It's hump day! And it's time for your recap. This is not only my last recap for the week, it's my last for a couple of weeks. I'm headed up to the Great White North and I'm really going to miss doing this. It's hard enough being at home surrounded by all my junk without a task, let alone being on vacation surrounded by someone else's junk... I'm gonna go nuts.

Anyway, for the two weeks I'm gone, Scary Womanizing Pig Mask has agreed to pick up my slack. With luck, my columns will still continue to come in on schedule.

And here's what all of you did today:

*- Why we play scary games
*- It's on the front page, but I don't care. Beyond Good and Evil 2 tease is far beyond good.
*- I wasn't going to get WiiFit, but the possibilities now intrigue me
*- Surf314 has an interesting game concept going
*- This was meant to be a pick and, yet, somehow I managed to not put it in the recap. Sorry about that.

About Rodney Dangerfield:

The mere inclusion of Rodney Dangerfield can vastly improve anything. Films, music, toasters, anything. In particular, the force of Rodney Dangerfield could elevate video games to the level in which they are accepted by the mainstream as a true art form, bringing together people of all races, creeds and tax brackets in peace and harmony.

RIP Rodney.
