Yahoo Launches Buzz for News


Posted February 26, 2008 - By bleahy

Yahoo has just launched a new news service named Buzz, which lets users vote on stories that are interesting or popular. Sounds a lot like Digg to us, but they only accept stories from 100 news sources at the moment.

Users cannot submit stories from random blogs and what not.

Also, the top search right now is "Nazi Gold" so you know it's good. More people are searching the term "Nazi Gold" over "Barack Obama"? Smells like an internet raid.

Check it out and obviously you'll need a Yahoo account to vote.

Ubisoft Shows Acquisition Interest


Posted February 26, 2008 - By bleahy

EA isn't the only one getting ready to buy property. Ubisoft has expressed interest in growing their business through acquisitions as well.

Ubi president Yves Guillemot said, "The desire of EA to buy Take-2 pushes us to go faster, to accelerate internal growth but also to look at acquisition opportunities". He clarified that they aren't trying to buy studios, but instead acquire properties.

Maybe they should just acquire more personalities like Jade Raymond to work on their games. That seemed to work for Assassin's Creed.

Each and every week, the Wii Shop channel offers some downloadable content for you Nintendo fans who are looking to enhance your already enhanced gaming experience. This week, there are two new games that hearken back to a bygone era. First is Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards and second is Psychosis.

The Crystal Shards was Kirby's debut on the Nintendo 64 and his first 3-D adventure, and focused on his desire to reassemble the 100 shards of a crystal that would save the universe from a villain known as Dark Matter. Psychosis, on the other hand, allows you to enter the mindset of a twisted demon who wants to cause evil worldwide.

Sounds like fun, eh? Go. Check them out!

It's been coming for a long while now, and the other shoe has finally dropped. Microsoft says they will no longer make HD-DVD part of their plans and they won't continue to produce the HD-DVD player as an add-on for the XBox 360, effectively driving the last nail into the DVD format wars once and for all.

There's even speculation that Microsoft will begin production of a Blu-Ray player, though that is strictly rumor at this point. They might also just concentrate on the digital download service for a long while and let the fallout do what it will. Still, who could have seen this coming even a few short months ago?

Microsoft has dropped the price of the HD-DVD add-on to $50, while supplies last.

In a show of solidarity against the tyrannical business maneuvering exacting by eBay executives recently, the proletariat listing masses have brought the venerable auction site to its shuddering knobby knees. Actually, it's not that big of a deal, but some users are angered over fee increases and the elimination of feedback for sellers.

Anyone who has used eBay knows that trust is huge when you're buying that Elvis toenail trimmer from that guy is Saskatoon. You gotta know it's going to make it to you once you've paypaled your savings over to him.

The week-long strike, which mysteriously ended today after no action from eBay was taken, dropped the site to 13 million listings, all of which will probably be made up in the next week. It's like those mass emails that try to hurt the oil companies by having people  not buy gas on one day, as if they're not going to need gas the next. Silly voodoo economics.

Take-Two Rejects EA's Offer


Posted February 25, 2008 - By bleahy

Take-Two has rejected EA's offer of a stock buyout for $26 a share (which is now what Take-Two is trading at after the markets opened today, up from $17).

Strauss Zelnick, Executive Chairman of the Board of Take-Two said, Electronic Arts proposal provides insufficient value to our shareholders and comes at absolutely the wrong time given the crucial initiatives underway at the Company."

Noting that this move by EA is probably an attempt to secure Take-Two for cheap before Grand Theft Auto IV launches, they added:

'Portal 2' Confirmed on X-Play!


Posted February 21, 2008 - By Yodapollo

On tonight's episode of X-Play, lead designer for Portal, Kimberly Swift, confirmed that there will be a Portal 2. This is pretty much a given as Doug Lombardi, Valve's Director of Marketing, had previously stated that "more Portal is definitely on the way." However, until now we weren't sure if this would be in the form of a direct sequel or possibly downloadable content. Well, now we know. Check out the video for the confirmation.

Bad Satellite Go Boom


Posted February 21, 2008 - By jrmylmb

The errant spy satellite that was potentially going to dump 1,000 pounds of toxic hydrazine fuel upon an impact with Earth was successfully shot down last night by an Aegis NAVY cruiser northwest of Hawaii. The impact occurred at approximately 10:30pm Pacific at 153 nautical miles above Earth as the wayward decomposing orbit had the satellite traveling 17,000 mph and may not have burned up completely once it entered the thicker parts of our atmosphere.

Speculation that this was a test mission for the missile defense system that the US is developing were rebuffed by the Pentagon as well as rumors that it was being shot down because it had information on it that was sensitive to our national security.

No matter what the reason, it's pretty badass that we got it considering all the cash that went into it.
