  1. The Battlestar Galactica Web Series, Blood and Chrome Premieres Friday

    It's been a very long time coming, but if you're a Battlestar Galactica fan, you've known about the web series, Blood and Chrome, for quite some time. The series follows William Adama during the first First Cylon War, something we only saw for a clip or two in flashbacks on SyFy's Battlestar Galactica. After many delays and reworks, the series will finally debut on Machinima Prime this Friday.

  3. No One Knows When The Last Guardian Will Ever Release

    We all shed a tear when game design genius Fumito Ueda left Team ICO, and it was even worse that it happened in the middle of the development of their next game, The Last Guardian. We've been waiting on the game's release for around three years now, and it seems we're not much closer to knowing when that is. In an interview with French website Jeux Video, boss of Sony Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida said that no one could promise any release date for the game.

  5. Microsoft Surface Has Much Less Free Space Than Advertised

    Anyone who has gotten an SSD with the requisite smaller storage space currently inherent to the medium and installed Windows 7 on it knows damn well that Microsoft operating systems take up too much space. When Microsoft released their new tablet, the Surface, people were thrilled that the base model started with 32 GB of free space. Unfortunately, due to the pre-installed software on the device, the 32 GB storage size is more like 16 GB.

  9. Want to Rule the World? Man Attempts to Auction Off Earth

  10. Now That Disney Owns Star Wars, This is What They Did With Darth Vader

    For those of you worried about Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm, they didn't ruin comics when they bought Marvel, right? They certainly didn't ruin sports by owning ESPN either, so if you're worried that they'll turn Star Wars into some kind of Kingdom Hearts-style mashup where Mickey can't stop feeling disturbances in the Force, I'd recommend a wait-and-see approach first. On the other hand, all of those animatronic kids in It's a Small World getting Force-choked until they can't sing anymore would be just fine. However you feel about the purchase, this is how Disney celebrated, playing on the old stereotype of where athletes say they're going to go after they win some kind of bowl or finals or world-spanning series. At any rate, don't forget: Many people would say Disney is a more terrifying cult than the Sith anyway.
