Before I descend into writing stories about some mad woman that called the police because her son was playing GTA in the middle of the night, I’m going to stop for Christmas.
As you’ve no doubt noticed, our post-rate’s dropped off steadily over December: Steph’s taking a well-earned rest; Nathan’s doing whatever it is Texan students do over the Holidays; Johnny’s getting ready to start full-time in January, and I’ve got a houseful of screaming people. This year’s dead to us.
If anything earth-shattering happens over the next couple of weeks I’ll stick it up. If not, I’ll hibernate. I want to say a giant thank you to all our readers. You’ve given us amazing support this year, and it’s not really possible to tell you how grateful I am. We’re here to stay, and it’s all thanks to you.
We’ll be back at full power on January 4, 2010. Please have a brilliant holiday. See you next year!

Common Sense Media has released its annual list of 10 games parents should avoid purchasing, wrapping, and setting under the tree this year.
Titled “10 Cool Games That Are Uncool for Kids”, the list offers “safe alternatives” for each title that is currently popular and not safe for children.
Here it is:
- Assassin’s Creed (Mirror’s Edge)
- Borderlands (Infamous)
- Brutal Legend (Ghostbusters)
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (Battlefield: Bad Company)
- Dead Space: Extraction (Deadly Creatures)
- Dragon Age: Origins (Braid)
- Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony (Batman: Arkham Asylum)
- Demon’s Souls (Uncharted 2: Among Thieves)
- Left 4 Dead 2 (Overlord II)
- Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars (C.O.P.: The Recruit)
We wonder at the compilers’ choice of Overlord II with all the baby seal bashing that goes on, but opinions are opinions, we reckon.

Bailiffs at the door? Repossession notices hidden from the wife at the back of the shed? The holes in little Billy’s shoes impossible to disguise any more? Don’t worry: buy an Xbox 360 and the global financial disaster will be a million miles away this Christmas.
In what probably isn’t the most tasteful press release in the world, Microsoft’s claimed that “British families are set to spend more quality time together than in the last ten years this Christmas, as the economic downturn drives more families to stay at home and enjoy entertainment together.”
Thankfully, Xbox 360 is here to save the day.
“In tough economic times, home entertainment products traditionally do well, as consumers tend to want to stay in and save money,” said Martin Olausson, Director of Digital Media Research at Strategy Analytics.
“Gaming and entertainment consoles like the Xbox 360 are seen as good value, given they can entertain the whole household through Christmas and beyond.”
And beyond? Hot shit. Full thing after the break.
