Daily Hotness: Can't stop these pirates

12:00 AM on 09.05.2009 // 8BitBrian

Turning off twitter is the only thing I can do to avoid hearing everyone talk about the great time they've been having at PAX. Well, watching through the entirety of the first season of Black Lagoon in one sitting helped too. See? I managed to work in the weeaboo stuff easily!

One of our top stories today was clearly Ready to Friday BioWare talking about how they deal with piracy. I'd have to agree, incentives like limited editions are probably one of the best ways to get people to buy their stuff. Atlus has been pushing that route hard with Demon's Soul, and I think it'll work well for them. Won't stop the Lagoon Trading Company, but it's not like much can.

The big story, though, is that the Japanese Prime Minister's wife is batshit insane. She eats the sun for nourishment. And she was abducted by aliens. You need to read it to believe it.
