The lights are on
Happy new year! Now that that's out of the way, we can go back to feeling sorry for ourselves over the current gaming drought. Aside from the release of Lost in Shadow and some Johnny Cash Rock Band DLC, there's not a whole lot going on this week. At least that gives us another temporary reprieve so we can keep chipping away at our backlogs.

Blade Runner!!! ("o")
Shaman King is finally gonna end... I've been reading it since the beggining of Shonen Jump! Wow time has flown by...
It's all just waiting for Dead Space 2 right now........
PSN is getting Angry Birds (Mini for PS3/PSP), Tetris, and a few other games. Check it out via the Playstation Blog.
Other than attempting to get the Microsoft Points to finally pick up Ilomilo, there's nothing that I'll really be getting this week.
Good. Gives me some time to save up some money after those holidays.
Jonny Cash DLC priceless
Lost in Shadows looks great. But I don't care about it right now - I am still enjoying Vanquish, DKC Returns and Sly Collection from Christmas.
Gotta say tho, January 2011 looks horrible compared to January 2010. I mean, Bayonetta, No More Heroes 2 Desperate Struggles, and Darksiders came out last year in January. It's hard to beat that trifecta.
Sweet, Blade Runner on Blu-Ray...
Lost in shadow for me
Why another Blade Runner? The 5 different version box set wasn't enough? lol. Otherwise, yeah very slow.
