    … of the Month: Mr. Face Advance

    Background: A long long time ago, on an ancient, destroyed, website, there lived a happy little smiley face by the name of "Mr. Face." Now Mr. Face was a kind enough soul, never bothering anyone, and pretty much minding his own business. He lived a pretty uneventful life until one dreadful day when some bastard game players like you decided to shoot him... in the face! Assholes. Anyway, one shot to the head was not enough for the psychos, they shot over and over and over until the poor yellow smiley couldn't take it anymore and exploded... That was the last we saw of the lovable face for years to come.

    … of the Month: Dragon-Warrior.com

    Although it doesn't contain walkthroughs, cheats, or other elements usually associated with websites based on video games, Dragon-Warrior.com is one of the best, if not the best, Dragon Warrior site out there. Within the confines of this excellent website you will find comics based on Dragon Warrior (Dragon Warrior 101 being the main comic of several, and quite funny), a store where you'll find links to pretty much all dragon warrior related merchandise (games, music, t-shirts, etc), AIM bots, images, fan-made games, message boards, and more! What more could you possibly want? What's that you say? You want to see a mage get stripped naked by a slime? Well, it's your lucky day because Dragon-Warrior.com has that, too! So hurry your dragon hungry self over to Dragon-Warrior.com before it's too late! Too late for what? I guess you'll just have to go there and find out for yourself.
