REVIEWS Astro A38 Wireless Headset Review
With the launch of the A38s, Astro has clearly shown that they can rock our eardrums off even if we aren’t sitting in our living rooms.

Destiny Review
With Bungie's leap to next-generation platforms and interstellar space closer to home, I wonder if E.T. is out there somewhere.

PREVIEWS Skylanders Trap Team Preview
While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

I should point out I'm 28 years old. But I've gone back to school to better myself and get a career so I've been doing some back to school shopping, and for those of you who are going back in September what are you getting for the new year?

College has changed a lot since I was a student 7 years ago and I feel so out of touch. I also hate that I'm going to be the old fart surrounded by kids 18-21.

Would it make you feel less old if I told you we just got done buying school supplies for my son who starts first grade on Monday?

We had to buy like a dozen different things for him which is way more than I remember having to have in school.

I'm starting my last semester of undergrad next week. So that's fun.

Not doing any back to school shopping, though.

Back to school shopping was always fun for me. New fountain pens, and I worshipped the neatness in my exercise books for the first week. Obviously, it all goes to shit.

If it helps Wes, I had a 40 year old in my class at uni.

Yea I started college again as well after about 8 years. Honestly I don't care if the people there are younger than me (I'm 26). I t is a bit weird interacting with people that are too young to drink, though.

Can't believe they're turning Back-to-School into another consumer holiday.
