    Well, since the deluge of "All things WildStar" is now a trickle, we simply *must* stay entertained, right?

    So, I have a (very weak) proposal : Let's study Carbine. Ferociously...uh, I mean "diligently".
    Yes, of course, we know the 'blurbs' and whatnot of WildStar, (as they come), but how about the people "behind the curtain"?

    I'm sure you've looked at the ABOUT US page at Carbine Studios, but what little bits of "useless" data can we pull from the pictures? We know that they're all gamers, and lovable geeks, as well. What kind of fun "questions" can we make up? (Do note: the slider bar reveals more pictures, enlargable by clicking on them)

    Examples:
    Does the Official "Carbine" Coffee mug come in multiple colors?
    Who is the pirate that loves Aurin?
    Who can 'rage' like a Granok?
    Who loves "Hello Kitty" and Portal? (odd mix, if you ask me)
    Who wins most often at "Magic: The Gathering?"
    How often does "Gorillaz" music play?

    See? All these (and many more) can be asked and theorycrafted. In understanding Carbine better, we may just (no promises) learn a bit more about the mindsets that make up Nexus.

    Happy Hunting!

    I'd like to know...
    "What sort of coffee is being put into those Carbine mugs?"

    An insider tells me that the mug only comes in the Blue.

    They are not available to public. It would be awesome if Robeardo made a contest where we could win one on these forums.

    Additionally, the types of coffee Carbine drinks:
    Starbucks (both mild and bold roasts),
    Peet's Coffee,
    Diedrich Coffee,
    a generic house brand, like Sommeit Coffee and Tea.

    That's all for now, hopefully more to come!

    Well, now... I can field a couple of those questions. Some of the others will have to wait since we're planning on answering them in upcoming blog posts.

    1. The mug is only one color.
    2. While that is not me in the picture with Hello Kitty and the Companion Cube, I also love both of those things.
    3. I am actually listening to Gorillaz right now (19-2000 is one of my favorite songs)

    I look forward to fighting tooth and nail with my compatriots for this prize.

    Also, it is the music that we choose:

    Twilight Sparkle. Not that I know who that is. :rolleyes:

    Also, I'm seeing answers (thank you), but "the game" is pulling out new questions. Like a "Treasure Hunt" within the Carbine photos.

    <-- Drinks MUCH coffee, would put a Carbine mug to lifelong use. hint hint. ;)

    Considering I'm Immortal, my usage of said Carbine Mug would be infinitely longer.
    See what I did thar?
    And that is also a hint. Hint.
