Über Geek Blog raised a good question on Twitter: How did we used to get our games? These days, we are lucky. We have Amazon when we are too lazy to leave our house. We have Gamestop begging us to put money down on hot, new, unreleased games when we go in to pick something up on day of release. Thanks to the Internet, we know when games have been delayed, when they have gone gold, when they have shipped, and which stores will be having midnight openings with the best stuff. It wasn't always like that, though.
Now, before I go any farther, I don't want you to think that I'm going all "Get off my lawn! Why, back in my day, we had to walk to Children's Palace in 3 feet of snow, uphill all the way, to get a copy of 'Super Mario Brothers 2'!" Nope, instead I'm going to take some time, and do some reminiscing about how it used to be. I'm not saying that it used to be good, I'm not saying it used to be bad, but it's how I remember it. So, let's make sure the flux capacitor is fluxxing, and set the time circuits back to the early 1980's...

Good day, my friends! I trust we all have survived the beginning of the week, that dreaded scourge of life that we call "Monday"? I certainly hope so, because I don't see shambling zombie hoards having even the slightest interest in this, or any, blog. So, push aside your craving for brains, and let's see what Indiana has to offer this week, shall we?
