    ESRB phone app makes it easier for parents to learn about games’ ESRB ratings on the go

    It’s now a lot easier to get ESRB ratings summaries on the go, thanks to an app for iPhones and phones running Android that the organization recently released. The new ESRB app allows parents to simply snap a photo of the game box to get the full ratings summary for that title. If you’re not that much of a shutterbug and are more into typing the game title out, that works as well. Hopefully, this will make some parents’ holiday shopping a little easier – and more age-appropriate. To get the application, search either the iPhone App Store or the Android Market for “ESRB.” And if you don’t have an Apple or Android phone, you can access the new mobile ESRB site at http://m.esrb.org. You can’t take pictures with that, but it at least makes the research easier. Watch the app trailer below to get an idea about how it

    It’s a new “X-Men: Destiny” trailer, just for you

    The X-Men are back (well, sort of) next fall in X-Men: Destiny. This isn’t your Wolverines, Rogues and Storms (oh my!), though. This time, you’re making the mutants – and you’re making the choices to determine their destinies. (Hence, the title.) It at least sounds cool, right? For more about the game, visit http://www.herohq.com/xmendestiny and have fun making a molecule and DNA. Or whatever that cluster of cells is. This trailer premiered, like many others, at the VGAs on Saturday. Enjoy! Follow

    The Humble Indie Bundle features five games – Braid, Cortex Command, Machinarium, Osmos and Revenge of the Titans – that would normally cost $85 – If you bought them all separately, anyway.

Why spend more than they’re worth? On the website, you get to make a choice that explains this behavior. So, do you want all of your money to go directly to the developers?

    VIZ Media has just released Yuuki Iinuma’s manga (graphic novel) series Itsuwaribito, under their Shonen Sunday Imprint. “A Delinquent Orphan Raised By A Monk Decides To Tell Only “Good” Lies To Help People” Utsuho’s truthfulness as a child resulted in an enormous catastrophe, and he decided to lie from that day forward. Raised in a village of orphans by a monk, Utsuho is an unrepentant troublemaker. The monk eventually inspires him to help people, but there’s no way Utsuho’s going to lead an honest life! Instead, he’s going to use his talents for mischief and deception for good! “Creator Yuuki Iinuma uses the dichotomy of integrity and lying as the basis for an interesting new story that ponders if honesty is indeed the best policy,” says Carrie Shepherd, Managing Editor. “An itsuwaribito is an expert at sneaking, trickery, and theft. In the series, Utsuho vows to tell lies, but only
