    I would like this forum to be all about Games for Windows Live ;) NOT!

    I really like the layout and format... can we eventually have some more skins for members to choose from?
    What about branding and logos?
    Is the current format the branding we are using or do you guys want some ideas?

    Not a bad idea... take Lizard #2 and add a little more horns and roughness... Maybe a hat?

    Here they are very small:

    Now were talking Gecko!
    How about giving the smooth and the rough some colour high lights red and blue and stuff like that!

    Could we add a bit of shoulder to the Penguin and slap it with some Sargent strips? Could we see him with blood shot eyes? ":O}

    I'll get on that next week. Anything else?
    Is the border important?

    We could look at two Penguins staring at each other, reversed the gold and grey on the second one...here I'm thinking Shirts and skins, gamers in opposition type thing.
