So there’s been a bunch of confirmed cases of the swine flu a.k.a. H1N1 a.k.a. Hamthrax reported from this year’s Penny Arcade Expo a.k.a. PAX [source]. Now to the best of my knowledge, no one from PAX has died from this. If they had, I wouldn’t be joking about it.
Now, the guys at Penny Arcade are doing their best to get the information out about what’s going on and what to do. Not sure, but I think Tycho Gabe and Kurtz might have been part of the lot that actually contracted it. Hell, if it means being able to have an excuse to take a day off, I might have contracted it as well… FROM THE INTERNET. Seriously, I’ve heard that once you get the results back of whether or not you have the swine flu you’re already feeling better. It’s like a mild to moderate case of the flu at best. Still, it does suck getting the flu.
We’re trying something new over at BigBoomBomb.com. Custom Rejected Mega Man Villains. Depending on the demand this item may be pulled from the site as early as today. I honestly have no idea how this thing will work. So if you do want one, now’s the time to act.
Lastly, I also added an article about my suggestions for new PEGI content descriptors. I thought I made some pretty good suggestions.
