Quote of the Moment
"I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but regardless of whether you're blowing off someone's limbs or collecting Super Happy Tree Fruit, if you're playing videogames, the 'mature boat' has sailed a long, long time ago."
--from this IGNsider article. Fans of Nintendo often get mocked as "kiddy" gamers, since the games by that company tend to follow the Japanese "cute" tradition, as opposed to other system that have a focus on grittier, "mature" games.

Link of the Moment
For EGM's anniversary issue Seanbaby wrote an article EGM's Crapstravaganza: The 20 Worst Video Games of All Time which is now available online, in a slightly more raw form. Funny, though there was something about seeing this stuff in print that doesn't translate to the web.

Just in case anyone out there was still wondering what PhillyClassic looked like, this AtariAge Photo Album is probably close to being the canonical online view. Sure, on one level it was just a big honkin' room (well, a ballroom I guess) but man...what a room!
