Virtual Programming's blog has been updated with August's Gamer of the Month. The GotM contest features an interview with the gamer whose email best explained why he or she should receive a VP game from Deliver2Mac.com.

All of us follow our own routes to Mac gaming, but for those of us raised in the 70s and 80s, one of the first steps often involved the earliest videogame consoles. Corey Tamas – former editor-in-chief at MacGamer and current news editor at Macgasm and co-host at iGame Radio – was no different.
