Iíll remember Prey not for its stationary portals and defiance of gravity but for the pipe wrench that became splattered with a shiny shader coating of blood and sinew. I only played through the demo of Prey but I have heard that the first 70% of the game does not build on the gameplay of the demo. Only until you get to the end are you treated to more diversity to sate the senses.

Andre and I double-dashed fiercely at the Penny-Arcade Expoís Mario Kart tourney. After we came in second last year, we were aiming for first this year. I personally would have liked to win, then retire from the game while on top and use that sail boat that I finished building. However, it was not to be. We came in second, again. After thinking that we were out twice in the tournament due to lowly sixth and seventh place race finishes in a couple of rounds, second was a surprise. I can assure that I was perfectly calm during our last place finish and did not yell excessively or jump so high that I was stuck in the ceiling.

Hello,
I'm Jeff and I'll be your special guest star here on n00b squad. I would have started doing this earlier, but the last company I worked for had rather draconian IP policies, and I didn't want to accidently give Tombo's comic to them by being in any way associated with it.
 
So yeah, I also appear in today's comic as a sort of, beefy scary unibomber man. And here I thought Tombo would take at least a LITTLE artistic licence....
 
Oh yeah, I totally went to PAX '06. Here is a recap:
