Heads up fellas! EA is on Humble Bundle. You get all those games for PC and pay what you want. I recommend a penny over the average at least so you get the two extra. You would be surprised how fun Sims 3 can be. All the moneys go to some pretty good charities.

Just bought a PS3 a few weeks ago.  They have a special on the 1st 2 and I almost picked them up.  Need to finish The last of Us before I do.

Tim, I have been playing it a lot recently. I have to say, the early stages are a but boring, but once you figure out what can make what and all that, it becomes really really fun. What's your server address, I'll have to stop by sometime.

Classic Arcade Game Deaths.  Man I'm old.  I've played every single one of these.

"There exists in Tibet po cha, also known as butter tea. Such tea is created by boiled tea with the addition of salted yak butter. It would appear that you have stumbled upon its impoverished brethren, in the use of coffee."
