Lets Talk More Gaming

I don’t quite know how this happened but its April 2011 and I’ve only written a couple of blogs about video games.  I’ve got a huge backlog of stuff I want to write about.  Xbox Kinect.  Xbox Live Arcade games.  Nintendo 3DS.  iPhone Games.  Now is a good a time as any to start getting stuck into it.
