This week kicks off two bitchin’ contests, one for Bionic Command Rearmed and another for House of the Dead Overkill. We are also blessed to have a surprise guest stop by, Mr. Duke Lombardi, to review Animal Crossing. You’ll laugh so hard you might actually forget to ask “Who is Duke Lombardi?”

We've posted our fair share of lady-ogling features over the years, but the past week has seen an (apparently) alarming number of misogynistic stories go live. We're here to set the record straight, that we do indeed love specific things about women.

After sleeping off the exhaustion of E3 (a 72 hour task, we'll have you know), we kicked off Seven out of 10 Week, a yawnbration of everything ho-hum about the games industry. Strange how we can argue and bicker about such uninspiring topics, eh?
