This commercialtrailer for the device makes me think about all the awesome things I could move around by myself – furniture, cars, anything big. I’d start my own moving company!

    Who wants some stickers? They’re your pre-order bonus for “Kingdom Hearts Re:coded”

    This afternoon, Square Enix sent us a press release about their pre-order offer for Kingdom Hearts Re:coded. Pre-order it at GameStop or Amazon, and you get what they’re calling “Icon Decals.” Yeah, they’re 2mm thick, but you don’t have to gussy them up and call them “decals.” These are stickers, people. They might be thick stickers, but they’re stickers. You stick them places (Square Enix helpfully suggested sticking them places that you would like to decorate), and they (theoretically) stay. Because they’re sticky. Stickers! So, if you really want some stickers, pre-order Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, out 1/11/11.

    COD Black Ops : Reports of Glitches and Bugs Squished

    Yesterday Activision blogger Dan Amrich asked players to alert the publisher to any bugs, software problems or online exploits they spotted in Call of Duty: Black Ops. Saying, “Every game has bugs; it’s a reality of gaming. And the bigger the game, the more likely you will find bugs that would never even come to light in less popular titles.” Since then the developer Treyarch, has come out with some strong words for people who were trying to glean internet fame by fabricating glitch reports. They had this to say on the subject of glitchers: “This is going to be my one and only statement on this topic, so pay attention,” wrote multiplayer design director David ‘Vahn’ Vonderhaar on the game’s forums. “I got Twitbombed today from dozens of people the same 2 links.
