With the opening ceremonies less than two months away, it doesn't seem like Olympic fever has really caught hold yet. first there was that torch running unpleasantness (or circus, if you saw the route it took through San Francisco), then there was that whole earthquake in China thing. Thanks, Buddha. How are we supposed to celebrate the spirit of international amateur competition with everything so crappy in the world right now. Sigh.
But hey! Video games will get people in the spirit! They always do! OK, no more exclamation points. Playing six new events on display today at SEGA's San Francisco office, in both single and multiplayer matches with seven other local game journos, might have gotten TeamXbox a little more pumped for the Summer Games.
