Rumor Mill

  • (Bio Break/Moon Over Endor) Rumor: Oblivion MMO in the works
  • (gamespy) Rumor: New Zelda is Majora’s Mask Sequel
  • (gamespy) Rumor: EA Working on Apple’s Tablet Device
  • Sony registered a domain for the PlayStation Arc (probably the name for their motion control thingymabbober), the PS3 is purportedly finally hacked (by the same guy who hacked the iPhone 3GS)
  • OnLive has finally gone into beta; verdict: laggy
  • with the announcement of the dragon age origins expansion, bioware has stated you will have 5 all new party members and one returning from the original game. After destroying something beautiful at my local fight club I heard from a reliable source that the only returning party member will be Oghren! So in march be looking forward to having the drunk red head berserker making a return.

Reviews / Discussion

Twitter Question of the Week: Do you Preorder games? And, If you do, Do you get them from a Brick and Mortar or Online?

  • Starmike: Always, and the collector’s edition if it has something valuable. Always from Gamestop b/c too many times shipping is delayed vi UPS
  • Gnomaggedon: I preordered once… TBC.. 18 hours before release. I wasn’t even 60 on Gnomeaggedon then
  • Zideshow: It depends. For console, I usually pre-order via Gamestop or Best Buy. For PC, a lot of times I pre-order and d/l digitally.
  • Lougagliardi: I preorder, especially the wow xpacs or Castlevania. Brick and Mortar
  • GettingWorse: I never preorder games. I’ve yet to come across a game where they sold out on launch. Plus I’m not a special edition collector
  • Nibuca: Preorder, noun alias for “here, hold my money, I don’t need it. No really, get interest on it.. you deserve it.”
  • NinthBatter: i don’t pre-order most of the time, but now that i’m back in LA i’ll probably pre order more, brick and mortar
