Daily Elysium: Human Contact

Gamers can be an isolated lot, sitting as they often do in front of their monitor controlling a series of loosely connected pixels, engaging wave after wave of hyper-violent enemy pixels for control of Pixel Planet.  Naturally, a certain number of people, which could probably be best defined as most people, think of gamers as damaged goods and feel that we should either 'get out of the house

Ground Based Assault

It's a pretty impressive event that keeps me from watching the NCAA tournament. However, this war, and its news coverage has had me absolutely riveted. I'm always nervous about going to bed each night for fear that I'm going to miss some important announcement.

We find ourselves lingering over the news just a little longer before we hit the remote's Input button and switch the picture over to our console. CNN.com gets just as many refreshes as GamersWithJobs.com.

GBA SP Review

PC Magazine has a short review of the soon-to-be-released (this Saturday) GBA SP. Looks like we have a winner, they gave it a final score of 4/5 umm... circles. At full charge and with the light on they found the new GBA to last 9 - 10 hours of play time.
