It’s been an embarrassingly long time since the last post, so for that I apologize.  The good news is that I’ve got a LOT to talk about today. The short version: finished Infamous 2 played a bunch (perhaps too much) of Duke Nukem Forever (PC) played a tiny bit more of The Witcher 2, escaping …

>I’d thought I’d handled my 360’s recent death rather calmly, all things considered; it happened the night before The Lost & Damned came out, so I already knew I wouldn’t be playing it – I imagine I’d have been a lot more pissed off if I’d bought the DLC and then found out my 360 …
