That epic Doomtown game looks like hella fun! I hate how far away I am sometimes. /sadpanda

Enron, that Burger is... fake, right? RIGHT? Dear lord, that's ridiculous.

About the only gaming time I get in these days is on my phone on break at work or laying in bed at night with the wifey. The kiddos have now completely annexed the PS3 and PC to play Minecraft 24/7. When they're not playing, they're watching videos of other people playing. We've arrived at the point at which they start talking about stuff you can do in the game like it's no big deal and I have to stop them and ask.. wait, you can do that? And they rattle off the exact steps, recipe and utilization for said item/enchantment or whatever.. and I have almost no idea what they're talking about. The boy is 5. That blows my mind. If there was a college degree in Minecraft the kid would already be graduating college. lol. It's weird to be on the other side of that relationship, where I'm the one kicking my kids out of the house to go play in the back yard and be kids... when all I wanted to do as a kid was sit there in the living room and play games all day, too. Sigh. I'm going to have to step up my game so I can assert my gaming dominance over them for the foreseeable future, lol

I didn't break my Double Jack beer out for my birthday because we ate dinner then were worn out from it being the middle of a work week, but I'm off tomorrow so drinking that shit now. IT'S AWESOME! I like it. I haven't had the best of luck with some of the fancy brews the rest of the crew likes, but this one is delicious, so I'm stoked. Thanks gang!

More Japan goodness...

Burger King is introducing the all-black burger:

"It's made smoking it using bamboo charcoal. It probably tastes delicious. The buns are also smoked with bamboo charcoal* and, according to Ashcraft, the sauce is made with onion, garlic, and squid ink (which sounds rather delicious.) The beef patties made also contain black pepper."

Sweet!  I impulse-bought it after your post yesterday, it had been on the shelf for a few hours at nearby Gamescape.  Battle of the Five Armies was just in also - almost tempted to get that too!

Now I just need to work up the gumption to wade through them rules...  There's a lot of 'em.

It comes in a wooden case and includes 2 sets of cards, poker chips, some playmats, faction homes printed on thicker stock, and a bag of metal coin tokens. And a sheriffs badge.

Nice!  Can I come over tonight?  I'll call in sick with the wife.

Barring that, did Black Diamond pull through and get you the ultra deluxe version?  What makes it ultra deluxe? 
I've barely looked at it yet, but so far, so good. Rules are mostly the same, with some interesting changes. There are barely any out-of-town deeds (strikes aren't the big moneymakers anymore), which will be a big change. Shootouts are slightly less deadly. Cheating is a little harder.

A few cards got reprinted, but it's mostly new stuff. A few surviving characters are still around. I looks through the law dogs deck and saw Wendy and Dave Bellard (the new sheriff). The other factions are new - a new outlaw gang, a Sweetrock-esque ranching company, and a bunch of scary-looking magical circus Juggalos.

| OMG it's out?!

That's awesome!  How's it look J0rn? Better get one myself, methinks.
