Even better than the real thing.

G'day ladies and gentlemen, I hope life is treating you all as well as you deserve it to.
There has been all sorts of cool stuff going on at planet Buttonhole lately and our future looks magnificent.
We've had some great articles lately, such as Australian Ninja's first Buttonhole Q&A, which he did with Jesse Reklaw from Slow Wave. Take a look, if you haven't already, it is some good reading.
Just for fun, I posted a few pics of Buttonhole's first Birthday bash.
For all of you wrestling lovers, there have been plenty of articles to enjoy. Wrestling has been an even bigger part of my life than usual of late. I've been watching a bunch of cool WWE DVDs from Shock and THQ sent me Day of Reckoning 2 for Gamecube along with the PSP version of Smackdown vs Raw 06. I'm going to do a combined review of those games, which should be posted really soon.
On the topic of wrasslin', our Wrestling Section Lead, that masked marvel of mayhem known as the Gimmick, has been reviewing some of those excellent WWE DVDs, as well as doing his Pay Per View reports, the most recent of which was for No Way Out.
Gimmick also loves his Aussie Sports, like AFL football. He's expressed some interest in doing another AFL footy tipping contest on the forums and I'm all for that idea. I'll give people more info about that once I know the details. Basically though, anyone would be welcome to join in and whoever wins will get a prize of some sort. Most likely a few games, CDs or DVDs. We'll see how it goes, but that sounds like fun to me.
Just quickly, I want to mention that Scott Tipton, who did a Q&A article with Buttonhole, has a new website. He and his fellow former Movie Poop Shooters Chris Ryall, Scott Bowden and Joshua Jabucha can now be found at www.comics101.com. I recommend that you check the new site out and make sure to tell 'em that Sammy sent ya.
Buttonhole recently added another supporter to our list, which should mean more cool DVD movie reviews for us (and you). I'll talk more about that when I've reviewed the first couple of titles they sent us.
Speaking of our support publishers, Sony is back with Buttonhole in a big way, which I'm very excited about. They sent us some fantastic games recently. One of them is Shadow of the Colossus, which I'll be reviewing. Another is Soul Calibur III, Australian Ninja seemed like the perfect choice to review that one.
So, as you can see, times are good. Thanks for reading. As always, if you want to ask about anything, or pass on any thoughts, you're most welcome to shoot me an email.
Please be good to each other and share your toys.
