    Good Job Mackles! : ) I love when people make things less chaotic with organization! This was really necessary, thanks!

    Make sure you add all the reviews and such media though (cough, cough, cough)

    Don't praise Mackles too much, if we exaggerate a lot he might become so arrogant and proclaim himself Emperor. :p

    Organisation removes human contact, its horrible. Now instead of being condescending to all those innocent happy posters out there, we'll just waive them off to Mackle's post. Sigh.

    If there is anything new then I'll update the main post with it. Pretty likely that something new will get it's own sticky for a while though, so it shouldn't be hard to find!

    Whenever that Rome Rome II event hits the scene, we really will need this thread to keep all the media organized. I will be able to read a lot quickly when I take the Bart and the train into San Fran Everyday now!

    I like this thread a lot. very.

    I've driven by Sega's building in San Francisco (while fantasizing about Steve McQueen in "Bullet"- trying to suppress my urge to send my rental car leaping through the air), I wish I were near them today. Seems we have a bit of business that is - for some reason or another - "unfinished."
