SAN DIEGO, CA - June 9, 2008 - Six original pieces of artwork

The included SOE art pieces were selected from thousands of entries by

"The EXPOSÉ series is an annual snapshot of the world's best digital
art, and we're very grateful that companies like Sony Online
Entertainment allow their artists to promote their amazing work in our
books," said Daniel P. Wade, co-publisher of Ballistic Media. "The
standard of entries for EXPOSÉ 6 was exceptionally high, and it's a
testament to Sony Online Entertainment that so many of its artists
were featured this year."

Been watching a good friend play the Metal Gear game on twitch soon. I will say I can understand the appeal 100% and Kojima knows how to make a great piece of work. I think will hold off on a new pc and get this if this keeps up!

So there's a chance more MKX characters are being revealed today. Now, I'm not saying you *should* cross your fingers and say a prayer for me to get my waifu Sindel just, y'know, it would be monstrous of you to make me cry with your lack of love & support

Just so you know, I've been a Huge subscriber for a few years but I thought I had until the end of September to cancel it. So I've opened an inquiry for the refund, which is on tinypass' end of things by the way.

I once posted that Total Recall was the best movie ever made. I would like to make note that Starship Troopers is a close second. Carry on.
