    I can’t decide if the text-to-movie things are awesome or if they just creep me out.

    I really worry about the upcoming court battle. If the supreme court rules in California’s favor it’s going to set a dangerous precedent, one that could affect games for years to come in very negative ways. The ECA is still looking for people to sign the petition. If you haven’t signed yet, please go here and do so.

      I’m still learning how to work this thing. Won’t overdo it though so don’t be too creeped out (: But yeah, it’s kind of … haha, it’s very simple, but almost too simple in the sense that I screw things up because I expect them to work another way.

      Agreed on all counts. Sign that petition, people!

        LMAO! WTH Andrew… that video was hilarious, once I realized both people had the same voice and I had to watch their mouths. But classic dialogue made even funnier with bad pronunciation. “W. Hat?” “O-H. Yes.”

        “I am old and wizened,” says the nubile young girl.

        “Dogs are foot-less and fancy free… the puppies make me smart.”

        “Why are you pronouncing his name so egregiously?” “I blame technology.” LOL

        And yes we ARE all fancy here, just like French people!

        I tried to give her a new voice but I didn’t know how to edit the video! It’s not my fault! And the scripting software is so wonky!

        … but if it makes it funnier than, um, YEAH. I totally did that on purpose.

    What’s really weird is that California has recently taken a stance that “prohibition only creates criminals, and is no effective”, (See Prop 19) and for the life of me, I don’t understand how they are not drawing the parallel to video games. Banning the sale of “x” in one state makes people go to another state to get it (See “Fireworks that leave the ground, Colorado).

    At a time when state-wide revenue is down, and there is a HUGE deficit, banning the sale of ANYTHING in California is a bad move. Hopefully, one of the people in charge of fiscal bean counting will realize this and put a stop to these shenanigans.

    We must put our faith in bean counters. This is gonna suck.
