Plugged In

Time to get back to work

Can a guy not even take a vacation anymore? Seriously, I hang up my controller for a couple of weeks and when I come back, it’s as if the whole video game world has gone insane.

Drums in “Guitar Hero IV”?

Nintendo under fire from critics?

Microsoft addressing XBox Live’s DRM issues?

“RBI Baseball” making a return?

EA extending its offer to purchase Take-Two again? (OK, so that’s not much of a surprise.)

With all of this stuff going on and E3 fast approaching, it’s shaping up to be a busy summer. Rest assured that we’ll be here to bring you all the latest. Also, check back later this week for reviews of “GTA IV” and “Wii Fit.”
