by Jason "loonyboi"
this is our first week back, and there are a number of questions
that only I could actually answer, I'll be handling this week's
MailBag. Don't worry, next week, my sister, the fabulous Stephanie
"Bobbi" Bergman will return to this spot, but for now,
you'll just have to put up with me.
Anyway, on to the letters!
Two from the hiatus...
Subject: Good God, I needed the hiatus almost as
much as you must :)
that's kind of an exaggeration I suppose... but it finally
gave me the time to catch up on your issues. You post so
much quality content, your (relatively) small team of writers
puts out more content than I can read, and since it's all
great I can't pick and choose. Way to crack the whip, Loony
:) And thanks to everyone else for making this online magazine
Subject: Opinion? ...Opinion? ...I'll give you my
my LoonyGames!?! Hiatus my ass! Get this shit up and going
again! ... ;)
we only returned because we were scared of the wrath of
Levelord. Who wouldn't be?
Time zone? What's a time
ol' Loonygames... even with the hiatus/new facelift, its
nice to see some things don't change (ie features missing
their slotted day and so forth - of course Tuesday isnt
quite over yet - Where's my damn Q3A pic?!)
Nice to have
Jon here mixed
up his time zones. We've been updating at 12:01 AM EST since
Gotta love the devotion.
Subject: sweet mother of buddha!!!!
oh sweet mother of god
oh you have no idea how
long i have waited for this moment....how long ive sat on
my couch watching Forgive or Forget wondering about ol'
loony....how long ive stood outside my balcony, completely
naked and holding a can of cranberries, screaming to the
heavens about your absence...how long ive sat in my corner
naked in the fetal position begging for one more paul steed
tutorial....now my life can resume!
or would that be the other way around?
Those pesky kids.
Subject: Penny Arcade
were majorly dissed by Penny Arcade on the 10th of November.
Don't worry, I love the resurrected loonygames, and it has
a lot more content than one tumbleweed.
And the Blade Runner quote is still wrong.
Penny Arcade strip was funny, and not insulting in the least.
Besides - they know better than to say something really
nasty against us...we've got dirt on them like you wouldn't
so maybe not. But I've heard they smell.
