I love that he thought he had to specify what kinda Drag Race... :P

and on gamergate, well as far as the original intent before it got hijacked by shitlords, I'm reminded of LOKI talking about Driv3r over on OLR, with the rigged reviews / exclusivity deals that happened leading up to that game's release.

There's a great youtube video by UK gamer Guru Larry that talks about the Driv3r thing in-depth I recommend checking it out if you wanna learn the whole story. but that's what I understand GG's original intent was, calling out bullshit like that.

(had to laugh at the alanis joke, haha)

E3 is my favorite time of year though... waking up early to catch the press conferences, hopping into chat to watch (and snark) with the other VOG people, it's a fun time!! and seeing the twitterverse blow up in realtime is great too!

Dark Black Forest was an amazing song, can I request that for at some point on the next OLR? :P
