Looks like launch dates elsewhere remain in the dark. So what do you think? Are you jumping in? Wait and see? Sworn off of MMO’s? I’m a wait-and-see gal myself. [...]

I just discovered these lovely animated shorts set to recordings of people talking about their missed 9/11 victims and other cool Americans. I embedded a couple below. More great ones on their site.
Hey, there’s a blue bitizen who looks familiar! Tiny Tower is one of those games I’m not really sure I can recommend despite the fact that I’m obsessed with it.

First: My thoughts are with those affected by the tsunami. I’m still having trouble comprehending it all. American Red Cross has a special fund for it now if you care to donate. And now: I’m heading to PAX East tonight for fun and games. Just to attend, not to exhibit. Say hi if you see [...]
