Cloud gaming not the future, says Nintendo

By: Eddie Makuch Nintendo president Satoru Iwata was asked by investors recently if he thinks traditional dedicated gaming platforms like the Wii U and 3DS will be replaced by other initiatives, like cloud gaming. He squarely said no, downplaying the role of cloud gaming in the industry’s future and saying dedicated gaming consoles will not die out anytime soon. Iwata said there is always some latency involving cloud gaming. And while this may have little or no effect on some games, on other, more-interactive games, []

The criminal, who had made it near the top of the FBI Ten Most Wanted List by murdering his entire family, was actually named Christian Longo. Though his story was coveted, he’d only give it to []

By:  Eric Eisenberg When it was announced that Disney had purchased LucasFilm for $4.05 billion and announced that they would be making Episodes VII, VIII, and IX we all just knew that wasn’t going to be the whole story. Nobody on this planet would lay down that much money for the rights to make three movies, no matter how potentially profitable those movies could be. We’ve heard rumor after rumor that the companies would be working to make “spin-off” films set in the same galaxy about characters []

Tuesday Night TV (5 Feb 2013)

I love this show.  The tension of it was very built up.  The fact that everyone loves Shelby and that Lemons plan totally backfired which I was glad for.  That brings me to Lemon (Jaime King) she is not a good person, at all.  She tries to be, but only on face value, making her unbearable to watch.  Also, she needs to eat something, and this is coming from a girl who weighs 102lbs.  Too much info, I know.  It just bothers []
