I would just like to say today has been the greatest day anyone has ever had. First I got a depressing letter from AOL saying that I somehow owe them £60. Then I went further into the mail to find a package from someone called Yanier. Is there anyone else here who gets caught for a second when someone refers to Niero by his real name? Anyway inside the package was my Become shirt (#223 bitches) which I naturally put on immediately. Then I go into town and buy season 1 of 30 Rock having thought about it for some time. So I then spend the rest of the day watching that. I also got an email from Sony with a handy MAG beta code. Then I got an email from Hamza with a nice fresh Uncharted 2 beta code. And now as I'm writing this I have Demetri Martin's Person special on TV. Then there's all the time I've spent today playing NHL10. Awesome moments where my Be a Pro player (N. Sykora naturally) wins games through an awesome pass or a blistering/lucky shot. SPORTS!!
Oh yeah, and I have cake too. Good cake, the kind you need a fork for.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Japanese culture is everywhere in video games, not to mention that Japanese developers always seem to put their own spin on a game. What does Japan mean to your favorite games?
