Got to see Mafia II with some hands-on time, and there are quite a few new bells and whistles that we'll be telling you more about next week when the official announcement is made.

Tomorrow, we're getting the first hands-on time with Epic/People Can Fly's Bulletstorm, so that should be quite an experience, and Cilff Bleszinski, the artist formerly known as CliffyB, will also be there.

Red Dead Redemption is coming out soon. I'm so jazzed about that! But where is my announcement that it is coming to the PC? What's keeping you guys so long?!
