Games of the week for 12/30/07: Screw Call of Duty 4 on Veteran edition

Seriously, who was the crackhead who decided that Veteran mode was even remotely fun to play? It's not even worth completing the levels for 40 gamerpoints a pop. In fact, I'd rather cut out my own eyes and shove them up my arse, that is wha...

Hold your Hadoukens: Street Fighter IV is more than a year away
