Xbox Live Arcade The Maw

One of my favorite styles of games when I was a kid was the platform. This is the game type that Mario made king and eventually spawned such icons as Sonic the Hedgehog and Crash Bandicoot.

From there the flood gates opened to countless others that either copied or expanded on Mario’s domain. Some good, some not so good, some named Jak and Dexter that took away hours of my life.

Me, I am here because my DVD player is here, and my wife and son are here, and my copies of the "Return of the Living Dead" DVDs are here. Omaha, is also where I keep my 'waiting to be treasured' set of "Friday the 13th" films are which is not nearly as important as my wife and son, but are still serious business.

I'll get to the zombie fest in a minute.

PS3 Will Have 3D Games, 360 will follow

In case you missed our My Bloody Valentine 3D podcast, it's my duty to inform you that 3D is in fact the new 2D. After being beat to the punch at this year's Consumer Electronics Show by the PS3 crew, IGN speculates that XBOX360 will be right on their 3D coattails:
