    Sold out?

    Are you at liberty to say if the Sentinels are being released in a V2 form, or will they pretty much be the Sentinels we currently know and love?

    Countdowns send expectations skyrocketing. Countdowns that replace entire websites send expectations off the planet. Countdowns that deliver can increase value exponentially. Countdowns that fail to deliver can damage image irreparably. I most sincerely hope Dan and Dave deliver.

    Wardrobe Change!

    As contradictory as it sounds (and barring the character branding thing) I say that in general you want to look "similar but different" than your audience.

    Saturday Night - Roundtable with Michael Herp

    I'm Back from Vegas!

    Vegas Fun If you could have fooled Penn & Teller in Las Vegas, would you have gotten a free trip to London? :) Vegas is great fun especially if you've never been there or only get there once in a while. Next time you're able to go, check out Gambler's Book Club. Besides a lot of great...

    3 New Decks

    Not complaining at all, mind you, but I have to admit I got my hopes up for six different decks tonight, not three different decks each in two different colors. I'm not complaining because in the end it probably saved me a ton of money!!!
