We're gearing up for a busy summer here at the NG HQ. We have several SPECIAL GUESTS coming by the office at various times over the summer, to jam out on games and site features. More news on that as the months progress!

Summer events for everyone else:
Newgrounds booth at Wizard World Philly on June 19-21.
the Behemoth / Newgrounds booth at Comic-Con in San Diego on July 23-26.

In the fall we have PAX and the Denver Beerfest.

I'm putting together a crazy idea that I'll be pitching to everyone later this week!

I never understood why people complain about what did or didnt get first place. they all win the same thing hon. whether you come in first or fifth youre still a winnar

If anyone should complain it should be the bubble boy entries ie the ones that come in 6th ...

Really!?
I've seen sonny 1 rise to power and is still in power, but when sonny 2 was out, it fell fast, really fast. It was in the front page for... what? a week? I thought it was a good game and should deserve more for 20.something MB of hard work. I think that the reason that portal defenders was on the front page for a long time, longer than sonny 2, was because it was staff-made... No... don't bann me... pweease...
To be honest I never really got what 'w00t' ment...

And thus starts the first money-less award giving.

I'll be hitting the first two days of Comic Con (since I was too late to book Saturday and Luis told me Sunday will suck). You planning on having any afterparties like last year? It'd be fun boozing with NGers again.

Woah, this month was great! It was full of cool stuff, congrats to all the winners! They all deserve it, though "Run, Darnell, Run!" should have gotten a better place IMO.

Well, when I got some for Narwhals, both me and Weebl got $30 (I dunno if it's 30 for everyone or if it's split between authors), which is about a shirt and a couple of keyrings/patches. Just be cautious about delivery charges, and bear in mind if you're a foreigner you'll have to pay a customs charge (which for me, was about the same price as the stuff I ordered that I was supposed to get for free. Stupid Britain.)

Alright. I have actually won a monthly once, but I think that it will take a good while before I do it again, so it was mostly out of curiosity that I wondered ;)
