Just thought I'd do a quick post up and say that if you haven't checked out AsianWeek's AsianGeek yet -- it's not too bad. Here's the link and here's some more info on it:

With thumbs of steel and reflexes like lightning, veteran gamers and frequent AsianWeek contributors Josh Laddin and Andrew Lee bring readers the latest reviews, previews, features, and interviews from the Asian American gaming scene, in’s new gaming blog, AsianGeek.

AsianWeek, the largest Asian Pacific American outlet, launched AsianGeek, on Nov. 13. The blog features a conversation with Mirror's Edge producer, Tom Farrer, and hands-on impressions and reviews of the anticipated titles like Prince of Persia and Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party for the Wii console and is available online at

Laddin, who’s of half Chinese and half Jewish descent, began his gaming career with the Nintendo Entertainment System before he even started going to school, and has never looked back since. He has a Bachelor’s Degree in English with an emphasis in Creative Writing from the University of California, Davis. He is also a contributor on the popular website Lee is a Korean-American alum of the University of California, Berkeley and a member of the Nintendo generation.

“Within the gaming community Asians have always been looked upon as the quiet geeks,” Laddin said. “With AsianGeek we are redefining the stereotype and showing that we’re not so quiet and have a lot to contribute.”

AsianGeek covers games for every console, handheld, and PC. The writers may be contacted for game coverage and interviews by email at and
