I'm having one of those nights where I'm finding it hard to get anything done. The work is piling up around me and I can't even work up the motivation to procrastinate. You know what helps me get through those times?
Damn. I was hoping you'd have the answer because I don't have a freaking clue.
Anyway, some stuff happened over the weekend that we didn't talk about. I know, I know. We promised that we'd never keep secrets from each other, but we just didn't think these things would be important to you. Maybe we were wrong. Let's find out, shall we?
Plot details for Stuart Beattie's Halo screenplay have come to light. Sounds a fair bit like Ender's Game for kids without intellectual aspirations to me. [Kotaku]
Maligned Star Wars Galaxies developer, Jeff Freeman, committed suicide late last week. I'm not going to make a Star Wars joke. Condolences to his family don't jive well with force-related humor. [GamePolitics]
GTA-styled MMO, APB, has moved into the "closed internal beta" phase of development. [Edge]
Now that they've failed to acquire Take-Two, is Epic the next target of EA? I would expect yearly Unreal Tournament releases if that's the case. [GameGuru]
