Magic: The Gathering
has taken over every goddamn corner of my life. I'm not really sure how this happened. Ever since my first game in 6th grade, MTG and I have had a severe on-again-off-again relationship, burgeoning every few years, only to dwindle into nothing within a few months. Now I've begun a recent resurgence, playing with my room mate, or finding time to play Duels of The Planeswalkers. Hell, I've begun to dream in MTG. Seriously, I had a dream where my movements were dictated by fucking Magic cards. This game is fucking lucid-dream-inducing crack, folks. And I love every second of it.
Ok, enough of the IRL games, lets get to some video games! In today's cblogs, we've got a shit...LOAD of introduction blogs, a new podcast to look forward to, and some really lame fail. Enjoy!
