with. Left 4 Dead tonight is inevitable. Team Fortress 2 is possible. And by “tonight” I mean, “anytime after noon”. Noon was two hours ago for me. I plan to vigorously slack off very soon. Perhaps I’ll see you in-game. Remember that if I shoot you it’s probably not because of anything you did. Do try to be patient about it.
Note that you’ll need to join the Twenty Sided Group on Steam to join the official group server.
I know it isn’t possible, but I can’t help but think of how excellent it would be if the PC players could meet up with the Xbox players in some sort of utopian platform-agnostic server and play together.
Open thread for any pre-game or post-game comments. Also: when presented with a choice, do you take the pipe bomb or molotov?
Project Button Masher
I teach myself music composition by imitating the style of various videogame soundtracks. How did it turn out? Listen for yourself.

A Star is Born
Remember the superhero MMO from 2009? Neither does anyone else. It was dumb. So dumb I was compelled to write this.
What Does a Robot Want?
No, self-aware robots aren't going to turn on us, Skynet-style. Not unless we designed them to.
