I am a sad panda today. Well, I should say I was, because all the tequila and blended strawberries in my system are actually making me chipper. Nontheless, I no longer have Xbox Live. My spring semester of school has ended, and now I’m back home, where I’m relegated to stealing wireless from my neighbors, because our only internet connection is my father’s, and God help me if I should ever touch it. So, to all my L4D/Peggle friends, I’d like to say I loved all the great times with you these past few months, and don’t forget about me: I’ll be back up and running August 15th.
Ok, with that out of the way, onto everyone’s favorite concentrated community blog post! In today’s recap, we’ve got a Mexican bee who’s got a penchant for reporting, the first mention of Sega Channel on the cblogs that I can remember, and NO FAIL! ARIBA!
Cblogs: insert witty phrase here.
(P.S. To get you in the mood of this festive Cinco De Mayo, here's some great music to enjoy during your recap)
*-A fantastic article pointing out the flaws in the current game-pricing model every company seems keen on (btw, a 60-hr God of War would be awesome).

*-Don’t hate, get funky: why Toejam and Earl in Panic on Funkotron is awesome.
