Over the past nine hours I have sweated, toiled, and occasionally ducked out to pat dogs and goof off. Here are the results.

The Xbox Story, Part 3: Facing the Public
Pat continues his enthralling look at the early history of this seminal console.

Activision Q2 – Record digital sales, more Black Ops DLC
Diablo aiming for release this year, and a new World of warcraft expansion on the go.

Lots of good things happened today, but I am already erasing the memory of them. That way I can waste even more time tomorrow writing out duplicate articles and deleting them at the last minute, cursing the specificity of search engines, and drowning my sorrows in strong tea.

Well, that and I have a roast in the oven – it smells delicious and I strongly desire to go poke it with a fork rather than sit here making up words for you. Sorry.

Further catch up on the past 24 hours through Johnny and Steph‘s wrap ups, or wait just a bit for Pat’s Bulletcast. VG247: You Have No Excuses For Not Knowing Everything All The Time.
