A couple of friends of mine have started up citizen game, a smart-ass games blog unlike many others in the sense that its writers are more smart than ass. They've also taken the moral high-road, rejecting advertising and free games (I run Google ads and happily accept freebies). Bless their 8-bit hearts and good luck to `em. I can only hope a drunken podcast is forthcoming.

Thanks for the plug, dude! I think we just tripled our daily traffic. (Which to be honest wasn't that hard to do, but I crave validation.)

Believe me, we wouldn't say no to free games to review - but should such a glorious day come, the current policy is full disclosure off the top. Brutal honesty trumps my (mild) desire to not rent the things.

Never ads though. Dan's allergic. Physically. Hives. And Tourette's. Very nasty.
