Thrill car racing is just a video game away.

This week, I had the pleasure of getting into the driver’s seat with an expert on car racing video games, a 9-year-old third-grader who has been a car enthusiast since he could talk.

Gears of War 3 is a gamer’s game. This award-winning third-party shooter plays like an action movie with superb graphics and realistic special effects drawing both the old and the too young!
