Gaming commentary and news for the week

Gaming commentary and news for the week


There are too many games out right now that I don't have time to play. This is the most common lament when the average entry in your entertainment medium of choice takes 15 hours to experience. Killzone 2, GTA: Chinatown Wars, Halo Wars, Resident Evil 5, Resistance: Retribution, Mad World, and more have all been released this month. Add these to the dozen or so games from the fall season that I wish I had played, plus the 50-ish from the last 15 years that I would love to pick up some day, and it becomes clear that I will never get to play all the games I would like to play. It also doesn't help that I am still engrossed in Fallout 3.

Anyway, due to everyone who would normally be writing interesting things about video games being busy actually playing video games, there is not much to write about this week, so I guess I'll just talk some more about Resident Evil 5. Sigh.

Life, love, and sneakers

Rob Heppler got his sneaker schooling in jail: "Anyone that had super-awesome sneakers, it was for a reason. It meant you were a huge drug dealer or you were rich or somebody cared about you on the outside."
The culture of high-end kicks is about to blow up in Boston. How many pairs do you have?
