    @California videogame law ruled unconstitutional
    Well, the lawyers need to make a living …

    @LulzSec ends its hacking spree:
    Yep, I also think that the authorities (with the help of other hackers) got too close to them.

    Now, if LulzSec are script kiddies, then that says a lot about the the level of responsibility of the owners of the attacked sites.

    @We didn’t have enough time for Fable 3
    Loved Paul’s comment.

    @Duke Nukem will continue
    Interesting point, Jonah. It might bring better games out there rather than a second DNF.

    @ Xbox 360 halfway through lifecycle:
    Isn’t XBox a DX9 piece a hardware? If so, just an update: Microsoft already released DX11. Heck, even I upgraded my 6-7 years old DX9 video card to a newer one.

    @What kind of food and drink to you eat while gaming?
    I’m not from US, so this is not for the contest.
    I try not to eat while at the computer, but, when I do that I usually go for dark chocolate.
    Alternatively, crackers.

    I also try not to snack too much because my metabolism has recently started to catch up with me, but I’ve recently found myself indulging in this particular snack and drink combination while gaming: A micro-brew (preferably a porter) and pretzel m&m’s.

    Lulzsec – They didn’t personally affect me but I’m glad its done, there is no reason for doing what they did. Pretty much all the info was useless to most. Probably just did it for publicity.

    Duke Nukem – I’m glad that they will continue the series, they shouldn’t just leave the game on such a bad note. I haven’t played it yet, but from the enormous amounts of hate that the game got it almost makes me want to buy it. Almost.

    Xbox Life – I can see the Xbox360 lasting that long, which is actually surprising. I don’t really know what Microsoft would add if they were to make a new console, I guess just upgrade the machine as a whole, but I’m not too big about graphics so I don’t really care. Going to be interesting to see if it does actually last that long even with the new Wii console. But that will probably only last for a year and then become another piece of hardware that collects dust.

    QOTW – I usually just go with anything I can get. Soda is always a nice choice, but I don’t really like to eat while playing. I hate it when my gaming equipment (if you could call it that), gets dirty or sticky.

    You know you can play most PC games with a 360 pad or any regular gamepad? just like consoles if you hook it up to your TV via HDMI/VGA (only with way better graphics/performance)
