Video Games are Space Hogs

Posted on July 13, 2010 - Filed Under Entertainment, gaming, Ranting | Leave a Comment

It used to be that a video game console sat on your entertainment stand and took up very little space. A few games and a couple of controllers were very easy to manage, but now it’s completely different. With all the accessories you can accumulate it gets a little crazy in the living […]

I can’t remember it being this hot so early in the summer before. Hot and humid with no breeze to cool things down a little. Usually here in the store if we open the front and back doors we get a nice cool wind blowing through, but all week it’s been dead air, […]
