Awright, I guess since this topic is actually still kinda useful, I will post in it.
Videogame news: Battlefield 3 is coming out in October, followed by Skyrim in early November. Disgaea 4 just came out on the sixth; Blazblue CS II+ is possibly coming out in America for the 360 and PS3.
Book news: Ted Dekkers new book just came out on the fourth, and is the first part of a new trilogy. Also Priest's Graveyard came out this year in April. The Son of Neptune is going to be released soon, Fox and I are happy.
