The Merlot Minute for August 23rd - 29th

[Author's Note: This was ready to go for Sunday afternoon but I hit "save" instead of "schedule". I suppose it's just as well, people should be getting back into town now after camping anyway. Hope you all had a good Labor Day Weekend!]  

We're back this week with a much meatier week in news. With Pax Prime going on this weekend, we're bound to have even more come next week. Let's jump right in!

Elsewhere on the web, Microsoft charges you an extra $50 if you decide to buy a Kinect later (why would you) and Telltale has released it's first teaser for their Game of Thrones title!

Thanks for the minute of your time! See ya next week!
