Wow, I can't wait: Pac-Man movie is a go

The moron strikes again: Uwe Boll says games have no story

New PS3 commercial features clowns, dog, man with lipstick

I just feel sad about PS3 commercials. I don't want to ridicule them, discuss them with other journalists, contemplate why they aren't great anymore or pen angry letters. I just want them to be good again. I just want to know...
