The snow from Central Texas yesterday evening went South of us. How is it that we're North of snow in Mississippi?

Is "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" about a kid discovering his mother living out a sexual fantasy with Santa Claus roleplay?
Is "Frosty The Snowman" really about getting old and dying?
Is the second verse of "Jingle Bells" essentially this?
No wonder people are all messed up during the holidays.
____ it. I'm gonna be jolly no matter what those songs say.

O|X talked about gaming tattoos.
The whole (non-gaming) dragon made out of ice (not a white or blue dragon) breathing fire is pretty much impossible to do in a flat canvas and likely even more difficult to do on skin, but as for games...
What about Roger Wilco (of the Roman Numeral Space Quest series)? He's always saving the galaxy, getting no recognition, and just wants to sleep all day if they would only pay him to do it. If only...
It's also the first time I ran into a game that centered around absurd humor.
What would a tattoo of that look like?

I tried to be a jerk to everyone in Tales from the Borderlands, and for the finale, it retconned four key points. Granted, it needed at least three of the seven to be available or it would create an impasse in the story, but still. I did everything to lock those three out of the finale and it changed choices saying I didn't do something when I did and did something when I didn't. (The other four remained locked as I intended.)
The last thing it changed was the "ship". I've been trying to keep it from even being an option. In Episode 3, I had successfully created the friendzone and it stuck until the finale when it went right into the solid mutual-ship (instead of the sorta-kinda-ship that's easier to get than the mutual-ship). I guess the friendzone didn't make the final cut or something. (Friendzoning is difficult because there are several opportunities to generate interest. Turning interest into a mutual attraction is also difficult.)
Poopies. I broke the game.
What's weird is that one of those unlocked options has only one easy-to-miss opportunity to unlock while some of the others have multiple opportunities that only need one success to unlock. Strange. I wonder if it becomes random if you manage to upset everybody as I actually did.
There are also certain actions that seem to suggest that the alternatives were either added later incompletely or missed the QA for being unpopular choices among the QA team. Strange dialog references, missing animation, changes in appearance... I guess the Y2K testing method of going through every possible combination would be too time consuming. (Yes. I was involved with Y2K testing at a company. Every possibility was examined methodically.)
That said, the whole wholesome playthrough is far less entertaining than taking key opportunities to be a jerk at primary junctions. (One of those, however, will lock out the mutual ship.)

The day has finally come. *Extra Life 2017!!*
A lot of work from a group of very talented people will finally be shown to the World. But the event is so much more than just a production. I can't thank everyone enough for helping fund this cause I have grown to care so much for.
While I want to show and tell you everything, some things are worth waiting for and this is one of them. Here is what I can fill you in for now.
Streaming - YouTube/Site/App/Twitch/Facebook (YouTube Rooster Teeth and TheKnow) Youtube on RT and site will also have a mutlicam feature to switch between main feed and BTS feed (BTS will include PiP of main feed as well so you dont miss anything)
YouTube won't post 24 hour stream and twitch will only keep for a few days after. We are recording a low res version good for the web. We will check file size and where to post. Details most likely after stream event. I hear everyone wanting the recording to watch again - we will do what we can.
Best way to contact is #rtextralife. Working to make YT and Twitch chat accessible to all as well as a quick way to information. If you need to reach Broadcast - we will do our best to read #RTbroadcast
We are working with new software so names and donations will be worked on midstream hoping to find our solution. So do your worst to try and break our system (please play nice
