Meanwhile, the Republican Party is too internally divided to figure out how to move forward after seeming to lose the battle of public opinion over the government shut down. (Washington Post)

It’s a good week for the Streisand Effect. The developers of Day One: Garry’s Incident tried to censor one bad review of their game and the story blew up far bigger than if they left it alone. (et geekera)

A NASCAR race this weekend had a massive crash. I’m shocked. Shocked.

And since I missed it yesterday, here’s OSW Review’s Royal Rumble 1992 review. It’s the one with Ric Flair. Awesomeballs.
