The Daily Hotness: Color A Dinosaur

Dale attended a panel held by Tommy Tallarico during MAGFest this past weekend and Tommy brought up Color A Dinosaur, one of the worst games he had to ever work on. The story about the experience is pretty funny and it makes me really glad that Tommy and others have worked so hard on videogame music.

Dale gave us MAGFest gossip, Wii Sports is the best-selling game ever, an NFL player wants to change his name to Warcraft, Eduardo and the Samurai Toaster for WiiWare looks adorable, and plenty more happened on 01/05/09.
