I’m the go-to girl with friend who apparently can’t use Google, so I figure I may as well perform the same function for you.
The good news is, my dentist visit yesterday went perfectly smoothly. Apparently it is okay to never go to the dentist as long as you brush religiously and hardly ever eat sweets. Hooray! Still, it’s probably wise to head back a leetle more often than every six years.
Pat’s still in Sweden, but Johnny’s going to do a Bulletcast video today. Feel free to tell Pat how much you prefer checking out my tasteful decor as opposed to his. Not that we’re rivals our anything. Ha ha! That would be hilarious! Double-crossing two-timing non-Templar choosi- are you still here? Get to the headlines.

The full piece has a thing on DRM, too, which is interesting, because Steamworks was one of the reason PC gamers rose up against Steam in the early days.
- No civilian casualties in Battlefield 3
Good call. Most moral choices in games barely cause an eye blink. The exceptions are amazingly powerful though, aren’t they?

Maybe one day. I’m kind of hoping Bayo will turn up in Anarchy Reigns.
