Great work to everyone that was herded. I have quite an afternoon of reading ahead of me.
Thanks for adding the tournament Saint! Anyways, Lots of good blogs this week, I'm not sure how Elder Scrolls MMO will go, but I think it has enough potential to be good
Dang my import review didn't get in. haha oh well :D . I would love to play Kid Icarus on May 13th but ill be on the road headed home so no go :(
Thanks Saint! Great picks congrats everyone!
Hey, congrats to those herded. Haven't read them all, but I have no doubt they were good.
On an unrelated note: Prepare Yourselves. When my newest creations are unleashed upon this world, no one will be safe.
congrats gang! Some real good picks here. Some I missed like usual x_o But awesome stuff!
Great job GIO!
Appreciate it Saint. Congrats everybody!
This is now my second Herded Blog, and it's great. Thanks a bunch Saint!
@Darth-Carbonite - I have my reservations also, but probably not for the same reasons.
@DJH - Congratulations on number 2! Wait, sounds like we're potty training or something.
@Craigaleg - I concur!
@The Monster Hunter - Cheers, mate. Best of luck with the tourney.
@LGAR - Review type blogs are at a disadvantage when it comes to blog herding. It almost certainly would have if it were posted in the review section (some users post in both places).
@GoldvsSilver - Good job indeed.
@Colton - (presses the Like button)
@God Of Irony - Yup. Another masterpiece...why are you not working for a video game company yet...at least doing story boards or something.
@indiejones - Thanks. I echo the congrats.
@DarkeonWarlord - Sounds ominous. Look forward to it.
@Prince of Snark Euphoric Ennui I - Awesome indeed.
@mojomonkey12 - Agree.
@Orochi Assassin LEVON Agree with this too.
@Jolt the Cynic - My pleasure.
@tonyadpx - No thanks needed. Thanks to you for submitting top notch material.
Thanks so much for the recognition, Saint! Much appreciated. Noob's blog is great, as I'm sure everyone else's is, too. One day I'll step away from the keyboard long enough to read them all. ; )
Cool! 1st herded blog!
