Steam Release Time For BioShock

According to the steam website people who pre-loaded the game from steam can not start to play the game till 4pm est time. Even though they had "play as soon as the game is available" you can't play till well after others will have started playing... even longer than those who got a copy from Toy's R Us.

t's up to the publisher to decide when a game becomes available via Steam. So in other words...don't shoot the messenger.
-According to Gabe Newell of Valve Software

Epic Games Buys People Can Fly

Epic Games today announced that it has acquired a majority interest in Warsaw, Poland-based game developer People Can Fly. People Can Fly (“PCF”) is best known for creating the hit PC game, Painkiller, but most recently has been collaborating with Epic on the PC version of Gears of War®. In addition the two companies are collaborating on a new intellectual property which Epic will be previewing privately to publishers at Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany this week.

Can't wait to see what this new game could be... Could it possibly involve guns?

Dino Dino Dinosaur

The new Jurassic Park movie will be totally kick awesome ass!@!@!@!@!!@! FTW

Over at Bloody-Disgusting, this is quickly shaping up to be the Week of News About Sequels You Will Not Want to See -- hot on the heels of yesterday's report about Alone in the Dark II, the site is offering up a bit of incredible (in the worst sense of the word) news about Jurassic Park IV.

According to the item, casting for the sequel -- which has already been confirmed to feature Laura Dern -- is officially under way, with filming set to begin in Kauai later this year. But that isn't the incredible part, oh no. Straight from the article:

We're told that the film is about the government which has trained dinosaurs to carry weapons and use them for battle purposes.

Okay, not that the original Jurassic Park was Citizen Kane or anything, but we remember the thrill of seeing the first movie in the theater, and even though we long ago wrote off further installments in the series as deeply unnecessary, we're really struggling with the notion that anyone on the entire planet would think this storyline is a good idea. It really sounds like the kind of thing that might have been dreamed up by a precocious seven-year-old after a few too many bowls of Fruity Pebbles. Which puts it half a leg up on some of the other stuff we've seen in development, but still -- they have to be kidding, right?
