The Daily Hotness: Check out our rooms (8/28/08)

When Brad asked all of us to send in pictures of our rooms last week, I was all too happy to oblige. His timing was perfect, after all: I had just finished unpacking from my move and everything was in pristine order (as seen above). Since I have far more stuff then I do shelf space — and my shelves are rather deep — every row of videogames, anime, and books have another row of media crammed behind them.

Madden 09 gets reviewed, a teenager gets beaten up over a PlayStation 3, our crew at PAX sent word about how much fun they’re having, and plenty more happened at Destructoid today.
