Who’s up for a review of a game months after it came out?  I know I am! Released last May, Red Dead Redemption (affiliate link) held no interest for me.  Many people referred to it as “Grand Theft Auto in the old west”, and considering I haven’t played any GTA games, and I’m not a… read more

The third trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 aired tonight on television, and of course that means it showed up online pretty quickly afterwards.
