Forgive me, Shadow. It completely slipped my mind that the books without the pretty pictures in them confuse you. Gimme just a second and I'll go search for a picture of Captain Kirk putting his hand to his face and then, once I find it, I'll post it. That way, you can follow along just fine. 

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

Be nice. I only noticed after it was pointed out myself.

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

You have no idea how hard I'm trying to be nice. And, if I say so myself, I'm doing a pretty good job. At least I scratched the first response which came to mind.  Gimme some credit.

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

Hey, Jason, gonna re-vamp the ECA's logo? Can't nobody but those already indoctrinated in the way of the secret handshake figure out what that thing symbolizes.

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

He's talking about this:

Is it immediately apparent to you that the logo is an "E", "C", and "a"?

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

Think back to the very first time you saw it, Andrew. Honestly, was it immediately apparent to you back then?  

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

No, it wasn't and that was my point.  I don't think it's a bad logo but I feel it's a bit too clever for its own good.

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

It'd be less confusing, I think, if the "a" was an "A." And if the "E" wasn't so often rendered in white. Against a white backgound, it ends up looking like two legs.

Re: ECA Hires New Director of Public Relations

Welcome abord Mr. Anderson, im sure you'll be a great addition to the ECA.

E. Zachary KnightMatt, That the whole stink over the articles is a bunch of BS? Because that is the only part that is BS.07/31/2015 - 8:29am
MattsworknameOh btw, info, are you still refering to that "gamers are dead" argument? Cause sargon of akkad just did a 3 video series that proves it's based on bullshit07/31/2015 - 6:46am
MattsworknameInfo: thats what you call clickbaiting to the highest level07/31/2015 - 5:43am
InfophileAnd here's why you never judge an article by its title: "Microsoft Gives All Windows 10 Users the Finger" - http://www.themarysue.com/microsoft-windows-10-middle-finger/ (I'm looking at you, people still mad about "Gamers are Dead")07/31/2015 - 5:09am
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.bloomberg.com/news/videos/2015-07-31/khan-academy-s-sal-khan-studio-1-0-full-show-7-30- not game related, but this is a good interview.07/30/2015 - 8:52pm
Goth_SkunkFinally, I never misspelled Chipman's name. So, feel free to try your luck again, but pick an opponent you can beat.07/30/2015 - 8:32pm
Goth_Skunk@Technogeek: I paid for the experience of the seat, and upon completion of the movie determined that the extra for the seat wasn't worth it. Additionally, your opinion is not law. You thinking the movie is crap does not make it so.07/30/2015 - 8:31pm
Craig R.1st I heard of Pixels was seeing trailer in theater. Was interested until Sandler appeared, then it became an instant 'Nope'.07/30/2015 - 4:52pm

MechaCrashIt's especially funny because I said "you'd have to be a moron to enjoy it," and Goth boasted about enjoying it, as if that does anything to change my opinion of the movie or of him.07/30/2015 - 4:19pm
TechnogeekMatthew: Back when that law was first implemented, I kept trying to come up with a scenario where it would be anything other than an unmitigatedd sisaster. Nothing ever came to mind.07/30/2015 - 4:16pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2015/07/new-study-shows-spains-google-tax-has-been-a-disaster-for-publishers/ no duh Sherlock!07/30/2015 - 4:10pm
TechnogeekI can't even make a joke about that. It's like poking fun at Donald Trump's hair.07/30/2015 - 4:01pm
TechnogeekSo you willingly paid more money than you needed to in order to watch a crappy Adam Sandler movie (but I repeat myself), just to spite a reviewer that you can't even spell the name of properly.07/30/2015 - 4:01pm
Goth_SkunkMy one regret was paying extra for a DVX seat, which jostles and vibrates in relation to the action on screen. What a waste of money.07/30/2015 - 3:55pm
Goth_SkunkYes, I did watch Pixels just to spite Chipman. I was originally going to see Minions, but moved it down the list. AND I ENJOYED IT. So nuts to you, MechaCrash.07/30/2015 - 3:44pm
Matthew Wilson@phx works fine for me, but I did it the long way. I upgraded, made a recovery drive, than did a full install.07/30/2015 - 3:24pm
Andrew EisenReally liking Child of Light so far (I play on console so UPlay isn't a concern). Gorgeous aesthetic with a fun presentation and battle system. So far, so good!07/30/2015 - 1:36pm
