    Newly discovered planet may have water

    The tl;dr version: Astronomers have found a planet which might have liquid water, although it's probably not very Earth-like. Link: http://arstechnica.com/science/news/2009/12/watery-super-earth-spotted-40-light-years-from-us.ars

    New Halo Anime Series in 2010

    Preview from Xbox Live: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhhmpbVDmZo&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Egodisageek%2Ecom%2F2009%2F07%2Fhalo%2Dlegends%2Dpreview%2Dtrailer%2F&feature=player_embedded Looks like it's a shounen series, and I don't particularly like the Halo series, so I doubt I'll be watching...

    The Thread of General Ignorance

    Inspired by the brilliant British panel show QI, I've decided to do a thread about common misconceptions. Feel free to add your own. -Humans did not evolve from chimpanzees. According to theory of evolution, both humans and chimpanzees had a common ancestor. -Asteroid belts are not vast, dense...

    Japanese Virtual Console list- April

    A list of the Virtual Console games coming to Japan this April: Link: http://www.vc-reviews.com/news/2008/03/japanese_virtual_console_list_april_2008 I'd say that's a pretty respectable month. Not sure what the point in Metal Slug is seeing as there's already an anthology of the series out...

    EU VC update 21/03/08

    Only three weeks after Super Turrican we get: Mega Turrican Sadly only one game this week. Note: apparently you'll need to update your console in order to access the Shop Console. I'm scared to try in case Nintendo's sneakily put in a way to stop the Freeloader.

    EU VC update 07/03/08

    http://www.vc-reviews.com/games/n64/kirby_64_the_crystal_shards]Kirby 64 Another one-game-wonder week (sigh), but look on the bright side, at least it's not something like Shaq Fu or Night Trap. And no, there is no Super Smash Bros. this week, get over it.

    10 ways the video game industry is ripping you off

    Nice article I found on gamesradar about the various ways games companies like to rip off their poor fans: http://www.gamesradar.com/ps3/f/ten-ways-the-games-industry-is-shafting-you/a-20080219115144305067 They provide a good explanation for the bizarre shortages of Wii and DS consoles even...

    Japanese VC list-March

    Of course, the Japanese VC schedule provides a vague glimpse at the possible releases for the rest of the world. So this month they get: Ouch. No N64, No Mega Drive, No Neo Geo (again!), and only one measly SNES game. When the okay-but-not-fantastic Fantasy Zone is highlight of the month...

    EU VC update 15/02/08

    A slight improvement this week, as we get two pretty good Sega games: Eternal Champions Phantasy Star II As always I recommend buying the Sega Mega Drive Collection for PS2 rather than getting Phantasy Star II on VC, but I shall say it's an awesome game with a much better storyline than the...

    EU VC update 1/2/08

    Nintendo reminds us just how much they despise us, by doing the fourth one-game-wonder week in two months. We got SSFII last week, now Lolo 2 this week. America got both those games in one update. :mad5: Adventures of Lolo 2 Surely we're due for more Sega games by now?
