Happy Turkey Day, fools!
One of the most interesting things about holidays is the traditions that we and our families adopt, and the memories that form with them.

I’m also playing Modern Warfare 2, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, and I’m hoping to be knocking out some Assassin’s Creed II or Left 4 Dead 2 next week. What about you guys? What will you be playing during Thanksgiving week?
