[games_access] New game features closed captioning

yeah, for the game accessibility gazette/newsletter -- the one that 
will serve as our venue for press releases so that groups can search 
for the items that pertain to them/interest them the most. basically 
we'll summarize the blog plus anything going on on the 
gameaccessibility.com site. hopefully as it grows we can get updates 
from other groups to include, like the IGDA does every month.

so i guess i'm thinking that we should start collecting email 
addresses for groups to let them know what's happening in the GA 
world, along with instructions on joining this mailing list and the 
forums for more info. then we'll send the newsletter out to them all 
once a month.

make more sense? ideally, i'd send it out to everyone on the internet 
but i'm sure that there's some spamming laws i'd be violating. ;)
