In the past year there have been a lot of changes in the gaming community, and we've mostly been inactive that whole time. For example, here are a number of topics we never got around to discussing:
Rock Band vs Guitar Hero. I don't even know which systems which games are on, or which controllers are compatible with each. I only know Jetwolf Has A Band Or Three.
Playstation 3: Not dead yet. Backwards compatibility: dead, with a fork in it.
Playstation Portable: new model with microphone (woohoo!), brighter screen (woohoo!), and scan lines (boo!).
Good Old Games - now in open beta. Someone's selling classic PC games for $5-10 each with no DRM.
EA & its fixation with DRM vs hordes of angry consumers on Amazon
I'm going to try to stir things up a bit again, so look for some new topics to appear!
