Just Lust: San Diego Booth Babe Bounty

Actually, another vague thing from the show with a feminist bent. Right at the end, someone was wandering around with a sign reading TWILIGHT FANS RUINED COMICON. Only a lack of paper prevented me fashioning a sign reading PEOPLE WHINING ABOUT TWILIGHT RUINED COMICON and marching around five feet behind him.

Hello everyone. I’ve been off at San Diego Comicon, having adventures. As usual, when you’re actually at the front, you don’t get any of the bigger picture, so I’ve been catching up. And getting a little annoyed.

Damned EA

After a year in which EA have suffered more than even the usual number of curses by beleaguered gamers, it is perhaps only fitting that they’ve announced a game set in that disagreeably toasty place o’punishment that Bible-lovin’ folk reckon the rest of us will spend our final vacation in. There were rumours of a Dante’s Inferno game earlier in the year, and now we get the official announcement, website and trailer.
