Even today, people talk about the fabled summer gaming drought. I don't see it, and I haven't seen it for a few years now. Each of the last five reviews we have done has been above eight out of ten, including today's review of Rise of the Triad. That's not even to mention the glut of games provided by the Steam sale. Are you feeling a drought? I'm certainly not.

On Destructoid, the Podtoid crew released a new episode, Tony took a look at a Sonic/Mega Man crossover comic, Foom played the absurdly awesome Savant on Mash Tactics, and so much more happened on this fine day.
