Friday Bomb Drop

A nice wrap-up of a week that featured not one but two five-star game reviews that went against the grain. Oh, and a Zune giveaway!

It's that time of year again, and the game releases are non-stop. It's a great time to be a player and a hell of a time to be a reviewer--but the boys have it on lock downstairs and have been pumping out a plethora of reviews for all of the latest releases. Of course, the week wouldn't be complete without your reviews, a new trivia leader, some crazy rants in the boards, and a Gears of War skinned Zune Giveaway. Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments.

I dont believe it this is the second  week running that  im metioned on the Friday Bomb Drop. This is so cool thanks  coonce :)

Posted by Irishjohn

The Bomb Drop has proved a great idea already.  Keep it up!

What about that PS3 blog though? Can you put a warning up if advertised community blogs are going to be blatant fanboyism?
Posted by TomA

Why do you guys mention the Bomb should have a face podcast on here.It is one of the worst podcasts i've ever heard in my life.
