    Bored Games - All the beer in the world can't save Mario Party 8

    Everyone's got a different sense of what makes a killer party. For kids, maybe it's whacking a piata and overdosing on cake. For adults, it could be sticking a beer bong down your gullet and declaring yourself Mayor of Schlitz City. But since 1999, ...

    Elf Life - Shadowrun is fresh and exciting--and on its way to being obsolete
