    Thanks for the article Ian. Looking forward to play Battlefield 3. Just want to inform all folks who live outside US that Xbox 360 is a great media Player. If you want to access Netflix and other streaming stations on your Xbox 360 you can use UnoTelly as I do to get around the geo block.

    It’ll help if you have some experience with Linux, but it’ll definaterly help if you’ve got some
    patience. 5 of the best video games with the worst graphics: Final Fantasy 7 – PSX.
    In some cases, they are not finished until long after anyone who knew the original creator had long passed.
