Have a Steam account? Help Greenlight Produce wars. The entire soundtrack is by Waterflame, NG's Musician of the Year 2008 and a contributor to the Castle Crashers soundtrack.

Kajenx has set up a petition to stop the abusive trademark enforcement of the phrase "Tower Defense."

Also Mattster made the medals ePenis a reality.

That sums up a little of what happened while I was at PAX. Thank you everyone who stopped by the booth! BattleBlock Theater release date is APRIL 3rd.

I would show up for that party... I'd like to meet some of the people on this site.

And I'm pretty excited for that interview with Sarkazm, that flash was amazing.

The Audio Portal is 10!!?!? o.O Craziness....

I would. If I lived anywhere near there and not in the Midwest....

I have a Steam account. But I don't use it. The last time I even logged into it was when I got a free copy of The Binding Of Issac from Deathink.

Was it the explosion that made Newgrounds be down again?

I'd love to show up for the Pico Party, but it would be a pain in the ass to get down there from way up here in Canadaland.

The only photo you'll ever need in regards to that.

Next year maybe, it's always the week right before exams... Don't worry, I bought Castle Crashers, so that makes up for not coming.

Also, the downtime is good for testing what happens when the API doesn't connect in my game :D

Lots of good things going on! I was expecting some bigger and flashier update though, especially after that downtime. You call this an explosion? :P

Btw, does the MySQL upgrade mean there will be fewer Bad Gateway errors from now on?

Well, I've been invited to previous Pico Day parties at the office and they all coincided with other things (though I did catch up with you guys in Baltimore for a few hours in 2010). This year, I have a real shot at making it, and in all seriousness, I would go this time.

Yeah, it was neat. I'd love to see NG do more live broadcasting like they did a few years ago, but I understand the staff's pretty busy.
