Feb 7th - 13th

ItÂ's well known that GWJ keeps it real in the hizzy, which is why NBA Street V3 is The Game of the Week. EA Games ban notwithstanding, the NBA Street series has proven to be surprisingly fun over the years and it looks like the latest version maintains the trend.

Winning Eleven 8

'I was surprised, but I always say nothing surprises me in football.' Les Ferdinand I used to play soccer back in the day, a dark time where none of you were lucky enough to have me in your lives yet. I can't say I was a super star or anything but I was great at knocking people over and stealing the ball.


Comic books; never had any use for Â"˜em.  I know thatÂ's not necessarily the warm fuzzy way into a lot of your hearts, but theyÂ've always held the same kind of appeal to me as anime, which is to say not a lot.
