Law and Order PC Game: Justice is Served

If you?ve ever spent a Sunday, Wednesday or Thursday night (and any other night if you get cable TV!) glued to the television watching Law and Order, then this is the game for you. It?s just like watching the television series except you?re one of the detectives and solving the case is up to you! Visit the scene of the crime, interview the witnesses and visit the precinct to file reports.

Anna Nalick ? Breathe (2AM)
It?s very rare that you hear a song for the first time then end up singing it to yourself for the rest of the day. It?s even rarer that you enjoy it going through your head! Anna Nalick?s new song Breathe (2AM) is one of those singles. Anna is a Californian artist, who had a lucky break in college. A friend who taught at a local high school had a student with parents in the music business. Through these contacts, Anna ended up working with the production team behind Tori Amos and has now been signed with Columbia Records. Her sound is haunting and almost electric to listen to and although her influences include Fiona Apple and Tori Amos, her style is entirely unique. Her first album, Wreck of the Day, is released on January 18, but listen to her single at www.annanalick.com
