  • The announcement has been up since Wednesday night, but just a reminder the site will be moving to a new server late tonight and there could be temporary difficulties in accessing it. Make sure to follow along with my Twitter where I’ll be able to communicate throughout. UPDATE: The move has been made and things seem to have gone relatively smoothly. If you’re seeing this you made it, congrats!
  • I’ve noticed that most people who comment on the articles are doing so without logging into Intense Debate which is the comment system that was installed in November. There are several advantages to signing up with Intense Debate so I encourage you to check it out especially if you are a regular contributor to the comments.
  • Shawn Drotar has relaunched 5WGaming (formerly 5W-G). You’ll see me on occasion linking over there for some in-depth articles that primarily have to do with the video game industry but also involvement in the sports gaming community. There is also a guest writer program which is already up and running.
  • The Skate 2 demo is out on the 360 and will be arriving on the PS3 next Thursday. Anyone have impressions?
  • Another Q&A for 5 on 5 NHL Arcade. Most of the info has been covered in previous ones though it does narrow the release down to early February.
  • Jon Robinson interviews MLB 09 The Show cover athlete Dustin Pedroia.
  • Look for a new Padrecast to be up by the end of the weekend with discussion centered on the MLB 2K9 features.
