  1. Galloping Ghost thrown under the bus?

    Yesterday at 01:29 AM
    Curios how the GGA feels about billy blaming his lack of skill on their shoddy workmanship. We've heard its the board, its the tilt of the screen (omg i love that one, does the screen tilting make pacman go in the tilt direction faster cause of gravity lol), its cause of the joystick, its cause ...

    11-23-2020 at 08:15 AM
    krull is one of those games where accidental leeching can easily happen. the global rules really arent sufficient for this. theres just too much grey area in deciding whats an honest accident, whats on purpose and where the line is. so i suggest we rename the current track "leechfest" and ...
