"Of the Month" December ’07

Link of the Month:
My Wish List!
Christmas is fast approaching, and if you were REALLY my friend you’d buy me a dozen (or so) things off of my Amazon wish list! Go on, be a friend! I’m shameless!

Game of the Month:
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
The first Zelda game for the Wii, Twilight Princess offers up a handful of innovations, twists, and surprises, but mostly it is firmly in the tradition of the 3D Zelda games, which is a good thing. The Zelda games have routinely been called some of the best games ever made. This is certainly up there with the best of them.

Album of the Month:
The Chipmunks: Greatest Christmas Hits
Ahh… you might not remember this, but there was a time (before the 80s, really) when Alvin and The Chipmunks didn’t make you want to violently vomit. Case in point is this collection of all of their best Christmas songs. These songs are simple, fun, charmingly innocent, and the interactions between the characters are honestly, legitimately funny. Listen to this wonderful album (download it from Amazon’s new MP3 download service—it kicks iTunes’s ass). Then go and watch the trailer for the new Chipmunks movie and cry and cry and cry.
