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 Iím back home, where Iím relegated to stealing wireless from my neighbors, because our only internet connection is my fatherís, and God help me if I should ever touch it. So, to all my L4D/Peggle friends, Iíd like to say I loved all the great times with you these past few months, and donít forget about me: Iíll be back up and running August 15th.
Ok, with that out of the way, onto everyoneís favorite concentrated community blog post! In todayís recap, weíve got a Mexican bee whoís 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.

Special little places
In this month's bloggers wanted prompt, we want to you talk about the physical places you may or may not appreciate in your daily lives as a gamer. Do you find the quiet monotony of public transportation like a train the perfect routine to always get a game in? Maybe you have a relative's home that brings a familiar and comforting feeling as a place and memory. I was just talking about when I played my 3DS in times of uncertainty in my car, so don't think any place is too small or insignificant to share. It could be a chair you've had for nearly half your life that you always sit on as you boot up your favorite gaming console. It could be the classic dream of a gaming room, filled wall-to-wall with your collection of video games *cough*ChillyBilly*cough* and memorabilia.
