TGIF! Jonathan and Tara prepare for the weekend by gushing about the reason they got into game journalism: Mafia Wars! They also talk about a bevy of cheap, awesome iPhone games, the official Playstation mobile app (not as cool as it sounds), the return of Conan to gaming, the declining ratings of the Video Game Awards, and a whole lot more. We've also got some eye candy in the form of Fallout:New Vegas trailer, and direct-feed Uncharted 3 gameplay! Tara was lucky enough to be at the Uncharted 3 event last weeks, and she shares everything she knows (at least for now).
TGIMFF! Less talk, more rock:
Story #1 - Can you be gangsta and Facebook at the same time? YES!
Story #5 - VGA ratings drop for fourth year in a row.

Far too many people do not understand that alcohol, drugs, and driving DO NOT MIX. The message is simple guys: Drinking and Driving? Over the Limit? Under Arrest... don't put yourself or others in danger. Law enforcement officials will be out in full force all over the country from December 16th through the 30th, cracking down on drunk drivers. Beyond putting your life at risk, you could cost yourself a bundle of time and money: jail time, the loss of their driver's license, higher insurance rates, and dozens of other unanticipated expenses from attorney fees, and court costs, car towing and repairs, lost time at work.. the list goes on. The worst/best part of drinking and driving is that it can be avoided so easily. You can still go out and have fun, just plan ahead: if you are going to drink, designate a driver, call a taxi, use mass transit, or find some kind of sober ride program.
