Game Faces

I slide the truck into an open spot and put it in park. I sit for a moment while the podcaster finishes speaking, because I am Greg – and Greg has a hard time interrupting people. The voice finishes.

There are no easy choices this week. The industry didn't make it easy. I was hoping, for example, that there would only be two releases for the PS4.

Another one of the cool benefits of not locking prizes behind big individual donations is giving everyone a shot at a fancy custom forum icon done by the amazing Elysia. We have the usual tiers based on years donated of course, but you may notice some community members have unique, one of a kind icons. Want one of those? Of course you do!
As part of our 2014 Donation Drive we reached the goal of having special community guests on the podcast. This will be a draw so everyone gets a chance! All you have to do to enter is post in the comments below and we'll collect all the names and draw them out of a hat on one of our planned live shows. What do you need to be on the Conference Call?
