I figure most people have probably seen this by now, but just in case you haven't, here's some exciting news for video game fanatics everywhere (From ars technica):
What's this mean? For one, that law in California banning the sale of video games to minors has been struck down as unconstitutional. More importantly, this will (should) preempt any further attempts by legislators to regulate the sale of video games. Not messing with a working system (ESRB)? Sounds good to me!Read more >
While browsing youtube for the new Arrival Trailer that was recently released, I made a curious discovery. Apparently, we have a Youtube channel. I'm not necessarily against someone randomly deciding that they will be the face of the wiki on youtube sometime in January 2011, I'm just curious why they haven't made themselves known here.

Wikia has begun switching over the default look of many wikis to the new skin. MEWiki hasn't yet been switched for logged out users, but it will happen

The one that is perhaps the most relevant to us is the Red Dead Wiki, being a wiki about a video game. To see the new style, just change your skin preference on that wiki, by following the instructions as listed in the blog post:
Why am I posting this? Because I think it's important to highlight the (huge) differences between Monaco and this new skin:

There's a new Lair of the Shadow Broker preview up on the official site.
There's a bunch of really interesting stuff in the video. I think the most interesting part of the video is that it appears that there's a gameplay mode where you drive one of the flying cars that we see so often. Very interesting...
Also, a really deep-voiced guy is talking to Liara. Shadow Broker? Hmmm...Read more >
