The death of hardcore?!?

There are a lot of sides to this issue and I'm sort of thinking out loud here, but the first thing that struck me when presented with this idea is… so what is it that hardcore gamers want? What games qualify as hardcore and which don't?  Does there even need to be a distinction?

Softcore Wars: Rumble Roses vs the DOA Girls

Bargain hunting is hot... RIGHT NOW

Talking theater in Seattle

So I'm not sure how many of you reading this out there are theater or musical fans, but I'm sure there's got to be a couple, right?  Right?!?

Dem Ol' 360 No-Download Blues

There was supposed to be a downloadable update of 4 new heroes and 4 villains (!) for the game scheduled for 4/10, but the day has come and gone and no update yet.
