Sadly I must admit that I have every tier 10 tank and TD available as of 8.3

My justification is its time spent with my son's who are both online gamers too.

PC or Console gamers?

Man cave heaven - Xbox 360, 65" HD screen. Surround sound. Floating floor (up off the concrete with an air gap). Sweet subwoofer that shakes the floor and electric theater recliners. I should require no pants to enter. Lol
