    Battle together as Rapunzel and Flynn in Disney’s “Tangled”

    Disney’s Tangled: The Video Game is launching this November for Nintendo DS and Wii, and we’ve got the trailer posted below. The game is story-based, but features several mini-games and quests. You will, of course, meet characters from the movie, and you have the option to play as either Rapunzel (and kick some tail with your awesome hair) or Flynn (where you battle a little more traditionally). However, sometimes you’ll need to work as a team. Both characters are voiced by their actors, Mandy Moore and Zach Levi. Both have game experience already, with Moore as Aerith in the Square Enix/Disney collaboration Kingdom Hearts, and Levi in this month’s Fallout: New Vegas. A bunch of kids will likely be adding this one to their holiday wish lists, so get acquainted now by watching the trailer.

    Blizzard addresses cheating in “StarCraft II”

    Oh dear, it looks like we’ve got a bunch of cheaters on our hands. Of course, cheating in games is nothing new, but some companies are taking it a lot more seriously than others. Blizzard appears to fall, very firmly, into the Very Serious Camp. They issued a special reminder today to note that any player found to be cheating, or even utilizing hacks or mods, will be permanently banned from the game. To put it in slightly different terms, you’ll no longer be able to log in to Battle.net – not to play StarCraft, probably not to play anything else, either. You might have to start completely over. Brand-new account, brand-new game install, all of that. And don’t mess with the client this time. Suspensions and the throwing of the banhammer will start very, very soon. In the meantime…stop cheating, you cheater. But, just in case you want it

    PAX Panel: HALO Reach

    Early, Saturday morning, I had one goal and one goal only… to attend the Bungie panel and meet up. I was lured to go and stand in line by the promise of sweet, sweet swag. My friends, like sirens, tried to pull me away and convince me to do other things at PAX. I started with a strong group of Spartans and one by one, they fell into the clutches of the many other things you can do at Pax. It was all up to me now. So I braved my way to the Pegasus Theater at the Sheraton. Thousands were gathered and the Pax enforcers were the only ones that knew where the lines ended or even began. It was madness! I finally reached the end of the line, and as I sat my book bag down, I took a peek behind me to find that the line was now out of the room, with the
