What We Learned This Week: Week Of August 22, 2010


Posted August 29, 2010 - By Stephen Johnson

I regard each week as an opportunity for growing and learning, and by "growing" and "learning," I actually mean "glowering" and "leering." But hey, that's just me. A lot went on this week, and I've learned some important lessons about life and the video gaming industry. Here are the top four things I learned this week.

Even with all that going on, we still had time to lovingly craft the following original videos for you:
