It's time for another edition of Gaming in the Real World. This is where we ask developers, web writers and regular gamers to talk about their experiences talking to people about what they do for a living or gaming in general. Today Gone Gold's Bill Harris chimes in with his experiences and our own Fangblackbone offers his own story.

Nov 24th - 30th

Finally, a slow week! The rush to release games before Black Friday has ended and publishers are mostly hunkering down and waiting for next year. There are a few notables coming in December but for the most part it should be pretty quiet. This week is especially slow with o­nly a handful of games worth mentioning.
I should make it clear from the start for those of you who've arrived at this article or website in search of pornography, "warez", or to appease your raging beach fetish, that this article is written entirely in the spirit of mocking you. I point this out, because there appears to be a hell of a lot of you.
Years ago one might have considered OverClocked ReMix an insider game music site. These days many of you may have heard about this site which features over a thousand remixed videogame music tracks from authors all over the world. If you havenÂ't visited the site by now itÂ's about time you did!

Ready to Work

I don't really have any sort of diatribe or message to go along with today's comic. So I'll just update you with what I'm up to. My wife and I have increased tension in our marriage by playing rounds of Mario Kart: Double Dash in the evenings. If she happens to be working during the evening, I head upstairs to inch my way through the Warcraft III single player campaign.
I like this game. Certis is prodding me in the back, so I guess thatÂ's not quite enough. Okay, I like this game because it is a glorious and perfect sequel to FFX, itÂ's dynamic and fun, and Yuna can jump now and the girls are so damn cute it makes me want to giggle everytime they do their little victory dance thingie at the end of a fight. Can I go play it again now? Dammit.
'O my lord, far be it, alas! that what is past should again come to pass and that I company with thee at other time than this time!I'm not exactly sure how to go about reviewing Prince of Persia (Xbox version) since most every site o­n the planet has already proclaimed it the best thing since sliced bread and a huge contender for game of the year.
As promised earlier, Square-Enix today revealed the next installment in the Final Fantasy series.
It could make your WaveBird fly!

Is it sexy in here or is it just our new comments system? Mad props to Pyro for getting jiggy with the comments and matching them up with the forums look and feel. I'll try not to say "jiggy" again for the rest of the year, I promise. Seeing as how we're making changes around here I figured I'd mix up the week ahead a bit.
