Weekly Round-Up: Fox News at it Again
Fox News has a spiffy little piece about games turning gamers into rapists.

Oh well, I’d love to type a longer intro but I’ve been playing so many soccer video games lately that I must be a pro by now and have to go sign my contract with Liverpool FC. Yes, that’s just ridiculous—much like Fox News.
Matryoshka dolls are pretty common where I live. Kids paint them and it’s just a part of the Russian culture left on the Alaskan island from years ago. It’s interesting to see something so prevalent here in the form of a video game, and a great one at that.

To say I am obsessed with all that is Dragon Age would be an understatement. I own all the books, comics, games, DLC and even some of the shirts and action figures. I also like Felicia Day of The Guild fame, but this miniseries may be the one Dragon Age thing I may not fall in love with.
Halo: Reach gets a new map pack… I have yet to play the last maps released months ago.
Yu Suzuki earns the GDC Pioneer Award, and the man behind Virtua Fighter and Shenmue deserves it.
