Our 10 Most Anticipated Video Game Sequels of 2010

2009 is over. The decade’s done. And after a slew of games were delayed from this holiday season, now we look ahead to 2010.

But when I was writing this list, I found it hard to narrow it down to just 10 games; there’s a lot of good stuff coming out next year. So I decided to split it the list into two: the tried-and-true franchises …

An Interview with Daniel Suarez: “This Is Not a How-To Manual”

Think back to your childhood. If you were a geek who was born in the late ’70s like I was, what are some of your most cherished memories? Riding your bike? Maybe a little. Thanksgiving in Fargo?
