LCK: I like pressure. Pressure doesn’t make me crack. It’s enabling. I eat pressure, and there might be times when I get a bad feeling in my gut that this might be too much, but you feel pressure when you’re not doing something, you know?

For all those who have asked “where are the Trophies?” we are very sorry for the long wait. However, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Metal Gear series, we are very pleased to announce that trophies will finally be coming to MGS4 in the beginning of August!

The secret allure of the spoiler

The accepted modern posture is that knowing too much beforehand about the plot of a novel, a play, a movie, even a TV series, ruins the magic of experiencing it for the first time — renders it damaged goods, not worth one’s time or money.

I remember being rather angry (kayfabe) with jja for making this post (scathing comment alert) on his site with 24 spoilers. Now something like this wouldn’t give me as such scorn. It’s funny to go back and look at these comments and I long for the days when 24 was awesome. Such a funny comment thread ef everybody.
