AADL-GT: Ann Arbor District Library Game Tournaments

The videogame industry is teetering on the precipice of the next console war. With Microsoft's Xbox 360 already established in the market, all eyes are on Sony and Nintendo, and what they'll announce at E3 in just a few short weeks. Sony's PS3 will be powerful and fast, but also embroiled in a disc format war could be disastrous for a product that may launch above $500. Nintendo's console, still codenamed 'revolution', has a radical new controller that offers intuitive play to a larger audience, a possible $199 pricetag, and a downloadable back catalog of 20 years worth of classic games. The all-important holiday season is fast approaching. Who will emerge victorious from the wreckage of the next console war? And, define 'victorious'!

COME SPECULATE WILDLY with a panel of gamers at Malletts Creek Branch on Sunday, from 1-3, featuring AADL-GT Season 1 Champion and Season 2 Runner-up, [gtplayer:143] (Stephen Savage), seasoned GT commentator and Season 2 comeback-story finalist [gtplayer:288] (Daniel Burgener), Lansing-based adult tournament competitor and gaming enthusiast Omokusaki (Zach Lark), and yours truly as your host and resident tattoo-bearing Nintendo Fanboy!

MC Otakon: Furuba

Fruits Basket: Tohru Freaks
Tohru Freaking Out. Nuff said.

Ohayo gozaimasu!
MC Otakon is back for another night of discussion, quizes, my home-made(okay, out of the box) brownies and Anime viewing. All the free books have been taken, but if you've read the series you are welcome to drop in to Malletts Creek on Wednesday night at 7pm. Be advised.. like AADL GT, I have a tendency to run overtime to watch an extra episode. And I prefer the sub, not the dub, much to certain fans' dismay.

Okay now to discussion of the books.. this week we're talking about 4-6. Some of my favorite moments after the break.
