I am going to call Bayonetta on this one: It's not that the show portrays geeks (I wouldn't call them gamers cause they play Mario kart with the drive wheel, no gamer will do that) as weird, everyone in the show is weird. Penny? She is so close to valley girl and so unreal that a waitress at a cheesecake factory can earn enough money to live alone. It's not that the show just gets the geeks wrong, it gets everyone wrong.
Let's look at it this way: COD BO has a zombie mode while L4D is a zombie game. Now, if you say COD zombie mode is better then you are saying that something Treyarch did a mod or an add-on is better than something Valve did as a game. That does put Treyarch a better game developing company than Valve. That is something I am not going to agree with.
Having said that, I am sure COD BO zombie mode is fun to play and very successful because it was brought back from COD WAW, but I think Valve put more effort on making L4D.
If Nintendo doesn't roll out the 3DS this year, it is going to get crushed by Microsoft and Sony with Kinect/Move during the Christmas season. So I would think the business side of Nintendo (or should I say, the entire Nintendo) would want to roll out 3DS this year.
According to Internet rumors (just search 3DS on Google news) 3DS will be out on Nov 20th. So far Nintendo has either confirm or deny the rumor. Hopefully, Nintendo will have something to announce on September 29.
