Thanks everyone. Especially to Evil Avatar, the Man and the Community. I would be lost without this place. Everyone here is totally awesome.

I'll sling a PM your way in the morning Evil, I gotta head to work at the moment. Thanks again for the awesome contest, I've really enjoyed seeing all the creativity it has inspired.

Ohhh... AboveAvgCharles picked a great game -- the limited edition of Mass Effect for the Xbox 360.

Great choice!

Once he gets back to me, I may have a second very cool announcement.

Mass Effect Limited Collector's Edition arrived in my sweaty little paws this morning. The word "excited" doesn't even come close to describing it. We've got family in town for Thanksgiving right now, so I'm going to have to restrain myself for a couple of days, but you'd better believe that real soon I'll be spending some quality time with this game sans pants.

Thanks again to Evil Avatar for providing an awesome community and feeding my gaming habit. Much love, yo.

Congrats man! They picked the right man for the job. I hope something like this comes up again, as I now know what I'm up against I'm gonna call on you for some design work for my band, just without the free prize thing

Sounds like a plan. I'd be happy to do some stuff for your band. Drop me a line when you're interested.

I love this place.

That is fantastic! I was at work on the 20th and I didn't see the message. Glad you got the game on launch day.

Unless you guys have any suggestions or critiques about the design, I promise I'll stop posting revisions and just leave the goddamned thing alone. Swear.

Grats on the winning submission, there were some really great ones. I think you need to fix the helicopter blades though, they seem to be behind the building (unless that is intentional?)

I was just going to ask if you could do another quick job for me.

This is a great story! I was lucky enough to read a few of Evil's drafts and enjoyed each draft. Great pacing, great action, great characters!

Thank you, thank you. In a few months it will be a full novel. I'm also thinking of hiring a professional editor to help me with the final draft.

I'd consider removing the 'war is hell' bit from the cover as well as that is just so cliched.
