Music has always been a vital part of the gaming experience, from the "bleeps" and "bloops" of the old arcade games to the midi soundtracks of the original console generations, to the sweeping orchestral scores of today. Much of it is iconic, at least to the point where you recognize the game as soon as you hear it (sometimes I still can't get the most addicting song from Dr. Mario out of my head).
Wasn't sure what to blog about today. So, when in doubt, blog about somebody else's blog!
Wow, lots of controversial comments and vitriol in response to Game Informer's post about President Obama making a cameo in Madden 11.
No, I'm not talking about watching Roseann Barr (or does she still just go by "Roseann?") doing the Limbo.
Intended as a companion piece to my "Why I didn't buy Alan Wake" post (recently featured on this week's (last week's?) Blog Herding (thanks, Annette!)), here's where I admit that I finally broke down and bought this game.
It's a seemingly never-ending war, where both sides are so entrenched that diplomacy is useless. Neither side will yield an inch. The carnage on the battlefield is almost unbelievable, even if you are a participant in this war.

As many of you know, Activision president Bobby Kotick has reiterated his desire to charge the typical Call of Duty player for multiplayer capability.
Finally finished Mass Effect 2 last night. I won't spoil it here, so don't worry. You can read on. I have two thoughts on the ending of the game, first as a game and then as a story.
This morning I read Phil Kollar's post about why Alan Wake didn't sell well. It was a pretty good post. Rather than add my 2 cents into the long string of comments at the bottom of that post, I thought I would post my own.
A shoutout to you, the little people...um, I mean great people on this site.
