Evening Reading: A Brian Appears

On Monday we'll have a new face here. Brian Leahy is joining the Shack team as our West Coast Editor. He's been working over at G4TV.com the past few years where he did a great job and he claims to have been lurking around here for the better part of a decade (we checked; his user name goes back to 2004). With Brian's arrival you'll be seeing more out of the Shack in the coming weeks. Along with beefing up our daily news feed, he'll also be the new master of Evening Reading.

Yep, that's right, starting on Monday this space will be his. Now he swears as a long-time Shacker that he won't be doing the wall-o-text. I guess we'll see. As for me, my op-ed will move to its permanent home as the weekly Videogames.G.Lee column. And there are many plans in the works. You've seen the beginnings of our review program, which will be one of the first things I focus more on. There are a couple other things in the works that I'll be able to share very soon, too.

Tough as it's been coming up with something to say five days a week I have to say I've really grown to enjoy doing Evening Reading. I'll miss it. Guess that's what the comments are for though, huh?

    I don't own an Xbox 360 but my brother in law does and LOVES gaming so he will enjoy it. Besides this T-Shirt kicks all kinds of ass.

    Thanks ShackFly!

          Because they don't make money and therefore can't be taken to small claims for damages.

            Same here. But they have developed a bad habit of "playing" at night and since they have bells on their collars, we here them all through the house at 2am. I actually have grown pretty fond of them. And they make me laugh when I play WoW and they sit on the side of my desk staring at the screen like they wanna kill what's on it.

            We got 2 newborn kitties from our neighbor because my daughter said "daddy, can I have a kittie pweeeeeaaaassssee" And apparently she didn't want one to be alone so we had to get 2 :(

          When I was younger.. I went to a friend's house to play NES. He left me in his basement to go get a drink or something. He had two cats. After he left they started circling me and hissing at me. So I got up to go upstairs... and they jumped on the stairs before I could get all the way and they started hissing at me some more.. and ever since then.. I've just never liked cats. :(

          Unfortunately that's a true story.

          As I have said many many times before... Get a thing of lipstick. Apply it LIBERALLY in a circle around your cat's anus, and watch where that shit ends up in your house. Cats are 10 times more disgusting than dogs.

      I like how the game Bayonetta depicts cats as existing both in the real world and Purgatory, allowing them to see angels and demons... which explains their behavior.
