Well, I guess that's where Dota 2 will come in. I am hyped for new SFxT and UMvC3 stuff at TGS...maybe some Nintendo shenanigans too.

I still read it. I start a new job this so depending on how it goes I might be able to add something to it, though, I mostly only keep up with Xbox and Nintendo news.
