    Domo Qees at Target

    More awesome Domo news for my fellow Domo-holics! Dark Horse and Toy2R will be releasing new blister packaging for the Domo Qees that were most recently launched. There are four new colours for collectors to find in the new blind box packages: solid yellow & orange, and translucent blue and black. “We have tried to introduce the ‘mystery box’ genre to a more casual consumer, with an equally weighted ratio of four different colors packed in a blind box and paired with a visible brown Domo Qee,” said Dark Horse’s vice president of product development, David Scroggy. “The customer has an equal shot at one of four possible surprise colors. The blister-carded package for the single Domo Qee choices are something new for both Toy2R and Dark Horse. None of these colors is a part of our regular mystery-box assortment, so we hope this will be of interest to collectors

    Mass Effect DLC now live

    Mass Effect DLC Pinnacle Station is now available on Xbox live. It snuck up on line yesterday on Swedish XBLM, but seems to be confirmed as an actual release now. For 400 Microsoft points you can visit a “remote, top-secret Alliance space station” and basically extend your game. I tried looking for a trailer for the DLC but could not find anything. It’s a pretty low price point to add to your adventures. This is pretty cool though, there are Mass Effect inspired Avatar goodies on Xbox Live Marketplace. Now your Avatar join the Normandy crew.

    Muse Frontman brings his sexiness to Guitar Hero 5

    The very talented Matt Bellamy will be bringing his trademark singing and guitar playing to the virtual stage in Guitar Hero 5. He’s the latest in-game playable rocker and joins Johnny Cash, Carlos Santana and Shirley Manson. I have a total crush on Matt Bellamy. He’s the front man for Muse and if you’ve never seen them live…you’re missing out. Matt puts on a show like I’ve never seen. Muse fans can also look forward to a pre-order for the release of the band’s upcoming album, The Resistance which is set to release on September 15. The one song mentioned is “Plug in Baby” but I’m not sure if there are others. Here is a video featuring digital Matt Bellamy: Follow

    Pirate Bay shut down…for minutes

    The Internet groaned for a few minutes as a Swedish Court successfully ordered The Pirate Bay to be shut down. Only it appeared again on the internet fully operational today. The Court ordered The Pirate Bay to be disconnected from the original site’s ISP and the site did disappear, but it now appears to be up again possibly up on a new ISP. A note on the homepage of the now resurgent piracy site, printed on a digital t-shirt, reads: ‘I spent months of time and millions of dollars to close down The Pirate Bay and all I’ll get is this beautiful t-shirt!’ The site is also selling TPB-endorsed clothing to users calling it “supporter wear”. A few months ago we wrote about a game company in Sweden that was looking to buy TPB. But that deal seems to be dead as it is currently investigating if it has the
