    Popcap’s ‘Bejeweled 3′ coming to consoles and handhelds

    The latest iteration of the popular, fairly sparkly puzzle game Bejeweled, Bejeweled 3, is coming to your non-Wii console, as well as the Nintendo DS. It appears that five versions will be available — one each for Nintendo DS, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade.

    Superheroes! Prepare for more freedom than you ever thought imaginable. NCsoft and Paragon Studios announced yesterday that their comic-inspired MMO is going free-to-play later this year as City of Heroes Freedom. “Freedom is about getting more content into the hands of our players, whether they are subscribing or playing for free,” said Brian Clayton, Executive Producer at Paragon Studios. “To do this, we’ve looked at City of Heroes from the ground up and focused on three ways to enhance the experience by giving our players more choices, greater rewards and the best content we’ve ever produced. And for the first time ever, players can choose to enjoy more than seven years of content for free.” You will, as these things usually go, be able to choose whether or not you’re willing to pay for content. Subscribers will be able to experience all of the game’s benefits as well as some
