Joystiq reports that Radio Shack will begin selling games again on September 24th. I say again because they have sold games in the past. I recall being a much younger person, rummaging through their selection of IBM-compatible computer games (and bypassing the Commodore selection). I believe I picked up King’s Quest from a Radio Shack. Now, ironically, they will not be selling PC games – only console titles.

Improper Nutrition + Sleep Deprivation = DEAD
Don’t get me wrong. I am a fan of the hardcore raiding. I understand the need to frag that dragon, or complete that quest for those tricked-out shoes, but you know what? A gamer who quits and sleeps away, lives to quest another day. Correction – The deceased was from Guangzhou, the story was out of Beijing.
