Pitfall Mugs Hold 8-Bits of Coffee

007 Legends Video Game Now Shipping: No, I Expect You to Play, Mr. Bond.
I am a huge fan of James Bond. I grew up watching all the movies and always thought of Roger Moore as Bond more than Sean Connery. I have to admit though, out of all of the actors to play James Bond over the years, Daniel Craig is hands-down the best in my opinion.

Singularity: Manipulate Time and Blow Sh*T Up
There’s nothing I like better than a good FPS, and Raven’s upcoming shooter Singularity looks like it could be a whole lotta fun, thanks to its use of time-manipulation as a game dynamic.
