Today kicked off the opening ceremonies for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, England. The world's best and brightest will take part in a test of will, strength, courage, and ability! I however, will be testing the different flavors of microwave popcorn in my house, enjoying the trials and tribulations from afar. Perhaps all this heroic competition will even get me playing some multi-player games.
Across the network we also celebrated things that were not so physically strenuous. From the 411 on the new Nintendo 3DS to the best Batman toy ever made, we have plenty of news to keep you indoors and lazy this weekend. Any Olympic event you guys are specifically excited about?
