Oh, and tom, I notice you didn't talk about The Forsaken City. Is it because you've given up hope in that?

Lucky day forever was totally mindblowing. I must have watched it 10 times through while most of them lose my attention after 10 seconds. Top notch stuff!

Every time I play an Achievement Unlocked game I am reminded of George Carlin's stand up bit about Stuff.

I agree. It look like opening up the portal for videos has done Newgrounds a lot of good.

Congrats to all the winners!
