Monday Links: Presidential Edition

I loved reading comments from people defending their precious voice actors over the weekend who had previously come over here to tell us to stop talking about gameplay over and over.  Good show.  Thanks for the entertainment.

Also, it’s President’s Day.  Amurkuh.
