Good stuff written overnight:
Let's talk games that you really ought to play based on your gaming history, but know nothing about. I've been a big fan of Lucasarts and Sierra PC games since I was a little kid, so theoretically I should play the Monkey Island games, but I really don't know the first thing about them. Are they a point and click? Action adventure? Why is it called Monkey Island? Who's the lead character? Is the skeletal pirate with the flaming beard important? I don't know! What series do you have that issue with?
And of course, if that doesn't tickle your fancy, use this lovely forum space to talk amongst yourselves!
Edit: I screwed up and meant to add this, so please scroll up and look!
The amazing Geek Empress is looking to fund the second volume of her comic, the Sorcerer's Apprentice, and opened up commissions on Tumblr (commission info here or donate direct), which I took advantage of to get this drawn!
This is just the sketch she sent me for approval, so she'll finish it and color it, but HOW COOL IS THAT! Hyrule Warriors Link, taking a break after a hard battle. I love it, and she is amazing, and maybe go toss her some spare change or get a commission or something.
