This is sheer brilliance. Aside from the words – which are already pretty funny – the thing is packed with little visual jokes. This YouTube version is a bit grainy and lo-res, but the one on google video is a little crisper. At one point we see Al buying what looks like a bootleg copy of Star Wars, but in the higher resolution version you can see he’s getting a copy of the Star Wars Holiday Special.

No, brutal, soul-sucking, marriage-destroying crunch mode in game development isn't a privilege or an opportunity. It's idiocy.
The Best of 2013
My picks for what was important, awesome, or worth talking about in 2013.
Are Lootboxes Gambling?

Juvenile and Proud
Yes, this game is loud, crude, childish, and stupid. But it it knows what it wants to be and nails it. And that's admirable.
Best. Plot Twist. Ever.
Few people remember BioWare's Jade Empire, but it had a unique setting and a really well-executed plot twist.
