January 16th, 2011
Three-day weekends are the best, aren’t they? It’s more precious time to catch up on TV and gaming, including less-popular games like Laundry Hustle, Scrub the Bathtub, and Clean Your Room Really Fast! No rest for Jeff, though — he’s preparing to crash LittleBigPlanet 2′s launch party and Guinness World Record attempt in NYC on Monday. LittleBigPlanet 2′s Tuesday release also marks the release of Mass Effect 2 for PS3 on PSN and Blu-ray, and marks a week until the release of Dead Space 2 for PS3 on January 25th. Crazy month!
