Let’s cut out from all this smaltzy Christmas/New Years stuff and pseudo-incesteous MixR cross-blog promotional junk for a moment and focus on what’s really important: me. I recently set out on a family road trip and headed down South cross-state to the artsy city of Melbourne, and - as a natural consequence - had to leave behind almost all of my gaming stuff - my PC, my 360, my Wii. Which, as any of you who have been forced to go kicking and screaming on a family vacation will know, is a devastating loss you will feel in your heart of hearts for the entire vacation, thereby ruining any chance you ever had of enjoying your holiday.

Even though last month marked the second-best November in video game sales history, numbers were still down 7% from the same time last year. November 2008 saw the release of Gears of War 2, Call of Duty: World at War, and Left 4 Dead, none of which sold an extraordinary amount of copies, but were assisted by ongoing sales from Wii Fit, Wii Play, and Mario Kart.
