Pcgamer.com has the promo video for Star Trek online.  Its store is 20% off including the lifetime subscriptions, and many fun in game events are going to be happening such as the Devs logging into the game.  Check it out here.

I found a fun video on Kevin Warwick and his cyborg experiments with plugging his brain into a computer.  Check it out here.  His wiki post can be checked out here.

VG Cats finally came out with a new strip, and its a good TF one.  Check it out here.

A vid called ‘Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden’ the trailer by Gameloft for their new game is up on youtube.  The game’s story sounds pretty cut and paste but it is very pretty, its worth a look if your one of the apple i people.  Check it out here.

\Thealistdaily.com reports super Street Fighter IV will get a facebook game with ‘user uploaded content’ in the form of fan art and videos.    Considering what Deviant Art holds I don’t know if Id be so confident as to let ‘user content’ go up.  Especially since some kids love ‘freaking the normals’.  Check it out here.  But the story isn’t entirely grim they sound focused on the future and carving a niche for themselves with their tablet.  Check it out here.

Industrygamers.com has two sobering stories about THQ.  The first ( Check it out here ) covers how their poof finances have made them rethink free to play launches in Asian markets.  They cancelled two game titles Company of Heroes Online and WWE Online.  I have to wonder what’s going on with them,  ENN over on the escapist mocked their odd rebranding of their logo.  I mean did they waste money on that while having other problems?  Check it out here.  At roughly 3:59 timestamp.

And to end of a very high note escapistmagazine.com has a beautiful story “Canada Reverses Course on Usage-Based Internet Billing” The title says it all and makes my heart sing, though that’s tempered by the fact that the majority of the country already had such restrictions before the status quo was upset.  You can check it out here.
