This Week in Gaming News: 7/28/12 – 8/3/12

Due to being rather busy this week/weekend with work and personal life stuff (i.e. Graduation), this week’s Gaming News section is going to be truncated. I’ll use simple notes to get the news to you all. Next week should return to form. Thanks!

I've been writing about video games for years and playing them even longer. You'll find me playing all types of games, old and new. Mega Man III is greater than Mega Man II.

    I’m thinking about picking up Cold Stream. Been looking for an excuse to fire up L4D2 again. Have you had a chance to try it?
