    Colton’s E3 interest seams to be only sequels and remakes.

    Hello Neighbor is the title I’m most interested in. The early alpha videos were awesome fun, hoping it eventually releases. Lots of other interesting stuff too. Wish I had more time to game. This may date me (or my computer? both?), but the main games I keep playing are CS:GO, Slither.io (quick casual fun), and Steve Jackson Games UltraCorps. Still waiting for Half-Life 3…

    Seams like you got this sewn up, Colton.

      Oh, you sew don’t want to start a pun war on this topic, I’ll leave you in stitches.

        • Growler
        • 2 years ago

        It’s our usual pattern, though, to make up puns out of whole cloth.

          • drfish
          • 2 years ago

          Nice, seams like we have a contender.

        • Neutronbeam
        • 2 years ago

        We just want to needle you in this thread.

          • drfish
          • 2 years ago

          I knew you’d have to bobbin here.

            • Neutronbeam
            • 2 years ago

            Eh, what the heck–I thought I’d give it a spindle.

            • drfish
            • 2 years ago

            Keep the pedal down, if we keep chaining-off each other’s comments, this thread is a lock for greatness, unless someone puts a foot in their mouth.

            • Neutronbeam
            • 2 years ago

            Ah hem…I’ve darted back in here, but it seams your bias is showing, darn it.

            But, as I have an eyelet for the future–and I am lining up my next comment as I have no doubt I will be facing you again–I think I will be pocketing this competition, unless I have some reason to quilt. My comments are tailor-made for your defeat, but I admit that you may be able to selvage your reputation, dr. Twill we meet again, this exchange has been most enjoyable, and I must confess that it is likely to become an amusing yarn.

            What lofty comments you’ve made, and without even batting an eye. The puns are so dense I felt as if there was almost no way to unpick your meaning.

            • Neutronbeam
            • 2 years ago

            Occasionally I have a serge of creativity; but if I’ve annoyed anyone then I pleat for their forgiveness.

            • drfish
            • 2 years ago

            Ack! Too slow with my use of “serge” – that’s what I get for going home to feed dogs.

            • drfish
            • 2 years ago

            Aww man, [i<]I[/i<] was going to use "Ah hem" 😛 Not to back-tack on my previous boast, but I need to leave this thread trimmer than I intended. I'll patch in this bit last bit though so you can serge ahead.
