Dave G tries to pretend that he's a social butterfly

Yeah, yeah, you're not fooling anyone, Dave, even with your fun little article on your blog.

I wonder if one day that you'll say that you care

...like a puppet on a striiiiiing, auriond's The Marionette has won JayIsGames's best adventure. Woo! Congratulations! Now to start the debate of whether Ben split his own vote... but he did end up with 3rd. And 5th. And 7th, 8th and 9th positions.

Tantrum time

Well, apologies for the lack of recent posting, I'm busy moving my life around! Anyway, over on the forums the old "I don't like the score the review panel gave" debate is on again. This time, Hurg has deleted all 3 Cosmos Quest games from the AGS Games DB in reaction, although you can still get them from his site.

I had some people express to me similar anger to the lack of AGS awards for QFG2VGA, with the general thrust being that not enough or the wrong type of people voted in the awards. Well, the review panel isn't enough people for some either. Especially when their game or one they like is involved. Or maybe some people can't take criticism. People should realise that such protests don't make them look like freedom fighters but instead make them seem petty and vain.

Andail has said that an official announcement is coming soon. Let's see if it pours oil on the waters.
