Just a couple of days ago, we wrote about the somewhat limited unveiling of the Xbox One. Yes, Microsoft is coming out with a new game console sometime this year and managed to leave a lot of questions unanswered about what, exactly, this new critter will be.
Our millions (thousands? hundreds? tens?) of fans will no doubt remember when we selected The Video Game Critic as our Awesome Site of the Week. There was a good reason for that –heading over there is where anyone with questions about video games past …
