With PAX now less than a week away, it's time to start planning your Prime experience. Sure there are panels, parties, and various city attractions to entertain and distract you, but have you considered setting a world record? In celebration of Kirby's 20th anniversary and the September 16 release of Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition, Nintendo will be doing just that!

On September 1, PAX Prime attendees will be gathering in the Expo Hall Queue Area, Level 4 Room 4A, at 1 P.M. to break the standing Guinness World Record for the number of people simultaneously blowing a chewing gum bubble. Currently at only 304, PAX Prime, with its 70,000 expected attendees, should be a good place to honor Kirby with this monumental effort in BubbleYum. I'm pretty sure you could find at least 300 people standing in a bathroom line alone.

How fitting that they chose to chew huge wads of gum in the city of Seattle, of all places. Afterwards we can all saunter down to the Post Alley Gum Wall and leave our indelible (record setting) mark forever.

The first trailer for the Need for Speed movie is here

Oh you didn't forget, did you? There's going to be a Need for Speed movie, and it's going to star Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul. The first trailer for the movie has plenty of cliché going for it, you know, the same kind of stuff you've seen from movies about racing cars before. Need for Speed (the movie) revs up its first trailer [Flixist]more
