His name is Jason Kabuto.
Born in Australia, married at the age of 17, and had lovely Sarah at the age of 21.
Sarah's brother, James, was born 3 years afterwards.

That's funny, he did used to date someone called Sarah. I wonder if he still does. I believe she was the reason he moved to Australia.

I have no power to make a new thread in "news", so I'll add this little addendum here:

Kotaku, one of the biggest game sites out there, currently has a screenshot of LBA1 and some words of praise on its front page!

The full article is here.

By the way, I still love this place (MBN).

Wow, that's great.

Sadly they didn't say anything about LBA itself and what makes it so great, but it's better than nothing.

I just wanted to mention that Zero Punctuation's Yahtzee posted a miniature LBA1 review on his "I am a <x>; ask me anything" q&a on reddit:
"Painfully bad isometric controls, shit voice acting, otherwise alright."

A* indeed. :P
Besides, the things he was complaining about were at the time quite good relative to contemporary games.
