Moogle calls dibs on streaming Bayonetta 2

So apparently you call dibs to stream a game and stop other people doing it before you by making a blog post about it. Apparently nobody does this, and when they do, everyone ignores it I look forward to being added to that hallowed list of great people.

I have every intention of streaming Bayonetta 2 on release, and if you take this from me I will find you, and I will do horrible things to you. Horrible things, like hiding your keys, or moving your glasses somewhere else when you take a shower. I’ll also work magic on you so that you go into rooms and forget why you went there. It’ll be bad, you don’t want that.

The exception to this is of course if the game is delayed a large amount in Euroland compared with other territories – in which case, fill your boots. And fuck you for getting it early, you dicks.

Gentlemens Lunchtime Association ULTRA tournament

gla tourni

To celebrate the release of Ultra Street Fighter 4 I have organised a tounament featuring the GLA’s top fighters, As they punch, throw and Dive kick their way to be the Stretiest Fighter and win a FREE copy of ULTRA street fighter 4. (for PC)

Applications are open and everyone is welcome. Just register your interest in the commet section below with you steam ID to be entered (no fees – no risk). The dead line for entry is the 4th of May so get registered and start training.

Fighters will then be randomly drawn from a fedora and put into the tournament brackets, rounds will be best 2/3 with only the loser being able to repick characters. If you lose your first match you will then be put in the losers bracket and given a second chance, if you fail that time you will be eliminated. Winner of the winners bracket will be given winners advantage against the winner of the losers bracket.

Hope to see you there.

Ha, ha! We’re using the youtubes

Apparently some people really like this website, so the GLA YouTube channel is going to fall right back into regular use, starting now! I will be uploading one highlight per day, starting from the oldest ones twitch remembers. It’ll probably take me a little while to upload all of them, but this is your call to make highlights of things you thought were funny. I think (?) you need editor status to do that, but I’ll be doling that out to basically whoever wants it, just send me a message on steam or an email.

Now, please join me in that sacred YouTube prayer: remember to like, subscribe and share these videos as much as you can! Really helps me out!

Love, Cats

Announcing: GLA gold membership!

Yes, you read that right. It’s been almost four entire years since I started running this website. I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, I’ve yelled in furious anger, and I’ve sat awkwardly in silence. Mostly the last one, but still, it’s the principle of the thing, right? Because of this website, I’ve learned things I never would have learned, done things I never would have done, and (up until now) wasted a whole lot of time that I could have spent becoming a world-famous YouTube celebrity.

Well, today, that all changes! Because, the Gentlemen’s Lunchtime Association has just gone gold. We’re rolling out a new tier of premium membership to help enhance the site experience and support our continued administration and maintenance. I really can’t afford that $4 a month any longer.

To all of you who might be concerned about the changes: whatever. (No, but seriously, these won’t affect your ability to use the GLA if you don’t pay).
