Why the Supreme Court’s Ruling on Games Matters - Sessler’s Soapbox

“Yesterday, Adam was very happy about the Supreme Court’s ruling over the California Violent Video Games law and gave you all an early Soapbox. Now after he’s had some time to digest the ruling, The Sess has decided to give you another, much longer Soapbox going in depth about the details of the case. Find out why this particular Supreme Court case matters to you, whether you’re a gamer or not, in this extended edition of Sessler’s Soapbox.”

The Beatles — Marketed By Today’s Music Industry

“This is both brilliant and sad. Not to say that The Beatles weren’t first presented to the world with a marketing facade when they first hit the scene, but it was, in the very least, a unique marketing facade. Would The Beatles be just another generic emo boy group, lumped-in with all the rest? I guess it’s kind of a moot hypothetical, since their influence remains so critical, but it does make you wonder.”

300 Prequel Gets New Title, Narrows Down Directors

“The long-discussed 300 prequel, which was to be titled Xerxes, is not only still alive, but it’s got a new title and its potential directors narrowed-down. While the film’s purpose of telling the origin story of 300’s (historically-based, albeit loosely) Persian overlord, Xerxes remains, the title of the film will now be called 300: Battle of Artemisia. Additionally, it seems that the list of potential directors have been narrowed-down to two. Noam Murro and Jaume Collet-Serra. What can we expect from this bizarre prequel that, for a time, appeared to be dead in the water.”

World Of Warcraft Now Free To Play Up To Level 20 — Just Enough Time To Get You Hooked

“Along with the release of its second major content patch, Rage of the Firelands, for World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, Blizzard has also announced that the massively multiplayer role playing game is now free to play up to level 20. They’ve renamed the trial the World of Warcraft Starter Edition and removed the previous 10 and 14 day time trial restrictions. Now there’s a chance for everyone to get hooked, as playing up to 20 levels of the game gives you just enough time to start caring about your character. They’ll even let you make Blood Elf and Draenei characters, races that were previously only available with The Burning Crusade expansion. All you have to do to start your trial is create a account and download the game.”

Ubisoft Seeking Testers For Mystery First-Person Shooter

Ubisoft is seeking game testers for a mysterious, unspecified first-person shooter. Usually QA testers are employed for several months but this “study” is only for two days, July 4th and 5th. The test is in Canada so participants won’t have to worry about missing fireworks while they play. The company didn’t mention the name, but Ubisoft’s upcoming first-person shooters include Far Cry 3 and maybe another unannounced Rainbow Six. Of course there’s the possibility the study will be for an entirely new game… Excited?
