They say the first step to curing an addiction is admiting that you have one. I feel a little bit better now that I got that off my chest. And now for some wonderful links:

Jason's Pick:

Patrick's Pick:

Nintendo Ships SNES Controllers For Wii: Doesn't Nintendo of America realize gamers would pay a premium for these kinds of goodies?

Stephen's Pick:

The EA-TakeTwo Merger Drama In-Depth: Leigh Alexander makes her Kotaku debut with a comprehensive report on the past, present and future of EA's attempt to buy Take Two. Great start, Leigh!

Tracey's Pick:

2008 is the year of gaming: It seems like people could proclaim this year after year, but with "GTA IV" expected to make $400 million in its first week alone, this year is definitely going to be big.
