To all lawmakers and judges, video games are not evil.  They don’t turn people into murderers.  What’s more, video games don’t make people take guns to public places and wreak havoc.  Thank you.  We appreciate your time.

Trophy Whores 277 – Beyond Twitch and PSX Plus

This week, Alex, Yield, Troy and Frosty dish out news and opinions like there’s a Labor Day sale at the news-and-opinions store.  I’m sorry; Tricky’s atrocious segues have wreaked havoc on my intellect.  Tricky’s segues are as bad as the Cubs’ World Series title drought.

Trophy Whores 244 – Super Whores Sunday

Tricky and Alex celebrated Super Bowl Sunday with each other — as well as a guest who has no rooting interest in the game.  To be fair, Tricky is a Giants fan, and Alex likes Packers, so no one has a stake in the Lombardi Trophy this year. Some people play for trophies and accolades on…
