    Hey, it’s not every day we see a music video about Cthulhu

    Xbox LIVE Indie Games has been saved. By Cthulhu. Okay, actually, it’s just that the title Cthulhu Saves the World is now available. To commemorate the occasion, developer Zeboyd Games has released a cute little music video for the song “Hey There Cthulhu,” which parodies Plain White Ts’ “Hey There Delilah.” Naturally. It is kind of adorable. I don’t think I’ve ever been so amused by a sea creature. (That is what Cthulhu is, right?)

    Death in the future for Fantastic Four?

    In comics the Fantastic Four have been a fan favorite for almost 50 years. The team has been made up of four characters that have strong personalities. But now we are looking at how the Fantastic Four will deal with a death of one of their own. In the series, Three, one of the team died causing a ripple effect on other Marvel titles. Marvel executive editor Tom Brevoort stated in an interview with CNN, “What we’re actually doing is completely transmogrifying the ‘FF’ as a thing. At the end of this story, there won’t even be a book called ‘Fantastic Four’ anymore; there will be something new that will be interesting and exciting. Out of this moment, a new thing will be born.” The first issue for a new Fantastic Four series called FF will be subtitled “A Beginning” and will be in stores in March. Oddly enough it’s

    Kindle 3 beats performance standards

    According to recently released sales figures from this year’s Cyber Monday event, visitors bought an average of 158 items every second on Amazon.com. Which is unbelievable traffic. But Amazon has built up quite the reputation for being a great retailer. I heard many positive reactions on Twitter and Facebook about the deals they found on Amazon for games, but also how quickly Amazon delivered on those games. This holiday the Kindle 3 sold very strongly. It’s the third-generation of the e-reader and earned the title for the bestselling product of all time. Knocking out “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”. “Kindle’s $139 price point is a key factor — it’s low enough that people don’t have to choose,” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com founder and CEO in a press release. I know I received a Kindle for the holidays and immediately went to Amazon.com and started ordering books. I have fell
