Sixth point: the game you just bought at full price which did not live up to any of the hype could've been much cheaper to experience via rental.

David Bowie officially joins Rock Band lineup... in LEGO form.David Bowie officially joins Rock Band lineup... in LEGO form.

Bowie will also be joined by a LEGO version of Iggy Pop. I'm still not understanding the whole Rock Band / LEGO connection. Perhaps the union is meant to function as a metaphor to emphasize the building blocks of music. Or maybe it's just cross-marketing gone berserk.

Have a peek at Tim Schafer's application to LucasArts circa 1989.Have a peek at Tim Schafer's application to LucasArts circa 1989.

Since I figured I had blown the interview, I had nothing to lose. So I did my cover letter in the form of a semi-graphic adventure. I drew the pictures on my Koala pad, and printed the whole thing out on my Atari 800 dot-matrix printer.

The most evil-looking doorstop you've ever encountered is back. Some of the reviews I've read go as far to say that Murray even steals the game. Just who is Murray you ask? Beware the clicking madibles of doom!

Square Enix would really like to sell a lot of Final Fantasy XIII games.Square Enix would really like to sell a lot of Final Fantasy XIII games.

To be a little more precise, they would really like to sell over six million copies of Final Fantasy XIII worldwide. Of those six million copies, one of which will probably end up in my living room.... when it comes to Xbox 360... in 2010.

Be warned, there are some minor spoilers in the video. So if you don't want to know about a certain demonic talking skull's reappearance in the series then click somewhere else. Oops - ruined it, didn't I?

Want to know why new video games cost sixty bucks these days?Want to know why new video games cost sixty bucks these days?

I remember when that magic price point way back when (classic NES days) was just a mere forty dollars. Sixty is the new forty for this generation, unless your semi-intelligent and buy used (or rent).
